If Irony Were A Sharp Knife...

...I'd be bleeding.

Perusing the Gibson blog today. What is it that makes us like people just because they like the same music we do? (I don't know, but marketers do, and it works.)

Lifted from Mr. G's blog:

"MEANWHILE, BACK AT THE SHERATON, DR. JEEP PLAYS ON AND ON AND ON...

Bruce Sterling introduced me to Sisters of Mercy on our DIFFERENCE ENGINE tour, and "Vision Thing" became our official tour anthem; so, no, I wasn't listening to them when I wrote NEUROMANCER. I was listening to what Andrew Eldritch listened to in order to write those songs, I intuit.

He's one fine lyricist, is Andrew Eldritch.

As is Nick Cave. I'd like to write a novel as good as THE BOATMAN'S CALL."


Anyhow, so Gibson listens to the Sisters. I love it.
