lots of things happening lately and soon i might share something big, but in the meantime, can i just say how fucking much i love having a musical twin in london? my colleague ian is from the united kingdom and whenever he comes over for a show he tends to bring me prezzies… and this last weekend in dc was no different.
ian and i share a love for all things siouxsie and he brought me the 12″ vinyl of la sioux’s recent into a swan – with two mixes unreleased on cd. can you say i geeked out at the prospect of new siouxsie?
there was just one challenge tho’ – i haven’t had a turn table for a while (having got rid of much of my vinyl collection years ago).
::sigh – what the fuck to do?::
well, the obvious answer is to go and be a good american (i was in dc at the time, afterall) and spend valuable money on a vinyl-to-mp3 converter turntable.
(uploading prince & the revolutions ‘love or money – extended version’)
yes, my friends, i’m completely enraptured by old 12″ extended versions by prince, kate bush, siouxsie and more (for example, the divine jill jones rarity – ‘bald man’; my theme song).
so i’m completely giddy happy listening to rare tracks that i haven’t heard in years.
rushed home from dc just in time to see the sublime johnette napolitano play the entry in minneapolis. makes me happy.
(sorry johnette, i know you hate it when people take your pic, and you want us all “in the moment”, but it was such a great moment, i couldn’t resist taking a souvenir)

last night cb came over to watch heroes and i entertained him a bit by showing him an instructional dvd on how to give a guy a brazillian wax. go here to read the salicious details (he sum’s it up better than i could).
