Something For the Weekend

TB is off to deepest darkest Hackney, well Victoria Park rather to see Tiesto tonight... something he has wanted to do for a long time, not least of all because of this little video:

Will try ask the man himself what he thinks...

One for the weekend...

Apologies for the lack of stories. After what was a hectic, but great, week TB let of a little steam at a couple of parties.

Just got back from deepest Somerset. Bit of a mission to get home on two hours sleep, but god damn it those west-country folk can party. Camera wasn't working, but imagine this tune was playing loud from the top of a hill, looking over the Avon, as the sun came up:

Cracking night.

A lesson in DJ wizardry...

Cheeky sod

has been raving about the Faye Lawson Mash-Up of DJ Tata's Spring Breeze that samples Obama since New Year's Eve. Ever the fan of a mash up, in every sense of the word, he has now managed to track it down, apparently to show TB how these things are really done...

Perfect way to start your Monday morning...

Blue rosettes and DJ sets II

Tory Bear will be going on Edinburgh radio this Wednesday evening to discuss dance music and its relationship with politics. He will put the link up to listen in live and try get a podcast of the interview. Although he has lots to say on the subject he is a little stuck on ideas of which tracks to choose.

Apart from this epic track, what other songs could/should he play?

The Guardian have

to the Tory Bear George Osborne trance remix: 

"Here are four words you probably never thought you'd see in the same sentence: "George Osborne trance remix".

Yes, that's George, Osborne, trance and remix.

And it really does mean what it says on the tin: this video features the shadow chancellor's response to the pre-budget report overlaid with a bangin' dance soundtrack.

This deeply strange true blue mash-up comes courtesy of the Tory Bear blog.

Big shout out to the Tory massive."

Labour have done it again - the remix

Apologies for the light blogging today, here's why:

Osborne sticking it to Labour and a bit of trance... spread it around!

Just what you need for an idle Tuesday night.

Dizzee Rascal for PM

If you thought the weekend was nearly over then think again - turn the volume up and get the music pumping...

Incase you missed his stunning Newsnight debute, check out Tory Bear's mash up of Dizzee Rascal explaining why Obama won because of hip-hop and why he might very well run for office..

Remember where you saw the Dizzee4PM campaign first kids!

Somewhere in the projects the two campaigns met...

TB strongly recommends you watch this to the very end...who’s gonna be the baddest b-boy in Washington, who’s gonna pop to the top, who’s gonna freeze in the White House and who’s gonna do the worm all the way to Ohio?

So to settle this once and for all, the Grand Old Posse lay it down to the Democrats for a once-and-for-all dance off - winner takes all…

TB would tap that too my friend.

Hat-Tip -
Noise Porn
- if you like beats and gingers TB recommends you check it out...

Busy little bear

Another busy weekend for TB so blogging will be light to non-existant...

Will get the the NME ratings index up in the next few days if you're lucky...

Seems it all got a little heated in the last 24 hours if the amount of emails and texts TB got last night are anything to go by. Here's a little song to lighten up your Friday...

If that doesn't calm things down nothing will!

Enjoying this election a little too much...

Despite having no vote in the USA and having a go at people last week who act like they do, TB can't help sitting back and watching this fascinating election unfold. For a political junkie like TB each twist and turn and new development is new crack.

Americans take their elections to a whole new level. This years DNC was smashed all viewing records and had more people watching Obama than the Oscars. Our conference season is going to be tiny in the face of the grand conventions- party conference struggles to get decent coverage from the rolling news channels, let alone the "prime-time."

Bare with TB if he gets more than a little excited from time to time over the next eight weeks. The combination of a fascinating primary season and the fact the race is still wide open and likely to get bloody could make this the most exciting election in a very long time... or McCain or Palin will do something fucking stupid and BO will storm it... but only time will tell!

At this rate TB is very, very tempted to fly out in November... Who's coming?

In the meantime here's a little tune for y'all.

Give it a minute to get going...

Always a laugh...

In case you don't remember:

Haha, had forgotten quite how bad it was.

DJ sets and blue rosettes...

is a new political channel on the VEOH network. Currently showing some great documentaries about Thatcher and the history of the Party ToryTV is a welcome addition to the Party's online presence.
TB has been chatting to its founder Paul Nizhinsky about his fascinating political journey and where next for ToryTV...

Hailing from Dodsworth, a small former mining village outside of Barnsley, South Yorkshire Paul, 23 set up the channel after becoming increasingly frustrated about the lack of political content available on sites such as youtube. He hasn't always been a tory and kindly agreed to chat to TB about how he got to this point...

"I've been a party member since February 2007. After a very illuminating s
ummer between my second and third years studying Fine Art, I realised that everything I believed in (Marxism) was a big load of shit and little more than an extension of my own personal failings. I sorted myself out, stuck it out 'til the end on my stupid degree, and haven't looked back. Since that time I've lived in Sheffield, Leeds, and Barnsley so I've had little time to get stuck in with a particular association, though I did attend a wonderful dinner with Edward Leigh MP at Hallam. My (socialist) friends followed the cab there and, after speaking to Leigh outside, learned the awful truth. I suppose my own lefty past could be one of the things that drives me to make these videos more readily available."

When he isn't running the tv channel Paul is a budding electro DJ and fan of
Warp Records

"give [them] a try, it will change your life! They started in Sheffield at the back end of the '80s and have been cultivating the best experimental electronic music from around the globe ever since."

Anyone else up for the "new right club night" we discussed?

Q.Who are your political heroes?

A. "Heroes is a term I generally try to avoid because people have a tendency to get very presumptuous when you use it, but there are of course people I admire and respect. Boris is an easy one. You can't help but like the man and he's a wonderful example of someone not letting 'the men in the grey suits' dictate his character. As well as why you should never give in - that man's been fired so many times it's unbelievable! He's an enthusiastic historian and a journalist by trade (well, was), which we have in common/I aspire to. I'm probably going to upset many people by also saying Nigel Lawson! He's essentially a City man and, as with Boris, I do have something of a soft spot for Spectator editors. I disagree very strongly with his views on Europe and how this dictated his attitude to the ERM in the late '80s, but I feel many people let this overshadow his achievements as Chancellor in Lady Thatcher's second term. And although she was right on Europe, Lawson's actions after 1987 did set in motion the chain of events leading to White Wednesday. "

Paul seems like an extremely sound guy with a lot of ambition to take ToryTV places. TB urges anyone who is keen to see more political content online, especially since the 18 Doughty Street is no more, to get in touch with Paul. He mentioned to TB a desire to see his own content generated and TB has a sneaking suspicion this is going to go far... Spread the word about the channel and check out the great content already available.

Something for the weekend...

TB is taking it easy this weekend. He must be getting old as the amount he drunk last night no where near warrents the horrendous hangover...
