Check out the first one, The Carnival, below. You can listen to the full song on his MySpace page.

Go Lieven!

Visiting (me in) NYC…

… in August or September (or maybe until the end of the year) and not sure where you are going to stay (since my stuff won’t arrive for another 8 weeks), then look no further! M. is going on an Asia trip and has a fantastic place in the East Village (go east!) that he is subletting. He is taking bookings right now, so hurry up, because it will fill up fast for sure.
More information, prices and pictures here.

The girl from the east

I grew up in the east of Belgium. More than 20 years I spent there and loved (almost) every minute of it. After living a couple of year just east of Brussels, I moved to Canary Wharf in the east of London. One year later, I moved to Shoreditch, again in the east of London. And now, in less then two weeks, I will move into my new apartment in the gramercy/Union Square area of New York. Yes, you guessed well, it’s in the east of Manhattan. Some thing never change. East side rules… (making E sign with right hand).

Kate Ryan got a mentioning on the Perez Hilton blog, gossip capital of the world. That’s quite impressive and will do her career a lot of good. He can make someone famous.

4 more days in London. Today I will have to prepare for the movers that are coming tomorrow. This means packing my suitcases for the next 6 to 8 weeks because that is how long the shipment of the rest of my stuff will take to get to NYC (if I’m lucky). Although I’m quite used to packing for trips, I’m not really sure what I should pack for 8 weeks. Especially since I won’t be staying in a hotel, but in my new apartment. Do I take a duvet and sheets? Do I take towels or just buy them new? What about kitchen stuff? And then I haven’t really even thought about what clothes to bring. Since it is 1000000 degrees in New York, my (mostly male) friends are telling me to just bring a bikini. I however don’t think the people in the office would be ok with that.
I organized some leaving drinks for my mates, both work and friends on Friday. I have a feeling I’m going to cry a lot that night. I really do hate saying goodbye. And the chances of me ever returning to live in England are quite slim, so some of these people, I’ll probably never ever will see again… Sucks.
