Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears – Edgar Allan Poe.
And so it is that this video from French record label and digital art-mongerers, Stellar Kinematics, caused me to have the tears pertaining to that which I find beautiful. This clip is raw from Camera E-8 on the launch umbilical tower/mobile launch program of Apollo 11, July 16, 1969. This is an HD transfer from the 16mm original. More at http://www.spacecraftfilms.com/. Music by Dusty Brown – This City Is Killing Me.

It’s a beautiful day in London today, and I recommend an audio garnish of Medicine 8’s suitably uplifting remix of their own recent signing, Glass Diamond. Courtesy of the London-based duo’s Trashmouth Records and available as a digital-only release on June 3rd, Girls & Boys is doubtless the sweetest Disco-infused portent of Summer you’re likely to hear. Please enjoy irresponsibly.

Hello. Eclect Elect has returned after a lengthy absence consisting of house move, lack of internet and lovely dog adoption. More information on the great life event that is finally adopting ones own dog will surely follow, but for now I offer you some celebratory music and dancing courtesy of Tommy Four Seven/ The29Nov Films and Funki Porcini/ Luis Buñuel. Enjoy!

Recently, reader, I was found to be miserable and complaining about the godawful trials of trying to relocate oneself in London. Today, however, I can happily report that my persistence has paid off and I’ll soon be moving to an uncannily suitable flat with two gardens and permission to realise my life-long dream of canine companionship (note: not that which is pictured above as that is Eames’ Case Study House #8, here not for its socio-architectural importance, but illustrative dream home purposes.) My rather particular criteria was further met by total lack of carpet (I don’t like carpet and I can’t stand to touch it as it makes me feel like I feel when I think about the process of dry cleaning i.e. most peculiar,) bath with shower over (I like to rinse) and a private entrance (my entrance is not something I like to share.)
In honour of this great event, Nic Stark of All The Pieces Matter has very kindly made a flatwarming mix just for me (please see below for the tracklist.) Aren’t I a lucky girl, eh? So it’s a big thank you to Nic for marking this fortunate event with the joyous gift that is music, and it’s a big thank you to me for all the dedicated hard work I put in that has finally paid off (well done, me!) And if this isn’t the winter of my discontent, I expect you can refer to me, permanently, as Fifi ‘D-Fens’ Wilson.
