"THE SURVIVORS HAVE FLED THE COUNTRY" APPEARS ON THE COVER OF THIS NEW NOVAK RELEASE.

WHO ARE THE SURVIVORS? WHAT COUNTRY? WHY? HOW? WHEN? WHEN WILL THEY COME BACK? WILL THEY BRING ANYONE ELSE? WHERE ARE THEY NOW? WHO'S NOVAK? HOW DID NOVAK DO THIS PIECE? WHOSE VOICES ARE THOSE ON THE FIRST CUT? WHOSE CHILDREN DID NOVAK GET FOR THOSE CHILD-LIKE SOUNDS? WHOSE VOICE IS THAT LATER--THE SLOWED DOWN ONE WITH THE HEAVY BREATHING? WHAT'S HE/SHE SAYING? WHO'S PLAYING GUITAR ON THE SECOND CUT? WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO ROBERT GONSALVES? WASN'T HE NOVAK'S TECHNICIAN? IS HE A SURVIVOR? WHO'S PLAYING DRUMS? WHY ARE THERE TIMPANI INSTEAD OF A TRAP SET? IS THAT NOVAK SINGING ON THE SECOND CUT? WHY IS THE ONLY AUDIBLE SPEECH PATTERN ON EITHER CUT APPEAR ON THE SECOND ONE AND WHY IS IT "KEEP THE BABIES"?

WHO RECORDED THIS? WHY DID THEY COMPRESS IT SO? WAS IT DONE ON THE 12 TRACK AT MILLS? DID THEY USE THE 'GAIN BRAIN'? WHAT IS COMPRESSION? WHAT'S A 'GAIN BRAIN'? WHERE IS MILLS AT? WHO WAS THE ENGINEER? WHO DID THE MASTERING? DID THEY USE A PET COMPUTER? WHO'S THE DISTRIBUTOR? HOW COME THEY DIDN'T USE A RADIO SHACK TRS-80? ARE THEY THEIR SURVIVORS? WHAT DOES 80 REFER TO? ISN'T A z-ac AN IMPORTED SPORTS CAR? DOES NOVAK HAVE A SPORTS CAR? IS THIS HOW THE SURVIVORS GET FROM PLACE TO PLACE? WHO WROTE THE SOFTWARE? IS HE A SURVIVOR? IS NOVAK A SURVIVOR?

WHAT ABOUT MEGAN ROBERTS? DIDN'T SHE LIVE IN UKIAH WHEN SHE WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL? DIDN'T SHE USE TO SING VOCALS FOR NOVAK? DIDN'T SHE CO-WRITE 'OH FARRAH' WITH NOVAK? IS THERE ANY TRUTH TO THE RUMOR THAT MEGAN KNEW REV. JIM JONES IN UKIAH AT THAT TIME? WHERE IS MEGAN NOW? IS SHE A SURVIVOR? DIDN'T SHE STUDY MUSIC WITH DAVID BEHRMAN? DIDN'T NOVAK AS WELL? WAS DAVID BEHRMAN SENT TO NEW YORK? WERE THERE ANY NEW YORKERS IN THE PEOPLE'S TEMPLE? IS DAVID A SURVIVOR? WOULD BOB DAVIS PRINT THIS? WILL THIS GET PUBLISHED? WILL I BE LABELED 'A PRIMA DONNA ARTIST WHO TURNS ORDINARY REPORTING ASSIGNMENTS INTO SELF-INDULGENT ACTS'? WILL THIS BE AIRED ON TV? WILL BOB ASHLEY SEE IT? WILL THE READERS OF EAR MAGAZINE THINK THAT I CAN'T TAKE ANYTHING SERIOUSLY? WILL MY FRIENDS THINK I'M TAKING MYSELF TOO SERIOUSLY FOR ASKING THE PREVIOUS QUESTION? WILL I CARE? DID JOHN CAGE RECEIVE A FREE DEMO COPY OF THIS NEW NOVAK RELEASE? DOES JOHN CAGE RECEIVE EAR? DOES EAR RECEIVE JOHN CAGE? DID JOHN CAGE PLAY 'THE I CHING' FOR NOVAK? IS HE A SURVIVOR? WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BOB DAVIS? WHAT WOULD MY MOTHER SAY? IS SHE A SURVIVOR? WILL SHE CONTINUE TO EDIT AND PUBLISH HER OWN BI-WEEKLY NEWSLETTER THAT IS CONCERNED WITH THE LEGAL PROBLEMS OF HOME OWNERS IN A SMALL MID-WEST SUBURB? DO YOU THINK THAT SHE WOULD LIKE TO SEE RICH GOLD/, PERFORM 'GEORGEO OF THE SUBURBS? DO YOU THINK THAT SHE WOULD HAVE A USE FOR BOB DAVIS IN THEIR BI-WEEKLY NEWSLETTER? DO YOU THINK BOB DAVIS WOULD STILL LIKE TO BE EMPLOYED BY A PUBLICATION? WHAT WOULD MY GRANDFATHER SAY? DIDN'T NOVAK AND ROBIN WILLIAMS USE TO DATE THE SAME WOMAN? WAS MY GRANDFATHER REALLY F.D.R.? IS THAT ROBIN WILLIAMS ON THE COVER OF NOVAK'S NEW RELEASE? IS THAT NOVAK WITH ROBIN WILLIAMS IN 'THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER'? IS ROBIN WILLIAMS A SURVIVOR? IS MY GRANDFATHER A SURVIVOR?

WHY DIDN'T I BECOME A REPORTER LIKE MY MOM AND MY GRANDFATHER? DID JIM HORTON MEET JIM JONES? WHY DID I CHOOSE MUSIC? WHY DON'T I GO BACK TO MAKING 16MM FILMS AND CALL THEM SINEMASONICS? DOES ANY ONE OUT THERE HAVE ANY CLOSE TIES WITH THE AMERICAN FILM INSTITUTE? WHY DOESN'T JIM HORTON HAVE A PHONE? WHY DID TERRY DELSING NOT HAVE A PHONE FOR CLOSE TO TWO YEARS? CAN YOU TELL THE DIFFERENCE? DID I STEAL THAT LINE FROM FAST FORWARD? WHO'S FAST FORWARD/ CAN U TELL THE DIFFERENCE? WOULD BOB ASHLEY ADD A 'WELL SAID" HERE? WHO'S BOB ASHLEY? WHO ARE YOU? CAN YOU THINK OF SOMETHING? MAYBE YOU QUALIFY FOR ED TANNENBAUM'S FAMOUS CONCEPTUAL ARTISTS SCHOOLS? DO YOU THINK MANY RECENT GRADUATES ARE ALREADY THINKING ON THEIR OWN? DID YOU KNOW THAT JOHN WATKINS HELPED ME GET THIS OUT OF MY COMPUTER AND ONTO HARD COPY? DO YOU THINK THAT THIS IS THE SORT OF THING THAT JOHN WANTS TO GET AROUND? WILL JIM HORTON EDIT THIS BEFORE HE LETS DAVID DOTY SEE IT? DO YOU THINK THAT THIS OFFERS DAVID DOTY A CHALLENGE AS AN EDITOR? WHY DIDN'T I BECOME AN EDITOR?
