Some things I thought were worth sharing today. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
1. My Own Life: Oliver Sacks on Learning He Has Terminal Cancer. A beautiful, thoughtful, touching essay.
2. "Their “studio” was a dingy, v-shaped warehouse attic. No acoustical tiles, no drum booth, no double-sealed glass window; they played and sang in the same room with their tape deck and mixing board, which were a TEAC half-inch 8-track and a cheap, used Soundcraft, respectively." The story of how the Eurythmics recorded the Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) album.
3. Quote: “For what it’s worth: it’s never too late... to be whoever
you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change
or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the
worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that
startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet
people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of.
If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over
again.” ~Eric Roth
4. Rare Beatles and Rolling Stones photos being released for the first time
through the Grammy Museum. Numbered, limited edition, never before seen.
Selections to be rolled out monthly through 2017. Even if you don’t buy it’s going
to be fun to experience this collection come to light.
5. Do you know about the on-line series, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee? Good laughs: Jerry Seinfeld style! You're sure to find an episode that has you laughing out loud.
