End of the World Survival Kit

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Design on Thursday 20 September 2012

If one thing’s for sure: life is hard. But just remember, if the ‘end-timers’ predictions of a 2012 apocalypse (based on erroneous interpretations of the Mayan calendar) is correct, then things could be about to get worse. Appropriately, a Mexican design firm, MENOSUNOCEROUNO, has come up with a survival kit. They’ve called it Just In Case. Be ready for whatever the end of the world throws at you.

Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku, Japan

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in Video on Tuesday 18 September 2012

A new eatery in Shinjuku’s Kabukicho district mixes sushi and robots for a unique experience. Ten billion yen ($127 million) to build, Robot Restaurant features LED encrusted tanks, cabaret girls and  gigantic fembots steered with joystsicks. For a steep 3.000 yen ($37) admission, you can be served by a Valkyrie ‘robot’ straight out of the game Soul Calibur and enjoy an hour-long caberet of, well, you name it –  Japanese taiko drumming, kimono wearing faux-geishas singing japanese folk songs,  a vinyl-clad marching band, and young girls dancing in army motif swimsuits.  Think Chuck E Cheese with sexbots and sushi – you get the idea.

Linda Farrow: eyewear designer

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Fashion on Wednesday 12 September 2012

Established in 1970, London-based Linda Farrow was one of the first brands to treat sunglasses as luxury wear in its own right. Her products quickly became ‘le must’ eyewear amongst stylish Euro jet-setters, pioneering many of the shapes and styles that are still regarded as fashion-forward. Today, the company collaborates with the likes of Yohji Yamamoto, Alexander Wang, Raf Simmons, Balenciaga, Dries Van Noten, The Row, Oscar De la Renta and Agent Provocateur but having recently opened a store in Hong Kong, Linda Farrow is set to re-assert her place in her own right at the top of the fashion food chain.

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Design on Tuesday 11 September 2012

Everything, including vintage military regalia, fabric and lace, pearls, glass eyes and tiny skulls find their way onto heavily textured, elegant brooches, chokers and necklaces. Sharman also makes intriguing ‘boxes of curiosity‘ in which handpainted dolls are arranged in curious, faintly unsettling tableaux within elegant wooden boxes.

New illustration by Finn Lafcadio O’Hanlon

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Art on Tuesday 11 September 2012

Not many 20-year-olds start their art careers with one exhibition in a mainstream gallery, let alone two. In July, this year, Finn Lafcadio O’Hanlon showed his photographs of disaffected northern beaches youth at Kinokuniya’s Wedge Gallery, as part of Sydney’s Head On Photography Festival.

Sweeter than Cognac

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Food and Packaging on Monday 10 September 2012

Forget the licorice sickliness of pastis and the the deranging legends of wormwood-ridden absinthe, the new hipster drink of choice is Pineau de Charente. In almost as short supply (outside of southwest France) as absinthe, pineau is made from a blend of slightly fermented grape juice and the eau de vie of cognac.

Tasheles art squat in Berlin has been closed

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Events on Friday 7 September 2012

The famed Tacheles art squat, a decrepit, decaying structure when it was first take over, nearly twenty years ago, has been closed and its occupants evicted by police this week. The closure signals not just the end of a vibrant, subversive era in Berlin’s famed art scene, but also a chilling precursor of further evictions across Europeas politicians, inner-city property developers and police collude to support the interests of finance and consumerism.

Horse Thief: (the next Kings of Leon?)

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Music on Friday 7 September 2012

Originally from Flower Mound, Texas, but now based in Oklahoma City, Horse Thief has been wowing audiences south of America’s Manson-Nixon line with rock that’s as much psycho as psychedelic. They’ve been described as the ‘next Kings of Leon’ – another Oklahoma band – but after electrifying perfomances at 35 Conferette and this year’s SXSW festival, they’ve earned a cadre of their own fanatical fans across the country. Horse Thief’s songs are edgy and emotionally compelling. ‘It’s about losing yourself in the sound and creating an experience that sticks with you long after the show is over’, says frontman Cameron Neal. Australian audiences will be able to judge for themselves with the imminent release of Horse Thief’s debut album, Grow Deep, Grow Wild.

L’Apollo Bar in Bordeaux

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in Cool Travel on Thursday 6 September 2012

Since its opening in 1997, Bordeaux’s Apollo Bar has become the throbbing heart of a city whose renovation and revitalisation over the past decade has been nothing short of remarkable. It now vies with rougher, more ethnic Marseille for the title of France’s ‘second city’ but wins hands down when it comes to style and youthfulness: on average, Bordeaux’s population is the youngest in France.

Le Garage Moderne, Bordeaux

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Art on Thursday 6 September 2012

Art and cars, like art and sex, have always had a symbiotic relationship: think Ed Ruscha’s gas stations or Robert Williams’ hyper-inflated hot rod babes. In Bordeaux, Le Garage Moderne takes this to another level. In a quite back lane in the quirky suburb of Bacalan, a huge, grease-stained auto-repair shop housed in an oak-beamed warehouse has become the alternative space of preference for local performance artists, dance groups and emerging artists.

Comic Book City in Angouleme, France

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in Cool Travel on Thursday 6 September 2012

In the early ’00s, Angouleme, in south-west France, declared itself to be la cité internationale de la bande dessinée et de l’image – the international city of comic books and the image. It underlined this claim by hosting a winter comic book festival rivalled in size and attendance only by San Diego’s Comic-Con – although San Diego doesn’t go as far as having excerpts of famed French comics painted on the high walls of its buildings (and, ask anyone, Angouleme’s content is a deal smarter and more adult).

Squatter rights in the UK

Cheyenne Tulsa Contributor

By Cheyenne Tulsa in New Events on Thursday 6 September 2012

This month, the British government revoked laws that protected the rights of squatters. Police immediately began operations to remove around 20,000 people from buildings all over the country. For now, other governments in Europe are remaining tolerant, recognising maybe that  in cities like Paris (notably La Maison de la Plage and La Générale in Belleville) and Berlin, colorful, lively art squats are elemental to the cultural fabric – and yeah, even the economy – of big city life.
