This is my number 1 favourite Roxy Music track. Makes me want to wear a tuxedo, smoke a cigarette and look as cool as Bryan Ferry.
I had to prove it. Here’s Roxy Music’s ‘Out Of the Blue’ any uncanny similarity to Coldplay’s ‘God Put A Smile On Your Face’ is completely accidental …
This is one of my favourite Coldplay tracks, not least because it bears an uncanny resemblance to Roxy Music’s ‘Out Of the Blue’. Prove me wrong if you dare …
Some songs and albums have an extra special significance. Coldplay at their stadium rocking best.
'Reach Inside' - This is a jazz house nostalgia moment that brings a smile to my face every time. It never fails to kick every dancer's ass all these years later. Pure class.
The many beautiful dress of Lupita Nyong’o.
Here is proof that Lupita Nyong’o looks absolutely stunning in anything. Her pleated pale blue Oscars dress is breath-taking and yet beautifully understated. Perfection.
Love this nasty bass …
This record has haunted me since its release and always makes me want to get nasty on the dancefloor. Switch and Sinden tear Santigold a new one.
Joni Mitchell ‘The Hissing of Summer Lawns’ one of my all time favourite albums. Here’s the sublime title track - perfect Sunday night listening.
this makes me dance like a crazy woman. I dedicate this song to my sisters Paula Burdess and Elizabeth Cameron because I know you can both drop to this too.
this is just beautiful.
Now why didn’t Apple invest in art like this for the Steve jobs memorial? Here are some amazing paper sculptures by Chinese artist Li Hongbo are seemingly simple, fantastically detailed, deceptive, challenging and massively pleasing to the eye. Li Hongbo creates at the crossroads where art, design, engineering and technology meet. Mind blowing work.
The winning design was unveiled yesterday in Belgrade, Serbia. Looks to me like the sculptor didn’t like Steve Jobs nor understand his eye for the aesthetically pleasing or the covetous nature of Apple products. I neither find this pleasing nor would want to show it on a shelf in my home, let alone blow it up to 16 feet and display it in the HQ Of Apple in Cupertino but then what do I know…
just when you thought tumblr found all the grossly misogynistic articles about women’s appearances on the internet
the bullshit is high in this one
I rememember dj’ing at a club in the far south of France just as i had shaved my head (Paris period 2010 not Manchester 1991) and being regaled with the promoters theory that women who shaved their heads like me either hated themselves or were mentally ill or psychologically unstable. I politely countered his argument saying it takes a woman who is extremely confident in her own mind to cut their hair. Short hair means you have nothing to hide behind and that you are not afraid to show the world who you really are. And hair being hair - it grows back. I was not rude to him as my gut instinct wanted me to be. I know I live in none of his boxes (or those boxes that people would like me to live in) but it was still the longest half hour drive I have ever had the misfortune to endure and I hadn’t even played a record yet. When I played and the club was full of people who were screaming my name, he was all over me like a bad rash. Now who do you think was the mentally unstable one? This article reminds me of that night.
Took this picture when walking my friend’s dogs for a #Wordpress piece that is formulating in my head. The piece is obviously about #roots - how #deep they go and how even though we must not let them #define us totally we must #neverforget them. #iphone #iphoto #iphonography #iphotography #ibiza #tree #foundations #strong #philosophy #nature #nurture #instagram #instagrammers #dogwalking #writing #thinking (at Marina Botafoc)
