GENERAL REPORT

This morning on the way to work I happily counted a variety of dog shits on the pavement and a screwed up used sanitary towel and watched one woman tip a steaming kettle of boiling water on her doorstep and wipe a jay cloth over the wet patch with her foot – poo or vomit i dont know.

Now I am in Chisou a Japanese restaurant drinking Midori and Soda – really a summer time drink – about to eat what looks like is going to be banging!!! All the plates and bowls are so elegant and delicate. In complete contrast to my morning walk.

HAPPY FACE

I’m in Soho and happy. I’m going to buy some chromakey paper. I am going to eat something tasty. I bought someone a present and I can’t wait to give it to them. I am smiling. I have a smiley voice. I had an amaretto macaroon instead of mint and loved it. It’s a great day and this is normal. I am happy.

SPIRITUAL

Emma’s Personal Hexagram:
21: Cutting Through

Saturday, July 19th, 2008
Hexagram 21

General Meaning: The situation calls for confronting a tenacious knot and cutting through it. Somehow, the way to harmony and unity is blocked or frustrated – perhaps by a tangle of deceit or corruption. Like Alexander the Great cutting the Gordian knot, take decisive action and you will meet with good fortune. Don’t be afraid to shake things up a bit. The ability to take corrective measures, when they are needed, is an essential trait of true leadership.

But those who bring discipline to bear must, above all, be honest – with others, and with themselves. Honesty is the hallmark of the strong and self-confident. The successful person masters the art of honesty much as a swordsman masters fencing. When lies, delusions and game-playing are getting in the way of teamwork, a swift sword of honest action, perhaps even punishment, must be wielded to protect one’s integrity and values. Decisiveness with integrity at a time like this brings good fortune.

Though your actions be vigorous, they must not be hasty, severe, or arbitrary. Be sure to carefully consider all the circumstances. In the case of a serious disruption of relations or events, you must forgive, but not forget – at least until a person has made reparation for his mistakes. If corrective action is necessary, make certain that it fits the crime. When rules have become slack and useless, only through the institution of clear and swift penalties can their effectiveness be restored.

In situations where serious issues of justice are at stake, keep careful records, and do not hesitate to go public with the truth.

GOON & KOYOTE IN FRENCH VICE

GOON & KOYOTE – LE MAXI DE LA MATURITÉ Pt.1

Les légendaires Goon & Koyote viennent de sortir leur maxi “Wellness Is Wild” et il faut que vous l’achetiez immédiatement bande d’enfoirés immatures. Sachez qu’en plus de faire de la super bonne dance-music, les deux faux-jumeaux sont aussi les mecs les plus cool de la terre. On leur a demandé pourquoi ils avaient légèrement changé de style musical, des fois que ça ait à voir avec leur consommation de nourriture bio et de cigares.

C’est la première partie de l’interview, la seconde arrivera dans la fin de semaine. KEEP DANCIN.

Salut les mecs, comment ça va ?

Goon: Ça va super. En fait c’est un peu relou pour moi, je suis en train de déménager en ce moment. C’est à dire que je me déplace entre les cartons, les tuyaux et le plâtre et que cet enfoiré de Koyote ne vient même pas m’aider. D’ailleurs je compte le solliciter très prochainement.

Koyote: Mouais, c’est quand même loin d’être sûr que je me déplace.

Votre maxi est sorti lundi dernier. J’ai ouïe dire que ça marchait très bien.

Koyote: Oui, on en a vendu 3. Non c’est pas vrai, en fait on a même été numéro 1 electro sur iTunes Store la semaine dernière. C’est cool, même si je pense qu’on a du retomber dans les profondeurs du classement depuis.

Goon: Le truc c’est que le maxi a buzzé grâce à la grosse promo qu’on a faite un peu avant la sortie, mais là ça s’est un peu calmé c’est vrai.

Koyote: C’est un maxi composé de trois titres à nous, et de deux remixes. Le titre principal c’est un vrai gros morceau deep-house à l’ancienne. Pour les remixes, c’est nos potes Dre Skull de New York et Dikulous de Londres, parce qu’ils ne nous ont pas demandé d’argent. Dikulous, c’est un des pseudos de Dj Guy en fait, qui est pour nous le meilleur dj Booty européen.

Quand on vous voit, on dirait vraiment un vrai couple avec ses petites habitudes et ses petites gueulantes. Comment votre histoire d’A a t-elle commencé ?

Koyote: On s’est rencontré en 2002 sur un forum ghettotech, ça a été le coup de foudre. C’était l’époque de l’internet 0.9, personne ne parlait de booty en France, c’était le gouffre.

Goon: Sur ce forum on était trois français et on s’est rencontrés en s’envoyant des mails pour finalement se rendre compte qu’on habitait à 10 minutes l’un de l’autre. On a fait des trucs tous les trois ensemble à une époque, mais depuis on a coupé les ponts avec Ice Kid.

Votre musique a beaucoup évolué et s’est adoucie ces derniers temps. Vous n’avez pas peur d’être devenus “matures” ?

Koyote: Matures, nous ? Ouais voilà, on est vachement matures ahah. C’est le mot le moins fait pour parler de notre musique je crois. On est immatures mec. Après je comprends que les gens qui nous ont connus il y a trois ans à l’époque de nos soirées Diamond Grills soient un peu désorientées aujourd’hui. À l’époque, on mixait vraiment que de la booty, donc on est vite devenu “les dj’s booty parisiens” et ça nous a soûlé. Donc on s’est mis à mélanger nos sets puis à mixer de plus en plus de trucs différents. Mais de là à être matures, je ne crois pas non.

Vous mixiez booty avant la grande explosion du truc sur internet. En fait, je ne sais même plus depuis combien de temps vous êtes là…

Goon: Je crois qu’en France, c’est le passage de Disco D au Nouveau-Casino qui a déclenché l’engouement pour la dance music du ghetto, en 2003. Mais nous, on mixait de la ghetto-tech déjà bien avant l’apparition des blogs héhé.

Koyote: En ce qui me concerne, je mixe de la booty depuis 97-98. J’ai vraiment découvert ça à l’époque sur Radio Sauvagine quand j’habitais à Bordeaux. À l’époque ils passaient en boucle un mix de Dj Funk, et moi qui écoutait plein de techno de Detroit, j’ai pris une énorme claque. Et j’ai compris que tous les artistes de cette scène ghetto-house connaissaient aussi les dj’s techno que j’adorais. Je me suis dit “bingo, je ne vais mixer que ça maintenant”.

Goon
: Moi c’était quand j’habitais à Rennes en 99 et un pote de l’époque collectionnait tous les maxis du label Dance Mania. J’ai directement trouvé que tous ces trucs tuaient.

C’est quoi le truc qui vous a fait dire : “OK on va être dj’s booty et pas autre chose” ?

Koyote: C’est les paroles de cul. C’est le cul qui nous anime tu sais.

Goon: C’est le côté immédiat des morceaux, les morceaux partent directement et sont plus dansables que n’importe quelle autre musique. On aimait aussi le fait que cette musique reprennent plein d’éléments du hiphop et du funk, puisqu’on en écoute beaucoup.

Koyote: C’est aussi le côté hyper rythmique de cette musique qui nous a poussé à ne faire que ça. Les tomes des 808 et 909, ça nous rend oufs. Un peu comme la house tribale tu vois ? Je suis un grand fan de house tribale, Antoine Clamaran tout ça… Il faut que tu le dises.

Et tout votre délire Miami bass, Latin freestyle, c’est venu après non ?

Goon: Ce sont toutes les mixtapes des mecs de Detroit qui nous ont introduit à ces sous-genres. Le fait de tout mélanger dans leurs mixs nous a servi pour nous documenter sur ces musiques un peu obscures.

Koyote: En fait il faut savoir que ce qu’on appelle “booty”, c’est un mélange de trois musiques distinctes : la ghetto-tech de Detroit, la ghetto-house de Chicago et la Miami Bass. À Detroit, les mecs mixent toutes ces musiques ensemble.

Goon: Ce que les médias ont appelé “ghetto-tech”, c’est une manière de mixer en fait. C’est ces mecs de Detroit qui mixent les morceaux rapidement et avec un tempo accéléré. Ils prennent un morceau de Freestyle des années 80 assez soft et vont le transformer en truc beaucoup plus violent.

Le fait d’avoir été catégorisé comme “les dj’s booty de Paris”, ça vous a bien soûlé on dirait…

Koyote: Oui c’est clair, c’est vraiment un truc qui nous emmerde. On se considère plus du tout comme les mecs qui ne passent que des trucs ghettos dans leurs soirées. C’est pour ça qu’on a complètement changé nos sets et que l’on passe beaucoup plus de house et techno classique. Et pas mal de rave du début des années 90 aussi. Maintenant, de tous les trucs ghetto que l’on jouait avant, on ne passe plus que de la Juke en fait. C’est de la ghetto-house actuelle, avec un tempo très rapide. C’est le truc le plus intéressant en booty à l’heure actuelle, des mecs comme Dj Nehpets, ou Dj Rahsaan défoncent.

De toutes façons, la vision des gens à propos du délire “booty” a changé.

Koyote: Ouais maintenant, le truc a tellement évolué que tout le monde sait ce que qu’est la ghetto-tech, même les meufs savent directement reconnaître un morceau booty. À la limite, c’est trop populaire à présent, ça a perdu tout son côté nouveau tu vois.

Goon: Et puis plein d’autres artistes, style Crookers, ont vachement assimilé cette musique. C’est plus la peine de faire ce que les autres font maintenant. On voulait faire quelque chose de différent, pour lequel on était pas réputés. On a digéré la musique ghetto.

Koyote: On est matures tu vois !

Goon: On entre dans une deuxième phase.

Ah, la French Touch 3.0 ?

Goon: 4.0 en fait pour être précis. Soyez prêts Paris, l’Europe, le Monde, en 2012 on sera là.

You can find the interview with pictures here on the French Vice site.

This Is A 10 Minute Dance Tutorial That You Will Not Regret Watching.’
I have been requested by over 300 people to make a serious dance tutorial on how to dance for women. This video is for both women and males.. i know alot of girls dont know how to grind and are embarrassed to dance for their boyfriends so ladies u can learn from this because it looks even sexier when done by a female.

this will not work when done for EVERY single girl.. alot of girls don’t find this sexy at all,but i guareentee you that the MAJORITY of women LOVE to see a guy dance this way.. it turns them on and it makes them wonder if you can move your body like that in bed..

The easiest way to figure out if a girl will enjoy watching you do this.. is to find out what TYPE of music she listens to..
If she listens to any music artists that mostly talks about sex.. that means she will LOVE to see you dance this way and will be wishing she was there to dance with you..
here are a few examples..
Pretty Ricky
Usher
Tyrese
Jagged Edge
J Holiday
Genuwine
Silk
D’ Angelo
Justin Timberlake
LL Cool J
Ludacris
Lil Kim
112
R Kelly
Blackstreet
Bobby Valentino
Ne-Yo
B2K
Brandon Hines
If the girl enjoys listening to any of those artists… theres a good chance that she would love to see a guy who can do these freaky dances.

GIVE PIZZA A CHANCE

New Problem Solvers video from Paperrad

“This could be the best day ever. I’m not being negative, this could be the best day of our lives.”

Also, here we have a snippet from one of my favourite shows when I was growing up – The Curiosity Show. This one is from the 80’s but I was watching it from when I was way younger – like back when I was still into FatCat. I can tell this one is from the 80’s because of Deane’s Canterbury Rugby shirt. It is a Harlequin one – and I also had one of this when I was at high school for wearing during P.E. classes. Which I hated. Anyway basically The Curiosity Show was these two nerds doing science experiments on afternoon kids TV. I would say very similar to CSI in a way. The them song to The Curiosity Show was also very cool and quite trippy. Not the Nickelodeon version from later years FYI.

And here is Fat Cat:

A NEW PLACE

I remember trailing through Melbourne airport just before Christmas and posting on my blog that I was in search of some answers to that question ‘Who am I?’ while staring up at oversized Christmas baubles suspended from the ceiling checking out my distorted reflection. So much has happened since then. It is nice to find some moments of knowing myself – but then other times I wake up and it’s like Freaky Friday and I’ve woken up in someone else’s body. The Cardinal told me tonight about how much she hates washing up cutlery. This was really encouraging – I thought there was something wrong with me cause I also REALLY hate cutlery. I’m so happy to know I’m normal in that respect. I have been talking with Rubber Band Man. To be honest – I thought that maybe he was just a London party dude. I was so wrong. He is funny and clever and such a warm person. It is funny – when you meet someone sometimes you can find out so much about yourself, but at the same time have so much just tipped on it’s head.

Tonight at the Air Commodore’s birthday we had the worse Margaritas known to man at Diner on Curtain Road. I would rather drink bile than go back there again. And here are some pics from Go Bang! which was great. Alex T’s DJing was awesome!


Fav picture of the night.


Me and the Air Commodore.


The greatest DJ. Check out the aura of the decks! Spiritual vibes.

What else to tell you – well there is a LOT. I’ll tell you about the man I has sex with ten years ago that was at the party tonight another time. I think I want to go and thing a bit more about the answer to that question, who am I?

A DAY OFF

I have so much to write from over this weekend – Birthday parties, photographs in the shop with Mrs Kipling and Princess Margaret etc – and it is only Saturday night. But like Spiderman as photographed about, I have to take the day off. You cannot imagine how much I am looking forward to climbing into my bed and drifting off to a peaceful sleep.

Unlike these girls who were obs off to Tek Weh Yurselfs tonight:

Who were happy to pose away at the top of the escalators in Waterloo Station for all and sundry flashing their gusset and giving a wave.

UPDATE

Today is another day of remembrance. It was with great sadness I received the news from Philippa this morning that Jamal the blind cat has passed away. I shed a few tears from my feather down pillows in his memory. Yesterday it was just tears of pain from the Cava hangover.

In a Cava induced stupor:

P.S. Please don’t hate me cause I’m such a babe.

Captain Morgan was a lot friendlier to my system last night which I drank in the company of Alex T, The Cardinal and Amph who Alex T and I called Bongo more than anything else last night. I’m still laughing about the man in the off licence on Brick Lane who gave directions to the nearest ATM as being ‘Go down derre. Long way.’ to Amph and I. The best joke EVER. Can I also say, Amph has the most amazing thighs? He tells me that his family are from Ghana which reminded me of Hugofreegow’s flickr pics

And as Alex T and Amph spent most of the night wrestling while scantily dressed women played musical statues I wasn’t too difficult for me to place Amph in some of those funny wrestlers undies.

OMG and now you have to work out what happened to who for yourselves:
There wasn’t much else left to the imagination after XXCENSOREDXX got a stiffy after XXCENSOREDXX whispered in XXCENSOREDXX’s ear “I can’t wait to see your cock”. I mean they are as homo as each other…

We all drank so much that we all started to look like this at the end of the night:

So I hope today that the sunshine will treat me well today as I need the Vitamin Sun beauty treatment to be babed out for tonight. I am DJing at my old friend Molly’s birthday party from 10pm at the Alphabet Bar on Beak Street in Soho. I’m not allowed to play any ‘black music’ so it will be all italo, pop, disco etc. Which is a great shame as I have been showing a lot of face to R Kelly’s Hairbraider track. A beautiful slow jam.

So in summary, this is my life right now:

ANZAC DAY

They shall grow not old,
As we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them,
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun,
And in the morning
We will remember them. Lest we Forget

Anzac Biscuits

1 cup dessicated coconut
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter
1 level teaspoon baking soda
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
2 tablespoons boiling water

Mix dry ingredients, melt butter & syrup together in small saucepan. Dissolve soda in boiling water, add to dry ingredients. Cook until golden brown on 180c

And my shame while writing this rather solemn post is that I have a Cava fuelled hangover courtesy of Liliana at the George and Dragon rendering me quite useless for anything other than rest and recuperation before the opening of Nervous Stephens exhibition tonight.

GOT A TISSUE?

Well I’m guessing that there wasn’t a lot going on for anyone over the Easter break cause come Saturday, my webstats were through the roof! Thanks for stopping by!

The ‘result’ of my long weekend is that I have a cold and spent yesterday in bed with Season 4 CSI: Crime Scene Investigation DVD’s [the LA one] and then got a total of 3 hours sleep last night. Today I am in my PJ’s listening to the Mr Martelo mixes he sent me chilling out in front of the heater. Cardinal is going to be excited to learn that I have to have a section of my wall ripped out to mend some damp and re-plastered just like her and I can’t wait to discuss the details with her.

I was also happy to read that Manara had said in one of her Flickr descriptions that I have a beautiful house

A shame that everything in the picture came from IKEA.

A trip to IKEA is more fun that a Racine / Wendy James gig any day of the week however. Last week or so I went with Pippa / Max / Paul Gazz / Caz / Jazz to the Bloomsbury Bowls to check out Wendy James’ band. I have to say it was pretty shockingly bad. Had she chosen her band to be the same age as her I think the show would have been more convincing. Sadly the show looked like a bit of a weird Whatever Happened to Baby Jane scenario. And none of the songs were dope.

I heard some really ‘dope’ songs on Sunday night when I went to GO BANG! at East Village on though. I was going to save writing about it until my sub-editor Alex T told me how to spell Nadia Kasaiba correctly but I was so happy I went out that I can’t resist writing soon. I’m sure that next time Alex has eaten a kebab he will be more than happy to breathe the after effects all over me and tell me about my shitty spelling. As per usual I had some spiritual moments with Alex as we discussed the universe. I cried AGAIN! [I know!!!] Which could either be the subject matter of the conversation OR the number of drinks I had consumed. My drink of choice was Malibu and Pineapple. Steph called it ‘The Summertime Ho’ but I think a better name for it is ‘The Sweat’. I was also very happy to meet Alex’s friend Amph who guessed I was 26 years old. I’m gonna guess he really thought I was about 29-30 and was being nice. Even so, he will be getting a Christmas card from me this year.

OMG. I just went to Flickr to get another picture to put online and you know what it said to me?

O HAI Lektrogirl!
Now you know how to greet people in Lolspeak!

Errr I don’t think so. I think Flickr just overstepped the mark there.

I got a ‘zimce’ [German for SMS] on my ‘handy’ from Mrs Vanderbilt in Berlin today. I miss them like crazy already. We went to Canteen the other day before they left and it was pretty terrible.

Bachelor Food. And the waiter didn’t find it funny when I asked him what his problem was that they didn’t have soya milk for a latte.

Oh this was cool: My nephew Tom who is two and I have this really amazing joke.

It is pretty complicated and esoteric so if you don’t get it, I kind of understand. Basically it works like this: I go up to him and say “What’s that smell?” and he thinks for a minute and then says “It’s me!!” Then we both crack up laughing. It even works over the telephone. It is a really great joke. In a few more years I will teach him a little more toilet humour and lesbian jokes. Anyway Tom is really into Cars and loves being a Jedi [Mum... Can you love a Jedi?] even though he has never managed to stay awake through one entire Star Wars movie.
