Long time dead.

Jeez. Didn't realise it'd been so long since I left this blogger thing behind. I cut a few of my presences loose, to concentrate on maintaining my main site and my various social profiles. Now my main site is down for refurbishment, and I'm tumbleblogging at Get that. Tumbleblogging. Always up for a brand new thing, natch. TYMBI is dead. Long live the tumbleblog...

Amplified Pre-New Year's Eve Party - December 20th, 2006

(old codger's voice:) You young whippersnappers. I remember wot Amplified wuz like back in the old days. When it wuz at the Spot in Covent Gahden - that place don't even exist no more. Still, musn't grumble. They still know how to have a good knees-up... [flyer]

Don't call it a comeback...

Survive the xmas spirit? Good. Time to get back on the treadmill. If you're hitting Oxford St for the sales this week, you might want to take a load off by heading to Market Place on Thursday evening (December 28th, 2006) for a Mahogany revival. If you don't know Mahogany, it became part of the quintessential Sunday evening experience for slick 20-to-30-something neo-soulites and lovers of good music and lazy Sunday afternoons off Oxford Street. The night no longer runs, though it's been replaced by something that I'll probably mention here when I've had a chance to check it out. This Thursday is a chance to catch a piece of "the vibe that once was". Enjoy. [Great flyer, isn't it? And the Market Place is a very nice venue... ]

Hip-Hop Karaoke

Oh, this sounds like SOOOOO much fun... ;)

In other news: I'm currently reviewing all of my web services. My current host has done me well up until now, but I think I've outgrown it. I'll hopefully be making a move over the next week or so, which may well mean a new home for TYMBI... Watch this space.

Stellar Bodies - Science Fiction and Black Female Perspectives (16.12.06)

The ICA hosts a sci-fi event dedicated to black female perspectives. Cool. From the website:

"Amidst the expanded galaxies of science fiction and Afro-futurist cultures emerges the starship Black Female. From Brides of Funkenstein to Octavia Butler, Zoe Whitley delves into her unique voices and representations."

'Tis the season...

Howies are in London for a sample sale. Says the email: "We are bringing a van full of end of line, last on the shelf, one off samples, returns, stuff that needs a new button or a new zip, shrunk and plenty of size 8 and XL."

They'll be at The Well, Dray Walk, The Old Truman Brewery, Off Brick Lane, and Whitechapel E1 - along with 11 other ethical brands. Sounds like a cool place to escape the Xmas spirit and self-indulge for a bit. Dates: Thursday the 7th of December 6pm till 9pm (today!), Friday 8th 10am till 8pm, Saturday 9th 10am till 7pm, Sunday 10th 11am till 5pm. The email only came out today, hence the last minute notice - has nothing to do with the fact that I've been skiving off email and lounging on a Hawaiin island for the past two weeks... ;)
