Flight Facilities @ The Hoxton

Caught Flight Facilities at The Hoxton last Friday (October 19th) with M, A & F. They're a pair of Australian DJs/producers. In contrast to the Brodinski & Gesaffelstein concert earlier this year, I bought my ticket for this a month in advance - and it certainly surpassed expectations!
I was first introduced to Flight Facilities' music back in March of this year by somebody that I used to know. There's a great vibe to their tracks, very original, chill and engulfing. Going into this, I was already expecting a great set, based off of their singles.
But it actually turned out to be pretty phenomenal. The transitions between songs were flawless. The entire night it felt like we were just dancing to one continuous song, it was that smooth. The lead-ins and fade-outs were very well done.
Synchronized sleeve-rolling - you know it's about to get real when!
Crave You (ft. Giselle), Foreign Language (ft. Jess) & With You (ft. Grovesnor) are all super catchy singles in their own rights, but the remixes that night were on a whole other level. Just wow.
All in all, it was a pretty epic night; great company, great music and great fun. (& I've put my Flight Facilities sticker on my iPad case - the first, but hopefully many other stickers will be joining it soon!)
Attractive Australians.


"Here I stand, I can do no other."

- Max Weber, The Vocation Lectures

little girl lost -
confused and alone,
sentient & sapient, consumed in a crowd of:
humans, people, strangers - others.

but what if this little girl is
most other of all? 

what if
this little girl wants, pines, desires to 
contribute, be a part of, mean something to
those others, who are not really other -
so say it were possible to collapse the ideology of their respective others, 
would that thereby eradicate her own otherness? 

maybe this little girl isn't so little any more. 

maybe the world isn't so big; 
maybe the possibilities aren't so endless;
maybe the potential is severely limited;
maybe it's time to forgo the hedonism;
maybe, it's time. 

thinking too much, thinking too little - seeing patterns where coincidences exist, seeing no connections where linkages are present - what is hedonism? what is society? what is it to be selfless? what is it to be selfish? what is the meaning?

what is living?
