Keren’s note: You may already know that I have a soft spot for South Africans. My mom is South African!
Insight, advice, news and chit chat
I turn the key into the lock until it’s bolted, slip it into my pocket, and walk away from the door towards the street. The sky is the same hue as the asphalt of the deserted street, like I am walking on a frozen lake reflecting the stormy clouds. As I approach the Tube station, there are more and more people occupying the wet pavement. Some touches of colour show up from the wildest clothes of the magnifying crowd, gradually making the ubiquitous grey of the urban landscape recede into the background. Soon, I reach the station. I notice a great ad across the street offering a journey to Paris, which is described as the “European capital of romance and culture”. I smile – pretty proud – and nod to myself.
On the 9th of August, the Top Left Design team (and guests, but sadly minus Amy) were privileged enough to attend the red carpet Premiere of the new Blockbuster film “The Expendables“, starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the voice of Justin Bieber. Ok well maybe not that last one, but pretty much every big action movie star of the last 20 years!
How you might ask? Well Keren’s (@topleftdesign’s) father just happens to be Avi Lerner, Producer of the movie. He has also produced such Hollywood hits as Rambo IV (Stallone), Righteous Kill (Pacino / De Niro), and The Black Dahlia (Hartnett / Johansson).
