Thanks MZ! I was happy with most of the take, tho the snare tuning could have been tightened up.

That all sounds entirely sane to me. The idea of being remembered was once on my radar - I was very influenced by Mum, who was acutely conscious of her legacy.

Futurama had an episode where they visited the edge of the universe and they saw themselves in the universe next to theirs looking back, waving. Bender was angry because the other Bender was wearing a cowboy hat :)
