Mrs Mackerel's TFI Friday (20th January).

MM and I went to see a film this week with a friend of ours, Gooner Ian. We were the only three in the cinema until the last minute when a couple gate-crashed the party. (Didn’t they realise?! We didn’t!) Anyway, no-one could deny the commanding central performance or even a highly credible supporting cast, but it just wasn’t what it promised to be. It lacked depth (in this case political) and was without the cultural reference points that spark a whole raft of memories. Sadly, it just sort of faded away from consciousness.

It’s a metaphor that translates well. People… Songs… They start well, make a lot of noise, put on a great show but actually underneath it all, there’s really not much to it or them at all.

What’s a girl to do? Get swimming. Splash!

A very happy Friday to you.

Mrs Mackerel

  1. Time To Pretend might be my favorite MGMT song, love their fun electronic sound. Been really into The Asteroids Galaxy Tour lately, too, can’t wait for their new album to come out!
