Popular: An Apology

FT + Popular9 comments • 1,903 views

Hello readers!

It has been a lot longer than I thought and hoped it would be since I put an entry up. Not that I have nothing to say about “Vogue” – quite the opposite – but I’ve had a difficult few weeks living at my in-laws* mostly without the internet, while our bathroom and kitchen have been rebuilt. This is now at last finished… just in time for a mini-break in Germany. I’m back on Thursday, and either then or on Friday we’ll have a new, stollen-fuelled Popular entry once again.

Thanks to everyone for your patience!

*not difficult because of them!

    Wenn alles andere scheitert, und Sie werden lange
    Etwas besser als heute
    Ich kenne einen Ort, wo man wegkommen können

    courtesy of Google translator I should add

    Schauen Sie sich um, überall wo Sie wiederum ist Stollen
    Es ist überall, dass Sie gehen
    Du versuchen alles, um zu entkommen
    Der Schmerz der Laib-förmigen Kuchen mit Trockenobst dass Sie wissen

    I’m in such a Robyn zone right now Tom, that your note instantly triggered for me both ‘Fembots, have kitchens too’ and ‘the germans are killing me, my kitchen is killing me,….’ I also have a post on the evolution of Hang with Me here if anyone’s interested.

    @3 Swanstep…nice work on HWM. Until now, I thought it had the strong aroma of Bruce Hornsby about it, but now I’m glad to be corrected.

    In the meantime, until Tom gets deep in vogue, here’s entry #110 in Then Play Long – and we’re still in the sixties:

    Hello all – the weather has conspired against Popular, i.e. I have been stuck in Germany since Tuesday w/no computer. Back now – probably see you on Tuesday.

    Guten Tag our popular uber lord.Got stranded myself for a week in england after the iceland volcano back in april so I can understand the frustration.

    Must say its a shame popular has been inactive because we could have had the xmas no. 1 of 1990 posted on december 25th 2010. ah well not to worry.

    I don’t suppose this is the time to be posting links to Kraftwerk doing Autobahn live on late-night us network tv in 1975, but by god it’s wonderful.
