My name is David Charleston. I’m not one of the Reckoners, but I intend to join them. I have something they need. Something precious, something incredible. Not an object, but an experience. I know his secret. "I’ve seen Steelheart bleed." In a book (series) about superheroes whose powers turn heroes insane and malevolent through the use of them, This outlines exactly how valuable information really is. David, The protagonist finds himself in the midst of a tyrannic uprising. A single man killing everything that dares defy him and leaving a trail of solid steel in his wake. His father is killed, but not before giving his son a gift. The information needed to kill the tyrant himself. For me, it's the simple fact that the incident meant nothing to anyone involved until the finale, where David realizes the true weakness of the now self proclaimed god, was a lack of fear. He made such a big show out of ruling with an iron fist, becoming the nightmare that everyone HAD to see him as in order to protect himself. The Man, Who was essentially, and effectively immortal, could only be hurt by someone who did not fear him.
This is a line from the song "Digital Love" In which the singer describes a dream he had. Many wonderful things happen in the dream and when it ends, he gives us the quote. I personally find this basically sums up attraction, unrequited love, and infatuation. Just the constant confusion in your heart of seeing someone and imagining what life would be like with them in it, only to have that fantasy torn apart with some realization of reality and self worth. It's a desperate struggle to find someone that "completes" you and the song and more importantly my sentence, is the simplest way to describe the feeling. I am aware that this is a song. Because the movie "Interstella" Includes no audio other than the Album "Discovery" I felt that this was an effective loophole.
This is just one of many quotes from my all-time favorite tv shows, VGHS. The quote is from Ted's father, Freddie. It appears in an arcade machine sponsored by Mr. Wong, called Guitar Legends. Upon receiving the lowest score possible, Freddie appears onscreen and gives us the quote. Freddie is a terrible father to Ted and as Ted has always been terrible at rhythm gaming, I believe that Freddie placed that quote in there possibly for him to find, as this is very similar to how he speaks to his son throughout the show. Just a side note, The lowest difficulty of the arcade game is named after Freddie's son.
according to the official lyrics of the Barry Manilow song sampled, The song is actually saying "something's in the air" But when I first heard this song, what I thought they were saying was "The Air Belongs to us" which at the time was the one thing I came back to in times of need, a sort of mantra, if you will. I did eventually realize the truth. Regardless, What I thought the song was saying gave me more and meant more to me than the actual lyrics ever could. (A song built from a vocal sample of Barry Manilow’s “Who’s Been Sleeping In My Bed?”)
