Rad-ical thinking ? Rad Website

Posted on Sep 7, 2015

With the world of e-commerce and on-line shopping becoming more overcrowded than Oxford Street on Christmas Eve, it?s increasingly difficult to stand out from the crowd and get your message across to the poor, old, oversaturated consumer. One website that has achieved this holy grail in its native France is Rad. Rad company was established in July 2012 in Paris by the quartet of David Smadja, Anthony Serero, Simon Amzalag and Julia Serero, as an international online product discovery platform that hosts the latest trends in urban fashion. Defining their point of difference to the congested, populous of other websites. They work with different artists from around the globe who create exclusive designs that they host and sell on their website. Their focus is on hipster clothes and accessories and likens itself to the online equivalent of Urban Outfitters. With a great sense of humour, some might say a little unusual for a French website, but certain not Clothes-Make-the-Man, Rad definitely have their tongue firmly placed in their cheek when it comes to the themes for their product selection. Hipster Churchill, Baron Von C3P0 and out of character glimpses of the Hulk, Wonder Woman and Batman & Robin, this is website, not only worth checking out but for bearing in mind for more thoughtful and slightly off the wall gift ideas for the season to be jolly. Having recently expanded into the UK and Germany and the aim is to hit the U.S. within two years, Rad have some really rather Rad-ical plans ahead for themselves. Related more … Read the full...

10 White Zombie/Rob Zombie Songs Inspired By Horror Films

Posted on Sep 7, 2015

?Finally, the truth about Hitler?s diabolical plans to create a race of superwomen can be told?? Bill Ebbesen / wikipedia Picture Alice Cooper fronting Misfits and you?ve got White Zombie, whose name came from a 1932 Bela Lugosi movie and whose lead singer seemed to have been groomed by Charles Manson. They achieved mainstream success with their third album, La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Vol 1, by which time Guns N Roses and Nirvana were battling it out to be the biggest band in the World, but Rob Zombie?s lyrics didn?t really bring either to mind. Loaded with references to exploitation cinema, and backed by samples from movies most people hadn?t seen, their songs were very different from Paradise City or Smells Like Teen Spirit. The band went their separate ways in 1998 and Zombie released Hellbilly Deluxe, his debut solo album, which gave him his biggest critical and commercial success to date, selling 3 million copies worldwide and spawning 3 hit singles. Superbeast, the first full-length song on the record, takes its name from a 1972 movie where a man discovers a mad scientist conducting genetic experiments in the Philippines. Two years later, Zombie was at the helm of his debut feature, House Of 1000 Corpses, a wild and crazy homage to exploitation films that references everything from the Marx Brothers to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. That?s the thing about Zombie: unlike most other directors, you can picture him at a Drive-in on a Saturday night, paying $2 to watch a movie most people would pay not to see.  These are photos this...

Thinking of applying for Britain?s Hardest Grafter? Read this first.

Posted on Sep 6, 2015

TwentyTwenty productions are looking for applicants for a new television show that has been described as ?Benefits Street meets The Hunger Games?. Are you thinking of applying for the chance to win that staggering £15,000 sum? Here?s what you should know first ? and I am probably doing myself out of ever getting another job in television by writing this article but you know what? Fuck it. Because I wish someone had told me. 1. Only one of you will win that £15,000. It?s also classed as ?earnings?, so you will have to pay tax on it, and National Insurance contributions. 2. The rest of you will be ?recompensed? ?not less than the National Minimum Wage? for your time on the show. Bear in mind that the people you will be surrounded by, the presenters and camera crew and the ubiquitous ?celeb? they?ll roll out here and there, will be being paid hundreds, if not thousands, every day. You will be surrounded by people whose ?wage? will be worth dozens of yours, and some of them will treat you accordingly. 3. The media will trawl through your social networks and dig up and store any photographs they can find as evidence to fit the ?character? they will invent for you. Take my advice and remove completely any pictures of you with a beer in your hand, and DEFINITELY any champagne bottles or glasses. It doesn?t matter to the picture desk whether that?s a Cava from Lidl, they will paint you as a champagne-quaffer at the taxpayers expense. Ditto any photos of you with a fag in your hand (or worse), any party pictures, foreign holidays, shit even any pictures of that Devon caravan park where the weather was good because a little PhotoShop and they can legitimately accuse you of living it up on holiday. It doesn?t matter how private you think those photos are, it just takes one untrustworthy person on your friends list to right click em and save em and forward them on. And believe me, they will contact your friends list for access. It?s not illegal. It?s not right, but it?s not illegal. These days I only drink bubbles from wine glasses, firstly so the Mail can?t get their ?Champagne Socialist? picture caption and secondly if I?m at the kind of party where they?re handing booze out on the door, I need as much of it as possible to peel myself off the wall and talk to someone ? and wine glasses hold twice as much. 4. They will dig out photographs of your children, from Facebook, from twitter, from Instagram, from any personal blogs or websites, from parenting groups, from Mumsnet, and store them to use at their leisure, to accompany any stories about you that they wish. They will name your children. They will speculate on their parentage. They will judge the clothes...
