The Universe. Some scratches of Beryllium. Diving. The Navel of the Galaxies. Maybe god. Maybe the void. Maybe you. Maybe it's just cryptical

To the Heart of the Galaxy

Constellations: Summer Constellations (Libra, Scorpius, Sagittarius)
Mood: Evasive
Song: Sleep * Conjure One

It's summer.
It's hot.

A delight offers itself to your naked eyes in the summer. The flamboyant constellations of Sagittarius (the Archer) and Scorpius (the Scorpion) shine out in July for the inhabitants of the mid-Northern hemisphere.

The Archer is believed, in Greek Mythology, to be pointing its arrow to the heart of the Scorpion, on its main first-magnitude star, Antares.

Apart from the fact that both are very perceptible, you can clearly see the Milky Way, the galaxy in which the Solar System is located, in that direction. In fact, the dwindling heart of the Milky Way lies in the Sagittarius Constellation.

To guide you in your enchanting journey, here is a small setlist that will kick with beginning of the expedition (Jabo's Night Out), then the dark skies in which stars start to pinpoint (Waiting for the Night), to the reaching of the outer ends of the Milky Way (the music of Subterranean Homesick Alien), and onto its most condensed areas in the Sagittarius constellation (A Forest), leading to the closing stages of the outing which marks the return (through the song Sleep).

Enjoy the ride!

01. Jabo's Night Out (Plej) - from the album Electronic Music from the Swedish Leftcoast [2003]

"Get your freak on
Get-get your freak on"

02. Waiting for the Night (Depeche Mode) - from the album Violator [1989]

"There is a star in the sky
Guiding my way with its light
And in the glow of the moon
Know my deliverance will come soon"

03. Subterranean Homesick Alien (Radiohead) - from the album OK Computer [1996]

"I'd tell all my friends but they'd never believe me,
They'd think that I'd finally lost it completely.
I'd show them the stars and the meaning of life.
They'd shut me away"

04. A Forest (The Cure) - from the album Seventeen Seconds [1980]

"come closer and see
see into the dark
just follow your eyes
just follow your eyes"

05. Sleep (Conjure One) - from the album Conjure One [2002]

"Kindred spirit of candle light
I won't sleep unless you
Sleep with me tonight
Deep with me tonight..."

Here's where the Solar System is supposed to reside in the Milky Way.

Hey there! Have you read this Tori interview on Undented?

I am asking you this because of this quote:

"Well, I’m glad you reminded me of “Mountain”. Because I need to get the band—we need to learn “Mountain”. We just do. [At this point I egg Tori on to whip the immensely talented “boys”—Jon Evans, Matt Chamberlain and Dan Phelps, into shape] Yeah—no cracking that whip. They needed a break from me. I love them so much, though, they’re my buddies. I just adore playing with them. Playing with them, it pushes me as a player so I find it really exciting. We all decided before we left Tel Aviv that we knew that we had to make our lists of things that we had to put in our repertoire. So yes, “Mountain”, “Sugar”, all those songs will be coming."

Yes!!! I saw it. Now I'm not gonna put my hopes very high, but let's hope she brings either Mountain or Datura as she claims. I don't care about Sugar, it's on every posssible compilation. Bring the other two! :D
