So, this morning I was sitting in a cafe, doing some reading and sipping an iced soy latte. (Because it is apocalyptic weather here in the Bay Area, where we are worried about drought and about fires already in January.)

And Johnny Cash's Mercy Seat started playing. "Hee," I thought, because it always reminds me of [ profile] lim's amazing John Sheppard vid I Am/Lamb.

So I'm listening to Johnny Cash tell me about a crime of which he's totally innocent, you know, and doing my crossword puzzle.

And then ... wtf? The next song on the playlist is Iron and Wine's Evening on the Ground. Or, as I think of it, [ profile] hollywoodgrrl's Evening on the Ground. ALSO a John Sheppard vid, also awesome.

When the next song to play was Iggy Pop's "I Wanna Be Your Dog," I nearly choked on my latte. John Sheppard again? This time in [ profile] thingswithwings's a lieutenant colonel is being beaten?

Seriously, guys, if I was not listening to some barrista's vid songs playlist, that she used to enjoy fannishness while at work, I don't know what was going on -- that's one heck of a coincidence: three genres, three eras, connected only as Awesome John Sheppard vids.

I should totally have asked the barrista on duty whose mix CD it was. I could've made a new fannish friend!

...There's no way that's a coincidence!

Wow. That can't be a coincidence. Also, I have to watch Evening on the Ground again because that vid is amazing.

I think you really should have asked that barista. I have special playlists with only songs from vids (because when I can't get my vids? I get the songs of my vids!). Maybe the barista was actually hoping someone would notice! Go back there and keep us up to date with it :)

(hi, btw, I'm a lurker on your lj... now you know! :) )
