Hello! Bonjour! Willkommen!

I GOT TAGGED

TWO TIMES IN ONE DAY!! First my Auntie sent me an email about the YearOfTheDragonWikkid.doc which is basically a number/list thing chain letter. I did it just because I was actually really busy today and when that happens, anything to procrastinate. The upshot of the Auntie chain email thing is that Pippa Brooks knows me well, Jasmine is my Lucky Star, the song A$$ Clap by Khia makes me think of Silverlink, I connect the song Hairbraider with my ex Paul [I know!! MEGALOLZ!!] who I really care about but just don’t get along with This Guy’s In Love with You by Sasha Distel is my state of mind and I’m In Luv With A Stripper is how I feel about life. SO RANDOM. I am supposed to pass the email onto 9 other people due to the number I wrote down at the beginning of the whole questionnaire but as I really am not into this kind of thing at all I wasn’t going to bother.

Then LOW AND BEHOLD Pippa Brooks you know my top lady friend cursed me with a plague sent to her via Paul Gorman of the Look Presents Blog.

The rules are set by Simon Reynolds [dunno who he is]: “List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to.” Only I don’t know 7 other people who write blogs so I won’t be spreading this around. It is true – I am that self obsessed. However please if you feel the urge feel free to post your top 7 as a comment to this post. Remember you can post with Live ID [remember that hideous moment when I had to switch of anonymous posts cause of the shit stirrer trying to make trouble between me and my ex and his new girlf? LOLZ - it didn't work! The 'alleged perpetrator' of that posting crime is now single. I hope they are crying their eyes out on their pillow every night... Awww that wasn't very nice of me. But that is cause I'm such a bad person I guess.]

So here are my 7 tracks:

Khia My Neck My Back

Well I am not ACTUALLY listening to this song at all – but it is rolling around in my head due to the substantial neck injury I have sustained recently. I have to comment that my neck has improved a whole lot more today after receiving an amazing massage that I was trying not to enjoy too much and keeping my knees together cause I was in the presence of children as well as a total babe. Khia always reminds me of Pippa – because she used to have the Thug Missus CD. That is still a joke like 6 or 7 years later.

Amon Duul II Archangel Thunderbird

I KNOW!! A Prog Rock track made by Krauts while lying in bed and tripping on acid. In fact the comments on YouTube are like “chaos6270 (1 month ago) best version of this is on the live in london album did some good trips to that.” SO NOT ME but I love this song. Please excuse the hideous video. It was the least offensive I could find.

Kap Bambino New Breath

I’d also like to sneak in SAVE by Kap Bambino as well but I don’t want to expend too many of my choices to the same band. I think I might have post them before as well.

Roger Miller Dang Me

This song reminds me of my father getting totally shit faced and listening to his Roger Miller album and singing this song over and over. I remember him from when I was really little driving home drunk, coming out of the car covered in sick and my mum having to hose him down in the back yard.
There are a number of Roger Miller videos on YouTube but only from when he is an old man with too much Botox.
Okay so obviously it looks like I dunno WTF I am doing cause I forgot about this song SLK – Hype Hype and but liked the story of my vomiting father. The Cardinal and I after enough to drink will be bouncing down any Dalston Street getting all Hype Hype. Oh and old jokes! I used to crack Nameless up singing round the house “Hype Hype Lotion Hype Hype Lotion Gonna Get You Wid Da Hype Hype Errrrghhh”.

Scooter Maria

This version is the remix of the original song, featuring Dick Rules, and DJ Mark Acardipane. So fucking hard to pick which Scooter song I love the best but this is pretty fantastic. Guaranteed to get me super hyped at the right time! Watching this makes me miss all my family in Hamburg that I never get to see enough.
And OMG you need to check them out back in the day.
Okay and before they were a rave band, they were THIS:

OKAY!!??

Pineapples Come Closer

Best song. I love this so much. This is how I feel when I fall in love and get all mushy and teenage again. The best feeling ever.

Ginuwine Pony

Those who know me, know that this song is on my ALL TIME GREATEST SONGS EVER OF EVER EVER EVER and whenever it comes on where ever I am I am just flipping out all over the room.
Like these two…
I am trying to make head or tail of this video as I type. I bet her mother must be proud. And I bet that guy is really proud of himself.
So awkward.
And who was the camera person?

And as an aside to this whole 7 videos thing

J Smoov in the parking lot. How is that that kids the the UK can only come up with shanking in the 02 centre carpark here in Finchley Road? Shouldn’t they be up to a load of sexual healing in the sunshine good times with their homes after training on the track team Stateside?

THURSDAY UPDATE:
Another reason why I hate writing lists like this is now today if I were to list again, it would be TOTALLY different. I mean, I forgot Sexy Results that I listen to once a day, In Flagranti, Tom Ware, Hikashu, YMO blah blah and DJ mixes from all my favourite usual suspects – DJ Venom, DJ Guy, Bok Bok & Manara, Goon & Koyote, Bitch Ass Darius etc.

HOME TONIGHT

If like me you aren’t going out to see Kap Bambino play in London and stay home and catch up on CSI etc instead, here is a little video with what you are missing out on.

Today I got caught in the hail storm. It was wonderful. Like electricity.

I never thought I would…

Well I said I would never make a blog, but today I finally relented and here I am on the couch with my vile cold editing the template of my new blog.

Last night I went out with Roxy to Chalk, the night at the Scala with all the promise and potential but either I don’t get wasted enough or the rooms are never quite full enough. Or hang on a minute… we are just in London. I was super excited cause my friend Teki Latex was gonna be there with his band TTC. Also playing was Kap Bambino who I have been dying to see live for a long time.

Last time I saw Teki was in Paris when he was hosting the last “New Jack Swing Bitch Ass Darius” Diamond Grills party put on by DJ’s Goon and Koyote. I was there with Prolkoller who was nursing a broken heart and she had some deathly cold that weekend and so to cheer her up I was being totally retarded, getting more and more drunk, crazy dancing, rolling around on the stage and humping the speakers [Phillipa Cardinal didn't believe me when I told her this is my usual behaviour.] Teki did his usual “Now all the girls get up on stage and let me see you shake your ass routine” but being the faux female equlity dudette that I am, I decided to get a few guys on stage and make them dry hump me for comical effect. After doing so, Teki was giving the big ups to Lektrogirl and pointing and me, so I gave his finger fellatio to a cheering Parisian audience. However I think his girlfriend wasn’t too thrilled. Hmmm… so where was I… yes, London. I had a t-shirt to give Teki from Bitch Ass Darius – one of the super hot NES Records t-shirts and a Katharine Hamnett LOVE t-shirt from the office. But thinking about it, Roxy and I realised we should have given TTC some of the limited edition LOVE and PEACE t-shirts that will be available on the website soon.

Through the haze of Benedryl cold and flu capsules, nasal sprays and cough sizzurp the TTC show was AMAZING!! Except for the fucking strobe light that pierced through my forehead right into my Occipital lobe where I had headache from a variety of reasons. They wiped the floor with JME who did a little showcase before them who was going on about MySpace like he invented it. TTC we so good in fact I missed going upstairs in time to catch Kap Bambino and all that was on by the time I got there was this revolting band that was excruciating to listen to. I had to wait for Roxy to weave her way up there in her Christian Louboutin’s. Seriously how she does it I dunno.

So on the way out of the club, we saw XXCENSOREDXX from XXCENSOREDXX wearing on of the new Katharine E Hamnett t-shirt shapes we had biked over to XXCENSOREDXX on Friday afternoon for them to using as a buying sample. This is the equivalent of a producer walking into a nightclub hearing the master version of his/her new album that had been sent to the pressing plant the day before on the soundsystem as they walk in the door. It’s a lot. A LOT. The t-shirts, with specially selected historical slogan is to be used for the front windows of XXCENSOREDXX. How the fuck this sample ended up on XXCENSOREDXX by Saturday night was beyond both Roxy and I!! We were both totally shocked. Roxy went up to XXCENSOREDXX and asked really politely where XXCENSOREDXX had got the sample from. XXCENSOREDXX replied “I work for Katharine Hamnett”. Roxy said “No you don’t, I work for her. Where did you get it from?” XXCENSOREDXX said “I know Katharine Hamnett.” Which was a total lie straight in our face… Then we ran into Mollywood and Noriko who told us that last weekend they had huge arguments with XXCENSOREDXX as well. The whole encounter with XXCENSOREDXX turned prickly – she could have just told the truth and saved herself a lot of bother.

I’m sorry I have no cool pictures to accompany my first official solo blog – I haven’t replaced my camera since my bag got nicked last week. If you want to see some hilarious pictures, you should check Prancehall’s blog with his fashion pics themed “Tools”. I have to say I was choking laughing looking at this. Oh – I also saw Prancehall dancing to house music the other week.
