Still Corners – Berlin Lovers

Berlin LoversThis video for Still Corners’ new single ‘Berlin Lovers’ is lovely. It was directed by Christian Sorensen Hansen and reminds me a bit of Christiane F, but without the heroin. Imagine that Christiane F. and Detlev are a lot more innocent – just two regular teens who don’t inject smack into their veins, or give strangers handjobs for drug money – and this is pretty much it. Considering the song is called ‘Berlin Lovers’, perhaps the similarities aren’t even a coincidence. Either way, I like it.

Urgh.

NO. No, she is not. Now please, just go away, you infuriatingly feckless specimen!

Cartoon Network Turns 20!

Cartoon Network always felt like such a treat for me as a kid. We didn’t have a Sky subscription back then, so I’d never tire of watching endless cartoons whenever I got the chance. London design agency, I Love Dust, created this two minute video for Cartoon Network’s twentieth anniversary and – although I don’t recognise many of the characters now – it still makes me feel all happy and fuzzy inside.

John Lewis: Two Worlds Collided

The new John Lewis TV advert is really beautifully shot and skillfully edited. It shows how the basic elements of romance and relationships transcend time – progress makes our methods of entertainment and communication more sophisticated, but the fundamentals haven’t changed that much. I especially love the girl’s 1920s wardrobe. I doubt I’m alone, and I think that if John Lewis brought out a twenties style heritage collection, it would probably fly off the shelves! The song used is originally by INXS, but the version in the advert is by Paloma Faith.

I Wanna Go Where Nobody Knows…

Loving the new single from Splashh! This band can do no wrong, in my opinion.

Lee Broom’s Modernised Classics

Lee Broom is a furniture designer who combines lighting elements with classic styles of furniture to form a wonderful pastiche of interior design trends.Broom’s crystal bulbs are made in collaboration with experts at Cumbria Crystal, the sole remaining producer of handmade English full lead crystal in the UK. Each ‘bulb’ actually contains an LED light inside, instead of the traditional filament, and this means that the LED can be replaced when it finally expires.
Part of a limited edition of twenty-five, the ‘Electric Louis’ is hand carved in Mahogany, lacquered to a high gloss finish and then accented with neon lighting. This chair is so gorgeously feminine and sexy! It feels really weird describing a piece of furniture as “feminine” or “sexy”, but I think it would work so well in a look book for Agent Provocateur or an Ellen Von Unwerth photograph.Based on a classic Chesterfield design, the buttons on this overstuffed leather chair have been replaced with LED light fittings and capped with a fairground bulb casing. The lights can be programmed to move in the same way a fairground ride would, or they can be programmed to be still.

Eternal Summers – You Kill

Boy meets girl. Boy and girl make friends. Boy and girl go to a party. Girl makes some more friends. Boy misses his chance with girl. Boy takes his way-too-drunk best friend home. Girl wants to stay at party.

Oh, mayyyn!
