Eye of the Dragon

Writer's Block: Too scary!!

Was there something you were afraid of as a child that just seems silly to you now?


Was there something you were afraid of as a child that just seems silly to you now?

Oh, quite the opposite.

Most of my childhood fears turned out to be entirely reasonable.

I doubt that my younger self would say the same about the anxieties of my adult life.

The Spirit of Radio: Conceptus Interruptus

AAAUGH.

The radio station just played one track from Rush's 2112 album.

For those who aren't familiar with it; 2112 is a "concept album" of the sort so beloved of Pretentious Prog Rock Bands like the Trio from Toronto. The "A" side is a single long story-based piece, divided into individual tracks solely for the sake of convenience.

Playing just "The Temple of Syrinx" is like ... like ... cutting off Star Wars right before the Death Star run.

Naturally, I have the CD, so I'm playing the entire album right the heck now, but, nevertheless, the damage is done. I'll have that irritating UNFINISHED feeling for the rest of the night.

How can you DO that?
