The Song That Never Ends

If you were expecting real bloggage with actual things of interest, sorry. That would mean I actually DID something, as opposed to attempting to debug my BF42/BFV Operation Market Garden conversion.

But we’ll make attempts. Starting with commentary on Mechwarrior, along the lines of, well, if it’s a collectable game, I ought to, you know, collect stuff. Like, say, all the Ullers. Everyone say hi to Malisa Nova Cat. Yay Malisa!

That aside, yesterday I sat down and said “I need to listen to U2’s Slane Castle show some more.” And I did. And what that really meant is that I listened to Until the End of the World and Wake Up Dead Man until, oh, I dunno, an hour ago. Straight. And when I drove up to Corvallis, I popped Achtung Baby in the CD changer so I could listen to Until the End of the World some more.

Because around here, we do that every so often.

And apparently there’s a new Guy Gavriel Kay book out, and apparently it’s sitting on my bed waiting for me to read it, because apparently the library is really awesome. Like how it hooked me up with a copy of On the Oceans of Eternity because apparently Borders just wasn’t bothering to carry it.

Apparently is apparently a cool word.

I thought about sticking in a longish talk about Island in the Sea of Time, the sequels, and how completely and utterly awesome they are, but Mom made brownies, and there’s one staring at me with that “eat me!” look on its face. So I think we’ll be doing that now.

Way to intensify my random urges to listen to Achtung Baby. I had Even Better Than The Real Thing stuck in my head a lot today, except when I had Calm Like a Bomb. Good brain music today, yes.

Also, now I want brownies.

Sorry. I was thinking of Spybreak, not Calm Like a Bomb. Heck, are the two even from the same movie? I think Spybreak’s from the first Matrix and CLaB is from Reloaded…

You would be correct.

Wake Up is the RATM song on the first soundtrack.
