I Watched The Throne!

I was lucky enough to go and see the legend that is Jay-Z and the talent that is Kanye West, perform live for the last night of Watch The Throne at the O2 courtesy of my very generous Husband.

All I can say is... my mind was blown!

It was hit after hit and the place was loving it.

I don't know why, maybe it was the excitement, but the thought of bringing my camera totally slipped my mind. As a result I've only got a few blur-o-vision pics that I was able to take with my iPhone and jazzed up with a few apps in an attempt to recreate the Ni**as in Paris video.

I could watch them perform all over again. Until I am lucky enough to see them again, I'll just make do with the video...

Thank You For The Music...

Working for Urban Outfitters certainly has it perks. But when I look at the US U.O website I always find stuff that I wish we had here.

Currently at the top of my 'U.O I want... list is:

Library AV Retro Turntable

Plays vinyl and you can hook it up to your mac (and PC - yuck!)

iPod Boom Box

Not much more I can say other than - OMG! I want. Breakin' 2: Electric Bugaloo

We've Officially Run Out Of Music

Well that can be the only reason I can think of for this tragic compilation...

Wonder By Name...

Last night I had the privilege of going to watch Stevie Wonder perfom live at the O2. I must say I felt slightly overwhelmed at the fact that I was there watching Stevie Wonder live, and felt a tear come to my eye as he sang all the classic Stevie songs that I love.

He got the crowd up and participating:
Guys: Turn it up
Girls:Yeah yeah
Guys:Turn it up
Girls: Yeah yeah
Guys:T-t-t-t-t-t-urn it up!

No?... I guess you had to be there.

He also seemed to have a bit of a thing for Barack Obama! I kid you not. He kept randomly inserting Barack's name into the lyrics of his songs. For example:
"I just called to say, Barack Obama for pressidennttttt.... I just called to say Vote Baraaaaaack-ooooo oo oo"
Ok, so maybe that's not exactly what he did, but you get the idea.

It's nice to see Mr. Wonder believing so much in the US presidential candidate, but seriously, what difference does it make to us? We can't vote. Did no one tell Stevie this?

Anyway, I guess we all know who Stevie is going to vote for.

Either way it was fun night, and I even got to take the Thames Clipper boat all the way back to Waterloo and see the sights of London by night. Nice.

Amy Winehouse - Back to Black

Even though Amy Winehouse looks like the rebellious daughter of Dorien Green (from the BBC sitcom Birds of a Feather... come on you remember. No?... Google it then)

Anyhoo... where was I, oh yeah... Her latest offering Back to Black is a 'Must buy'. It is a confection of 50's and 60's inspired melodies which suit her distinctive voice perfectly.

I am listening to it as I write and I can't see how anyone could not like this, but each to their own. It is a worthy follow up to her album Frank and for someone who is only 22 years of age, Back to Black is a testament to her talent.

To look at, I'm not such a big fan of hers. Usually just the sight of her grates on my nerves, don't ask me why, she just does. Anyone see her (drunken?) performance of 'Beat It' with Charlotte Church? (way to kill a classic girls).

However, inspite of this you just can't deny a good album when you hear it.

Now what are you waiting for?.. Go out and get it!!

Who Needs a Plan A, When There is a Plan B!

As Jay-Z once said "Now can I get an encore, do you want more?" and the answer is: YES WE DO!!
But in this case not from Jay-Z but from The Rub.

As per my previous post Rub-A-Dub-Dub, 3 DJs in a Club, I was looking forward to seeing these DJ's play at Plan B.
I have only ever seen one third of their trio DJ Eleven DJ live before, and that is always a guaranteed good night out with my friends. So having the whole of The Rub in town was no exception.

We danced till our feet hurt, drank till we were merry and a good time was had by all. If this was a review, I would give it two giant thumbs up!! (or insert current slang term for good here)

However, they have now left our fair isle and headed for mainland Europe...booooo.(kidding)

But should anyone out there want to hear the handy work of The Rub, I would recommend:


If however, you cannot wait and want to hear The Rub now now now.... click here or here.

The Rub-a-dub dub, 3 DJs in a club...

Yipeee The Rub are in town on their European Tour. They are playing at Plan B in Brixton and I cannot wait.

The Rub is comprised of three DJs - Eleven, Ayres and Cosmo Baker and if their mixtapes are anything to go by, I know that tonight will be a good night.

So if you see these men - follow them as they will lead you straight to the party. Make sure you have your dancing shoes!!

Good friends, Good Music...what more could I ask for.
