Hadn't thought of it myself but you hit the nail on the head. Where do they find these people. I have heard a lot about the final video message each of these people left, but haven't seen any of them. Are they showing them on the news?

"Everyone's a stranger somewhere," apparently some more than others.

at lunch today one of my compadres began to sing a song in remembrance which certainly ought to come to the mind of anyone over 30..."this is major tom to ground control...tell my wife i love her very much...she knows, etc." yes virginia, there is a "space oddity". just don't forget the follow up track... "ashes to ashes"..."the shrieking of nothing is killing me, etc"

   or how about a more obscure track in keeping w/ the holiday...the catchers tune "jesus spaceman" ...."been to roswell been to mars...got a home among the stars..." actually any number of love and rockets songs somehow want to come to mind..."god and mr smith", "ball of confusion" (albeit a cover),"7th dream of teenage heaven", "an american dream" and quite a few tracks from "earth, sun, moon"..eg "everybody wants to go to heaven", "youth". it's really quite intriguing. what was it about those guys. i highly recommend all the solo work of late. a song from daniel ash's last cd also comes to mind both the album and track title i am having a hard time w/ just now...think the track may be called "the void" (title track? how embarrassing]). at any rate, the line goes something like "deep in the void today...the land of the lost not found". never have been to good w/ names/lyrics, etc. in conclusion i would say that the answer to the problem is well put in david j's track from "songs from another season" titled "take a closer look". or how about u2's "mofo" re looking for "someone to save my soul...something to fill that god shaped hole". what else can explain such stuff. we live in a lost world as the moodies sang so many years ago. as 10 years after put it..."i'd love to change the world, but i don't know what to do". we threw out our old answers and assumed science and technology had properly replaced religion. now we question progress and purely "rational thought". in u2's "wakeup dead man" bono asks if we can rewind the tape. you have to hope it's not like the buggles sang in "video killed the radio star", ie that "we can't rewind we've gone to far". happy easter. he is risen. jlc

Is it just me being a bit twisted or am I the only one who keeps thinking of Kundalini Express by L&R as the events in Rancho Santa Fe keep being hyped. Maybe NPR could use it as a bridge on All Things Considered.

Our beloved Pat's Come Friendly Spacemen was ahead of the curve on this count!

dreading another trip to Bakersfield,
