(6:58 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
Finishing My PhDI've decided that instead of using the outdated method of living through each and every moment between now and finishing my PhD, I'm going to have a montage. The main thing will be to have various scenes with more or less obvious subject matter: sitting in class, reading a book (perhaps scratching my chin), writing. But for comic relief, I'll also have some scenes where, say, at first the printer won't print, but then it starts printing overwhelmingly fast, driving me out of the room. (I need to work on that aspect.) Of course, after graduation, there will be a still shot of me enthusiastically throwing my cap in the air.
Anyway, the choice of a song for this montage is important. I was thinking of Peter Gabriel's "Salisbury Hill," but now that seems more appropriate for the closing credits -- for the montage, I need something more upbeat. Any suggestions?
