Hey, gidday mates! Bonjour, bonjour. First up, apologies if you’ve been having issues with the site for the past few days, the server went down, but we should be up and running at 100% by tomorrow morning at the latest. Jenny and I arrived back from Paris last night, and while I will always love those trips to Europe, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of being in my own apartment, hanging jackets in my own wardrobe, using internet that works properly, eating normal food (like peanut butter and tomatoes on toast) and drinking coffee that’s so strong and so black that a single sip feels like a shot of adrenaline to the heart. GOD BLESS AMERICA.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! This morning, playing directly into Murphy’s hand, I spent a good 90 seconds telling Jenny how great it is that we haven’t experienced a shred of Parisian ‘tude this whole trip. Big mistake. 30 minutes later we were at Telescope; the hipster, minimalist, hand-poured, pretentious yet beautifully designed coffee shop near our apartment. Jenny bumped into something while holding her cup, dropped it, and watched in dismay as €4,50 went down the drain. We apologized profusely and went running for the nearest napkins, while the two guys working the counter said nothing and stared, speech bubbles practically appearing above their heads reading, “Stupid clumsy Americans.”Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Like I mentioned yesterday, on Saturday night I had dinner with Cameron Dallas. I should say THE Cameron Dallas, because the crowd that showed up for the kid at the Calvin Klein show yesterday was rivaled only by crowds I’ve seen for Lucky Blue Smith, Justin Bieber and Will Smith. I’m talking girls in their hundreds, screaming, chanting, crying, the real deal. And proving my age, I didn’t even know who he was. (If you’re old like me, he’s a Youtube star and social media sensation.) Full disclosure, I shook his hand but didn’t talk to him because we were seated at opposite ends of the table, but he did show everyone a Youtube video of a bunch of young dudes eating hair cake, so that happened.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates. The title of this blog post is somewhat misleading, I’ll admit, but let me explain. Back in June during the men’s fashion weeks in Europe, I went along to the No21 by Alessandro Dell’Acqua show, and everybody who was working that show (from the models to the ushers) was wearing one of these T-shirts. I begged the PR team to give me one, and a week or so after I arrived back in NYC, a parcel showed up with this inside. I’m obsessed. Not only is it a striking visual image, but it’s the fashion show equivalent to your favourite band’s tour T-shirt. Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt. Literally.Click to Continue!
Photo: Tommy Ton Did you leave your Christmas shopping to the last minute? Yeah you did. Yeahhhh you did. Me too. It’s not that I don’t love the people I’m buying for, it’s just that I haven’t gotten around to doing it just yet. Does that make me a bad person? It remains to be seen. To help myself (and any other dilly-dalliers out there), I’ve put together a list below of 10 things that I would happily give or receive this Christmas. most of the items are well under 100 bucks, some would work as stocking stuffers, but thereClick to Continue!
