Ed Banger banged my brains out

February 28, 2013 § 3 Comments


Usually I am really not into giving any credit to frenchies. Baby Jesus knows they are full of themselves already. But sometimes even I go against my rules. So I do take my The Kooples wide-brimmed A/W 2012 hat to Ed Banger Records, a French electro music label run by Pedro WInter.

I have no idea how they do this, but they just can’t seem to get anything wrong. And these are 7 living proofs why:

1. Cassius – I Love U So

Houuuu. I love you so. But why I love you I never knowww.

Makes me want  to get a leather jacket, a gap between my teeth and a silver lipstick.

2. SebastiAn – Embody

Apparently, Daft Punk said SebastiAn delivered the best remix they ever had for “Human after all”. Geniusssss.

Plus, I’m pretty sure that adoption rates in Africa must have skyrocketed after this video got released. Should-get-nominated-for-some-humankind-saving-award-MUCH?

3. Kavinsky- Nightcall

Featured on the Original Soundtrack of “Drive”. Starring Ryan Gosling.

“I’m giving you a night call to tell you how I feel. I want to drive you through the night, down the hills”

Oh god. I think I’ve just died inside. Multiple times.

4. Justice – Dance


5. Uffie- Difficult

Miss Voice of Justice’s The Party is having way too perfect hair day.

6. Breakbot- Baby I’m Yours feat. Irfane

Usually I am pretty modest when it comes colors. I’m talking, beige is as exotic as it gets when I think outside the black&white box. Sometimes navy blue and ash grey, but just for the loco days.

I know some peeps would argue with this given my pretty extreme nail polish choices, but still, I think I am the stage in my life where I can comfortably say that I hate colors (#hatersgonnahate).

But the video. I want my wedding day to look like this. So in love with the whole watercolor painting thing going on ( they say aquarelle in french, way more sexy).

7. Breakbot- One Out Of Two feat Irfane

Most of the times I don’t like french chicks. Because they all are tiny, dark and beautifully mysterious. Biatches.  Someone’s really  being a hater today.

BUT  after watching this video even I suddenly feel like having a girlfriend.


It’s Ed Banger’s 10 years anniversary party in Paris in 3 days with, get this, ALL artists under the label performing.Which I am of course here for.

I think I am looking forward to this day way more than to the day my first kid will be born. Tell me about the need to grow up?

Also, tell me what to wear.



The Odds of Finding Life and Love

February 18, 2013 § 1 Comment

At first I was a little skeptical about calculating the probability of finding love. I mean blondes don’t do math. Law of nature. Full stop. We believe in Wonderbra ads on TV shopping channels, reviews on Makeupalley.com and sweet-talks by beautiful strangers. And unicorns.

But  this guys is pretty damn good at convincing. I mean “because we can trust Karl” (Lagerfeld?) is the best argument I have heard in freakin ages.

Post Asia Crisis

February 17, 2013 § Leave a comment


I do have to admit that traveling in South East Asia was one of the most profound and life-changing experiences I have ever had.

Mainly because I survived 5 weeks without a hairdryer, went trekking through a jungle barefoot and had to share my bathroom with like 20 people.

That being said, here goes some photos that I stole borrowed from George Lim, this kiwi guy with a massive camera that I met when traveling. I actually did not know that I could bend in such ways. Raging hormones when the sun goes down, anyone ?


But the life back in Europe is also not easy. I am officially experiencing a Post Asia Crisis.

I spent the first 5 days laying in my bed in a fetus position eating rice crackers and listening to Oasis’ Wonderwall on repeat. Which was a major bummer because my tan faded away without my friendenemies getting a chance to see it and get jealous.

I also spent hours and hours on Won Hundred’s website drooling over  S/S2013. Which was even a bigger bummer as rice crackers is as much as I can afford at the moment.

Now I am considering getting a spray tan (if my credit card doesn’t get declined), turning all the heaters on at home and watching YouTube videos of sea. In HD.

The highlights of the last couple of months

February 16, 2013 § Leave a comment


While I was lost in the South East Asian wilderness (see above),  the last couple of months proved to be oh-boy-so-intense in the global arena. So here goes the three most world-changing events (just in case you were lost in some wilderness as well).

1. In Europe, the pope announced his resignation.

This means that I can now freely and openly feed on birth control 24/7 without being condemned by the church. Not that this would matter anyway, as my parents pulled the hippie card on me, “forgot” to baptize me and basically raised me as an atheist brat with no religious values what so ever. Thanks Parents.


2. In Asia, North Korea launched yet another nuclear test and threatened to take actions against South Korea if they complied with the new UN sanctions.

As much as I will miss soldiers wearing BB cream, K-Pop and sneakers in neon colors, it was rather perfect timing for me to flee Seoul. At least I saved my mom a couple of sleepless nights (but then again, my gin & tonic adventures back in Europe may cause her even greater lack of sleep than missiles, so not sure if I actually did her a favor).

I am also feeling pretty fortunate that my 20 pages essay on how Unification, Peace and Love are coming to the Korean peninsula got graded before the whole Pyongyang’s nuke party in January.


3. In North America, Kanye impregnated Kim Kardashian.

Being a pop cultural anthropologist I find the two of them to be über fascinating overhyped famewhores, which I hear is actually a compliment in the US.

Plus I watched the episode of “Keeping up with the Kardashians” where Kanye bought Kim enough cloths to dress 10 generation of her ancestors in Armenia. Must be true love ❤ .


Where Am I?
