Happy Tuesday.

With the modern stresses of workin’ 9 – 5 I’ve found no better way of relaxing than a few friendly Mum jokes.  A good friend recently left the office I work at and it seemed only right to pack him off with a good Mum gag…(no pun intended) in his card.

I drew up some fitting leaving / Mum joke tributes and then my colleagues rated them, and picked the best one to go in the card. These were the candidates:

It’s been a pleasure working with you for the last few months
And it’s always a pleasure working your mum.

We’ll miss you!
Like your Mum misses cock / the late night bus after too many vodkas

Stay in touch!
Leave you’re number with you’re Mum – we’ll all be seeing her later

We just wanted to say thanks!
To your Mum – but I guess I can tell her later

We’re sorry to hear you’re leaving
Sorry like you’re mum after another night in the cells for drunk disorderly

Best of luck with everything!
You’ll need it. If you turn out like you’re Mum you’ll be addicted to crack in no time
And the winner was….

A: Out on the pulley

Q: What’s a robots favourite type of exercise?

A: Cicuitboard training

Q: What symptoms do robots with tourettes suffer from?

Happy Tuesday.

You may have noticed the poignant lack of exclamation mark – this is because I do not feel very exclamatory today -full stop.

Anyway, on a brighter note I got the FabricLive discography at the weekend – something I’ve been wanting to for ages. I wanted to share some of my favourite  tracks so far.

One of the tracks on the Freeland album (but by Evil Nine) is Hired Goons can be heard here – taken from the amazing (and free) Soundcloud

I’ve also put together a Spotify playlist of some of my favourite tracks from what I’ve listened to so far – although I’m sure there’s more to come… Get it FabricLive <—right there

PS – If you want to find me on Spotify I’m simon_grant

Have a good day.

(what a fucking name) Were recommended by a friend of mine – Handsome Matt – earlier today. The only thing that I am unhappy about with this situation is that I didn’t find ’em first.

I would put them loosely into the electro-minimal-indy-funk-tech genre, which basically means I haven’t got a clue, but whatever it is it’s good.

You can check out their track Garden here:

Their EP ‘All in Two Sixty Dancehall’  is on Spotify here: Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – All In Two Sixty Dancehalls EP


Happy Friday!

In 2006 Books Shade (German House duo Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier) released ‘Movements’. An album of epic proportions – my favourite tune is undoubtedly ‘In White Rooms’ (Hello Cathy)

Listening to a remix of this just a moment ago inspired me to  dig out the original, and all the remixes I could find (including the track blue rooms) and stick them in a playlist.

Voila: in white rooms

PS Their 2010 album Booka Shade – More! is worth a listen too
