It's Friday . . . Let's Dance

I've been a little distracted lately. too much going on in my head, hence the lack of content and the brevity of recent posts. I think that things may get back to normal soon.

I've got a couple of days off, as yesterday was Lanimer Day, our town's equivalent of a Gala Day, I was going to rant on about this and the underlying feudalism of the whole day but I won't bother.

Anyway, I'm taking M to see the Doctor Who exhibition at Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow today. I think that I may be looking forward to it more than M. "Will Rose be there?" he asked this morning to which I could only reply " If only M, if only".

As it is Friday, it's time for a dance. Today's track Weak Become Heroes by The Streets sums up beautifully how those early days of raving felt, the optimism and positivity of the whole scene before the gangsters and the bad pills took over. Ashley Beadle houses things up somewhat on the remix posted here.

If it's the same Dr Who exhibition I took my two tots to see at Olympia it is fab, my youngest was scared to go anywhere the stone angel - and the final part before you leave gabe me goosepimples it was so good.

The original to this is one of my all-time favourite tracks - loses its lovely melancholy with this mix a bit, but a hunk of House is always nice of a Friday, so who's complaining?

PS: I'm more of a River Song man myself.

Your comments are spot on. This is my favourite mix. I like the way that the melancholy lyrics mix with the housey-housey music.
