November 8, 2013 by


This song is my second favourite from this album but the most appropriate to this playlist. I enthusiastically encourage you to go and listen to Sing, which is my favourite. And then, when you’re enticed and confused, go check out the rest of the album and its extras. Because this album is a tiny (awesome) post-apocalyptic science fiction […]

Probably Not About A Pair of Rollerskates and a Bathtub Full of Yoghurt

June 26, 2013 by


Me: [John Carter of Mars] reminded me forcibly of Flash Gordon. Arkem: He is the saviour of the universe! Me: He has a song and everything. In fact, if you say the word ‘flash’ in any context near Greg C or I we both sing, ‘ah-ah’ reflexively. When I was sick once at about age […]
