:: [Prev] my happy place, day 2: Elvis Costello [Next]
If one must walk around and go into shops this time of year, nothing drowns out the oppressive holiday tunes like an iPod full of Elvis Costello. The man provides a bracing tonic to Christmas cheer. If you went a-carolling to his place, he'd probably drink all your wassail and call your reindeer a whore.
And the other night, Costello (or Declan McManus, international art thief) showed up on "The Colbert Report." He strummed while Stephen sang "Cheap Reward," a rare Costello oldie (and one of my favorite rare Costello oldies at that). Two of my favorite smart people doing something charming -- delightful!
