EXCLUSIVE: Este HAIM Chats About Life With Type 1 Diabetes | missjengrieves

December 5, 2013
HAIM

Scroll to the bottom if you can’t be jacked to read my waffle. The vid’s there, worry not. Sooo… major jokes that this happened. Still can’t get over it (although it’s clear to see by account of how much gushing I manage in 180 seconds). Everybody be cool. It was a right place right time kinda thing –  I found myself chatting to Californian uber babes HAIM to fill time while they waited for an interviewer to arrive. After rambling on about watching them play in New York after a hurricane (as you do) and so on, I managed to grow some proverbial balls and tell Este that I was a fellow type 1. (Oh, by the way, Este has type 1). ‘No wayyyyyy! I never meet anyone else with this damn thing!’ she exclaimed. We started chatting about how there aren’t enough positive role models out there for YOUNG…

My Week In Beats – 24.05.13

May 24, 2013

Week 2… This is fun isn’t it? I like this idea. Soooo music music music. This week has been about a LOT of music, maybe more than normal. Let’s GO. 1. So on Friday night I had the absolute pleasure of heading to Brighton to pap the BBC Introducing night at the Great Escape festival. This ‘work’ pretty much combined all of my favourite things: taking pics, live music and being by the sea! (I know, tough job isn’t it?! I promise I do work really hard). There was a really lovely group of us down there and I photo’d four bands over the course of the evening. One of them, Iyes, I pretty much fell in love with there and then, and this had absolutely nothing to do with the beautiful guitarist… Honest. This track Glow struck me completely. The vocals – wow. The rest… well it’s synthy, soft…

My Week In Beats – 17.05.13

May 17, 2013

Hola! So I thought this might be a little fun thing to do each Friday to spread the feel good vibes in the way that only music can, inspired by everyone I work with at Radio 1 and 1Xtra that are so passionate about what they do. These are my previously published unashamedly OTT thoughts on what music can do for a soul. It’s the most wonderful, universal language in the whole of existence. It’s flipping tremendous. It divides people, but ultimately it unites people. Music = Love. It’s just an incredible thing don’tcha think? It DOES THINGS to people. Physically it makes you move (bum wigglers, head nodders, you count just as much as those partial to a running man), emotionally it reaches out to you, chemically I’m sure it must do something because bloody hell it lifts you up. It transports you to a time, a place, a…

Lost In Music – Jessie Ware

October 15, 2012
Goon.

Hola. Tonight Matthew, I want to talk about music. Not diabetes. GASP. Bear with, I’m making a diabetes link in here somewhere. Once I’ve figured out what that link is… I LOVE LOVE LOVE music. So so much. I don’t claim to be a muso; I’m not cool enough to be a muso. But it is a huge part of my day, every single day. And not just because I work in radio. It’s because it’s the most wonderful, universal language in the whole of existence. It’s flipping tremendous. It divides people, but ultimately it unites people. Music = Love. I think I could count on one hand the number of people I’ve met in my life that aren’t fussed by music. It’s just an incredible thing don’tcha think? It DOES THINGS to people. Physically it makes you move (bum wigglers, head nodders, you count just as much as those…
