I’m Doing Christmas and It’s Doing Me In

The Christmas briefs are in…


People moaning about Christmas decorations in the shops in October can shut right up. I’m going to be fed up with the whole thing before Argos even puts Slade on rotation.

I’m working on two of them at the moment and thinking that it might be time to do a ‘7 Deadly Sins Of Digital Christmas’. There’s plenty of them around.

The only thing that’s going to get me through is the Beat Street Christmas Rap. You can’t beat the bit where Doug E Fresh pops out from between Santa’s legs. Awesome. (The Xmas bit doesn’t start until 1m30).

Happy Christmas – A Mix For You

I know it’s not Christmas yet, but I’m going on my holidays and I won’t be back for a while. So I thought I’d drop you a Christmas mix. It’s not very Christmassy apart from the last track which somehow feels a bit seasonal to me.

Anyhow that’s all you’re getting in terms of a gift. I can’t think of anything better. Sorry.

  1. Hug The Scary (Partial Arts Remake) – Will Saul and Lee Jones
  2. Eraser (XXXchange mix) – Thom Yorke
  3. Expected as You Are (Gabriel Ananda Mix) – The Subliminal Kid
  4. L Delay (Original Mix) – Andromat 30000,Jan
  5. Trauermusik (Original Mix) – Partial Arts
  6. Enjoy the Moments (Ripperton Mix) – Shinedoe
  7. Keepin’ Me (Fauna Flash Mix) – Stereotyp
  8. Son of Raw (Loco Dice Remix) – Dennis Ferrer
  9. Zig Zag (Roland Appel Remix) – Yellow Sox
  10. To The Sky (The Loving Hand Remix Full Length) – Maps
  11. Hustler (Shackleton Mix) – Simian Mobile Disco
  12. Dopamen (Original Mix) – DOP Feat. Noze
  13. Where is Home (Burial Remix) – Bloc Party
  14. Cockney Violin – Caspa
  15. Tiergarten (Supermayer Remix)

Not sure it’s right for over dinner with the family. But it might come in useful over the festive season.

Long Break (phew)

Well that’s one of the longest blog breaks I’ve had since starting up. I’ve not been doing much really. Christmas was pretty much like a short hibernation for me. Did some very good sleeping and a little bit of family type stuff.

Then dropped straight back into work-a-mania! Hoorah.

I would have got back into the blog a bit sooner, but I’ve been writing lots of words at work and I don’t know what it is, but I reckon I’ve only got a imited number of words in me per day. Anyway I think I’ve broken my silence and I’m back…
Happy New Year by the way!

I don’t know why really, but I love this little site. It’s only wee, but it’s perfectly formed. Kind of like one of thost little boutique shops where everything has been hand picked by a shopkeeper who cares. It’s just nicely designed things from Scotland, with a contemporary twist. If anyone’s looking to buy me something for Christmas – this scarf looks lovely ;-) Via Coolhunting.com
