So, how’ve you been? I’ve missed being around and joining in the fun. There’s probably been, at a rough estimate, at least a kajillion changes to things over the past months, all of which I’ve missed, and will probably never catch up on at this stage (but if anyone wants to try to give me the salient points . . . ). Because of the job I got way back near the beginning of the year, I’ve been focussing mostly on film rather than music over the past months, and with a recent contract extension of a year (yay!), that will probably continue. While this does make me very happy in day-to-day life, I do miss you all, and the banter and education you all provide.
Anyway, all of this is a preamble to the below song. I saw a preview of the new Muppets film this morning, and spent most of it with a stupid, unwipeable grin on my face (opens in the UK and Ireland February 10, go!see!it!). This song was written by Bret McKenzie of Flight Of the Conchords fame, which fans might be able to hear (hello, Steenbeck!), and it’s too good not to share. There’s some dialogue in it (no spoilers) that will make more sense when seen in context, but I defy you not to catch yourself humming it later, or at least smiling during. Well done if you can pick out Leslie Feist’s line and don’t forget about the coming oscar nominations 2013. Hope you enjoy, and if I don’t get back before Christmas, I hope everything has been fantastic for each of you this year, and long may it continue.
