No, not her body’s burial. Although Parlay has had two funeral scenes so you think I’d have music for those, but I don’t. What I’m talking about is her MENTAL burial in chapter 23. The part where she snaps. The moment when she convinces herself that everything she’s done in her life was a waste. Those long years of being kind; being patient while the world rejected her. All that time was for nothing.
By the way, my friend Matt is having his 36th birthday this week! Happy birthday, man! I hope you enjoy this music that I found to embody the rage and pain of a life full of endless frustration!
The song is called “Frankenstein’s Monster.” I first heard this while watching X-Men First Class over at Matt’s house. It plays during a scene with the young Magneto. And I’m sure that he’s thinking the same thing that so many ostracized people do: “If the world wants a monster, then that’s what they’re going to get.”
You know, I’ve never read Frankenstein. Mary Shelley wrote one of the first science fiction novels and I’ve never even bothered to experience it. So many characters and stories I’ve seen have been inspired by that book, too. Like Dr. Gero and Cell from Dragon Ball Z. And then there’s Babidi and Majin Buu from, uh, also Dragon Ball Z.
Huh. Well, I’m off to play Diablo 3! Have a happy St. Patrick’s Day! 😉
