In 2005 I discovered two musicians, one, Matt Nathanson, was a singer song-writer who was kind of a lower-key Jason Mraz (and less up his own ass John Mayer), and the other was a little band you may have heard of called Dire Straits.
That Christmas I received a gift card to my local FYE, and promptly bought Nathanson’s live album, and Dire Straits’ greatest hits. I listen to The Live Album first and dig this song called “Romeo and Juliet”, only to discover it was a cover song by none-other than Dire Straits after listening to their greatest hits album the follow day on the ride to school.
What are the weirdest, in-what-strange-way-is-our-world-connected-I’m-freaking-out-man coincidences you’ve ever experienced?
I’m sure there are countless others I can reference, but I’d like to keep this pithy for once, and I got use the much-request incest topic in a unique and non-actionable way. Everybody wins!
PS – I’m *back*. I counted up the number of QOTD’s since I left and added them to the total we had, so we’re at a nice, totally not round, 97.
I now only have one full time job and assorted hobbies, so it looks like you’re gonna be Otters just a while longer. Thank me later.
