If you think you know who that song is about, you're probably right.
I await Jake's analysis of the recording. I'm still iffy on the whole "good recording" thing, as it invariably involves me having to do much more than the 3 takes I can do before I get sick of playing a song.
Speaking of music, Kris has 4 Electrologica songs (but not his non-plastic-wrap cover of Asia Carrera) up on his Electrologica page. They range from pale shadows of ELO songs to pieces with astoundingly beautiful music and lyrics. Could it be that what we thought to be the actual musician Kristofer Straub is merely a solid-state recording of Kristofer Straub singing "Solid State"?
Finally let me mention that a lot of the songs in the Version 1.1.2pl14 directory are going to be moved into other directories when I start the albums they actually belong to. Interesting Places To Die will probably go on Standard Deviation, which I'm still working out the details of, and the tape-to-MP3age of the infamous FEEDBACK FEEDBACK FEEDBACK! bit (which I never linked to, but it's in the directory) will go on Dying Is Easy, Comedy Is Hard (hey, remember that?)
This entry is already huge, but before I go, a quote from an email I sent to jake after he used the nonsense subject line "semiotimatic":
It occurs to me that one could write a story about a Semiotimatic, in the style of Lem's story about the robotic poet. "Professors wrote learned articles arguing that a mere machine could never emulate the subtle nuances of human thought, but the Semiotimatic made their arguments better than they did, and they were forced to resign in disgrace."
If you don't know what semiotics is, look it up. I reccommend Semiotics, by L. Ron Hubbard.
