Can you explain to me how to see the goat ?
*LOL* "Yes Leo, explain to me what your clearly deluded and crazy eyes see..." hehe Ok here is the official Leo guide on "how you see the goat"

This works best at a distance, not too close up otherwise you clearly see its not a goat. So from a distance you can see the overall shape is that of a goat head with a hanging long ear *lol* (I am actually laughing at myself as I am writing this...). You can even see the goat mouth and small nose above the mouth and the faint line of an eye even. It looks like a very serious goat, not unfriendly, just serious, pondering as it were. *lol* OK I cant write anymore...I am laughing too much at how silly this sounds, but I swear I´ve always seen THE goat :) Blame it on a rush of blood to Leo´s head :p


I don't wanna be corrupted and see a goat every time I look at AROBTTH
Now you know how I feel whenever I look at that cover. It spoils the whole album for me every time but I just cant stop seeing it hehe

I really tried hard to see the goat, but I can't. Can you describe where the individual points are situated (liek mouth, nose etc.) ? :D

*LOOOL* So funny....ok I´ll try. The goat is best seen with a small pic of the cover, mind you..so keep it at a distance. The long ear is well the long ear under the goaty chin. The mouth is the same as the human mouth, the nose just above it and the oblong black spot on the top is the eye.

I cant believe I managed to write that with somewhat a straight face haha

Nothing in the world can spoil this album for me ! :)
I love the album but I cant listen to it much anymore. Its too depressing for me, most of the tracks remind me of years and years of sad memories, about something beautiful, but still sad.

Oh, sorry to hear that. Yes, memories and music become linked so easily and when the memories are bad, the music becomes tainted.

Although, you know what helps ? Listening to a piece over and over again. At first it will be hard. But gradually when you've listened to it again and again and again the original emotional connections begin to fade and it becomes more neutral again. Trust me, I've experienced that.

That sounds more like a recipe to ruin a song forever to me haha I trust you, but I think I´ll wait a couple more years where I hope those memories won't hurt anymore, then maybe the songs, most probably actually, will take on a more positive meaning and Ill be able to listen to them again. Incidentally I want a few from that album at my wedding, including Green Eyes, so I´d better be ok with them by then! hehe :)
