You are absolutely right, it is funny.

Could you imagine if any other social activity were as annotated?

What would an album sound like?  What would sex be like?  What would a
meal be like?  What would performance art be like?

It's a rough process, I think, operating in a sphere where every
promiscuous meandering--from the wayward glance to the illegitimate
offspring--is supposed to be accounted for before you can even begin
to start shacking up with another idea.  I suppose the irony is that
for all this scrupulous accounting, we cannot even begin to provide a
bibliography for the most basic sorts of knowledge that all these
lofty propositions are perched on.

As far as making it into a rock opera....  I think I'd want Bruce
Dickinson or Rob Halford to play a part in this madness.
