Dita Von Teese Remix – (Sebastien Tellier) – featuring AAArmstrong

By | September 1st, 2018|music|

My thoughts on the new Dita Von Teese Remix EP, so far is that it is very sexy . I am sure that was the desired effect! And they have done it beautifully :-) The original album was called Dita Von Teese, and was produced by Sebastien Tellier. Although I really respect a lot of [...]

Gretta Ray – Corner Hotel Richmond

Gretta Ray is amazing with a capital G. I admit, I have loved pretty much everything that she has put out so far. From 'Long Distance' to 'Towers' to 'Time', she has spoken the contents of my heart more eloquently than I ever could. Is it something about the younger generations? They are more emotionally [...]

Lulu Cafe and Gallery is a lovely place to meet with friends on a lovely winter evening. Three glasses of Tempranillo and a delicious meal marinated chicken Maryland later and it is with a certain spring in my step that I meet the 9:07 train to Keon Park. Words are what have been missing in [...]

There was something so nice about walking along some unfamiliar streets in my neighbourhood this morning. It felt oddly intimate to see the peace flags and other decorations on the street frontage and think about the rich smell of ground coffee beans inside and a family rushing to get ready for their commitments in the [...]

sunny winter mornings in Collingwood

By | July 14th, 2018|art, daily life, music, weather|

It is the most stunning winter day. I love the weekend. Doodling around with a possible new venture, nursing a hangover, walking in the sunshine, listening to happy SKA music, chatting to friends.
