John,

Will you go to prom with my friend Midori?

If you still have doubts about answering yes or no, please view the following: http://midori.imagecow.com/gallery//hellyeah.jpg

umm, so back to the tea party....i was trying to visualize said event and i found that tea-time in the 5th dimension is actually quite easy to visualize, as long as you put your own frame of reference *inside* the teacup, and think of the tea as being around the cup instead of contained within. The hypersurface of the tea liquid will form a Lee group with n-fold symmetry, which makes the math work out much more nicely than in the fourth dimension, assuming that the cup can be described by a relation of the form P(x,y,z,w,t) = ax^2+ by^2 + cz^2 / w*t + d.

(sorry, i couldn't resist)

Wasn't that the name of one of superman's villains... possibly from another dimension???

If the record had the full on Thingmakers treatment, supersized, I'd probably buy it, even though my record playing capacity isn't quite optimal.

Not sure if I would buy a regular album on vinyl.

I try not to do that thing anymore where I have to have everything in every possible format even if it has the same music on it - although I might be persuaded to buy a vinyl release if the artwork is as good as WIPTF's.

CD artwork just cannot compare to those good old 12 inches worth of sleeve

That wasn't dumbass either. Here's the answer:
Mr Mxyzptlk
A Fifth Dimensional being that harasses Superman. Mr Mxyzptlk (pronounced mix-yez-pittle-ick) uses amazing scientific skills from the Fifth Dimension to do things on Earth that appear magical. He has appeared in Metropolis to challenge and harass Superman several times when an inter-dimensional interface is possible. He decides on a challenge and a condition for determining when he'll leave, and then Superman must try to succeed in out thinking him. When Mxyzptlk is out foxed and bound by his agreement to return to the 5th Dimension, everything that his magic changed is returned to normal.

Vinyl? Well I'd be down.

oh god no... I had to actually pick the right dimension?? I was around six years old, when I saw that on a cartoon. I guess the next 18 years just weren't that memorable?

vinyl, yes please, with a gatefold sleeve. I miss the side-one/side-two-ness of albums. programming your cd player to play the first half & second half of an album isn't the same.

I'd pay top dollar for a phonograph cylinder release.

Barring that, vinyl will do nicely.

Would Scooby & Shaggy be scared by a player piano that started up with "Blue Diamonds"?

Is anyone thinking about how expensive it would be to put together?

[is that a dumbass question? why aren't we asking more of those?]
