You'll tell your father you're free and I'll scrape the grime from under my fingernails and we'll get in a great big car and put the top down assuming the rental place has a convertible available that day and we'll drive, drive, drive. We'll drive to somewhere where nobody knows our names and nobody hates us for being in love and no mean-eyed gang boys will ever flash their knives at us again or even their combs that are made up to look like knives so they're just as scary in the shadows of these evil streetcorners. I hear Tucson is nice.
Then, Rosalita baby, we'll find a big house with a big yard and French doors and those faucets with those big lever-like handles instead of those little wheels that you turn. We'll leave those old-fashioned faucets behind like the urine stench in the gangways. We'll have a baby or two babies and a dog and we'll all run as free as the first 75 songs of a trial membership to eMusic. And we'll finally have a GE Cordless 5.8GHz Triple Handset Phone System to call our own.
When they call us, when all the people from the old neighborhood try to tear us down, we won't even hear them because we'll see their numbers on the caller ID and we won't answer the phone. I promise you, Rosalita. And if they leave messages on the Digital Answering System we'll just ignore those too, because nothing they can say can ever cool the fire inside me that burns for you, my Rosalita.
I know the odds are against two crazy kids in love. But I believe, Rosalita. I believe a simple HVAC repairman like me and a waitress like you can beat anything this world can throw at us because souls like us, Rosalita, we just have to be free and wild and free. That's why the next time I'm in your restaurant, I'm going to introduce myself and ask you out. Destiny is calling, Rosalita - in three selectable ring tones.

Ask anyone in the art world. There's nothing new left anywhere. And if there was, it wouldn't sell. People don't want something they've never seen before. They want something they're used to, presented in an unexpected way.
If you want to be a pioneer, you're just going to have to accept that you'll be somewhere that no one else will ever be. Maybe once you're dead, you'll be remembered. But you'll never get to enjoy it. And in the meantime, you're still going to have to eat.
That's the choice. Fight to get records made like a Scott Walker or feed on the ideas of others like a David Bowie. And don't get too judgmental about those who make the second choice. Because hunting is an art all to itself, and only the strongest predators will ever get fat.
Wear this shirt: if you're looking to be a talent scout for a major label. Make sure the kids know right off the bat what's coming.
Yeah, it's one of those mornings. Last night I went fifteen rounds with Kid Cabernet and the decision was as split as my skull feels right now. I'm seriously considering moving to one of those states that Wine.Woot doesn't ship to, for my own good.
But no, no. I can take it. All I need is a good, stiff cup of decent coffee. Make that great coffee. Make that Thanksgiving Coffee, the organic, sustainable, fair-trade coffee with a soul as pure as its flavor.
Let's see, what'll it be? The double-caffeinated Pony Express? The elegantly tropical light-roast Kona Blend? Byron's Maracaturra, a fruity, floral, smooth hybrid varietal developed just for Thanksgiving by Nicaraguan grower Byron Corrales? Maybe the Gorilla Fund Coffee, a rich Rwandan light roast produced by both Hutu and Tutsi farmers, with a portion of the profits donated to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund? Or maybe Noyo Harbor French, Thanksgiving's punchy signature French roast?
Aw, man. State I'm in, I'm in no mood to decide. So I won't. I'll have a cup of each. That oughtta get me ready for the day. Ahhh...that's the stuff. I can see why they call it Thanksgiving Coffee, because I'm feeling pretty grateful right now myself.
