S.F

San Francisco has been banging! And busy!
Enjoying the last leg of my little work-ation, and so far it’s been great. Loving the weather (at least 20°C every day), the people (hi Airbnb HQ!), the food (did anyone say Bi-rite ice cream?).
Coming back with a bag full of records, woo-hoo!

Off I go

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!

Hello weekend!
We are off to Bordeaux and Arcachon for the next 10 days and it should be banging. Can’t wait for oysters and white wine dinners.

Post-travel

Berlin is always a fucking good time: miles and miles of possible walks, cheap asian restaurants, banging friends, hot record stores.
Love it.

Bien

Some tracks are just out of this fucking world, totally next level awesomeness.
The last holidays were totally awesome too.
Oh yeah, and I am totally engaged now.

It was 2003

That year I took kind of a break in my studies and decided to fuck everything off and go to NYC. Nah not really, I wasn’t that wild.
I had to organise a internship for my BA and thought that the Brooklyn Museum would be much cooler than some obscure London gallery.

So I went. And stayed a little bit less than 3 months. I didn’t know a single soul there so it was like a real adventure and I was quite content to be on my own to be honest.
Sometimes I love that, the feeling of being in a completely foreing city where you know absolutely no-one, and no-one knows you.

Anyway it was fun, I went to a lot of gigs, (mostly by blagging my way into them): LCD Soundsystem, Peaches, Rapture, Les Savy Fav etc…
It was already the sunset of electroclash and I remember dancing at Lux with Larry Tee djing to an empty room.

Me at 20, looking fresh

The two records that stuck with this period for me are the Gravy Train and Numbers albums. Both of them are actually pieces of shit when you think about it, but I listened to them so much on my discman (gee what does that even look like?) that I still hold a dear affection for them.
Although the Numbers one is maybe a tad superior in quality, and technically they don’t sound the same at all, both have stupid lyrics, crazy drums and heavy keyboards, and damn I actually love that combo.
Because the choreographies and outfits were so insane, at the time I would have sold mother and father to be an extra member of Gravy Train.
