If You're Feeling Sinister

If you're a Secret Squirrel type you now have the option to send me covert stuff now using my public key, which I finally remembered to post on the site. Ooh, stealthy.

My band career ended late in my senior year when John Cooper and I threw my
amplifier out the dormitory window. We did not act in haste. First we
checked to make sure the amplifier would fit through the frame, using the
belt from my bathrobe to measure, then we picked up the amplifier and backed
up to my bedroom door. Then we rushed forward, shouting “The WHO! The
WHO!” and we launched my amplifier perfectly, as though we had been doing it
all our lives, clean through the window and down onto the sidewalk, where a
small but appreciative crowd had gathered. I would like to be able to say
that this was a symbolic act, an effort on my part to break cleanly away
from one state in my life and move on to another, but the truth is, Cooper
and I really just wanted to find out what it would sound like. It sounded
OK.
