The Clinic’s early Christmas party

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Events on Friday 17 December 2010

The funky little office that Lost At E Minor operates from in Australia had a little Mad Men style party the other week. Thanks to our friends at Smirnoff, the Mules and cocktails were flowing and the crowd was in full cheer. Here’s to the fun year that was 2010.

Printed Caravan

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Products on Monday 29 November 2010

Printed Caravan’s range of innovative, artistic gift wrap is welcome, particularly at this time of the year. After all, how does the creative individual wrap gifts these days? I have shunned the dollar-shop’s cheap offerings for my own artwork, brown paper, magazine wrap, even newspaper.

The Establishment Hotel, Sydney

Zac Editor

By Zac in Cool Travel on Monday 29 November 2010

Last weekend I stayed at The Establishment Hotel, Sydney, courtesy of the boutique and luxury hotel specialists Mr & Mrs Smith. This elegant hotel is housed within the same building as The Establishment bar, the three hatted est. restaurant, Hemmesphere cocktail lounge and sushi restaurant Sushi e. With this array of evening activity, coupled with the oversized room and tempting marble and limestone bathroom, it’s no surprise we didn’t venture far after checking in.

By Zac in New Music on Wednesday 3 November 2010

Emma Davis’s debut self-titled album has been on frequent rotation in the Lost At E Minor offices. Recorded out of Newtown, the album is full of delicious melodies which allow her voice to shine through. The killer track is Machines, which you can hear after the jump.

Vanmoof bikes

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Products on Tuesday 26 October 2010

I really love the design lines of Vanmoof bikes. As it is with a lot of great design, a key feature of the bike is what’s not in the product: no gears; no hand-brakes (remember those awesome back-brakes from your BMX as a kid? Well, they’re back!). The lights are built-in and charged via USB […]

The Rocks Push beach shorts

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Fashion on Sunday 10 October 2010

There’s no easy way to say this, but too many blokes who care about fashion end-up looking like kids down at the beach. What looks okay when you’re a teenager just doesn’t cut it once you reach a riper age. To address this gap in the market, new Australian label The Rocks Push has launched a range of well-fitting men’s beach shorts.

The Memory Machine: new album from Julia Stone

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Music on Sunday 10 October 2010

Following on from her brother’s solo album, Australian singer-songwriter Julia Stone has released her own debut album, The Memory Machine. The songs were all written in New York last year while she was in between Angus & Julia Stone tours. These songs could easily have appeared one of the duo’s album. However, having only Julia […]

Further: the new album from the Chemical Brothers

Zac Editor

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 […]

Queensland’s Heron Island

Zac Editor

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.

Tim Neve refits the Lost At E Minor office

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Design on Friday 20 August 2010

Lost At E Minor is run out of offices in Newcastle, Australia, and New York, USA. Our offices in Newcastle were pretty tired and in need of a make-over. Step in interior designer and stylist Tim Neve. Working on a budget of just $500, he achieved something pretty amazing. The guy is a genius at this stuff.

Island dreaming at Heron Island

Zac Editor

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.

Jarritos bottle

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Food and Packaging on Saturday 3 July 2010

Mexican soft drink brand Jarritos has been added to the menu at all Mad Mex locations in Australia. The drinks taste real nice, but we like most the colours and classic bottling even more.

Uncovered 2

Zac Editor

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.

Spoonful

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Products on Tuesday 1 June 2010

Sydney-based writer and designer, Anthea Krook, has created a new publication which aims to bring happiness into our everyday lives. Spoonful is a short but inspiring little publication which, in light of our insanely busy lives, can be finished by the end of a train ride. It’s quick to consume, beautifully soft, and after reading, […]

Sin Nombre: gang culture in Central America

Zac Editor

By Zac in New Film on Thursday 8 April 2010

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 […]
