*05.07.10 Update: Hmmmm… You may have noticed this ain’t available on iTunes yet - but hang tight! There have been a few hitches, however it is on its way. We’ll keep you posted as soon as it’s up. x *
Writing these updates and mailers is all well and good. I mean, I feel as though we’re connecting, you know? Bonding. But it’s binary-bonding. It’s all codes, all numbers. ‘111100010101000000 M&S HQ x’. Is it real? I want to reach out to you, to touch you… If we can’t embrace, then at least let’s show our shiny faces, eh? I’m not suggesting you send pictures into Mumford HQ, that’d be weird… And possibly illegal. These waters have witnessed some mailing list larks in the far, dark past and I won’t be dragged there again, I won’t! I can’t! I’ll have no part in it! But what if you could see me? How can We. Make. This. Happen? Imagine a world of TV mailers! Imagine you didn’t read, but watched this mailer, on your television! But how would it look? I like to think, a little bit like this…
Enter M&S HQ. Tall, handsome - crescendo of laughter left in my walking wake hints at my well good sense of humour - wearing a suit; black tie vibes, white glove flava, lacing moves on all the single ladies. Mysterious platter in hand; silver tray intrigue baby. On it sits an envelope. A ravishing blonde takes the sealed note seductively and opens it gratefully. Beautiful blue eyes scan the words before she breathlessly and excitedly reads aloud…
