That was one "burly" podcast. The use of the word "random" reminds me of some terminology used by a certain "renegade" in years past. So was Devo still "awesome" after all these years?

Hah. Interesting little digression into being in The Zone while programming. I tend to do that with all kinds of work: programming, CAD work, illustration etc, and do my best work after hours. It feels like there's a section of my brain that normaly provides a constant background hum of neural feedback and self-analysis that helps me deal with the world around me that I shut off when doing that kind of work. Often music helps "distract" it, but other times I can lock it out with just determined focus. But I find I'm really agitated when I'm broken out of that state and tend, in retrospect, to be immediately rude and inarticulate. I've had to apologize to my wife a couple times for pulling a "WHAT." when she taps my shoulder and explain what was going on inside my head. It makes me wonder about the semi-autistic tendencies of people that do well with very detailed focused work. I wonder if we learn to selectively ignore the part of our brains that isn't developed in the autistic.
