Okay, Fuck It, I Lied - Four Years and a Day!

God, I'm hopeless. I couldn't help but take the obligatory test drive. With Horóscopo blaring from the inside of my car I realized I had at least another day of micro-tweaks to attend to, the sorts of alterations no one on Earth (or any other life-bearing body) would notice in ten billion years...

Wait - that's ridiculous. The nature of our perception of repetition is such that anomalous elements become more obvious with each iteration. Given a simultaneous demonstration (synch-locked to prevent phase drift), eventually even the most outlandishly addled listener would detect the changes made earlier on the 21st.

(Well, okay, forget O****, but every other outlandishly addled listener... Sorry, must remind myself that I'm an ethicist! Damn this cynicism!)

Tweaks were accomplished, and now - at long fucking last - it's absolutely, finally, done. Long sighs of relief... My eyes are totally blasted.

Thanks to all who emailed (and phoned) with messages of congratulations. Very kind of you.

Remind me to tell you about: Father's Day lunch, Ligeti's passing (sob!), TLASILA tour updates (another round of surprises and temporary personnel shifts), the Noon ETA, mp3 upload requests, the overhaul, and more.

Gotta hit the sack,
