It seems that all the cool kids of Bay Area geo-blogging were at Kevin Starr’s lecture (on the lessons learned from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake) last night. I was not; I was doing homework. I’m not cool.
But in the spirit of commemorating destruction, let’s see if, in addition to being uncool, I’m also doomed: O great and glorious iTunes, will there be a major (M>6) earthquake on the Hayward fault before I finish grad school?
- The Covering: Future Legend – David Bowie (from Diamond Dogs)
- The Crossing: 3 AM Call – Noe Venable(from No Curses Here)
- The Crown: Maudabawn Chapel – Eileen Ivers
- The Root: Vivaldi’s Trumpet Concerto in C Major, PV 44 – Largo (performed by Edward Carroll, on Masterpieces for Trumpet)
- The Past: The Happy Salmon – Tarras (from Rising)
- The Future: I Still Remember- Nightnoise (from Something of Time)
- The Questioner: You Talkin’ To Me?- Noe Venable (from No Curses Here)
What’s the matter, baby?
Show a little leg… show a little leg…
- The House: Sing Me A Song (That’ll Just Keep Me Lonesome) – Perfect Strangers (from Perfect Strangers)
- The Inside: An Cailín Gaelach – Altan (from Island Angel)
I asked her softly and respectfully
‘Will you take a kiss from me, my own true love?’
- The Outcome: Silk And Sweat(from Wakka Chikka Wakka Chikka)
The Covering is clear enough: a devastating Bay Area quake is a vital mythic element in modern culture. How aspiring geophysicists fit into the Jungian framework, I don’t know – the oracle’s choice for the Questioner is just cheeky.
Actually, given the Inside, and especially the Outcome, I think iTunes is trying to hit on me. Naughty Oracle! No cookie.
