Short Message 25/1/2010 - Fashionoffice publisher Karin Sawetz's catwalk tip: Maison Martin Margiela fall/winter 2010/11, 23rd January, Paris. "I understand not a word what the producer of the video from the catwalk presentation is talking about, but I think she is not only commenting the fashion of the men's models. Even her camera is sometimes more fixated on a man in the audience than on the show. By the way: the Brazilian (?) Ana Clara Garmenida shows also on her website anaclara.com.br a good taste in men's look."

The video shows her performing the song with a guitarist in the Last.fm Discover Studios in November 2009. Hearing Florence and The Machine evokes the impression as if Kate Bush is dancing to the music of the White Stripes, cooled down by Tom Waits-Nick Cave sounds, with a touch of Bjork's eccentricity. On her website is published that: “Everything is about boys!” she laughs. “The whole album is about love – and pain. People see my lyrics as crazy, but to me it’s an honest, heartfelt album. I didn’t set out to be wacky. I just want it to be emotive.” The musician is nominated for Best Female, Best Album (for 'Lungs') and Breakthrough Artist at this year’s Brit Awards. Florence and The Machine will perform live at the Brit Awards Ceremony on 16th February.

The costumes, mostly with animal imagery, evoke with the nature-ritual alike performance a spiritual impression.

Using wit and humor and a fanciful sensibility, Cave's Soundsuits beg us to pay attention and to dream of a different future." writes the Fowler Museum about the exhibition 'Nick Cave: Meet Me at the Center of the Earth'.

Short Message 13/1/2010 - 'Rebellion of the mountain' - The 1st Viennese Poacher’s Ball happens on 13th Feb at the Ottakringer brewery The poachers’ shady tradition makes this ball special. Guest speaker at the ball is Dr. Roland Girtler, the well-known Austrian sociologist, cultural anthropologist and professor at the University of Vienna. During the night of the 13th February, he will bring light into the ‘shady’ legend of the poachers from the Alps of Austria and Bavaria who have broken the law and forced the reigning noble society to get own hunting rights. Roland Girtler cites an old saying from the Alps which means as much as that a boy who has not poached, is not allowed to visit a girl by night. To get the right look for that night, scene-figaro Erich Joham makes the hair and face directly at the ball (poachers have blackened faces). The dress-code is easy: women wear the traditional costume from the Alps, the dirndl, men leather pants and alpine boots; but in a more bold fashion than usual! The ‘poachers’ on the ball can fill their pans with goodies by the Viennese star-chef de cuisine Reinhard Gerer. The stage will be heated up by several prominent regional stars; one of them is Zabine Kapfinger (on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UjOsfRiS4Q you can get an impression from the musical style; the video shows Zabine yodelling with Hubert von Goisern). Tickets for the Poacher’s Ball (Wildererball www.wildererball.at) are available on www.oeticket.com or www.ticketcorner.com. You can try to win 2 tickets by sending an email to gruener (et) brightsolutions.at. Short Message by author Lisa Grüner.
