Busy busy busy

The past 2 weeks have been spent mainly in the company of that lovely genre of people known as estate agents as we hunted for a new house. That is now found and all the stress is gone again. We have a lovely 3rd housemate who I know from uni and will be a most excellent dancing partner. So bring on the housewarming!

Since Xmas and unintentionly(i.e. it wasnt a conscious new year detox reason) I’ve been eating an excessive amount of small orange fruit. Sometimes 10 in 2 hours – I’m a bit worried in case I turn into an orange. And I say ‘small orange fruit’ becuase really, what is the difference between clementines, manderins, and tangerines?? However the world is going detox crazy in a new year stylee at the moment, and BBC Radio 1 have a campaign at the moment all to do with eating heathily and juicing! Maybe I should cut down on my nandos consumption. I know I definately need to get myself a gym membership when I move, and maybe a personal trainer for a bit. Any recommendations?

Talking of the beeb, enough already about Jerry Springer! I’ve been trying to make an effort to really listen again to some good radio shows across a variety of stations recently. One Click:Recordbox on Radio 1 – 3 specialist djs have 20 minutes to introduce you to the essential tracks from their genre – its on on Monday mornings at 4am, or more realistically any time using your friendly BBC Radio Player. Annie Mac’s ‘accessible’ dance & electro show and 6Music’s 6 mix.

Oh and this page has some interesting stuff on it, and a good blog.

And finally can anyone recommend some old Roots Manuva stuff? (I really like the new single). And any idea if the Nouvelle Vague album is worth buying?

Reading : Blogs. I really need to read some books dammit.

Watching : Desperate Housewives (not as good as is being made out). Looking forward to seeing Marti Noxon’s new show on E4 in a couple of weeks.

Listening : right now… Kelis, Beenie Man & T.O.K. – Trick Me Twice from 6music’s The Mix show

  1. Roots Manuva’s ‘Run Come Save Me’ is great. The singles ‘Witness (One Hope)’ and ‘Dreamy Days’ were definite highlights, the latter having an embarrassment of remix riches, including one by the Super Furries.

    He also appears on the great remix of Ty’s ‘Oh you want more?’, and his Badmeaninggood compilation is also ace, not least for his unique cover of The Fabs’ ‘Yellow Submarine.’ Seriously.
