OCTOBER BLACKLIST 2011

OMG WTF BBQ IT’S THE NEW BLACKLIST

RUGBY WORLD CUP

Who would have thought? The Rugby World Cup has been awesome, at least in Auckland where all the important games have been played. The centre of the city and the waterfront are alive for the first time in years and the drinking, vomiting and fighting in the streets has been quite epic to behold. Actually we haven’t seen much vomiting or fighting, but it’s been happening anyway. The main thing is the best team (the All Blacks) is going to kill the other guys (the French) like frogs to the slaughter, which is great as it’s justice for all the nuclear bombs they tested in our backyard, and for the boat they blew up in our harbour. Then we will make Carré d’agneau a la Provençale, speak in bad French accents for the rest of the night and vomit everywhere

L’ASSIETTE’S FRENCH ECLAIR

After we’ve finished our Frog Provencal, we’ll have one of these for dessert. They are a just dessert, for people like us, being both creamy and delicious and hugely rewarding for the effort of lifting the calories all the way to our mouths. You can get one of your own down Britomart Place after the big game

ANTHEM HOODIES

We only made 30 of these as a test for all the cool shit that we’re hoping to have out in the shops in time for Christmas, but already we have random strangers arresting us in the street demanding to know where this garment was purchased. Watch this space – no, not literally as Word Press doesn’t have a shop – as there will be 5000 kinds of mean as cuz coming at you in the near future

TASCHEN BOOKS

Let’s get one thing straight – Whatsisname Taschen a fucking legend of the highest order, and we will very likely meet him and shake his hand one day. He has made works of inestimable beauty affordable to the lowly and impoverished such as ourselves. We’ve never seen one we wouldn’t own. Deadset legend

CUSTOM STICKERS

Gregory Sea Biscuit and some guy called Kyle make our stickers for us. They also made this banner. They’re not half bad, or at least Kyle isn’t. Give them some work if you need banners or stickers or a bit of lawn mowing

THE EATING HOUSE

Every now and again a restaurant comes along that you know you are going to have a long love affair with. The Eating House on The Terrace in Wellington is just such a place. The surroundings are convivial enough as long as there is no over excited teen band playing, but the food? The food is so wonderful you can forgive it anything. Chef Jonathan England has got all the simple things right, which is usually the best place to start, and the result is charming and unpretentious menu exceptionally well executed. It’s pretty much the opposite of us then

PUMA SOCIAL CLUB

Gentleman’s wet dream where pool tables meets arcade games meets promo girl action meets burgers and red bull and super fun times – and most of it is free. Set up by Puma for the World Cup, everyone is asking why no one has encountered this masterful concept before. We filmed there and it as about as cool a set as we’ve ever worked on. Take your date there and She / He / It will think you are the most fun thing since the Romans invented death by spectacle

SUMMER

The end of long, cold and dark days, layered dressing and pretending you can ski if anyone asks. Enough said

CLIENTS

We have some. We just won a few more. They give us money. We love them! Thanks guys! You’re better at that sort of  than our parents ever were, and WAY less abusive

ROWNTREE FRUIT GUMS

Do you like sex? Do you like travel? So do we, and these incredible fruit gums from Rowntree make the perfect compliment to either. They are one of Britain’s better inventions and you can sometimes buy them at the English Lolly Shop on Customs Street, Candyman in Mount Eden, and more recently – and reliably – the New World in Victoria Park. These little pastilles of intense fruit flavoured goodness are so chewy they will pull all your fillings out in one go. These gums are an adult lolly and we do not recommend them for children, unless you hate children in kind of passive aggressive manner
