Hello to a raft of new subscribers (thanks to Kinneret Yifrah
for the shout out), I hope you know what you’re getting yourself into.
I’m currently reading Gil Scott-Heron’s posthumously published autobiography The Last Holiday (continuing the theme of discovering new music through obituaries, Scott-Heron was one of the first artists I discovered after he died).
He has a great line about success that’s stuck with me this week:
I feel that how successful you were depended on how comfortable you were. Some people were just small town people, and there was nothing wrong with that.
I like that line about being comfortable. It reminded me of this quote from John Waters:
Real wealth is never having to spend time around assholes
Success means different things to different people.
There are currently 410 of you on this list. ‘410’ is the police code for requested assistance reporting.
On with the show.
