you don’t tell on me I won’t tell on you



lucky you! its another music post! yay yay yay! i couldnt really figure out what the specifics of what this blog were going to be so thought id post a track that i think kinda somes things up nicely.

now i have always loved dragonette but iv only ever had one track, and it was a toxic avenger remix. iv have listened to "take it like a man" so many times and in so many different situations. i think the makings of a really great song are if the lyrics can take on different meanings at different times. if the lyrics can be a positive and negative/ happy and sad that is really impressive.

this is another remix but it has proven itself already as a dragonette classic. i didnt know who the toxic avenger was for a long time, now i know very well, but i hope button bashers prove themselves too, they have a good name.

so how did this song fall into my lap? well it was my brother, Tim, found it. we are currently working on a new double-adapter set for when we open for cyberpunkers. very excited about that, but more about it later. he found a lot of great stuff, super heavy mostly - its a cyberpunkers gig after all, but he sneaked this little gem into the initial play list for me. so that a nice little story.

i think its another late night bedroom track. i think thats because im in my bedroom late at night a a lot. go figure. thats a really good place to be though. i like it. late night is when really cool stuff happens and your bedroom is really comfortable so of course that is where all the best stuff is going to happen. watching movies. chatting online. reading blogs. planning train trips. music in headphones. making out. cuddling. sleeping.

iv done some of those today.some i wish i had done. but lets do the last one.

past : present



welcome to this the first post of my blog. i used to blog a lot
when i was younger and i guess i kinda missed it. i was inspired to
start one after seeing that someone i knew had started one. hey
face duster.cool name by the way.

i was struggling to decide what to do with this blog. i felt that it
needed a specific intention. dating an older woman? no. displaying
the latest of my work? no. keeping a diary for everyone to read? no.
listing my favorite music? no. making funny jokes? no.

so what? fuck it. lets do them all. i don't promise that every post will deal
with all of these issues but it will always deal with at least one of them.
well maybe not the dating an older woman one...

i remember that way back in Benrik my first ever post was about my
favorite band, Bloc party. so i think its appropriate that we start with
something new. Tenderoni is the first single off Bloc Party's front man,
Kele Okereke, solo album - The Boxer (releasing june 21st 2010)

just as i was filled with excitement about listening to Silent Alarm i'm
am filled with excitement of what this album will have to offer. Kele
has changed a lot and so have i. well he got buff, i didnt but lets just
pretend that i put some weight on?

change happens so fast. things completely transform themselves in a
matter of moments. attached. single. happy. sad. young. old. hungry.

and while change can be bad it is more often good. let go. fuck. i
dont have all the time in the world. so i have resolved to leave
the past where it belongs and always look to the present, not
the future. im happy in the present.

just as i am sure Kele is.

enjoy the track, i think its a good late night bedroom one.
