Open Letter To The Weather

Hey, a White Christmas is nice and all, but you're kind of overdoing it – we've had more than a foot of snow since Friday. Please let up on the white stuff a little so we can enjoy it between shoveling sessions.

At your mercy,

Bob

Open Letter To Elvis Costello

Say, that new talk show of yours Spectacle, is a great idea, and I've enjoyed two shows I've seen, with Elton John (who produces the show), and Lou Reed (with Julian Schnabel tagging along… hee hee). But James Taylor ? C'mon, Joni Mitchell was too busy painting ?

Also, I'd like to see a little more youth – Jenny Lewis is a good start, but how about, say, Neko Case or James Murphy from DFA ?

And here are some more guest ideas, not that you're asking:
  • Andy Partridge
  • Paul McCartney
  • John Adams
  • David Bowie
  • Tom Waits
  • David Byrne
  • Caetano Veloso
  • Emmylou Harris
  • Gidon Kremer


A fan for perhaps too long,

Bob

Wouldn't It Be Great ?

Would it be great if you could pull out hidden agendas just by focussing on a few words of the one who spoke the words ? Even if there was nothing else they'd ever done or said that was consistent with those words and actions ?

Would it be great if you were one of the few who was really paying attention, uncovering the real story behind the sham front put up to distract the sheep ? And wouldn't it be great if you knew these things using only the witheringly bright light of your righteous suspicion, without the tedious fact-finding, self-criticism, or citations that others might whiningly demand ? Wouldn't be great if, when anyone else brought up facts contrary to your brave declarations, they were only more evidence of a nefarious plot to deceive all but the perceptive likes of you, the prophet without honor in his own time ?

Well, it isn't.
