Zemanta Images Provide Instant Research Results

‘Never good at talking, so many things I couldn’t say
But those thoughts never went away’

Suicidal Tendencies, lyrics in One Too Many Times, off How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can’t Even Smile Today, 1988.

‘So many things we want to say
but we only want to blog once a day.’

Greenygrey, 2012.

 Hi, it’s Simon Wolfell, musical entrepreneur at the Greenygrey. I heard the howl for my services this week, and I think I’ve got the G-Factor, so here I am. I’ll try not to create too much chaos here.

Yes, we were alerted to Suicidal Tendencies by Marc Latham, when he credited them as an influence in his first poetry collection. As well as trying to escape to the California Dream with bands like Motley Crue and Aerosmith, Marc also used to like the socially conscious lyrics of bands like the Suis, Megadeth and Rose Tattoo. Guns N’ Roses kind of combined the two, like green and grey are combined in Greenygrey.

Zemanta Images Provide Instant Research Ideas

Felix Baumgartner‘s amazing space jump took over yesterday’s blog, postponing my eagerly awaited debut, because I was going to give credit to Zemanta for providing an instant research idea and connection between the Epic of Gilgamesh and the Wizard of Oz.

Because don’t you think that Gilgamesh carrying Enkidu looks just like Dorothy carrying Toto 4000 years later. We don’t know if Wizard of Oz writer, L. Frank Baum, was aware of the Epic of Gilgamesh, or just thought a dog-sidekick was a good idea for the story, and it’s a coincidence.

Do people like Paris Hilton carrying their toy dogs around unconsciously carry around a little bit of our lost wilderness without knowing it?

We don’t know, like we didn’t know about the possible relevance and connection between Gilgamesh and Enkidu and modern day real and fictional travellers until reading Inside the Neolithic Mind.

So thanks to Zemanta for that image, and provoking another stream of culture and nature travelling twosome thought…
