(Life Is) Salty

Time to let the Professor pick the theme.

I, Professor Whimsey, henceforth and without further skiddoo decree this week to be "Weird Jazz Week" here in the Cacophonous World.

Here is a track from Victor's "Robot Love" CD, written and recorded in the summer of 2000. Much has been said about this track, that Victor wrote the first two lines in Salzburg, Austria, and then the rest three years later in Michigan; that the psychotic spoken word part in the bridge was not written by Victor at all, but was spoken aloud by one of his former co-workers and friends and transcribed by another former co-worker and friend. Much has been written, it's true, and so it is hard to seperate legend from fact. In that spirit, here is the song.
