The new Herman dune Lp "Giant" will be out on october 2006, and i hope i will love it from track 1 to 16 .
I wish i was better at predicting what will be a hit, but believe me, this is one of them.
The video is a new Schoollhouse rock, and as soon as i will finish this post i will go back watching it once more.
By the way, go to their myspace to hear Not on top, from their previous Lp, i was sure that this song was to be a hit when it was released, it didn't. I told you i'm not good at predicting.
I'm better at barbecue parties.
Magnus found this rather old but exciting snapshot observing the man who was 40 years ahead of his time!! Click badge.

I guess this comes as no surprise to anyone. However, I'd like to add that we're not just "construction leaders" - we are The Sexiest and Funniest "construction leaders" around.

#2 - Kurt's comment here didn't make the decision to change this entry any harder.
Updated II: Choco tells us about Those Bastards! which is an interesting and "mean" blog observing other blogs and sites with a blow and torch. Has an evil eye on YouTube.
Worth checking out if you want more critical views of what's really going on behind the "scenes".

stuffed birds play records by putting their bill into the groove (with help from Hans Diepenmaat)
Including a sound sample.
Jeroen Diepenmaat, dutch artist obsessed with vinyl records, record players, tape recorders and the sounds coming from them.
The colloboration project with Hannes van Soest called radio78 ("78rpm records sound from an old van. There is a pavement, illumination, liquor and a very fine atmosphere.") is also very nice. (via BoingBoing)
Note: Jeroen Diepenmaat was splogcasted by Jan Turkenburg here (files are down).
Updated: "A lo-fi copy of the splogcast is available here.
And most of the previous splogcast are to be found here.
Furthermore radio 78 will perform live on october 20 on radio zwolle."
Thanks for the information and updates Jan!
... or he'll shoot you right in your big, green, ugly-f%#king martian head while his slutty android-girlfriend shoots you straight in the f@#king gut!

I need no money. I am rich. Super rich. I pay my hookers at breakfast everyday. Noone has complained yet. At least not about the money..

If you want to get to know Mrs. Miller a little better I'd suggest you to read Skip Heller's article(originally published in #14 issue of Cool and Strange Music Magazine), 'Searching For Mrs. Miller'.
The new aperitivo radio show is trying to find a solution to a major problem, the lack of love, physical love, welcome in aperitivo's love stallion company. You'll find raw funk, soft pop, mad electronic, punk funk, yeye tribute, and dreamy pop. The perfect love cocktail.
I need money.
That's what I want.
Tons of cash.
It costs being a blogger. I need coffee. At least one of these per week.
I need a better chair. The blog is on turbo when I am able to sit comfortably for hours.
I need booze. Prefarably rum, gin and cold czech beers. And a few bottles of wine.
Just in case the blog depression hits. And for inspiration.
Throw in a tiki bar while you're at it. I am not a handy man. I need it skillfully arranged in my one-room apartment (hell! I need a new apartment!).
I need to go to out and have a fine piece of snack every day. Cooking takes time from blogging.
I need a car (transportation is king). And a new camera.
Oh! Almost forgot - I need a really big plasma tv. I shouldn't be forced to look at my miniature tv-set. It's not healthy. I could go blind for heavens sake!
I need vacations now and then. Bahamas would be nice. Brazil. Tahiti.
The relaxation I get now is by no means good enough.
Well, as you can clearly understand I need cash.
Support my needs. Please.
I can't run this blog if you can't cough up at least $1000. For starters.
Ok, the fact that this blog doesn't cost me any money at all DOESN'T CHANGE THE FACT that you really should donate a (very) small amount of your cash to ME.
Is this hard to understand.
I'm worth it.
Give 'em to me - and I maybe blog tomorrow. That's what I'm saying.
Trust me! It's for a good course. My health and comfort is serious business.
And - remember - it's for your own good.

I am always surprised by how much "Black Americana" is still floating around out there.
sci-fi by ambient field, also available via Internet Archive.
Such a beautyfull moment. The one just after making love, the one of complete abandon, something like pure tenderness, when you are still feeling that heat, and the sweet smell of sex, when nothing else exist in the world, apart from you and your beloved.
This is exactly what i feel watching this Elysian Fields video.
A true and rare moment shot on a Brooklin roof by Vincent Moon for La blogotheque, so instense and quite disturbing.
You must have a go to the complete blogotheque post to watch Jennifer Charles singing Edith Piaf's "Jezebel", this is definitely unique.
Thank you Mister Moon.

As a child of those times, i thought i knew a lot about post punk, and then came Post punk junk.
Do i really need to say more...
Is the man working on the matter everyday of his life or what ?
Is he some kind of a monomaniac ? Love those monomaniacs.
You'll find there marvellous Talking Heads live songs, strange post punk band, the groove and the energy of these days.
Always helpfull, read that Vivien Goldman tribute and read him every update. Always joyfull.
