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. []


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 “”, 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,, 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!
