The Dark Divine soundtrack: song #15


Today's song is another beautiful one by Death Cab for Cutie. What Sarah Said is an excellent example of amazing writing. Every word of this song just drips with story-telling talent. I love listening to this song when I need some inspiration with my prose. And as literary agent Nathan Bransford once said on his blog, "The very first step of being a good writer is recognizing good writing."

If you haven't figured out by now, I just can't get enough of Ben Gibbard (he's also the singer/songwriter for The Postal Service). In fact, I have a little equation for you all to consider:

My Book
Joss Whedon
Ben Gibbard
Taylor Kitsch

+++=One Freaking Awesome Movie!!!
(Disclaimer- this is NOT the real cover)
Script Writer/Director
Musical Composer
in the leading role of Daniel Kalbi

Great idea, don't you think? Now does anyone have the connections to make this happen? Because, you know, the book is getting PUBLISHED . . .and I still own the film rights . . .so making a movie of it isn't all that far-fetched of an idea. And here I've already done most of the work and laid out a formula for a surefire success. Let's get on it, people!! ;-)

Anyway, go ahead and listen to the song and try not to be too disappointed that you aren't watching The Dark Divine: The Movie while you do so . . .sigh.

Disclaimer: As with yesterday's post, even though this song talks about death, that doesn't necessarily mean that someone in my book dies--it's more the sentiment of the song that I wanted to capture in my soundtrack. (However, me giving you this disclaimer doesn't necessarily mean that someone doesn't die, either. You'll just have to read the book--or see the movie to find out. ;))

Another Note: I have no idea why there is a big huge gap in the middle of this post. Aparently we are having html problems that I can't solve. So, sorry that it looks all weird.

Joss Whedon is fantastic! I've never gotten into Buffy (which is, I imagine, why you picked him out for your movie), but I LOVE Firefly.

If it's Joss Whedon, it will be perfect for your stoy :)

Yes. All things Joss are fantastic. Dr. Horrible, Buffy, Firefly, Angel, etc. etc. If only we could convince him to pick up this book as his next project.

Who knows, maybe he'll google himself oneday, find himself at this blog post, and think "hmm... sounds intriguing..." and things will take off from there--Guaranteed hit!

I love all things Joss! It's too bad Firefly didn't make it--that was such a fun show. Have you seen Dr. Horrible yet?
