Hello... hello... hello...

Holy shit. I don't think my eyes have ever gone so wide for the first bars of a CD as they did when I stuck Dizzee's Showtime in my computer. It locks into this fucked-up, seasick loop that's almost schaffel while Dizzee intones "hello... hello... hello..." over and over and over.

Only after it had gone on for one and a half minutes -- making it the most avant-garde intro to a pop album ever -- and I stopped it and the CD refused to restart did I realize that it was but an inadvertant Ovalism due to anti-pirating encoding, or some such.

For a second, though, I thought he'd gone completely off the deep end.

To be continued, as soon as I round up a proper CD player.

had the exact same experience with that CD, except i tried burning it on iTunes and ended up with one track of the "hello" loop and a bunch more tracks of silence. but then... it completely crashed my PC at work.

i'm not going to blame them for the copy protection, but at least give us some warning y'know?
