Henry, 23, London -  - TrendGiveAfuck

I was visiting this vintage market on Brick Lane the other day. Had a conversation with this guy about interesting clothes to wear, like these mad pair of boots he actually was selling but unfortunately didn’t fit me.

It took me a good amount of time before I noticed that he was wearing clothes older than myself, including a top hat! Surely, being so confident in his own style that strangers don’t even notice him dressing a bit different is pure TrendGiveAfuck!

Blackout Crew – Put a donk on it -  - TrendGiveAfuck

a very round, attractive ghetto syle booty

damn, i wanna hit that fine donk.

Though these guys are wrapping about donks, their dancers are just nice and tight.

Ahem, anyway, donk’s supposed to be the new smash hit genre with the first electro boy-band in ages -- Blackout Crew. But is it worth the hype?

I think not. Sounds just like trance meeting eurodisco. Fast beats and no depth. People might object, but I prefer drum&bass and dubstep any day!

What do you think?

Shunt – Dean Gibbons and the knowledge of death5 Apr 2010

Shunt – Dean Gibbons and the knowledge of death -  - TrendGiveAfuck

Shunt is a gigantic cellar themed pub, it’s entrance through a small door right in London Bridge underground station. Three bars, many chairs sofas and tables, fresh and damp air (it used to be a wine storage), short film cinema, experimental music, still image and object art standing or hanging here and there.

I went there without much expectation, except for the tempo to rise after twelve or something, which, unfortunately, didn’t happen before I got too tired and went home. The club seOne, a really captain club under London Bridge, had similar huge cellar vaults but is now closed :(

I did enjoy the very cozy place of Shunt and spent a couple of hours there, enjoying the magnificent atmosphere and mixed-form art, and look forward to going there again, now without expectation for tempo. Perhaps they will surprise with some lounge music next time :)

TK Maxx – Give up your clothes for Good1 Apr 2010

TK Maxx – Give up your clothes for Good -  - TrendGiveAfuck

TK Maxx, United Kingdom, is taking clothes donations from 5th to 25th of April! Earnings from clothes collected and sold will go to Cancer Research UK. Click here to visit their page

For the really trendy ones, TK Maxx also has a Celebrity Auction on eBay, if you want to buy the REALLY posh cloths worn by someone famous, you know, those who buy one outfit for £1.000.000.000.000, wears it just one evening, and usually throws it away.

TK Maxx isn’t the only shop selling 2nd hand clothes, and not the only one taking clothes donations. Personally I think they are just trying to earn some false good will to attract more bohemian customers.

Plan B – night clubbing in Brixton -  - TrendGiveAfuck

I was out and about viewing a temp room to stay in the next coming weeks, so I kinda missed “little Saturday”. I was careless enough to tell you about this really cool club in Brixton, London – Plan B – where you can get old school hiphop, r&b and house.

And, best of all – their website is really slick!

BLOC Weekend 2010 photos! update x315 Mar 2010

BLOC Weekend 2010 photos! update x3 -  - TrendGiveAfuck

It’s Monday evening and we just came home from bus rides, planes and hangovers (actually, we’re still hungover). BLOC 2010 was a blast! – I haven’t had this fun a party since last BLOC, and I’m pretty sure The Licious can’t disagree. We had a real captain time, seeing Salt n’ Pepa (!!!), Roots Manuva, Autechre, Anti, Derrick May, and many others – dacing our asses off, partying with our very good Briton (and New Zeelandish) friends, talking with all of you really captain BLOCers, and taking loads of photographs! Thanks for everything!

Oh yeah, ya wanna see the photos? Stay in line and behave – here’s the status:

BLOC Weekend – Friday 13th
BLOC Weekend – Saturday 14th
BLOC Weekend – Sunday 15th

Ta ta for now – I’m off to the jacuzzi for a rest and to reflect upon the past weekend
