So, like, there's this song that nobody else has ever heard...OK, that's not true, but it's a lesser-known song from a band that most people haven't heard of, that only appeared on a compilation album from an independent label. (Though the collection is pretty decent. You can hear a 30-second sample of the song and pick up the CD for $0.01 here.

Anyway, the end of this song has a really bizarre sample of a woman speaking in a very bizarre accent - like Tina Turner in "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome" if she was doing infomercials for a Yugoslavian psychic hotline. I entered the quote in Google...(after I figured out what the hell it was)...and eventually tracked it down to Jane Roberts, a woman who (claimed) that she was periodically 'inhabited' by an "energy personality essence no longer focused in physical reality" known only as 'Seth'. YouTube had a couple videos of Roberts speaking, including clips of her as Seth.

And the whole thing would have been moderately amusing, except while I was playing one in the background, just listening to the audio, the section from the sample came on. I watched for a couple seconds, when Roberts leaned forward, and I was sitting behind her.

(I don't even remember this. But then again, 1974, and you know...there's only so much blow a three-year-old can handle before the periodic blackouts kick in.)

And here I thought we were pretty lucky having you grace -our- room party. Ms. Roberts is a whole other league!

Oh God... we had the Seth books all over our house. I'm very familiar with them. Creeeeepy. My real name is Seth, which always made it that much creepier, too

My mom was really into the whole pan-spiritual, generic new-agey thing. As a result, I grew up a good little skeptic :)

[And no, my mom insisted that my name had nothing to do with the books. She didn't even know about them until after I'd been born. I'm grateful for that.]
