You know how people always say, “I remember exactly where I was when [insert momentous occasion here] happened”? I can say the same for when I found out that Fab was going to be doing a special Daft Punk album launch sale. I was talking to my friend David, the buyer for Books & Media at Fab, and I said, “Hey, have you heard the teaser on that new Daft Punk single? So good.” And he said, “Yeah. We’re doing an album event with them,” and grinned. I felt like I was in that moment in The Sound of Music when Maria Von Trapp is on top of the mountain and starts spinning around in circles. I would have replicated that move, but ultimately I lack the effortless grace and lightness of Julie Andrews.
I sat at my desk and immediately g-chatted my co-worker Aja, who responded with the following:
Aja: SHUT YOUR FACE
She was right. It was exciting news.
I really miss Marianne and this is only making it worse/better because obviously she is crushing it. Also this truly is journalism at it’s finest- it makes my heart sing.
