Contrary to Popular Belief, Best of Lists are HARD OK?

A bit difficult to do 'Best of '09' considering the blog's only been running for a year and furthermore I have the musical (and otherwise) attention span of a thimble. But here goes...

Best/Lol Moments of 2009:
-Telling Riva Starr to collaborate with my mum
-Fucking up Ellen Allien's room w/ a gaggle of girls
-Having Heidi laugh inappropriately at someone's broken arm on the phone
-Giving Keytars/Violins my balloon when he inevitably was too wasted to give it any love or care
-Being asked to interview Kitsune in Paris & being taken to lunch by their lovely press guy
-Making it in Curb Crawlers' Top 5 Blogs of 2009 list for NCAK & Slutty Fringe

Best Tracks?
No. I'm not doing that, it's as near impossible as 'a girl sticking an octopus up her genitals' (See Running Ponies).

Best Labels?
Sorry Turbo, after years of my enduring love and devotion I think you've been topped by Wolf + Lamb, Sound Pellegrino and Tartelet this year and woop at the newer Get Physical stuff

Best Album/Compilations:
Jamie Jones innit, and le Dixon Temporary Secretary Edits were super
Best Remix:
Um.. maybe Alland Byallo's Gold Daytons remix of Soul Clap. So good.

If You Muffle Your Ears Slightly It Almost Sounds Like 'Jingle Bells'

...when you listen to Inxec - Alright from the Matt 90's house Tolfrey and Inxec EP 'Even in Hollywood'. Y'know.. all the same key elements of upbeat (Chicago) festiveness are there.

And even more so for an aptly named A Black Elf by Lucio Aquilina with tinkling bells aplenty for CHRISTMAS DAY.
A blog is for life, not just for 364 days of the year.

Ever since his vocals were used in the wonkier-than-thou Claude VonStroke tracks I haven't been able to get him out of my mind-

Bush Doctors vs Bootsy Collins - Disciples of Funk
Because aren't we all.

Ame - Setsa is a wonderful clangy number, like a string quartet stumbling into a cowshed.
Dixon dunna edit of it in his Temporary Secretary Mix, though you may want to check out the B-side Ensor.

And if you want to get freaked out by a grinning one-eyed loon a bit too close to those fucking freaky things in the Vauxhall advert - check out the video for the French creative collective Masomenos' Juhuu.
