All over Innsbruck, Austria, a mysterious man is taking photos with a lampshade on his head to, well, brighten your day. Who is he? Well, it’s not quite a Banksy mystery, but the mystery man is putting more on Facebook each week.
Melbourne’s Hatton Hotel is one of the most comfortable, inviting and restorative places to stay in one of our favourite cities. It’s a boutique hotel done right – simple elegance and quiet luxury, set in ideal location, close to the city, but far enough away to still retain a sense of peacefulness. The Hatton has […]
Wellington is famous for many reasons: wind (the city once recorded a gust of 248km/hr), having the most cafes per head of anywhere in the world, being the home of Peter Jackson and his stunning movies which include The Lord Of The Rings epics, The Hobbit, Avatar (and more) and also for their hip slice […]
St Jerome’s 2013 Laneway Festival in Sydney posed a number of questions for the young, hip crowd in attendance to one of the big festivals that sits just off the edge of mainstream. Would it rain on the festival goers? Could gumboots be risked as possible fashionable items anyway? Who would hit it off with […]
Living on the tiny uninhabited island of Big Major Cay in the Bahamas, these wild pigs swim in the tropical waters, happy to show off their piggy-paddlin’ skills to amazed tourists who regularly visit. The pigs swim out to yachts and boats in the hope of finding a free lunch and are surprisingly adept in the clear salty water. (Let no one mention salty bacon at all)
Wellington’s stunning Museum Art Hotel is one of Lost At E Minor’s favourite hotels – and not just for the luxury, comfort and setting. It comes with an underlying vibe of cheeky fun. Take this example: the beautiful motorbikes on display in the lobby/gallery are regularly taken out for a quick spin by owner, Chris Parkin.
Christopher Boffoli takes wonderfully creative and constructed photos of miniature scenes, with each telling a tiny, often humorous, story. The models, from railroad sets, are so good we’re convinced that artist makes a small fortune.
Te Papa, in Wellington, is New Zealand’s innovative national museum, a modern monument to indigenous Maori culture and Kiwi heritage after the country was settled by Europeans. On a recent visit, we particularly enjoyed the array of art and design, along with the interactive components, and were (pleasantly) grossed out by the giant squid on display, while the geeky Game Master exhibition, featuring more than 100 playable video games from the world’s most influential game designers, spoke to our inner gamer.
To celebrate the official release of Peter Jackson’s latest J.R.R. Tolkien fable, The Hobbit, lucky competition winners were given a trip to Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand, to be turned into fiercesome and brutal Orcs from the movie.
Photographer Wes Naman has captured a series of faces that have been unapologetically distorted by sticky tape. Similar to a series by Douglas Gordon, and as seen in Jim Carrey’s Yes Man, all we can say is the tape in the hair and beard won’t be fun to remove.
Lost At E Minor had the chance last week to re-visit Wellington (nb… the two founders of the site are originally from Wellington), the picturesque capital of New Zealand, and as more people are finding out, it’s not exactly one of those stuffy, pretentious capitals full of cold monuments. No. It’s far cooler than that.
22-year old Ben used to be a glassy in Kings Cross in Sydney, living the life of a student in the city’s coolest spot. Binge drinking took over his life and he lost everything – literally. Watch Ben’s story as he takes us down his path and see how binge drinking can affect your life […]
We’ve been tracking our favourites entrants to Sapporo’s Snow Festival in Japan competition, where entrants were asked to shoot a weekly theme, using Instagram, relating to the fine Japanese beer. Kris Lombardi’s winning image was announced today at midday, with the blazing festival snap winning over the judges.
The Landing Bar hosted Lost At E Minor’s Newcastle based team for a craft beer session to sample the best of the Little Creatures range. Originally a small boutique brewer in Western Australia, Little Creatures has grown into one of Australia’s most successful craft brewers. We talked beer with the White Rabbit brewers and enjoyed the very best that the single batch Puffing Billy had to throw at us.
With selfies, Instagram and duckfaces showing no signs of relenting, The Capes Times newspaper in South Africa took a different approach to telling their readers how they get their stories straight from the horse’s mouth via a first-hand accounts. These cleverly photoshopped famous images are part of a striking new marketing campaign for the paper – even if the arms look a little long.
