What's Happening Brother
And so Delrico Bandito enters the terrible twos. Well, it did several days ago, to be quite honest, but I forgot to mention it. I'm still enjoying writing here, and I hope you enjoy reading it too. I was caught in a conversation between dancefloor action at London Loves in Soho on Saturday night. A brand new friend was explaining how he felt that Blogs and MySpace were an exhibition of people's inner desire to be celebrities. To be famous and to gain attention. Maybe he has a point! I'm not sure.
I don't have any particular desire for fame, it must be said. (I've been close enough to fame to see both sides, and quite frankly, you can keep it.) Sure, this takes a certain level of self importance. Yet... if people don't want to read this, they don't have to. I do it for my own amusement, although it's always great to have your comments. I like writing funny things, or sharing my love for cool things like great records or films or books or whatever, that'll hopefully brighten up the lives of someone else, and give the artists some much need recognition!
And in this vein, i think it's about time for a nice list of songs that are filling my brain with joy this evening. Eclectic as ever, but I'm feeling in a pretty dopey, soulful mood, so I guess they all share that. Yeah, even the emo! Heheh.
