I am in the midst of a project right now that has quickly turned into one of the more difficult things I’ve come across in the last couple of years. It involves trying to pick some of my favorite songs of all-time. The goal is to narrow it down to somewhere in the neighborhood of 7-10 songs. Yesterday I started the process and I have it down to approximately 126 songs. Heh. Anyway, I guess I don’t have a point to make here, other than to say that The Hollies were a very underrated band and I think I might have to include two Big Star songs.

I finally succumbed over the weekend to a nasty cold. I felt like it had been building since my visit to New York and it caught up with me. It’s one of those colds that gives you a sharp headache. In the 20th century, we invented television, flew airplanes for the first time, launched the internet & personal computing and also cured many diseases. But we did not find the solution for the common cold. Incredible.

Have been enjoying the HBO series “Band of Brothers” quite a bit. Who needs HBO when you can just watch everything on DVD one season later?

There’s nothing more annoying than the 1-800-MATT-RES ads on the radio. Oh wait, there’s Giant Glass. I think these might be specific to Bostonians, but those of you from here know exactly what I am talking about.

Song now playing: The Hollies – “The Air That I Breathe”
