I know I have been super extra MIA lately, but I’ve been focusing on Major Life Things. Everything is great, just not very condusive (conducive? yes, the red squiggly tells me it’s ‘conducive’) to blogging.
What it is conducive to, however, is getting obsessed with a single song, which often happens in times when things are pushing down on me, pushing down on you. And yes, I’m talking about the Queen song Under Pressure, a version of which you can watch below. (It’s not actually that interesting to watch, but the other versions showed buildings collapsing, and I found that deeply disturbing.)
The play that I was just working on–the one that a high-school senior directed, and I mentored–went up this weekend, and one of the many amazing sound cues designed by said senior was Under Pressure. It just stuck in my brain and all I seem to be able to do is watch and listen to Youtube versions of this song, from “Sing-Off” (which I foresee myself getting addicted to at some point in life) to the Freddie Mercury tribute by David Bowie and Annie Lennox. I’m not going to post that last one because frankly, it’s a little weird. You’re welcome to go looking for it, and I certainly endorse a David Bowie viewing, because I happen to find him sexy, but while I find Annie L. quite attractive as well, she’s just a bit odd here. Oh, heck, now maybe I’ve made you curious, so I’ll include her as well, and whether you watch or ffwd to the end, tell me if you don’t think, “By gum, that is a little weird.”
More next week, I hope!
This is our last dance
This is ourselves…under pressure.
