Mumford and Sons

This is good.
I've heard them for the first time in summer 2008, when Mumford & Sons were playing at The Cellar in Oxford. The British folk rock band was formed in 2007 and has released their first studio album called Sigh No More this year. 
I give you two tracks to enjoy (the second one is not on the album):

Max Mara

I thought since i applied for a job there i might as well post an ode to Max. It's my happy place whenever i go shopping in Italy, a place where i go, have a look, sigh and go out. I did think, though, that slovenian sales people get Nobel prize for rudeness, but noone can top the lady in Triest, that said 'Buongiorno' when me and my mum got through the door of Max Mara shop, gave me a 'Manhattan all-over' then seeing my Nike trainers and went 'Ciao' with eyelids half closed. Oh well, still love the clothes.

These are from various collections; Max Mara, Sportmax,etc.

From his A/W 09/10 collection that comes with the words like future, futuristic and back 2 the future. The shoes look like they came right form a 60s sci-fi film set. All you need is a tacky sexy sci-fi superhero costume and off you go.
I'd go for the first two. Yum!

iDon't like iPods (playlist)

This is what my Creative player created today:

Thom Yorke - Skip Divided
Morrissey - I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris
Arcade Fire - Keep The Car Running
Editors - Fingers In The Factories
Joy Division - Transmission
Sinead O'Connor - Daddy I'm Fine
Franz Ferdinand - Ulysses

''...Well I could call out when the going gets tough.
The things that we've learnt are no longer enough.
No language, just sound, that's all we need know, to synchronise
love to the beat of the show.''

LIMI feu

LIMI feu is Limi Yamamoto's label based in Tokyo. Limi is of course the daughter of the great Yohji Yamamoto. Personally, I favour her designs. They're fresh, wearable and seem very soft and comfortable yet still edgy. And not all black.

Pumpkin with couscous


You need a bit of pumpkin, feta cheese, sun dried tomatoes, basil, pine nuts, couscous, leak, onion, rocket, some parmesan cheese, a bit of olive oil and sunflower or any cooking oil.

First you cut and peel the pumpkin and remove seeds and pulp. Cut it into longer thick slices. Then put in in the oven for about 30 mins at 180 degrees with a bit of water so it doesn't go dry. The sugar in the pumpkin will caramelise and go all yummy. If the water evaporates just add more so it doesn't burn.

Mix feta cheese, chopped sun dried tomatoes, chopped basil leaves and pine nuts into a paste. If it's too thick to blend it add a bit of olive oil.

When the pumpkins are done (when you can pierce them with a fork easily) spread the paste on top of them.
Put them back in the oven for about 10 minutes.

While waiting, you cook a quick-cook couscous. Fry sliced onion and leak with some cooking oil. Mix it with couscous and add some olive oil.

Take the pumpkins out of the oven and serve them on plates with couscous and rocket with parmesan.

Bon Appétit!

Songs for Sunday

Procol Harum

And so it was that later,
As the miller told his tale, 
That her face at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale.
