Brussels From Above - part II

Some continuity in life is sometimes good. Therefor a little sequel to my previous Brussels from Above post from some time ago. I had been years since I had been up in the Atomium, not since it was renewned at least, though it could be much longer, but I found a good reason. Some foreign visitors in town (aka the family in law) on a sunny sunday afternoon. After all the view is great...part II.

there actually was a death ride going on (see the cabels?) from the top of the atomium, adrenaline for sure.

Ignore everyone - Being Poor sucks

Gaping Void is funny cartoonist 'on the back of business cards'. Besides drawing and writing he also gives ideas to creative people on how they have to make money out of their talent. To that goal he started with summing up some do's and don't's. I liked some of them, which I withheld here for you. Read all of them here

1. Ignore everybody.


3. Put the hours in.

4. If your biz plan depends on you suddenly being "discovered" by some big shot, your plan will probably fail.

5. You are responsible for your own experience.

6. Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten.

8. Companies that squelch creativity can no longer compete with companies that champion creativity.

9. Everybody has their own private Mount Everest they were put on this earth to climb.

11. Don't try to stand out from the crowd; avoid crowds altogether.

12. If you accept the pain, it cannot hurt you.

13. Never compare your inside with somebody else's outside.

17. Merit can be bought. Passion can't.

20. The choice of media is irrelevant.

22. Nobody cares. Do it for yourself.

23. Worrying about "Commercial vs. Artistic" is a complete waste of time.

24. Don't worry about finding inspiration. It comes eventually.

27. The best way to get approval is not to need it.

28. Power is never given. Power is taken.

32. Allow your work to age with you.

33. Being Poor Sucks.

Skateboarding Kicks Ass

I love skateboarding and I love good cinema...the both combined in 4 minutes of kickflip slow motions, explosions and a good soundtrack is just great. Fantastic piece of skateboarding footage, from the movie Fully Flared, performed by Lakai skateboarding team.

Art Revolution - Virtual Berlin Wall

A cool initiative is worth spreading and I like this one: http://www.artrevolution-berlinwall.de/

The point being to create a virtual berlin wall online, archiving street art in all it forms and appearances. Nicely ordered by style, origin and searchable by artist. Could deliver a great resource for street art.

Images are not saveable, so I got a screenshot:


I did visit the real Berlin wall as well though , some years ago already. The longest remaining part being a 1.3km long open air art gallery. Cool stuff. Defintely a tip if you go to Berlin!

Due to damage over the years the open air gallery, originally painted by 118 artisits, is now getting a makeover.

Brussels From Above

This morning in Brussels: some snaps from the 24th floor of Hilton. A nice view from above...Unfortunately the windows have not been cleaned on the outside for a while which blurs the view. Anyway, Brussels rises and shines.

Give praise - Saian Supa crew feat Kymani Marley

ky-mani marley

"Give Praise...
My heart is filled with Love
But Don't let my eagles fly...
cos I don't want to have to
hurt no body, no..."

A pearl of a song if you ask me.
Few of you might know so that's why I wanted to share.

Listen and Enjoy.
