The Terrace Bar in Newcastle, NSW

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in Cool Travel on Thursday 29 November 2012

The Terrace Bar in Newcastle, about two hours north of Sydney, is a new small bar and alternative arts/underground music venue with the feel of a San Francisco divebar. A wide variety of craft beers and famous local Hunter wines are available, while local and visiting must-see acts perform in the venue’s intimate gig room. The atmosphere is cool, relaxed, and different to most nightspots in the city – think less meatmarket, less hot TV screens, and more vibe, hipster-chic.

Available in a range of sometimes cute, sometimes outrageous, vibrant designs, including Space Invaders and Pac Man, the glasses have a number of tiny holes which allow you to see quite well, which is perfect to watch reactions of friends and total strangers.

A full scale RGB book valued at $3 million

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in New Art on Friday 7 September 2012

Tauba Auerbach presents the RGB color scheme in a hard-copy reference volume of all the colours in existence. We estimate, with ink around $40 for a printer cartridge, that this would have cost around $3 million to print. Give or take. You can see a small number of them at the Museum of Modern Art […]

By Tristan Rayner in Cool Websites on Friday 18 May 2012

Watching tourists recreate The Beatles’ famous Abbey Road album cover on the world’s most famous zebra crossing is quite a fun time-waster. London locals avoid the area like the plague, knowing they’ll be forced to wait to watch the next group strut their stuff, day or night.

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in New Events on Friday 11 May 2012

Cirque du Soleil is an event shrouded in Franco-Canadian mystery. If you haven’t been, you wonder if a synthesis of circus styles could really reduce people to babbling superlatives when they return. Or if they’ve been bought. This isn’t a normal show of strength, flexibility or prowess. It’s a full five degrees of difficulty more than anything you can expect. Think one-footed unicyclists flipping metal bowls from their spare leg onto the head of another smiling-peddling-balancing-bowl-catching rider. Add costumes, colour, light and music, and you’re only starting to get warm to the spectacle that is Cirque. Read on for more images and a special offer.

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in New Music on Friday 13 April 2012

We predict that the Lenny Kravtiz story will eventually be told as a description of how the fountain of youth was tapped, sealed, and piped hot into every home. Lenny’s return to Australia in March for the first time in 18 years showed us a forever young rocker, still full of energy, voice, and love. So much love.

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in New Eco on Friday 23 March 2012

Imagine a spot of night swimming at your local beach, only to have the shoreline and waves glow an ethereal blue at any sign of agitation. The images here are from Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives, a place where a concentrated population of bioluminescent phytoplankton exist, much to the delight of photographers who snapped these pictures. These concentrations are a field of study all to itself – potentially harmful, always stunning.
