I love this song. So much, in fact, that a few nights ago I came frighteningly close to singing it on karaoke.

What is it? It's 'not available', and only tells me that the 'video is not available available in your country' when I try to follow the link.

Justin, it's 10,000 Maniacs - Candy Everybody Wants.

Mac, now *that* I would have liked to see. :o)

Well, thank [imaginary diety] that didn't happen. If it had, I think it would have been one of the signs of the Apocalypse.

I would suggest, however, in order to bring on the Singularity, it may be required that you do an uber-parody of William Shatner's 1978 "Rocket Man" interpretation, if that's even humanly possible.

The choice is yours, although one minor consequence may be the end of all life on earth.

Intense has a lot of great ideas, but this is genius. Allow me to take it one step farther and suggest an album with "Rocket Man" as the feature tune, and wait for it..... Shatner and Mac in duet. I would seriously pay money for that.

"Rocket Man" was my favorite song when I was little. (I've always loved anything having to do with space travel.) These days I'm more of a "Space Oddity" man.

Oh, and I'll have you know I can hold my own on karaoke!

"...Shatner and Mac in duet."

Before this radical silliness goes too far, I should warn you that now you're really tempting fate. This is a terriby dangerous, horrifying idea, Michael.

Such a duet, with a "Rocket Man" postmodern interpretation (I suspect awkward jazz dancing to atonal bongo drumming in the background might also be involved), would surely cause the entire multiverse to implode.

Now, we don't want that, do we? On second thought... 8^}
