Once again I had a couple of things underway for posting, and once again I am trying to write, but instead I went for another walk because it seemed like the thing to do. The rest can wait.
I was amused to find that this cool song, from a movie that is rapidly becoming one of the movies I most enjoy watching (in no small part because my firstborn loves it and is a giant Sonic fangirl), was actually done by X Ambassadors. A couple of years back another of their songs, Renegades, made my playlist because it’s cool.
So anyway, have a fun and groovy song, with solidly moving lyrics (if not precisely as uplifting as the tune) to brighten your whatever-time-of-day.
I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends.
Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages?
