I usually find myself listening to specific songs over and over again to the point where I can’t stop listening to it until I hear something new, that will do the exact same thing to me. One of my favorite things is to come across a song on YouTube or Vimeo that I have not heard in years. It’s rediscovery all over.
Here are some of the songs that I play on repeat over and over again:
I discovered British Band Skinny Lister just a few months ago and never stop listening to them since then. Plough and Orion is by far my favorite song. The video below features real life couple Claire & Pete, who I read somewhere got engaged in front of the band, during their Homemade Tour.
This song makes me high! The lyrics is so beautiful! Damien and Lissa are genius. Folks’ cover is one of my favorites. The chorus I think describes how they are needing different things out of the relationship. While the girl seeks to be the fulfilling love that saves him from his pain, he does not see her this way. She can’t help him as she wants, no matter how much she loves him, and he can’t be healed by her. Ahhh damn. Love this song.
Coeur de Pirate’s music makes me feel good. She plays the piano and sings what I guess are wonderful stories in french. I first heard her song ‘Comme Des Enfants’ a year ago, ever since, I’ve been hooked. Maybe I should start learning French. Check her out guys! You will love her! :)
Snow Patrol is one of my favorite band on earth and I am very happy that they haven’t stop creating beautiful songs that are very inspiring. I think, “Called out in the dark” could probably be described as their most catchy and recognizable track to date.
The Cave is an awesome song. It definitely maintains a solid folk feel. I actually think this is even more catchy than their last 2 singles. This song, essentially, tells the listener a story. This is what all good songs should do.
So what songs can’t you stop listening to at the moment?

VOID Watches releases its new collection, V03 Series (V03A and V03B).
About David Ericsson, the brainchild of Swedish label VOID.
David Ericsson (b 1977 in Sweden) has always been fascinated with the process of creating products, from idea to delivery to the end user. After graduating as an engineer from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, he started to work for one of Sweden’s largest industrial design firms, where he gradually shifted his attention towards design. With a technical background, his design approach is often to keep things as simple as possible, but with a unique twist.

About V03 Series
True to form, V03 as the name suggested, is as simple and obvious as the previous ranges, using high quality materials like stainless steel and premium leather with close attention being paid to detailing such as the concentric numbers following the path of time and the discreet branding replacing the normal country of origin markings on the lower part of the dial. The round case with a top ring construction enables the metal ring encircling the dial and mineral crystal to be as thin and sleek as possible, giving the watch a light and elegant expression. V03A comes with an additional alarm function, as indicated by the fourth arrow-shaped hand.

I am a huge fan of online stores. Where else can you do shopping even at midnight wearing your pajamas? And if you’re like me, you would like to avoid the crowds when buying clothes, online shopping is perfect for you. There are a lot of awesome online stores for men and I will be sharing some that I’ve recently found.
My Style: I like to wear comfortable clothing and nothing says comfort like a plain old tee, jeans, and sneakers. I like darker colors like navy, gray, and black. These colors are flattering and don’t show stains or wear and tear from all my daily activities. When I’m in the mood to get noticed, I wear bold prints, such as plaid and madras. My mood shifts and i want to be able to adapt my style to fit my needs at the time. I want easy care, easy wear, and tons of comfort.
Far Fetch. What I like about this store is that their items look like straight from the pages of GQ magazine. Their inventory is from the trendiest, hard-to-find brands. Did I just mentioned that they also offer art, books and magazine?

Mr. Porter. I read somewhere that the content of the website is run by former Esquire editor Jeremy Langmead. I love the website design because it’s clean not like other online shops that are too cluttered and looks busy/confusing. People go to your site and immediately make a decision on if it’s a place where they’re going to spend time and also money at, or if they’re going to lump you in with the thousands of other sites that look just like yours and move on to something else. And Mr. Porter gets an A+ for that. It’s a damn-good looking website.
MR PORTER is the latest offering from The Net-A-Porter Group - the world’s leading luxury retailer. The site features more than 150 of the world’s leading brands including Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, Ralph Lauren, Rick Owens, YSL, Burberry and Lanvin as well as specialist labels including John Lobb, E. Tautz and Lock & Co.
