There are two feelings that deserve words in the dictionary to describe them:
- The feeling when you are randomly flipping channels and accidentally discover that one of your favorite movies is playing on a channel you never watch.
- The feeling when you discover that an artist you love has put out work (e.g. music) that you didn’t know existed.
I came up with a word for the first one: Serendipiteevee. It’s what I felt when I just discovered A Hard Day’s Night was playing on a channel called Palladia. That such a channel exists is proof of a benevolent God; because how else could a channel no one has heard of even survive?
I don’t have a word for the second feeling– discovering new music by a favorite artist. But that just happened when I found that Beirut put out a delightful song called Mimizan for the charity compilation album Dark Was the Night.
