The Number One Songs In Heaven: Boogie Friday

Wow. Way back then a friend made me a tape with a load of dancey/housey music on - it was all entirely new to me and I loved it. But somewhere, someday, I lost the tape. I never really went out to clubs or anything, and had no idea where any of this music had come from. Ever since I’ve wished I still had the tracklisting. Or could at least remember some names.

A few years ago I realised that Marshall Jefferson’s ‘Move Your Body’ was one of the tracks. And now I’ve found one more! I’m pretty sure ‘All and All’ was on that tape, and hearing it again is making hairs stand up on end.

Thanks so much Lee! One day maybe I’ll stumble across some of the other tracks…

Said the Gramophone: hustings!

Ooh, I’m loving that Kate Maki - beautiful and I do want to just stick it on repeat all evening.

That means *something* like:

Japanese eating things here!

(Although I’m sure there’s a slightly more elegant translation :) )

Re the Gosh! comics interview… “Awesome”? I thought it was such a waste of an opportunity. Dumb questions put to someone who didn’t seem to have much to say.

Infringing Disney and toon murals near Brick Lane, London on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

I’ve noticed that hospitals and kids’ nurseries and things often paint their own versions of Disney characters on the wall, to jolly the place up a bit. I bet we’d never see Disney go after them for infringment.
