The DJ’s on the box again…

So if you’ve got nothing to do (or you do have something to do, but want something waaay better) you can hear me djing down at Goodbar on Oxford St in Darlinghurst this Friday night for the opening night of Floppy Disko. I’ll be dropping a stack of hip house for about an hour and a half (that’s three times more hip house than I got to play at Jack Your Body!!), so if you’re feeling you want to move, jump, jack your body, git on up!

OK, so after upselling myself, I should also mention the rest of the Floppy Disko night. Other far more capable dj’s are The Lost Boys: (Sex Worker, Complex, Skreech & Black Eyed Boy), OSC-001, Junior & more. Also playing live are the Death Set, Cherry 2000. They describe it as a night of limp electro, flacid acid, lax funk, soft cock rock & relaxed grooves, so it should be a fun, mixed up kinda night.

Its $10 on the door, or free if you get one of their dope invites.

I’m Better Looking Than You

Well, according to this article over on the Sydney Morning Herald from the weekend perhaps I am (unless your “Eurasian” as well):

Eurasian features have been associated with beauty since Somerset Maugham extolled the exotic appearance of a woman of mixed race more than 80 years ago in his short story, The Pool.

Now Australian psychologists have shown there is a scientific basis for this stereotype.

Now who am I to argue with “science”. 😉

Cracks in the Pavement

Now this sounds rather cool:

Cracks in the Pavement: Gifts in the Urban Landscape is a multi-phased, interactive project that calls attention to the “in-between” spaces encountered throughout everyday life. The project focuses on details within the urban landscape and encourages close inspection of our social space. This summer, artists based in locations around the world will respond to what they find in their urban environments by making art objects designed to be placed in sites that intrigue them—-at bus shelters, in alleys, under bridges, in libraries or post offices, or deep in park bushes. Members of the public are invited to search for these site-specific works using maps and clues provided at Art works featured in Cracks in the Pavement may be kept by whoever finds them. Works not found will be allowed to remain in the landscape indefinitely to be encountered by chance, displaced, or transformed by the very environmental forces that define each piece’s context.

The installations are mainly in the US, but there’ll be a couple in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne, including a couple of sound works by Sofie. Apparently things kick off June 5th with instructions for finding the location of the works getting posted up on the Cracks in the Pavement site.
