Diary of an old cheeser

Hi there! Like other blogs, this is my chance to wax lyrical (some might say talk utter cr*p) about a) what's happening in my life b) all of my pet obsessions in particular music, tv, movies, books and other generally connected things, quite often of the retro, old and "cheesy" variety. Hence the title of my blog. Feel free to leave a comment if the mood takes you. There's nothing like a good chinwag about one's favourite topics and besides I love to meet new people! Cheers, Simon

Video of the fortnight - Calvin Harris - Acceptable in the 80s

Okay, strictly speaking this is a "newbie" rather than an oldie. But who said I couldn't plug new videos! And this one has it's feet firmly rooted in the past.

I found out about it via fellow blogger Boz - always good to check out other people's blogs and get the lowdown on what's new (cheers Boz!) Calvin Harris is a relatively unknown Scottish songwriter/DJ and this, his debut single "Acceptable in the 80s" is out on Monday! Followed by an album, "I Created Disco" in June. AND - he is writing a track for Kylie Minogue's forthcoming comeback album! Wowee. Lucky guy.

As soon as I heard this track I loved it. Great use of synthesisers and great style (Bruno Martelli would be well jealous). Could this man be the next Mylo?

    Matty - you're welcome, petal. Yes I think he's a bit of a hot talent, I love it when these new musical discoveries spring up.

    Erm, well according to Kylie's official website, she's currently in the studio recording tracks for the album "hopefully to be released later this year"! So that's as much as I know at present....

    OC xx
