An Outside Perspective

So, while conversing on AIM, Sasank gave this pretty cool assessment of me that kinda sums up what I’m all about, so felt obliged to post it here.

thecleanmachine: lauren’s plan to be happy –> sleep well, workout in the AM, eat Thai, see Tool live, work at Apple, pay off credit debts, become a famous professor, buy a starbucks, ……………….

I am obsessed. I admit it.

I’ve seen this coming for awhile, but lately my affinity has grown to unimaginable lengths. It’s beyond simple appreciation. Deeper than mere fondness. It’s become an obsession.

Maynard James Keenan’s voice is becoming too much for me to handle. I cannot get enough of it, and every time I hear it, I am amazed and bewildered at the range, variation, and beauty of this man’s voice. What’s worse is that he sounds even BETTER live. I mean, it’s too much. I can’t handle it. He’s too good.
