A coworker recently said something along the lines of "I just want to do good things for people & get paid well for it". I think there's both an oxymoron & some truth to that statement. The oxymoron comes from the fact that I half believe that a good deed is one that doesn't get rewarded. The truth comes from the fact that I believe it's what just about everybody in the world is looking for. Selling paint isn't the most rewarding of occupations at the moment, if it ever was. I have a job, though, so I shouldn't complain. But I do, 'cause I can.
Five Favorite Songs of the Day
The Pick-Up-Sufjan Stevens, The Avalanche
Ring Them Bells-Bob Dylan, Tell Tale Signs
This song has been in constant rotation lately. On the way home from Detroit the other day, I posed the question to Christie, what is the difference between two people's brains that makes one of them think this is brilliant & the other to think it's crap?
"they're breaking down the difference between right & wrong"
Stop Breaking Down-Robert Johnson
"this stuff I got's gonna bust your brains out, gonna make you lose your mind"
Frankie & Albert-Mississippi John Hurt
We Call Upon the Auther-Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Dig! Lazarus Dig!
Happy Wednesday, friends...
