Music Sounds Better With You

January 29, 2009

Just picked up another remix to one of those rare songs that is always welcome on a playlist. Music Sounds Better With You by Stardust.


The Dirty remix grows. Can’t really beat the original though.

Sébastien Tellier at the Empire

January 25, 2009

The night finally came and it amazingly went. We arrived early, serendipitously all bumping into each other in an instant on the tube, and were treated to some excellent support acts. It would be nice to know who the support acts were but since the only place they were listed was in biro on one of the posters near the front door, that isn’t going to be easy. As you can see from the photo below I was in a prime position

Like I said, it was a good night…

Fairmont – Gazebo (Joe and Will Ask? Remix)

January 23, 2009

The days are slowly getting longer. Soon we’ll probably have another non-summer.

Short days.

Short days.

This creeper remix of Fairmont‘s Gazebo has been a regular this week on the playlist. Definitely a grower.

I did buy Saints Row 2 in the end. I want to say I’m sorry but I enjoyed it way too much. If anything I regret getting sucked into the hype of GTAIV. You can read my review where I draw more than slightly bias comparisons over at Remedial Waste.

Pirate or Ninja? Both please!!



Matt & Kim

January 21, 2009

Matt & Kim‘s new album Grand came out. Seems President Babscoronation wasn’t the only thing going on. Good luck to the man!

Kim Deals sister?!

Kim Deal's sister?!

If you’re not familiar with Mat & Kim, as I was until a couple of hours ago, they’re a two man person band from Brooklyn, New York. They formed in 2004 and released their self-titled debut album in 2006. Thanks wiki.

Where are the Pixies when you need them?

Does anyone else think this Kim looks a bit like Kim Deal? Love the Pixies. Do we want more or are they better left as they are?

Battlestar Galactica Week

January 19, 2009

I hate Battlestar Galactica. I hate it because I know one day soon it will end. Every episode I watch brings leaves me with one less. However, not to be too despondent I have for no especially good reason, except maybe that the final run has started, chosen this week to be ‘Battlestar Galactica‘ week.

In order to be part of this momentous occasion you may want to do the following…

  • Replace all expletives with “Frack“.
  • Reassure everyone that whatever is going on is apart of “God’s Plan“. Not sure how do do this? Ask Sarah Palin.
  • Only respond to your Viper call sign. Make sure it sounds imposing…like ‘Husker‘…no wait…’Hotdog‘…Well at least make sure it is original, like ‘Kat‘…Okay, pick whatever you want. Good luck explaining this one to everyone.
  • Imagine Tricia Helfer is your own personal Jesus.
Make me a believer...

Make me a believer...

  • Suspect everyone of being a cylon.
  • Especially yourself.
  • Any confusion that occurs is due to DRAIDUS interference.

People’s reactions are priceless. This should cause at least a few frightened looks.

Back from space and to the music

The Simpsons and Justice

January 16, 2009

Not sure where this came from. It’s up on Justice‘s MySpace.

Holier than thou...

Wait a minute, this sounds like rock and or roll.

I’m ill, again, so excuse the short post. Also noticed Danger is playing in London…that is London, Ontario…What the hell? There’s only one London and I’m in it. You can take our name but you can’t take our spirit!!…or lack of manners…actually I guess you could take that.


Sébastien Tellier – Kilometer (Aeroplane ‘Italo 84’ Remix)

January 13, 2009

As if by fate I was listening to Monsieur Tellier‘s album Sexuality this morning for the first time in a while when what should appear on Ohh! Crapp… than one of most mind blowingly, chest thumpingly good remixes I’ve heard in quite some time.


I’m a big fan of the original Kilometer and the album as a whole is a marvel. Give it a listen…
