Last night I was listening to the election returns on a local station streaming NPR. This has all been documented somewhere else. Point for our purposes here is this: I was looking for that station again when I woke up -- poking around in iTunes for it -- and I found this New Age station by mistake. Naturally, I had to check it out.
When I tuned in, they were playing a cut off Aquaria: A Liquid Blue Trancescape by somebody calls herself Diane Arkenstone. Cut was called The Treasure Caves and it sounded...
Before I bailed, ears bleeding, I caught the start of a tune titled Eternal, by F.R.E.U.D. -- cute, eh? -- off a CD called Time Passengers. That one went a little...
It sounds like in the last part of that clip some chick is going, "Now it's become so real..." Yeah, I know what she means. It was already getting way too real for me.
Then this evening as I was slumming around YouTube trying to figure out what happened in that Virginia Senate race, I stumbled onto this. Don't ask how I got from Virginia to the rock-n-roll suburbs of Naked Lunch, but do notice how this tune differs -- in so many ways -- from the track samples called out above...
btw, that's what Keith Richards was doing in 1992, around the same time Tim Berners-Lee was giving the first demo of the World Wide Web at CERN. Seems like just yesterday, don't it?
what's in my heart
come a long way
well since you beat it up
wicked as it seems just run out of dreams better of two evils babe
the unlikely story of how America slipped the surly bonds of earth & came to
believe in signs & portents that would make the middle ages blush
