Jean Paul Gaultier my acronym name twin (par the p) & Madonna back in the days when she wasnt a butch granny and fashion was sexy & shocking, not skeletal & saturated! Yes more French fancies popping up on my radar, this time VS mag is biting my Gaelic inspirations!?! Sacre bleu (what ever that means) can it be i’ve started a French trend….or is it the fact now im feeling all red white and vertical blue i cant help but notice all the French things surrounding me? Click the pic to watch this classic catwalk moment, ladies you will want some or at least one swear!


hip-hop history in 4mins

Wrec jus posted this bad boy on FB, had to share cause it is kinda SICK! Double had to share cause due to the beatboxer Eklips being French, POW ON THE FRENCH TIP!


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


die da, die da, die da oder die da?!?

I’d told you we’d get to Germany by the end of the day. This is the only German song i can confidently sing along with and still not really know what the hell im saying…lets hope its still big in the karaoke bars in Berlin else ill be stuck with Hasslehoff covers on a drunk night out ;) Dam this song was massive though back in the day, i remember it was always on MTV over here in the UK like 90 erm something or other, oh and there was that french guy too, what was his name again…….. ah Fabe im thinking i have to have french hip hop day at some point, that album was one of my favs back in the day, Detournement De Son!


yes mista french man whatever you say!

Saian Supa Crew are the dope shit, (though im by far superior on the playstation, Glasto ’03 FACT) if you dont know about them then please get to know,  they have been tearing up microphones for at least 12 years that i know of and have consistently kept me captivated without having had a single idea of what their on about. I think that’s the test of a good rapper, if you don’t even understand the language he’s speaking but the flow is still dope enough to keep your attention. In fact with some of the ish these rappers are calling lyrics nowadays it would be a  blessing to not have to understand whats being said…i wonder if Tinchy knows french? Anyhoo this song is ridiculous and has been in my top 10 sexy hip-hop tunes since i first heard it way back when, so many sounds, instruments, vocal tones, its just straight butter….makes me want to dance around in my underwear in front of curtainless windows with a soft light on at night, ‘ahoy there neighbor!’


safe sex fail!


SHould’ve worn a condom
Uploaded by getsplenty. – Watch feature films and entire TV shows.

Stoner movies are the greatest 2nd is French, then Swedish (i just watched GWDT, insanely brilliant) and then action movies which encompass all types of fighting and shoot em ups, explosions and blood spouting galore! However concerning my numero uno film category i have share with you a scene thats has been making me piss myself laughing daily since re watching the movie Grandmas Boy last week. Oh the bliss of loosing your v’s mixed up with the medical responsibilities of sex, Word Up!


von d & phe phe

So the past weekend i was in Holland and Belgium to smoke trees and watch the mighty purple one …in the background a constant soundtrack of dope tunes thanks to all the selectors i chilled with, some mighty tunes a get dropped.  This is from Sundays’ Kip Madras dinner….which by the way was the first time i’d had an apple in curry…tres interestant no?!?! Anyways Von D & Phe Phe (me likey more than the Skreamix) Show Me :)


my little obsession

Onra plain and simple i cant stop listening to any and everything i can get my hands on from this little sample shuffling master, might be late on him but does it really matter? Find his past offerings on his myspace but go now and buy the brand new album Long Distance now on itunes with the highly dope High Hopes ft Reggie B, rewinding this tune to death on my iphone fighting urge to two step down the street!


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 ;)

Catching up on some podcasts on the train down to London can’t believe i missed Low End Theory X with DJ Nobody and Free The Robots. FTR’s mix is F***ING enjoyable i can tell thee. Im dying to know though the name or creator of the track at 28.34 on this podcast, if anyone can help will be much appreciated :P Download via Itunes or at Low End Theory club where you can also get all of last years mixes for free YAY!

International Log x Ren & Stimpy!

Ren & STIMPY

Remember Ren & Stimpy with its cool jazz intro, very adult off the wall scripts and totally bizarre storylines? Man that was some good tv, i hadn’t thought about that show in ages until today. Saw this video International Log and spat my coffee out laughing, so obviously went on a search for more… (more…)


Electro Vertigo or Tecktonik?

Im drunk and you tubing randomness, in particular the dancing style known as Electro Vertigo or Tecktonik….as seen in a previous post Yelle’s A Cause Des Garcons…theres so many videos including one with the dude from Amelie and Angel A, Jamel Debbouze.

(more…)


Watching…. Stereo Panda Advert!


Stereo Panda Blaxploitation promo video from Stereo Panda on Vimeo.

Can those Pandas get any cooler? Obviously their french which is more than the half of it but then they make all those dope tee prints and preppy street wears, in bold bright colours and patterns, exclusive and limited edition artist designed shirts… Answergin my own question, yes they just got way cooler (how the fuck does this happen!) thanks to their Spring/Summer range promo’d in this wicked video from Tenas and featuring music from the Funktastics….Hey you there on the video thumbnail..you look very familiar, what was your name again… lol!


Yelle – A cause des garcons

I was thinking about getting rid of my Reebok Pumps that i hardly wear until i seen this video. The French are so f**king cool even when their whack…How do they do that? Another note on this video, which if you haven’t guessed by now is totally the song for the day, does anyone else think the guy that starts off in the middle looks like Spor?? Just an observation not a diss….. Hasta!
