So I have now left L.A and am hanging out in the colder shores of San Francisco. I enjoyed the whole Los Angeles lifestyle: dining, lunching, mani +pedi, contemporary art, driving around (hey I did get behind the wheel for like 5 minutes!). And the sunshine!
I haven’t cooked a meal since I have left Paris, and you know what, I’m not missing it that much. Maybe I’m not a housewife-type after all.
And of course, paying hommage to the amazing Salvatore Cusato today. RIP dude!
I’ve been slightly obsessed with Chic at the moment. Now that I’ve revived my passion for them I need to update my record collection so I’m looking for any kind of rare 12″s that I could lay my hands on.
Seriously I think they probably epitomize the best of disco, I mean other musicians must feel so shit for not thinking first of writing such bangers.
I just found out that they are playing in Paris (well Nile Rodgers is going to be there, I’m not sure what’s happened to the rest of the band) on the 11th of October, with Kool and the Gang. Not so much a big Kool and the Gang fan but I’m sure it’s going to be great.
Apart from that, summer in Paris, typical, rainy, quiet, I’ve been busy at work me actually. Thinking about stuff, making plans and shit, it’s all good.
Okay, I have been bad. I have been a really bad blogger and maybe I should apologize.
Not that anyone really cares but, blah.
I took like, a month off without warning, but I hope that in the meantime you didn’t forget me, and here I am again, ready to talk disco and food and life and shit.
During this month well stuff happened: job interviews, plans for holidays, the renovation (now completed) of the seaside apartment, learning that some friends were going to have a baby, and also getting married, thinking about things, dieting, wanting to go to berlin, new york, maybe lisbon, who knows, and coming to the conclusion that after all, everything is not going to be so bad.
Watched Sex and the City 2 almost puked: I’m sorry but no swearing and almost no fucking? Not good enough mate.
I’ve had these bangers on my mind lately, you too?
Whilst I was playing tunes at the tapas party the other day I don’t know why but I started thinking about that track, “Miura” by Metro Area. I think I hadn’t listened to it in maybe 5 years; still sounds awesome though.
Oh yeah and the party was well fun too-look at these happy faces.
