插曲一﹒《天淨沙》

Posted on

因為「Game以載道」這個書名讓人有點難以理解,覺得需要一個副題。「一個XX的自述」,「北上創業之路」之類的。其實相當老土。

卻無論如何想不到合適的。不是太長,就是不夠清楚。老編提議,也可以寫一小段文字放在封面,但不放進ISBN的書名記錄。

這大大增加了創作空間。然而時間緊逼,已經截稿,還是想不出來。

連封面都設計好了,有一天卻忽然想起一首很喜歡的元曲,《天淨沙》(好像懂得很多元曲的口吻,很有文學修養似的,其實這是唯一一首記得的)。

《天淨沙﹒秋思》 馬致遠

枯籐 老樹 昏鴉
小橋 流水 人家
古道 西風 瘦馬
夕陽西下 斷腸人在天涯

這曲的特別之處在於﹣在我哩民的眼中﹣由很多名詞組成,給我一種莫名奇妙的親切感。細想之下,原來是因為一埋並排的名詞好像web 2.0風格的標籤(tags)。

於是奉行拿來主義,弄首元曲2.0。

《天淨沙﹒Game以載道》

香港 中國 世界
理想 現實 虛擬
執着 妥協 爭扎
Game道行者 十年創業之路

「熟讀唐詩三首,不懂吟詩也會偷」所言非虛。或許沒有詩意,但總算可以達意。

也算是第一次填詞吧,雖然不是流行曲。 還好不用考慮是否「合哂合尺」,勉強應付得來。

    難怪覺得有點熟悉... 不過我還以為這副題是出版社想的 @@ btw, 2.0的theme不錯哦~

    hahaha....without reading this article, i didn't find out there is 《天淨沙﹒Game以載道》 on the left bottom corner.....sorry...i was too distracted by the lovely book cover!!! :P It's good book (read half of it, hope finish all tonite), although some of them i already read here. And it's really made me think "Game以載道", what game i should make (sigh..); however, my effort is really limited.

      some say the cover doesn't match. but of cos you and i like it, even if it's true that it doesn't match (actually i don't think so). but the printer hasn't handled the color very well, it's supposed to be significantly brighter.. now it's dark. continue to make great games la. consider returning hk some time!

    我真係以為你喺度模仿緊啲tags... 完全無聯想到係 "枯籐 老樹 昏鴉......" (《天淨沙》個名我就無論如何都記唔住啦, 就正如我記唔住絕大多數的歌名, 包括古典或流行曲都係!) 枉我讀過中國文學! :P
