Memos from September 2011


Daft Punk x Coca-Cola

We’ve seen a lot of col­lab­o­ra­tions lately. Biggest one I recall would prob­a­bly be KAWS x Hen­nessy this past late-July. Recently, after the first set of bot­tles this past Feb­ru­ary1, the new col­lab­o­ra­tion between Coca-Cola and Daft Punk rebooted.

Cre­ated by dress­ing two bot­tles of pre­cious met­als, like their hel­mets: gold and sil­ver. All lim­ited to 20 signed copies.

  1. The asso­ci­a­tion between the French duo Daft Punk and Coca-Cola with the pack­ag­ing and the bot­tle “Daft Coke” recall­ing the sym­bolic col­ors of Daft Punk hel­mets. Lim­ited edi­tion and was avail­able in two col­ors (gold and sil­ver) only in France. The first ones shipped out March 2011. []

ExtensionFM

We all lis­ten to our music using var­i­ous ways, appli­ca­tions, and tools. Vari­ety is the spice of Life after all. So what’s another way to do so…

Exten­sionFM, or “Ex.fm”, is quite use­ful if you use Google Chrome as your pri­mary browser. Add on to that your insa­tiable hunger to surf dif­fer­ent music blogs or sites like: Sound­Cloud, Last.fm, Beat­port, etc… this exten­sion becomes a must-install for users like you.

The Inka Trail

I had the oppor­tu­nity to join a cou­ple of friends some months ago, and travel south to the land of Peru. This coun­try is rich in nat­ural resources I tell you. The weather was nice. We were blessed with mostly partially-cloudy to sunny days in our time in the Andes. I could only imag­ine how it would have been if most of the descent on the Trail were wet and slip­pery due to rain.

Mean­while, I made a quick iMovie video slideshow show­ing most of the high­lights of the trek. I was orig­i­nally going to use Ani­moto to do it but find­ing the right music might have been the lim­it­ing fac­tor as you can only select from a select library from their end. I fig­ured I might as well use what I have and pro­ceeded to cre­ate the following.

Here’s the video. Enjoy!
