WINKS, THE: Too Hot to Be This Cool: CD

Jul 22, 2006

Sounds like a post-Supercharger edition of Girlschool (but factoring in some other factor that allows the subjects to rocket thru thirteen songs in eighteen minutes), which is not, in and of itself, enough to seriously renew or resuscitate my flagging interest in The Punk Rock; however, when i clicked on the multimedia content files (that means "movie") and the Quicktime™ file opened up not in a generic player, but in a cool oval with a thick pink border and a Winks logo above the screen and a background that blended from white on the top to pink on the bottom, in what would be the rough equivalent of a 20 lpi screen, with little white control buttons with pink arrows and such on them, well... holy shit, color me reborn. You heard it here first, folks: MULTIMEDIA CONTENT IS GO!!! BEST SONG: "Saturday Night" BEST SONG TITLE: I dunno, "Saturday Night" seemed to go down a storm for the Bay City Rollers. FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: As much as i love the custom-made winkin' pink Winks Quicktime™ player, it is my sad duty to report that the thing doesn't have a pause button, and that neither the fast forward nor rewind buttons are functional on my computer. I frown upon such slipshod functionality! Also, i can't spell the word "resuscitate" without singing the Sweet Baby song "Resuscitation."
