'Lost playlists' and Chipwrapper in the Guardian's Music sections
I've had a couple of mentions in the Guardian's music section recently.
You may have spotted in my Delicious links that Steven Wells described blogging list-making music fans as "the antithesis of rock'n'roll" on the Guardian Music blog, citing "Lifetime of lost playlists" as a prime example.
There was also a mention for Chipwrapper at the weekend, in Johnny Dee's piece about the history of the "Now That's What I Call Music" albums - 'NOW that's what I call a pop fact!'. In the course of listing (music lists again eh?) a series of facts about the compilation albums, he pulled out some random puntastic newspaper headlines which he 'culled' from chipwrapper.co.uk.
- Now that's what I call a storm (Guardian)
- Now that's what I call a mobile desktop (Telegraph)
- Now that's what I call a nursing home (Independent)
- Now that's what I call torture (New Statesman)
- Now that's what I call a role model (Independent)
- Now that's what I call a driver's car (Independent)
- Now that's what I call a Hollywood fat cat (Independent)
As far as I am aware, and indeed, in a slightly recursive search, as far as Chipwrapper is concerned, it is the first time that Chipwrapper has made the national press.
