The Policeman's Beard Is Half Constructed - Racter (1984)

Although a lot of this is nonsense, a computer writing about LOVE is rather remarkable.
Written in '1984' - irony anyone?

We like explosions that leave you feeling good
We like ideas that change the world for good
Theres nothing past the stop n go
Theres nothing but the ebb and flow
Theres nothing like some in and out
Theres nothing more than what you know
We like new places that jets cant take you to
We do like music when it does what it should do
We like explosions its only right we should
We like ideas we thought you understood
We like new places until theyre overrun
We do like music -- loud shots from the big spudgun

Win my bass/Peta2 Giveaway

Although I've had some differences in opinion, or direction with Peta and Peta2 in the past, I'm still vegan after 13 or so years and I still think they're one of the only publicly recognized organizations truly and relentlessly spearheading the animal rights movement. If you think the issue is too big to reverse, may I remind you we just elected a black president, go ask your grandparents if they ever thought they'd see the day. With the way the world is headed, especially in regards to our food supply, I think its time for people to wake up and snap out of their comfort zones and realize what's really going on here. Just in case you need a refresher course, I highly recommend reading this open letter to the president that Michael Pollan recently wrote. If I had to pick a side, and there were only two sides, the one for the animals and the other one, I'm pretty certain that I'd be standing alongside Peta, so...Whacktivism or not, here we come...

Go here, the rest is self explanatory.

NIN / DEP big-band 'Wish' Perth, Western Australia

In case you missed this...We got to join NIN ostage in Perth on March 2nd. Suffices to say, I'm humbled. NIN are, as I've more recently come to appreciate, one of a few truly inspiring bands both on and off the stage. As musicians, their conceptual scope far exceeds what most bands are capable of even imagining let alone executing - their lights are downright ridiculous, the way 'Something I Can Never Have' sounded with Justin on upright and Robin playing lap steel still creeps me out...and their new drummer, Ilan?! That dudes pocket was so deep you couldn't see the bottom! Like REAL deeeeeeeeep.
Anyway, all that I'm trying to convey here are the solid grooves and great vibes that each of their individual personalities (including those of their crew) were broadcasting. Thanks to Trent and the rest of the dudes for letting this happen and having such a great sense of humor about it...

"The Humbler"

I just think people better recognize the awesome powers of Danny Gatton...Committed suicide, virtual unknown. {Thank you Ryan Primak for turning me onto this absolute lunacy.}

Can you say, "Uhm, what dude?"

Can this dude please not shred me to tears on the glass harp?
And then he had to go and do the 'City Of Lost Children' theme...Yes dude, whoever you are, I thank you for keeping it real.

True Love
