“All Gone 2014” ist raus. Das Buch des Pariser Kreativen Michael Dupouy. The Red Bulletin schreibt vom “Standardwerk für globale Street Culture”. Das Werk versammelt jährlich laut dem Magazin “die besten Produkt-Releases (Sneaker, Kleidung, Kunstwerke etc.), die ein Jahr Street Culture geprägt haben”.
Leider werden die Erwartungshaltungen nicht erfüllt. Wir finden die übliche Sammlung bunter Produkte etablierter Marken. Nichts neues. Nichts besonderes. Nichts, was dem Anspruch, urbaner subkultureller Trends auf die Spuren zu kommen, gerecht wird. Schade!
“Captcha is our attempt to document and share this moment of the music that surrounds us. We broadcast live video underground music sessions from different locations via streaming and the shows are also archived for future viewing.”
Just awesome, best tunes, nice moods:
In 2012 a few friends and really nice people from Mexico City started to organize events called FuckUp Nights. Basically, people share their stories about failure. Very honest stories. Very valuable stories. Because, you learn more from mistakes. And mistakes are part of business. Yes, important to develop experience. But more than that, mistakes prove the courage someone got to try new things.
For the last two years FuckUp Nights have been evolving in many cities around the globe. But this year probably has been the year of FuckUp Nights. Also, here in Germany are now many cities involved. After kicking-off FuckUp Nights Düsseldorf in April. Which was great fun to organize and being part of. Kick-ass!
Caribou, Four Tet, James Blake, Jungle and more performing at Pitchfork Music Festival Paris. Enjoy the weekend!
