New contest: Stranger Than Fiction Soundtrack

So you may recall that I enthusiastically adored the movie Stranger Than Fiction (previous post here). I had an in-depth conversation with my hairstylist gal yesterday about it whilst she snipped; she also loved a movie called “The Prestige”? Hadn’t heard of it, but now I’ve Netflixed it. The effeminate gent (read: corset, ribbon around his neck, and more makeup than me on prom day) who owns the little salon was also going on and on about how fat Kate Winslet was (obviously he doesn’t drive a Jaguar) but how he’d “do” Salma Hayek. It was an interesting conversation.

Anyways. All that to say that I now have a copy of the Stranger Than Fiction soundtrack (which was a very very good compilation) to give away to one of you lucky cats. PLUS you get an engraved travel mug, to use on your mind-numbing commute to your staid job.

Here’s how I want to run it. In keeping with the plotline of the movie, in the comments I want you to tell me: If you were writing a book, what would the title be? That’s it, just the title. Think about it and let’s see what you got.

    Jason — December 2, 2006 @ 4:15 pm

  • I would call it:
    “Cursed With Genius: Why You’ve Never Heard Of Me and What You Can Learn from That”

    But if i were in a bookstore and saw all of these books on a shelf, I would read this one: “How I Almost Made The Perfect Decision Every Time, But Second Guessed My Way To Playing Poker With Satan “.

    i love the blog, Heather. Keep it up.

  • Damn, this is a lot of entries.

    But the title of my book would be “Welcome To The Family Of Rock”

    A lyrical quote from my favorite band and of course the subject of the book I want to write.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
