Please go unplug the television for me...OR: Why The Magnificent Seven's Theme is a Dangerous Thing
So, today, I suddenly remembered that I need to have Their Eyes Were Watching God read BY TOMORROW (and I just KNOW my professor is going to give a scary quiz on it). I began to furiously read and finished about half of it.
Randomly, my mind stopped and my ears began to concentrate. I couldn't be hearing that. I must be imagining it. NO, NO. IT IS IT.
It IS the glorious theme of The Magnificent Seven that I hear... IT IS CALLING TO ME.
Without realizing it, I set down the book and allowed myself to be led into the other room. Before I could stop myself I was sitting on the couch and halfway through the film. Ah well, it's only two hours or so.
Now, I must return to reading. [ugh.] I must return to normal life -- without a glorious theme. Oh, cruel world...
