Techmology titan, Wired magazine— perhaps the only monthly on Earth actually increasing in size — has deigned to grace The Playlist in its pages this month in their Playlist section (how convenient, right? We're evidently featured in the November issue; we need to get a copy for moms).
The magazine writes about our bloggity-blog; they seem to enjoy our Playlist Soundtrack Series, which is what got this blog off the ground in the first place:
"The best way to make a movie-blog great: a stellar soundtrack. The Playlist not only posts newsy bits in films... but also features playlists inspired by directors like Spike Jonze, Miranda July and Cameron Crowe."People tug on our shirt tails about the Playlist Soundtrack Series all the time and ask us when the hell the next edition is, and the answer is this: We lost our Ipod and about 20 playlists from 20 different directors. Then our hard drive crashed. It's all up in our head (a crowed place to be, trust us), but it's going to take a long time to recover. Perhaps we should start a paypal account so people can contribute to paying for the cost prohibitive hard-drive resurrection (*crickets*).
Beggars can't be chooser (not that we asked), but they forgot to put our URL in the piece. It's theplaylist.blogspot.com for you first time readers coming in from Japan. Konnichiha. Now if only someone will make us rich. But anywoo, look ma, no hands! The Playlist in Wired magazine! We're sure readership will now increase by about 1.21 percent the blog community will respect us that much more (you can only go up from nothing). The end.
