Five for Friday | 五日(星期五)

Things that made my day this week:

WeChat brought payments and wallet function to the international version of WeChat with its last version update, but I only noticed it this week. Does this mean that WeChat is now putting all the pieces in place before they get serious about an international market push?
WeChat wallet now for louwai
TfL brought back its experiment for having people stand on both sides of the escalators. For those of us who live in London this is quite a change to our usual routine.
Stand on both sides - people living outside London won't realise what a paradigm shift this is
A comparable shift would be say, New Yorkers suddenly becoming unfailingly polite and accommodating.

Japanese producer TOYOMU reimagined Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo based on reviews and a list of the samples used. Japan hasn’t embraced streaming music unlike western lemmings music buyers. I think what he came up with is far better, see for yourself.

Forthcoming Russian superhero film Guardians looks even more intense than the Night Watch and Day Watch films. Apparently the bear packs a chain cannon a la Jesse Venture in Predator.

Luxxury releases Greg Wilson remixes of the their track on yellow vinyl, have a preview of it here
