Subject: her name’s laurie anderson

Dear Stacey,
I think the singer you’re thinking of is Laurie Anderson and the lyric is (I’m such a pedant, but I love Laurie Anderson) the sun came up like a big bald head.
I understand why you thought it was big boiled egg, and perhaps this could be better lyric if the moment was right.

For interest, the song is called Sharkey’s Day from the album Mister Heartbreak. The line continues:
The Sun came up like a big bald head, poking over the grocery store.

The other lyric I like of hers is:
All of nature talks to me. If I could only figure out what it was trying to tell me.

I feel like this a lot. The world is constantly trying to give me information but I have no idea how to decipher it.

Like your last e-mail.

I guess the world (and you) is trying to tell me something, but as always I can’t work it out.

Are you saying you would contemplate meeting me for a hot beverage or are you blowing me off?
(Which if you are, is cool)




    Are you sure this isn't me?

  2. tis like...'I can not look away' - waiting with excitment for the next installment. thanks Stephen for sharing.

  3. John, this makes me want to read your e-mails one day...

  4. Kym, I know - isn't it amazing. Like a car Crash-blog. Thank you for joining and following too. I hope you enjoy the unfolding to come.

  5. It feels like it will end nihilistically (if that's what I understand from it's meaning)... but only from experience or cynicism.

  6. Wow. No offense to any Dom Borax fans, but the guy seems desperate for companionship. I mean, I don't if the internet was an injection of confidence back in 1999, but c'mon, he's really pushing the laws of gravity. I doubt a giant skyscraper he would never speak that out if he had met her in person from this e-mail. (Popcorn chewing... next page)

  7. Things have changed since 1999. I commend Dom for sticking his neck on the chopping block and actually writing something that clearly has a lot of though behind it. If Dom had written to Stacey nowadays, it would have been something like this: "Poke. Dom 'likes' your profile. Dom can haz hot bevRG wit u? LOL."
