The Hunt

A few weeks ago, I heard a couple of killer tracks on Woody McDonald's show 'Wig Wham Bam' on RRR. I will now refer to this as 'having picked up the scent' because since then, I have been on the hunt for the albums that these tracks appear on.

I am realising that without the need to track, hunt and kill wild animals for food, there still remains a dark part of my psyche that is yearning for fulfillment. And, thanks to the commercial / capitalist world we live in, it has found it in commerce.

Really, the music / CD / DVD or whatever, is just an excuse to take one of your poisioned plastic cards and swipe it deftly through the heart of a trembling retailer, and leave triumphantly with your prize.

"Ha HA", you exclaim. "I have wealth, and I'm not afraid to use it."

Though, I remember not so long ago when I was just another scavenging, slobbering fiscal weakling, swooning around at the bulging stench-filled carcass of a great heaving supermarket, sifting through coins just hoping to score a bargain.

Anyhoo, Tally-Ho! I'm going out to pay much more than recommended retail for music; just because I can!
