Accidental soundtrack

I live in the Mojave Desert and ride the bus to work, which also involves a little walking.  Much of this time is spent listening to Pandora on my headphones.  My musical tastes are considered eccentric by many of my friends, though not all of them think so.  One of the feeds consists of music from movies.  This had led to the occasional epic coincidence.  Here are 2 of my favorites.

The bus was just pulling into traffic when Ride Of The Valkyrie started playing.

I was just passing a Joshua tree as I was starting a walk across a large vacant area when the theme from The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly started playing.  I actually laughed out loud at that one.

Would The Prince Be Just As Eager To Kiss Sleeping Good Personality?.


The question I’ve had for years involves the movie Wizard OfOz.  Dorothy thought all witches are ugly.  Glinda tells her that “only bad witches are ugly”, then goes on to wonder what kind of witch Dorothy is.  Does that mean she considers Dorothy ugly enough to qualify as a bad witch?


Tag Cloud

I’m somewhat new to WordPress and blogging.  Sort of easing my way into it.  Stopping myself after a few sentences is my usual behavior.  Today I’ve been reading a few posts of Curmudgeon-At-Large, through one of them I stumbled upon Fear No Weebles.  Both are wonderful and I highly recommend them to all (well… to most).

Anyway, what I finally noticed today, and that I should have been paying more attention to all along, is the “Tag Cloud”.  The amazing variety of tags in one cloud is staggering.  So much temptation.  And so many guilty pleasures.  And so many things I never would have thought about looking for in the first place.  I mean “A clown on fire” and “sex with animals” and “trebuchets” all in one place?  The mind reels.  “Boobs”, “Hot Dead Guys”, and “Sesame Street” all lumped together?  Really?  I’m hooked.

My new goal?  To build a wonderful Tag Cloud of my own.  I think that instead of just trying to think of things that I think I could blog about, I think I should think of something that I think would make a good tag, and then think about what I think about it.  (And yes, I AM a little proud of that sentence, so THERE!)

And don’t leave out the “Favorites” list.  When presented with a list that includes “Hey, nice rack“, should I really feel guilty for clicking?  I didn’t go searching for it, after all.
