Galerie Salon and wanted to share it.
You know those times when you just really need a good laugh, and there is that certain thing that you can go to in your head? Maybe something someone said, a joke, a scene from a movie? For me, alot of those times, it is the movie Radio Days. There are so many scenes in that movie that not only make me laugh, but laugh until it hurts, with tears running down my face. Certain scenes I can just think about and I'm cheered up. It's one of those movies that I used to watch whenever it was on TV, and then suddenly realized it's never on anymore. So today when I was really needing a laugh I searched a clip on Youtube, and sure enough, it still does the trick. I'm gonna have to buy the DVD. One of my all-time favorites.

from Pilgrim at Tinker Creek - Annie Dillard
"There are many things to see, unwrapped gifts and free surprises. The world is fairly studded and strewn with pennies cast broadside by a generous hand. But - and this is the point - who gets excited by a mere penny? If you follow one arrow, if you crouch motionless on a bank to watch a tremulous ripple thrill on the water and are rewarded by the sight of a muskrat paddling from it's den, will you count that sight a chip of copper only, and go on your rueful way? It is dire poverty indeed when a man is so malnourished and fatigued that he won't stoop to pick up a penny. But if you cultivate a healthy poverty and simplicity, so that finding a penny will literally make your day, then, since the world is in fact planted in pennies, you have with your poverty bought a lifetime of days. It is that simple. What you see is what you get."

From Icelandic composer, musician and producer Johann Johannsson's first solo album "Englaborn".
In 'Odi et amo', he sets the Catullus poem of the same name to music.
"What I really like about it is the harsh contrast of the computer voice and strings, the alchemy of total opposites, the sewing machine and umbrella on a dissecting table."Johann Johannson, from here
