- Couldn’t resist sharing more of the vaporwave hotel. Wild that it’s seemingly almost untouched architecturally from when it was built. If you’ve got one of those weird vaporwave-style clothing brands, shoot your lookbook here.I’m staying in a vaporwave hotel and it’s now my favourite place in the world. I didn’t get a recording of the jazz that they were playing in this lobby, but I’m sure the architecture makes it easy enough to imagine.Here's something I'm still trying to get my head around - I ended up modelling some bits for @ukmuji's Back to School collection. Fun fact for you, the sticker-covered notebooks you might've seen in one of my recent posts were photographed for the campaign, although the photos ultimately weren't used. I like to think that's the closest anyone has ever come to getting Waluigi in a MUJI ad.Deeply into the '1989 horse racing game on faux marble' aesthetic.One of my big print inspirations at the moment is Tsurutokame, an incredibly stylish fashion magazine for Japanese senior citizens. The photos and page layouts are simply amazing. Great to see a publication with a unique audience that so lovingly balances wit and coolness. You can get a copy in Europe from @stackmagazines.When it comes to nostalgia and video games, the 80s and 90s are often the focus. Nowadays, there's a whole generation of us who cut our teeth in the 2000s. To my generation, gaming nostalgia is Mario Kart over Download Play. It's someone's DS running out of power during an Animal Crossing session and taking everyone else's game down with them. It's playground rumours about Toxic Waste sweets killing people, discussed over PictoChat. It's coming home from school and hunting for Star Coins, one eye on the game, the other on Arthur and Watch My Chops on CBBC. A dog-eared ONM cheats section would never be far. And to think, this was all before anyone had even got their hands on a Wii. It doesn't feel like summer 2006 was 12 years ago.This slightly grim keyring, found in an Italian toy shop by yours truly at some point in the early 2000s, captures Mario's two most obviously iconic features; his ginger hair and his undying support for AC Fiorentina.Finally found the confidence to use some of the stickers I've collected over the years. I haven't even started on finding the confidence to break in the notebooks though.Went to the very stylish and conceptual new Japan House yesterday to look at some weird architecture. Bonus points for them playing Harumi Hosono's 'Pacific' over the speakers.Never won the World Cup but looked cool playing in it 🇯🇵🔥Any Japanese football fans who know how to wash this thing without obliterating it, hit me up!
