How time flies when it’s a short week because of a holiday! Here it is Friday already. Oh well, the better to celebrate the weekend. Let’s start with a note from San Diego’s RONN KILBY. He has a new title. It’s GRANDPA! And this cute little guy is Jackson, his first grandson. Jackson made his debut in San Diego on July 1, so he’s getting to be an old hand at this living thing. Congrats to Ronn, who is hinting at doing some kind of film named The Grandson at Kilby Pond.
Not only does PAUL FEY write drop-dead creative radio spots, but he writes one good subject line in his emails. This one arrived: Fun Stuff We’ve Done Lately. Of course I wanted to read it…a good tease and all. Seems the Wadio folks have been busy as can be, with spots for Starbucks (hope they provided some product for that, eh?), ESPN Apparel, Showtime’s image campaign “TV At It’s Best”, and the announcement that the WWW Family Guy section on You Tube has reached 1 million. Wow.
Think About This: (We thank the movie Captain Corelli’s Mandolin for this…it’s long, but it’s so lovely) "Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are.
Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two. – Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.
