the brim with heated discussions about the relative advantages of various
prohibitively expensive electronic sound manipulation
devices. I am an emotionally under-developed, and compensationally
cereberal, pseudo-artist with poor social skills, who is either
too egotistical, too insecure, or just too deaf to share a stage or to
understand the value of collaborating with other musicians.
Perhaps I have given up on finding the right combination, or hide behind
the delusion that my musical profundity exceeds the
abilities of all those guys who seem to be able to pack clubs despite
their "barbarian" and simplistic overtures.

knowing that, until the day that a replicator is perfected to instantly
clone humans, this is as close as I can get to the ultimate
dream of an entire orchestra of only me playing every note exactly how I
imagine it. The closer the manufacturers of electronic
sound manipulation devices get to realizing this dream, however, the more
critical I become, and the more impatient I become as
well, because I realize that the absolute elimination of randomness and
chaos is inherently impossible in a universe such as this,
and it is this realization that makes me wail like a banshee, or, more to
the point, like an infant who has wet his bed and realizes
he is helpless to prevent it. Come see me play at this coffe shop/art
gallery/library lobby, to people who either stare off into
space, nod "appreciatively", or just ignore me completely. That's just
fine. It on!
