I'm counting down to 30, I've accomplished absolutely nothing in my life, and there are times where Jonathan Larson's 30/90 (https://youtu.be/jcXVY9h17cs) starts playing in my head.


They're singing, "Happy Birthday"
You just wish you could run away
Who cares about a birthday?
But 30/90, hey

Can't you be optimistic?
You're no longer the ingenue
Turn thirty, 1990
Boom! You're passe
What can you do?

30? Hah - amateur! Try doing nothing by 40! Adam Buxton's Counting Song (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXvsl8xgRxc) about sums up my useless life...

As for the soundtrack I carry in my head, I imprinted in the 80's on Beyond the Forbidden Forest (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfbEWXXo8T4) (C64 game) and the theme to Master of Magic (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hm5Hjsm5NZ4) (which I never got far in, for lack of healing ability, but that song still pops into my head...)

Also the Arcanum (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LHLAcd14b4) soundtrack.

makes sense to me ^^ I kinda did that when I was growing up in the diff places I lived in...

I got a fever
that I don’t wanna shake
I’m seeing clearer
now my heart will never break
it’s like a speaker
making noises that are keeping me awake

that feels so much like me when I go into art or writing mode xD

"Army of Me" by Bjork, I think. Which might be useful because I have to drive the boyfriend to and from a lumbar puncture on Monday, and even though I know medical technology is advanced now, I am freaking out. It doesn't show, but I am freaking pretty hard.

Huh, I was just thinking about this yesterday.

I have to go with I Wish by Infected Mushroom. It perfectly encapsulates how I feel about life.

I want to move, to loose, to take the grooves, and to give it all back
I want to take the time rewind, and to kick it right from the start
to be unknown and all alone, lose the kind that are behind
to start a new play by myself and to give the best I have


I'm playing the game
the one that will take me to my end
I'm waiting for the rain
to wash who I am

As much as I wish I could rock the dangerous swagger of "Emma" by Alkaline Trio (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxpYcuuKvm0), in reality I'm entirely a "Papercut Skin" by The Matches (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipGdk34AG8Q)lady.

Day out, day in
It's the alarm versus me
and the snooze button wins.

I love that writer John Scalzi has a tradition (http://whatever.scalzi.com/2014/08/19/lock-in-by-william-beckett-the-theme-song-to-the-novel/) of hiring writers like William Beckett to do songs for his books (via Downwrite (https://downwrite.com/artist/william-beckett)). Maybe one day, when I'm rich and famous, I'll do the same. :)

It's funny, because I was thinking about this earlier today when I was listening to music and a song came on and I thought "Yeah, that's it. That's me. I hereby dub this MY song!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHBR5G8ttoc&feature=youtu.be

Well, someone once asked me what song I would want to be playing when I walked into a room (or maybe it was a party), an--I'll always remember this--I said "Busted" by Matchbox Twenty. But only because there's something cinematic about it that would allow for a sort of slo-mo pan from the shoes up to the face, I think? (I have a screenwriting degree, so I tend to think cinematically.) I don't know that I'd call that my theme song, though.

And yes, I know liking Matchbox Twenty is supremely uncool. ::shrug::

I might think of more, but right now, the one that screams me is "Bitch" by Meredith Brooks. Yeah they overplayed the Hell out of it during the 90s, but looking back, it is a remarkably feminist song, basically saying, "Hey it's not an either/or thing." You can be all cute and girly and rock a princess dress, yet you can still be a kingdom-saving badass, which is a message everyone could benefit from, especially girls.

It's a tie between Mumford & Sons - Broken Crown and Imagine Dragons - Demons. Or the Benny Hill Theme. I can see how the last calls the first two into question. No, I don't get it either. But there it is.
