Ho Ho Ho

I sit here a bit fuzzy after mistakenly drinking 3 quadspresso coffees this morning - so I'm a cross between tired and high!

Been listening to Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder all morning, managed to pick up a bunch of CDs recently and have been assimilating them all into iTunes. Very Christmassy.

Decided I'd take photos next to Christmas trees on my travels last weekend - the one above was in the hotel in Freiburg. 2 weeks ago. There's lots of photos from my iPhone up on my .mac web gallery now, uploaded them all this morning too.

Didn't mention last weekend in Germany on the blog yet, but you'll be seeing the pics soon enough, and we managed to record my mighty 3 hour set in Freiburg ok, I have the files, so just need to chop them together and get it all nice and loud, then the podcast will spurt the mix out for you lot - so keep a look out! Was a fun set, you can hear me and the MC getting progressively drunker in the last hour, and the last 30 mins is just random encore chaos! Haha!

Oh, and shouts to the Landau guys - SEND ME THE PHOTOS!!!

This weekend just gone I was over on another Rusky mission, did Rostov on Friday (which they later told me has the highest concentration of gangsters, AND is also the most famous Russian city for serial killers & phsychopath types!! YIKES! - everyone I met was totally cool though!) and then Tver on Saturday. Both gigs were a great laugh, I managed to get enough sleep and avoid super snowdrifts so everything was pretty much clockwork and stress-free for a change... Had funtimes backstage in Tver before I went on - turned out the club owner collected videos recorded off TV of real OLD 80s italo pop/disco performances... While everyone outside was raving we had a little italo-disco party back there. I managed to copy off a few of his super-rare cds too so all good indeed!

Got a lot on this week, I have to record my mix CD for the Radio Records Pirate Station guys, do some radio jingles for them, then get on the case with the new Bloc Party Remix, and finish off my latest new track, AND get loads of my old computer equipment I've since upgraded from up on eBay! ARGGgggg. AND get my hair cut, and get new tracks sorted for next weekend's gigs, one of which is a hardcore anythinggoes electro4/4 & 80s set... AND go into London on Thursday to Hayleys English department Christmas party... John B + Middle English Professors smalltalk = WIN!
