Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Erasure-ish.

Okay, I was wrong yesterday - it's Breath of Life, not Chorus, that's got about half a dozen remixes of the same song. Not looking forward to that one when it comes around.

However, I've worked out best/favourite remixes of some of the others, and will edit my playlist accordingly when my Mac's back in working order.


  • Supernature (Mark Saunders Mix)
  • Blue Savannah - still haven't made my mind up on that yet; I mean, I like the two Der Deutsche Mixes (I probably more than II) but both deviate quite a bit from the original musically, and the bog standard extended (Mark Saunders Mix) might be the one I plump for - but it's a bit pedestrian. I'll listen to them a few more times before I make a decision...
  • Star (Soul Mix)
  • Chorus (Aggressive Trance Mix)
  • Love to Hate You (LFO Modulated Filter Mix)


And I'm up to Am I Right at the moment. Not even sure how many mixes there are of that...

Can't be bothered to Lock this post in any way - if you find it a bit boring, sorry...

Things that make you happy

gipsy_dreamer posted a list of things that make her happy, and suggested that other folks could share the love. Which seemed like a good idea. So - these are the things that make me happy. What makes you happy? Let me know in the comments, and then post it in your LJ as well.

In no particular order:


  • My family, especially Sarah, and my nephew and niece.

  • Fandom (any) when it's being friendly and loving and nice to one another, and sharing fandom love and squee

  • Taking an aimless walk somewhere beautiful, preferably with Sarah

  • Finding a bridge over a stream and playing Pooh sticks

  • Settling down and watching a good TV programme, preferably one of my fandoms. Doctor Who especially!

  • Friends, online and IRL (especially when online friends become RL friends).

  • Weekends with no plans and no commitments.

  • Hugging Sarah on a Saturday morning at the start of a weekend with no plans and no commitments!

  • Hearing good news (last night I learned that my aunt is getting married!)

  • Being able to help people, even in small ways

  • Spring mornings

  • Listening to good music

  • Watching a romantic movie

  • Reading a good book

  • Enjoying a good meal

  • Counting my blessings that I'm able to enjoy all of the above
