“NIFFLE NAFFLING” IS THE TERM FOR NOT REALLY KNOWING WHAT YOU’RE DOING BUT PRETENDING TO LOOK BUSY AND DAMN DO I KNOW HOW TO NIFFLE NAFFLE! - VIA THE (LEGENDARY) SUSIE DENT ON THIS WEEK’S BLANK PODCAST.

AND

AMV’S WALTER CAMPBELL RECKONS HE LISTENED TO AROUND 2,000 SONGS BEFORE DECIDING ON LEFTFIELD’S ‘PHAT PLANET’ (WHICH HADN’T EVEN BEEN RELEASED AT THAT TIME, BUT WAS A TIP OFF FROM A MATE WORKING ON A FILM WITH IT IN AT THE TIME) TO SOUNDTRACK THE INFAMOUS GUINNESS 'SURFER’ ADVERT. I GUESS NOT ENOUGH ARTISTS ARE INSPIRED TO MAKE MUSIC CONNOTING “THE SOUND OF BLOOD ON THE SURFER’S HEAD WHEN HE’S ON THE WAVES AND KNOWS HE COULD DIE”. PROBABLY A GOOD THING. ALTHOUGH I SUSPECT THE LEVEL OF NAUSEA INSTILLED BY ENYA’S ‘SAIL AWAY’ (INTENTIONALLY NO LINK) ISN’T A MILLION MILES AWAY FROM THAT YOU’D EXPECT UNDER THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES… - VIA MARKETING WEEK (AND PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE IN ADLAND THAT I FOLLOW ON THE TWITTERS).
