hmmm . . . I just can't be bothered.
I hope I realise I don't exist before I apparently die.

This is another of your more interesting landscapes. I don't think I like the title for it. (What?) It reminds me of ABBA.

The "Xanadu" in my muddled mind is from S T Coleridge's chemically induced poem Kubla Khan . In Xanadu did Kubla Khan, etc. And Kubla Khan is a slang term for a joint.

The ABBA (how does one do a backward upper-case B?) reference flew straight over my lonesome brain cell like a ram-jetted flying carpet (unless it's the blondness of the scene).

This is what I thought: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xanadu_(Citizen_Kane)

hmmm . . . if I replace the happy grass with roses I'll certainly consider "Rosebud".

Could be a song by the Canadian rock group Rush also. The swiss singing group cane to mind because one of the wackier residents listens to ABBA, nothing else.

It is. There are a lot of mentally ill people where I work. I sometimes wonder if I am also.

Dave?  Dave's not here!  Seriously though - nice looking displacements.  Keep on working with that, John.

Take a look at his Flickr posts. John has been doing great work with image maps for some time.
