Caption: The strongest word is still the word 'free'.
Caption: Next to the word 'free', the best word is 'new'.
Caption: At your seven-eleven, Freedom's waiting For you.
Caption: For your kind of morning, our kind of freedom.
Caption: Other testy words are: 'Mistakes', 'Stop', 'At last', and 'Don't'.

The author writes:

I was inspired by manyhills' comment about the number of strips that he's made that comment on music to try my hand at making one of my own. My taste of music, however, is a bit... different. For example, Freedom's Waiting is probably one of the more accessible works by a band I'm rather taken with called Negativland (be thankful I didn't go for something like "I believe it's L").

It strikes me that the sampling that Negativland is doing is quite similar in many regards to what we're doing with the Square Root of Minus Garfield.
