Hey look at this! RUBY MAGAZINE. Woah. I got some badges at work this week. One is a sort of fat square, with a neon bible on it, and the other is the name of the band, in typewriter letters. I'm afraid to wear either of em. I'm also afraid of listening to the album. But late on a Sunday evening is kind of perfect. I drank too many beers at the Vice party last night. They were pretty lucky that DATAROCK were there to liven things up with some chest-hair sleaze pop. No cherry beer or nothin.

New Young Pony Club were supposed to play here on Saturday but they big fat didn't show up. The venue was this big huge concrete structure that used to be an electrical plant. It's the new Tresor venue, practically identical to Berghain, except the lights were on really bright, there were ice sculptures and flames coming out of the walls, and a mini basketball court. But no NYPC.

If you like dancing to hot chip, the gossip, planningtorock and kate bush, and feeling a bit sad that all the hot boys dancing around you are gay, then NBI on a Wednesday night is just for you! It's the Berlin Hilton night & this past Wednesday Hanayo played. Yeh, she nearly fell through the wall.

This is kind of funny:

Datarock - Computer Camp Love

ps - here is what i wrote the first time i saw Datarock, last May. This weekend they played in Berlin twice.

It's Like a Picture of a Loved One in Disguise

My new shoes. They are so the best.

The Shins put up the whole of "Wincing the Night Away" for listenin'!

Hey, I'm looking to finally get my own drum kit, so if you are in berlin and are selling a drum kit, please let me know! I just need something that is good enough to practise on, for the moment.

Shit Disco + Lo Fi Fnk last week = so good. Plus, I was standing beside a boy who had an "aer lingus" badge on his jacket. It was the night the "orkan" was supposed to blast us all away and even though I had sleepy eyes and it was pretty cold, the Maria is only around the corner from me and it was actually nice enough outside that i could ride out ON MY BIKE!

Seriously can't wait to see them again.

(Dr Pong was deadly on Friday night.)

This Thursday, 28 Costumes at Magnet!

Before I Put Another Notch in My Lipstick Case...


The door bitches got me again. So I missed Peter Bjorn and John last week. It was all sold out, there was a MASSIVE crowd outside, only about 3 people in that crowd had tickets. Maaaaan. I didn't know the guestlist closed at 9pm and there was really no way to get in at the insanely late hour of our arrival of 9.25pm.


And nobody is going to not let me in. I have a real ticket and everything.

Work this week was very much orientated around the 'Fire. Printing out labels and then packing up promo copies. I even heard the album a few times. The promo copies are all watermarked and numbered for extra precaution against the music getting leaked onto the internet. It's so gorgeous, it's like listening to something that you're not sure is really there. At the beginning of December I was sitting in on a Wednesday morning meeting when their name came up...It has been really surreal to be behind the scenes, some of them anyway. This album is going to SHAKE THE WORLD LIKE A SNOW GLOBE.

Girl Talk Remixes Are Hot!

1. Peter Bjorn + John, "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off". Girl Talk Remix. I am a sucker for kettle drums.

2. Grizzly Bear, "The Knife" Girl Talk Remix. I sort of like this alot, but i would love it it more if he wasn't all "wamp wamp". It's priceless from about 2.12secs. "...we could have never thought of it and finally we can dance to our own music! Haha" Ed Droste, probably.

Beck - "Nausea"
Tokyo Police Club - "Nature of the Experiment"
the Church - "Under the Milky Way"

Wolf Like Me

Say say my playmate
wont you lay hands on me
mirror my maladie
transfer my tragedy

Got a curse i cannot lift
shines when the sunset shifts
when the moon is round and full
gotta bust that box gotta gut that fish

My mind's aflame

We could jet in a stolen car
but i bet we wouldnt get too far
before the transformation takes
and bloodlust tanks and
crave gets slaked

My mind has changed
my bodys frame but god i like it
my hearts aflame
my bodys strained but god i like it

My mind has changed
my bodys frame but god i like it
my hearts aflame
my bodys strained but god i like it

Charge me your day rate
ill turn you out in kind
when the moon is round and full
gonna teach you tricks that'll blow your mongrel mind
baby doll i recognize
you're a hideous thing inside
if ever there were a lucky kind it's

you you you you

I know its strange another way to get to know you
you'll never know unless we go so let me show you
i know its strange another way to get to know you
we've got till noon here comes the moon
so let it show you
show you now

Dream me oh dreamer
down to the floor
open my hands and let them
weave onto yours

Feel me, completer
down to my core
open my heart and let it
bleed onto yours

Feeding on fever
down on all fours
show you what all that
howl is for

Hey hey my playmate
let me lay waste to thee
burned down their hanging trees
it's hot here hot here hot here hot here

Got a curse we cannot lift
shines when the sunset shifts
there's a curse comes with a kiss
the bite that binds the gift that gives

now that we got gone for good
writhing under your riding hood
tell your gra'ma and your mama too
it's true true true true

we're howling forever
