The Muzak speaker is in the hallway just outside my office. All day long, Muzak, Muzak, Muzak. Lately they seem to be fixated on Fall on Me by REM and Aqualung by Jethro Tull. What is the message behind that? I don't know. Muzak is evil. Wicked evil people at Muzak. Dulling my senses. Sucking the marrow from my bones. Draining my will to live. Life is useless. The horrors of the daily news combined with the boredom of my job punctuated by bouts of extreme tension; all set to the accompanyment of Check it Out by John Cougar Mellencamp.
