Courtney’s Diaries

I bought Dirty Blonde, The Diaries of Courtney Love, on Saturday. It seems like it got an early release in Canada, it is supposed to come out in the US on the 31st.

At first, I was a bit disappointed because it is not very kiss-and-tell but then Courtney’s story drew me in: angry, eager, tragic, sad and on the other hand, for short periods, very sparkling. Like an emotional roller coaster ride.

Anyway, here is one of my favourite parts, an e-mail exchange between Courtney and Lindsay Lohan. I think I could get celebrity email addicted.

(VF = Vanity Fair. A 1992 article in Vanity Fair entitled “Strange Love”, in which it was alleged that Courtney had continued using heroin in the early stages of pregnancy. As a result, Child Welfare Services briefly investigated the Cobains’ fitness as parents, removing Frances Bean from their custody for a short period. Love claims to this day that she was misquoted, saying she had told author Lynn Hirschberg that she had stopped using it once she learned she was pregnant. (source))

Dirty Blonde

I can’t wait to get my hands on Courtney Love’s Diary. According to amazon.com it is scheduled for October 31. This is going to be my new bedtime reading.

For all things Courtney, be sure to check moonwashedrose.com. They have news on her next album, which is produced by Linda Perry and should be out before the end of the year. First single is “Letter To God” with a video to be shot by Brett Ratner. Of course, we all know him for his work on the Mariah videos Heartbreaker, It’s Like That and We Belong Together (amongst others).

For The Love

For The LoveLove Saves The Day. Oliver hat das Buch Viola geschenkt. Viola hat es mir geschenkt. Wir sagen manchmal: die Bibel. Sie hat einiges ausgelöst.

Meine Aaron-Carl Begeisterung hat 2003 mit dem House-Hit Homoerotic angefangen. Ich liebe sein persönlichen Texte, und selbst wenn sie von Revenge und Hate handeln (Ex-Boyfriend (Revenge Is Sweet) oder Hateful) kommt der Humor und die Hingabe zum Vorschein. House, Deep House, R&B, Ghetto Tech at it’s best.
Sein neues Album, Detrevolution, ist vor ein paar Tagen erschienen. Besonders gerne mag ich Satisfy U, Just Like, Hateful, My Stranger, Brokedown Blues, Liberation (Free), Friday Night Fire, das ganze Album!
Sein wunderbares blog, The Revelations of Aaron-Carl kann ich nicht genug loben.

Pirahnahead ist Teil der Moodyman Band und Host etlicher Musiknächte in Detroit (Wednesdays at Fifth Avenue, einer der Gründe, warum Ausgehen in Detroit so viel Spaß macht). Er glänzt in Gesang-Arrangements wie zum Beispiel in “UR” (auf Mahogani) und in der Zusammenarbeit mit der ebenso fantastischen Sängerin Diviniti. Beide veröffentlichen auf Women on Wax, so den Hit: Love Will Stay.

Viola und Georg waren im August zu Besuch in Detroit und haben Aaron-Carl und Pirahnahead kennengelernt, waren sehr, sehr, sehr begeistert von Ihren DJ Sets und stark beeinflusst von der Bibel, Love Saves The Day.
Wieder in Deutschland, hat sich Viola entschlossen, die beiden am Freitag, den 18.11. nach Köln und Samstag, den 19.11. nach Frankfurt einzuladen. Georg und ich waren sofort dabei.

Also, Termine vormerken, reinhypen, Freunde einladen, herzlich willkommen!

Non profit. For the love.
Strictly for the love. For the love of house.
Bring your ass!
