I'm still getting used to surfing the planet, and now I've been stung by an internet jellyfish. It seems that one of the links in the "Netlabels" sidebar on the right of this blog didn't actually go to the intended label but to, erm, a not entirely music-centric site that features people thoroughly enjoying themselves sans clothes and sans inhibitions. Usually, I copy and paste web urls to make sure the link works properly, but this time I must have typed in the address and, would you believe it, the lack of a hyphen meant I'd typed in an address to an entirely different website with exactly the same name. I've corrected the link but, oh, the embarrassment. I am now this colour.
By way of an apology to both the netlabel, Thierry Boucetta aka The Orientalist, and the esteemed CTW readership, at least I can now point you to the squeaky-clean link: Fresh Poulp, a lovely French netlabel run by lovely French people. It features some great albums, including one of my favourite netlabel finds, 1000 Sounds Lotus by The Orientalist (also with corrected link) and is well worth visiting, especially if you want to feel trendy and Gallic - often the same thing, in my limited experience. And their octopus always looks that annoyed, though I can't help feeling it's staring at me.
Right, I'm off to confession. Behave yourselves - not that there's anything wrong with ripping the clothes off each other and getting some McLovin' before we all die of old age/natural disasters/global warming; it sounds like a plan to me.
(...and I thought CTW was globally popular because of my astoundingly impressive reviews. Serves me right for using the word "pawn" in my previous post. Pawn, I said. Pawn. I'll try to, you know, actually recommend some music in my next post. It's been a while...)
