Urban Signs Photo Trip goes Photo10

I love the various urban signs that you upload each week. Cheers! You can also upload photos of Zurich which will then appear in one of the newsletters. Lately there weren’t any. So if i get a wish for the Christmas, then it’s your images of Zurich, uploaded on the website. Cheers again!  But let’s go back to the urban signs photos for now.  Photo10 is one of the most important work exhibitions of Switzerland’s photography. About 120 photographers display their pictures there. Ron as well! I’m allowed to fill two walls, which i pass on to you. Each photo of the topic urban signs, which is uploaded to the forum and of which a print out (max A3) is sent to Blofeld will find a space at Photo 10. The best image will be awarded with a Nikon COOLPIX P7000 with wide angle converter. Upload & send photo to: Blofeld Entertainment GmbH, Re: Ron Orp, Langstrasse 94, 8004 Zürich

Good. No, bad

Argument about art is as common as agreement, which is partly what makes it art I suppose. At Art + Argument, as you might expect, two expert teams are asked to oppose or defend an idea about art and painting for five minutes, followed by challenges from the other team and then audience members. I like the idea that team members don’t have to agree with the position they are arguing which should add an element of irreverence to the whole affair.
Thursday 7:30 pm, Claudia Groeflin Gallery, Dienerstrasse 12

Child prodigy

Baby Genius may come from Luzern but Britpop was where this boy learnt to rock n’ roll. The English exports of attitude and improvisation seem to have found a happy home here. Baby Genius is touring his new album and will be at a favourite of mine, Long Street Bar, this week.
Thursday 8 pm, Long Street Bar

Pinball wizard

‘Ever since I was a young boy/I've played the silver ball/From Soho down to Brighton/I must have played them all’ - if you’ve always wanted to be cool like Tommy (but without the physical hindrances) then you now have your chance to shine. Le Calvados have organised a pinball competition and for the 5 franc entrance fee you get your beer included as well as a chance to win, among other things, a season ticket to Letzigrund. Of course all this pales into insignificance compared to being crowned Pinball Wizard of Zurich.
Friday 6 pm, Calvados, Idaplatz

Party people

Elektrostubete is the party label from Bern and on Friday they bring the party to Rote Fabrik. ‘Stubete’ is a traditional Bernese word for a small celebration with folk music and dance, however this is like comparing candles with neon. A live show by Polder from Amsterdam will be followed up by some of the best djs from the two Cantons including Dejan, Lukas Kleesattel, Dave Canina and Jon Donson.  Traditional it ain’t.
Friday 11 pm, Rote Fabrik

Rambling rose

Jesse Rose is a London house dj, based out of Berlin. As a producer, remixer and label owner he has been involved with some great names (Hot Chip, Radio Slave), and as a dj plays across Europe as well as residencies at Kiss FM and Back to Yours in London. This Saturday he’ll be headlining at Hive along with P Toile.
Saturday 11 pm, Hive Club

Shake a leg

I usually associate Stratford-Upon-Avon with Shakespeare, the picturesque home town of the famous writer, with ancient theatres that still stage his plays. I’m not intending to convince you to visit the town and see play there by the Shakespeare Company (though it’s definitely worth a trip). But Stratford-Upon-Avon rocks. Indie rock by Eight Legs. This Tuesday at Hafenkneipe.
Tuesday 8.30 pm, Hafenkneipe

Eating: Kantine Hermetschloo

Most meals that I don’t eat at home are actually over lunchtime. So I thought I’d recommend a nice, public canteen for a change: Kantine Hermetschloo. Being located at Zurich Altstetten, it’s not very central, but many of us don’t work in the inner city. From the venue on the sixth floor you get a fantastic, urban view over the city, just above the rail tracks. The friendly team cooks fresh, seasonal, international meals daily. If you know of other public canteens that are worth a try, let me know!
Kantine Hermetschloo, Hermetschloostrasse 70

Good to Know

It’s cold outside – time to take a bath. Nothing warms cold bones as good as a hot bath or a visit to the sauna or a spa. Saunas you find all around town, at your local fitness centre, at the lake, at Helvetiaplatz (Stauffacherstrasse 60) or the Turkish version Hamam in the Niederdorf (where you can also book online now). This week, there is also the opening of the first thermal spa in Zurich. Hooray! Zurich always had hot springs, but Zwinglian Zurich was against thermal spas. Until now. This Saturday the first ever will opens its doors, in an old brewery house. I like the idea! It opens this Saturday and offers 2 for 1 entries until 17 December.

The international language of rhythm

Recently I went clubbing in Tokyo with Mr Samurai.fm until the early mornings. His platform samurai.fm is like a treasure chest, filled with dj-mixes of music across all countries and genres. For your personal treasure hunt, you fill in genre and style and then: float. You’ll find new tunes but also timeless classics. Wonderfully international and eclectic. That’s what I’m listening to this morning.

Ron’s Interview

Redley grew up in New York and also studies fashion design there. Afterwards she chose Switzerland, well Geneva, as her home. After more studying, the innovative designer started her own fashion label: Redley Exantus. To cut a long story short – check out my interview with her here.

Add to favourit  Concert: Jingle jungle
 
Jungle originally came to prominence last year in a shroud of mystery. The UK duo, known only as J and T, would perform live at London’s underground venues deep in shadow and their increasingly viral video’s featured troops of breakdancers or synchronised roller-skaters rather than the band themselves. This was never going to last of course, and although Jungle’s cover is now somewhat blown, it’s the music that really matters. If you want party tunes with a funky soul, music that is both strikingly original yet still familiar, they’ll be playing at Komplex Klub tonight.
Thursday 8 pm, Komplex Klub

Add to favourit  Exhibition: Design for life
 
In a world of mass production and consumption it’s always refreshing to find something that’s a little more unique and individual, which was one of the driving forces behind Blickfang’s inception. This weekend at Kongresshaus, Blickfang will once again bring designers and unique products from all over the world including fashion, jewellery, accessories and interior design together under one roof. They’ll also have fashion shows throughout the weekend as well as a special ‘locals’ section focusing on designers from Zurich.
Friday to Sunday from 11 am, Kongresshaus

It’s good to know that the Zurich party label Les Enfants Terribles have finally matured into their own name by celebrating their 3rd anniversary this weekend at Frieda’s Büxe. As is often the case they’ve managed to lure in a few international djs including Jun Akimoto, who spends his time playing deep, dubby techno at Fuse clubs in London and Kyoto, while Dogukan Ires is usually based at the crossroads of East and West, Istanbul. Along with these two, there’ll also be a great selection of local djs to make this a party worth remembering. It’s good to know that age hasn’t made these enfants any less terrible.
Friday 11 pm, Frieda’s Büxe
 
Add to favourit  Festival: Micro electro
 
If you’ve been to Bar Rossi before you’ll know it’s not the largest bar in the world, which makes the fact that they’re putting on an electronic music festival this Saturday all the more amazing, and in a nod to self-awareness they’re calling it the Liveset Micro-Festival. The doors open at 9 pm, with the artists playing live electronica into the early hours of Sunday morning. Dj Christian von Andern will be filling in the gaps and the whole event is completely free to get into.
Saturday 9 pm, Bar Rossi
 
Add to favourit  Reading: All things, all at once
 
One of the main themes of the 20th Century seemed to be about reaching for the future; trying to move faster, communicate faster, gather information faster. Well, now the future has arrived in a stream of non-stop news, information and gossip and many people feel a little disorientated. The past and future don’t seem as important as what’s happening right now. Douglass Rushkoff’s book Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now explores this subject in an entertaining and thought-provoking way and will be discussed at Corner College’s Theory Tuesday evening. Some excerpts of the book can be downloaded, so that you can better participate in the discussion. All in English.
Tuesday 8 pm, Corner College, Kochstrasse 1, 8004

Add to favourit  Eating: The colour of the sky
 

Maybe you already found the pretty new shop Azzurro at Weinbergstrasse. If not, there is no excuse now not to visit. Their theme is «pure pleasure» and as soon as you enter the shop you’ll understand why. The home-made soups, salads and sandwiches made my stomach rumble as soon as I entered the venue. This, as well as special lemonades and tapas is all for take-away between 11 am and 2 pm from Monday to Friday. On the right hand side you find special wines and liqueurs, antipasti, olive oil, honey and much more savoury and sweet treats. And if you’re hosting a party, they also offer a catering service. Pleasure all around.
Azzurro, Weinbergstrasse 95, 8006. Opening hours: Monday to Friday 9 am - 6.30 pm, Saturday 10 am - 3 pm

 
Add to favourit   Good to know: What’s going on in Swiss politics
 

At the end of the month, another national election is coming up. This time there are three topics I believe might be of interest to you. 1. Ecopop: What sounds like a new music style is an initiative that wants to limit net immigration to 0.2% of the population growth in Switzerland. Which is similar to a freeze. This is too drastic for almost all parties (even SVP), so let’s hope for a strong no. 2. New tram line in Zurich: Tram 8 could extend its line over Hardbrücke connecting Kreis 4 and 5 if the public says yes to the budget. 3. Drunk tank: Zurich has a drunk tank, where the police are allowed to put you if you’re drunk (even when not driving). You’ll have to pick up the costs of 1,700 francs for the one night. This price tag is the basis for the ongoing discussion and the public’s vote will decide now whether to continue with the drunk tank or not. More: As usual swissinfo.ch offers background information in English and also explains the rest of the topics the Swiss will vote on on Sunday.

Add to favourit  Shopping tip: Pretty Woman
 

Let’s stick to Kreis 6 this week. Right next to the Leonhard-Steps you find the organic beauty depot Pretty & Pure. A lovingly decorated venue with a large selection of natural cosmetic products that have never been near an animal for testing or contain animal products. A bit like a vegan beauty parlour. Their spa offers treatments and make-up and their lines are also for men and available in their online shop as well.
Pretty & Pure, Weinbergstrasse 25, 8006. Opening hours: Tuesday to Friday 11 am - 6.30 pm, Saturday 11 am - 4 pm

 
Add to favourit  Web tip: Take a break
 

Everyone needs a break from time to time. If smoking is not an option and if you shot all the bubbles in your Bubbleshooter-Game, try Oh h1. The name is weirder than the game, which is addictive and great to play while listening to music or a boring conversation. Just try it yourself. It works similar to Takuzu or Binairo and the introduction explains all questions you might have.
