the weekend wrap up...

aah hola amigos! I am off to Barcelona tomorrow for my homomoon so normal service will be interrupted for the period of one week :) However I shall return and leave you with a few snippets to peruse while I am gone:


who doesn't love more civil partnership photos! here are a few more that we got given this week and that I really like...i'm still in that annoying stage where i am not tired of showing people pics even though they are tired of seeing them ;) This one above I think really captures Darren's personality!


I just LOVE these two pics above - i think they both represent what the day was about - darren and I legally being able to come together and all our friends and family having a great time :) Sigh...


I heard a couple of songs from Leigh Nash this week who used to be the vocalist in Sixpence None The Richer. I still never get sick of Kiss Me and think she has such a calming melodic tone to her vocals... Her solo sound isn't a million miles from the sound she perfected with her band, but the track posted below so fits my summery romantic mood right now that I just had to share it. Imagine a sunny day in a park or on a beach listening to this with your "special beau"... Now just grab the one you love and shimmy...

MP3: My Idea of Heaven

(check out her myspace site for a free download of the gorgeous She Is Like A Swallow)


I wrote about this band not so long ago here but the track Monster has really grown on me and is turning into one of those anthems that soundtrack your summer like I Predict A Riot was last year... Their debut album is now available to listen to on their myspace site and isn't too shabby. I love this acoustic version of Monster here - i think it gives the song a certain urgency and seeps into your brain and refuses to let go...

MP3: Monster acoustic

Why The Modern are taking forever to release what could be a stunning debut album is beyond me. Sure they haven't set the charts alight, but neither did The Upper Room and they released their marvy album shortly after the second single. Surely we are long overdue for the release of this album?? Here is a low quality but not too bad mp3 of their Human League meets Modern English new single Seven Oceans, which was just great live earlier this year...

MP3: Seven Oceans

Finally, here is the Jordan/Deborah duet Say Goodbye which i posted about a couple of days ago. I love it when Deborah taps the lower register of her voice, which she also did on her single last year Naked... Jordan has already had an ac hit this year so I am hoping this will follow it...And as a bonus a new recording of her 1989 number one hit Lost InYour Eyes...

MP3: Say Goodbye

MP3: Lost In Your Eyes 2006 acoustic version

See you in a week!

    Okay... hold the phone! Who's the hottie in the picture below you two?

    Aw, "Kiss Me" will always remind me of spring 1999, during those strange, scary months before I moved to L.A.

    Actually, it'll also remind me of the following 6 or 7 years, too, since it's pretty much on all AC stations at any given time... or playing in the grocery store... or in grandpa's secret dungeon.

    Leigh Nash is a religious chick isn't she?

    Anyway, HOW did you get the new Modern song. We must talk sources...

    Did you also get "Questions"?

    Have a FAB trip to Barcelona - I still owe you an email...

    oops update! That Modern MP3 sounds like when I used to hold a tape recorder up to a radio many a year ago! Talk about bootleg...

    Barcelona? Honeymoon?

    Is that where all the gays are going?

    It's where me and Future Husband are going for ours too. In just over a week...

    Small world.

    it certainly seems like all the gays are in barcelona at the moment. you can´t walk down the street without running into some muscly dude in a too tight tank top. oh the alliteration!

    i am disappointed with my first attempts at hacking myspace by hooking up my mp3 player (which also records sound) to the computer. It does sound pretty weak :( Boohoo. According to the website it should have come out crystal clear. it certainly didn´t. But it will do for now ,)

    the hottie is my good friend Leona´s new fella Ryan. And what a super bloke he is...

    see you soon folksies!
