MUNCHIES: Huang’s World

Eddie Huang is returning to our interweb monitors!!

Although the show has a new name, that doesn’t mean the content has changed. In the words of Huang himself:

‘…In place of doing one better, we’ll do what people always do when they say they’re going to do better and do the same damn thing and call it something else. To be honest, we don’t care what you call it. Just tune in and support shows hosted by human pandas like you have the last two years because we’re extremely majestic and endangered i.e. big dick unicorns. Henceforth, the world’s only show hosted by a human panda will be called: HUANG’S WORLD, coming soon to MUNCHIES.’

Event Review: CARBON 2014 // Part Two

Okay so my original plan didn’t work.

My love of words and wanting to share what I learnt at the event took over. But can you blame me? There was an abundance of knowledge that was consumed over that particular weekend and I can’t stress enough how much of a major opportunity it is that we have something like this is our country to experience.

Around other parts of the world, they have an entire season of these events!

But for real, I just couldn’t help it. Sharing is caring, right? #ThankMeLater.

Don’t worry, the visuals have continued for the second part of this review. ☺

Event Review: CARBON 2014 // Part One

So when I’ve reviewed CARBON in the past, I’ve often broken each day and/or night into a separate post.

But this year I’m going to try and flip the switch a little bit.

That is, skip the overload of words (as hard as it as a lover of words) and try and break it down into a review that will engage you and disappoint you that you didn’t attend, but also leave you wanting to purchase an early-bird ticket for next year’s event.

Pretty pictures and videos included.

2014 CARBON Festival

Kicking off at the end of the month on 29-30 March is one of my favourite annual events, hosted by the awesome team over at Melbourne’s ACCLAIM magazine.

CARBON Festival explores the landscape of style, culture and creativity. With forums and panel discussions from leaders in these fields, the two-day event is one of Australia’s premier contemporary festivals.

This year’s CARBON festival will take place at the Storey Hall Auditorium at RMIT University.

Event Review: CARBON Day Two (Part Two)

The breakdown of CARBON Festival has concluded with the final review now up online.

Covering the closure of the Festival with prolific photographers presenting in Forum D, as well as a visual feed of my time in Burn City, the cessation of the weekend was something I was not looking forward to, as it also meant that my time in Melbourne had concluded.

It was truly a bittersweet feeling.

Event Review: CARBON Day Two (Part One)

Last day of the CARBON Festival brought on a bittersweet feeling.

You knew that the end was near but you didn’t necessarily want the weekend to be over. Saturday brought so much to the table. You could only hope that Sunday would bring the same.

Expectations were set, but were they met?

Event Review: CARBON Day One (Part One)

I’ve been transcribing my notes from the CARBON week that I experienced in Melbourne and I didn’t realise how much i had written down! Whilst I initially thought I could break down the CARBON weekend in two parts, I have a feeling that my review this year will be broken down into four parts!

So here is Part One of Day One.

Happy Reading! 🙂

Event Recap: Carbon Festival 2012 – Part Two

Part Two of this Carbon Festival recap features the Sneaker Freaker Swap Meet, Forums C and D, the two-hour live painting session presented by Ironlak, and just a few words to describe the after party for staff and special guests.

All in all, this year’s festival turned out to be a pretty great experience for me (as it always is in Melbourne) and despite a couple of hiccups, the insider information we learnt from those Forums will always overshadow those rather unfortunate moments in Forum D.
