Firstly lets do a quick round up of events as I have been too busy with said events to even begin writing about them. Ignoring the mare of packing and the double mare with broken legs that was my last week in the UK, spent in London, was actually spent being quite incredibly ill round at the Fox’s. So sweeping over these things I will more or less bullet point the Iceland related bits and pieces which came together over the last month.
*Ghostigital – video for Not Clean
my icelandic posing antics have gone through the roof now ladies and gents.
following my video making specifically for my Kiki-Ow music project the wondrous Ghostigital asked if yours truly would make a video for their newly released album In Cod We Trust, which incidentally is the NUTS.
I was instructed that it had to be the usual lo-fi look and feature some sort of go-go dancing i.e. My tits.
i made the set/costume (what there was), filmed it and edited it, and i am very very pleased indeed. it is fucked up. which suits them entirely. Needless to say mumsy was a little concerned at the sight of me with a cod head, masking tape over my nose and wearing more or less nothing else. But life is here to confuse.
Here it is:
*wonderous first night arrival
After more or less doing nothing except lie in bed for over a week I flewto my home, was greeted at the airport by Sruli and Svenni and taken care of. We decided to pop for a quick drink. Naturally after stepping foot in Sirkus this progressed to more or less 5 hours of dancing on furniture, drinking (for medicinal purposes) and generally causing mayhem. The remarkable quasi -fame myspace et al allows me was at its hilt. I managed to meet and greet not only people I have been in correspondence with but was also met by quite a number of people who merely recognised me from such (which has continued daily since). Regardless the night was champion, almost killed me, but was thoroughly enjoyed.
Curver and my battle between 80s versus 90s has taken a strange twist, leading us to a joint 90s rave night at bar 11 some point soon. I shan’t divulge too much regarding this at the moment except to tell you it will be a night not to miss under any circumstance. Oh no.
I am currently sat in Hresso whilst Trabant discuss their next video which I shall do my best to assist in whatever menial way I can, I havent slept for over 24 hours and the reason being is I went to the All Star studio last night around 10 with Viddi to remix ‘I’m Too Sexy’. We were there until 8.30 this morning. It was such an amazingly bright and sunny day that I decided to stay awake and drive to tackle Ikea with Curver. This was wonderous as I managed to get enough bits and pieces to make my empty-almost-prison-cell barren room looking like a room a bit more now.
Anyway, I digress... Viddi’s studio genius has transformed the track into filthy electro rave dirt. Its amazing. It still has to be structured and then mixed but it is sounding amazing. He sent it to his label and it seems, it is liked somewhat. You can take a listen to the WIP version on www.myspace.com/kikiow
So yes, there we have it for the moment. There are other bits and pieces but to be honest the length of time I have been awake without sleep has crippled my eyes and I think I am going to sit and have a beer with the boys and see what ideas they have for the video.
