666 is happy now

6
6.

Listening to the French Elli & Jacno minimalistic masterpiece L'âge atomique, from their 1980 synthpop album Tout Va Sauter, it suddenly dawned to the Reverend that the Church was, as the cliché goes, nearly 6 years young. Suddenly he felt 666 years old.

In a streak of well-rehearsed, but overacted and slightly pathetic drama, the Reverend looked for Robert Wyatt's Rock Bottom, probably the best record ever made, not in his CD collection, as he probably wouldn't find it, but on Spotify. Even old geezers have to go ahead with time.

"What am I doing it for", he sighed, "pearls for the swine", drinking a tequila. It was his first, but it wouldn't be his last.

The ping of an incoming mail message lead him to the hidden corners of the Late Night forum. It was a message of the Astral Piper's high priestess, who had telepathically received his cry for help. She wrote:

We two are the original dinosaurs.

At that exact moment Robert Wyatt sang:

Your lunacy fits neatly with my own
my very own
We're not alone...
(Sea Song)

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
Hamlet (1.5.167-8).

Happy sixth anniversary,
Holy Church of Iggy the Inuit.
