I Love Escapism

Scroll down on the link in the paragraph below unless you want to read about the montage from the Sylvester Stallone arm-wrestling movie (you don't):

The song is so effusively congratulatory that it makes you want to believe anything. They should play this before amateur magic shows, or at church before the priest turns the crackers into Jesus’ body.

Totally true, and that's why I've played the damn thing at least twice weekly since downloading it a few months ago. But the part about me hearing it in my head when I'm lifting weights, that part is totally untrue and definitely a lie.

It's funny, I'm getting up and reading your posts about, oh, two hours after you've posted and, presumably, gone to bed. Two ships passing in the night; except your ship is partying wildly to inspiring montages, and my ship is sound asleep under fifteen blankets with a lone wine glass left out on the deck....

A workout montage alternative: Red Rider's "Lunatic Fringe" from Vision Quest. 57% more badass, as evidenced by Louden's nosebleeds.
