"Hey, Al."
"Yes, self?"
"It's almost midnight. Time for another song."
"Already? Crap. All right, what have I got lying around?"
"Lying around? Hey, what about a new one?"
"What? No, no time. Besides, people are going to see thru my 'bang it out on acoustic guitar thing' soon."
"Well, you'll have to suck that part up. You've got about 280 entries left to go."
"Fine, fine, whatever. I just don't have time for a new one tonight."
"All right, just don't give out any of the well-produced expensive ones. Gotta dole those out slowly."
"Right, I'll go to the cassettes. What have we got?"
"Well, let's stay away from Mindflux. We just introduced that stuff and we don't want to scare everyone away totally."
"Good point. I did just transfer some early 90's stuff onto the about that?"
"Is it from the 'OOP' album?"
"Noooooooo! That's pretty hardcore goofy. I've got that slated for 2007."
"Right. So....?"
"Instrumentals. From that LA period where Sook and I were sharing a pad and I was sleeping behind a cardboard box in the living room."
'No, really, some of this is pretty decent. Like this one, yeah, the drum sound is very...uh, 80's, but it's got a cool little tune. Always had a soft spot for it...."
"(Sigh) Fine. Just get to work on some new ones, all right?"
"Relax. I gave 'em a few new ones this week and some good archive stuff. I'm on track."
"Right, right, whatever. So have you noticed that the dodgier the submission is, the more you oversell it in the print portion of the entry?"
"...So what's your point?"

Al: Straight outta 1990

I love the inner battle you have within yourself late at night, true genius I say!

Also, I posted another comment/question on the Start the Clock song; not sure how often you check the old ones...

You know, it's a fine line between true genius and the demented ramblings of an insane mind. Glad you can tell the difference.

I'll check the older entries...

Reminds me of "Neutron Dance" by the Pointer Sisters or "The Heat is On" by Glenn Frey.

Like you said...EIGHTIES, baby.
