Sunny


I just found this video on the To Ground Control blog and I had to post it here too. First because this is one of my favourite songs of all time, second because Jamiroquai rocks!

PS. If you like Sunny too, please check To Ground Control for the James Brown version.

Céu is a singer and songwriter from São Paulo. She released her second album this year, called Vagarosa (translated from Portuguese as “easygoing”). The song above is my favourite one of this album, which is much more jazzy than the first one. Enjoy!

Australia based photographer Toby Burrows has an awesome portfolio, really worth a check.

via everything such as

Un Sedicesimo


After the photography overload here, it's time for something a little different I think.

Un Sedicesimo is a very interesting magazine that consists of a mere sixteen pages. Each issue has a different author/curater meaning that each edition is a unique piece in itself. The idea is that is becomes a sort of gallery on paper, with a new exhibition every two months.

Subway, the Passengers




In the 1930s Walker Evans photographed passengers in the New Yorker Subway. Using a 35mm camera hidden under his coat he captured the person opposite unobserved. Really awesome!

Table For One



Keeping in line with great photography, here's another great series I found over on twbe. Entitled Table For One, it beautifully depicts people eating by themselves in restaurants. Photographer Samantha Tio manages to capture the mood perfectly as far as I'm concerned.

The Original Hipster



Amazing series by photographer Julia Chesky in collaboration with art director Ali Lee, based on the childrens book The Pushcart War. I love the idea of using a homeless man as a model, it somehow adds extra character and power to the images.

Fresh M.I.L.K




Two days ago I was browsing for some photography books and I found this awesome one, Fresh M.I.L.K, that celebrates the 10th anniversary of the original M.I.L.K. competition. This time the theme is friendship, family, love & laughter. It's just lovely! Get yours here.

Zach Gill


Yesterday I watched Jack Johnson's DVD, En Concert and I need to post about Zach Gill here. Zach is part of Jack's band since 2006 with his awesome piano, accordion and amazing live performance. Zach is just brilliant, I had the opportunity of watching his performances three times and had the giant pleasure of meeting him in person, he's a real gentleman. For those who don't know him, he's also part of ALO, Animal Liberation Orchestra, one of my favourites!

Thanks to Oniracom for sharing this video, (I did not manage to extract from my DVD)

Hurray For The Riff Raff


Hurray For The Riff Raff is a really cool band from New Orleans, I love the way they mix banjo, double bass, fiddle, accordion, toy piano and the singing saw.

Another photography set that I found and really like: People, by São Paulo based photographer Jorge Brivilati.
