the ambulance is your ride home
Post quickness- I wanted to get this out earlier, but I ran out of time and ideas. Here we go
: I saw A History of Violence
, and decided to post a song about fighting. The movie reminded me of a Hitchcock or maybe an Edward Hopper painting- the way that violence and weird creepy stuff is always lurking in the shadows of everyday American life. Okay, inspiration for post -- check.
The promotional still at the left depicts a scene that isn't in the film, which may explain the odd view through the glass door, the bizarre yellow light from the left, and Ed Harris' out-of-character grin. That takes care of the picture. Almost done.
I wish I remember how I heard about this band/ got this song, but I don't. Blame the internet for our fading memories and shrinking attentions spans, but thank it for new music from tiny bands. Ninja High School's awesome to the extreme website
describes one of their albums as "more yelling about semiotics." That is a very good description of this song, and also a fair description of our college careers. Oh-kay that does it for the song description, fair but not great, just get to the link at the end. Shit- why did I use the second person back there? Who the hell is we, and why did we go to college? What if "we" majored in chemistry, huh?
