HOW TO BE A PERFECT LIVE BAND tutorial


(administered by Gable at Beurscafe last night)

  • start slow, like any other band kneeling on the floor and fiddling with extraterrestrially complicated equipment.



  • entertain your public by blowing into two flutes simultaneously.


  • make sure your guitar is missing some strings and is tied with a cord.



  • swap, sample, interact. Put 'Bonsoir Bruxelles' on a loop.


  • buy your instruments in a toy store, choose brightly coloured ones.

  • do the foot action.




  • put a cat sticker  on your guitar
  • grab a bunch of unnecessary stuff and use it as a drum effect.



(always employ the key of your hotel room as a music instrument)


  • tear a wooden crate in pieces, smash it on your head for a more convincing stage action (only while pretending you are a drunk fox in London)




  • do more floor action, amongst the debris.

  • NEVER forget Elvis.



  • give up trying to be cool! just go see Gable do their thing.

Today I felt like I needed to breath the cold digital winter air…I felt that my current position in blogosphere was suffocating me…I took a ride out into the infinite snowy fields and filled my lungs anew…and I felt that I needed to share.

This is a more personal and honest part of what I do. I run an image blog ± (Various Sources) on Tumblr, write a good old fashion blog .origami mon ami since 2006, and since recently publish a fashion fanzine Various Sources. All Brussels-based, I’m no globe-trotter, although I do explore the Northern part of the Old Continent with immense pleasure.

I want to share what I think, see, like, wear, buy, want, make, do, visit, love, know, discover, find, lose, keep, get, give, take, share
