Thought Bubble Afterparty Playlist 2013
Another year, another Thought Bubble Afterparty. There’s enough of us involved in the music now that our sets are down to half an hour each, which seems to go in seconds. Always great fun, though.
Thanks to me forgetting my laptop and so having to recreate a set in the hotel room just beforehand, and the aforementioned half hour slot, I wasn’t really able to pay attention to anything like build, so just played a bunch of songs I liked and wanted to dance to. Seemed to go down alright.
David Bowie - Modern Love
Sugababes - Freak Like Me
Tegan and Sara - Closer
Skee-Lo - I Wish
Chairlift - I Belong In Your Arms
Chvrches - I Would Die 4 V
Neneh Cherry - Buffalo Stance
Summer Camp - Alright
Here’s the Spotify playlist, with one substitute. The Chvrches cover of Prince has never been released - they were kind enough to send me the mp3 so I could play it - so I included the original Prince version. There’s a live version of their take knocking around online, too.
Oh god a sudden flashback to some extraordinarily enthusiastic dancing to Buffalo Stance, with the grace and aplomb of said herd animal.
The Thought Bubble party was AMAZING. I embarassed myself probably about 99% of the time for a good, ooh, eight hours. I apologise for anyone who encountered/spoke to/saw/was trodden or sat on by me.
So many reasons to hate Shark Week but it does have some undeniable up front benefits.
More pugs, as promised! Gladys (the black one) is Pixie (the white one)’s mum. Both are regular models for Mulberry and help out with fundraising for Dog’s Trust. They have their own twitter feed over at @GladysAndPixie.
MES does not like dogs.
Kat is doing Mark E Smith and His Falls over on One Week One Band. Solid pug coverage today.
Hank/Doombot 4ever (Avengers AI #6, Sam Humphries, Valerio Schiti and Frank D’Armata)
Anyway so Red She-Hulk was a pretty great series
Dear @ThoughtBubbleUK attendees — if I gave you the ZERO issues that have notes all over them, please let me know. These are the issues with a TON of my outline notes for the future issues and I would very much appreciate having them with me again. You will be compensated, of course.
It’s Monday morning, and you know what that means! That most of us have to go back to work. And, I suppose, that Curia Regis has updated: whatido.co.uk
Just a reminder for those in the UK that I’m at Thought Bubble in Leeds this weekend, along with Kate. You can find me on table 116, and her just kitty corner to me on table 115. We’ll both have our new third books along, so if you’re in the area and fancy a copy, stop on by!
Super annoyed that I somehow missed Robin at Thought Bubble! I blame being very hungover. (Hey guys let me tell you staying up until 4am in the hotel lobby might seem like a great idea but that R Kelly probably pays people to get a train home for him the next day so what the hell would he know)
(Also can we all agree never to drink Veltins again)
(And DEFINITELY never drink a lot of 6% Brewdog somethingorother at 2:30am in lieu of water because the bar is out of everything else)
ANYWAY. Life advice aside- Robin’s comic is v good.
‘Of The Night’ by Bastille
It’s LOVELY BASTILLE covering RHYTHM OF THE NIGHT with RHYTHM IS A DANCER it’s like when Timbaland put that bit of You Keep Me Hangin’ On into The Way I Are except 9000% more mimsy and I REALLY LIKE IT.
