Mad Max: Thunder Road
Welcome to No Mahah. It’s the place you’ve called home your whole life. There’s a few hundred of you here, In the middle of the Korn. The Korn make Kornolene, which feeds your machines and fuels your bellies. Korn stalks pave your roads, they raise your buildings when the steel wears out and the brick is shy. Korn is the number one cause of death here in No Mahah. They don’t take kindly to being harvested, and if your team gets careless, they don’t come home. The deeper you go, the fatter and sweeter the Korn is, and the better El Masa pays you. Which is still not much, but he owns the processing plant, and therefore he owns the town. Sometimes the Korn creep in a little too close to town, and Korn squads cut them back or burn them down with Kornolene fire. And sometimes, the Kornfield comes all at once. They demand a sacrifice--compost for their deep and powerful roots.
[Springsteen] You love this place because it’s your home and inside you’re terrified that you’re going to end up stuck here for the rest of your life with all the other losers. You don’t have much, and you could easily lose even that. But you’re a Romantic, you’ve gotta fight, and make something good out of the shit sandwich life gave you for dinner. You’ve got a dream, and you’re ready to make it happen.
