I've searched hi and low and I can't find a written version of the poem told with signs on the way into Burning Man '06. I thought I'd be able to read and write it down on my way out, but by then most of the signs had been removed or taken. I'd much appreciate being shown where this might be, if someone knows. Jonathan

This totally reminded me of the spoken-word interlude in the middle of Thomas Dolby's Key To Her Ferrari.

I need to get a CD copy of Aliens Ate My Buick - actually, I need CDs of all his early work. I'm one of those weirdos who likes the deeper cuts, so while I have Retrospectacle, it means I'm missing things like Hot Sauce or Cloudburst on Shingle Street from The Golden Age of Wireless.

I'm just thrilled to read on his blog that he's going to start recording new material again....
