This is not a pulpit, it's not a soapbox. This is not a forum for me to espouse my political and social viewpoints. (Well, OK, maybe it is.) It is, quite simply, a Burmese mahogany desk from the Pottery Barn. It's expensive. And it's where I spend the wee hours when I simply cannot sleep.
From here, I send a little shout-out to those special people, places, and things in my life...Welcome to the Middle of the Night.

More "Fandom Taken To Unnecessary Heights".
Never paid much attention to this when it came out a few years ago, but Joe Miller
brought it up last night and I just had to check it out..along the lines of the Prince
"Purple and Gold" Vikings track, here is Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen's Blackhawks
song, entitled "Keys to the City". Discuss amongst yourselves.
Broken Bells is a collaboration between Danger Mouse (Brian Barton) and James Mercer from The Shins.
Directed by Sophie Muller (annie lennox, sade, coldplay, dido, shakira, dixie chicks, duffy)
The album comes out March 9.
Like a lot of you, I was taken aback by the Prince sightings at the last few Vikings playoff games.
The Lil' Purple One looked very out of place in a skybox in typical Princey garb, watching the game with some regular ol' folk.
Inspired by his team's rout of the Cowboys last week, he apparently took to the studio to
bust off this track, entitled "Purple and Gold".
I was rooting for the Saints all along. Even though I'm a Cowboy fan from way back. I just like
Brees and Payton and the way that city has embraced the team. They need this Super Season more
than these other teams do.
But after hearing this track, I am WAY more for the Saints.
To end the post on a positive note...favorite Prince track ever? Discuss amongst yourselves.
Mine would have to be a tie between "She's Always In My Hair", and " I Wonder U".
In case you've been on a media fast, or on a desert island all last week, or maybe just can't wrap your head around what exactly is going on in this whole NBC/Tonight Show debacle, our friends overseas have done a tidy little animated summary to bring you up to speed...
