Do you think you’re lucky? It’s Friday the 13th!

OK, so you resisted the temptation to stay in bed and call in sick to avoid anything “bad” happening. Especially today being Friday the 13th. So, given that you went about your normal activities, does that mean that you don’t believe in it? Hmm, strange how people react to this day, some are waiting for something to happen, for the day to be over, for something lucky to “happen” to them. What are you hoping for? Continue reading

Musical taste in times of recession

OK so we’re blaming everything on the recession and you can’t but help add to the long list of what’s gone wrong. However, how has this changed our partying styles?

In times of trouble, people generally seek comfort in various things. Albeit a huge slice of cake/the whole cake, another six pack of your favourite amber nectar or nuzzling your head between two firm erm “pillows”. Mostly it’s doing something that’s familiar, something you know won’t hurt you, something you feel comfortable with and that you like. So this has resulted in the two options, stay in or go out. So nothing has changed there, or has it?

In the UK, many of the supermarkets have latched on to that and are offering a meal in for two, or if you are single – a meal that will keep in the fridge for tomorrow 😉 If you choose to go out, in times of hardship you want something familiar, something safe.

So if you are an aspiring DJ with hopes of becoming the next Tiesto or Swedish House Mafia (I love them) you may find that people are going to be requesting “hair brush” hits instead. They won’t even care if you are mixing four different 128 bpm songs seamlessly with a couple of awesome loops. It reminds them of a time earlier on when everything was cool, they know all the words and want to get smashed singing Belinda Carlisle’s – Heaven is a place on Earth!

I like to keep things simple but…

Is this taking the “cake” literally!?

Bought Cadbury’s chocolate cake today, open up the box then noticed the serving suggestion… Wait for it, the cake was sliced and on a plate! Can’t get more simple that! Thank goodness I saw the serving suggestion… Genius, now why didn’t I think of slicing it and putting it on a plate! Haha!
