Ugh. I hate cryptic bloggers. Reading a blog is not supposed to be like doing the bloody crossword is it? I do apologise. I'm sure all will be revealed in due course (or earlier if you tweet).
Anyway, I'm certainly very much looking forward to meeting up with C. on Thursday evening at Heathrow Terminal 5 to spend a few days in New York City. A few days in Manhattan are going to good for the soul, I think.
Oh, and do go and read the latest 5x5 over on the Art of Noise where I risk looking a bit of a fool by writing about music I know nothing about. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose, eh? Mind you, last time I suggested that I could hear the influence of the Smiths on Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong and opined that the Ting Tings were "Rescue Rooms not Rock City" (they played Rock City the other day).....so I've quite an act to keep up.
Shuffleathon 2008 Update
Shall we update? Shall we?
Truth be told, there's not a whole lot to be updating on yet. I haven't even decided on a track 1 side 1, so I can only take my hat of to those highly organised people amongst you who have got so far as to even get your CD out into the post. I salute you.
There's no rush yet, I don't think, but it would be great if we could all be aiming to get our CDs out into the post sometime around the end of the month if we're to stand any chance at all of getting this thing done and dusted before the end of the year. I'm already thinking that might be a stretch target, but you have to aim for something.... right?
|1. Me |
|4. Planet Me|
|12. Cody Bones|
|17. Joe the Troll|
|28. The Great Grape Ape||yes|
|29. Paul W|
I really have no idea what I'm putting on my CD. I guess I'd better start shortlisting, eh? I also reckon that the person I've drawn merits some careful thinking. Mmm. Fleet Foxes, of course, but you can't open with that kind of mellow, can you?
Some careful thinking whilst I'm in New York, I think.
If you could drop me a line when you send out your CDs, that would be great. Oh, and when you've received yours too. Oh, and when you've reviewed.
