Marina & The Diamonds – I Am Not A Robot (Starsmith 24 Carat Remix)
Here’s a not-so-oldie but totally goodie track. You’ve probably heard “I Am Not a Robot” before but this is my favourite remix. I think it’s the same version Prabal Gurung used to open his Fall 2010 runway show.
You’ve been acting awful tough lately. Smoking a lot of cigarettes lately. But inside, you’re just a little baby. It’s okay to say you’ve got a weak spot, you don’t always have to be on top. Better to be hated than loved, loved, loved for what you’re not.
You’ve been hanging with the unloved kids who you never really liked and you never trusted. But you are so magnetic, you pick up all the pins… never committing to anything. You don’t pick up the phone when it ring, ring, rings. Don’t be so pathetic, just open up and sing.
You know, I still feel terrible because I was supposed to see her perform in Brooklyn a few weeks ago but the friend I was gonna go there with backed out in the end. I didn’t wanna go there by myself so I ended up not going. Boo! Hiss!
I hope to see her next time.

What a very sad day. I don’t like receiving news like this so early in the morning. Another iconic British figure bites the dust. The amazing Malcolm McLaren passed away yesterday in Switzerland. He was 64.
Malcolm McLaren, an impresario, recording artist and fashion designer who as manager of the Sex Pistols played a decisive role in creating the British punk movement, died on Thursday in Switzerland. He was 64.
The cause was mesothelioma, a cancer of the linings around organs, said Young Kim, his companion of many years. She said he had been under treatment at a Swiss hospital. The couple had a home in Paris. — NY Times
While most will remember him as the Sex Pistol’s former manager or Vivienne Westwood’s ex-husband, I’ll forever remember him as an amazing artist. I always play his (very emotional, mind you) songs every time I need a jolt of inspiration. He’s one of the reasons why I love Paris so much.
Listen to La Main Parisienne or else I’m terminating our friendship STAT!
From Madame Butterfly to Deep in Vogue, as a tribute, let me share to you some of my other favourite tracks.
Although my taste in music is rather, how should I say, rather eclectic, I must admit I’m not really a big fan of top 40 tunes. I try to avoid them as much as I can. Some songs however are being played non-stop everywhere, akin to being delivered to my system via an IV drip.
Meet my latest obsession: Stefan Abingdon, Dru Wakely and Ashley Horne from the UK, also known on YouTube as “the Midnight Beast“. They made these bloody amazing parody videos of two of the top songs on the airwaves today: Tik Tok by Ke$ha…
… and Down by Jay Sean.
Fucking Hilarious! I love Tik Tok best.
It’s funny how these parody vids are so much better than the original tracks themselves, no?
Why do Brits produce the coolest music ever? IDGI.
Sing after me: Doubt, in it all for me… I’ve hit the wall, all that’s left for you is doubt. Better you than me, I’ve so far to fall. All that’s left for you is doubt, in it all for me, I’ve hit the wall. All that’s left for you is doubt, better you than me, I’ve so far to fall, but I can’t change now.
