Two lessons. That’s all I had. One from Luke: learn to float. One from Peter: a basic crawl stroke.[...]Dad’s idea of teaching me was throwing me into the deep end and yelling, “Sink or swim!” Mom refused to help, using her disgust for the lake water as an excuse.
With her debut novel “Learning not to drown”, Anna Shinoda tells the heartbreaking story of a young girl trying to cope with the criminal nature of her brother while her family fails to support and understand her.
I was one of 5000 lucky people in Germany who won tickets to a pre-screening of Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier – thanks, Marvel!

English artist D*Face has just opened his show “The New World Disorder” at StolenSpace Gallery in London:
Damn, it’s almost like I’d forgotten I had a website!! First up, thanks to everyone who made it down to my London show ‘The New World Disorder’ which also marked the final send off, some would say kick out, from the old Stolenspace Gallery and studio maze at the Truman Brewery. We started of in this space in 2005/6 and have seen and been part of the area evolving around us, in truth we’d been incredibly lucky to run such a hub for so long in such a prime spot… just a shit shame we didn’t buy a place instead of painting on them! So closing this space and kicking open the doors to the studios and secret rooms seemed only fitting… if you missed it, it can’t ever be repeated, but like most things can be viewed on line here. To get the full virtual experience, catch some tags on your wall, smoke a joint, make a ‘cabinet mix’ cocktail and piss in the corner of your room… it’ll be just as if you were there!
If you haven’t already, please check the newly located StolenSpace Gallery on Brick Lane: StolenSpace Gallery, 17 Osborn Street, London, E1 6TD. I’m saying its the best looking gallery in London. What you mean I’m biased?!!
Today I met my friend Saskia at the annual Japan Day in Düsseldorf. The German city at the Rhine has the biggest Japanese community in Europe, and they do this special festival every year to show how great and multifacetted the Japanese culture is. The festival is very popular in the Cosplay community and I made an effort to photograph the coolest costumes today. Enjoy! Continue reading →
