Cool for the summer

Never been a fan of hers, but I must admit I have been addicted on this pop gem for few days now 🙈

Freeek!

I think that George Michael made an incredible video back then and even now, it’s timeless and one of the best music videos I’ve ever seen. I really miss the times when they used to make nice videos and make people anticipate to see them. This video is enough to realize that Lady Gaga isn’t really the pioneer of weird stuff.

Extravagant Inventions: The Roentgens’ Berlin Secretary Cabinet

“One of the finest achievements of European furniture making, this cabinet is the most important product from Abraham (1711–1793) and David Roentgen’s (1743–1807) workshop. A writing cabinet crowned with a chiming clock, it features finely designed marquetry panels and elaborate mechanisms that allow for doors and drawers to be opened automatically at the touch of a button. Owned by King Frederick William II, the Berlin cabinet is uniquely remarkable for its ornate decoration, mechanical complexity, and sheer size.

This cabinet is from Kunstgewerbemuseum, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, and is on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in the exhibition Extravagant Inventions: The Princely Furniture of the Roentgens:http://www.metmuseum.org/en/exhibitio…

Amazing Carved Candles

I was fascinated while watching this video, finding out about this new way of making candles, beautiful carved candles that is. The degree of mastery of the craftswoman in this video is admirable. I never saw one of these candles in a shop before, I am sure they look even better in real life and when they are lit on. I wonder though if anyone will dare to light them up constantly by fear of melting them 🙂

Ever wondered how your instant coffee is made?

I am not a big fan of instant coffee or coffee in general but I must admit that a caffeine dose is needed at times to make it through the day. I remember having instant coffee especially at times of exams, projects and almost every morning at work, and today I remembered that a few months ago, either I read or someone told me that instant coffee is not good due to how it is manufactured as in it’s bad for the health and I never bothered to check this out. So I decided to search about its manufacturing process and I found a video that is quite interesting and educating. However, I failed to see how it can be bad for health, there’s no additives nor chemical ingredients. If you’re curious like me to see how instant coffee is made, check the video below:

Sophie Ellis-Bextor – Love is a camera (Video)

I’ve been a fan of Sophie ever since she released Groovejet with Spiller and fell in love with her british accent starting from Take me Home. I think that she is  on a league of her own and her music puts her on a different range than many of the mainstream garbage music frequently played on radios all over. Sophie released earlier this year her 5th album, Wanderlust, and it was a new turn in her genre of music, it’s not pop, not dance and not purely indie. It has influences of music from eastern europe mainly, some ballads and waltz as well. At first listen, it might sound awkward even for a Sophie fan but afterwards, you’ll find out that it’s such a great album with solid production, lyrics and melodies.

Sophie released today the video for the 3rd single to be taken from Wanderlust which is Love is Camera. The first two singles were Young Blood and Runaway Daydreamer and I think their videos were not that great, unlike this new video which was shot in Florence, Italy and has a nice yet creepy kind of storyboard that goes along very well with the lyrics.
