feeling all french

fr08feelingfrenc

Was it Brassai or Michael Pitt that got me fanatical about France this past weekend? Either way it inspired this mix which is a collection of a few the things i watched and listened to whilst feeling all French. The Dreamers soundtrack provided some excellent Jimi HendrixJanis Joplin as well as turning me onto an old french singer Francoise Hardy , La Haine gets a little feature in there as well as Amelie & Angel A alongside a host of French artists that were already on my harddrive and of course the YSL advert with my current obsession Monseiur Pitt. Enjoy late night when the lights are low with a glass of red wine, whatever poison as long as it makes you mellow, sink back into the sofa or your lovers arms and let the music play… x


c’est orie’blah

Ok i’ve woken up french this morning, im wearing black, being rude and making up my own dialeck du francais, tee hee bon bon. Je pense ( i think) it has something to do with a link i was tweeted this week by London based male slasher Orie. I have no idea who this guy is (his website Bandana-O has nothing but t-shirts on it) or why sacre blur he wanted to send moi a link to his tune up on Youtube called Zonin but he did god bless him le petit follie du jambon and i really couldnt keep this ‘nil pois effort spectacular‘ to myself. Et Voila 100% effort 5% audible enjoyment c’est Orie‘blah avec Zonin…its kind of like a Andre 3000 on Pink and Blue in alot of pain, mixed with my niece at 5 years old repeating made up lyrics for an hour and that dude off youtube who falls out of his underwear on the bed and has shots of him singing dans la douche (any advances?)! Love it, Hate it its out there for your entertainment, PR savvy as well this one tweeting the link to all relevant industry heads (see below) wonder if Dizzee & Jay will be calling him for a tete a tete sometime soon……*slapsmyselfforunoringinalironicclosing*

Orie'blah

(Disclaimer – If you weren’t aware i am not french and cannot speak, or write french with any degree of accuracy, therefore do not waste your time with school teacher corrections on my own made up dialect NB unless they come with free one on one lessons and your names Vincent Cassel ;)


where is my click suit?

…and my bandanna to tie round my ponytail 96 style! Twitter convo today with Harry Love has informed me Lords of The Underground are playing in Paris this evening, F**K DAM AWWWW! I wanna go so bad, especially after rehashing my Yo! MTV Raps days, this tune was a banger! Not to mention the ridiculously gully beat down shots from Mr. Funke and DoItAll Dupré, god the 90′s were so fun…bon chance dans Paris fellas, air kisses and hiphop fists to ya :P


a happy new years

chamonix mountain

Yes i made it back alive, up and down the mountain (on which i stand in picture) on a snowboard, through the icy streets and after hours of heavy alcohol and cheese consumption with some tremendous people i can safely say Chamonix was a blast! (more…)


R.I.P accessories….

RIP Lost stuff

This year touring with the Qemists has took me all over the place, we’ve played and partied quite hard, in so many cities & clubs it was inevitable that some of my possesions were gonna go walkabouts. This is just a small dedication to some of my favourite pieces no longer with us, well no longer with me some lucky f**kers found them…hope their being nice to my babies! (more…)


The Qemists x Enter Shikari

OMG its official, The Qemists wil be supportting Enter Shikari in April during their European tour. We’re hitting up France, Belguim, Austria, Germany and some other country i have never heard of! Woop woop, rock n roll baby…maybe i’ll get my rock god husband a little sooner than i expected, lmao! All joking aside though im really excited, this band were the best thing i got from my last relationship and they are f**king killer  on stage, their music’s definately not for the faint hearted. Really think we’re all gonna learn an awful lot out there…tee hee, as well as get some sick tour scars and stories lol!

All confirmed dates are up now on the events calender @ Jenna Ration G


Its all about the flow…

Foreign hip-hop, i love it and finally i found someone else who does too. Late friday night, Saturday morning round at Mr Reasons house on the old youtube i showed him Notkea Rotte and The Russians he fired back with a nice Italian selection which i was far too drunk to remember the name of (please post links if you know of any). Now i dont know if he understands what their saying cause to be honest i certainly don’t but we both agreed its not about understanding every lyric its more about the flow. (more…)


My European Christmas day….

So right over the other side of the earth and who do i end up spending my Christmas day with…non other than a lovely bunch of europeans and some random asians (thats not racist thats what they call people from Japan in OZ)…. In true style the Brit lad got drunk & rowdy and i had ot make an exit  but i had fun all in all getting to know how to say ‘ Cheers’ ‘Merry Christmas’ and ‘f**k off’ in 4 different languages… it always comes in handy :)

Jenna Ration G on Tour


Lights Camera Action – Taken

Movie out this month directed by Luc Besson and starring Liam Neeson as an ex-Goverment Preventor with 96 hours to save his daughter from the eastern european sex trade…..sounds to far fetched…well it just might be. Obvious flaws in the storyline plus some shockingly cheesy script moments weaken the powerful punch of this movie delivered through its gloriously brutal fight scenes and over the top car chases. Famke Janssen (Jean Grey, X-men) is the only believable character in the story having perfected the bitter rich wife role to a ‘T’ in The Whackness…is she being type cast all of a sudden? Release date on this was put back so many times this year as critics believed it was cashing in off the Madeline Mcain abduction, however i think that story was made up to give this film some sort of serious credentials…Good luck with that! This film is ‘Ransom’ meets ‘Man on Fire’ with a thick slice of Segal realism and a terrible influence as im off now to take on the Turkish sex trade operating on Blackstock rd, armed with the essential ipod speakers and the deadliest weapons….my hands!
