Writer's Block: More than words

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Finally, a question I like!

I sometimes find it difficult to separate the music from the lyrics. Sometimes it's hard to say what it is that's made such an impression.

I can only think of one from Muse's Map of the Problematique. "I can't get it right since I met you". Which I can't relate to really. But I think that with the music gives an aching feeling, a hopeless feeling. I like hopeless lyrics. I don't like hopeful lyrics. I'm disappointed by hopeful lyrics.

Oh, I thought of another. It's not so much the lyrics as their relation to the rest of the song. It's Easyworld's Junkies and Whores. The song goes on to tell of a relationship doomed to fail over and and over again. And the singer is pouring his heart out to his partner (It's all You, You're, Your, We). The music's emotional. And at the end of the song, you feel the person must be drained, and his last words are, "You sleep so still, you'll sleep through everything". His partner was asleep the whole time. Had he the courage to say these things while she was awake they could be saved.

I also like Easyworld's Me. It tells of two friends who crossed the line between friends and partners. The singer is downstairs in the kitchen wondering if their friendship's ruined and what his friend, or girlfriend, is doing. He's supposed to be making a drink. The last line is "A melancholic sad reminder. The kettle boiled an hour ago". He's been too afraid and too busy thinking. It's hardly Ivor Novello stuff but it's the banality of it that gets me. And the way it just stops and he has to face the music after he's been hiding behind it.

I bet I'll think of at least ten more later. And I'll wonder how I could have forgotten.

Edit: Deacon Blue's Your Town. Again, probably the music that makes me love it but it's a dark song and I like to pretend it's a song about a failed relationship. I know it's not about that but la la la, I'm not listening.

Writer's Block: Mystery meat

Pickled octopus tentacle. Was while I was on watch in the SCC. I initially refused to try it on the grounds of liking octupi very much. But I was afraid I was looking a but girly so I reluctantly agreed. Was made all the more disgusting because the Chief said it was its toenail. Urgh.

Although I'm quite sure it's a piss-take, this definitely takes the prize for worst Writer's Block ever. Was this SERIOUSLY the most scintillating of the questions to choose from?

Writer's Block: Dream reader

[Error: unknown template qotd]

When I was younger I'd have very frequently recurring dreams about escalators. They were never just ordinary escalators though. They'd be running too fast or with enormous stairs or incredibly steep. Never did I dream about a normal or easy one. I read somewhere it's supposed to symbolise one's struggle to achieve a goal.

Writer's Block: Welcome to the mobile decade

[Error: unknown template qotd]

I'm certain it wasn't just Britain that didn't call the 80s that.

The last decade would surely have been the information decade. This decade? We're only three months in, give it chance.

Writer's Block: Marital license

[Error: unknown template qotd]

I think they must mean marriage certificate or just marriage. A licence to marry is not the same as a certificate of marriage. Another stupid question.

Writer's Block: Ohhh, baby

[Error: unknown template qotd]
This doesn't make any sense. I need my partner to help me conceive a child. So yeah, it would be more than a consideration. It would be a necessity. And I can't conceive a child without me either. 

I'd tell my best friend to wind her neck in and stop getting involved in reproductive decisions. Or to sort out her grammar.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Can't see it myself but several people have said, independently of each other, that I look like Jodie Foster. Really can't see it,.

Writer's Block: AKA

[Error: unknown template qotd]Snapdragon was the name of a rather fetching ddraig goch on a Welsh BBC children's website. I liked him and took his name. The 666 because Snapdragon was taken and I couldn't think of any other significant number apart from my year of birth. Wish I could get rid of it now though, looks stupid.

Lisa. I remember her being my role model when I was about 12. I had a Lisa pin badge on my school blazer and drew pictures of her. I think she's a great character, I'd love to know what career she has as an adult.
