We've been tagged with a viral musicbloggy internet meme. I tried to find out where it started, but after a few dozen links back, I gave up. Perhaps someone knows? I first saw it here.
I'm supposed to (#5) say that we were tagged by Scott Spiegelberg over at Musical Perceptions.
It goes like this:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.
"Falling Man", by Don DeLillo (which I got for xmas and haven't read yet, so this was that much weirder).
They walked toward the towers now, amid the sweep and crisscross of masses of people. All right. But what if the digits don't always total ten?
That was awesome.
Fine. Good. Let's play. I tag:
Joshua Kosman, Erik Loomis at alterdestiny, Tom Strini, anzu, and Your Mileage May Vary.
(By the by, the actual nearest book was Mozart Piano Sonatas, but I didn't feel like typing in a bunch of note names.)
These are strange times, people.
PS: We seem to be on the tail end of this, so apologies to anyone we've re-tagged.
