New "My New Invention" High Point

Today was a glorious day in the long and illustrious history of My New Invention.

Today, a co-worker of mine quoted "City In My Brain" in an email. Here's the excerpt:

"Agreed, sometimes just throwing stuff out there and seeing what sticks is the best way to get some dialogue going and come up with some solutions...knowing enough about the place to be dangerous can be good, as the song says, "I'm not the mayor, just the mail man"."

The context of the email discussion was about taking "crazy pills", and suggesting ideas that are off the wall, simply for the sake of getting people to think in new directions.

But who cares. How cool is that. Someone who isn't in the band is quoting the band. Last time that happened, we were still in college. It was Julian Kingston who said "Who am I but to follow", which was also a stroke of pure genius.

So it looks like we are quoted about once every fifteen years. At this rate, it'll be 2022 by the time we're next quoted. Oddly enough, that's right around the time that Future Bitch is expected to be crushing skulls across the dystopian wastelands which are currently our country.

Something to look forward to.

Dude, you're way off base. In 2022 there will still be a cool 35 years left before the noted antihero is due to tread upon anybody's abandoned cranium.
