I’d shared with him the Stevie Wonder song “Pastime Paradise” that Coolio’s song “Gangster’s Paradise” is based on. Wow, I didn’t know… Read More »

You’ve Been Faithful to Us Clouds

“Is this the hold music?” Ming asked.  He had a sideways skeptical look. “I wish!” I said, on hold with my doctor’s office.  “What a world that would be.”  Holy hold music, batman.
