For better or worse, I expect tomorrow to be like every other day. In other words, I will be truly shocked if The Beast really does show up at 6pm. On the upside, I will be in the town in which I’d first appear in if I were The Beast: the modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah of Las Vegas. Maybe that’s not an upside, but at least I’ll realize it’s really going down nice and early, and be able to get a jump on my repenting.
So anyway, the song: ‘Society’ by Eddie Vedder.
This is off the 2007 Into the Wild Soundtrack which has been deciding to play itself a lot lately while my iPod is in random mode. The song ‘Rise’ got the most radio play, but I think this one is my favorite: it’s so sad and sweet.
Assuming we’re all still here, Eddie Vedder has a new album coming out – Ukele Songs – at the end of the month. I like the ukelele. It reminds me of Hawaii. Maybe I’ll have to learn how to play it one of these days? Anyone know if it’s much different from the guitar (which I can play)?
It’s a beautiful day here and I need to run some errands, so that’s it for this post. Enjoy your Rapture…or not. For better or worse, I’ll still be here, and I’m hopeful the world will carry on as it always has: messed up, sad, depraved, disappointing and yet somehow impossibly beautiful.
