speaking of audiences and the communal experience of art, another nice thing the live audience provides is a perception of responses other than one's own. like the nervous laughter from the audience that just doesn't get it when frank zappa, or andy kaufman, or david lynch appears on a mainstream talk show, and then too, jay leno's reaction to lynch and fire walk with me.

    stomp - live on jimmy - with paul simon!

it's a new day

okay, even i find this a bit spooky.

current playlist is 17,000+ tracks.

three of the last eight tracks bythos "randomly" shuffled to were different live versions of muse's cover of nina simone's feeling good.

two would stand out...but three?
