"The song came about after I got caught up in a Facebook argument about whether or not it's appropriate to say hello to people you pass on the street. The argument was much more complicated but I just imagined a world in which nobody said anything to anyone on the streets, and for some reason the famous Austin mural "Hi, How Are You" by Daniel Johnston popped into my head. I took some liberties with my martian however, giving it purple skin and very long arms" - Tom

Here's a happy little tale of modern dread.

The cartoon, "Alice's Wonderland," was made in 1923 by Walt Disney, and stars four-year-old Virginia Davis (90 at her death in 2009). In Lewis Carol's Alice in Wonderland, the rabbit hole leads to trippy, funny, then scary places. For me, this is how it feels to be living in the days of the Mueller investigation, rogue gene editing, accelerating AI, mounting storms and climate denial. Where goes the rabbit hole? I don't know. Enjoy!
We spent the weekend with Austin locals, Freedonia. (Scott Laningham, James Fenner, John Fremgen, Sean Giddings, Christopher Cross, Russell Haight, Seth Carper, Justin Vasquez, Randy Miller)
