ManneTroll

We’re back from our short little break and the dolls are reloaded. It was supposed to be Mannequin Hotnuts because of the performance that Lady Darling has planned. Then last weekend, when Mary and I went fabric shopping for our outfits, we discovered a ‘bingo troll’ print. We couldn’t leave it rotting in the sale bin. It’s going to be a true Messhausen dress for da Mary, who will also do a hot bingo troll appearance.

So here we go: Mannequin Bingo Troll Hotnuts!
Saturday, April 25 – 10:30 pm

Mannequin Hotnuts!

New Roisin

Pick That Cherry for ME!

It’s been 4 years since Roisin Murphy released Overpowered. She put out a few songs after the album but keeps us waiting for a full on disco house fest. In an recent interview the singer revealed that she is working on a new record, that is supposedly coming from a “deeper place”.

I just hope she comes out with an album this year. To make the wait a little bit shorter, a limited edition 12″ of Roisin’s collaboration with Toddla T, Cherry Picking, was released last weekend for Record Store Day. I would love to get my mittens on the red vinyl that comes in a mega cherry simulating sleeve. The song is from TT’s new album that is scheduled for August (check this link for the first single, also super cute). Roisin Murphy had first worked with Toddla T for the remix of You Know Me Better.

I’m hungry

Apparently this is a well know joke in Bavaria and maybe all over Germany. Maybe worldwide?

My friend Sabs made me listen to Wuthering Heights today and said listen closely, right after the chorus you can hear Kate sing in German:

“Ich steh’ im Cafe und hab’ Hunger”

I will never hear it differently. Too funny.
Are there any more secret German messages in English pop songs? I’m intrigued.

“Heathcliff, it’s me, Cathy, I’ve come home”

Rise!

Helllllo, I'm huuuur!

‘Rise of the Apes’ is set in present day San Francisco where man’s experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence of apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. (source)

That is the sentence that got me into the apes almost a year ago. I had forgotten about it up until I found the trailer today. And now it stars James Franco. Hopefully, there is an ape – human sex scene!
Anyways, I’m very much entertained by the fun-romantic-creepiness picture above.

Watch the trailer or here.

Deeper Understanding

Kate

This super cute picture of Kate Bush was uploaded on her facebook today. Of course today also saw the release of the re-recorded Deeper Understanding single, soon to appear on Kate’s new album of reworks, Director’s Cut. The song first appeared on 1993’s The Sensual World. Instead of the Trio Bulgarka singing the chorus, this time around, we can hear Kate’s son Albert impersonating the computer programme in schräge filter mode. Listen below.
