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.

Dear friends

Ron Orp’s Mail is available as an app now. I searched my mind and came up with a few practical functions which are also interesting if you’re on the road. For example you can take pictures with your iphone and upload them directly into the urban city trip section – so that my wish for more photos might become true! The app is available in German, French, English and Portuguese accordingly to the city you choose. You can download it here.
Give my love to the city, Ron

Electric futureland

As we all know the predicted future of transportation is a little behind schedule. The personal jetpacks and teleportation devices are still in development alongside the hover-car but there are companies whose ideas are bringing the real future closer everyday. The Hub is hosting two of these companies – Tesla Motors and Flyerelektrovelo – who will present their company stories as well as taking questions and giving advice to any upcoming social entrepreneurs. If you do invent something, call it the Ronorpatron – it’ll make me happy.
Thursday 8 pm, The Hub

I heart art

Owning original art is normally reserved for the rich or the daringly criminal but Station21 is giving you the chance to own an original piece without being either. 26 artists from around Switzerland are being gathered for an art show under the name Himmelwärts 10 (Skywards 10) where you have the opportunity to talk directly with the artists and, if the mood grabs you, to also buy the art. Prices range from 1 to 199 francs.
Friday 6 pm & Saturday 12 pm, Station21

Latin label

Cómeme is a new electro-dance record label from South America founded by Matias Aguayo and Gary Pimiento. They will be focused mainly on South American artists but are happy to colaborate with any Europeans biten by the Cómeme bug. See what the new label has to offer as they perform a live set with percussionists and a backing vocalist from London at Zukunft.
And if you need a little easy food, music and shopping before the South Americans rock your world then the Nacht Markt at Kasernanareal is back again.
Friday 7 pm, Kasernanareal
Friday 12 am, Zukunft

Gyrate and skate

With December comes the ice but also the skating. The second Zurich Ice Disco is happening at the Dolder Ice Rink this weekend. No need to worry about falling over as the disco, soul and electro beats will keep you upright and flowing along all night. The night has some great djs as well as a live show by Les Retardieux. The after-party is happening at Plaza Club with Kraak & Smaak leading the dj charge.  Just remember, the sliding backwards will be a lot harder and less cooler at the Plaza then the Dolder.
Saturday 5 pm, Dolder Ice Rink
Saturday 11 pm , Plaza Club

Christmas plaza

If you want to get away from the Bahnhofstrasse Christmas crush then get down to the Plaza Club, which is transforming itself into an urban Christmas village for the week leading up to Christmas. Not only confined to the club but also the streets surrounding it, you will find stalls from some of the local boutiques and they have also planned a party program for each day. As you’ve been good readers this year I have some special surprise gifts to give away from Meine Garderobe and Cloud8, two of the labels at the market.
e-mail me.
Sunday-Friday 11.30 am, Plaza Club

Free jazz

This Monday, jazz singer Sophia Bastian sings at Kaufleuten. As a thank you to everyone who visited the club, lounge and/or restaurant this year, the concert is for free. Make sure you get there on time.
Monday 8 pm, Kaufleuten

Good to know

Each year it’s the same game. December comes around and everyone acts surprised that only a few weeks are left until the holidays. The workload increases and the inner city is ruled by shoppers. And there are so many of them. Now, Christmas is only one week away and of course you haven’t had time to do your present shopping. But don’t get scared. You don’t have to throw yourself into the  crowds at Bahnhofstrasse. In my latest digital magazine I put together gift ideas so you can pick the missing presents at home. Unfortunately, amongst the Christmas frenzy I wasn’t able to translate it into English. Sorry about that! But what is it what they say? A picture speaks a thousand words.

Eating: Over the moon

Ron’s assistant: You look happy…
Ron: I just had a great lunch!
Ron’s assistant: So you’re drunk?
Ron: No, great food! At Hin & Weg. It’s a catering and take- away place between Schmiede Wiedikon and Goldbrunnenplatz that cooks so tasty that I’d like to book them as my personal catering service!
Hin & Weg, Birmensdorferstrasse 171, Zurich

Across Switzerland

And yet I’m telling you about another publication which is in German only: Transhelvetica. Why? Because it’s new and because it’s produced in Zurich. And also because you might have German speaking friends or colleagues for which you’re searching for the perfect gift. (Because it's also really nice!)  An annual subscription (6 issues) is only 45 francs.

Music map of Manhattan

Flavorwire puts it so well that I’ll quote:  “If you’re sick of hearing Frank Sinatra tell you that he wants to be a part of it, or Alicia Keys gushing about how these streets will make you feel brand new, then rejoice – here’s an alternative musical history of the Big Apple.”  So have a look and wander through the streets that wrote music history.
