Totally pop songs

April 5, 2008

Hello

This post is all about my favorite pop songs of the moment. They are totally Fun and Addicted. Enjoy them in the sun…

Blind by Hercules and the Love Affair/ Well probably you hear this song already. Great fcked up disco song with vocals by the marvelous Antony.

I Lust u (album version) by Neon Neon/ Electro song that comes from an amazing album that rides from 80’s, rap to sci-fi references. Best album of the year so far…

L.S.F. (Lost Souls Forever) by Kasabian/ Remember Oasis? Well this are better and energetic. Great modern rock song from a great rock album with fab songs.

It’s Not My Name by Ting Tings/ Not so new song but still ear it and loving it. Ting Tings are an pop alternative Arty band from Salford, U.K.

Grand DJ by Ting Tings/ The newest song from Ting Tings. Great.

Ready for the Floor by Hot Chip/ Catchy and at same time complex song. The album is a bit dark and downtempo but very emotional. Nice video.

Onyx by Space Art/ This is not a new song but a old vintage song that was just digitalized by Anthology Recordings and is on sale recently ready to download. Space Art is a French band that was formed by two friends in Paris in 1977. The album is highly tragic and dramatic full of synths and heavy drums. Highly recommended!

And do support the artist buying their music and not stealing it!

‘How To Food Your Life’

November 25, 2007

Food has been for the past years some of my finest subjects. My Food interest is not about the best receipt or the best restaurant chef but about the it’s power to heal and cure. Food is so important and powerful that can make you stronger, healthier, happier, energetic or euphoric. And just depends on what and how you eat.Also it has one of the biggest impact on the planet resources and global warming. It is in your choice to use it in the best way for you and for the planet.

Next you will find some resources to help you start doing it right now.

slow/ Slow Food is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.

help/ FreeRice. Cool game. For each word you get right, they donate 10 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program.

watch/ The Meatrix II ½ takes us to a processing facility, where we learn how we feed the Fast Food Nations. If you have not seen the Acclaimed The Meatrix I and Meatrix II do it as is fun and make you think. Another funny movie to watch but this time in the big screen is How to cook your life a film by Dorris Dorie with Zen Chef Edward Esp Brown.

resources/ A political incorrect nutrition sites of the late Dr. Weston A. Price, a Cleveland dentist that has been called the “Charles Darwin of Nutrition”. Amazing resources and information about what you should and shouldn’t eat. Also check this one. Warning as you may get confused after this. Mercola.com is another excellent nutrition/health site by Dr Mercola.

data/ NutricianData.com is a site that provides complete nutrition information for any food and receipts. Also provides the amount of calories that you need according to your lifestyle, age etc..

blog / want to extent your life? How about restrict your food at the minimum to obtain maximum life span. Calorie Restriction is not a new diet thing but a way of life for those who really make this choice. April’s blog tells us about what is like and how to start.

design/ Culiblog, a blog about food, food culture, food as culture and the cultures that grow our food. Katja Gruitjters is a Dutch food designer/artist check her work.

tokyo/ I’m a Japanese food lover and this site is great to get some receipts. If you are planning to go to Tokyo I suggest that you look at this site as it has more than 1.000 restaurants reviews and food related places to see.
