Parove Stelar, Wanna Get

I present to you an amazing sound along with an amazingly edited video by vdj Doc-Terry
It plays with elements of "Swing Time" & "Follow The Fleet"
starring Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers.
"wanna get" audio sample of "Rose Rouge" by Saint Germain

I feel the urge to compliment vdj Doc-terry for the great work he has done with this video whilst
I know that embedding the music with the dancing must have been great deal of stressful work! BRAVO.../

(In the time to come i shall also write you an article exposing the magical Parov Stelar)

The, Louie Austen

From a Suigeneris night club crooner to one of the most enlivening performer’s electronic music has to offer and this being in his 60ies! An Austrian from Vienna whose voice notes us back to the 40s. 

This song is my latest obsestion../ (LiSTen) 

Sounds of Jazz plus Electro 

“Art must be a matter of life and death – otherwise it’s not art“ is Louie´s sincere certainty. 

 "I´ll never retire, I´ll probably die on stage but I don´t give a fuck!"

In the Year 1999 the Viennese Electro scene gives birth to a new and surprising idea. A Viennese electronic producer differentiates his experimental electronic tracks with Louie Austen’s velvety voice. 
His first album “Consequences“ (1999) is well received in the club scene and the first concerts turn out promising, that’s the time when Louie makes a gutsy decision. “I decided there and then to resign from all other jobs and to completely dedicate myself to this new project for a period of two years“.
Louie Austen wasn’t ready to cease his two years journey. Instead he came together with Viennese electronics pioneers on two more albums, “Only Tonight“ (2001) and “Easy Love“ (2003). 

This is smt for you to settle back and enjoy with a glass of red wine, or on the beach while the sun is setting on you../

'A Demonstration of the Power of Self Belief'

It’s nearly 5 o’clock in the morning and I am suffering from a broken leg and boredom so I got myself snooping around for smt cunningly smart and hysterically funny. So, I started from the classics ‘Monty Python’ and such until It got to me; what better than Eddie Izzard.

For you who still have no idea of whom I am talking about; let me introduce you.

Eddie Izzard, the “Lost Python” according to John Cleese is a Brit stand-up comedian and actor who mostly performs as a travesty “Women wear what they want and so do I." According to Izzard, he is "a straight transvestite or a male lesbian" or else "a lesbian trapped in a man's body."

Mr. Izzard’s comedy finds roots in Monty Python in the way he streams out of his consciousness in his performances delivery and jumps among topics. As a dyslexic he rarely works with a script and thus interrupts himself with new jokes and ideas that may alter the character he portrays into a completely new one. He juggles topics both current and historic, regular re-imaginings of historical events which result in scenes like 'Cake or Death: Church of England runs the Inquisition,' or 'Jesus Ministers to the Dinosaurs.'

Enough of history and let’s get to are current times. Eddie Izzard released a documentary called ‘Believe: The Eddie Izzard Story’. It narrates the canonicals of the comedian’s rise to fame from the near beginning, his mother’s death from cancer when he was just 6 years old and thus later his departure to boarding school with his brother and his close tie with his father.

Believe was screened in San Francisco on March 25th and is now realeased on DVD and its is just glips of something i would dare to call colse to ammazing >>>

“If you want to be a singer, you've got to believe you can sing, if you want to be a comedian you've got to believe you can be funny.” You can DO anything if you just only BELIEVE../

The black and white rightfulness

In my world, black & white pictures plus films bring out the most vibrant of images that can ever be taken. The only ‘absolute’ Maestro of this art in our times is known by the name Peter Lindbergh, the conceptual artist, the painter, photographer and filmmaker. 
When you work in colour what you are looking for is a sort of first-degree reality, whereas in black-and-white you can elaborate on that reality. “. This is his latest work for German Vogue march 2010../
