Nobody was injured, and my car is still drivable.

A funny thing happened on the way to the post office to mail those fat tax checks on Friday: I got rear-ended, and ended up in a 4 car fender bender.

The one shot above that isn't of my car is of the instigator's vehicle. That's the one that struck me from the rear, and pushed me into the jeep in front of me, which in turn collided with a Volvo station wagon.

I still got my taxes taken care of. :-)

Monday morning, I have to get to police report from downtown and contact the instigators insurance company to start the claim process. Fun fun fun. I have a phone interview at 10 am (probably only with the HR rep.)

Remixing 'Bush of Ghosts'

Coinciding with the re-(re-re-)release of My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, Byrne and Eno have put up this website with, well, stuff on it. Not the least of which is the chance to download portions of the original work for you own remixing.

The site will be interesting to:

- people who consider that album to be a critical jumping of point in popular music toward genres built on "tribal" rythms

- people who consider that album a breakthrough of sorts in the use of "discovered" vocals in popular music

- people who just think that album is awesome because it sounds good to them

- people who are interested in the visual arts aspect of what they were doing at the same time, coming up with the album cover, song videos, and art-for-arts-sake

- people who are interested in process in art

- Byrne/Eno fan-boys

1. Do you still talk to the person you had your first kiss with?
I never saw her again after that day. Her name was Arlene. She was from Kentucky. I met her at King's Island in 1977 on my 8th grade class trip.

Put them safely away for the next time I really need them, which will be never.

3. What kind of music did you listen to in elementary school
So, like, grades 1 - 3? Whatever my older brother and sister did.
Sonny and Cher, the Carpenters, and a whole bunch of 45s our parents bought us, like
Winchester Cathedral
I Love Onions
Flowers on the Wall
Kansas City Star
We also had a bunch of LPs from Walt Disney, with Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,
that kind of thing, and The Chipmonks.
I distinctly recall how Mrs. Newhart was our bus driver those years, and she let us listen to WIFE AM radio. I really like "Tears of a Clown".

I'll let you know when I have one.

Class?

9. Quote a song lyric?
"Blank frank has a memory that’s as cold as an iceberg
The only time he speaks is in incomprehensible proverbs
Blank frank is the siren, he’s the air-raid, he’s the crater
He’s on the menu, on the table, he’s the knife and he’s the waiter"

without authorization.

at the party was interested in a) getting naked or b) seeing me naked.
You could say I was a little drunk.

32. Have you ever laughed so hard you cried?
Yes. There was one time in about 1990 when Billy Ray Fann and I were at
an Arby's in Connersville, IN. For some reason, we had an insane case of
the giggles, and we laughed so hard, for so long, that we cried and our
ribs were sore.
The most recent time was driving to FL last New Years, listening to Jim Gaffigan

were flowing down our faces. Good times.

A few times, as the designated driver. One time in particular in Louisville, KY,

at the Ford Truck Ass'y plant, so I volunteered to drive.
I made up for it the next night, big time.
