Yes Yes, healing When I went to New Zealand , diagnosis I definitely felt like a king for a day, thanks to the good folk at adidas, Show Room 22, and Frank and Ivy Liew of Qubic (http://www.qubicstore.com/) and quarters.

From the moment I got off the plane the new zealand Hospitality was imminent , with a nice hand written welcome note and a few gifts ,including the local Rugby Team ALL BLACKS jersey and a boxset of New Zealand Music Artist hits, which I’ve gladly added to my music collection.

In fact, I had 2 GROUPS of cameras following me, as I made the LATE NIGHT NEWS on TVNZ in their showbiz section…

For those planning a Next GREAT Trip, I would highly suggest New Zealand…

Their Humor is amazin – as we all know from FLIGHT of the Concords and their bungy jumping – look at how their bathrooms look, and their “waiver sheet” , which they call a “toe tag”. HILARIOUS.

The food is pretty dang tasty – they even have REAL ACAI, like the stuff down in Brazil, not that American Crap. This is the only other place I’ve seen this stuff served Proper.They got proper meat pies (pause) and of course there is Burger Fuel, which I think gives In & Out a run for their money as far as Burgers go…

As you can imagine, I can’t wait until I get to hit the other side of the world again… and I suggest that y’all make New Zealand a Destination on YOUR world tour …

Until the next time ;)

Another DREAM COME TRUE, that I never knew I was supposed to even dream. Yeah, I’m geeked out. I was in a video with Han Solo dammit.

from the press release ”

adidas Originals presents the Star Wars™ Cantina 2010:
The most Original place to watch the 2010 FIFA World Cup™


Herzogenaurach, June 1st, 2010 – The latest instalment of the 2010 Originals campaign, “The Street Where Originality Lives,” combines Star Wars, adidas and the world’s largest sporting event in a cinematic first that takes the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ to a whole new galaxy. The film is a creative re-edit of one of the most famous Star Wars movie scenes – the Mos Eisley Cantina on Tatooine – and features David Beckham, Franz Beckenbauer, Snoop Dogg, Noel Gallagher, Ian Brown, Ciara, Jay Baruchel, Daft Punk and DJ Neil Armstrong, not to mention Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3P0 and Obi-Wan Kenobi. This unique film was created as a result of a close partnership with Lucasfilm Ltd.

“The theme of the 2010 Originals campaign is a neighborhood of originality,” explained Tom Ramsden, Global Director of Communications, adidas Originals. “It brings together all elements of adidas Originals and the diverse people who wear it – artists, athletes, musicians, skaters and so on all in one place, doing what they love to do. So when we thought about how to best present adidas’ partnerships with Star Wars and the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, we immediately thought of temporarily turning the Mos Eisley Cantina into a place to watch some football and invite some friends along. The result is a truly unique, original film.”

Here I am, viagra one foot in the old East Berlin, one in the west.

It is a beautiful town and I will recapping my shenanigans here for the rest of this week, as I got to see and do quite a bit.

However, we’ll start with the reason I was out there in the 1st place – The No 74 Block Party! Initially meant to be on May 15th, we had to move it to the 16th due to Rain, BUT the weather gods shined their lights on us and made it a great day regardless….

On this street Torstrasse, a bunch of stores got together and threw a honest to goodness Block Party, Flying myself in alongside Berlins own modselektor . Folk of all types came thru, from kiddies to young hipsters, to grandmamas and papas.

A bunch of brands were present and accounted for – Pauls Boutique, Soto, UndPlus Collabroom, Oh Lalaaa and Uslu Airlines.

Overall it was an amazing event, as captured here by Highsnobiety

Pics from the event as captured by No 74 are here.

The Party got CARRAZY when Modselktor got on, and ended with a massive Pillow / Feather Fight…

AND THEN… AFTER THE SHOW it’s the AFTERPARTY….

Well. In this case, it was a PRE PARTY, as the party was moved to the next day and the afterparty stayed the same on May 15th.
