Music Overheard on the train home tonight ... two men in suits ...
"So you know my sister?"
"The one who's a graphic designer? She's freelancing after y'know."
"And she's been working on TV, and she got three job offers. And she only knew about one of them."
"Well she knew about on a tv series series called Farscape."
"It's on the BBC. It's from Jim Henson, you know who made the Muppets."
"So she took that job because she knew what it was and she needed the money."
"Then she found out what the other jobs were that she couldn't take now. One was on the second Matrix film. And the other was Star Wars." [Originally posted 24th May 2002]
[Commentary: Because, presumably, you have to have a bit of Star Wars. A glance through the imdb would probably yield who the person they're speaking about is. Do people who work on films really worry about this stuff? Even with a show like Farscape, series television has to be more stable work than films, even scale films like Star Wars and The Matrix. Unless it was just for a few episodes, in which case, well hum. Either way if only conversations on public transport were always this interesting, and I wonder now if the two blokes would simply be looking at screens and talking to other people now, rather than engaging with one another.]
