OT, Jay. Reading the description for Mainspring and the plotline of the world being run down reminds me a bit, thematically, of the Ted Chiang story "Seventy Two letters", where Kabbalistic science discovers that the human race might be doomed to extinction because of the particulars of genetics in that alternate world.

With the morning I'm having, it's not healthy to provoke me.

For your consideration - "No good popular/rock song involving the spelling of a word has ever been made."

"How do you spell love? M-O-N-E-Y!"

"R-O-C-K in the USA"

Well, seriously, Nick Cave's "Loverman."

Kashmir's okay, but Stairway to Heaven was better live (but then so were Whole lotta love, Black Dog, Rock'n'Roll, Immigrant Song and various others 'cos they hadn't written Kashmir when I saw them.)

I'm minded of an Ian Anderson song. Too old to rock, too young to die.
