Blog readers (not the ones who post in the comments about that day's comic - I don't think they read the actual words) will be pleased to hear that I am on the mend. But I am totally ravaged by disease. I have the deth-voice (kind of "GRAARRGHH"), I cough a lot, and I have renounced listening to all music that is not YACHT ROCK.
Yacht rock is a special kind of music. It's aspirational, it's midtempo, it's smooth. It's the kind of thing that Don Johnson would isten to. It's Michael McDonald, Hall and Oates, Christopher Cross. Of course Andrew Gold, of course Fleetwood Mac circa 1987. From now on, I refuse to listen to anything that doesn't slip down easy.
Learn more about Yacht Rock in the short films at Channel 101. You will find yourself transformed. My favourite is episode 3, but it's best to jump in at the start.
Trust me on this one - forget the future: we're on a yacht now.
