What in God's Name do I know about California?

I've been listening to Rush Hour by Jane Wiedlin over and over again. The song makes me feel horribly melancholy. Beyond melancholy. That kind of feeling in the chest that gets you smelling spring time again in the dead of winter.

What do I know about California and Jane Wiedlin? The song is like an example of complete discarnate malaise. I don't know where the connection to this song comes from. I have the vinyl LP and single and used to listen to it repeatedly in my bedroom while my best friend had gone off to University and I was still in community college.

I'm not even sure that Jane Wiedlin has anything to do with California. I've been to California and it reminded me of the first day of Michigan spring but in an affluent way. The smell of sun and money rather than sun and Amway.

I feel such disconnect at this moment. I think Rush Hour may be a key of some sort. How many times does it need to play before it opens up a door to an Endless Summer [not to be confused with the surf movie]?

I played it four times in a row while writing this post and the door has not opened yet. When it does I'm sure it will be something like my earlier post with the rudimentary 3D CGI.

Something's coming over me
I'm so dizzy I can't see
Can't make out the forest for the trees

My heart is beating faster now
As the traffic's slowing down
And suddenly I'm all alone with you

It's so good
Baby when you're at the wheel
I can't believe the way I feel
It's such a rush
Just being with you

chorus
We're Driving in the Rush Hour
(ooh you send me)
You take me to the Rush Hour
(ooh you send me)
You got me in the Rush Hour

Feel it getting hot in here
Feel me getting close to you dear
Slow motion moving you, moving me

Now your lips are touching mine
And in your eyes that certain shine
Honey, I know just where you're taking me

It's so good
Baby when you're at the wheel
I can't believe the way I feel
It's such a rush
Just being with you

chorus
chorus continues until fade out

It really is so good baby when you're at the wheel!

What People Are Saying About the Plaza of the Mind



...[Plaza of the Mind] impressed me in its magnificent weirdness...this sorta je ne sais quoi that you find in interesting art... ...I mean that purely as a compliment!

Stefene Russell

Plaza of the Mind is a clinamen away from the holeopathic replay by the Android Meme of the old perceptual agon of electrically-programmed youth confronting the Gutenbergian Establishment. Irresistible Force meets Immovable Object.
