Quiet Week.

Friday, November 04, 2005

This has been a very quiet week. I've just been making the gallery rounds, seeing what's going on. I met this one gallery owner who's got a space right near my flat, this cool black guy. They show this weird, minimal art. The last show had a window blind that was painted white and was selling for 5000 EUR (almost 6000 USD).

You can see why I'm trying to move sideways into this gallery thing.

Nothing planned later except going to see Dave Tarrida and Cristian Vogel tonight at Raumklang. Should be a few familiar faces there. I haven't been out just to hang out in awhile.

I was walking down the street yesterday in Kreuzberg and ran into Lars, a.k.a. Pacou. Berlin is crazy like that. Techno City.

The "It's Not Over" double CD and vinyl is out now on Tresor. It's got my first new 4/4 track in quite some time on it, "The After Hours." I'm on the CD version, though, not the vinyl.

I've been playing "'Bout to Bang It" out lately, the original version, not the remixes. People have been into it. I spent a lot of time second-guessing myself musically (especially when I was in Detroit, surrounded by people who want to put you down), but I find there's nothing wrong with the way I was making tracks. When I get back in the studio, it'll be back to basics.

I was watching this talk show on TV and they had Kim Cattrall ("Sex and the City") on there. Who knew she spoke German? I was very surprised. Sandra Bullock speaks German, too. And Jane Fonda was on French TV when I was there, speaking French fluently.

I might take a German class next year. I'm really missing out.

Also on the TV tip, I was watching the MTV Europe Awards last night. Gorillaz won Best Band. They're a bunch of cartoon characters and they beat U2 and Coldplay. I'd be pissed if I were them.
