It’s a familiar, dull sense of panic. As time creeps on, your poor, unsuspecting elf remains inert, going about day to day business and that big date creeps up on you. Before you know it, it’s the birthday of the one that you love and you’re left empty handed as friends congratulate them on hitting another minor milestone. Impotent, they greet you with a gift, and you crumble with your self worth, the realisation that you are blessed to be in their presence.
Okay, so maybe it’s not quite as bad as forgetting your wife’s 30th or whatever, but waking up to find out that Cascine – probably, truth be told, my favourite label of the moment – has hit the year landmark came with the awful realisation that I might be much further away from that ‘superfan’ status I once aspired to achieve. No matter – they know how to take the edge off, with this Jensen Sportag reworking of Shine 2009’s Paula Abdul featuring So Free coming wrapped up in the fanciest of wrapping paper and a little bow on the top.
