Spreading the Joy

When I can't sleep my emotional state mirrors this screenshot from Mike Oldfield's "Pictures in the Dark" video:
You see what I mean? There's a choirboy with a crooked collar, and an '80s girl with lopsided breasts, and Mike Oldfield is in a muscle shirt, screaming, with fireworks.

That's how I feel.

Hi Mark! It's hard to differentiate between the anonymous folk. :)

Mike Oldfield crosses the line into "cheesy awful" pretty frequently...I don't know whether it's him or his PR people. I still love much of what he does ("Amarok!") but he can make me cringe.

Note to self: must read "The Magus."

And what a surprise to have Madonna in our midst! Pop-star or religious icon (or both)?

According to our receptionist, she picked up the phrase "suck it up, Princess" from her daughter.

But Mike, so much of what you've done in the last 6 years has been crappy. WHY?!?

the creative juices are drying up Muffy. Too many years on the road I am afraid. Plus, that chick with the lopsided breast really fucked me up one night.

That's no way to talk about your wife.

Here's my recommendation, Mike: stop trying to be a pop star, an Ibiza house convert, and a hippy-yoga-guru all at once. Retreat back behind your ego and make a new single-album song (and DON'T call it "Tubular Bells 4!") Bring back Maggie Riley. Ditch the sequencers. Don't sing.

And I'll be there! Taurus! TAURUS!
