for the birds

January 14, 2003
Funny of the Moment
"Beautiful day..."
"Yes it is."
"Hear the birds?"
"Yes I do."
"Sometimes...I like to imagine what it would be be deaf...and not be able to hear the birds...'s not so bad."
--Poor Transcription from 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'. HBO was having some kind of marathon.

Article of the Moment
"The Spy Who Gonged Me -- Was Chuck Barris a CIA Assassin?" That interesting tidbits, plus high(or low-)lights from "The Dating Game" and "The Newlywed Game". (Come to think of it, it looks like the wolf files may have cribbed from Salon the Salon article I previously kisrael'd.)

Quote of the Moment
"If people really liked work, we'd still be plowing the ground with sticks and transporting goods on our back."
--William Feather
