new weblove

for amazing stuff. well, just funny photos really. but much funnier than alot of other sites out there. i do hate that they write 'fail' on all the photos though...

epic fail on the s&d front

Missed every band I wanted to see.
Got lost in shoreditch.
Paid for two Indian meals - one being just popadums, which I didn't eat.
Saw only one band, the one band I didn't give a shit about.
Took lots of photos of ben being sick.
Accidentally walked to Hackney at 3 am.
Needless to say, I didn't pull a member of magistrates.
On the upside, Vegan chinese buffet eaten on the street.
Vodka frescatos from starbucks.
Street mug (got smashed)
Delish tesco salad and lovely gay crew in trafalgar square.
Other highlights of my little holiday to kingston include:
Mystery speed cake high
Free posh food
80p drinks in cheapskates
'sampling' bens wares when stuck outside the building
feeling like a zombie in laaandaaan taaaahn
waking up just in time for dinner
trying to sleep with the birds singing
more tales to come.... wierd times
surreal but good, hopefully I'll get accepted for september.
Sorry about the lack of photoooss

Stag and Dagger

I'm getting stupidly excited about Stag and Dagger..
The site describes it as:

STAG & DAGGER, the first one-ticket-gives-access-to-all music event to launch across London's East End in May 2008 is excited to announce its return in 2009 - bringing with it a bigger line up, more bands and DJs, more venues, and two additional national dates, this time taking the festival on the road to LEEDS and GLASGOW.

Run by VICE, presented by FIRETRAP, sponsored by Gaymers, and with acts such as:

Cold War Kids
Filthy Dukes
The Mae Shi
We Have Band
(...and jack penate...)

And DJ sets by magistrates and Moshi Moshi.

Now as you may or may not know, I bum pretty much every band and artist who has ever come out of Moshi Moshi, ESPECIALLY the almighty slow club.

And the fact that for a bargainous £18 I can have an entire day of music in various venues all over Shoreditch, in a kind of intimate gig-meets-festival format.. Well, that's just diddly.

Plus, I'm planning to make a play for a member of Magistrates...

Yeah, damn straight. Yum.

- click to enlarge -
As my buffday is approaching I thought I'd make a wishlist. Of course I've already provided my mother with a much lengthier version including links to products and websites I like. Sorted.
The Best Bits:
  • Betsey Johnson Bag - I bum everything she makes
  • Beauty Without Cruelty cosmetics - Nuff said really
  • Russell Kane - The most beautiful man in the world
  • TaraStarlet clothing - I bum everything on this site

You'll be hearing plenty more about the lovely Russell Kane, I assure you. I stalk him a little bit.

Late onto the wagon

but seriously... Stumbleupon is pretty much the best thing EVER.

I've found so much cool shit.

My favorite things so far are this picture:

and a youtube video of an old VHS i used to have as a child - it's so 80's it kills, and the outfits are actually uber-cool.
Barbie and the Rockers - Out of this World!

I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to kidnap my old family VHS player for myself. It's a matter of time before they're retro kitsch, plus I can actually watch all the videos I find for 50p in charity shops that I just can't turn down.

I can't decide who I'm more in love with.
Audrey Kitching or Raquel Reed?
It's a toughie...

Maybe it's a simple choice of pink vs turquise?

Speaking of bands who should be famous by now..


I literally cannot praise this band enough. They're playing in London just before my birthday, and I swear to god I don't see any possibility that they might not be massive by summer. If I had my way they'd be this year's MGMT.

i basically just bum everyone on moshimoshi atm.

EDIT: for some reason blogger has a massive issue with me posting youtube videos, so the link to the vid is

Speaking of the Springsteen..

White trash chic anyone?
That's right, despite evrery individual garment being a bit tragic, this somehow look s right all together. Maybe it's down to this man being quite handsome.
