Further: the new album from the Chemical Brothers

Zac Contributor

By Zac in New Music on Saturday 9 October 2010

Further, the seventh studio album from the Chemical Brothers, marks the return to the classic, elegant hooks that set the earlier Chemical Brothers’ albums apart. Further brims with epic tracks that transport you to those great days which turned into epic nights. For me, that’s long, unplanned London summer days. This is an album for […]

Zac Contributor

By Zac in Cool Travel on Monday 23 August 2010

I’ve just returned from a well earned holiday at Heron Island, a natural coral cay off the coast of Queensland. We arrived after a two hour boat trip from Gladstone, and departed with a 30 minute helicopter trip. We walked around the island most days, the trip taking a leisurely fifteen minutes.

Island dreaming at Heron Island

Zac Contributor

By Zac in Cool Travel on Wednesday 21 July 2010

It’s midwinter in Sydney and I’m getting over my third or fourth cold. I need a holiday. And Heron Island, 72km off North Queensland, is booked in to do the trick. Located on a coral cay, there’s diving from your door, and as it’s a protected habitat, there’s a wide array of wildlife — including nesting turtles and an abundance of Australian birdlife. I’m counting the days.

Uncovered 2

By Zac in New Music on Thursday 17 June 2010

So I’ve had this idea for a reality TV show: ask a well known musician or producer to re-record a classic hit of the past. How would, for instance, My Sharona sound if recorded today using today’s production approaches and music styles? I reckoned it’d be an interesting show.

Sin Nombre is a beautiful film depicting the epic quest of two people trying to flee the brutal and gang-controlled world of central America. The film offers a shocking glimpse into the brutally violent world of the Mara Salvatrucha gang, while contrasting this with the stunning terrain and colours of the beautiful land they travel […]

AussieBum’s banana fibre underwear

Zac Contributor

By Zac in New Fashion on Thursday 1 April 2010

It’s crazy that we’re so reliant on cotton for our natural fibre needs, given that it’s environmentally heavy and requires massive amounts of water. Give me wool any-day. Or banana fibre, especially now that aussieBum have launched a new range of men’s underwear in this unique fabric. Banana fibre is made from the bark of […]

Feiyue shoes

Zac Contributor

By Zac in New Fashion on Thursday 13 August 2009

Feiyue shoes have arrived in Australia and I can’t wait to get a pair of these treads on my hoofs. They look like they could be the new Onitsuka Tigers, but with more edge and personality. The story goes that these shoes were big in China in the 1920s, before a brand revival in 2006 got them some traction in Europe. You can join the chat over at their Facebook page or check them out in person via their Australian stockists, Tuchuzy (Sydney), Nique (Melbourne) and Brave New World (Perth).
