Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of 31 days. Todays a song is:
Hail the Nightmare: Bloodborne
For those of you who don’t know I used to work retail, and I hated almost every minute of it. Between the unreasonable demands of the job itself to the equally unreasonable demands of the “holier than thou” customers I found myself feeling rather miserable. This was also coupled with a change in management that left us with worst assistant manager we ever had. She was primarily the reason why I left the Job to begin with. I guess I should thank her because I’m doing quite well now.
“But Agent9, what does this have to do with Bloodborne?” I hear you ask.
We’ll all that negativity has to come out one way or another, and it manifested itself into a strange headcannon I had for work. I would hear a song or simply muse for a bit and it would just form in my mind. In this specific case I replaced the Wal-Mart chant with this song, mostly because they would chant during a meeting that I was never a part of due to holding down 3+ departments on my own. I hardly ever knew what those meetings covered.
In my headcannon Wal-Mart takes a copy of Jack and Jill (or any other such Adam Sandler film) and soaks it in a pool of liquid that is actually the distilled joy of the employees who work there. They then sacrifice it to Sam Walton, who actually isn’t dead but has transcended humanity and has become Wal-Mart (all of them). If Sam is pleased he will grant you a boon called “The Subway Bonus”, which is basically a $30-$35 quarterly bonus that would let you buy 1 sandwich a day for a week at subway.
I got a decent chuckle out of this at the time. Looking back I have to say that music (and this song in particular) played a very big part in helping me cope with my situation. It’s really strange, that a song meant to induce a bit of fear would be the one to help me get through a bit of a rough patch in my life.
