Less than 11 hours till we start the Global Divestment Day rally in Sydney! Come along if you are free around 12pm. The rally will take place at Commbank HQ at Darling Quarter and we will ask Commbank to halt its potential investment in Adani's Abbot Point project that risks the priceless Great Barrier Reef.

Metadata Retention

Video footages from an event held last week at Harold Park Hotel in Glebe on the issues of metadata retention, global surveillance and the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership), featuring Scott Ludlam, Samantha Castro and Jacob Grech.

I unfortunately missed the panel but the lovely organisers put up the vids onto youtube. Gracias amigo!

Personally I think it's always nice to hear more voices on important issues like internet neutrality and privacy. The footages are a bit lengthy so when you've got some time at a break, grab a cup of tea and just enjoy.

spring trainers

Nike Air Max 1 here / Christopher Kane slip-on here / Topman faux-leather slip-on here (adlink) / Adidas EQT here / River Island hi-top trainer here / Adidas ZX Flux here

A few new-on-the-virtual-shelves leather-free trainers for the new season (spring or autumn depending on where you live). I'm especially in love with the Nike ones, with its orangey colour blocks and the signature Air Max sole, fresh, sporty, a lil' funky yet simple. Perfect to spice up a minimalist's outfit (plus orange is the new black per the new Zara campaign). With monochrome spring coat, cropped trousers and a simple t-shirt like this one from Acne, say hello to the dream outfit.

New jacket from the Reclaim Vintage line at the ASOS sale here. Had a tough long exhausting day yesterday so I guess this is sort of a reward. Unfortunately I think I got the last one in stock and am having problems finding a similar one (unless you count this wool one from Moschino here), but keep looking 'cause they may get more stocks or returns later. Also let me know if you come across a more affordable and vegan-friendly 'dupe'.

new sound - Czarenne

A friend of my friend debuted 2 weeks ago as a one-man-band with this EP. Unfortunately I couldn't attend the launch party but the tracks are out for purchase and on spotify now and I'm quite digging the sound (bias aside). The vocal reminds me much of Timo Kotipelto (vocal of Stratovarius, 90s flashback anyone?) and overall it's less hardcore than what I usually listen to and quite 'versatile' in the sense that it's easy to listen to however your mood is for the day.

Like his page on facebook here (where you can stalk the talent for some live performance around Sydney region)

Stunning coat, wishlisted in a sec
ZARA released its SS15 campaign looks earlier this week and it's still very very ZARA: minimalistic and clean but with a twist of colours that are usually associated with AW seasons. Can't wait for these to hit the stores soon, although we in Australia will probably have to wait for another 6 months. /insert sad emojis
