peacocks and polar bears

The synth sound in the Art of Noise's "(do) DONNA (do)" is effectively the same one as the really great noise in Justin Timberlake's "My Love," it's taken me until now to figure out. "Let us say, for instance," my old teacher wrote, "there are but six things left to feel in the world, six things left to put your mouth on: Bliss & Loss--for two, Trembling & Compulsion--four, Desire & Disease--you see?" The moment in which I realized my thought-train was going seriously astray was when I looked at the mottled pink board, iron filings dusting its translucent dimples, and thought: "oh, I'm not allowed to use that."

Also, and much more coherently: new Sterling pictures!
