one night in HACKNEY...

this past year upon arriving and claiming ground at moe.down, around 11am or so, we settled into our usual spot and started setting up. i'm pretty sure we had just about finished all the tents and were possibly done with the canopies as well and had just sat down to enjoy the fruits of our labor, when a blaring, thumping, techno beat started interrupting the flow.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR VIRTUAL CYBER BLOGGY EXPERIENCE:
to get the full effect, i recommend the following steps using the videos below.
1) press play on "ONE NIGHT IN HACKNEY"
2) wait maybe 15 seconds, and THEN...
3) press play on the footage of the CAMPSITE FLAGS and watch that
(enjoying it?)
4) continue reading below:

ONE NIGHT IN HACKNEY:


this footage is from a few hours later, but you'll get the idea...
CAMPSITE FLAGS:


you are now enjoying... ONE NIGHT... IN HACKNEY. at moe.down.

you see what i'm getting at. and the embedded video isn't actually the full version of the song, but that youtube page didn't have an embed code, so here's the link to the 7 minute version of "ONE NIGHT IN HACKNEY" but i do recommend you also watch the above video, to find out what it's really like to spend "ONE NIGHT IN HACKNEY", i think the guys did a good job capturing the experience.

from STAY UP FOREVER RECORDS, here's DYNAMO CITY's "ONE NIGHT IN HACKNEY": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-LX7bqTkZM&feature=related

anywhoosits, eventually we all started voicing our opinions (as did our neighbors) loudly enough (in between songs) that the RAVE TENT GUYS moved the RAVE TENT somewhere else.

but for hours or days or until we forgot, everyone was adding "IN HACKNEY" in a deep bri'ish voice to the ends of sentences or words. it was a good time. and i had completely forgotten about it 'til hern emailed me this article the other day:
http://travel.nytimes.com/2008/03/09/travel/09surfacing.html?8dpc

and for like a minute or two i was like, why the fuck did he send me this? maybe he sent it to the wrong person... but then (thump) (thump) (thump) (thump) i remembered that (thump) (thump) (thump) (thump) ONE NIGHT IN HACKNEY (thump) (thump) (thump) (thump) TAKE THIS PILL (thump) (thump) (thump) (thump) so i did* (thump) (thump) (thump) (thump) what was that? (thump) (thump) (thump) (thump) ONE NIGHT IN HACKNEY!!!!
