Merry Christmas 2017!

Hope you and yours are having a good holiday. To be honest, Christmas has become kind of a meh day for me in the last decade or so. Thanksgiving Day is so much better to me. Whatever. You guys don't really care what I think about Christmas Day.

I really wanted to come up with something I could give to visitors to the site. I just haven't figured out what that could be. Check back...maybe I'll think of something!

"Creativity is knowing how to hide your sources." - Albert Einstein

“Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” - Walt Disney

“An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.” - Oscar Wilde

“When you make music or write or create, it's really your job to have mind-blowing, irresponsible, condomless sex with whatever idea it is you're writing about at the time." - Lady Gaga

“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to." - Jim Jarmusch

“You have to do stuff that average people don't understand because those are the only good things.” - Andy Warhol
