Thailand- Same, Same... But Different.

To be honest, the music in Thailand was tacky and irritating at best. So I pick this one, the final song played at Lotus Bar, Koh Tao on each and every night.
Beach mats, candles, beer... and Miss American Pie.

In Bangkok, we put our lives in the hands of a man I fondly refer to as 'Death Tuc'. He rode his tuc-tuc like a true Hell's Angel and actually mowed over a motorcyclist during our journey.
We just had time to exchange an awkward glance with the poor motorcyclist at our feet before Death Tuc was off again, leaving him in dust.

So yes, we were involved in a Hit-and-Run.

India- "Ami Tomake Bhalobashi"

As for the song, well it wouldn't be right if it weren't 'Desi Girl'. Click here for a mooch (WARNING! cheesy dancing IS compulsory.)

As for a memory. Well, here's one

About Time

So here's the thing:

One country.
5 photos. 1 song. 1 memory.

I haven't had a chance to blog any of my 'Around the World' photography, and seeing as it took up a year of my life, how about some now?!

Brutha for a Sista

Continuing along the Neo- Soul vibe I got goin on, I bring you a Brutha.

D'Angelo and Erykah are two sides of the same coin, except she is of a sound mind and D'Angelo, well,
Crackin bod though.
'Brown Sugar' is always a classic, but it goes without saying 'Untitled' takes the whole damn cookie jar...
Guys, embrace your inner Mo and drool over this baybay:

Neo- Soul is the New Black...

Okay, so I'm not ashamed to say I've been struggling for posts lately... My FMP work will appear in a few weeks so as a nice filler for now, how bout some SOUL?

I know you got it.

Erykah Badu. She got style. She got lyrics. She got HAIR mayn. And dang has she got some soul too.
Dis gurl hawt.

If you haven't heard then hear it here goddammit, she's been around for too long! Hard to pick a fave but Soldier can get it.

Also, her latest vid made everyone sit up and hear. Cuz when all else fails, nudity wins.

Girl, do some ho shit!

Last week I headed down to Henley-on-Thames to spend a week with Bridget and co. at Barn Galleries, to set in the ground work for Artspace. Hectic week full of painters, sculptors and fussy ceramicists. I got to hang pretty paintings, boss people around and play with awesome jewellery. Oh, and drink Pimms. Need i go on?
In my element.
I've come back home exhausted and excited, ready to crack on with my own work...

Speaking off, I'm in week 8 of my 10 week project.
The next few weeks shall be grim...
