This is what has been on my mind today. 

  • A situation where the only natural answer is "That's true": People who pause mid-sentence because they've just, accidentally, rhymed. They pause just to say: "Hey, that rhymes." 

  • Annoying thing: People who talk during movies don't annoy me. People who talk during the previews do. I love previews.

  • Eternal question: Is it just me or does NOBODY know what MacGyver's first name is?

  • People who are secretly into S&M: People who own boats. Congratulations, you just paid money to live uncomfortably. Absolutely sadistic.

  • Coolest 38-year old: h.o.v.a, hands down. 

  • Lamest nickname: Pharrell Williams AKA "Skateboard P". 

  • General wondering: Who's the worst at living up to their last name, Jack Black or Barry White?

  • Would you rather: Know that you were destined to marry a russian shotputter or have every third dog try to hump your leg?
  • Most ironic performance 2007: Nelly Furtado at the Diana memorial concert, singing "Maneater". Snap.

Ryanair is special.

Don't get me wrong, I love the concept of ryanair. And I know that it's really 20th century to make fun of airplanes/airports. But one thing does annoy me. The fact that you, nowadays, have to turn of your ipod on take-off and landing. That's a solid half an hour of listening to babies crying, people chatting about n'importe de quoi and the music from the guy next to me who has decided to ignore the non-ipod rule. Actually, I'm that guy. I really can't take the ipod-threat seriously and if that means that I'm putting your life at stake, I'm truly sorry. I feel that it's a bit ridiculous to claim that 200 lives, sitting inside of a machine that costs 10 million dollars, are in jeopardy because I'm listening to "I feel like a child" by Devendra Banhart. Pete Doherty would never shut his ipod off during his flight, neither shall I.

Also, I feel like sharing my favourite airplane-tunes with you. Keep in mind that this is not a "travel-playlist", simply because these songs are optimized for airplaines, nothing else. Hence, they're airplane tunes. Basically, songs that make me want to pop the emergency exit open, sinply because the fuzzy clouds would shield us all from harm. Or something like that.

Alan Braxe & Fred Falke - Love lost
Hot chip - The warning
Daft punk - Verdis quo
Ratatat - Wildcat
The knife - You make me like charity
Coldplay - The scientist
The postal service - Sleeping in
Norah Jones - Sunrise
The cure - Close to me
Led zeppelin - Stairway to heaven
Air - La femme d'argent
Why? - Sanddollars
Nouvelle vague - Love will tear us apart
Enya - Caribbean blue
Röyksopp - Why else is there?(Live)
Kings of convenience - Cayman islands

I know what you're thinking and no, I'm not gay.

p.s anything with The studio is also excellent flight-music.

The ghost of Fred Falke.

I am now about to tell you something that might shock you. It will be difficult to grasp, you might need to sit down. Here it is: I really don't think Fred Falke is real. As in I don't think Fred Falke is a real person. I think he is actually Thomas Bangalter.

If you think about it, Fred Falke is never booked anywhere. Have you ever seen or heard of a DJset featuring Alan Braxe and Fred Falke, even though they pretty much produce each other all the time. The Upper Cuts is widely acknowledged to be brilliant, containing amazing tracks such as Rubicon, Intro, Music Sounds Better With You and Love Lost. Another thing that strikes me as a bit odd is the fact that Alan Braxe, despite their close relationship, does not have Fred Falke among his top friends on Myspace. In my opinion, since the "top friends" of famous DJ's are kind of a big deal, that's weird. Also, if you search "Fred Falke" on Wikipedia, you get a direct link to Alan Braxe.

So where does Thomas come into the picture? He is known to be a fan of Braxe, he co-produced "Music sounds better with you"(what's to stop him from sectretly co-producing the whole album?) and another important fact being that Alan Braxe is on Bangalters record label "Roule". Since the commercial style of Daft Punk is eerily close to Braxe's and Falke's music, the leap wouldn't be THAT big, would it?

If you google-image Fred Falke, this is the only relevant picture that comes up:

"Hi, we need a generic french-looking guy to stand next to Alan Braxe in a picture."
"Ask one of the guys at McDonalds."

And that's what they did.

p.s Heath Ledger is another proof of the fact that all you have to do is die, then people will realize what a genious you are. Never mind the fact that Ledger was in like two good movies during his whole career. Kill Christian Bale, then talk. Oh, R.I.P, Heath.

Super-Mario Bros before Hoes

Don't get me wrong, I love Super Mario. Of course, he is fat and obnoxious but who isn't, right? Well, I'm not. At least not fat. Anyways, while playing the exquisite masterpiece that is Super Mario Bros 3, I came to some conclusions. To save you all some time, I can tell you right now that none of them are coherent, nor are they relevant.

The person who spawned the whole concept for this game was, without a doubt, high on some form of illegal substances. Take the significance of the Mushroom in the game. A mushroom makes you big, it gives you life, your little helper has a mushroom HAT(this being exhibit #1. Why the fuck does he wear a mushroom hat?) etc etc. We all know that in real life, all mushrooms do is give your dog a rash.

I mean seriously, if you saw someone who looked like this, what would you say that he's just been up to?

A. Done drugs
B. Escaped from a mental institution
C. Gotten a blow-job from Orlando Bloom

Ghazal just walked in and she is bothering me, I can't concentrate. I might have to actually play the game instead. I'll update you shortly.
