flying through clouds of uncertainty on wings of existential dread
The logic chain as I recall it: Chatting with friends about the children’s opera I’m working on (one guess which one), and how disconcerting rehearsal was because the ‘Boy’ had not yet shaved off his beard. V: He could just cover it in makeup! Me: We are not Cesar Romero-ing this thing. V: ? Me: Batman 66? The Joker who covered his mustache in white makeup because he wouldn’t shave. V: Oh, I was thinking of George Romero. All: Bwahahahaha! Draw that thing! V: I’m spleeeeeendid.
And now I’m probably on a watch list somewhere.
