reality check: normal.

I'm currently reading H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds, and it's quite unsettling. Not because of the storyline, or the ideas behind the storyline.

No, it's unsettling because, whenever I come across a line lifted wholesale from the book into Jeff Wayne's musical version, I can hear the narrator's voice echoing in my memory as if he's standing behind me, narrating the book. Given my reading time is normally late at night, curled up in bed, it's proving a touch jarring.

I also wake up in the morning humming "Forever Autumn" or "Thunder Child".

Fortunately, this morning I stumbled across this stunningly reassuring website. I cannot tell you how much this amuses me.
