"THE HAPPENING"/THE HAPPENING

Spurred on by a discussion going on over at The Cooler, I started wondering - again - if the title for M. Night Shyamalan's new film was lifted from the Pixies' song of the same name.

Not that it matters at all, it's just fun to think about. (Area 51 is getting some love this year as it was featured in the opening to Indy 4).

And it's important not to forget how awesome that Pixies song was (The footage may not be great, but it's from 1991! Pretty awesome. Consider, also, that this was before Nevermind had happened.):



I love that the chorus is nothing but extended, bending, harmonized notes between Frank Black and Kim Deal.
