Of course I'm crazy, but that doesn't mean I'm wrong."

- Robert Anton Wilson
(18 Jan 1932 - 11 Jan 2007)


Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   I'm sure it comes as no great shock to you that I love this song - AND the wonderful ink blot video, which is - well, sorta crazy!

BONUS - Crazy - Gnarls Barkley, 2006

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crazy_%28Gnarls_Barkley_song%29:

"Crazy" is the debut single by Gnarls Barkley, a musical collaboration between Danger Mouse and CeeLo Green, taken from their 2006 debut album St. Elsewhere. It peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, and topped the charts in the United Kingdom, Denmark, Canada, the Republic of Ireland, New Zealand and other countries.

The song was leaked in late 2005, months before its regular release, and consequently received massive airplay on BBC Radio 1 in the United Kingdom, most notably by radio DJ Zane Lowe, who also used the song in television commercials for his show.[1] When it was finally released in March 2006, it became the first single to top the UK Singles Chart on download sales alone. The song remained at the top of the British charts for nine weeks (which no other song had achieved in over ten years, and was only surpassed by Rihanna's "Umbrella" in July 2007) before the band and their record company decided to remove the single from music stores in the country so people would "remember the song fondly and not get sick of it."[2] In spite of this deletion, the song became best-selling single of 2006 in the UK.[3] Due to continued download sales, it reached a million sales in January 2011.

The song won a Grammy Award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance in 2007, and was also nominated for The Record of the Year in the United Kingdom, which it lost to "Patience" by Take That.[4] It was also nominated and further won a 2006 MTV Europe Music Award for Best Song. The song was also named the best song of 2006 by Rolling Stone[5] and by the Village Voice's annual Pazz & Jop critics poll.[6] The song was listed at #11 on Pitchfork Media's top 500 songs of the 2000s. The song is also in the #45 place in the list of the best songs ever of Acclaimed Music. In 2010, it was placed at #100 in the "updated" version of Rolling Stone's list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" and ranked at the top position of Rolling Stone's top 100 songs of the decade (2000–2009). "Crazy" was notably performed at the 2006 MTV Movie Awards, with the band members dressed as various Star Wars characters...[7][8]

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 03/08/15:

“... When we speak of those who are instruments in the hand of God, we are reminded that not all angels are from the other side of the veil. Some of them we walk with and talk with—here, now, every day. Some of them reside in our own neighborhoods.”

Gian Franco Reverberi (b. 1934) and
Gian Piero Reverberi (b. 29 July 1939)

Recorded by Gnarls Barkley, 2006


I remember when, I remember, I remember when I lost my mind,
There was something so pleasant about that place . (Or phase)
Even your emotions had an echo in so much space.

And when you're out there, without care,
Yeah, I was out of touch.
But it wasn't because I didn't know enough:
I just knew too much

Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Possibly (Or Probably)

And I hope that you are having the time of your life,
But think twice, that's my only advice.

Come on now who do you, who do you, who do you think you are,
Ha ha ha, bless your soul,

You really think you're in control!

Well,
I think you're crazy...
I think you're crazy...
I think you're crazy...
Just like me.

My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on a limb,
And all I remember is thinkin' I wanna be like them. hmhmhm

Ever since I was little, ever since I was little it looked like fun,
And it's no coincidence I've come, mmm
And I can die when I'm done.

But maybe I'm crazy?
Maybe you're crazy?
Maybe we're crazy?
Probably!
