23 Jun 2008, 4:41 de MattiliciousSo yeah basically I'm going to start randomly doing updates and crap because I feel like I need to take more advantage of the journal creating feature or whatever.
So yeah, this week Kylie Minogue totally dominated the charts once again until yesterday when I completely got into Róisín Murphy and she quickly made one of the highest jumps ever on my charts, starting out at 0 plays and making it all the way to 114 plays. So I think that is an amazing feat, you know? Not many artists hold my interest that much initially.
Also, this is the second week in a row that the top spot on my Weekly Artist Charts has been stolen from Kylie, last week Old Timer, Etta James made a huge leap to my top 20 with nearly twice as me plays as Kylie. So I thought that was amazing too considering her blues/soul vibe is a big difference from the dance-pop of Kylie. Anyway above and below are some graphics I just threw together for this entry because I was incredibly bored.

I do like an album that's impossible to pin down. Is it hip-hop? Is it electroclash? Who cares, it's bloody good. "Electro retro meets techno rap rock" says the man himself in Electro Living, before going on to describe himself as the illest whippersnapper from the land of sausage and batter. The beats are manic, the energy's frantic. And the slow songs that turn up are tender and affecting. Into this breakneck mix, Akala startlingly introduces some prominent Siouxsie and the Banshees samples - twice, if I'm not wrong. And props for pulling off the unlikely and adorably un-hip feat of cramming in as many Shakespeare play titles and references as possible in Comedy Tragedy History.
19. The Bird and the Bee - The Bird and the Bee
Did you like the Feist album? Me too, but not nearly so much as this, which I think covers some similar sonic ground, if a bit more electronically. Gentle arrangements disguise hard-nosed sentiments; Again and Again…

10 Oct 2007, 2:27 de singinanarchistEn pensant à toi. J’ai presque envie de me mettre à pleurer. Et puis non. Pour ne pas m’abîmer les yeux, pour ne pas avoir ce goût amer dans la bouche. Et aussi ces larmes séchées sur mon visage. Et surtout pour ne pas te faire ce plaisir.
Mais pour te faire plaisir. Je continuerai de penser à toi. Au moins une fois par jour. Au moins deux fois par jour. Et plus encore. Si je savais compter jusqu’à trois, si tu pouvais me dire oui. Rien qu’une fois.
Dis-moi oui. Trois fois oui. A quoi ? A qui ? A moi. Tout le temps. Toi et moi. Sans fin.
