Jamie Lidell Multiply

Thanking you for this most wonderful week, for your great, beautiful comments I give you the second part of this week’s Friday Break. Jamie LidellMultiply. A cute, funny, simple song, ageless and genreless.

Hope you’ll have the most amazing weekend yet, enjoy Jamie Lidell’s Multiply! (more info right after the jump!)

One of these days we’ll take a trip to England. There are too many things we love about that country (both me and my Adored Husband!) and I can’t hide it no more. Today’s song is another perfect example of English appeal. Jamie Lidell, original from England is based in Germany (Berlin) and performs as a one-man band since he records his voice and then the percussion and the rest himself.

He’s a soul man, maybe that’s why I like this Multiply song so much, because I haven’t heard it on Grey’s Anatomy soundtrack, where it was featured (simply coz I don’t watch that show). I just think it’s a beautiful tune, uplifting your spirit like a rainbow, adding color and sweetness.

Happy new week everyone hopes you all had a nice weekend like I had.
Kpriss, I’m so jealous you go to the UK! My favourite country for holidays…..sighs…..
The first time I’d set a foot on the UK’s ground I thought: I’m home. So strange. My ex-husband always found it always funny I became more posh than the people in the posh’ area we visited. Even with my speaking English :D
Plus I don’t needed to feel awkward about me being pale. A huge pré to me.

Oh yes, some English has such soulful voices like James Morrison and hear this….I’m known here as a rock-girl but I’m such a soul-girl too…..

Jamie lives in Berlin? Ah, a great city so full off energy of all kinds of arts……

Oh, I’m afraid I was dreaming too much when I wrote the article… It will happen, hopefully, in the nearest future. But I don’t see any possibility under 6 months, 1 year. So.. “one of these days” must be read as “one of these years” ;)

As for Berlin, I was never curious to see or feel it. I always found Germans and everything around them so cold and… straight. So you’ve seen Berlin also?

Aww, keep on dreaming that can be so nice….Have you ever been in the UK? I dream all the time to go back there. Ireland is even more beautiful and the Irish are such a fun. At least when I was there…

Yes, Germans……sighs……They can be rude though. And kinda superior. That’s hard for a Dutch that has been fed by her grandparents with hate towards the Germans. But of course not all of them are like that. On the country side the people are very friendly and it looks they vacuum clean their meadows lol! Austria is even more terrible hahaha….though Vienna is wunderschön.
Alas, I’ve never been in Berlin when the wall was still there. And life hasn’t become better for the “ossies” they’re never really accepted by the “wessies”. The last time I was in Berlin was like 2,5 years ago. It’s close by you see. It’s so lively, a lot of art, music, fashion you name it, it’s such vibrant city. It has an international vibe. And of course we here are more aware of the other European countries and what’s going on there.
I’ve always a good laugh when fashion people believe every woman in Paris in looks elegant! Hahaha…..no way. Yeah in certain area’s. But I guess the same goes for New York?

Diane Kruger is German Kpriss….

Ah, “der Deutsche grundlichheit” I think that’s what you mean. But how do I translate that properly?

Actually, I don’t dislike the Germans or Germany at all. I even love the language. It sounds in my Dutch ears kinda poetic. Germany is also the country of many wonderful artists of all sorts: great writers, film makers, designers etc. etc. Goethe and Mann, Romy Schneider, King Ludwig’s crazy but interesting castles, Rammstein (lol) many friendly people….a tad arrogant but not as rude as the French. Must be because the French doesn’t make any effort to help you out as a foreigner. They keep on speaking French and act irritating. The Dutch and Germans can understand each other if we try and we do that although the languages grammar is very different.

I sincerely hope that “Inglourious Basterds” shall not again bring back “nazi-hate and jokes”….I’ve noticed yet such things. WWII is too long ago now….I do dislike my German neighbour in this building but that’s not because she’s German….no, no…
I wonder if I’m gonna like that film. I’m really curious. I dislike the trailer and Tarantino’s remark that ‘this is the best film about nazies ever”…right…

There’s a good reason artists love to live in Berlin because it’s an inspiring city.
