Nighthawks for the tune of the day

MillionYoung's Nostalgic Shot

"I cut my hair in the same way
I have since I was young
I have no wish to change
I love what I've become"


A summer-infused tune by MillionYoung, to top up the nostalgia reservoirs.

The Black Keys live in Athens

Some thoughts on Saturday night's concert in Rockwave Festival:

1. The performance: We've always held a special place in our hearts for bands that climb on stage and perform as clinically rich and pitch-perfect as they did in the studio during the album recording. That's a "check" mark next to Black Keys.

2. The sound: When we say "play fucking loud!", we mean it in the same exact manner that Bob Dylan did when shouting to Mickey Jones right after the "Judas incident" in Royal Albert Hall. It translates to "hit a drum and make it shout like a rifle shot". The Black Angels, who were on stage before, kind of got it wrong; and featured a sound engineer who was destined to cripple our ear frequency range by endowing something like +80dB on the tweeters. Thankfully, the half-hour intermission allowed some time for curation to hearing impairs. The Keys started a bit quieter and for the most part of their set, were right on sound-wise.

3. The seats: VIP seats usually suck, except on acoustic concerts where they sometimes work. But in a rock arena type of thing, it's ridiculous to hear screaming guitars perpendicular to the stage and watch people go wild from a distance. Either be a part of it, or if you can't stand the unavoidable hassle, watch it on YouTube. Here is how it looked from the inside:

A Day at the Zoo

Ballerina flamingos, flying dolphins, yawning wildcats, charlatan monkeys, cartoonish lemurs and flirting giraffes.
Just a tiny portion of a Sunday stroll in the Attica Park.

Doors of Perception

"The man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never be quite the same as the man who went out.
He will be wiser but less sure, happier but less self-satisfied...".

The King of the Beach

Even an everyday ride along the seaside can hide excitement around the next corner. Especially if you prefer promising small paths instead of the main roads.
Here's a chair from an abandoned nightclub, turned instantly into a throne for some unrenowned King of the beach.

Circ brings memories of snowy descents

During a typical winter season, we would have counted a minimum of 15-20 days on the mountain.
For an array of reasons, the best we can do this specific winter is let this dreamy tune from the trailer of "All The Wilderness" movie, mentally take us to slopes dressed in untouched white coats...

Jessie Ware reloaded

Our favorite new artist ever since her debut in 2012, is currently back with her sophomore album, that builds upon the finessed pop that she so skillfully produces, by hybridizing elements from Sade and Lisa Stansfield.
All eleven songs are excellent, but a couple of them stand accused for making a brand new turntable stylus need replacement sooner than it normally should. Check out why:

Paranoia Trapped In A Square

Everyday life has been so full of it lately, that anyone who succeeds in restraining paranoia, becomes a friend.
Turning a waste pipe into something that transforms grumpy driver’s faces to veils.

We changed. We stayed the same.

"In terms of principles, steady as a rock.
In terms of medium, go with the flow".


As the rivers of responsive web-designs overflowed beneath it, the Hidden Cellar jumped right in.
Here's a (hell of a lot) friendlier embodiment of its initial iWeb version, along with two relevant songs to celebrate it.
