A 'Hey Rube' A Day.....

....Keeps The Crazy Away.

And the Rubes have all been archived, indexed, collated, and curated by Rory over at Totally Gonzo.

One my favorites starts like this:

Warren Zevon arrived at my house on Saturday and said he was in the mood to write a few songs about Hockey. "Thank God you're home," he said. "I had to drive all night to get out of Utah without being locked up. What's wrong with those people?".....

I mean, it's almost like you can still hear that damnable Mojo humming.

Or, at the very least, clickety-clacking to wheezy life as another deadline comes and goes and the real stomping of the terra begins once more in earnest.

Oh, and if you haven't watched any Zevon on Letterman you have missed more stomping than you'd ever see, even on a million star-crossed Saturday nights in Sudbury waiting for the return of T. Connors.....Seriously.

The last Letterman interview is remarkable. You could do worse than to go through life remembering to enjoy every sandwich.

It's one of the most remarkable things I have ever seen on television.

And what makes it all the more so is the fact that Mr. Letterman is so completely free of snark.
