Geek Mythology

CD in Play: Wilco, Sky Blue Sky

I have had a reoccuring dream ever since the age of 11, back in 1981, about my classmates and I becoming the embodiment of the Greek Gods. I was living in Mission, BC at the time and had always been fascinated by Greek mythology. I still recall the dream in both conscious and unconscious states to this day. Some of the classmates remain in tact, others become hazy. In the dream I always assume the role of Prometheus, always at odds with my classmates who revel in their apparent godhood. I suppose I should have paid closer attention to the dream as a kid. C'est la vie...

Don't know if the title was intentional or not, but I love it. It sounds like a Dougy Copeland book in the making....

It was deliberate.

You need to meet Father Kosta Kaltsides. He's an Orthodox priest who loves to tell stories about Ancient Greece.

Don't imitate / emulate Douglas Coupland. I hate Douglas Coupland. Okay, don't get me going. Seriously. Ugh.
I'd rather hear Magnus, read Magnus, etc.

Down boy, down. If it helps I have only read one and a half books by Copeland. (Though I have been meaning to read Gen X and Microserfs)
