Johnny Truant

So it's 1:30 and I have nothing better to do but search YouTube, as I was looking in the related videos of a band's video I saw a band called Johnny Truant. I noticed the name sounded kind of familiar so I picked up House of Leaves and what do you know, it's the guy from the book. The band is a pretty hardcore band (metalcore technically if you wanna get into that). So I googled Johnny Truant and what do I find, another band that I listen to The Fall of Troy, has a song called "You Got A Death Wish, Johnny Truant?".... Just it was interesting that this book has such a far reach into other creative medias, maybe a final project idea??

Yeah, not only does it have a weird reach into popular culture, but part of the last sections of the novel are *about* the weird reach into popular culture that it's going to have. Obviously you don't have a formal idea yet, but see where these bands take you - there might well be something worth writing about there.
