Back To The Future with the 2011 Nike MAG



We all watched Back To The Future movies at least once, and I was among the ones who wished the hover board was real. If it’s still not, the good news is that Michael J. Fox‘s shoes from Back To The Future II are. 1500 pairs of the 2011 Nike MAG are currently auctioned on eBay with all net proceeds going directly to The Michael J. Fox ... More
Sunday Roundup on Sudan and South Kordofan

When will international community take action? This is the question asked on Twitter by Susan Morgan, co-founder and the Director of Communications for Investors Against Genocide (I mention them here). Many people are asking the same question right now. I wrote many times about #Sudan and #Darfur and I’m glad I could, for over two decades now (since ... More
Mythic Miss.tic in Paris (with da-eYe)



This woman is more than that. Miss.tic is a modern legend. I managed to see one of her show in Paris, eventually. For years I admired her stencil work in the streets and enjoyed her clever aphorisms mixing puns, wordplay and double meanings. I mentioned her in my previous post titled Grandmaster Flash, Seen, Jordans… Remembering the good old days! and ... More

New Visual Evidence of Government of Sudan War Crimes in Abyei. Here we are, again. Al-Bashir is back, alive and kicking. Hard. Again. And unlike in #Darfur, this time we have proof of what is happening right now, thanks to the Satellite Sentinel Project: ‘The Satellite Sentinel Project (SSP) has released new visual evidence that the Government of ...

Grandmaster Flash, Seen, Jordans… Remembering the good old days!



It was the end of the 1980s and everything was going to change for me. We used to meet in the lobby of the building, the smooth floor was perfect for teenage boys (and some adventurous girls, obviously) to glide and moonwalk. They were also slipping and tripping, a boombox was jamming out hip hop music before we decide to go ‘find a wall’. At ... More
From sgraffiti to graffiti, from Cauchie to Seen

I was first impressed by graffiti, then by sgraffiti. A pun that sums up my first approach with decorative Art. Graffiti Art is now worldwide known but it’s in the mid-1980s I had my first graffiti experience. I remember French artists like Lokiss or Bando, it was a great era even if graffiti were then only regarded like vandalism; at the same time, ... More
Game & Watch: 60 grams of happiness



From Ball in 1980 to Mario the Juggler in 1991, the Game & Watch series was made by Nintendo and created by Gunpei Yokoi (RIP). These handheld electronic games had first two buttons, they used a LED display and had a clock and an alarm; everything could slip into your pocket. Amazing, huh? Well, not that much for today’s criteria on gameplay and ... More
