quotation

A lot people say they’d like to be a billionaire. But they never ask themselves: Do I want the brain of that billionaire? They think about the money. But to have that money, you’d need that kind of brain, and you’d have to have those thoughts at night and all the stuff that goes with it. ↔ Albert Brooks

tune

It being Valentine’s Day and all, I figured it best to go with a song about love, or at least one that had “love” in the title. And so I present Nada Surf‘s cover of The Go-Betweens‘ “Love Goes On.”

I’d love to offer some insight into last night’s Grammy Award Show but I had no inclination to watch it, so I have no idea what went on.

All right, sorry, folks, gotta hang up the spurs on this one. Exhaustion is setting in and sleep is next. Thanks for reading.
