STRANGE IDEA OF LOVE

So I made a new video – this time of Pippa’s band All About Eve Babitz. One night they performed at Paul Gorman’s Lost Society party and Superduck and I filmed it. And another night I chased Pippa around Soho and then left it a few months. Finally yesterday I edited it all together.

This is my favourite All About Eve Babitz song. And I am really pleased with the video. I was on the phone to Superduck last night while he was stuffing envelopes at his high flying desk job and he told me that to edit the video’s we shot together would be easy. I didn’t tell him that I was actually trying to sync the live performance to an MP3 studio track and that the songs were at different tempos. FYI Nick Abrahams. Then he went on to tell me about bee keeping in Iceland.

LOST SOCIETY

I just got back from Paul Gorman’s night, The Look down in South London. Pippa’s band All About Eve Babitz played again and Superduck and I got the chance to video tape two songs on two cameras at once and hopefully I will be able to edit it together to make a little video for them.


Here is a picture of the only cunt I want to know about right now. [See pussy smelling face story below for reference.] Anyway I was quite thrilled in a pathetic way to be shooting video with Nick cause he has made a documentary about Depeche Mode, proper pop videos as well as being close personal friends with Jeremy Deller. Which if you ever read the Shop At Maison B blog you would know I have already made a prick of myself in front of him.
Important to note – here is Nick freestyling his first “showerface” on his own. A LOT. Please send me your review on my first pupil’s “showerface” performance. I was actually trying to explain this to DJ Assault at the time but Nick really got a firm grasp of the “showerface” concept.


When I was in Milan I was so miserable. Here is my eye. I went and catalogued all the people in the SLOWHITE section who were on the stands there this way. I looked the tiredest. But I think it was all the secret crying I was doing.


Katharine on the other hand was coping with Milan this way.


I’m thinking of starting a new business in my lunch break. For one pound people can visit the Katharine Hamnett archive for one hour and be truly amazed at all the crazy shit we have out in the back room. I swear to got – Cassette Playa and Silverlink would LOVE it! I always think of Carrie when I see the paisley jeans for some reason. They are pretty fly jeans.


Anyway here I am a bit tired and sad. But tomorrow is another day, which just happens to be FRIDAY!! Woo-Hoo!! One more day til Saturday and that means I can go and meet Cory and get a guided tour of his new exhibition opening at Max Wigram Gallery on New Bond Street. This show is going to be really awesome. I relaly looking forward to seeing Cory again and what new direction he is moving in.

Okay – I’m too tired now.

OMG!! I forgot to say XXCENSOREDXX has been telling me how horney he has been lately and how he can’t stop having sex and he was thinking that by 40 this would have stopped but it totally hasn’t. Which was a bit weird cause like I don’t know XXCENSOREDXX THAT well. So I told him all about the time I discovered that XXCENSOREDXX had been sending emails to men off gay sex sites [advertising himself as 9" un-cut who likes nipple work and leather] and reading all the replies from different guys – some even including pictures of themselves with giant dildos up their bums [do men's call them dildos too or is there a gay word?] or sitting astrid a horse in the nude except for leather chaps and a waistcoat.

Misery Loves Company

Pippa, my ex-boss and singer in All About Eve Babitz, was asking me one day about resizing the original picture of Eve Babitz and Marcel Duchamp she found off the internet for print:

So when I told Pippa that it wouldn’t be possible and she should re-photograph the picture with her and James it didn’t think much more of it. I said it as a semi serious joke and low and behold they went and did it!


Check out this amazing photo by Sarah Lee.
It is now the cover of the CD Misery Loves Company by All About Eve Babitz.

Brains and I call the music “adult contemporary” and it certainly won’t be everyone’s cup of tea [or sneaky glass of Blush from the Three Greyhounds] but some of the songs I really like. You can hear them on the All About Eve Babitz MySpace page.
