octupuses, mice, and bunniez

I was soOo bored by all the xmas tree decorations this year, well, excluding the cute vintage TIN ornament store I found in Switzerland with parrots and King Kongz in it!!! The cute couple running the shop were out of a Charlie Chaplin movie. ;-)

So I made use of some chocolate bunniez, a few soapy octupuses, and a cup of hand-made knitted mice by my dear friend pink kong. teehee ;-P

iPhone BeatMaker Xmas Baby Funk


iPhone BeatMaker - Googlaaaah feat. Nemi! by opolopo

"While the rest of the family was passed out and in a food coma on Christmas Day, I played around with my iPhone, sampling my two year old niece Nemi, launching her massive recording career. Still overwhelmed by all the creative tools available for the iPhone. Sitting in front of the open fire in a comfy arm chair with a (primitive but still) MPC in the palm of your hand is just mind blowing..." hehe

ps. The Swedish words you are hearin' are Mor Mor = Granny and Bajsa = Poo. Supa cute!

If in Stockholm Thursday...


YEs yes it's about do-diddly-time MASHI + BEMBE played Stockholm! Both are mighty mentors to me and gracious spiritz. They come with drummer Richard Spaven [Robert Mitchell, Jose James, Guru] in tow.

It's been over 3 yearz since I met the duo in Vancouver. Recorded parts of THE POLITIK in the Future Elements studio there with close friend and sweet gent Aklimatize and Lady Joni Love. ;-D

"Thunder & Flash" hit the outdoor stage that bright size jazz fried afternoon!!! Mashi's bass rumbled and rattled from underneath and Bembe's voice charged us all up like a lightning storm, oh and Sammy Figueroa on percussion - makin' us wag our tailz till the sweat flew off our sticky buttockz. haha Won't forget tryin' to drag Bembe out vintage shoppin, Mashi wouldn't let her, HAHA! Nah, studio time.

Will be a blessing to have em visit my nu Scandinavian home. Check INVITE do not miss this sonic sound experience!!!

snowconez and slippery slopez

This fragrant metal evening, yep I'm staring at the blinds while I type, I dream of goin' to HARBIN INT'L ICE AND SNOW FESTIVAL!

There's no snow here in Stockholm at the mo when all I really wanna do is sip on a hot choco before I plunge my NACKEDNESS into the white, oh and don't forget that HAWT SAUNA! The rush as your body flushes from point to point to point. Nerve endings tingling, jumping, forfeiting the notion that your body won't feel any discomfort at the end of it all. ;-D

FLASHBACK TOKYO YO YO!

I find myself reminiscing much about Tokyo these dayz oh ohHHhhh and DANCE MUSIC RECORD, the dopest record store I've ever flicked thru. Really hope it's still MAMMOTH like it was 2 yearz ago. Shintaro recognizing opolopo at the exact moment I turned on my cam made the experience even more enlightening. Be ready to drop your draw if ya haven't seen this vid yet!



Miz Fuze also thinks of her Nippon ladiez Pink Kong & Yukari. Puss.

can i get a chocoholicz anonymous?


I gotta DECLARE Switzerland is ooOOoOZING not only chocolate but CHUNKALICIOUS L.O.V.E!!! I dunno, it must be in em mountains, they remind me of home...sigh. When we flew into Geneva last Wednesday afternoon, they decided to SLAP me right in the FACE with a GRANDEOUS welcome like no other landscape!!!

Aside: Okey the Grand Canyon was more like a TECTONIC HUG OF EARTH! "Welcome, welcome, welcome, let me salute you with peace and majesty" - in a Wizard of Oz kinda voice NOT Santa Claus. ;-P

I might also be a little biased since my older bro and fam live there too. My nieces are supa dupa cute. 1 miniature Snow White and 1 cute Hawaiian Princess. They are growing and creating themselvez so fast! ;-D

I've been to Switzerland many a times before, but this visit vibrated and gyrated specially cos of Mr. Nann 'THE MAN WITH THE MASTER PLAN', Danielle, Boo, & Ngoc! Real feel good musical mightiez. Thanx again for your warm energy, ya know we can't wait to see you all again.

Linn


I trotted to Linn & Freddie's LP release last nite at Strand. I swear this Swedish lady gets my eyez welled up every DAMN time. So much unbridled passion and raw talent, even had her Daddy on baritone sax and her bro on backup vox. [Sorry no picz, I purposely didn't bring my cam so I'd enjoy the fleeting precious moments for once.]

I first heard Linn Segolson on her myspace playa 2 yearz ago, her ballad SURRENDER left me speechless and all shakey. haha It wasn't until this Summer that we'd finally meet at a bröllop after she sang a stripped down acoustic version of Janet's That's The Way Love Goes.

Hearing her intimately again last nite with blipboppin' Freddie Cruger aka Red Astaire was a SUPA treat. A melodious gifted songwriter, reminiscent of Patrice Rushen and Minnie Ripperton AND I don't say these words lightly.

Let's get ya moved shall we, listen to SURRENDER here!
CONGRATZ TO LINN & FREDDIE! WAITING FOR SPRING LP here!
