Unexpected Musicology: 101

I was watching Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back on one of my many unnecessary movie channels, and I heard a song that sounded strangely familiar. It struck me as odd, because it was a song I knew I had recently heard, and didn't expect to hear it in a movie from a few years ago. I checked the soundtrack listing on Amazon, but nothing seemed familiar. So, I went into my music folder, chose a band, clicked on a song, and alas, I found it. To my surprise, it was the New Pornographers. Granted, the movie isn't that old (2 years), but I was under the impression they were a relatively new band. Obviously, I was proven wrong. Chase and I had a chance to see them a short time ago at Bumbershoot, and while they weren't 'bad,' per se, they most certainly weren't anything special. I don't know why, but they didn't seem to have the energy, or the excitment that a band really needs to have in order to perform live. And, though the lead singer chick was very attractive (yes I'm shallow), she came across as kind of snobbish and stuck up, and I immediately began to lose interest. Don't get me wrong, though, their music is awesome- and she really was hot...but if you want to hear the music, just put in the cd, because a live show won't prove to be much different. But, you never know, maybe they were just tired...or something.

As for the music in film aspect of this babble, this kind of thing has happened to me before. I had discovered Pete Yorn about a year ago, and just assumed no one had ever really heard of him. A few weeks after listening to his album, I watched Me, Myself, and Irene, only to find that one of his songs (Strange Condition) was in that movie, too.

So then, what does all this mean? Well, it's really quite simple...I need to pay a lot more attention when I watch movie's.

Why on earth do would-be feminists adopt male standards of how to be sexual?

Whenever morality is based on theology, whenever right is made dependent on divine authority, the most immoral, unjust, infamous things can be justified and established.

Ethiopians make their gods black and snub-nosed, Thracians red-haired and with blue eyes; so also they conceive the spirits of the gods to be like themselves.

In practice all men are atheists; they deny their faith by their actions.

You do pay a price for stating it simply, namely it's easier for the professionals to misunderstand it.

The basic anxiety, the anxiety of a finite being about the threat of non-being, cannot be eliminated. It belongs to existence itself.

To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection.

People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.

If you would be a real seeker after truth, you must at least once in your life doubt, as far as possible, all things.
