Saint Lou Lou – Maybe You

I ran across this song and video today and it touches me deeply. So beautiful and evocative.

The Guardian UK has written about the singing twins:

With its sleepy, minor chord synths and innate sense of longing for what could have been, Saint Lou Lou’s debut single feels like the perfect end-of-summer song. In fact, the disparity between the seasons and climates infuses everything about the music made by twins Elektra and Miranda Kilbey, the pair splitting their time between the crisp winters of Sweden and the balmy summers of Australia.

Andrew in Drag and K2K Carnival (Trinidad & Tobago)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Completely disjointed ( though perhaps not) post tonight.  First off, I have been filling in for another manager at the TV station ( in addition to my writing and my normal TV job)  for the last 29 days without a day off and I am working till 8pm every day. I still have 10 more days before I can get a day off  so you can imagine my mood.  Today that mood changed when,out of the blue I got a FB message from someone I interview on a regular basis who asked  why I hadn’t contacted her in a while and to let me know that there was a  Carnival costume waiting for me at the K2K Mas Camp.

I need to put this into perspective.  Carnival is a big deal in T&T, the biggest party/festival of the year.  I used to like it but it lost its artistic roots for me once Peter Minshall ( now a friend)  stopped designing beautiful costumes that had a message and the thing turned into little more than an all-inclusive  party on the move with bikinis and beads. Then last year I saw a new band appear with the most beautiful costumes I had seen in years – K2K. Fashion and Carnival merged into a display of  gorgeousness that had me Facebooking and Tweeting the  band.

If all works out  I will be spending Carnival on the road with the most beautiful  band in years and I cannot guarantee I will not do my runway walk on the streets of Port of Spain.

If you want to see the amazing K2K presentation for Carnival 2012 – click here.

When you think about it, Carnival is really about being in drag for a day. Which segues nicely to my next bit. Just saw this  cool video and excellent song  posted by Randy Roberts Potts on Facebook . The Magnetic Fields – Andrew in Drag.

I love it!

Fun Find – Kylie Minogue Vs. Adele (Marc Johnce Mashup)

Anyone who knows me knows that I have a mildly unhealthy obsession with Kylie Minogue ( more so than even Lady GaGa) so I was thrilled to discover this little gem.
