The Reeling

by Passion Pit

We dug these holes we crawled into
Now they’re my home
Now here I cannot feel the wind
Can’t feel the rain nor cold
And I believe in gentle harmony
Oh, how I loath all this obscenity
Is this the way my life has got to be?
Have I a single opportunity?

Look at me
Oh, look at me
Is this the way I’ll always be?
Oh no!
And now I dream that somebody
Will swiftly come and kidnap me
Oh no!
And everyday I lie awake
And pray to god today’s the day
Oh no!
But here I am
Oh, here I am
Oh, when will someone understand?
Oh no!

And all at once I feel this
Oh, how it clings to me
It reels and calls me towards some
Confounding destiny
And I can feel the madness inch by inch
The more I run the more I am convinced
I’ve colored all these like the branches twist
Just like we settle in the frothy mist

How Long

by The Veronicas

Saturdays will never be the same
It’s even hard mentioning your name
Looking back, I don’t know what went wrong
But suddenly it’s like I don’t belong

So how long must I wait?
And how long must I stay?
Please let me know how to live
‘Cause I don’t ever wanna feel this way
Again

Nothing seems to matter anymore
Why can’t it be just like it was before?
I hate you for the person I’ve become
Take me back to where it all begun

So how long must I wait?
And how long must I stay?
Please let me know how to live
‘Cause I don’t ever wanna feel this way
Again

Let me know, how to live
Let me know

So how long must I wait?
And how long must I stay?
Please let me know how to live
‘Cause I don’t ever wanna feel this way
Again

Rendezvous

(This is one of the very few mornings I’ve woken up to a sleeping baby, so I thought I should take advantage of a rare opportunity while I still could.)

Hmmm… okay, no excuses today. I’ve been lazy. Busy, sure. But lazy. I don’t know what it is but I haven’t had much of an urge to stay committed to my wee, little blog lately. I used to be all over this thing. Maybe I was on some kind of mission to make myself heard. I dunno. Anyway, I wanna get back in it, I’ve just had other goings on eating up my precious little time.

Phoenix (the crazy baby from outer space) is looking absolutely, 100% per cent, completely and utterly adorable. He may drive us up the wall every single calendar day but he rocks our socks like no other. He’s got some kind of air about him that just sort of resonates something special (or maybe that’s just me being one damn proud mama). We’ve already taken him to the movies twice, by the pools around Treasure Island a few times, down to Boatswain’s Beach, over to my Aunt Barbara’s and envjoyed a sleepover at his grandparents. Been thinking about giving him his own little blog too, starting tomorrow, maybe, which marks his second month birthday anniversary (although he’s technically been eight weeks old since Thursday).


On the subject of blogs et cetera, I’ve also been secretly working on another Silky blog on the sly. One to accompany my Silky namesake on Second Life alone, chock full of way more electro (and nothing but electro) and all about the music and the scene online. Since I haven’t been able to spin for so long now, I’ve been training with Ableton Live in the hopes of getting back in the game with a much bigger, stronger arsenal of mad skills, if ya know what I mean. Ableton Live is simply amazing and there’s no arguing that but my shoddy excuse for a PC just isn’t cutting it anymore. (It’s survived numerous trials, so I can’t really knock Hypersonic for their uber-developed and souped-up Clevos.) So, I might be migrating my DJ business to the Mac for now.

In other news, I’m currently developing a small website for a client outside of Century 21 so if anyone asks, you heard nothing. Just a little something for Tortuga Rum Cake Co., nothing major but we could always do with a few extra funds.

I’ve been missing my friends. I guess D and I both have. Aside from frequent visits from my parents, we’re virtually alone on this island now. Just the three of us. And I’d like to say more about other persons that have recently entered our lives but it seems as though they may be slowly slipping out already. Oh, well. On with the show…

Tagoo

Looks like I just so happened to stumble upon another candidate for the ever-growing Guide To The Silky Way. Another fairly competent search engine worth mentioning and pretty fresh to the scene: Tagoo. Although nothing will ever compare to the now fabled beauty of SingingFish, Tagoo does a very decent job in delivering the goods, with advanced search features that allow you to peruse by artist, album, title, bitrate and even duration, while unnecessarily throwing in lots of bells and whistles. Results are typically generous but you might wince at the very occasional dead link. It’s Russian-based too, so it might even broaden your musical horizons a tad. Happy Hunting!

Fluffy Little Clouds

by The Orb

“What were the skies like when you were young?”

“They went on forever – They – When I – We lived in Arizona, and the skies always had little fluffy clouds in ‘em, and they were long, clear, and there were lots of stars, at night. And when it would rain, they would all turn – They were beautiful, the most beautiful skies as a matter of fact. Um, the sunsets were purple and red and yellow and on fire, and the clouds would catch the colors everywhere. That’s uh, neat cause I used to look at them all the time, when I was little. You don’t see that. You might still see it in the desert.”

MGMT, Design For Humanity

by Christina Scannapiego

MGMT ANNOUNCED TO PERFORM AT 2nd ANNUAL BILLABONG DESIGN FOR HUMANITY EVENT

dfh-event-mgmt.jpgBillabong USA has announced that electro-pop superstars MGMT will perform live at the 2nd Annual Design For Humanity event taking place June 4 at Hollywood hotspot, Avalon/Spider Club. Design for Humanity, Billabong’s charitable division, will benefit The Surfrider Foundation, an organization which strives to preserve our world’s oceans and beaches. 100% of ticket sale proceeds will go the The Surfrider Foundation.

Billabong’s 2nd Annual Design for Humanity event promises to be an unforgettable night of art, fashion and music, including a spectacular runway fashion show featuring one-of-a-kind celebrity designs, a photography and art exhibit and auction, a special live performance by MGMT, sounds by DJ Steve Aoki, and much more.

“This event is a labor of love for our brand,” says Candy Harris, Women’s Brand Director at Billabong. “It’s an opportunity for us to celebrate fashion, music and art all the while giving back to an organization that preserves our way of life.”

“This is an incredible melding of music, art, fashion and social responsibility,” says Surfrider Foundation CEO, Jim Moriarty. “We are honored to be named as beneficiaries for this year’s Billabong Design for Humanity event”

Design for Humanity will feature a full-scale runway show, where Billabong fashion and swimsuit pieces will be showcased on the catwalk, with one-of-a-kind collaborations from celebrities like Amber Valetta, Joy Bryant, and Charlotte Ronson. Pieces from this rare collection will be auctioned off on eBay, with all proceeds going directly to the charity.

Billabong’s collaborations with LA industry icons Lisa Kline and Jenny Han, who have created signature limited edition swimsuits for Cruise 2009, will be also be featured in the show. These pieces will be available at retailers nationwide. In addition to the celebrity and designer collections, exclusive t-shirts for Urban Outfitters designed by cultural icon Cory Kennedy will be available with proceeds from all collections benefitting The Surfrider Foundation.

Before the fashion show begins, guests can head to the Avalon’s Spider Club, for the art exhibit and auction which will feature works by well-known industry artists, like Wolfgang Bloch and Chris Jordan, as well as world-renowned surf photographers. Each piece will be auctioned off on eBay and bidding will begin the evening of the event. Three limited-edition posters will also be available for sale at the event and online.

After the fashion show, the party begins with a rock concert by music sensations and fan-favorites MGMT, and DJ sounds by Steve Aoki, one of LA and NY’s hottest and most in-demand DJ’s. MGMT has quickly climbed the charts and is one of the most unique and celebrated sounds on the indie music scene today.

Misadventures Of A Vagrant T-Girl

There's plenty fun to be had. From the Cayman Islands, to London, to Phoenix and back again, Silky's been there, done that. But life's for the living and I ain't dead yet. Making vegans look cool, trannies sound sexy and delivering shit hot Electro is my deal. Loving my beautiful wife, nurturing my baby boy Phoenix and making my small mark on this jaded world of post-consumerism is my mantra. Friends, welcome. Guests, indulge. There's plenty fun to be had.
