You take one week not paying attention to the web and all kinds of weird things happen. Damn you World of Warcraft. Damn you to hell! The consequence of this is that I’m going to post a huge linklog thing over the next couple of days, plus a whole range of much much smaller observances than normal – as I just try and get as much stuff out of my system as I can.
First up – something I almost never do on plasticbag.org – I want to plug a song. Specifically I want to plug the single Number 1 from the Goldfrapp album Supernature. It came out on Monday and I really wanted to encourage everyone to go and listen to it then, but I got distracted by the evidently more pressing Murloc-killing that my Warlock just had to accomplish in order to level-up within a satisfactory timescale.
Anyway, if you play the song loud enough through sufficiently bassy headphones, the pounding bass is enough to put a spring in the step of even the most jaded old grump. Somewhere between glam rock and Depeche Mode – with a video full of dog faced ladies and plastic surgery – I can’t really see how you can go wrong.
And of course – as ever – if you want to know what else I’ve been listening to, you can explore my weekly charts on last.fm. Last week ( Oct 23 to Oct 30, 2005 ) features a surprise re-entry for Fern Kinney’s “Together we are beautiful” after approximately thirty years out of the public eye. Thrilling stuff.
