There are still amazingly kind strangers out there.
Yesterday, after a meeting that lasted no less than five hours (I battle in meetings of the boardroom type. I really really do. Fidgety, ADD, honestly I almost die, this is not a joke), I arrive to my desk where there is a package waiting for me.
Oh the excitement!
It's four CDs:
Mother Mix 3
King Of My Castle CD Single.
It's Christmas in Vegas, baby.
What meeting again?
So JL, thank you for making my day. And the consolidating towards my Techno Fabulous dream.
He sent me the orijaainals. He heard my plea, and obliged. The original Bump – that's seminal OK.
As seminal as my Monster Hits 1 CD.
And almost as seminal as, say, Now 1. (Now is at 487 now, right?)
Imagine finding that CD. Valuable antique.
And on that note, thanks to everyone for helping make my music mission a reality. Those who have offered [questionably illicit] links for video rippage, for offering their help, sending me and lending me their CDs. It means so much; I know it takes effort. You are all so kind!
You really made me so happy yesterday. And today, and forever.
As a result, 3RM and I had a Rave For Two People in my lounge last night.
3RM revealed he had Bump 5 on his puter. Holy Lord, Bump 5 was a good year. Good God.
This era of music really ripped the ring out of synthesization. 3RM says there's no such word, but actually there is. I just made it.
Fucken marvellous. And I'm going fishing this weekend with this music. I'm in heaven.
I got my quotes for the holiday in Argentina at the end of this year. Maybe with my Dad, maybe not. That still has to be determined.
I have some thinking to do before I make the flight purchase to Buenos Aires. Either way its on the cards. The question is how it will be done.
I think I'm going through (another?) quarter-life crisis. Recapturing my youth. The periodic songs, the travelling: I feel like I'm 18 at the moment, when in reality I'm almost 28.
I suppose like how a 45-year old buys a Porsche, hangs with hos and gels his hair back.
