8 May 2007, 01:51 by eheadacheThis Brian May I share Fear My Thoughts upon The Sleeping, and I am very intrested in your Dilated Peoples Hidden in Plain View on it.
In reading this, you will be Wishing Well you are asleep.
I find that I am the type of person that could just sleep all day long, and really not give a shit about it. I also find that with myself during the week I have to have two Alarm Calls and half a dozen Snooze Functions to get myself out of bed on time, however on the Weekend once my Eyes Open my feet are straight out of bed. Admitedly there is more fun to be had on the Weekend rather than a boring day at work.
Im the type of person that will deprive + Break My Body of sleep, by cutting my sleeping hours short of a couple every other day, and then wonder why mid-week Im feeling so tired. I have been knowns to catch up on these hours in some of the strangest times and places, Give it ago next time you get a dinner hour, find somewhere quite to go, and set a clock and have a sleep…

This week from Wednesday to Friday was the first edition of Preipop, a new music festival organized by Cleopatra, a local student association from Groningen (of which I happen to be a member). The event was even covered in national newspaper NRC Next, which was pretty cool. The (free) festival consisted of two days of live music, and one DJ-day. I went to the live music days.
The atmosphere of the festival was pretty good. Cleopatra is quite a small venue, consisting of two floors, each with their own stage: the lower floor had mainly rock music, while the higher floor had more relaxed jazz and singer-songwriter music. The size of the venue meant that halfway through the evening, it was already pretty stuffed, especially at the higher floor. The festival attracked mainly Cleopatra members, but there also were a fair amount of non-members, which was pretty cool.
Anyway, the first day opened with Snooze, who made ska/reggae-ish music. …

3 Oct 2005, 21:26 by FidgitalOut walking at lunch, I picked up Crammed Global Soundscape 1980-89 - Part Two: Electrowave, apparently part of a 2003 compilation series from Brussels-based label Crammed. Though I've certainly heard of some of the old Crammed catalogue, I'm more familiar with their current bands like Zuco 103, 4hero, Snooze, Zap Mama and Bebel Gilberto (to name a handful).
The album is not all gems, but there are a few. The first track, Saure Gurke by Aksak Maboul, dates from 1977 and is actually by Crammed founder Marc Hollander. It's a nice little ambient electro piece.
Other standout pieces include innovative synthpop from Colin Newman and Bel Canto (though it's not my personal fave, Shoulder to the Wheel), the wild world fusion electro of Zazou/Bikaye and Tuxedomoon and my personal favourite track on the whole album, I Don't Like Music by Telex.
The late '70's and early '80's were a fascinating time for music which I lived through but feel like I missed. …
