Keep it simple, silly

The voice of sanity

It can be so easy to get caught up in life and what it all means, taking it seriously, believing the stories, and then someone like Gabby La La comes along and blows it all out of the water. Last night we saw this woman dressed like a parakeet, with a fluffy tiger in her bright green wig, playing children's piano a la Schroeder, sitar, theremin and ukulele, and singing about the silliest things. It just made so much sense.

Ah, the voice of sanity. I love how the voice of sanity laughs so gleefully in the face of insanity, how it says with a twinkle in its eye, “Oh, you're so silly, how could things possibly be so bad?” How it can say, “Sucks to be you” in the nicest possible way.

The voice of sanity speaks, and last night her name was Gabby La La.
