Reasoning with Madness
"This is a barbaric yawp, and it will be sounded over the roofs of the world."
Yesterday I spoke to Travis Walton on the phone.
If that name isn't familiar to you, look up the movie "Fire in the Sky". It was about Travis and his shocking encounter of being abducted by aliens. To this day, his is one of the few experiences that is considered one of the legitimate encounters with an alien species. He and his friends have told the story the same way for decades, passing all lie detector tests and going on to many interviews in many media outlets to discuss what happened. If you google Travis Walton, you will be floored.
And if you're curious why I talked to him, its because my old band We Have Guns wrote a song about him called "The Tale of Travis Walton" which I wrote the lyrics to and sang. It was a fan favorite thanks to the wild odd-timed Primus-like bass line from James Smith and the invasion-like power chorus that Tobby Lugo whipped into it.
Apparently Travis' girlfriend found it and they loved the song! So we reached out to send a copy of the album to them. Issa Koberstein talked to him first on Friday night, then I talked to him last night. Soon, we will set up a conference call with him and the whole band. This is one of the most amazing things that has ever come my way and I look forward to more correspondence with Travis in the future.
Who Am I?
I am Ahab.
