Computer Love

Dearest Friends, I'm so happy! What a story I have for you! But it's not really mine to tell. And you may already have heard about it over at Dearest Vinyl Villain's. So if you have, hold on to that warm, fuzzy feeling and feel free to skip on down to the celebratory tunes below.

So, that story. It's about e-boy meets e-girl in Blogtopia, then real boy meets real girl, in Utopia. Only with the Isle of Man standing in as proxy for Utopia. It's got everything: tea, twee, goth, and, erm, (sea) froth. And if it doesn't warm at least one of the cockles of your heart, then I weep for you.

So open yourself to joy. Then read about it here and here, and afterwards go here and listen starting at 03:04. Finally, pour yourself a bevvy of your choice and toast e-boy & e-girl while listening to these:

Aw, bless FiL. This is truly kind and so lovely of you, and what fantastic choons as well. I'll have to make a second trip back to grab all these gems (Heavenly! Kraftwerk!). Of course, Blogtopia love, as you say, has its obvious disavantages, but on the plus side, it leaves a permanent record of your collective geekiness. For example, I found a note I'd left for Simon about three years ago bitching at him for leaving the Wedding Present out of some interview he gave about his favorite artists. Anyway, thanks again, FiL. This made my weekend. x.

Hi FiL,
You're a lovely man, and thanks so much for all your very very kind words here there and everywhere... :)
And this lovely lady above me has changed my life so so much, and all of it's wonderful.

I remember the interview, but can't remember where it was...
But I remember being berated by Liz for the stupid stupid oversight of leaving off the Weddoes, something I have an idea I will never be allowed to forget. :)
And quite right too.

Many thanks again FiL, and all the best to you and yours.

With love

Awww that was a lovely tale indeed. I do feel all warm and fuzzy.

Matthew said...

Anyone omitting the Weddoes from a list of favourite artists needs to be disciplined.

It's for your own good.

My heart feels better now, after reading their story.

Thank you so much, Fil, for sharing the links. :)

I also like the picture with's me and Daddy robot, shortly before making Baby Robot. ;)


I wish big red pixilated hearts would appear above MY head...

I hope you’re well.

Take care,
~ Ash

FiL said...

Dearest Simon, at least you now know that for the sake of marital harmony you must NEVER, EVER excude the Weddoes...

Dearest Liz, at least you'll be able to show the Sex Gang Children your blog archives instead of tatty old polaroids...

Dearest Rachel, indeed, I too am still all fuzzy...

Dear Matthew, discipline is all fine, as ong as everyone knows the safe word ;-P

Dearest Ash, I'm so pleased that this touched you as well. Simon & Liz are good folk. And we just need to see if we can't sort out the html code for your own pixelated heart!! :)
