One beetlebrowed man looks up, slowly, disinterestedly, sipping his yak-butter tea almost insultingly.

Is he recording as himself, or his sexy female incarnation which he is planning on becoming in his next life?

So there's hope for my album when I'm 85.   Rants from "Get Off My Lawn" -- "Hey Cloud" -- "Making a list for the farmers market"

Yeah, but the lyrics are kinda repetitive.  All he says is:  Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-lagunga

I'm more a fan of the classic, early '90s religious leaders' albums.  That was back before everything was overly remastered in the studio, when you could really FEEL the prayers, you know?

One I learned as a youngster, carries a lot of meaning when you process it repetitively:

That's ... actually one of the more accurate descriptions of a llama I've heard in some time.

Beware the humming llama.

The Chinese Communist Party has seen to it that there will be no Dalai Lama in the future

A llama is a lite camel, it burns faster but just as satisfying

IIRC the DL has already predicted his next incarnation may be outside Tibet and beyond the control of China.

Which means when he dies we get to witness Buddhist/Communist reincarnation civil war cage match. Which toddler will levitate triumphant?
