Welcome to two thousand and freakin’ ten!

It snowed, a lot.

I have spent the last few weeks writing some BRAND NEW MATERIAL which you will be able to hear samples of if you come to either my gig at Blang on 8th February or to…

The Party Of The Decade on Friday 19th February, I’ll be playing alongside some of my favourite people, drinking and dancing till dawn.

Amazing New Zealand based artist, Jimmy Misanthrope has done a picture of me! It is in a similar style to his webcomic Agents of the Endtimes, which I follow avidly each week. Here is the picture on his deviant art page

I’ve caught a lot of cool stuff online too, mostly at Zombiehamster (especially the wonderful Mad Monster Party film) and over at  Fuck Yeah Horror where there’s an ace Spotify playlist to accompany their top 10 list.

Off to Brighton this weekend for Midwinter Picnic 2 – can’t wait, it’s gonna be an awesome day filled with yummy cake, great music, and good times. I’m running the raffle!

Here’s to the Future.

Can You Stay Up For The Weekend?

HELLLLLOOOOOOOOO everyone!

Officially just over halfway through the two-week birthday extravaganza and I’m not flagging at all (although I have drunk my weight in alcohol and eaten more food than they have in Costcutter)

So far, I have:

  • enjoyed a luscious Thanksgiving meal cooked by Hannah and Aubrey
  • DJed at BBA for the quiet and non-dancing crowd at the Marie Lloyd Bar (although we danced enough for everyone!)
  • written new crush lists
  • seen some performance art in a warehouse in Stoke Newington
  • chatted up beautiful artists
  • had Advent Tea and played with my nieces
  • watched Milk and A Streetcar Named Desire
  • hidden from huge storms and eaten pizza
  • gone to Biddles with all of my Hackney family
  • worn Sandi’s dress as a top
  • learned about measuring social impact
  • attended my first ever Beer Festival (and tried some Welsh perry)
  • chatted on the phone to Nathan in India
  • cried into my vodka and watched Akira the ultimate collection

TONIGHT ALL THE COOL KIDS ARE GOING TO THIS

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

As it turns out, I’ve completely backed up on myself with my blogging. So I’ve decided to skip through the last week and a half or so with a quick summary…

On Saturday 14th November I moved home, I saw Carter USM (who were absolutely awesome, can’t wait to see some of Jim Bob’s upcoming solo stuff), I stormed the stage during the Hoodrats’ set at the afterparty – like their own personal Bez, I found my way back to East London through a storm at 5am…

On 15th woke to find I had already (in less than 24 hours) earned a ‘partygirl’ label by my new flatmates and received an amazing gift of groceries from my gorgeous sister (she knows me so well!)…

A lovely dinner with Hannah and Aubrey on 17th, helped us all compile our latest crush lists…

I met with fantastic and inspiring artist Melanie in Hackney Wick on 19th, who taught me about my addiction to an Intermittent Reward Schedule as well as gave me lots of ideas for future work…

Had an amazing time in Brighton playing at the gorgeous West Hill Hall in a huge storm, opening for Chris T-T who was supported by The Indelicates on 21st November…

Sunday 22nd November (one of the best hangovers ever) – woke up in Brighton, went for lush fry-up with 2/4 hoodrats, went to conceptual exhibition by Beatabet Collective at the Phoenix Gallery, got train to London, was cooked a massive gorgeous roast dinner. Slept well…

On 25th November, I saw the Filthy Dukes album launch gig (mindblowing how good they are, hot too, really know how to put on a show, got lovely fans as well) and hung out with lovely Emily at The Flowerpot…

Today is Thanksgiving, I am celebrating with my gorgeous theme-loving American friend and her sexy culinarily-gifted flatmate…

As it is my birthday soon and because I think I’m much more important than I really am, my friends and I are celebrating with 2 weeks of parties, seeing performances, gigs, AtD’s boat party, shopping, and more! The two-week mayhem kicks off with my guest DJ spot at the BBA Thanksgiving Party at the Marie Lloyd Bar tomorrow night, free entry – come along, dance, sing and say hello.

BBA Halloween Party – oooooooh!
