Visited an old friend today. A practice to assess my mental health.
View attachment 172206
I know folks who "can't get" this music. They either hate it or dismiss it completely as not even worthy of an opinion. Some suggest it is silly, or amateurish ... goofy and not to be taken seriously ... strange and unlistenable ... or just plain ol' unlistenable. I wouldn't want to be like those folks.

So every once in a while I take out this Residents album (or one of the others in my collection -- I have quite a few) and give it a spin on my VPI Scoutmaster, just to see what my reaction to it is. As I said, to assess my mental health -- as a measure of my sanity.

I wouldn't want to be like those folks I mentioned above. Apparently I'm not. At least not yet. I visited the sublime and pronounce myself "still sane".
Your description is fitting... :censored:
