Funny thing how one blinks and christmas trees pop up all over the city. Even in the dentist’s waiting room. But one definitely realizes that it’s already December-that’s when Scarlett shouts “almost” from the next room. Ok ok, ALMOST December then. God what’s that obsession with time- when people start wearing Christmas hats in the streets. One worse than the other. More exquisite is the contemplation of the plastic Santas hanging by a rope on people’s window. The question is how they did get there.’Hey honey, let’s buy a just-suicided-Santa for the kids, you know how much they love decorations’.
Anyway, it’s soon Christmas again.
But in the meantime tomorrow is the last 2011 show of Scarlett in Brussels before flying to Rome. And it’s a home concert. If you wonder what’s a home show like, it’s basically this. Without the dresses. And without the dancing. I feel it, you’ll love it.
Few days ago a friend of mine shares a -tell me what you listen to, I’ll tell you what to drink-site. I tell Scarlett about it. She tells me to piss off (as always, she’s in the middle of something and does not give a f… about new exciting discoveries online. She used to be fun though. She used to be fun). Ok then. So I go to Drinkyfy.com and type Scarlett O’Hanna. And there comes the verdict: ’Don’t listen to Scarlett O’Hanna alone. We suggest…The Scarlett O’Hanna: 1 oz. Chilli pepper Vodka, serve neat’. Seriously? I would have bet on something better, faster, strong… sorry. I mean I was expecting a cocktail delicate and strong at the same time, you know. And what if I want to listen to Scarlett alone eh? And what is that commanding tone about? Anyway, I decide to enter Dinosaur Jr instead and here’s something interesting: ‘Don’t listen to Dinosaur Jr. alone -see, that commanding tone again. I wonder if with friends over the music sounds better-. We suggest…THE DINOSAUR JR: 10 oz. Rum, Serve neat, stir vigorously, garnish with cocktail onions’. Oh boy. Not sure J. Mascis would have agreed with that either, a can of American beer would have been far more fair, and moreover, I can’t understand why there’s a ‘garnishing’ stage needed in the recipe.
There I had to bring myself to the conclusion that this site’s shit. All excitement had just jumped out the window. That just sounded like a status update by the way. If you have time and a surplus of faith or enthusiasm to get rid of, check : http://drinkify.org/
Meantime I will help Scarlett with her bubble-wrap popping.
It’s coming, it’s coming. Recorded in Brussels with Rudy Coclet, ‘IMPOSTOR’ will be digitally released on Itunes, Amazon, etc., like previous EP ‘Cheap Bling Bling’. Also, you will be able to listen to it on Deezer and Spotify. When? December 7.
Now then, let’s get into the mood.
so here we are eh, a new blog. More internet space for Scarlett, more links, more clicks and if we’re lucky, more drama . We decline to be responsible for the fun you might NOT have though as we are not promising you accurate news, entertainment or rainbows of joy. If your life is boring, it will stay boring even if you follow this blog. Now, if you have no interest or whatsoever in Scarlett O’Hanna, you can always send an email to ask for the cake recipe of the day.
Because anytime is cake time.
