MY FIRST DIGITAL AUTOGRAPH
I attended to the last concert of Natalia Lafourcade’s Mujer Divina Tour, it was held in the Teatro Diana in Guadalajara, México.
It was fabulous to hear it was so well mixed, I was on the upper right side of the stage and could detect very few sounds missing.
The show was fun, the musicians good, her clothes, hair and the overall aspect of all was reminiscent of a 1940’s México City’s cabaret. She was very talkative and when singing ‘Aventurera’ invited people to go up the stage and dance with her. I was mesmerized! She was very happy about the people’s response and asserted that the public didn’t come up on stage on every place she played “They’re embarrased or something”. How could anyone help but get up there and evoke the official video for that song with her? I wonder.
Before singing ‘Azul’ she invited us to leave our comfort zone and open up to life, in a beautiful, meaningful, impressive way. To this day, her words linger.
After the concert I met Natalia, a lovely, thin, beautiful, kind woman who I didn’t seem to get my thoughts about how to greet her straight: -Just hug me!- she said. I almost broke her I think, I was so effusive. We all talked about the concert, and had a drink. Then I got my phone out and on a screenshot of ‘Look outside’ playing, I asked her to give me her autograph.
-Just using your finger as a pencil… -I replied.
-How odd! - she then fastly signed.
It is my first digital autograph and, by the look of it all, maybe also hers.
An audio recording of the concert below, ENJOY.
Natalia Lafourcace: Mujer Divina en Vivo
Last concert of the Mujer Divina Tour, held at the Teatro Diana in Guadlajara, México.
Apparently sometimes I don’t watch the news, cuz I’m a kid.
I particularly enjoy the peace that the guy with the yellow socks emanate.
I made this because I felt an urge.
I’ve been asleep for a while. I’ve woken up.

Mario Vargas Llosa interviewed by The Dentist.
The first few minutes of this audio are a brief interview to my master Mario Vargas Llosa, it also contains recordings from the intimate press conference he gave, the book launch of ‘The discrete hero’ and the dialogue he held with David Grossman.
Boy have I read, watched and listened to Goldfrapp interviews.
I started following them about seven years ago. They were finished touring Supernature and working on who knows what kind of album. It was all secrecy and specullation.
The other day I found by chance a beautiful interview that dates about a year before that, they sound relaxed and happy and pretty much at home with the interviewer, dear fellow Dan Kramer, who I contacted and he thought propper to send me the audio file that made me so happy.
In this interview they go back on a trip down memory lane and explain some of the inside rare details of many tracks rarelly spoken of.
You can enjoy this jewel HERE.
As for Dan, thank you fellow! Thanks a lot!
Moenia - Ni tú ni nadie
One ot the best videos ever. Alaska,from Fangoria said to be very fond of this version of her hit song, due to the fact that it is different than the original, therefore a version, not a cover.
Lovely, motivating, funny video.
Hello Again - Record
I found by chance this short film that depicts how various people live in different ways the same piece of music. Made by the Lincoln Company in an iniciative that asks artists to re-imagine the familiar into new and exciting.
I personally felt identified and experienced a strong flashback to my childhood, watching my grandfather treat his vynils with devotion.
I thpught it was utterly genius to place the camera in the spinning vynil, that sole thing earns this short a place in the rank of The Best Videos Ever.
Straight out of the oven, the performance of Goldfrapp on today’s emission of Later… with Jools Holland:
Goldfrapp - Annabel
This song is about a novel of the same name versing on a girl trapped in the body of a boy, Alison expresses her believe we can be more than ONE thing in so many aspects of life, sexuality being one of them, in this song and the film that acompannies it.
