on the 8
It’s been a long time coming, so here’s the next installment of the latest random output to come out of my perpetually shuffling-repeating iPod.

Instead of the usual five tracks, I’ve expanded out to eight, to match up with 8trk’s Favorite 8, like I said I would. Gotta keep up with the Joneses!

So here we go:

1. “Torture”, KMFDM - Maybe in a day or so I’ll stumble on that grassy knoll.

2. “Waiting For Tonight”, Jennifer Lopez - Found a sacred place, lost in your embrace.

3. “Party For Your Right to Fight”, Public Enemy - It takes a nation of millions to hold us back.

4. “Hello, I Love You”, The Doors - Do you hope to pluck this dusky jewel?

5. “Stand (The Scrumfrog Extended Re-Hash)”, Jewel - It’s not all dirty, but it’s not all clean.

6. “Pusherman”, Curtis Mayfield - Your main boy, thick and thin.

7. “Weapons of Mass Distortion”, The Crystal Method - [instrumental, no lyrics]

8. “Get Down Tonight”, KC & The Sunshine Band - Same place, same time.

I’m thinking I’ll have to get tickets to see “Absinthe”, an adults-only acrobat show that’s billed as Cirque du Soleil on acid.

But who needs acid when the show’s namesake alcoholic spirit would do almost as good a hallucinogenic trick? I guess it’s too much to hope for the Pier 17 concession stand to stock a few bottles of the stuff.

Even without the drink, the prospect of audience participation is tempting enough:

That’s not to say that everyone will have a topless beauty fall into his lap or, perhaps less pleasingly, a greasy-haired degenerate slurp on his toes — as happened to one critic from The Associated Press on the night I attended. If you don’t like audience participation, best keep your shoes tied tightly.

Well, this is New York, after all. You should keep your shoes tied tightly anyway — greasy-haired degenerates abound.
