I am so totally, like, FREAKED OUT, man

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.)
