Ladies and Gentlemen, 

Boys and Girls, 

Zeros and Ones. 

WE HAVE LIFTOFF. 

Let's submit ourselves to the fact that we will never fully be happy with where we are artistically and allow ourselves a small respite of comfort in the knowledge that we've done great work. Can we do that? I really enjoyed the conversation I had with Aly Tadros, She's a good egg. This blog is going to grow over this monday morning. But for now, I'm too tired, and it's 3 in the morning. Listen to this Episode! it has talons on it!
