“Do You Realize”


That everyone you know someday … The Flaming Lips are shakin’ & makin’ me quite happy today. If you can’t afford that extra flame or want a simple goose in your pants, listen to “Do You Realize” (& watch too) here. Oh, come on.

Speaking of sparks, Coconut is also freshly on fire now~

And my Ted Kooser post ruffled some feathers, turned some heads, & made the news in the inaugural issue of Carnival of Speculum – yay!

Remember, we’re floating in space … & happiness makes you cry.

    January 17th, 2006 at 9:56 pm eI caught some of your Transmissions …Incidentally, Kevin, if you’re a diehard, iTunes has a pre-release from the upcoming album. The song is, of course, 99 cents, and is called, “The Wand.” On the Flaming Lips home page (flaminglips.com), you can watch a new video from that same forthcoming album, “At War with the Mystics” — the song is “Mr. Ambulance Driver.” Just click on the “Video” tab on the homepage.

    Their videos are simply beautiful, no? As they say in old school jargon, I’m vibing on ‘em … all day.
