Shock the Alien Monkey

The aging process happens to all of us. Sometimes I barely recognize myself when I look in the mirror. I realize that I'm getting older. And I guess I've come to accept the many changes that come with it.

But it's not that easy for me to accept those changes in someone else.

This is how I remember Peter Gabriel.

And this is what he looks like today.

I guess I should be glad I'm not the only one traveling down this rugged road we call Time.

I have always wondered if Peter Gabriel was originally an alien who then was replaced by a human right about the time he left Genesis. I mean, you can't beat songs like "Here Comes the Flood" and "Solsbury Hill" and all of PG's solo stuff...but once he stopped wearing the bubbleman suit in front of Tony and Steve and Phil and Mike...well, he just seemed too...um...normal. A brilliant sort of normal, yes. But less foreign. Could this be an example of what Invasion of the Body Snatchers would look like if viewed backward?

First, Ha! You made me laugh!

Second, I see your point. But I thought it was like the "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" when I saw him on TV tonight. I recognized the voice, but the body was just all wrong.

Glad to hear I haven't upset any die-hard PG fans. At least, not yet.

But you gotta give the guy some points. A bubbleman suit. I give him five Alien stars.

It's just that haircut you wrote about a while back, is all. ;-)

Again I say, Ha!

I didn't realize blog readers would connect the dots between my posts, but apparently they do. That's what I get for feeling so invisible!

It only takes one bad haircut to turn your world inside out. That's when I just remind myself that I'm really invisible, at least most of the time, and I try not to think about my BIG FUNNY head.

By the way, RLM, great posts on the Christian Hero over at your blog. Some day I'm going to get caught up and I'll get to play (or surf the Net) more often.
