Impossible! It just can’t be! Have you lost touch with reality? I know. It sounds like my last IRS audit. Or maybe Wolf Blitzer’s performance review. Nope. These are things people have been saying about Turntable For One for years. And this week, they were right. I paid tribute to all the things and ways people embrace, admire, and seek Unreality. Is the last song Reality or Unreality? I think that’s going to depend very much on what we all do in the near future.
