More meta-notes

-out-of-nowhere Siouxsie reference; Kaleidoscope as relic of youthful rebellion; what was the logic behind choosing Siouxsie? Was this a carryover from the book, or did somebody throw a dart at a board with her and, like, X, Bauhaus, Birthday Party, Nina Hagen and Lene Lovich tacked to it?

-Speaking of Philip Glass, Muse's "Take a Bow" is so chock full of frantic arpeggios it's hard to believe he wasn't involved. The symphonic arrangement lags not far behind in terms of raw Glassiness (Pants, thanks for the tip!).
