The last couple of days I've been walking through town a lot with the
masses of corporate Adelaide. Generally, the people with headphones make
more eye contact than the drones. There's like a secret understanding
between headphone people.. like we don't really belong to the corporate
slavery and actually still have personalities behind our corporate wear.
There's also a sort of "You wouldn't believe what I'm listening to,
So, I've been walking around in corporate wear trying not to dance and
sing and generally embarrass myself. Which I'm not good at. It's much
easier to cut loose and do the embarrassing things. So I dance and sing
and freak people out. So sue me. :P
Um, what was my point? Oh that's it. Yesterday it really amused me to
watch the masses walking in time with my soundtrack of Fat Boy Slim.
"Right here, right now" is a FANTASTIC corporate masses soundtrack. It
was surreal. But then there was "Praise you". Now, there are only a few
special people in the world who understand why I want to dance like an
idiot whenever I hear that song (Watch the film clip and become one of
my special friends!). Dancing to "Praise you" when no-one else can hear
the music is likely to get me institutionalised. Really. :) It was *so*
hard to stop myself. Hehe.
Argh. Now to the real point of the post. Today I found the BEST
corporate masses migration music. Kraftwerk. "We are the robots" and
"Machine". I just wish I'd been listening to the German version.
On a random note.. Bruce pointed out today that my uniform looks like
what people in the future wore in the 70s. Then he realized the truth of
it was that it looks like a Star Trek uniform.. I even have the symbol
in the right place. I worry that now I'm a blue Trekky I will obviously
die in the course of the episode. :\
