Hotnuts of an Imperfect Angel

The first Hotnuts double-themed party was so much fun. Thanks for coming out.

Lex and Karen brought “Blood Viking Sex Magik” to the Hotnuts stage. It out us into total imperfect angel bliss. Have a look at lots of chili viking outfits below.

In true Mariah style, we used Hello Kitty tongue tattoos to beautify many tacky tongues. (Thank you, Toffi.)

Hotnuts is back on November 28 with very special performers.

Hotnuts Ddoouubbllee Dddiiippp

First the bad news: There is going to be no Hotnuts for Halloween in October as Mary, Oliver and proddy are in old, ancient Europe. But here comes the good news: Because of that we thought we need two themes this month. The first Hotnuts double bill, this Saturday, September 26:

Hotnuts Double Dippppp

Liberty x Hermès

London’s Regent Street just got a new pop up-flash shop (whatever you want to call it) which is open from September 7 to October 18. On sale are the limited edition Liberty and Hermès printed scarfs and ties.

The scarfs feature classic Liberty micro floral patterns with a Hermès”™ ‘Ex Libris’ design dropped on top. All that comes in the finest cotton.

Needless to say, Mary and myself really want such a limited collabo scraf.

Thanks Mary.

Lass uns Liebe sein

Hier ist nun endlich die erste Solosingle und das dazugehörige Video “Lass uns Liebe sein” (Let Us Be Love) von Jochen Distelmeyer. Nachdem mir “Wohin mit dem Hass?” doch etwas zu aggro war, geht’s hier in gluecklicheren Tönen weiter. Und wer hätte gedacht, dass JD nochmal mit den jungen Leuten tanzt? Herzerfrischend jugendlich.
Und als Zugabe gibt es noch ein Interview.

(Danke superschum)

Mariah, Mary and Oprah at Precious Gala

When can you see Mariah, Mary J. Blige and Oprah together on stage? Only at the gala screening of Precious at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Clearly, Oprah took over. I was short of making an animated gif of the last two pictures below. But it scared me too much.

Two More for Fall

Roisin Murphy premiered new songs in London last weekend. Her pregnancy seems to have popped out “Momma’s Place”. She sounds amazing, singing live over the pumping beats. The synths in the background sound like a sample, no?

The first single to Roisin’s planned new album is supposed to be “Demon Lover”. During an interview with BBC6 early this year she described it as a “big funky house track”. Not sure when the album drops, as she was also talking about releasing it in bundles, maybe as EPs? So, let’s hope we’re getting some new stuff soon.

The Kid Cudi album, Man On The Moon: The End Of Day, has leaked and of course it is great. Beats be good and his sometimes sleepy voice puts me into some kind of romantic(?) mood. He be cute.

New Yoko!

Don't Stop Yoko

Can this September get any better? Mariah is releasing her “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel” at the end of the month and about a week before, September 21, we’re getting a new Yoko Ono album, Between My Head And The Sky. It is the first record since 1972 recorded with the Plastic Ono Band. The new band lineup features her son Sean Lennon, who has also co-produced the album with Yoko.

I was just listening to the samples of the songs and I guess the more electronic songs “Watching The Rain” and the first single / ep “The Sun is Down!” are my favourites. There is also the classic Yoko moaning in “Moving Mountains” (for a moment I was hoping she had done a cover version of the Usher song), the fun lyrics of “Ask The Elephant!” and how could I forget about the heartbreaking ballad “I’m Going Away Smiling”?

Yoko seems unstoppable these days, she just has collaborated with designers ThreeASFOUR for their spring 2010 collection. Want it.
