How about a long dance version with extended hair solo on MFSL
gold-plated discs in lift-lock cases?  And I want your lab report on
my desk by 9 AM Friday!

I've been here, watching, waiting for that void of Katelessness to
pass over this group, while moving twice in the same month and car
shopping.  Also, I've been busting my hump optimizing code for a
processor I've hated for years, and trying futilely to understand why
|>oug et al have been positively rabid over Sinead O'Connor for the
last 8 months.  I mean sure, it's phenomenal for a debut album, and
she has a certain interesting sound, but the lyrics might as well be
lifted from a breakfast cereal box.  But I digress.  I'd be glad to
oblige you with an analysis but you may have to wait a bit, as (1) my
hasty coast-to-coast translation has left me apart from my stereo, (2)
although I have just replaced my faithful but late Sony D-5 with a
D-15, I have only half of my Kate discs with me, and (3) my modesT
arKhives are back east.

_Alien_, I would venture, is the _PG IV_ aka _Security_ of SF films.
Stark, austere, but with a purpose, a depth of vision beyond argument.

And besides, the cover art is almost as weird as a Giger painting.

Shouldn't that be "tired illusions drown in the night"?  Disgust would seem
more appropriate for Dolby here than mockery.

Yer darn tootin.  Having been all of the above at one time or another,
I resent that categorization.  Hell, openmindedness is how I *became*
a Katefan.

Shaddup and pass the chalice.
