Above is a photo of a page from Place Space, the magazine featuring John Waters at home. So, of course, this is showing one of his many book piles.
And what can we see CLEARLY in the pile to the right? John Waters has a copy of Ausserirdische Zwitterwesen / Alien Hybrid Creatures, the book by die Professorin Michael Krebber.
Below is my personal re-visualisation of the book pile for your viewing pleasure.
I took a day trip to Stonehenge today. To get my mystical and spiritual fix. I guess it could have been some sort of cleansing, too.
Why was it build? How was it built? These are the questions the audio guide couldn’t answer. But people don’t know either. We don’t know.
Talks about “something secret and hidden”
Fields around Stonehenge
Crybaby is a Mariah treat from 2000 that I listened to on my way to the countryside today. I remembered the video and had to watch it the minute I came back to my place.
Taken from the double A sided single with Can’t Take That Away (Mariah’s Theme), Crybaby is not exactly one of her high charting hits. It’s got a classic video nonetheless and is a fan favourite.
The video is mostly a 1 to 1 (ist nicht vorbei) visualization of the lyrics and has a couple of Mariah diva moments.
“So it’s 5 am
And I still can’t sleep”
“Took some medicine
But it’s not working”
“Late at night like a little child
Wandering ’round alone
In my new friend’s home
On my tippy toes”
“Sipping Bailey’s Cream
By the stereo
Trying to find relief
On the radio”
It gets really dramatic after this point: There is lots of spillage and broken glass. Oreo’s are cracking on the floor, nail polish is dripping. Absolutely Crybaby. Watch it now.
You know I like to post visualisations of pandas. Below is a very special one, a Fiat Panda. Carmen Gheorghe put it on display at Ritter & Staiff, Frankfurt.
R & S has no back door, okay?
produzentin moved to a new place, still deep in Toronto’s Portuguese neighbourhood. More importantly, I’ve found this cute panda paper balloon. She be my new pet.
What be her name?
Earlier: A Moment
…und sie sagte zu sich selbst:
Du wirst dich nie irgendwo zuhause fühlen…
…and she said to herself:
You will never feel at home anywhere…
For Yan Yan (unrelated).
so, as requested, here is the panda visualisation of toyboat.
maybe we’re running into pandazentin weeks.
what do you think?
the boat that reached my shore was a toyboat
Here are my winter charts, but really, I am only listening to Tracey Thorn’s new album, Out Of The Woods (thanks bb). When I heard the opening song, I was quite shocked, thinking I was listening to Sinead O’Connor. That changed with the second song, A-Z, which is one of my favourites.
Although, she uses a lot of phrases (some of them (may be) worn out), it works for me.
You’ve been balanced on a knife
Will the city save your life
You’ve been waiting for so long
Just for somewhere to feel like home
Two more songs need to be singles: Grand Canyon and Raise The Roof. And there is a nice cover version of Arthur Russell’s Get Around To It.
Panda’s been balanced on a knife
I have included links to listen to the songs (#), a lot of them on myspace. Do not judge.
- Dennis Ferrer – The World As I See It – Defected – (#)
This is my favourite deep house album at the moment. Church Lady is the lead single for me. There are a couple of remixes that got released recently but the original is still the best.
- Deichkind – Remmi Demmi (Egoexpress Remix D) – Universal – (#)
I totally missed this one when it was released in Spring of 2006. It just didn’t make it to Canada. 70ties German Bürgerlichkeit mit Katja E. und Sauna und so. The cover looks a bit like an old Bernhard Willhelm collection. Video.
- Arnold Jarvis – If I Stay (Jus’ Dope Remix) – Kif – (#)
- Vernessa Mitchell – Higher (Silk’s Original Mix) – Silk
Viola recommended this one after she found it on a disc that Pirahnahead gave her. Extremely uplifting.
- Mr. White – You Rock Me / The Sun Can’t Compare – Alleviated Records – (#)
This one appears on so many DJ lists it is unbelievable. Double A side.
- Justus Köhncke – Overhead – Kompakt – (#)
- Gary Bardouille – Starting Over (Aaron’s Stripped Down Church Edit) – Soul Heaven – (#)
He seems to have a very fresh myspace profile with more gospel house songs.
- SUMO – Lovebeat (Karizma’s K2 Darq Dub) ft. Clarisse Muvemba – Heya Hifi – (#)
- Anane – Walking On Thin Ice (Masters At Work Dub) – Vega – (#)
I like the dub version of Yoko Ono’s hit best. So raw.
- Herb LF – Jam 2 Da Mother / Miles (Soulphiction Remix) – Farside – (#)
- Kompis – In Somebody’s Spot (Ralph Myerz Space Shuttle Shuffle Mix) – Sunday Best – (#)
- Alexkid ft. Liset Alea – Nightshade (Rodriguez Junior Mix) – F Communications – (#)
- Ianeq – The Focaccia Pretext – Mental Groove – (#)
Das geht so ab. funky.

Sabs said You’re All Over My Head has the sound of a lesbian disco in Paris.
