THE GUESTLIST NETWORK | MAY 2011 JR’S TED PRIZE WISH GOOD NEWS Ninja to the Rescue!
Imagine being alone in a foreign country, followed by three men, pushed to the floor, beaten up and robbed. Now imagine opening your eyes whilst having the cr*p kicked out of you and spotting five FULLY DRESSED NINJAS coming to your rescue! This week a German student visiting Australia found himself in this extraordinary scenario. So let us learn from the muggers mistake - next time you plan on nicking someone’s iPhone, make sure your victim isn’t outside a Ninja Warrior School... and we thought this sh*t only happened in movies!
Africa’s 313 Million Middle Class
The African Development Bank released a statement this month claiming that some 313 million Africans are defined as middle class. The statement follows a study of the general income of people across the nation. Results show that Africa’s middle class are educated, have fewer children, work in salaried jobs or are self employed. This affluent image of Africa comes as a great contrast to the Western Worlds’ general perception of the continent, which is often associated with underdevelopment, poverty and conflict. Wonderful isn’t it!
Ever catch something from a bad throw and feel like a bit of hero? Imagine how Helen Beard, an English tourist felt whilst visiting Orlando Florida this month. Beard was relaxing pool side with her children when she saw a two year old girl dangling from a four storey balcony. As the child started to plummet Helen (who at this point must have felt a bit like John McClane) ran towards the mischievous toddler and caught her midfall! YIPPIE KI YAY MOTHER F*CKER!
In 2005 The TED prize was founded. TED awards an individual to be granted their wish to change our world by spreading a positive, hopeful message. This year the winner is a semi-anonymous urban artist...
JR is a French street artist. Once he dreamed of revealing to the world, ‘it’s true face’. With the use of his camera and large scale im- ages, his dream came true. JR is the founder of Inside Out, a monu- mental art project with the intent of expressing an individuals identity through an artistic medium. The concept behind Inside Out is to use only black and white portraits
to discover, reveal and share the untold stories and images of peo- ple around the world. JR is inviting everyone to take self portraits and upload them to his website, inside- outproject.net
, which will then be posted for everyone to see. JR was granted a wish: ‘I wish for you to stand up for what you care about by participating in a global art proj- ect and together we will turn the
world Inside Out.’ So get involved and be part of something amazing! TGN insists that you MUST watch JR’s video, documenting his jour- ney to Rio de Janeiro, South Africa and all over the world spreading a positive, hopeful message.

YOUR HOROSCOPE by Fin Carew Feb 20 - Mar 20
Pisces You’ll be watched by a Libra on Chat Roulette. Nice. You’ll realise you’re not really
the clubbing kind when the DJ shouts ‘Put your hands up!’ and you think you’re being robbed.
Aries Mar 21 - Apr 20 You will finally be swayed by
those penis enlargement emails. Considering the deals they’re offering, why not?
performing live at the Hammersmith Apollo, Katy B takes centre stage at KOKO, you can catch Ed Sheeran at Borderline while the end of the month will see the Swedish House Mafia gracing us with two sets at the Alexandra Palace, seeing to it that we move into the summer months in the appropriate mood! Could May get any better?

people - they’re the worst. That’s what I think anyway.
Cancer Jun 23 - Jul 23 Don’t take it to heart when no
one wants to get their photo taken with you this month. You’re prob- ably just unattractive.
Leo Jul 24 - Aug 23 In the next two weeks it

broken leg tries to guilt you into offering your seat on the tube, punch him in the face.
