    It's noon on Sunday when we stop in Gorna Banya where the Blek Pine duo is showing us (and a hundred more people) their first two kinds of craft beer. Between "Cheers" and "One more, please" we find the time to discuss homemade snacks, Christmas ale with pine needles and how two people can work like two hudred.
  • Full Throttle

    19 November 2015

    text Violeta Ivanova

    Folding yourself in half to squeeze into a small car, so that you can crash into some dirty tires while holding a tiny steering wheel? We might be crazy but it's so much fun.
  • The things of life: Anna Simeonoff

    12 November 2015

    Thought, joke and aesthetics. When was the last time you saw a poster with those three on the streets of Sofia? They can all be like this, says Anna. Or at least she's sure that we have the artists to do them, when she starts the project Plakat Kombinat, together with Georgi Aleksandrov. It's not just a website where you can order a poster by a Bulgarian artist - it's also the first step of a few exhibitions. The last one, I love this movie, was in Rome, New York and Vienna, and now it's coming to Sofia. Before the opening, we sit with Anna to talk about her things of life.
  • For the letters with love: Chas LoveLetters

    5 November 2015

    Chas is a part of the graffiti crew LoveLetters and he loves letters since 1989. They seem to love them back and the result is on urban canvases around the world. Now he's coming to Bulgaria for Sprite Graffiti Academy and he'll teach our young graffiti artists the ABC of the art. Before that, we made a little online meeting with him and talked about it all in detail...
  • The things of life: Jose Gonzalez

    29 October 2015

    With only a few minutes of guitar and voice, he can melt anyone and anything. Now the situation is even more serious, because he's tuning in for longer and closer - the ticket is warm in our pocket ever since we found out about his concert in Studio Orfey, Noember 9. Before that, we sit with him and listen about the things from his life... Let's start from the beginning?
  • From the heads to the walls

    15 October 2015

    They say they create surfaces. But they're not carpenters, sculpturers or architects - Elena Nikolova, Iskren Mitev and Yassen Russev make whiteboard paint. They call it Escreo.
  • Merve Bedir: to the city with love

    10 September 2015

    Merve Bedir is an architect from Ankara, and this year she's the curator of One Architecture Week, which will happen between the 18 and 27 of September in Plovdiv with the theme of Un-common river. We met Marve to ask how a garden can destroy borders, what should we tell ourselves every day to change the city, and what is one thing in Sofia that she's never seen before.
  • The things of life: Alissa Atanassova

    10 September 2015

    We met her for an hour between two repetinions, which was just enough to find out a few things. Alissa is an actress (third generation in her family), teaches theather to teenagers and has many other roles - we're expecting to see three of them in premiere this season. Today we sit with her and listen to her stories for the important things in life.

    Some say yoga is therapy that erase your problems. Others don't get near to it because of all tales about gurus and gods. Third group of people have found her strength, meeting the teacher they need - like Vera Gotzeva who meets us with Maria Kovacheva from Urban Yoga.
  • Blood becomes water

    27 August 2015

    The art-collective Blood becomes water just ate the cake for its five birthday and made a new zine. There you are, the two reasons why we enter its studio - where you get in by the screen - to see what's it like to live like a rock star, which is the forbidden question and what does all of this even mean.
  • Ready, go!

    20 August 2015

    Running is the most popular lonely sport, right? However, if you love to run in the company - or with the whole family - here's where to tie shoes these days.
  • Dancing with the wind

    20 August 2015

    She's a photographer, bohemian and lover of extreme sports. 15 years ago, Miglena Tsoneva had a gallery in Sofia, and today she lives on a kite surf. How did that story begin and when the dance with the wind becomes your forever, Megi explains here.
  • The things of life: Luba Hristova

    6 August 2015

    We met Luba, the head behind SOHO - coworking space in Sofia - and Villa Maxim, a seaside oasis in Sinemoretz where you can rest or work. Over a shaky Skype connection because of the strong sea wind, we talked about the important things in life...
  • The Things of Life: Elena Telbis

    Once she saw Marius Kurkinski and she said to herself that she wanted to thrill someone in this way.
  • Quiet night, holy night

    2 July 2015

    Going around the bars is not the only circular motion you can do in Sofia at night. Here are three ideas, for which you need a bit of training, desire to go in the dark and zero leva of expenses.
  • The things of life: Gloria Petkova - Guilty

    2 July 2015

    A model, an actress, a DJ, and at night - just someone who likes dancing to dark wave and industrial, but can't find her spot for it (open a club for her, people!). This summer she'll start a movie, and a few months later we'll see her in Family relics by Ivan Cherkelov. This is what will happen in the near future, today we sit with a grande cappucino with her to talk about the things from life - the very good and some of the bad ones.
  • The things of life: Stefan Ikoga

    25 June 2015

    text and photos Sevda Semer

    With two words, what he does is: urban chronicle. In poetry and prose. He just won the Sofia Poetics festival with his text Easy to hate, which provoked Sylvia Choleva to say "come to your senses, people!" in his defence. Today he's easy to love, he lets us in his own chornicle fast and his only request is to photograph him without the Cheshire cat's smile with which he entered the Poetics history. Ok, done.
  • The things of Life: Bora Dokle

    11 June 2015

    She has those piercing eyes that will win you over even before she starts singing. She comes in Bulgaria years ago to play the violin, but today we meet her on top of the bar she opens with Olya Mihailova and days before a live performance of Bora Dokle Project. The band of five will soon record their first album, and the bar will open officially - now you can be here only for plays, unplugged concerts and Monopoly in Sundays. In this whirpool of events, we find Bora very calm and ready to tell us all about the things in her life - but only after she appologizes five minutes for her being late by three. It's totally okay, now let's see what else is important, except for being on time.
  • T-shaped

    4 June 2015

    Evgeni Vatsov enters a bar... Well, okay, not a bar, but a shop where he's looking for a T-shirt and doesn't find one. Moral of the story is, if you can't find something, you need to do it yourself. That's how the story of his label FINGAH starts.
  • Commanda Camp Shop

    28 May 2015

    Why an artist who has a design studio is starting a shop for original toys? This is the first question with which we enter his shop Commanda Camp to shake the hand of Stefan Gadzhovski.
