Monday Meditations: Everything In Its Right Place

Welcome to the new site, one and all! Here’s the first post written just for this site. We’re experiencing anxiety through Radiohead and Samuel Beckett.

SONG OF THE WEEK

“Everything In Its Right Place” by Radiohead

Something about this song will haunt you. That simple piano melody, and that wheedling little voice singing will linger in your mind much longer than it should. Unease and paranoia simply drip from this music.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“I don’t seem to be able… (long hesitation) to depart.”

Samuel Beckett, Waiting for Godot (click the link to go to Act I of this existentialist play)

Tuesday Meditations: Weirdness and Our World

Harmony in this world is disrupted. Thus we see Hitler’s ability to bamboozle the German people, the mystifying success of the Transformers movies, and the fact that this post is a day late. Embrace the weirdness, writing friends.

SONG OF THE WEEK: “Paranoid Android” by Radiohead

Don’t look for meaning in the lyrics. They don’t make a lick of sense. Listen to the music and brace yourself.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.”

Sucker Punch, 2010
