Show Notes
This month we are hurting in the focus department. We debut our music video, get hip to the lingo on Twitter, and reminisce about Twin Peaks. Laura gives Enigma the business, Neil turns hypochondriac in a geriatric sort of way and Mari rides a Ferris Wheel – indoors! With emotive tunes by The Sleep, 46bliss, Venus Hum and Buddahead. Is it just me, or is this music making me sleepy?

    Best. Episode. Ever.

    Hello my favourite Cincinnatians (is that a real word?) As ever, a jolly good show, here’s my pounds and pence worth of feedback for you…

    46Bliss = nice. A good find there. I shall be exploring further. Nice to hear talk of Twin Peaks again after all this time. I remember being intrigued, bemused and flummoxed* in equal measures. I agree with you – it did lose the plot a little bit toward the end.

    Mari is rocking the Garageband! Lovin’ the loops girl! The theme music for DM news this month once again rocked my world, such raw talent on display. I am in agreement with you on the DM projections, very hit and miss. I shall not rant about lazy Mr Corbijn but he ran out of ideas a long time ago. If you come to London, I shall pop up and meet you for tea and sandwiches. Make it so!

    *flummoxed – a word that’s not used enough. Please try to get it into the next episode.

    Dearest, darling Andrew –
    Your feedback always makes my month! Tea and sandwiches in London it is. And be careful what you ask for. Neil is rarely flummoxed by a challenge like this.

    WOW BOB WOW I forgot to comment on this podcast! I love Twin Peaks, I’ve watched every episode & the movie at least 6 times. Sometimes when I brush my teeth I look into the mirror and say “How’s Annie?”, but no head butting the mirror.

      Why do movies have to make looking in the mirror so creepy? Especially at night. Don’t want to see Bob in there. No way. Unless it’s Robert Smith, of course.
