--I’VE GOT BLOOD IN MY EYES FOR YOU
…Today feels like a good day, don’t you think? I sure hope so.
…Here’s a video of a reading I did last Monday in Capitol Hill at The Hugo House (it’s R-Rated):
…Every day I get a different song stuck in my head. It’s usually something form Les Miserables. Yesterday, though it was “You Got What I Need,” by Freddy Scott. That’s a fun one to sing along with, to groove to. It’s awful when you get a terrible song stuck in your head, say anything by Phil Collins, or “Friday” by that one-hit wonder teenage girl.
Today’s song is “Bubbly” by Colbie Caliat. Yikes.
…Here are some things I like for the middle of the week:

“A wise man once said nothing.”

“Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know why I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.” Will Rogers
