Now what we did we do, playmate? All the hard work is undone! This is the Loop Era and we want to share once more with you on Tuesday 15th December: Frankie Roberts, Gentle Stranger, Plastique Fantastique, John Powell-Jones, a hashtag swarm reading from Maggie Roberts…

“…-un! Now that all the hard work, work is do-…”

“…-un! Now that all the hard work, work is do-…”

“…-un! Now that all the hard work, work is do-…”

It is the last song of High School Musical 2 and the characters are in the pool for a pool party. The song is All for One, an Invocation to encircle their eternal summer in a romance myth of love, law, bloodshed, against the backdrop of an old regime. “It’s not about the future, it’s not about the past,” they sing, “the Summer has just begun!”

“…-un! Now that all the hard work, work is do-…”

“…-un! Now that all the hard work, work is do-…”

“…-un! Now that all the hard work, work is do-…”

For a brief three seconds, Miley Cyrus appears in a yellow dress amongst the dancers. She has been summoned by Hannah Montana fans casting votes on the Disney Channel website. The viewers make the story. The spectator makes the picture. These three seconds are clipped from the movie and loop forever on Youtube:

“…-un! Now that all the hard work, work is do-…”

“…-un! Now that all the hard work, work is do-…”

“…-un! Now that all the hard work, work is do-…”

Spinning, like a pinwheel. The beginning of this eternal, Zoom built summer, running bloopers over the end credits. Forever, like a pinwheel.

The pool is closed. Everyone in the pool for a pool party.
