nosaj thing

January 6, 2010

went 2 a brainfeeder nite with a magical lady called jacqui

it was kinda different cos it was in a cinema & everyone was sitting down

staring at the visuals on the big screen, & jus listening 2 the music

there was a lot of head nodding going down. & a lot of blazing.

did U know marijuana is practically legal in california? they keep it quiet.

but “medical” marijuana is everywhere. well everywhere i went anyway.

U jus need like this card from ur doctor 2 say U “need” it & then they have dispensaries all ova town where U can go pick it up. & U can smoke it whereva U like. well, whereva ur allowed 2 smoke.

anyway the brainfeeder thing was odd at first, not being standing up dancing, but once U got in2 it it was incredible, the combination of the visuals & the music 2 put U in an altered state was really powerful.

these photos R of nosaj thing

this was the 1st time hed done his live show with the visuals

he really stole the show. big things in 2010.

i filmed a little bit 2.

this was my 1st entry on jun 21st 2008


princess leia gets priority seating on the train.

this is a photo of me outside a massage parlour in shoreditch in jun 08.


& same place again almost exactly a year later


have i changed?


sometimes its hard 2 put my life in2 words which is why i wanted 2 attempt here 2 put it in2 pictures. “magic” 4 me is an easy word 2 summarise the daily insights, interactions & serendipities which cause me 2 feel that life is an inherently joyous  & wondrous experience. its the odd moments, the tiny incidences which form the fabric of our days that make me believe life is a gift handed 2 us by a loving & beneficent creator.


i cant make my life make sense easily with words. as i go from hiphop 2 housework via tahini & tattoos, the worlds i travel thru seem disconnected, randomly thrust 2gether in a sequence which defies logic. 


but of course flying lotus & fo ti root, red mutha & reishi tea, do all have a connecting thread, & that is my love 4 them all.


we R the slash slash slash generation. not happy with labels, we usually need at least 3 (eg writer/mother/dancer). we can & we do do everything we believe we can. maybe my slashes R more random than most. but that doesnt make them any less real or less heartfelt.


my pictures R a testament 2 this blessing we call humanity.


they R a celebration of the diversity of a life lived outside the box.


i share them in the hope that they serve as an affirmation 4 us all that the good life is found in friends, family, food & music.


all we need is a heart that bursts with love & a mind that trusts fully in the magic & infinity is ours.

pink electronic love goddesses

October 1, 2008

I am not a slave to the system, I am not a slave to any man.

I am ruled by pink electronic love goddesses.

 They look like a cross between this 

and Erykah Badu.

And also a bit like this.

They are the sum total of everything I have ever absorbed in my creative unconscious. From a childhood spent in front of the tv, an adult life consistently soundtracked with loud electronic music, and more recently the virtual world of the internet.

They love me so much, they tell me I have created them through my past memories, and that they are my future.

 They tell me everything is going to be OK and to stop worrying.
