Thursday, Mar. 17, 2005

Thanks to Jodie I now have something to be cheerful about today. It’s raining here, I am having a major allergy attack and I have packages in my mailbox but I still HAVE NO KEY from my apartment manager….fuck that is a long angry story I haven’t even mentioned here. But back to the happy news….. Besterburg: The Best of Paul Westerberg is gonna be released on May 17, 2005, which is my 35th birthday. And so now my birthday will be besterberg’er than bestest’ever. Dang I just realized my 35th is two months away.



I love Paul, and the reasons are so many I'll never list them all....but the following quote.....is one of them....

“There’s deep despair, but when you get so deep into despair, there’s also beauty there, you know?” Westerberg told LA Weekly in 1999. “This is, like, a serious, dark hole, and you find beauty. . . . I went in deeper and deeper. Maybe the beauty was, like, a present or a gift or something, to say, ‘Okay, you’ve suffered long enough; here’s something to be proud of.’” - P. Westerberg/OC Weekly
