White Walls and "Aliens" by Bruce McCulloch

We seldom take pictures against a white wall. There is something isolating, even lonely about this space.

Speaking of loneliness, Chris played a comedy/music CD for me yesterday, by one of his favourite comedic talents: Bruce McCulloch. Bruce's album "Drunk Baby Project" has a song called "Aliens" which really hit me on so many levels, I burst out laughing, and it broke my heart a little bit, and so I wanted to share the lyrics with you guys.
When the aliens came down to Earth, they immediately understood everything: how motors worked, how matter grew and eroded, the death of the veranda. 
The only thing that puzzled them that day and night was: why is there laugh tracks on TV? It didn't compute.
The only other thing the aliens didn't understand is: why are there so many lonely people? Why didn't they simply pair up, merely get together?
The aliens said they could understand one lonely person, like at a dance, arms folded, toe tapping, wanting to dance but staring bravely at the rest, saying "Oh, I'm fine. You guys go have weddings and birthdays and warm baths to cuddle. I'm okay standing."
The aliens were almost deafened by the sound of the pages being turned in the books read by the lonely.
The aliens were almost murdered by the thought of those waking up to just a clock radio.
"Why don't they just get together?" asked the aliens. I didn't know how to explain it to them.
"Don't tell anyone we were here," they said. 
Who do I have to tell?
After they left, I solved the mystery. The laugh track is for me. The laugh track is for us. 
The laugh track is there to remind us that we are not alone.

I don't know why so many of us are lonely. We should all just pair up and love each other and be done with this already. Make it happen kids.

Thanks for stopping by....and not me feel lonely. :)
