Developing a soft spot for these speakers by Sherwood Forlee… and the fact that he shares my passion for minesweeper means they must be brilliant!

I want an antler chandelier. I know, it’s very ‘gone hunting’, but i want one. It would go well in the converted chapel I don’t own yet (and would need to convert), hanging somewhere above the breuer. Also, i’ve decided i’d like to go to a festival of some kind this year.



d.a.n.c.e.

What do you get when you mix electro, set design geniuses and a dance floor big enough to plow? idreamelectric heaven. Sadly i have only attended first one on the list (which, to be fair, kept me deliriously happy for months), but let’s set them as goals for 2009 – new years resolutions may as well be fun. let’s D.A.N.C.E…

Justice // Reading 2008
Daft Punk // Wireless 2007
Etienne De Crecy // Transmusicales 2007

Right… music first. I’m not sure what the Prodigy were thinking when they wrote their new single, but its awful. Really, really bad. I’m the most diplomatic person alive when it comes to music, but this is nothing short of painful. Edging waaay too near Pendulum territory. Prodigy, it’s not that i’m angry, i’m just disappointed.

Actually, i am pretty angry.

Secondly, no-one has ever warned me about this. Serious government failure here.

Finally, i’m upset because i can’t afford these or these, and these are just plain offensive.

That’s all.

£20… not sure on the quality of the speakers, but either way it’s gotta be totally worth it…

I’ll decide next week.

OK, so they can’t kiss, but can they do electro? Can they ever.

Arrived home from Reading Festival this afternoon, and am finding myself torn between the luxury of fresh food and socks, having lived on noodles and combating phenomenally fragrant portaloos for three days, and wanting to go right back to the beginning again. Photo roll here.

 

By far the highlight was the Justice set, producing some awesome beats and stunning stage design. It was such a satisfying performance, I didn’t quite know what to do with myself. Until I can embed the video, check out their set on the BBC site.

Other great acts included Santogold, Tenacious D (not a dedicated fan, but boy do they know how to put on a show), Crystal Castles, Dan le Sac vs. Scroobius Pip and Razmataz Lorry Excitement. Bring on 2009.
