PIXEL winebar in Brussels: pixels and wine

The PIXEL winebar opened in 2009 in Brussels, Belgium. As soon as we saw the photos on the website, we ‘geekly’ said: ‘This place is cool!’. You know, pixels remember us (by us I mean mostly me and Max Dana) our favorites video games from the NES. And wine, because we are proud members of the Sama Epicurean Fraternal Society and we appreciate drinking good wine -with moderation. We didn’t go there yet but our friends at ...


Segway with a saddle: Taurus Concept by Erik Lanuza

The Sun has come, time to post about unicycles and look alike! In February we posted about Skoota electric scooter by Stuart Emmerson but the ‘Unicycle Series of Posts’ started with eniCycle: electric unicycle for lazy circus clowns in August 2009; in September, we introduced you to the YikeBike: YikeBike: high wheel bicycle of the 21st century, and in October, it was about the Honda U3-X: Honda U3-X: motorised unicycle from Japan. ...


Neverend Clocks by Dan Funderburgh at Furni

Our Twitter friends @coolhunting published an article on their website about Kitsune Noir, Dan Funderbergh and Furni‘s subversively modern take on the cuckoo clock. We also read the news on Kitsune Noir’s blog and when we saw the retro/classic Bavarian cuckoo clock style of the Neverend Clocks, we thought: ‘It would be perfect to hang on the walls of the Sama Gazette!’ Here are the details about the Neverend Clocks: – ...


Bell & Ross Watch for Peugeot SR1 Car

A quick news about a wrist watch that may interest many of our Sama Readers: Bell & Ross dashboard and wrist watch for Peugeot SR1 car. Bell & Ross will launch this month at the Geneva Motor Show, a dashboard and a wrist watch for the Peugeot concept car. The idea sounds great: ‘ The watch and its band fit neatly into the dashboard to become a temporary on-board timepiece. Easily removable, the instrument immediately turns back into a ...


Skoota electric scooter by Stuart Emmerson

Last year we published several posts about unicycles. At that time, we wished we could all use one to go to work until we realized the cold and snowy weather would not let us do so. In August, we started the ‘Unicycle Series of Posts’ with the eniCycle: eniCycle: electric unicycle for lazy circus clowns; in September, we followed with the YikeBike: YikeBike: high wheel bicycle of the 21st century, and in October, we introduced you to the Honda ...


iVictrola, iPhone Phonograph by Matt Richmond

We were browsing the Internet (not that our daily job exclusively constists in browsing the Internet but we actually spend a lot of time browsing the Internet…), and the iVictrola – iPhone Phonograph caught our attention for many reasons. The first one is because the design looks a lot like one of the Sama sculpture produced last year by Max Dana. The second reason is because the ‘concept’ is close to one Max is currently working ...


Holiday Dunnys Ruin Christmas at Kidrobot!

Last September we posted an article: Dunny Series 2009: released! and in October it was about An Interview with Frank Kozik at Juxtapoz. This time we wanted to show you a very crual nice video introducing Chuckboy‘s 3-inch Naughty Reindeer Dunny, doe-eyed deviant rewards nice kids with his removable bull whip and vinyl antlers, and naughty ones with two badass chases.  More about the Naughty Reindeer Dunny by Chuckboy at Kidrobot!


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, best game ever!

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is out and it’s the best game ever! The single-player experience, the multiplayer modes and features, online competition, full co-op Spec Ops mode. Not to mention the impressive graphical engine… Everything’s there and kicking, and Inifinty Ward‘s game is definitely the best first-person shooters.   Sorry to takeover the (not so) serious articles usually posted on the Sama Gazette but I have ...


An Interview with Frank Kozik at Juxtapoz

  Juxtapoz published a very interesting interview of Frank Kozik. It was during The Art of Rebellion, an art show in NYC featuring 10 iconic rock poster artists, and Juxtapoz got a chance to speak with renowned artist, Frank Kozik. They talked about the artistic process, the state of the music industry, and his Kid Robot toys.   Kozik’s quick bio (from Wikipedia):   Frank Kozik was born in Madrid, Spain. At the age of 14 he moved to the United ...


DailyMotion gets €7.5 million from French State

Dailymotion is the French equivalent to Youtube, and it was launched 4 years ago. The site has 60 million users, 1 billion videos viewed a month, and it is offering both amateur and professional content, with contextual advertising. Like on Youtube, you can watch serious video as well as more weird video. The site is independant, but will it stay this way? Many questions are raising since the organism of the French State: FSI (Fonds Strategique ...
