You can know anything. It's all there. You just have to find it.

Love Lost

Here is a lovely music video from one of my new favorite bands, The Temper Trap.  They are only a new band in that I have recently heard their music.  They've actually been working at it a few years.

And I love the entire album.

And I love even more that they are from Melbourne, Australia.

Because it's convenient.

Because my book is partially set in Australia.  So it will be convenient for when they make the movie.  And then Temper Trap can play on the soundtrack.

See, I'm thinking ahead.

Seriously, the video is perfect.  If you've ever ran cross-country you'll get it.  I sometimes run that way.  A little bit Monty Python with some high kicks, jazz hands, and tormented facial expressions of desire and angst.

And everyone on the running trail avoids me.

The end is sublime.

I'm in Melbourne :-) Whereabouts in Oz is your book partially set?

That's the part I'm working on. It's somewhere north of Broken Hill. I'm completely ignorant of the area so I will have to do a share of research as my main character has to traverse south after an escape. Most of my information has come from Bill Bryson's In a Sunburned Country. Great Book.
