two more interviews!

i was interviewed by adnan arif of wristfashion via email and in-person by liz kinnmark of designglut. it's interesting to see how different the tone is from catching me on different days and also the difference from an interview via email and one transcribed from an audio recording [the type of questions also changes things].

adnan is perhaps one of the most knowledgable people in the world when it comes to the world of watches – he travels to the fairs in hong kong and switzerland every year and represents numerous brands for the middle east out of his offices in dubai [one brand of which is nooka!]. is "a resource which tells the stories of how many creative businesses got their start. You don't need magic. You may, however, need some inspiration and a little advice". it is 100% interview format.

nooka in hungary: hodosi enikö

our contact in budapest sent us a scan of enikö hodosi wearing a white zub zot in the popkultúra magazine, wan 2. she is a member of a hungarian band known as neo. they are listed on myspace as new wave / electronica / pop which is misleading as i think it's more pop / rock on some tracks and eurobeat for others. her solo stuff is definitely eurobeat if you search for her videos on youtube. eurobeat gets pushed further and further east every year, most certainly a victim of global warming! there haven't been eurobeat sightings in north america since the last dead or alive and sique sique sputniks died in the cincinatti zoo in 1995.

she's really cute and the white zub zot looks great on her. neo's myspace page is here. watch shown can be purchased at fine shops in budapest, worldwide, and here. the nooka hungary site is here.

thank you viktor and enikö!
