I have a big long post to compose but can't summon up the energy. Even though I didn't go to BlogHer, I seem to have caught the BlogHerbola that's going around. I blame SueBob.
So, a few things.
Run, don't walk, and get a copy of Two Men With The Blues by Willie Nelson and Wynton Marsalis. Even if you don't think you like Willie Nelson, this is fantastic. His phrasing and Marsalis' horn playing are just incredible.
Could Wynton Marsalis be any cooler? The dood is slick....
There's a great interview on NPR from a few weeks back that you should listen to, too. It's fantastic.
Lara, over at Life: The Ongoing Education, posted an iPod meme. I'd participate, but my iPod is currently full of This American Life, which doesn't translate. But she did post a stanza from this song, which amazed me.
I don't know why I'm always surprised when people like Elton John - maybe because I've had to defend my liking for Reg for years. But the man can write songs. (Well, him and Bernie Taupin.)
And finally, a meme I can do.
