Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.

I'm bad and that's good.
I'll never be good and that's not bad.
There's no one I'd rather be than me.

...unless I could be Batman, of course. Everybody wants to be Batman.

This is a song that's gone through my head many times when thinking about City of Heroes...


I am a Rock - Simon & Garfunkel:

A winter's day
In a deep and dark December;
I am alone,
Gazing from my window to the streets below

On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
I am a rock,
I am an island.



I've built walls,
A fortress deep and mighty,
That none may penetrate.

I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain.
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

Don't talk of love,
But I've heard the words before;
It's sleeping in my memory.

I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died.
If I never loved I never would have cried.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me;

I am shielded in my armor,
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.
I touch no one and no one touches me.


I am a rock,
I am an island.

And a rock feels no pain;

And an island never cries.

"Frank! It's the love boat to Cuba! Shuffle board and pineapples filled with rum. Know what they do? They put little paper umbrellas sticking out the top so that when it rains, it don't thin out the liquor."

When I think about City of Heroes, especially when I think about the rally and the successor projects, this is the song I keep thinking about. (And not just for the name, although it's pretty fitting.)

Freedom by Tegan and Sara

Standin' on the edge of a crisis
We decide to raise our own voices
Consider that the sound is our own
And the fact our feet grow up from the ground
This is where I wanna be
This is who I wanna be
So they get my voice
But they can they can never get my soul, yes

Freedom, from the mighty sky to the ground
You've got the freedom to walk out if they drag you down

It's a little belated, but today I'm listening to a couple songs to commemorate the anniversary of Brass Monday.

The first is Brass in Pocket by the Pretenders, and the second is I Don't Like Mondays by The Boomtown Rats. (Those choices seem almost eerily appropriate, seeing how Nemesis is nothing if not a pretender, and... well, Boomtown. Nuff said.)

Although the events of that day were unfortunate, they did eventually lead to the passage of the Citizen Crime Fighting Act, which for the most part was warmly welcomed, as the citizens were ready to start fighting for themselves.

So this next song goes out to those original heroes. Without them none of ours might ever have gotten the chance to pick up the fight: It's My Turn To Fly by The Urge.

I think sometime this weekend me and my Freedom Phalanx buddies are going to pop into Steel Canyon, where the bulk of the battle took place, and do a little dancing in the street.

Just 'cause we can. 8)

I'm actually listening to My Baby's Got the Strangest Ways by Southern Culture on the Skids.

But since I can't find a video for the album version, only live shows, I'll link to this one from the same soundtrack instead:

Kula Shaker - Hush

I love movie soundtracks. So many gems :)
