I was watching ESPN after work one evening, and when supper was ready, I left the TV on when I went into the kitchen. Minutes later, I heard a laugh track coming from the other room. Since I didn't know of any ESPN shows with a laugh track, I went back in the living room to check.
The TV was now tuned to "Married. . .With Children," and my cat was sitting on the couch. Now, I understand how a cat can operate a remote, but what was sweet little Lizzie doing watching that show?
As the plane touched down on the Glasgow Airport runway, I
recall making mental preparations for the 3-week adventure that lay
ahead for me as I trekked throughout awe-inspiring Scotland. Being
the tenacious, relentless metal fan that I am, this trip wasn't just
going to be majestic scenery and copious Scotch whiskey. There would
be metal, I thought to myself. So as my mate and I meandered about
the country in our economy rental car, fearing for our lives as a
result of right-hand steering and left-hand shifting, I daydreamed of
the remote possibility of there being a wholly undiscovered
underground scene taking place in a country greatly unrepresented in
the annals of metal history.

Steve Reich Composer: used phasing of parts with an unusual number of beats per bar to create
a timeless quality yet still rhythmic. I think that influenced me on 'Battle of the Leaves'.
Keith Jarret: Jazz piano: some of his more esoteric work had a pastoral quality which I
tried to recreate in some of the tracks.
Yes: Close to the edge. Its an all encompassing and a totally absorbing experience.
It is all top of the line professional DJ equipment. My sound systems are composed of top of
the line Rane, Numark or computerized. My speakers are powered Yamaha's and Yorkville.
My microphones are UHF Shure UT Series and Gemini UHF as well as corded mics. With
brand names like these you get a great sounding system. It is fully digital anti-skip technology. In the remote possibility that an emergency prevents me
from getting to your event, I am happy to say that I have a full backup plan.
A dog brings a sand-covered sandal, someone finds the stump of a cigar, and the only area of colour on Bibis leaden face is the strawberry jam in the corner of his mouth. Shirley answers a call on a mobile phone that isnt hers, and the swimming pool security guard gets a little closer than she would like. Its time to go, but she no longer has the key to her ex-room in the Vidigal slum, and the coach to São Paulo is becoming an increasingly remote possibility.
