Countdown

224 days until the Man burns....

30 Seconds to Mars

New Music always has a tendency to move me.  Members of my household have been enjoying "A Beautiful Lie" from 30 Seconds to Mars released all the way back in 2005 for the past several weeks.  The lush tones, and solid rhythm section absolutely suck me in - and then, there is all of the depth, power, and beauty of the lyrics. Music is three parts magic - it speaks to you, both where you've been, and where you are... sometimes, it speaks of where you are going.  And in nearly all cases a piece of music that resonates with you personally can change your life.

It's difficult to claim a "favorite" song on this album.  I suppose "The Story" would be an apt choice due to the introspective nature of the "conversation" the lyrics are having with themselves and where I've "been" for the last twenty years.  The hauntingly simplistic guitar melody that opens "Was It A Dream" is ultra competitive however - it's that sound I hear in the quiet moments of the morning when everyone else in the house is sound asleep and I stir my cup of coffee.
xmas 2012 San Francisco Pier Your defenses were on high
Your walls built deep inside
Yeah I'm a selfish bastard
But at least I'm not alone
My intentions never change
What I wanted stays the same
And I know what I should do
it's time to set myself on fire
Was it a dream?
Was it a dream?
Is this the only evidence that proves it
A photograph of you and I
Your reflection I've erased
Like a thousand burned out yesterdays
Believe me when I say goodbye forever
Is for good
Was it a dream?
Was it a dream?
Is this the only evidence that proves it
A photograph of you and I
Was it a dream?
Was it a dream?
Is this the only evidence that proves it
A photograph of you and I
(A photograph of you and I)
Was it a dream?
Was it a dream?
Is this the only evidence that proves it
A photograph of you and I
A photograph of you and I
A photograph of you and I... in love...

So, did you happen to get directed here from Twitter?
http://t.co/gQL4AWRqI7 perhaps?

I've been receiving an interesting amount of referrals from this link over the past few days - I'm guessing whoever's posting this link doesn't know about Google Analytics, Webalizer, or my own analysis of access_log files.

Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. seems to be inordinately interested in this page for some reason.

Walking, talking correlation engine that I am, I'm relatively certain I already know the answers.
