I say ineptly but weirdly, in the last week for some weird, weird reason, a few days ago fb decided to start marketing unto muggins (i.e. me) a 6-CD box set of recordings by the Revillos.
I'm not against the Revillos exactly, they were certainly not part of my teenagehood so to get that engaged with their oeuvre would need a big extra prod of my imagination. But what I wonder is why CR, or fb, decided I would be in the market for something like this.*
What also intrigues me is why fb, presumably the most skilled and agile social media producer out, is so freakin' boring so often. My feed is so samey and stale, and while obviously I only know that because it is my default distraction so I am frequently going to it and realising 'hmm, this stuff was dull the first time around' (and therefore perhaps reinforcing to the algorithm either that whatever it shows me I will scroll for a while, or perhaps suggesting I like it that way) I can't see this as sustainable, perhaps for my own (this is overstating it, but I'll just say it) sanity I should wean myself off this 'feed'.
* I fully concede that I am more likely than most fools my age with my types of interests to take on something like this on spec. But three discs are live shows and two are iterations of the same album... sure, great, sounds good, I dunno...
