Autumn Resurrection.

Salut encore mes amis!

August and September flew by in a flurry of trying-to-be-employed-but-not-succeeding-to-be-employed, and here we are already, in October. I have a couple of lovely posts lined up for you, including a Rainbow Cake Tutorial, so stay tuned for that!

Me and Daddy Dearest

Here's a picture of my father and I (taken by my dear friend David Elbaz of GamraProductions) at Letchworth Station after a day of recording for my Dad's latest musical project. This is going to be a post in which I update you on the various musical endeavours with which I've been involved in the recent months. My Dad's old band, The Perfect Disaster (facebook and wikipedia) have somewhat reformed in order to record some new music. It's all on the horizon as we've been busy mixing and recording and doing technological magic on it, but if you can't wait here's a sneak peak of some of the new material.



So there's that. In addition to collaborating with mon père, I sing backing vocals for Robin Grey, a wonderful man who writes beautiful nu-folk tunes. I am very lucky to get to sing with him and other incredible musicians such as Basia Bartz and Caitlin Roberts who also play in Robin's band. I am aware that I am using many superlatives, and may be approaching 'gushiness' (a word I may have just invented...) Nevertheless, if you want to know what we sound like when we play together, watch this video:


Or listen to this:


Well, that's what I've been up to. I'll be posting some outfits soon, but until then, forgive me for plugging music I've been involved with! I am very excited about these projects and I want you guys to be excited too! (That's an order!) Until next time, here's a "cheeky" shot of Robin in the Abbot Street Studio recording some vocals for the new album. You should like us on facebook to see when we're playing shows, although I'll undoubtedly remind you!

Adios! Stay tuned like I said, for the RAINBOW CAKE TUTORIAL, and to find out my AUTUMN GOALS FOR 2012!

Gigging!

Well well well!

Just got back from seeing Reel Big Fish with Kim and Tash, and their siblings! I can safely say it was the best gig i have ever been to. the atmostphere was incredible, I was in the mosh pit for a while, and then someone whacked my rook piercing, and it started to bleed, so I went further back. (Yeah I am a sissy...) to be honest, the whole gig was a huge great big skanking session. If you don't know what skanking is, either go to a Ska gig, or look here!!! Unfortunately there was a huge man who decided to take his shirt off and sweat on everyone, but apart from that it was absolutely mind bogglingly incredible!!! Of course there were some Kodak moments:
and for everyone's benefit, a picture of Reel Big Fish:

They played lots of covers, such as Take On Me, and Sweet Child Of Mine. :))))) Anyway, i shall stop raving about them now! Other than that, there hasn't been much going on. I have been roped into being in a charity fashion show. I am going to be wearing an *ahem* lovely... baby pink prom dress. Hmm... That isn't really my style.

I have also learned a new term: "Theistic Evolutionist". To be a theistic evolutionist, you must believe in God, and also evolution at once. I presume that most religious people in the western world are theistic evolutionists?

that is enough for now. Herbal Tea.
