[Jandek] I just realized that I'm dead

So I'm still reeling from the idea that Jandek performed live, which I've said again and again would never happen, and everybody kinda understood would never happen.

And then it occured to me this morning that I own a copy of SMiLE that isn't bootlegged from anything. That was obvious, right? SMiLE couldn't come out - it had been 37 years!  it was unfinishable.  Wilson would never do it. He said so himself.

So Brian Wilson releases SMiLE and Janky jams out, all in the same four weeks.

That's when I realized that I'm dead.  This is heaven (cause in Hell there is no Jandek or Brian Wilson, just Peter Cetera, alll the tiiiiime, and it's always that Karate Kid song) and I haven't realized it yet.

So, could anyone tell me how I died, cause this has gone on too long to be a dream, and I don't feel like waking up tomorrow to see the headline "Elvis Really Did Fake Death" as the headline of the New York Times.

Or, if I am alive (and I seem to be, in spite of evidence to the contrary) I'll say this:

What a damn month to be alive.

Still jittery about getting those MP3's,
