The music currently on my Winamp inspired me for this blog post. The first time I was confronted with the word “fluffy” it was some 1996, when the computer game “Worms” was still young. The game was quite something special, because you could play it one on one on a PC, a feature you would otherwise only have on game consoles. The set up for the game is a 2 dimensional landscape. In this landscape your team consists of 4 little worms, which can fight each other. The game is round based. So the worms get their chance to kill each other with a huge choice of weapons alternately. At that time I somehow fancied (link to blogpost on fancy) a little worm named “Fluffy”.

fluf·fy [-¦ê] adj. 1. flaumig; 2. thea. Am. ugs. leicht, anspruchslos

fluffy <food> (ice cream defect) flockig; luftig; schaumig; schneeig

fluffy <mat> flauschig

fluffy <pap> wolkig

    *"... And when it would rain they would all turn. They were beautiful - the most beautiful skies as a matter of fact. The sunsets were purple and red and yellow and... on fire. And the clouds would catch the colors everywhere. That's unique... I used to look at them all the time."

    Definately my favourite sogn from "The orb". Nice to hear, that you still keep it on your playlist :-)
