Maybe it’s just November (I actually recited My November Guest to my buddies at the bar the other night) or maybe the economy is in the tank and my 401k is approaching 50% of what it was just 6 months ago. Anyhow, I feel low down.
Tamar Lewin of the NYT recently pointed out that in times like these hemlines fall, crime rates go up and people prefer songs like “‘Bridge Over Troubled Water,’ and ‘That’s What Friends Are For,’. In better times, it’s more likely to be faster, upbeat songs like ‘Macarena.’ ” So, I cehcked what’s topping the charts today – it’s T.I. – “Live Your Life” which instructs us to “make the most of the life you’ve got.” What’s more depressing than that is even “Playboy bunnies are beginning to look more mature – older, heavier, more reassuring.”
