Re: The playlist for the apocalypse

I love short stories and this is a great one with some music behind the narrative. A few lines are enough to build an engaging story. Desperate times call for desperate measures, why not ask the Old Gods if the newer ones are not answering?

I've seen the birds fall from the sky
I’ve seen the harvest wither and die
And now I know our prayers have all been in vain
We must invoke the Old Gods to bring back the rain

Wake her at dawn, bring her down to the bower
Robe her in white, crown her with funeral flowers
Join the parade, oh follow her through fields of dust
Because tonight we must bless the same soil with her blood

That sounds interesting, going to have to take a closer look at green lung.
Interesting premise too, where would a religious person turn when his god isn´t listening?

Re: The playlist for the apocalypse

Just listened to "Apartment Story" by The National:

We'll stay inside till somebody finds us
Do whatever the TV tells us
Stay inside our rosy-minded fuzz for days
We'll stay inside till somebody finds us
Do whatever the TV tells us
Stay inside our rosy-minded fuzz

Re: The playlist for the apocalypse

So worry not, all things are well..

Except for squirrels. I hope people will keep corona (not the beer) for themselves and not pass the gift on squirrels!

Today I want to make the apocalypse weirder:

It says "Oops, something went wrong". What did you do???

Ah, I see it. I will edit the link.

Great meldown, yeah. Giorno sounded like he needed it.

Re: The playlist for the apocalypse

Well MC, I didn't realize you have the ability to edit my posts, that's actually quite something and thanks again. Maybe when I'm away you can post something witty or erudite on my behalf?
Although perhaps you need to be careful and only use your superpowers in moderation...

Well I'm sure he appreciates it's"Good" that you miss him but figure a deity should be in the mix?

I remember my dad playing yodeling music in the car with the windows down driving through the high street on a busy Saturday afternoon - me and my brother cringing in the back seat. Now I'd listen to a whole yodeling album to have another 5 mins with him

Cool. I bet your life gets better every time you think about him. Dad played baroque flutes.

Deity? Well..
