All my friends back home in New York were imploring me to stay away in the warm climes of Brazil for as long as possible. They said, New York was a slit wrist inducing tundra and everyone was miserable. I was dreading the return but a few days in a more temperate Barcelona would be a welcomed buffer before having to head home. But it was not to be picnic in Barcelona, I was there to moderate a lecture at Bread & Butter for Stylesight on the cultural Zeitgeist and though I feel comfortable speaking in front of large audiences, there’s always a level of unavoidable anxiety. So I spend the first couple days chatting with the panelists and my hosts to gather their thoughts on the ultimate aim of such a panel. Turned out I had nothing to worry about, the discussion went swimmingly and the panelists comprising Isham Sardouk of Stylesight, Travers Rains of Heatherette, J Errico of Nylon Magazine, Public School’s Mike B and Jenifer Mallory of Columbia Records made for a spirited discussion on all the features of our lives that connects and impacts how we communicate, how we consume, and where our concerns lie.
We also manage to get a bit of party on. Take a look at some of the photos from the Stylesight party in Barcelona.
