Listening Post

I'm not going to be one of those people who bitches about how Valentine's Day is a cynical money-making scam conjured up by greeting card companies or whatever -- all because I happen to be alone today and can't see myself changing that over the next couple of years, if ever really. (Sorry, but I simply don't think I'm capable of truly surrendering myself to something as ephemeral and potentially devastating as love anymore.)

But maybe somewhere very deep inside me there's still a willingness to believe that it's possible for two people to make love work and make it last -- as long as they know going into it that emotions are complex things, and love isn't always pretty.

Here's Incubus -- Love Hurts.

You could describe Valentine's day in that manner just because it's true.

hey Chez,

Right there with you man. Another song you might dig is "Money grabber" by Fitz and the Tantrums. Cathartic in a fun way.

Aren't you married to Jayne still? What am I missing?

A hell of a lot, apparently.

Jesus, have you not read anything here in the past, what, two years?
