- Post Festive Season Chillout #13: 1998

I'm starting to regret committing to getting all the fifties out there, but there you go! On to 1998 then, a time when I was living in the United States and generally gaining lots of weight. Speaking of America, this was the year of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, which basically centered around how scandallous it was for any woman to not wash a dress covered with semen for several months. Elsewhere, the world was intrduced to the iMac:

The IMac

In football, England were undone at the world cup by those dastardly Argentinians:

Adam, did you ever do the 1982 dual chart? I don't remember seeing it. I spent an awful lot of time on the Wiki and emailing Ken Garner in order to get it completed: it's here, if you haven't and fancy a gander.

Cheers Steve. I have the '82 charts buried away on DVDs somewhere in the vault and had put it off as it would have meant uploading the files to divshare.

Think you just saved me a lot of work!
