The last of the festive Twiglet dust is brushed away, sad Christmas trees line the streets ready to trip up mobile tweeters and, as the new year rolls on, blogs, musicians et al ask things like “Is the attention span dead?”.
Well, funnily enough, connection, creativity and “what happens next” are all themes of this rather splendid documentary. It’s particularly relevant too if you’re a musician, blogger, photographer, filmmaker, etc. (and you’ll be pleased to know that it’s not all gloom/doom/farked/bomb’d).
However, aside from watching this excellent film, getting philosophical and gorging on crunchy snacks, we’re getting our glockenspiel together to record something new soon that’s very different from “Avant-Guarded”. We’ll also be playing our first show of ’14 on the 23rd January if you can’t wait for the recording.
Anyway, seeing as the budgie isn’t budging for now, we’d like to give thanks to these avant-guarders; Breaking More Waves, Mouser, Kick Kick Snare, Drunken Werewolf, With Guitars, Sleep In Music, Tuppence Magazine, Alfitude, Soundsphere Mag, Seb Rashii Culture Zine, Nerdy Frames, ARE! ezine, Earbuddy, It’s My Kind Of Scene, The Big Beat Blog, Fame Magazine, The Von Pip Express, Just Music That I Like and Solcofn for giving Eugene Budgerigard a break from his mundane existence.
Beaking in tongues,
