One of the most consistent questions we get working in Internet radio is where we get our numbers? Predominantly the question comes from those working in commercial radio and people interested in how we operate and create revenue flow.
If you were slightly worried that nailing that winter look this year – fear not the clever folks at Sunglass Hut have got all sorted for you.
Fashion headmasters have all embraced and modernised familiar 1970s tailoring recently, heralding a new trend in menswear: Professional preppy. The look is characterised by superior tailoring, crisp shirts, bow-ties and the must-have accessory: the perfect pair of sunglasses.
You have heard the Aussie outfit Gotye’s tune “Somebody I used to know”, if you havent I will invoke a piece of that that tired old phrase, “hiding + rock”. If you havent heard it you should have. It’s a great tune with real instruments and great vocals with a proper lyric. There is also no 12 bar rap moment hidden somewhere as a cheap bridge.
It was indie-ish then 5fm played it, destroyed the hipsters love of the band but woke people up to it; then Highveld and KFM picked up and brought it to parts of Bellville and Benoni where it found a new audience who have embraced and will more than likely adopt them as their own and bring on a deluge of remix’s with a euro 4/4 feel and some crap ringtones which purport to sound the same but actual dont but will only cost you R3,50.
The tune and has had a surprising number of makeovers on the net over the past few months, which I have collated below for you; you know save you the trouble etc.
The first is the actual Gotye, which by the way is derived from “Gaultier” (or “Gautier” or “Gauthier”,) the French equivalent of “Wouter” (“Walter” in English.)… So now we know.
The second is a single instrument cover of the tune by Walk Of The Earth – damn clever and a very good cover.
The Third in the rougues gallery of this tune is by Key Of Awesome, who have taken Gotye’s version, mixed it WOFTE and then rewritten the lyrics…I know.
Videos after the jump…
I will admit that I am not the worlds biggest fan of “Sex in the city”. Carrie Bradshaw always seemed to high maintenance for my liking and the older chick just scared me (not that I wouldn’t).
However I am a huge fan of New York, the star behind the stars in this series. I have had some amazing times there and one of the most enduring features of the city, for me, are the loft’s and Brownstones of the denizens.
Which is why this article from the BusinessInsider.com caught my attention.
It’s going to take a real life Mr. Big to get this $9.65 million West Village townhouse off the market.
The 4,100-square-foot townhouse on Perry Street was made famous after it was used as the exterior of Sarah Jessica Parker’s character’s apartment on “Sex and the City.”
Carrie smoked a lot of cigs and cried over a lot of boyfriends on those stairs.
