Bonjour la terre!
Je suis Jay Smith, founder of BKRW.COM, #1 online magazine around the world wide web.
I’m a blogging, cocky mouth firstly because I’m french (that’s just the way we are) and secondly because I’ve got nice lips.
Welcome to a day with me, myself and I…
Not all my days are that busy, but honestly the pace is pretty hectic down here.
A day cannot start without my bike.
Im living in the suburbs, so Im riding every morning for my lil suburb village (94250) to Paris, 68 rue des Archives where you can find my office and my shop BLACKRAINBOW.
I’m an online geek. Addicted to the internet.
There is not a single day where I don’t check my emails, my tweets (@jaybkrw) or my facebook.
I love to talk about life. I love to share what I like more than what I dont.
If it interests my mother, why not the rest of the world?
I do love my office nad we are lucky enough to have a pretty freestyle art contemporary design…
After one hour in front of my screen I need to see the light and fresh air. So sometimes I just go out to shoot some hoops at a great quiet playground next to my office. It’s calm. It’ so Parisian and its MY Parisian playground. LOL.
Then hitting the route again for a couple of meetings. Today I’ve been passing by the NIKE STUDIO/STADIUM since they’re one of our clients. Within their studio they just prepared a nice photo installation with our last event of this summer we organized together with PIGALLE. It’s called the PXA Basketball tournament inclidung teams from Berlin, Amsterdam and of course Paris. It’s all about peace, love, unity and having fun. We also organize those tournaments in Amsterdam and Berlin.
When Im over at Nike I can’t stand not to check their lastest products… Okay, I admit… I’m a “hypebeast”! I need to check everykind of sneakers and clothes. lol
Whats up DOC?
There is no better food than French one.
Asian is pretty amazing, too. But I just can’t live without French food.
It’s also time to pass by my friends from SHOES-UP (a printed magazine about footwear based 2 minutes away from my office). I went over there with one of my best friends called MAX, who also plays on the BKRW bball team. Max is a freelance journalist working for a lot of the most interesting men’s magazines.
Also today we have a LOOKBOOK fashion shoot for another client of ours. I’ve passed by to check if everything is fine. Obviously, we have a whole team working on that project and when you have two amazing photographers such as RENE&RADKA, a great art director named Julien GOSSET, an amazing stylist called ZAB and nice models… what can go wrong?
Then it’s time to go back home again. This day was so sunny that I could not resist to play Basketball another time. It’s kind of funny to compare a Parisian playground to a suburb one. I do feel great in both of them.
This is real life. Sport, food, friends, good music… it might sound cheezy but this is life.
I do love internet, I do love thedigital life and digital culture. But this is not LIFE.
Disconnecting is the key.
Stop reading my blog post and go outside.
But maybe one day check out the freshest news on my website BKRW.COM!
