Apologies, but I need to get something silly out of my system. It’s not that silly, but just on loop in my head.
OK, now that that’s out of my system (3 months isn’t long at all), it’s on the to the rest of the blank page. It’s putting up quite a fight today. I won’t let it win. There will be words that form thoughts. Soon.
Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. -Albert Einstein
This writing thing is tough on days like today. That’s because I can think of not a single original thought to put forth here and it’s annoying. I’m also fighting off a buzz of distractions that are in my head. Those thoughts, that have no substance, are the hardest to get away from because they keep playing, like an old radio station, in a tight loop.
Like right now, suddenly, I’m thinking of a different song than the one above and it’s stuck playing its hook over and over again. Maybe I can purge it if I listen.
Well, that was fun, but I don’t think it worked so well. The page is looking less blank, so I’ll consider this battle a draw and return for more combat tomorrow.

Putting these words down so they don’t drift away.
I like the smell of rain. The sound of steady rain at night. Stepping outside just after it’s stopped.
I like the way…
I also like the way you move…
and, that’s without ever knowing the way…
My choice for this week, and my first of 2016, is Police Bust, by Joseph Trapanese, off the Straight Outta Compton movie soundtrack.
I admit it, I’m a bit late to the Straight Outta Compton soundtrack, but I’m glad, for once, that a Spotify alert caught my attention.
This is not my first experience of the work of Joseph Trapanese, as put quite a few spins on his Tron Uprising soundtrack, even weeks after Disney canceled the excellent show (boo, Disney!) This soundtrack continues his signature style of adventurous, driving music. I totally imagine running and chasing going on, listening to this.
The funny thing is that I haven’t seen the movie yet. I will, and now I know it will definitely sound good.
Note: This is a late post. I’ll have another choice tomorrow.
Most of the albums available were included in past Collector’s Editions of Blizzard games, such as the original soundtracks of World of Warcraft and The Burning Crusade, and even the Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos soundtrack.
Here’s a link to the iTunes Store page. This is pretty neat, I think. I was not looking forward to extracting the music from the game files and filing in the information manually for each track. Also, this little morsel is there:
Looks like I’m late to the party. The other tracks seem to have been there for a while. They’re all iTunes Plus tracks.
