there are apparently a lot of versions of this fable. i like this one the best.

once there was a middle eastern potentate who wanted his two sons to become the most intelligent people in the world. in order to do this he called a meeting of all the wise men in the kingdom and ordered them to gather all the world's knowledge together in one place so his sons could read it. the wise men returned in a year with twenty five volumes of knowledge. the potentate told them that it was far too long and asked them to condense it. the wise men left and returned a year later, but this time with only a single volume. the potentate told them that it was still too long for his sons and ordered them to condense it further. the wise men left for another year and returned and gave the potentate a piece of paper with a single sentence on it.

the sentence read: "this too shall pass."

beautiful. simply beautiful.

in case you weren't already aware, lucero is playing at the intersection on april 25th. if you don't listen to lucero, you're missing out on one of the single best bands playing music today. and you're retarded.

a few weeks back my mom asked me what i would do if i won the lottery. it's a pretty common question really, but at the time i couldn't think of anything i wanted. i'm a simple man with simple pleasures. movies, books, occasional drinks. all things i can already afford. but i think i got it figured out now.

if i won the lottery, i would pay morgan freeman to follow me around and narrate my life.

i was watching north by northwest the other day and i started thinking about mount rushmore, where the movie's climax takes place. the thing i don't get about mount rushmore: teddy roosevelt. sure, i buy washington, jefferson, and lincoln. but teddy roosevelt? i would have gone with his fifth cousin myself. but hey, that's just me.

just seems like an odd choice, like the designers were just like, "and throw someone recent in there too. what about that 'talk softly and carry a big stick' guy? people liked him, right?"

nice teeth, though. gotta give him that.

the dark knight is going to be a great farwell performance from a promising young actor gone way before his time.
