Samantha Chalker Reader Find

By Samantha Chalker in New Music on Monday 26 November 2012

The Jape boys have clearly been inspired by their recent Australian tour with Dappled Cities. And who can blame them? With their larger than life enthusiasm and twist and twitch dance moves, Dappled gives us all a fair bit to crush on. The great news is that Jape channelled their band crush into a remix. […]

Life in a Day: montage of footage from across the world

Samantha Chalker Reader Find

By Samantha Chalker in New Film on Saturday 24 November 2012

Life In A Day is like the film equivalent of listening to M83 or googling absurdism. Hugely overwhelming and grossly enlightening, leaving you feeling utterly confused about your infinite potential/extreme insignificance. It’s a visual roller coaster. The concept was simple: a montage of footage from across the world shot on one day. But the outcome was magnificent.

By Samantha Chalker in Tech on Monday 15 October 2012

SeatID is an Israeli company set to make your flying experience more tolerable. Gone are the days of being stuck on a flight next to those irksome plebeians who fall asleep on your shoulder, chat incessantly on topics better suited to Doctor Phil, and try in vain to calm their bloodcurdling babies. According to SeatID, flyers are social savvy individuals; of the 5.2 billion passengers that fly every year, 1 billion have Facebook, 500 million are Tweeters and 190 million are on LinkedIn.

Samantha Chalker Reader Find

By Samantha Chalker in Cool Travel on Thursday 11 October 2012

Englischer Garten, or what us tourists might call English Garden, is one of the largest urban parks in the world, sprawling over 3.7km of central Munich. Despite the name, there’s nothing particularly English about this place, except for the surfers attempting to surf an artificial wave being pumped across the mouth of an artificial water stream.

By Samantha Chalker in New Photography on Thursday 11 October 2012

Over the past couple of years, the world hasn’t been short of tumultuous, large scale protests. From the Occupy Wall Street movement to the overthrow of leaders in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and Yemen in what’s been termed the Arab Spring, the fight for democracy across the globe has not been a silent one.
