Hanoians being awesome.

The politicians on the stage were all dressed in similar attire, they sweated, and none of them made sense. And they all spoke as if we were not particularly important to the results of the elections. It soon became clear that - for the speakers - we didn’t exist. We, the crowd, were the ghosts of history. We were the empty bodies on whose behalf the politicians and soldiers rule; we were not real. We could not communicate our desires save by the intensity of our cheering or hissing. We were shadows in the world of power; the mere spectators of phenomena, the victims of speeches We were meant only to listen, never to speak. We were not meant to feel or to think or argue or dissent. Assent was all we were good for. And our faces, which the night made masks of, finally found their true identity in the world of power; we were statues, rows and crow dings of sculpted bodies. We were bodies without urgencies. From the viewpoint of the stage, that is how we seemed.

Dear everyone,

I’m gonna take a short break from Doctor Who gifs and Harry Potter quotes, and also, I’m gonna ask for your attention, as I have to tell you a little story, it’ll only take a couple of minutes and I’ll try to make it as short as possible.

Everything sounds better like this.

Tom Waits (on Jim Wilson): “Wilson, he’s always playing with time. I heard a recording recently of crickets slowed way down. It sounds like a choir, it sounds like angel music. Something sparkling, celestial with full harmony and bass parts - you wouldn’t believe it. It’s like a sweeping chorus of heaven, and it’s just slowed down, they didn’t manipulate the tape at all. So I think when Wilson slows people down, it gives you a chance to watch them moving through space. And there’s something to be said for slowing down the world.”

Hello, so I’ve done a new DJ set, with a load of my favourite stuff at the moment, which as always covers a lot of ground musically, but is hopefully still grounded in some sort of thread of warmth and flow. Full tracklist below.

It is also this years RA poll time, if you have any favourite acts out there, particularly if they’re new guys, or any of the amazing producers out there who aren’t getting the recognition they deserve, then it can make all the difference for you put their name on…
