The One And Only

March 19th, 2019 Comments off

The DJ is the one doing the selection and any decent DJ can do that.

Then there are brilliant ones and they over-shine everybody, the selection and the technique. Raw experience and immense talent is what it takes.

And there is a DJ that goes by the name of DJ Storm. And she is more than qualified to be called just that: a DJ.

Exhale. Breath. Relax. Live.

Would have if I could have.

1992 In Full Force!

March 15th, 2019 Comments off

I never saw this day coming (that may not be entirely true…). Reminiscence is a dangerous endeavor.

– Why? The year 1992* is musically an extremely diverse year.

– What do you mean? – All musical years’ are diverse, but if you happen to listen there will be a limited number of year’s that are special to you – in the event that you where to be forced to choose. According to me that’s reminiscence… it would seem to mostly depend on when or where where you born.

– Why is time important?

– I’m not entirely sure, but I think it has to do with direct experience and lack there-of… (basically you are young).

And most people tend to remember their youth as the best period in their lives (it obviously doesn’t apply to me ; ) ) and since all are born a specific year there will be years’ that are more significant than others.

* As always, “- Well, why not 1990-1995 or how can you possibly ignore 1998?” The short answer is, I can’t.”

Below are eleven albums released in 1992 (that are included in my private collection):

Eric B. & Rakim – Don’t Sweat The Technique
Jodeci – Forever My Lady
Altern 8 – Full On ·· Mask Hysteria
D-Influence – Good 4 We
Brand Nubian – In God We Trust
Mr Fingers – Introduction
Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth – Mecca And The Soul Brother
Ten City – No House Big Enough
Liquid – Sweet Harmony
The Orb – U.F.Orb
Mary J. Blige – What’s The 411?

And there are so many more released in 1992. It is an incredibly year (too me).

– Can I please go home now?

Uncle Dugs that would be it.

“May” Someone Please Stop This Catastrophe?

March 3rd, 2019 Comments off

Br-e-wut? Please stop this madness or declare London a sovereign state (and full EU member) right now!

The current date is 3rd of March 2019. You do realise that the 29th is exactly 26 days from now, which is even less than 28 days later?

DIEU ET MON DROIT

Please, please stop this catastrophe from happening. It is nothing but a complete disaster in the making.

This is not what you want, no one in their right mind wants this, it’s just wrong…

Please see: Claim Your Own State?

A Way Out?

March 2nd, 2019 Comments off

An open door that is normally closed at all times, double exit signs and a very dark entrance.

All situated at the bottom of a flight of stairs. It has got to be something right or maybe it is not?

Regardless you still need to pay for the fair, you always need to pay the ferry man.

This Is Not Where We Live

March 1st, 2019 Comments off

That line used to be drawn somewhere in the Old city in the fair city of Stockholm – the so-called Venice of the North.

Me and my lost army are located on the other side to the South…

That would be: Sudermania (in Latin) or Södermanland that is where we dwell. You can trust me on that.

La Résistance I – C’est L’Orignacal

February 22nd, 2019 Comments off

It is all about “les mots” and yes, “Orignacal” is an actual French wording – the complexity of all thousands spoken languages in the World is… intimidating.

Orgin||ac o. -al (pl. -aux) m = original III, 2.

What more can I say? Actually… something more from the UK; LBNHRX to be exact (best kept secret).

Hmm, there’s a reference already written right here (and just about right now I have to admit that I have not written about LBNHRX…) and that in itself is nothing but a mystery.

It may be connected to “reality” and the things that I’m forced to deal with on a daily basis. The so-called “life”.

Yet, this is still the exact moment where the art(s) take command. When contemporary music manifests itself. When it imposes itself upon (My) reality again.

It is: when/then the; ‘buts’, ‘ifs’, and ‘then’s’ ceases to exist.

– Is it really that good? With-out-a-doubt. It is in fact exactly that good.
– Why is that? That would be/is almost four (4) decades of intense listening.

– Will it ever stop? The simple answer is: No, it will never stop and why would ever you want it to? – In all honesty why would you ever pose that question? In what context?

A Very Personal Reference

February 21st, 2019 Comments off

It is all about the last item in the list on the board.

It is not the dish itself that is missed in a absolute and profound way every single day.

I suppose that is what experience really entails, in the end.

Is that a uniquely French reference? Yes, it is uniquely French.

Looking For The Correct Fountain

January 30th, 2019 Comments off

Cactus 1931? I’ve never seen it before.

The Paris Colonial Exhibition (or “Exposition coloniale internationale”, International Colonial Exhibition) was a six-month colonial exhibition held in Paris, France in 1931 that attempted to display the diverse cultures and immense resources of France’s colonial possessions.

“Le Cactus”, architects André Granet and Roger-Henri Expert*.

My grandmother (allegedly) hid in a fountain in central Paris in the late 1920’s, fleeing both the police and avoiding a riot.

I’ll need to investigate the whole thing, but I have absolutely no reason to distrust the original tale.

At the time she was an Au-pair in Paris – and “she” would be my dear Grandmother born in 1911 – and that I know for a fact.

Mm, it is of some importance, that she did turn 101 years’ experienced (never ever ask/tell a women’s age…). It is and will remain indescribable blessings and eternal love!

* Is that by any chance the coolest family name ever? I mean, honestly is your last name: “Expert”? That is just…, I cannot breath right now (I… again I’ve never seen/noticed that before ever.).
