I am strangely unruined but think a quiet night and a few local beers might be a better idea tonight. Have fun, those of you that are going.

wow! just waiting for a bus home, can't believe it's going on for at least six more hours... every minute i was there was awesome, basically.

SO GOOD! Booka Shade I love you. MANDY I love you. 'Body Language' please be on loop in my head until further notice. Luciano I like you but please don't be so dry and techy.

I haven't slept yet. Instead when I got back I read the new Bret Easton Ellis novel. All of it, in one go. My mind feels a bit weird now.

what did you think of lunar park, lex? are you an ellis fan?

matt - THERE WERE LASERS IN ROOM ONE! possibly there have always been and i hadn't noticed.

green velvet was the best thing ever basically. esp, it has to be said, the 2nd half (after lex and cis went to see luciano) - flash, war on the saints, la la land and the lasers. i will say more about this tomorrow when i can make sense of it.

booka shade - live drumming which was actually good!

umm i need to sleep a lot more before i can say anything more, really.

I was too tired to do anything yesterday at all. I tried to go to Sainsbury's to get some food but was so hassled by the queues I decided to go home again. All of ten minute walk usually, but it took me half an hour on account of having to sit down in Barnards Park for fifteen minutes to recover my strength. After that, there was no way I was going to come out.

You alright now, man?

Andrew Farrell (afarrell), Sunday, 23 October 2005 19:02 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I slept for eleven hours last night and am feeling OK-ish.

RickyT (RickyT), Sunday, 23 October 2005 19:22 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

an unfortunate side-effect for me of not getting much sleep last night (and being a wuss) was that i fainted in the cinema this evening - colette pretty much had to carry me out after i told her that i intended to crawl to the back. oops.

also everyone should come along on nov 19th! i bought my ticket this afternoon.

toby (tsg20), Sunday, 23 October 2005 19:39 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

shit I am jealous of the fabric fun!

Ronan (Ronan), Sunday, 23 October 2005 19:47 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Did you YSI that mix, Toby? I am always filled with enthusiasm for the young people's dance music, though it doesn't always survive exposure to it.

Andrew Farrell (afarrell), Sunday, 23 October 2005 20:20 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

we are between isps at home (i'm posting now from a neighbour's weak wireless connection), but we should have an 8mbps connection on thursday, so i'll ysi then...

toby (tsg20), Sunday, 23 October 2005 20:23 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

there have always been lasers toby! and they've always been green. i love lasers.

i loved lunar park, i'm still trying to marshal my thoughts into coherence because it did my head in a bit - i think it's possibly my favourite ellis work (and i LOVE his stuff generally esp glamorama). the astonishingly narcissistic reality/fiction elision actually works really well though i think the most important element of the book might be the stephen king influence. oh and the last couple of pages are astonishing.

The Lex (The Lex), Monday, 24 October 2005 09:19 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

missed this, and alex smoke and guido schnieder in leeds the samwe night!

i bet something cmoes up on the 19th too....

ambrose (ambrose), Monday, 24 October 2005 11:46 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i thought lunar park was pretty good, much better than i'd expected. perhaps i should give glamorama another go (i've read all the others several times, but gave up on that really early on for some reason). lunar park definitely gives me hope that he'll carry on being "relevant".

back to the subject of fabric - how late did you guys stay? were you there when the free beer got handed out?

i haven't really got a great deal to add to what i said above, except that mandy were really, really good, although i think the only thing i recognised was trentemoller's "polar shift".

anyway, november the 19th, magda/richie/ricardo, everyone should come! i'm ysi-ing the hawtin/villalobos essential mix now, guess i'll put up a link in an hour or so...

here you go:

rofl at Pete Tong's intro to that mix. DJ Sneak = 'mr minimal from chicago' wtf? How can that man have been in the business for so long and still be so clueless?

Barnaby (Barnaby), Sunday, 30 October 2005 15:38 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

you mean DJ Sneak is not really a man?

Sociah T Azzahole (blueski), Monday, 31 October 2005 11:28 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

er... no he's not really minimal. Split hair I suppose.

Barnaby (Barnaby), Monday, 31 October 2005 12:36 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

hey, does anyone know if i can buy a student ticket for hawtin/ricky v over the net? do i just show my nus card on the door or what?

nude spoons, Thursday, 10 November 2005 18:23 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

dunno about that, but on the subject of dancing...

the lady and i are putting on a night on sat sep 26th at the bull in clerkenwell. it's called such great heights and will involve all sorts of fun aviation-related things as well as much dancing to unavoidable leg-shakers of this ilk:

Gwen Stefani ELO Public Image Ltd Supremes Franz Ferdinand Sonics Saint Etienne Rolling Stones Fleetwood Mac Basement Jaxx David Bowie New Order Tom Vek Pulp Rachel Stevens LCD Soundsystem Roxy Music Arcade Fire Kraftwerk Rakes Postal Service A Certain Ratio Annie

So do please come. It's only £1.99 to get in, and you'll get a polystyrene aeroplane for your trouble...(we bought *way* too many)

< /plug>

CharlieNo4 (Charlie), Thursday, 10 November 2005 18:42 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

you presumably mean *nov* 26th, charlie?

i don't think you can buy nus advance tickets for fabric, but presumably showing an nus card on the door does the job.

who's coming to hawtin/villalobos, anyway?

toby (tsg20), Thursday, 10 November 2005 19:02 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

me + others

eg Ed! apparently? Ed?

Gareth? i texted him but to no avail

ambrose (ambrose), Thursday, 10 November 2005 19:36 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

that link, is a link to a search on ilx. perhaps a moderator might want to remove it, in case it slows the world down.

terry lennox. (gareth), Thursday, 10 November 2005 19:53 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

aren't any mods going to do something about this????

terry lennox. (gareth), Thursday, 10 November 2005 19:54 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

CharlieNo4 (Charlie), Thursday, 10 November 2005 21:03 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i thought i txted, about koenig cylinders?

i am worried i have been sending txts intended for other people, to you...again.

did i send a txt on friday night about not being able to get drugs or something? that was for O, i cant work out if she is ignoring me, or it is that i sent the message to you

terry lennox. (gareth), Thursday, 10 November 2005 21:08 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Dude, you sent that message to me.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Thursday, 10 November 2005 21:57 (thirteen years ago) Permalink


i have no idea what im sending to who, anymore. perhaps it doesnt really matter

fabric on 16th dec looks amazing.. 10 days after my birthday

Ooh, that is my birthday. My 30th. I'm still looking for a plan. What's happening at fabric?

Gravel Puzzleworth (Gregory Henry), Friday, 11 November 2005 01:54 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i don't see that the 16th is very exciting, really...

M.A.N.D.Y., Booka Shade, Guido Schneider, Unit 4 and more at Superfreq, The End Saturday 12/11.

This kinda tempts me even more than Garnier and co at the End. I need to make up my mind properly and also feel better but MANDY is kind of on my hitlist for way too long now.

toby (tsg20), Friday, 18 November 2005 11:08 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

i'm all fabricked out i'm afraid :(

also, house party in my hood means even cheaper hedonism a short walk away.

I am!

RickyT (RickyT), Friday, 18 November 2005 13:17 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

got to pick up my ticket at the venue somehow. does that mean joining the hideously long guestlist queue?

ambrose (ambrose), Friday, 18 November 2005 14:07 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

no! well, i've only done it once, which was for the birthday thing, and i walked up to the front of the queues at about 0050 and asked which queue was for ticket holders, and they pointed out a v short queue, and 5 mins later i was in. make sure you have the printout of the booking, though. you have to be there by 0100, i think.

i'm going to my best friend's birthday dinner party first, so i will probably turn up quite drunk sometime between twelve and one. guess i'll see whoever's there in the usual place (left hand side if facing stage)? texting works ok in the main room, anyway.

toby (tsg20), Friday, 18 November 2005 17:50 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

the usual place is the left of the stage?!!

crazy times.

thanks for the printing tip, i would have never have done that. in fact, i may never do it as i dont have a printer now ive left work :(

ill work somethign out. i have attempted to contact you via Lex with my phone number. whats rickyt doing?
