“Objects aren’t imbued with any great mystery once you’ve pressed the ‘add to basket’ button; it’s far more appealing when you’ve been searching for them and then come across it accidently.” Weatherall in FACT mag this week
“Breivik’s ideas are in defence of western civilisation.” Francesco Speroni (Berlusconi’s former minister) Umm… umm… yeah they are and it’s a point we should fully debate. In fact I thought Davey’s just tabling a motion right now.
“I think I could create more than 10,000 jobs if you give me £9 Billion” Will Self onNewsnight.
“I’d buy a dog just so I could name him deadmau5 and take him home and kick the fucking shit out of it” I mean, it’s pretty harsh I agree but it was definitely the best quote I heard last night…
Alvin Toffler, window boxes, round black plastic and fields… that’s the order of play for the next few days.
Oooh, how about those Olympic medal designs eh? Got me pretty hot under the collar… the original fantastic logo cost £400K… wonder how much they cost? Speaking of Olympics. Will Self’s rather excellent rant on the BBC the other night was brilliant. “So it’s a shopping centre and a training centre for people to sell more things…”
Good article as highlighted by Mr Electric Minds, on why we should celebrate Britain’s contribution to clubbing… and ahem in other related news on Hemminway he’s designing recyclable McDonalds Olympic uniforms…
Deviating, check this rather great mix - Weatherall/Johnston/Electric Elephant/Sun
I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m taking time for mourning Amy too… that goes without saying. So much so I made this little mix in her memory I hope you like it. I’ve also made sure 7 of her tracks make the top 40 this week. It is sad she’s gone and joined the 27 club… but I was reading some quote questioning why if Mark Ronson considered her a sister why he didn’t do more. Anyway, I should probably tread carefully here, I’ve not been keeping up with it all to be honest!
It’s far too complicated for me to even begin making an informed point about it but pretty horrific follow-up report on Channel 4′s film on Sri Lankan war crimes the other night. Soldiers ordered to ‘finish the job’
Dr. Schrempp’s Chem Lab – “oh that is fantastic, good lord”… still, despite that quite fun.
The wonderful Rich Neville aka Cat Bin Lady’s blog
Win a hotel, VIP tix and travel to Eastern Electrics next month… here. See how I slipped that one in there?
Steve Mason’s lovely new Dub album with Dennis Bovell is out this week, I’d suggest you pick it up… cos it’s well lush. Particularly now the sun’s shining.
Free download here and a nice little interview em both.
Right then… internet’s not being too inspiring this week, must know the sun’s out finally.
I’m off to play rekkids in a field… not very FARR away.
Good weekend all… ace stuff going on. Specially FARR fest, Bear Factory and Paradise Garage tour @ fabric… bigness!!
