A couple astute board biographers have asked why I rarely discuss Shecky #12 (aka Darth Shecky).  I can now reveal that said Shecky has synesthesia, a sort of "Simon Says" of the senses. 
 
You may well ask how does synesthesia play a role in said Shecky's life?  This is an excellent question, and I am told that for every number from 1 to 10,008, Darth Shecky visualizes various textures, shapes and gradations of color -- amber, green, gold and blue -- strangely particular to bottles of 25-year old scotch and other libidinous libations.  Merely by closing his eyes and squinting, the answer to Pi unscrolls before him like a pool-hall. 
 
Darth Shecky is a bit of an historian, if you will, and he is careful to point out that not every colorful shape and texture is beautiful.  While he is particularly partial to the number "333" for its chubby aspect, the associated shape, texture and color of "289" is (to quote the lad) "as consummately ugly and baleful as the Nixon Administration after the so-called 'Saturday Night Massacre'.

I'm not sure what this thread is about, but a certain part of this interests me. I see shapes, and usually color when I hear music usually. As for as visually it is a very very low opacity and is mostly mental, for these wierd shapes. Music for me moves in direction, and when I do listen to music I feel it traveling in motion. For example, when I was listening to my music on the bus this morning, a sound in the song sounded like orange oval bubbles that were oscilatting me in a circular motion. I don't hear or see anything when I see numbers though, so maybe I'm just insane?

Also, what is this shecky #12 thing?

Dekay,

I'll leave it to Rob explain The Sheckys to you (there are 12 of them), but as far as the other things you related to in what he wrote, you might want go Google "
synesthesia" and see if it fits for you.

I guess might have synesthesia, but I keep seeing mentions of these sheckys. It's starting to really eat at me, since I have keep imagining what the heck sheckys are. I mean, are they people, are they a sacred council of people, maybe they're some sort of puzzle piece.

Well, this synesthesia really isn't a problem right?

You're needed here.  Only you can adequately explain The Sheckys.  Do you want this young man to go crazy trying to figure out what they are?
