The Week of Donna & Data failure
"If it felt like the sound of tomorrow in 1977, now it just sounds timeless. Summer's multi-tracked voice floats over a kick drum, an arpeggiated bassline and sumptuous synths…" I Feel Love
"Because I'm just an ordinary person that did some extraordinary things." Donna Summer
"I don't care if I'm beautiful; I don't care what I am on the outside. It isn't about the outside.Donna Summer." Donna Summer
"Every child is an artist, the problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." Picasso
" 'The biggest deficit in peacetime history' – Theresa May < PEACETIME? it's never fucking peacetime thats a large part of the problem #antiwar" C Butler

"Tokyo's fugitive penguin found alive and well…" phew!
"The scientists explain this strange result by pointing out that blue triggers associations with the sky and ocean. People think about expansive horizons and diffuse light, sandy beaches and lazy summer days." Paint the Walls Blue!
An abbreviated R$N this week seeing as my trusty steed they call a computer had given up the ghost and no amount of begging, pleading, caressing, 'why???'s' etc seem to have made the blind bit of difference and my cohort's getting fidgety as I tap away on the white cohort steed… still, looks like something called a lion has has installed itself on above machine ok and has the 'wacky' reversible scrolling function attached to it now… endless hours of 'creative' fun. Still, upwards… always upwards.
Good night Donna and Chuck… sleep well.
"The Godfather of Go-Go. The Queen of Disco. Wherever Chuck Brown and Donna Summer are now, the people around them can't believe their luck."

What a strange world of online immediacy we live in…
Current affairs? Europe is fkkd – you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. Well we're not, well we are but Europe in general is damned if they sort Greece out or not…
Let's move on quickly and look at some ooh fractals man

Fare thee well and on into the night.
Coulda shoulda woulda gone with I Feel Love but a) over here GEMA are such I was going to say the word I so loosely toss off normally there and have restrained, let's say strict about youtube I can't even see it here and b) I dunno… maybe this is more of a Friday-er. Look at those hearts…
