I'm giving you everything.
You saw it...right? You saw the video?
What video, you say...?
The video. THE video - come on. You know what I'm talking about.
Well if you really don't - you'll see it when you get to the bottom of this post. I've placed it conveniently there so you'll have to read the whole thing to get to it. (Or just scroll there right now if you must).
You scrolled. It's ok, I get it. I would have scrolled too.
I don't know what it is about nostalgic throwbacks to my teenage boy 'n' girl band loving era these days but here I am again with another another 90s-ish themed post.... this time courtesy of The Spice Girls. Which you know, because you scrolled.
There's something about looking backwards to go forward, or going forward and then coming back, then circling around before ending up just where you started... what I'm trying to say, basically, is that video gave me all those gooey teenage feelings of endless possibility - the sort of magic nostalgia that only comes with re-listening to the classic hits of your childhood, or re-watching comfort movies at Christmas.
Which brings me neatly to the most wonderful time of the year, and all it brings - the twinkling lights, the cosy family get togethers, the latest John Lewis ad...
Speaking of ads, and nostalgia, this year like Damn Daniel I'm back at it again on the airwaves for Costa coffee, encouraging listeners to avoid Christmas shopping and treat themselves instead. Pretty sound advice I feel.
This one, for a change, was recorded in my home studio. Something old, something new.
This year also marks the fourth year of my debut novel The Glass Door being out in the world. How time flies when you're anxiously re-checking your Amazon and Goodreads reviews.
Thanks for reading all the way to the end and for sharing another special moment with me over a Costa coffee. And if this email leaves you wanting for more, you can always, call me.
Until next time, toodles!
