I always get happy when I see people reference blur on reddit. Though it's usually Parklife. Just makes me wish /r/blur could grow... I'm a mod there and it has a special place in my heart haha. Wish I knew of a way to get more subscribers.

Reddit has been going nuts over Phase 4 Gorillaz art lately, have you noticed it?

I believe everyone is getting a bit TOO excited. The art is awesome and does get my hyped, but who knows when the new album will actually come out!

Few random questions that aren't really of any note but whatever.
1. In the Think Tank booklet where it randomly says "Celebrity Harvest", I've heard this was the working name to a Gorillaz film. Is that true and if so whatever happened to that?
2. Do we know what is said quietly before the first verse in Feel Good Inc?
3. I asked this on the old Blur Questions thread but I can't remember the answer, why is the 'R' purple on the back cover of 13 for BLUREMI? Does it mean 'Blur are EMI' or something? Just wondered if anyone knew for sure but I doubt it

As this is a thread for 'general Blur' then I want to appreciate this promo disc of Think Tank for sharing what I think whenever I see the Copy Control logo confirmed.

1.) Yeah, they worked on a Gorillaz films quite a few times but they basically gave up since the studio they originally got to do it (Dreamworks) wanted to change Gorillaz into some kid-friendly family film or some garbage like that. Celebrity Harvest was just one of the scenarios that involved like...cannibals and zombies and stuff. It was supposed to star Gorillaz as actors playing the role of different characters for a different story. The other idea was just about the band.

2.) Are you talking about in the video? I think that was somebody calling someone else a dickhead.

I think that's correct - it's Thank You to EMI

Not worthy of its own thread so here'll do - whatever happened to Cara? She used to play keyboard for Blur in the 90s. I was in a permanent stupor from 94, and as the century turned, and when I emerged out of the fog she was gone. What happened to her?
