"I imagine myself in the future surrounded by files and digging through Xeroxed papers or information in foreign languages," Jones says. "Hopefully, I will have a sustained career."

"I would like to get a Ph.D.," Jones adds. "Otherwise, there is a gas station on every corner. Maybe a gas station doesn't pay very well, but if I keep my costs low, I could have a pretty OK life."

Hoping for a pretty OK life may be as optimistic as Jones can get. But his pragmatic approach, like his music, is pretty damn refreshing. Too bad the good vibes don't often last very long. Live long and prosper be damned.

"I am just this real asshole," Jones says. "I continue and probably will continue to be an asshole. It's part of my reality. I can't deal with people. I don't like fun. I don't really hang out."

New Science Projects was my favorite band to see when I lived in Denton. Just some good music and entertaining showmanship. I keep crossing my fingers for a show in Dallas soon. I think in the right venue, with the appropriate lineup, they could pack a room in Dallas.
