Zero Day-Painstakingly Concealed Secret Track-FUZ Highscore

Last night was the closing of the Belmont Burlesque Revue's (nearly) eight-year open run. Erica and I did one of our Gerdes & Reid bits, to general acclaim, and there was lots of hugging and crying and drinking during and after the show, so we weren't home until 3 am or so. So of course I was up at 7:30 and just couldn't get back to sleep. And we've got visitors in the guest room, so I couldn't play a video game or anything. So how to occupy myself?

Well, like anyone would, I dug in and decoded the Painstakingly Concealed Secret Track on MC Frontalot's Zero Day album. I'm number 205 to do so, according to the high scores board (screen shot above). And it's odd how proud I am of the minor geek skills I used in the process. And also proud of my range—hanging out with ladies what take their clothes off to just a few hours later solving super nerdy puzzles.

I won't say much more, because there are already plenty of hints in a thread on the Frontalot forums. Though in the spirit of the hints there, I'll say that when the thing finally started doing the thing, at first I thought it was a glitch and I just needed to have some patience. Maddeningly vague enough? Good.
