      "...when I was a child I´ve got a fleeting glimpse,
      Out of the corner of my eye.
      I turned to look but it was gone
      I could not put my finger on,
      And now, the child has grown.
      The dream is gone..."

      But we have J´s laser art to awake our inner child again. =)

      Hey, after all, the hardcore geek turns out to be a wonderful sensitive artist... I do welcome that. |-)

      I always suspected that the aliens listened to Pink Floyd... especially when they are chillin' on the dark side of the moon.

      "The lunatic is in my head...
      The lunatic is in my head...
      You raise the blade, you make the change
      You re-arrange (!) me 'til I'm sane.
      You lock the door, and throw away the key
      There's someone in my head but it's not me.

      And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
      You shout and no one seems to hear.
      And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes,
      I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

      "I can't think of anything to say except... I think it's marvelous! Hahaha!"

      Pink Floyd is Universal. |-)

      The skin buzz. The chill. Like goose bumps, but deeper...

      I just finished Steven Johnson's Mind Wide Open, which explains:

      "the shiver of pleasure we experience while listening to our favorite music is the release of endogenous opioids... Animals appear to have a chill response to music as well. In one widely cited study, he played dozens of records to chickens attached to equipment designed to record their shivers of pleasure. The chickens turned out to have the strongest postitive response to the late era Pink Floyd record The Final Cut."

      Whoa....

      Whoa!!

      Great discovery there, J!!! -and true-

      I´ve heard about plants growing inclinated to speakers playing classical music, but never about chickens with chicken skin by pinkfloydesque rhythms...

      Buzzingly bizarre animals
