Well, I don't think these are Good Omens... [May. 19th, 2003|06:04 pm]

Every now and then, I have songs that follow me around. I'm not referring to songs that are currently popular and are being overplayed right now. I mean songs that are now just part of standard playlists on the stations I listen to, and suddenly I hear them played a whole lot more often for no apparent reason. And, I've noticed that in at least a few cases, they tend to relate to things that are about to happen to me (usually just the title, not the actual lyrics...).

For instance, "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zepplin was being played on the radio much more often than normal...And then, my grandmother died.

Right before Amy left, I was hearing "Don't Come Around Here No More" by Tom Petty quite a bit.

Currently, two songs are haunting me.

"Walk on the Wild Side" by Lou Reed
and "Sorrow" by Bad Religion

Ummm? Can I choose one?

choose wisely.

That first one usually leads to the second, but enjoy your walk.

Re: choose wisely.

I did, thanks.

Destination sucks, though...

Shame about that.

Hey, speaking of "Good Omens", Neil Gaiman talked about that briefly at comic-con. Apparently, Terry Gilliam was set to direct the film adaptation, but they couldn't find an American distributor willing to touch it, and eventually Gilliam backed out to work on films that actually have a chance of being made. (Ironically, I think this lead him to the experience which became Lost in La Mancha) So, the film's in Development Hell, and this is not likely to change anytime soon.

Speaking of shames...

That does quite suck. Last time I had heard Neil (I keep wanting to type Niel, but that's Niels...) speak on the subject, it was Terry's next project...

And, as he said, "I knew they had the idea when they said that they wanted to include the footnotes."

So, crap.

How the hell do you include the footnotes?

Ooh. By making them DVD extras. I can think of a dozen ways to present 'em there.

But that's probably not what they had in mind.

Kurt, this is going to sound strange coming from me since I do wonder about "signs" too, but try not to look too much into this. There is such a thing as self-fulfilling (no, this has nothing to do with you, self - ha)prophecies, so please be careful! You might hear those songs on the radio, but have your own set of songs in your mind... I know I might sound too Susie Sunshine, but just think about it.

Never underestimate the power of the subconscious...

Find a new song.
