Certain records have a time and a place. Some very specific context, away from which the allure of memory fails to reconcile with the construct that’s actually being listened to…
… in which spirit I’ll just insert today’s track at the end of the words, hoping that it doesn’t draw too much attention to itself. A record Teutonic, ambivalent and strangely flat – I’m guessing that the dialogue has flipped over into Esperanto since that last, long-ago listen. Still, we’re onto the penultimate dance-flavoured post – by early next week the focus will snap back into view, and we’ll all be mainlining twee guitar riffs and space-rock bleeps and buzzes like we’ve never been apart. Which is no doubt how things should be.
This is post #100 as delivered through the Lazer Guided Melody mouthpiece. Not an especially big number I suppose, but back at the beginning there was little expectation that we’d ever arrive at this milepost – or at least have made such heady progress in getting here so quickly.
I’ve previously admitted harbouring reservations about this whole blogging affair – misgivings derived from format, from medium, from message – whilst application over any length of time is always a challenge when your attention span is as short and as fickle as mine; my head is continually turned by baubles and trinkets and irrelevant flights of fancy – these things very easily nudge the mindset towards obsession – so I guess something must be working for LGM to be playing out in this fashion.
By which I mean to say: thanks for the reading, commenting and supporting, but most of all … OH MY GIDDY AUNT, LOOK, A SHINY THING, IT’S SO PRETTY, SO FLUFFY, MY ENTIRE ATTENTION SIMPLY MUST HAVE IT…
