Today is my fourteenth anniversary and we decided to take a random trip to the beach and indulge in some of the local shellfish. What could be better than spending your anniversary digging razor clams right? Yup ... I know, I'm a hopeless romantic huh?
Anyhow the clam dig was at Ft. Stevens Park on the Oregon Coast. True hardcore apocalypse fans will recognise this as the site where 'the man' and 'the boy' ended their journey in the movie version of The Road. I'll refresh your memory:
While there I took some pretty great photos as well.
If you look closely you'll see a group of young rapscallions busily digging in the larger portion of the wreck. It certainly looks a lot less ominous in reality. That last photo was an attempt to stand where 'The Man' stood as he first viewed the ocean. Also I did manage to get a clam that day. It was very small ... that's true. But it is the only one that was gotten today.That is also true.
Alright. Show of hands here. Who knew that Billy Idol's Dancing With Myself was apocalyptic? Don't be embarrassed. Even a PA superfan like me wasn't aware of it. I wasn't aware he dancing alone because everyone had snuffed out (or were zombies). Also the electric shock part was reminiscent of the video by Foster the People 'Helena Beat'.
Anyhow here it is.
When there's no-one else in sight
In the crowded lonely night
Well I wait so long
For my love vibration
And I'm dancing with myself
