Editorial - June 2003
Welcome to the first editorial of the new regime, engineered in Germany to last a lifetime… or something!
First off, thanks and good luck to Neil, who will doubtless be unable to resist contributing in the near and far future. So I’ll save the eulogies, other than to say: Remix64 is in good shape, so I’m just helping to keep it running.
What will I cover as dictator of the most mighty organisation in the entire world? (er... right...)
Or news about Remix64 plus a suitable comment about the strangeness of life.
Like the middle-eight part in songs – you know, the bits that are only there to stop people getting bored of the chorus and the verse: they’re usually 8 bars long. Can you remember the middle-eight to ANY of the hit songs of recent years? The most silly one I’ve heard recently (and even for mentioning this I have to apologise to Matt Gray, since he worked on the song) is Sugababe’s
Round Round, which suddenly stops in the middle to turn into a slow waltz-y blues-y thing. Then it just gets going again: it’s like they had a spare song lying around! In fact, the same thing happened to Lennon and McCartney on
We Can Work it Out: it started off as two separate songs, with Paul’s upbeat verse and chorus (
Try and see it my way), but Lennon had the
Life is very short, and there’s no time for fussing and fighting my friendsbit lying around. One insertion later, and a classic song is born. So I guess not all middle-eights are worthless!
Er… sorry, off track again. Let’s summarise:
2) Everything here is great!
3) I’ll be trying to keep it that way!
4) There may be the occasional new idea, but any more work and Markus will explode into little bits, so I’ll try and avoid that. It’s for the best…
5) I’d mention BIT Live Germany, but Dr. Future does that below. Good luck, Dr.! I hope that people will submit their diaries of the event afterwards so Dr. can use them. I wish I could go, but hey, I’m a party pooper parent personified…
Chris, not this man, who should be considered armed and extremely funny.
