KV: Up on Tralfamadore

Kurt Vonnegut: A real big deal to me for a long time (even now). I learned how to deal with death after reading his book Timequake. So, if you haven't read it, go do it. As with most of his work it's pretty nutty, but he talks a lot about the passing of his first wife. It was his ability to mix really poignant subject matter with absolute absurdity that drew me to his work. I've always functioned along those same lines, and it's nice to see it in written form.

Here's a song for Kurt called "
Excessive Exposure" something I'm sure he'd feel a victim of today. Well, him and Imus. (Who kinda look alike, no?)

The Lapse - Excessive Exposure

Take care, Kurt.
