“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

It's 1989 Anthem Time

All right. After all that, it's about time we had a little bit of Lisa Stansfield. The original anthem, I feel. At least that's how it seemed at Shoom and Land of Oz, last time I checked--which was in 1989...

Where's my Land of Oz ID card? Somewhere still on me I think...or in me...This was where I first heard what then became the Orb as they were spinning Sueno Latino and ambient sounds in the VIP lounge. And Aphex Twin. Spinning bits of sandpaper, in the little booth downstairs from that. Not the main room though. This was there. Some kind of laser tunnel was involved.

One now has the unfortunately too late impulse to take Robin Williams to Land of Oz. Shoot, should've thought of that at the time.
