I had thought before about those lyrics from "When You Emerge." I certainly wish I could have been at show with you and Ian—thanks for the witness.

I very much liked your remarks about psychedelia, which can be a mental, emotional, spiritual or artistic direction. I've often written on anime using the language of psychedelics. Richard Condon (whom, I've discovered, seems to have done a dozen other good novels besides THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE) said in his 1966 ANY GOD WILL DO that "self-delusion is at once the most dangerous and most valuable attribute of the human animal." Because the base reality state of the human animal, of course, is just an animal—the human part has come from the ability to conceive of things as they aren't, thinking about unreality. I should say that 2005 might seem retro from the perspective of 1966. This eMac has considerably more power than every computer NASA had back then; yet they used theirs to round the moon. The difference is a culture of imagination.

Besides the obvious inspiration of the album name for the party, listening to it (my favorite track is "You've Been Unkind") has inspired me to a re-design of the event poster...

So One Missed Call's playing at my local indie theater Friday. Should I catch it?

I just took a dump. Should I wipe?

....Someone spoofed me on that last post.

One more observation about the Portland show: before one number, a local girl whispered something in Matthew Smith's ear. It seemed she asked him if she could get up on stage and play her tambourine during the next piece, because that's what she did. Afterwards Courtney turned to her and said, "Don't steal all my thunder, baby."
