Congratulations go out to my big sister Rebecca, who is getting married to her long time boyfriend Chris, who asked her to marry him last week. Don’t stress about Mum and Dad not getting too excited about it, its just the way they are! The immediately families reactions for Rozie and I getting married were pretty low key as well. I remember Rozie’s Mum’s reaction was “That’s nice” and she continued to finish washing the dishes.

When Rebecca and Chris told my parents that they were getting married, Dad’s first reaction was “So Chris, are you going to change the power points in your house from single to double points?”. Admittedly my first reaction when Mum told me was “Yeah, right.” So I shouldn’t talk!

I guess its just a family thing… 😆

Blog update in progress

Yeah, so blah blah blah, I’m in the process of upgrading my blog. So I’ve I’m stuck with this ugly default installed this page layout from Alex King’s site. I’ll be slowly tweaking things over the next few days to something that resembled how things were before, or perhaps something completely new. I don’t mind this new scheme as the colours are quite similiar to my old PSG based blog. I’m pretty sure that the sushi at the top of the screen will have to go though.

Yahoo! RSS beta

My Yahoo! RSS

Things are on the up and up for RSS this year. Yahoo! have launched an RSS feature in their My Yahoo! homepage offering. Looks like a good way of getting a bunch of RSS feeds for the masses (looks like there is a maximum feed limited for 25 feeds at the moment). And it looks like it supports pinging, so it knows when your blog is updated. For a good run down on this, I’d highly recommend checking out Jeremy Zawodny’s blog entry on the subject.

Liquid Room to shut down

Pump Up the Jam Cover

Pump up the jam
Pump it up
While your feet are stompin’
And the jam is pumpin’
Look at here the crowd is jumpin’

Pump it up a little more
Get the party going on the dance floor
Seek us that’s where the party’s at
And you’ll find out if you’re too bad

I don’t want a place to stay
Get your booty on the floor tonight
Make my day
I don’t want a place to stay
Get your booty on the floor tonight
Make my day

Make my day
Make my day
Make my day
Make my day

Aphex Twin and Luke Vibert

Crowd is pumpingI Love AcidMore crowds

I went with Adam, Nadia and Rozie to see Aphex Twin and Luke Vibert on Tuesday night at the Metro. Personally I loved it. It was a crazy mix of acid house (thanks to Vibert) and all the fun stuff from early 90’s rave music; acid techno, breakbeat, hardcore/gabber and drum ‘n’ bass. Absolutely heaps of 303 noises going on for most of the night. I haven’t heard that acid noises at a party in such a long time. I think for the most part though, big Aphex fans were disappointed the music was too “dancy” and didn’t deliver what he is known for, experimental music. A big thumbs up for me though, as it sounded as though Aphex and Vibert were delivering a custom set for a party, not some sort of noodly experimental electronics music wankfest. Good on them! Perhaps I feel this way as I’m not too attached or sentimental about RDJ, so I was going to be more or less happy with what he delivered.


Rocking the crowdStrap On DancersRock Star PeachesPeaches gets tied up

Last night I caught Peaches at the Hyde Park Barracks. A great show. Perhaps not a great as last time, but that could have been that last time around, I’d never heard of her and didn’t know what to expect. She was so out of leftfield. So much attitude, that I didn’t know what hit me. I still find it amazing that a girl and a drum machine (mostly) can pull off such an awesome show.
