Parenting, relationships, debauchery and of course animals are all covered Memes include an image of the Queen and Prince Charles having a hearty laugh with the caption ‘Remembering you don’t work weekends, but other people do. The Internet’s Favourite Memes reveals the term ‘memetics’ was first proposed by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins in his popular book The Selfish Gene. Commonly, however, scientists note a meme may be a phrase, catchy jingle, or behavior. Dawkins hesitated to strictly define the term, but he noted that tunes, ideas, catch-phrases, clothes fashions, and ways of making pots or building arches could all be memes. Memetics suggests that memes have existed for as long as human beings have been on the planet.

I revisited some of those blogs as I binge watched it last month, and I have to say, there are definitely parallels between the Lost and Duran Duran fan communities! Before I go any further, if you have never seen Lost and think you might want to someday, stop reading. Lost premiered in the fall of As such, Lost developed parallel plot lines: There were adventures on the island as the survivors tried to adapt, and there were back stories for each character and, as it turned out, many connections among them.
In re-watching the show, and then going back and reading various blog and message board entries associated with each episode, I noticed the many similarities with my experience as a Duran Duran fan. Soap Opera fans vs. In the Lost fan community, the two main types of fans are not necessarily distinguished by their familiarity with the show as they are with their motivation for watching it.

But this is a record that grabs attention right from the start, with its surfeit of invention, ideas and imagination. Glyn’s music is difficult to get a handle on at first, with so many first-impressions forming a bewildering headlong rush through the ears. The kinda spaghetti-western-smalltown image that might readily be conjured up by the album’s title is one that translates into the slightly cheesy musical idiom Glyn adopts on Yahoo!
And, in keeping with those tales of the old West too I suppose, Glyn’s writing displays a strong sense of narrative too, as proved by the eight-minute epic Ballad Of Deano. Basically, Glyn can’t resist drawing attention to himself by means of undeniably impressive, powerfully crafted musical settings and lyrics that passionately and eloquently embrace entirely justified criticism of the unforgivingly corrupt corporate world in which we try to survive. Also, you can’t ignore Glyn’s acute and well-developed feel for bright and bold instrumental colour and creative texturing: If you take things at sound-face value, there’s quite a feelgood aura to the album generally, notably on the bouncy sunshine-pop of Down Amongst The Living and the iron-clad stompsome beat of School Reunion, and even on the more sinister numbers like The Doomed Ship Allegory and The Clown a very Bowie-esque portrait of a paedophile.
Payback-time comes quite literally on Groomed, an examination of coercion and abuse, which comes on like a breathless cross between The Cure’s Love Cats and the Hustle theme tune. A first hearing of tracks like Kafkaesque World can be distinctly overwhelming, with its potent juxtapositions lavish musical setting with smooth crooning delivery to voice the thoughts and words of a torturer.
Elsewhere, perhaps, it can be all too easy to get the feeling that Glyn is deliberately setting out to make an Impact capital “I”! Yet, just as with any situation where there’s a definite brimming-over-surfeit of artistic creativity, this eventually involves an element of excess that needs trimming – or at least channelling: In addition, and in spite of the strong sense of integrity that permeates Glyn’s lyrical and musical vision, I can’t altogether escape a feeling that pastiche is lurking not too far away at times; and this can leave an often desperately unsettling taste.
But then again, as with much music that unsettles, to whatever degree, it’s perversely compelling, and against initial expectations I’ve found myself both returning to a good deal of this disc and keen to explore Glyn’s two previous albums.. Education should be fun, and a child’s natural enjoyment of, and willing participation in music, can be both a vital element and a useful tool.
