    HUMAN HUMAN HUMAN HUMAN
    I'd just like to quickly apologize for the high concentration of Daft Punk references on this page, for now. I just saw them live last night and am doubly obsessed, if that's even possible. I'm only human, after all.

    Aside from my musical preferences though, I've been thinking quite a bit about something lately. The show was outdoors. Surrounded by fog-shrouded tall trees on all sides of the venue along with the faded stars and a bright moon resting on the blackness above me, I began thinking a great deal about how interesting all this was. All of these thousands of people paid a great deal of money to go listen to a couple other people on stage recreate familiar music that merely says Look at how human we are! Dancing! Love! Humanness! Life! I am alive! ALIVE!

    And we are a tribe dancing around the fire to the drums. Nothing more. But we're alive. And that's all that matters.

    exactly. that's why it's so wonderful. in the middle of the show, i had a random exchange with another audience member:

    him: "this is incredible!"
    me: "i know, man! they're not from here!"
    "what!?"
    "i said, they're not from here! they're from another planet!!"
    "oh! i know!! france my ass!"

    Ronny, my friend, you never have to apologize for any amount of Daft Punk references. :-)

    re: Obviously Subtle,

    "funny how a couple of robots can show us how human we are."

    brilliant statement. And it exposes a principle than can manifest itself in so many interesting and profound ways:

    "Can one appreciate success if he has never known failure?"

    "Can one identify good if he has never experienced evil?"

    And on and on and on... I dont know if theres one thing about perception and perspective that cannot apply to this principle.
