Remembrance

Uploaded by: Clabo

pond, NY

Caption: ...of the past.

Where have all the feelings gone?
Why has all the laughter ceased?
Why am I loved only when I’m gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child.

How can I ever feel again?
Given the chance would I return?
Why am I loved only when I’m gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child.
Think of me long enough to make a memory.
Come bless the child one more time.

— Nightwish,  “Bless The Child”

Hey, thanks!

Yep, most of us are still here, but there are lots of places that are like war-zones, if not completely levelled, then no power or heat or anything else.

Y'know, I don't know *why* I love that flick so much, because every time I watch it, I *know* it's not exactly a cinematic masterpiece, but it just resonated on *so* many levels.

What struck me well after I saw the movie was the last interview that Brandon Lee gave before his death on the set, part of which I included in Illusions. That quote just blew me away, no pun intended.

Lee was flat-out *awesome* in "The Crow"... What a wicked sense of humor! Actually, *all* the characters, and all the great one-liners you could pull from the movie. :D


And thanks!

Thanks!

And speaking of which, I recall a quote from "The Crow", where Top Dollar quips, "Childhood's over the moment you know you're gonna die.".

For a bad guy, he was awfully astute. :)

My own personal take on the song's meaning, and your mileage may vary, is that it's about childhood, and how the "seriousness" of adulthood is essentially the death of the carefree happiness of childhood.

With fall and its "impending death" of trees and fallen leaves and whatnot, leading into winter, and with the havoc that Sandy brought, this just kind of falls into place.


Well, that, and Julius's intro on the drums is pretty awesome. :D
