if you wanna sing out, sing out...if you wanna be free, be free

....cos there's a million ways to be, you know that there are.....

i was reminded (if i even needed reminding) of the brilliance of Hal Ashby's unconventional love story Harold + Maude when i went to see it at the NFT last friday and after the movie was screened Texan-born, Essex-raised Lightspeed Champion (previously of Test Icicles) performed the soundtrack (by Cat Stevens). sadly i wasn't able to hang around late enough to listen but i'm sure it was fabulous.

perfect movie - the ability to make me crack up laughing one minute and bring a tear to the eye the next - perfect antidote to the working week. tho i'm secretly relieved every time that the "love scene" remained on the cutting room floor (nothing against cougars, but i'm obviously still a little prudish...)


recently attended the Alcoholic Architecture event put together by those mad scientists at Bompas + Parr....definitely on a par with last year's jelly banquet...and inhaling gin through an industrial sized humidifier is definitely the best way to imbibe. standing in a gin-cloud-filled room with several other giggly people all dressed in white (custody) suites....giggling and inhaling madly....hilarious...and delicious....

bumped into lovely Estonian (via Brooklyn) lady Kristiana in Union Square on my recent trip to NYC and bought one of her prints..
check out her website...and buy her work at Etsy....
