The worlds collide on the inside
I’ve been listening to Powerman 5000 for a few years now. Funny thing is I didn’t really start diggin’ in to the tracks Spider was throwin’ down until a couple years after I insulted him.
How many people become a fan of a band after they’ve met and insulted the lead singer?
What I didn't mention when I told that story was this.
Spider looks pretty much the same off stage as he does on stage. That takes a dedication to the fans. Knowing they will recognize you and instead of hiding by taking the costume off he lets the fans find him. I was impressed by his dedication to his chosen profession and the way lives his image.

When you begin to see the functions of everything it turns it all upside down for a bit and trying to make sense of it without your high self there to be your guide is the fastest way to an I love me coat.
When I took my journey, I hit that point myself.
Like many others for a short period of time I had developed a God complex.
I was having trouble assimilating the massive understanding of what existence is and the role of each of us in it.
I’m human, no doubt about that.
I did see God’s job and I’m way too lazy. I also saw the Devil’s job, again way too lazy.
I have run into more than a few people over the last few years who have some interesting views about who they are and why. I have had people claim to be the following:
The Supreme Being
At one point I thought I was being trained to be the new Devil.
