Shaving your head decisions

Woke up fifteen minutes after I was supposed to be at work. Head aching. Snoozed the mandatory couple of times (what’s up with that I never snooze) then got up. Face in the mirror was a depressing sight, hair worse. It’s just when it’s about to become the annoying mon chi-chi. You know where it’s exactly too long to look good but too short to be nice.

Well, this was just before that stage. Should I shave it? Of course not, I’m late. So I got into the shower, second reason was cause I wanted to wet it so I wouldn’t shave it. Got out. Still depressing sight for the eyes. Quickly dried it rubbing my hair with the towel. Plugged the clipper in and started going full throttle.

It is by far the weirdest shaving head decision yet. Except for when I actually shaved it the first time this summer. From any other random Tuesday going to bed at eleven to suddenly shaving it. But this was the second weirdest. Easily.

More fun on Twitter

You know when pure letters aren't sufficient on Twitter and you just feel the deep deep urge to add emoticons but regular ones aren't enough? Well look no further homeboys and twitter-bitches. salvation is here. Like a jungle of emoticons. Still missing the thumbs up fucker tho. How hard can it be to create that puppy.

It's just so fucking good that I don't care how many time I post it too much

Bon Iver playing "Skinny Love" at a Soirée de poche ("Pocket Party") in Abbesses, Paris, France



Performance of the decade? Or no wait. That's pretty much what every live show I've seen them do.

Really cool. Stolen from here.

Not sure if it's some artist or ad or whatever but it is cool

She is awesome

Even though my personal dispute with her, she rocks. You can't neglect awesomeness! Wednesday is concert. Carambahurrah! in advance. Like how they made it disco too. OGriginal version is slooow and pretty.

They have plans on building this multi-pool here in NYC. Despite the fact that it'll over-crowded we love the initiative. Read more here.

Pick-up game!

On 6th Avenue, just above Housten they love to play pick-up games.

It's very popular

This occurred on one of NYC's hottest days as well, so we only managed to stay for a little while. See, when it's this hot you have to keep moving. The breeze you catch when walking trumps the exhaustion of walking

None of the players were in shape. At all. But it made the event even more lovely

On Great Work's rooftop


Broadway

Guy who works in the building at The Onion (!) comes up and starts chatting. "So you guys must have been here for the epic Burton party a couple of weeks ago?"

Turns out Burton also sits in the building (tons of awesome brands in this building actually) and every year they have this insane rooftop party. Turns out Fredrik, who works at Great Works and should be the man with the plan, had no idea about this. He didn't even know they were in the same building (he didn't know The Onion was there either, but since they're not responsibly of the epic rooftop parties that happen once a year, we can do without that bit of information).

So kudos Fredrik for the awesome party we never attended. Great work.

This happened just when we were about to leave from my partay

Unclear. Very unclear.

Sarajane's birthday picnic!

Yesterday was easily the hottest day on the history of earth. Not just temperature-wise but also humidity. It was more than 1000% humidity. FACT


So Sarajane thought it was a good decision to throw a picnic and celebrate her birthday. Now this might sound good, but it was gruel. No place to hide, just out there in the open. Enduring.

Sarajane! I gave her a VHS of Sex and the City and a hand-clapper. You can see the latter there beside her. It's green and shaped as a hand.

They had bought 1000 kilos of strawberries and I had forgot to eat lunch so I ate strawberries for lunch. Tres bien!

Richard, Nathalie, balloons and birthday girl.

Handsome and always awesome Jon was obviously there.

Pierre and Kane needed to take a nap. So they took a nap.

Sandra came and shortly after the sun set but it was already 10 o'clock so we went home to me and continued the party. Bravo day/night!

Plane crashes that people survived from

Not sure if it's due to last night's Hyper Island party and how you feel the day after. But this could be a metaphor of how I feel right now. Not too bad to be fricking frank, but skipping/missing dinner and rely on the finger food at the party is not overly wise. Cucumber is not pasta.


An American Airlines Boeing 737-800 skids off the end of the runway in Kingston, Jamaica, after landing in a rainstorm on Dec. 23, 2009.


About 23 minutes after departing Hilo, Hawaii, an Aloha Airlines Boeing 737 experiences an explosive decompression at 24,000 feet after a large section of roof rips off just behind the cockpit.

After seeing blue sky behind him, the captain successfully maintains control of the airplane and lands at the Kahului Airport on Maui. Of the 95 people on board, 65 are injured, eight seriously. One flight attendant dies after being blown out of the airplane.


Landing in a severe thunderstorm in Little Rock, Arkansas, an American Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD82 skids off the end of the runway and breaks apart after colliding with guidance lights on the ground. The captain makes the decision to switch runways before the airplane lands and ends up landing on a runway where the crosswind exceeds the limit for the airplane.

The pilots neglect to use the automatic braking system and spoilers on the wings that aid in slowing down the airplane after landing. After sliding past the end of the pavement, the airplane hits the structure that holds the lighting system for guiding pilots to the runway. The captain and 10 passengers die in the crash; 133 people survive.



On Aug. 3, 2005, an Airbus A340 operated by Air France lands at Toronto Pearson International Airport in gusty winds and strong rain. The pilots touch down 4,000 feet past the end of the runway and are unable to come to a stop in the remaining distance left.

After skidding off the end of the runway, the airplane catches fire. The crew successfully evacuates all of the passengers. There are only 12 serious injuries among the 309 people on board.

OMG Good

The rendition of Radiohead's Creep by the Belgian choir for the Social Network trailer. It's quite magical. Movie might actually be better than your first assumption too actually. But this song made the trailer fly.

Side note kudos/nice is how they have tons of amazing songs by famous artists.

LEGO Tattoo - don't fucking know about this....


Yes, it's from LEGOExpress.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros at Governor's Island

EPIC. So fucking good. That is even considering when they came on 1 hour late and had a totally weird and impromptu break after two songs for 45 minutes.

First two videos are 40 Day Dream. Second two are Home.

Fab Bowling

We all celebrated Fabian's birthday by bowling at Brooklyn Bow. It was fun. Oddly I didn't win even though I looked to be in the lead after half. This is showing a belated bday as you know.

Watermelon Kid FTW

The Shivers are the bomb

This little pearl, 'Borderline' is one of my new favorites. What we also love about this is that it's a live performance. Even though you can see jack shit.

I had a dream the other night
I was making love like I was alright

I don't have no shame anymore

Converse respect



In 2008 Converse teamed up with Santogold, Julian Casablancas and created "My Drive Thru". Which was epic gold. This summer they launch this awesome summer song, "All Summer" with Kid Cudi, Rostam Batmanglij from Vampire Weekend Bethany Cosentino from Best Coast. It’s quite lovely.

4 tees

One when I run. This one gets so drenched I would change it during the run if I only could.

Second one is changed to immediately when I get back. The first transition tee. I usually pull off some stretching and perhaps one set of exercise (static training - just learnt a new routine. Which is probably the most painful thing I've ever experienced. Didn't even know it was possible to summit such pain without moving).

Then I change to the third one. Which is beyond too wet way before it should be, but I keep it on anyway throughout the next couple of workout sets.

Fourth one I sit on the whole time to not ruin the floor.

Being able to cope and handle humid heat is awesome.

Yes, I make it with only two pairs of shorts.

The Writer Who Could Not Read



Loved this short little story. Imagine waking up and realizing that you can't read. But since the eyes only sees the words and letters and brain detects them as words and sentences he had to to be creative to find a way to write.

"Engel couldn't see words with his eyes. His visual cortex was broken. But he could "see" when he used the motor part of his brain, first by tracing letters on a page, then by "writing" those same letters in the air, and then, strangely, when he shifted to copying letters with his tongue on the roof of his mouth. Tongue-copying was the fastest.

Probably the best score ever


Exception of Transformers, of course. Zack Hemsey, I want to have sex with you. To this trailer music, of course.
