feel good tip #14

With my heart full of pride I share the first A Tropical Clash compilation! It has been our Christmas gift to our beloved clubbers during the last December 25th party and now it is available for download on our brand new Soundcloud page. As its name tells, it has been carefully created to cheer those beautiful moments of life :) A panty jerker selection made by Cevo, Glorioushead and me. This time more than ever: enjoy!

BettyBoop's 2011 in 10 minutes ♥

This is a 10 minutes summary of the top 10 releases of 2011 that I loved and played more during the year. For better or for worse, it has been very challenging, filled with joy, love, satisfaction and stars but effort and some bitter tears as well. I have no idea of what 2012 will bring us, but it will but I wish the best to you all. And it will be another fabulous musical year! Love! ♥

bubble #23

These days I'm busy all day with the preparation of the New Year's eve party at Locomotiv Club, named Apocalypso Now, with a view to 2012 :)
We are setting up a post-apocalytic world where we will have fun with what's left, so we are creating objects, musical instruments, ornaments, toys and whatever else using recycled materials. It is very exhausting but extremely stimulant and creative, and I am excited as I was when I used to build my own toys as a child :)
At the end of the day to relax a little, there is nothing better than good white wine and progressive rock. This is undoubtedly one of my favourites by Pink Floyd and if you do not already know, I hope you will enjoy it :)

merry!

To be honest, I don't like Christmas so much. People go mad and spend their money in crap, everybody prentends to be good, you must eat the impossible and all this produces pollution and waste of energy. But there is one thing I really love since ever: the Christmas Eve dinner with my whole family. It is the only tradition that I'm glad to meet and I am proud of it, because it is simple and loving :) So, while I'm watching the snow falling out of my windows and my bath tub gets filled, let me introduce you my three little astronauts. I used acrylic on balsa wood. ;)

la sirena ortica

Last night I met a new character, la sirena Ortica (in english the Sirenettle, siren + nettle). Today, while I was drawing her, a new friend appeared: la Margheriga (in english something like a striped daisy).

per fare un albero ci vuole un disegno

Mercoledì 21 Dicembre (il prossimo) ultimo appuntamento del 2011 con Favanilia al Vanilia :) Questa volta la protagonista sono io! Uuu!
Vi dico quello che succederà: tanto per cominciare disegnerò un albero gigante su una delle vetrine del bar, poi darò un foglietto ed una matita ad ognuno degli ospiti e lo inviterò a disegnare. Tutti i disegni che nasceranno andranno poi a decorare l'albero :) In tutto questo, appenderò qua e là i miei sketches of the dayHappy Coridon avrà un angolino per le sue meravigliose creazioni di lana e compare Cevo ci delizierà le orecchie con i suoi dischi  :)
Se siete a Bologna, venite a disegnare con me, dalle 19.30 circa!

What a great tip this time. Just posted on their facebook page, this amazing mix by Discodromo made my day (and tragically increased my berlincholy). Sexy and pacifying at the same time :) Well done guys, thank you! ♥

Lately, I'm obsessed with this song. It makes me feel in love with the whole world :) Enjoy.

rainy monday

Love is raining from the sky, but we keep on using our umbrellas and wondering why we get wet anyway. I suggest we all walk in the rain, eyes to the sky, as I did this morning.  Love!

weee!

The chicks are partying!

drawing in the rain

Domani pomeriggio alla Libreria GolcondaFavanilia prosegue il suo trotterellare con Drawing In The Rain, una piccola asta di beneficenza in favore dei comuni della Liguria colpiti dalla tremenda alluvione dello scorso ottobre.
All'asta saranno battuti i disegni degli artisti che parteciperanno e che rappresenteranno le loro visioni di una canzone a tema pioggia. Io di per me, ho scelto È la pioggia che va dei Rokes, del 1966: oltre ad essermi sempre piaciuta fin da bambina, trovo che sia assolutamente attuale. Ma anche ottimista. Un po' come me di questi tempi :)

BettyBoop ★ Purple Mix ★ 2011

This is more or less what I played last night at A Tropical Clash :) We were totally in the mood for electroclash and electropop from the 00s so I dug in my old stuff and gladly jumped back in time for a while. The club was packed and I had the honor of having a stunning dancefloor. Thanks to all, enjoy!
