In memory of Rainer B. (The Baron) on the anniversary of his journey to the celestial Human Highway.

German physicist, administrator of Human Highway and Bad News Beat, dreamer, music aficionado, devoted Bayern futbol fan, quirky nerd with brilliant sense of humor, fierce friend and the perfect stranger, like a cross of himself and a fox.
If you haven’t checked out Neil Young’s video “My Pledge,” do it now.
Rolling Stone writes: “The clip opens on a pile of old letters and notices that are cleared to make room for a piece of lined paper that begins to fill with Young’s words, which he both speaks and sings with thick Auto-Tune throughout ‘My Pledge.’
The initial letter is folded into a paper boat and sent across a sea of stamps, after which Young’s vivid lyrics and the images and people they evoke – including Jimi Hendrix, John F. Kennedy and Florence Nightingale – appear on an array of postcards.”
“But me I’m not stopping there,
Got my own row left to hoe
Just another line in the field of time
When the thrashers comes, I’ll be stuck in the sun
Like the dinosaurs in shrines
But I’ll know the time has come
To give what’s mine.” by -- Neil Young, ThrasherThrasher lyrics
