Pity he purchased an erroneous map, which had Klamath Falls somewhere just north of Paris. His dayglo beret and tattered blue doctor martin's looked silly in Paris, where he landed somewhat awkwardly on the west bank, breaking up a political meeting of shiites gathered 'round a flaming race horse.

Christ, I'm posting early today (9:45!!!*yawn....*). Anyway, been listening to 'Eye' way too much the last week or two, and I've come to an observation (apart from the fact that Robyn is one amazingly f--king underrated guitarist), either 'Eye' is a loosely based concept album (possible), or (more likely) it appears to be the soundtrack for the story contained within. Of course, I could be way off. It is, for me, very early.

cushca: i'm so sorry you're sad today. tell me what happened, and i'll try to make it better. email me if it involves names and details.

FROM: Sleepy
DATE: Tue Dec 2 06:19:00 PST 1997
For Cushca I might choose (it's got to be RH, not Soft Boys, by the way):- I Often Dream of Trains, Glass Hotel, If You Were A Priest, Flesh No.1, Alright Yeah, Beautiful Queen and Autumn Is Your Last Chance. I will probably change my mind in the next 5 minutes...

FROM: Cushca

You should be saying something sweet to me considering the fact that I'm so monumentally miserable and wallowing in self pity. So there. I'm pouting now.

DATE: Tue Dec 2 06:11:46 PST 1997
If we can just get Robyn to dye his hair green and fashion it into two pointy horns on the side of his head, I don't think she'll notice the difference!

FROM: Myk Murphy
DATE: Tue Dec 2 06:10:21 PST 1997
oh, i was hoping it was for cushca! i'm sure she'll enjoy it. if you add a loud drum machine and some spurious noises to it, robyn's music can sound just like prodigy.

FROM: Myk Murphy
DATE: Tue Dec 2 06:08:44 PST 1997
perhaps Republica girl is having a large rug weaved for her by your boss, sleepy. you never know. cushca: say something sweet to me. heh.

FROM: Sleepy
DATE: Tue Dec 2 06:08:15 PST 1997
You're asking the most indecisive person in the world. Hmm. I'll have to think about it. I'm going to introduce Cushca to the wonderful world of Robyn.

FROM: Myk Murphy
DATE: Tue Dec 2 06:06:18 PST 1997
how about you, sleepy? what 7 songs would YOU choose? or are you asking because you're making a compilation tape to introduce a friend to robyn's wonderful world?

FROM: Sleepy
DATE: Tue Dec 2 05:59:43 PST 1997
Only one 'o' was required in that 'too'.

FROM: Sleepy
DATE: Tue Dec 2 05:58:47 PST 1997
That sounds good. I'll do a little poll or something and choose the seven most popular ones. I bet no-one else joins in. CW will - I'll force him too!

FROM: Myk Murphy
DATE: Tue Dec 2 05:55:58 PST 1997
as for the 7 songs, here goes: Raining Twilight Coast, Airscape, Devil's Radio (brilliant, underrated song), Wax Doll, Ride, Bass, Autumn is Your Last Chance. how's that?

Those kiosks would take days to build...

FROM: Sleepy

No. She was in this building for some reason. I'm sure Figgy eats what all other cats eat - steak, chips and peas.

FROM: Myk Murphy
DATE: Tue Dec 2 05:51:12 PST 1997
when i mentioned the classical architecture style bit, i meant the office buildings, not the kiosks. kiosks with long vertical stone columns would be silly.

FROM: Myk Murphy
DATE: Tue Dec 2 05:48:39 PST 1997
i found it very interesting, sleepygirl. was she at the bagel shop? do rock stars eat bagels at all? what do they eat? while we're at it, what does robyn eat? what does his cat Figaro (figgy) eat?

FROM: Sleepy
DATE: Tue Dec 2 05:48:08 PST 1997
Here's a question for all posters. If you had to choose seven Robyn songs to introduce someone to his work, which ones would you choose?

FROM: Myk Murphy
DATE: Tue Dec 2 05:47:03 PST 1997
i once saw Republica play at a street festival held every year in downtown dc. it's odd to see a stage and food kiosks set up on a street of office buildings, many in the classical architecture style so favored here.

FROM: Sleepy
DATE: Tue Dec 2 05:46:10 PST 1997
Not that that's of any interest to anyone!
