Mars aint the kind of place to raise your kids -

Like a silent breath
holding for a first step,
Mars waits.

The name is an idea
of green men in saucers,
but reality is red dust
and far.

So far only the mind's eye can see
the soft, floating vistas,
excavations of canals,
and the creatures
who might dwell in them.

or if you have too much time on your hands, you can watch all the you tube videos with blurry indistinct images of distant rocks that are supposedly cities/statues/aliens etc lol

"In fact its cold as hell"

saw EJ in the 80s play this track, it went of for 20 minutes, about 15 minutes longer than it should have lol.

I guess one of the joys of being mega famous is that you have a captive audience to do whatever the hell you like in front of. One of the pitfalls, I imagine, would be that not many people will tell you when it's time to stop?

EJ's blood stream was quite 'polluted' in the 80s from what I have heard lol,
I suspect that even if someone had told him to stop, he would have ignored it.

Have you ever listened to his first record?, it was a self titled album, best record
he ever made imo
