NEW ORDER
“Temptation”

listen

Oh, you’ve got green eyes
Oh, you’ve got blue eyes
Oh, you’ve got grey eyes
And I’ve never seen anyone quite like you before
No, I’ve never met anyone quite like you before

Heaven, a gateway, a hope
Just like a feeling I need, it’s no joke
And though it hurts me to see you this way
Betrayed by words, I’d never heard, too hard to say
Up, down, turn around
Please don’t let me hit the ground
Tonight I think I’ll walk alone
I’ll find my soul as I go home

Each way I turn, I know I’ll always try
To break this circle that’s been placed around me
From time to time, I find I’ve lost some need
That was urgent to myself, I do believe
Oh, you’ve got green eyes
Oh, you’ve got blue eyes
Oh, you’ve got grey eyes
And I’ve never seen anyone quite like you before
No, I’ve never met anyone quite like you before
Bolts from above hurt the people down below
People in this world, we have no place to go
Oh, it’s the last time
Oh, I’ve never met anyone quite like you before
Oh no, I’ve never met anyone quite like you before

I just read about the crazy sultry world of Christa Helm. Someone needs to make a movie about her eccentric life. Read her story on the From the Books of Exlibris blog

Detroit 2009: Day 3.5
06.12.09 | No Comments

Sunday night was the only night we had a “night off” from throwing parties at Oslo. Bryan was booked to open the all night acid house party No Way Back produced by Interdimensional Transmissions.  I was wonderful to meet our lovely party hosts Brendan (from Ectomorph) and Amber.  All night (and morning ) we were blessed with awesome tunes from Spinoza, Derek, Plaslaiko, BMG, I.B.M., Mike Servito, Chuck Hampton, Carlos Souffront, Patrick Russell, and Traxx.  Yet, the best part was hanging out in the lounge at the early morning hours with a my silly wasted Detroit/Brooklyn tachno family.


We were the first people to arrive and I took this photo of Derek Plaslaiko while they were setting up.

Detroit 2009: Day 2
06.04.09 | No Comments

On Saturday we ran into Clark Warner and his wife Liz Copeland at breakfast.  I finally met their adorable baby. A few hours later radio goddess and new mother Liz Copeland opened up the festival with a really lovely set of what she defines as baby listening music.  Melodies from Air and Brian Eno and other ethereal treasures consumed our ears, as ravers of all ages started to show up for the first day of the festival.  Other highlights of my day were killer sets from Nikola Baytala and Steve Bug.


Clark Warner and his baby in protective ear gear or maybe he is listening to death metal?

more candy ravers

At night we threw the Detroit version of House n Home (my flyer).  I finally had a chance to meet the lovely DJ Cassy.  Here is the fist shot I took of her.  She was all smiles during her amazing set. I wish more DJs smiled when I photographed them.

Detroit 2009: Day 1
06.04.09 | No Comments

It is always hard for me to sum up a trip. I have been going to Detroit every year for the past 4 years. This year was a bit different because we threw 3 parties at the beautiful dark wood lined club Oslo. So it was less of a rave vacation and it was more about working and party picture taking.

Our trip started out with a delicious techno family meal at Roast. I ate the best marinated smoked salmon ever to cross my lips. Chef Jeff made sure I had plenty to eat as everyone else munched on meaty treats like beef cheek and bone marrow.


Gratia, Eric, Jan

We ate like kings before The Bunker Detroit party with Jan Krueger, Derek Plaslaiko, Spinoza performing. I managed to take these photos in almost total darkness.


…and at the party I met this lovely celebrating couple that met exactly a year ago in Detroit

My dad found an old drink ticket from the 80s NYC club Danceteria and scanned it for me.  I always loved their logo and flyer designs.

Water into Wine

I always joke about the possibility of having Rose wine pouring out of a faucet in my house….

Wine flowing from Italian taps is hailed as a ‘miracle’
