"), and a bunch of flutes offering scurrying responses that trip over one another. The tide keeps rising (albeit MUCH more slowly), and the original uber-eroded castle tower keeps hanging on, defying logic and pixel-gravity...
The strings are the comic, the trumpet is our search for meaning, and the flutes are the wondrous (Ives would say silly, but I disagree) cacophony of our attempts to understand. v=tb Ar UJBRRJ0There are a couple of songs related to Time around this thread, and I suddenly remembered this: And now the choir will lead us in the hymn O Lord, please don't burn us, Don't grill us or toast your flock, Don't put us on a barbecue, Or simmer us in stock, Don't braise us or bake or boil us, Or stir-fry us in a wok. So of course, this is the Time for another song reference, just to add more work for our mixoligist!
But that wouldn't have any significant connection with "Time" that I can think of, except perhaps in the sense of "doing time." So I wouldn't expect that to be it.

I have been watching this since the first or second image... Perhaps with a moral somewhat similar to Simon & Garfunkel's "I Am A Rock".
It was one of the first things I thought of when I saw the alt-text, and as Time has elapsed and this thread has passed through various stages of absurd, morbid, off-topic, lighthearted, and so forth, I feel like Randall has constructed a piece of performance art with all of us included as integral players.... Cause tomorrow's just another day, and I don't believe in time. Sandcastles in the sand (Sandcastles in the sand)Thought I could fly when you held my hand (Thought I could fly)Eternity turns to black and white It was the greatest week and a half of my life Somebody was talking about songs about 30 newpix ago.I'm playing timpani, and I have a lot of tuning changes in the piece. Time isn't holding us, time isn't after us Time isn't holding us, time doesn't hold you back Time isn't holding us, time isn't after us Time isn't holding us...When this happens, I write a note at the top of the page showing which drum is tuned to whcih note, so I can keep track.
