The Sun Did It For Me

A while back, Smarty Pants and his buddy the Mammarian helped me make a soundtrack for the LARP game I’ve been hosting for the last year or so. They did this cool layering thing, with a whole bunch of cool sound effects and music and such. It was incredibly cool.

Had I known that the sun was in the business of making soundtracks that sound like Dead Can Dance and Really Terribly Serious Wolves hanging out with some Horny Whales and maybe a handful of those crazy throat-singing monks thrown in for good measure, I’d have asked them to incorporate this. Like, layered over and over and over and over. Because this is the only thing I want to listen to right now.

Voltaire said something like : “Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd”. I rather like Voltaire. I rather dig the fact that we are constantly learning. I mean, if we’re doing it right, we’re always learning new things. And this, this music, these beautiful sounds …well. They’re a mystery. I used to watch the northern lights and I imagined I could hear them singing to me. This is how I imagined them sounding, strangely enough.

  1. What do you mean, you “imagined I could hear them singing”? The northern lights do sing. Well, mostly they hum, because they couldn’t be bothered to remember the words. But the aurora does make sounds. So what you thought you were imagining was really taking place.

i make squee noises when you tell me stuff.
