RAINY SATURDAY


Shelving, originally uploaded by Beniah Brawn.

I’m so in love with these pictures that Frecker has been uploading. He has one of the best Flickr streams.

Well what did I do today? Well more to the point, what have I been doing with my life the past few days? I’m not sure – I’ve been so busy that I had to sleep from 8pm to 11am last night missing Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and Cocadisco and XXCENSOREDXX making special faces with XXCENSOREDXX. God I wish I could tell you the details of that but I can’t. Oh Lord!!

Today The Cardinal and I braved the foulest weather that was so LONGING me out to go to the fabric shop on Kingsland Road to buy some material to make The Cardinal a skirt. We found some great eye prints and great crown prints. NICE. Then after persistant phone calls from Mr Chips we went down to Brick Lane to see Silverlink with Jammer and Badness shooting the video for “The Message is Love”.

When we got there, a gang of people were jumping around with flags to the track and Mr Chips was going CCRRAAZZYY. I wondered why he was puffing so much when he answered the phone. And then I knew why. I hadn’t lolled so much since I was in the bin with him after dinner:

and

The Cardinal and I took a moment to absorb the various carnivalesque outfits galdem were wearing – neon pink stuff, one was dressed as a bee – all in hooker shoes. Not sure how I felt about that. Or the outfit that Jammer had on later that looked a little bit like girls pyjamas from Woolworths in shade of lavender. What happened to this boss look that Jammer used to merk?

As I have said before, it would be my dream to be a menswear stylist. Now that I have met Cesca who has promised that we can be a team then maybe it will be true. Silverlink was looked banging of course. He was wearing slightly less baggy trousers than normal. I want him to take them in just a little bit more and I would if Cesca and I were his personal stylists.

The Cardinal and I had lunch at Canteen and again the service was shoddy and they gave me a cappuccino instead of a latte. YGM?! NOT ON!! Also the Welsh Rarebit was over cheesy etc. I always assume that place is going to be better than it is and swear never to go back. Most importantly today I totally won out the game “Your Boyfriend” against The Cardinal. She had hangoverface so she wasn’t on the ball. I even cleaned up with the game “You In Ten Years” which I invented in the same moment.

Tonight I am going out to PIZZA. Which I hope will be fun.

THE MESSAGE IS LOVE


“Urban”

Finally, people can hear The Message Is Love by Silverlink featuring Jammer and Badness by checking out the Dirty Canvas MySpace page – second track down. I’ll wait til someone else posts an MP3 and leach their file for you to listen on this blog directly. Anyway – it got three rewinds on 1Xtra by Ras Kwame. Starkey gave it 2. The tune is so hype. And it is amazing how they got Haddaway to sing in the break down.

REAL LIFE CSI / EVERY CLOUD HAS A SILVERLINK

This morning while sitting at Valerie’s on Old Compton Street with Pippa and Max we were curious about what exactly happened at Costa’s. There was shit everywhere, the shop still open but cordoned off, no signs, guarded by cops… I walked the periphery to check out if I could clock any evidence that would provide clues as to what went on but there was nothing. Besides, a lot of vital evidence would have been washed away in the rain. Pippa and I had to explain to Max that fingerprints do not last in water. All the hours of CSI we had watched was important. It looked like someone had lobbed a table at someone though. By the afternoon the place was full of homosexuals again.

Speaking of people I spotted on Old Compton Street today, Jammer and I believe Badness were walking arm in arm along the road with two other people carrying loads of shopping bags. It was great to see them and I wanted to rush up to them and say “HOW ABOUT YOUR NEW TRACK COMING OUT THE ONE WITH SILVERLINK ???!!! Remember me Jammer? I’m your girlfriend Lektrogirl?! You know… The one that promised you could do it up the bum if only you would call.”

Jammer never did call, but probably cause he was busy in the studio with Silverlink and Badness to make a new track being released as a 12″ on No Hats No Hoods. It is some fucked up Soca vibes called “The Message is Love”. When Linden from HOUSE OF WINGS [R.I.P. those wings] heard the original Soca instrumental by Silverlink he went nuts for it. If you want to cop and earful of the track, rather than a Costa coffee table, visit Silverlink’s MySpace page and you can listen to the instrumental there [called 'Love is the Message' there]

You can also check the No Hats No Hoods MySpace for when it is finally released and where you can buy it from. Listen to the hilarious Are You Ready EP Promo. I couldn’t stop laughing — “And all other record stores that know what they are doing“. LOL.

What Day Is It?

Oh Man! So I’m awake now and I really wanted a cool chill out weekend with a lot of rest. Next weekend I’m in Paris with Pippa and that will take a lot of energy eating cake. Etc. Max is also going to be there too I think. He will want to chew the fat. But I don’t want to do that. Pippa and I planned to check out Fifi Chachnil but I don’t think I can stand Max’s tourettes whilst doing that and also the £1200 for the ticket to Australia for Christmas burnt a hole in my… soul… Anyway where was I?! Okay so on Friday night was the Extreme Animals show at the Old Blue Last. I like that pub a lot and think it is great for “traditional” bands, DJ’s and MC’s but not the best for making a big gay sweatbox – which I was definitely in the mood for. But many very very cool things happened though, which resulted in this:


Thug Missus

Daniel ASBO D kissed me right on the mouth in front of Prancehall when I said hello. It was a total moment. My knickers couldn’t keep it all in. Prancehall won’t let me take pictures of him any more. It doesn’t matter. I still have a lot of old ones I can post and make stupid jokes that I don’t mean and totally offend him with…


The Incredible Hulk


Philipa promoting the 7Yeezie / DO IT! party featuring DJ Assault

After the sound check, Philipa, James, Jacob, David and I all went and had dinner together. James was being the Alpha Male all night. But that is okay cause he is doing some design work for really big cosmetic companies right now and I’m sure his office is like full of girls walking around in bath robes getting facial treatments and bikini waxes. Philipa and I were trying to calculate the number of beers she could drink to stay under the legal limit cause she had to drive the drum kit back again. We had a good time at dinner with a lot of warm converstation and friendly laughs.
I wish we had invited these guys along. They would have really helped keep our positive vibes buoyant.


Brains, Easychord, Thugly.

Oh no – hang on it’s okay – Brains got loose.

Paul and Paul


Silverlink and Paul came.

Cassetteplaya came.


The Extreme Animals came.

And with the rythmic wild congo style deep from africa spiritual drumming of David:

Jacob got naked:

Silverlink and Brains got sexual and demanded Carrie and I perform a Booty-Off with one another:

And with the out of control vibes rising I spiritually raped Jacob:


And the whole night ended in a fried chicken orgy back on my sofa bed at 2AM. We listened to Mo-Do and all fell asleep.
BOOYAH!

P.S. Also to note XXCENSOREDXX and XXCENSOREDXX are hating on XXCENSOREDXX right now cause they feel like XXCENSOREDXX isn’t being a good enough friend right now. There was some major air pie around.

P.P.S. Also, XXCENSOREDXX writes gossip as their main job. But XXCENSOREDXX is the first person to give me grief if I write something here that XXCENSOREDXX doesn’t like. XXCENSOREDXX’s justification is that the people I write about are people me and all my friends know which is personal stuff. Maybe I have ideas about my station and I think that me and all my friends live in our own celebrity stratosphere, but are celebrities people too?

HOUSE OF WINGS

The other day after work I went round to Brains studio and met up with him and Silverlink who was there. We sat around and bitched about XXCENSOREDXX who I was only too happy to tell Silverlink what a bunch of c***s they are. And the guys guffawed when I told them I had XXCENSOREDXX XXCENSOREDXX on the back of the tour bus. Together Brains, Silverlink and I ate the best fried chicken in North London from HOUSE OF WINGS on Holloway Road over the road from where the palm reader used to be. Cause Brains lives so nearby, we get it home delivered – the dudes just bring it over once it is cooked. All the chicken is cooked from fresh and there are a gang of different sauces.



We decided that we should make HOUSE OF WINGS a website BUT would you believe it, they already have one.

So there we were all chill feeling eating chicken, corn bread and macaroni pie when suddenly this happened:

Silverlink and Brains did something unusual. Woah. Wierd.

Later they went to see Planning To Rock and I went home cause I had to work with Pippa at Shop At Maison B. Paul turned up later and told Pippa that Alex Tea has an OLD picture of her performing in her band Posh on his Flickr. I had been avoiding telling her cause someone had said in the comments they had recently seen her getting off the tube at Waterloo declaring Pippa looked old now. Which is never nice to hear. But Pippa did say “Well I am over forty.” So over coffee and cake we webstalked this girl who claimed Pippa looked old… Our conclusion: Pippa is no Dorian Gray and this girl is no oil painting either.

It is alway great hanging out with Pippa and working. We made some videos for her boutique Shop At Maison B which you can see on her blog here. There are all the guys from Cuts modelling the mens Obey t’s that are in stock and Pippa, Hannah and I are wearing a bunch of other stuff for women.

Joe and Duke came in for a visit too. They always end up licking me, squashing me, wrestling me or climbing me like I’m a tree. Which is the coolest fun. But the only way to get them to step off is to take pictures or make movies of them. Which they love more than ANYTHING!
