Just found an MP3 of a song I've been after since 1997. A scene in the movie "Starship Troopers" (one of my favorite political movies), features a cover version of David Bowie's "I Have Not Been to Oxford Town", but that track is not on the soundtrack. Turns out that the singer, ZoŽ Poledouris, has it available for download from her MySpace page. Now, my life is complete.
Sad news today as we hear the Charleton Heston died at the age of 85. I didn't agree with his politics and find many of his movies silly beyond silly, but there's no denying that the man was magic. Ride into the sunset, Uncle Chuck. Adios!
Or whatever. 2008 shall probably not be the year the website is updated regularly, but I'm sure we'll all muddle through somehow.
So, there I was, in the Barnes & Noble, looking for a book, the title of which I did not know. After a while of walking around the aisles, fruitlessly, I remembered- I have the Internet with me. I have my iPhone. A quick check with Google led me to Amazon, where I discovered that the book I wanted was out of print. I checked with B&N.com now that I had a title, but they didn't have it listed.
I'd like to say that I ordered the book from amazon right there in the store, but I didn't. I waited until later. That would have been the perfect ending to the story though, wouldn't it?
