Post-Halloween Ghost Story...Haunted Music
Recently I purchased Pink Floyd's double album "Ummagumma." I think Stan played the live disc for me 20 years ago...my early foreshadowing introduction that would be put aside for two decades. It's weird how these memories come back to you...I now remember being startled by the scream in the middle of "Be Careful with that Axe, Eugene," just as I was startled by the line "I will drug you and fuck you on the permafrost" from Magazine's song "Permafrost," another album Stan played for me back then as I wondered what he *really* had in store for me.
Over a week ago or so, we listened to the studio disc from "Ummagumma" as we were going to sleep--I like the sensation of music when I'm sleepy/sleeping/dozing. This album is unlike anything else...very strange. After the CD ended and our CD player was turned off, I swore I still heard music playing, especially as if the last track, a percussion-based piece, kept continuing. I told Stan about it the next day and he said since it was very strange music, it probably had some sort of lasting effect on my mind as I slept. I chalked it up to dreaming or hallucination. Last night, we played that CD again, and the same exact thing happened. This time, I was awake as was Stan, and he heard the same exact thing. It was like a rumbling, but it wasn't a car or a plane outside. I don't know what the heck it was, it was unlike any "outside" noise I've heard before. And it was as if it was coming from the CD player. I puzzled over how a CD player or CD or a piece of music could be haunted. Stan suggested that those things weren't themselves haunted, but that our house is, and playing that particular CD triggers the haunting entity in the house.
Whatever haunt your house, I hope it's something friendly.

Hey, if it awakens to Pink Floyd, it's got to be pretty cool. BTW, Nico, didn't you once say you liked Pink Floyd, or am I mistaken? (not that I'm implying you're haunting my house! LOL!)
It's been over 12 years, nothing bad's happened to the house, so I assume it's a friendly entity. It might be the former owner who died in a car accident less than a mile away shortly after we bought the house. Although she didn't really seem like much of a psychedellic music fan, however.
