Dad is fine, you'll all be glad to know. He's sore and tired but for some reason, he came into work today. Well, that's Dad for you.
Right, onto the post proper. I was going to tack this on to the end of yesterday's post, but decided that the post was too long as it was. All of you must be now aware that I love music. All kinds of music. It doesn't have to be any particular genre, but it does have to move me. I stumbled across this next group quite by accident. They are:
Two Steps From Hell.
And here is one of their remarkable pieces:
Brilliant, is it not? This is the kind of music that takes me places, let's me see things I wouldn't normally see.
Unfortunately, they don't sell their music to the general public, only movie people. I'm extremely depressed about it! I am particularly attached to everything I've heard from their Shadows and Nightmares collection, even the ones that are only about 30 seconds long (30 seconds of pure genius, I tell you!), and would dearly LOVE to have that playing on my iPod as I walk to and from work. But, alas, I cannot.
If anyone from Two Steps From Hell happens to chance across this post, please, please, please sell your music to us plebs. I am on my knees!
As to my submission statuses (stati?), today is the 12th (obviously) and the last day of the waiting period that one of the agents noted on their site. It also said that if I haven't heard from them by today, they weren't interested. Thus, if I hear nothing from them today, I know they weren't interested and I can cross them off my list and move on.
In other news, there were two more Ziggs.com profile hits. Unfortunately, both were looking for that other one. How do I know? Well, for starters, the one from Beverly, OH used my first name. Since I don't know anyone in Beverly, OH, and unless they were super-sleuths (and why would they be?), they shouldn't know my first name. The second one, from Arlington, VA actually used the words 'sonia carriere french porn star' in their search. Learn to spell her last name if you please. Hint: there is no 'i' in it. I am vaguely amused that I am extremely familiar with a porn-star's last name.
Righto, I have a short story that needs rewriting, so I'm off to do that. Have a lovely Wednesday!
