Listening Post

There are two types of people in this world: those who completely connect with Richard Sarafian's 1971 man-and-muscle-car-vs.-the-world cult classic Vanishing Point, and those not worth knowing.

The important thing to remember: Kowalski was dead long before he and the Challenger hit the bulldozers. But really, aren't we all?

Here's Audioslave's Show Me How To Live.

Well, having not seen the movie, I suppose I am on the fence as far as the knowing.

But it is an awesome song. Though I am surprised that, with all the cyborg and humanized robot stuff out there (BSG, Sarah Connor Chronicles, etc.) nobody thought to use it. It sounds so....perfect to be belted out by some pissed off artificial being demanding to be acknowledged.

Maybe I am overthinking it.
