The Journey is such a deceptive phrase because it implies a beginning, middle and end when there really is none. One thing leads to another and then to another so there’s always an ongoing journey — an infinite plot-line, if you will, that never reaches any conclusion. If it did then entropy would set in, and that would be the end of, well, everything as we know it. On the other hand, that might not be such a bad thing for cleaning slates and starting over from scratch.
Roads and travelers come in all shapes and sizes–literally and figuratively.
Keiko Matsui ~ The Road album title track.
Into the Wild ~ LP – Live, of course. Whistle with her, if you can. I dare you. 🙂 So says moi, who can NOT whistle at all.
Rust and Bone soundtrack I Follow Rivers ~ Lykke Li ~ Who’s up for a hard-core, edgy and no punches pulled journey into love?
Blank Maps ~ Cold Specks. If someone has found the kiosk with the life maps, please announce it on the intercom for everyone’s benefit. Thank you.
Into the Wild –Eddie Vedder ~ There are a number of videos with this music connected to the film by the same name. I decided to stick with the focus on Vedder’s voice and lyrics.
Why Across the Universe?
Because of all the concrete and abstract journeys it contains: a young man’s journey from home to find his biological father; journeys of the heart and mind; journeys into and out of the war machine; journeys of friendship; creative journeys and spiritual journeys. The film is pretty much jam packed with a lot more than great Beatles’ music, though that alone is reason enough to give it some of your precious time–if you’re a Beatles fan, of course.
Across the Universe ~ I Want You
A great survival story is a great survival story—that’s my response to those folks who have issues with the source material for this film. Frankly, I just don’t give a damn. Considering the way serious political history is constantly abused, misused, spun, and misrepresented by some film industries, I can’t get worked up about whether or not everything in this film is factual or not.
The Way Back ~ Tibet by Burkhard Dallwitz
I’ve served The Thin Red Line on other occasions–sigh. Listen closely and let Private Witt speak for himself.
The Thin Red Line ~ The Swing Scene
Where have Bear and the others gone? Let’s find out.
So far we’re all on different tracks. Oh yeah. No visas required. Yet.

~~~ Like Johnny said, there are 7 billion life maps out there and none of them are the same. In other words, all our journeys are unique with this musical theme.
ps. This is subject to massive revision without notice. 🙂 Don’t forget your meal tickets.
Feel free to offer some detours of your own.
