Me and A.C went to Amstedam in early April and it was dope (and nah, we didn’t smoke any). I forgot that Amsterdam was actually quite small, and we did just did loads of walking.

Took the train and went to the beach 30 mins away to have ice cream.
And after a total failure on the first apartment we had booked we just treated ourselves to a classy minimalist style hotel. Banging.

So, you’re ready for the weekend?
Gonna spend the whole saturday swooning at my 3 year old nephew and then who knows what’s going to happen on sunday. Kinda love sundays now.

Here I am

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?

There are quite a few things that remind of my childhood, but when by accident I found this track on the big world of the internet I was immediately taken back to somewhere around 1991: it would have been Sunday morning, or now that I think of it, probably more a Saturday, because Sundays were not so lazy, you’d have to be all ready and proper for lunch at grandma’s, with your shoes shining and your hair tied with a bow, smelling of Tartine et Chocolat and carrying the cake.

So yes this definitely reminded me of a lazy Saturday morning, still in my pyjamas, feeding my birds while my mum was probably doing various housework or maybe chatting on the phone to friends, talking about how the week had been; all this time Media Tropical was the chosen station on the radio and it was playing something like this.

the drums

My dad is drummer, did you know that?
Not sure if it’s got anything to do with the fact that I love a good drums part in a song. It can be live or from a computer I think it can just take any song from boring to banging.
Listen to these, well BANGING. I know I posted the Mu track before but I just couldn’t resist.

Call me up?

Seriously how sleazy do they look? Would you take bonafied lovin from these dudes?

It was the 18th of June 2004, a Friday.
According to my my livejournal, that day I had gone to work at the v&a shop as usual but I had been upset about my flatmate Anthony moving back to Canada.
So yeah on Fridays at the time it was all about getting ready for Our Disco at Plastic People in the evenings. (Just like before Mondays had been all about getting ready for Trash).
Chromeo and Optimo were playing that night so of course I went and I remember I didn’t really like Chromeo at all, but PMD was so excited about them and I just didn’t understand why.
Still according to livejournal, this is what I wrote at 4.27 am as I came home from the club:

I just came back from Our Disco and my feet dont even hurt because i found the best 5 pounds heels at Gemini shoes on kingsland high street.I got pretty good kissing tonight. On the other hand,i feel that my dancing skills are going downhill, sometimes i think i’ve lost all coordination.
Now i’m going to go to bed with my new ‘goo’ t-shirt. I want a 7″ that costs $120,it this crazy?
Late night/early morning posts shouldnt be allowed really.

Lol at my life. Anyway I’ve digressed a lot.
All this to say…well throughout the years I’ve actually grown to like Chromeo, and Dave P is a bit sexy isn’t he? This is the thing, I like them, but I’m always a bit unsure about them and when I listen to their records I feel a little bit sick at the time.
And thinking about it, Dave P reminds me of the annoying and sleazy guy in the nightclub that comes to sit next to you and chats you up all night with cheesy lines.
