Ben,

I’ve got a project I’m working on. At last! It sprang to life last night for no reason while I was talking to SW. We all know that I am at my best when utterly obsessed by something specific. Well, for the next 36-72 hours, I will be! Unfortunately, this means that by the time the Sega CD gets here, I’ll probably already have moved onto something else that’s NOT building a robot that can play Desert Bus. C’est la vie.

I’ve also been trying to write a song about Voyager (the craft, not the 3rd rate Star Trek series) for the new Housewives and Hard Drives album. I think the hardest thing to write about is something you’re sincerely passionate about. Everything I write feels pretty trite. Is that because I’m trite? Or am I tricking the idea into being casual and aloof? Regarding your last letter, I don’t want this to turn into a cutesy Juno Moldy Peaches thing. That’s the last thing I want on Earth, or on the outer edges of the solar system.
