I’m living in a whirlwind right now. Writing on my next book which had to have an extension when I went into the move mode. Preparing a devotional that I’ll give to a distributor’s sales reps in Atlanta. Getting first of the month bills paid. Beginning to pack for my annual trip to the International Christian Retail Show, this year in Atlanta.
Anyway, I sat down this afternoon, TV on and magazine open in my lap, wanting to relax a bit. On one of the Starz channels was the 1996 movie, Executive Decision. I hadn’t seen the Kurt Russell vehicle in a long while so I watched the last 40 minutes of it. When the film went to some exterior shots of the troubled plane, I saw the airline’s name: Oceanic. Hmm. Oceanic. Oceanic. Isn’t that the airline in LOST?
So I popped over to Wikipedia. Sure enough. Turns out Oceanic Airlines is a fictional one that has been used in a number of films and television programs and at least one novel. The inside joke in Hollywood is that Oceanic is a disaster-prone company. How come I never noticed before? At least I know to dial 555 as the prefix to any Hollywood phone number.
Sometimes this blog is incredibly highbrow. Ha!
