A complete lack of any thoughtful analysis.
I have read so many non-parody articles close to this, without the subversion of replacing “science” with “scientist”.
And yet more of my money will go to Good Smile Company… Renge Nendoroid pre-orders open tomorrow!
"Groove is in the Heart" by Deee-Lite feat. Bootsy Collins and Q-Tip, off World Clique (1990).
As well as featuring Bootsy Collins on this song, which counteracts the sheer late 80s/early 90s-ness of this video, Deee-Lite also was the band in which one of my favourite electronic artists (Towa Tei) got his start!
"Weapon of Choice" by Fatboy Slim feat. Bootsy Collins, off Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars (2000).
Life goal: dance like Christopher Walken.
Verrückt (2014), Schlitterbahn Water Park, Kansas City, USA. Designed by Jeff Henry.
Verrückt is the world’s tallest (and fastest) water-slide, and is also known as “the thing that will haunt my dreams from now until I die a hideous watery death on a raft hurtling down a wet slippery slope into oblivion”.
"Eros’ Entropic Tundra" by of Montreal, off Satanic Panic in the Attic (2004).
I’ve been listening to a lot of of Montreal in the last week (since watching “The Past is a Grotesque Animal”, a rather good documentary about the band/Kevin Barnes). I never paid too much attention to the stuff before Hissing Fauna, finding it a little bit twee for my tastes (and I have a strong tolerance for twee). After listening to the back catalogue again, I’m actually thinking Satanic Panic might be my favourite of Montreal full-length album. It won’t ever hit the spot that Icons, Abstract Thee does (Icons is closest to perfect that any EP I’ve heard is), but I don’t really think there’s a weak song on the album at all. I particularly like “Eros’ Entropic Tundra”, a bit of a downbeat lament about romantic loneliness, and “My British Tour Diary”, which is exactly as titled.
