Okay, so, I am in STITCHES at that video. I am simply dying with laughter.... I guess John Maus and I share a similar horror of centipedes. The way he delivered that story was just so fucking hilarious, especially the part about being made to feel "DOUBLE crazy."

So the dude that shot this, did so in 2008? I'm assuming that's when John Maus was teaching/working towards his PhD in Hawaii? So, does that mean some of his STUDENTS went to that show? I can't even begin to imagine what they thought of it. All I know is, if I had had a prof in college who was even remotely like John Maus, jumping around to insanely catchy pop songs, I would NEVER miss a class.

Also, philosophy students are really into talking about being in a "state of becoming," aren't they.... I nearly failed the ONE Philosophy class I took in college, and I think it was because the prof was Greek and I couldn't understand a word he was saying, due to his really thick accent. Also odd: I went to Bennington.

Hey, hey, it's my second post! Thanks all, I wish there were more people talking on this forum.

Totally agree with pelléas et mélisande on the centipede story. Really great delivery, I had to watch it a few times. I also like the "this is how it happened" style of the video. I hope John Maus writes all kinds of weird books when he's 58, long after the truth of pop has gone out of style.

The centipede: menacing, boiled infant spine. I'd rather not experiment with the centipede, rather step on him flat and be out of my misery. They are so quick and nervous. Like landlocked seaweed on speed.
I frequently have nightmares of bugs, as i often think of the insect-to-human ratio. Bugs are necessary, so it's natural to want to get rid of em. I respect and fear my distant relatives. HKs Hunter/Killers

My most hated bug. All those legs...

And apparently in prehistoric times there were centipedes up to 6 ft long. That's truly frightening.

I'm in New England, USA, and it's been unseasonably WARM for March this past week... even reaching the 80+ degree mark. A MOST unpleasant side-effect of this has been the sudden re-emergence of bugs all hatching and springing forth and coming out of their ancient slumbers at the SAME TIME. What awoketh and issued forth from within the dark crevices of my apartment? THE CENTIPEDE. *shiver* I thought of John Maus. Then I killed it.

The ONLY potential positive about a centipede is that if you have them in your house (and I do), they prey on spiders.

possiblegrenade: 6 foot long centipedes just makes the irrationality of the prehistoric times all the more horrifying.... ug!!!!

AppTrans: "menacing boiled infant spine" is the most perfect, poetic description I've ever read of a centipede, ever.
