2007: IN LIKE A LAMB
The Christmas and New Year's holidays just weren't the same without that last minute rush of retail business like the days of old. As NYCD starts year #2 of office work, we look forward to keeping the music alive. I know, a very cheesy thing to say. But, if we say it enough, maybe, just maybe, things will take a turn for the better. It is for the love of music that we plan on hanging around a bit longer. (It certainly isn't for the love of money.) Our goal is to stay positive! We started the new year, healthy and somewhat happy. Two very important things.
An old friend called to say hello for the holidays and we discussed many things, including the things that cause us stress. Our jobs, our health. Not to mention the smaller pointless things like slow subway service. OR the terrible, expensive coffee at Starbucks along with its slow service. Rod Stewart. Paris Hilton. Movies over 95 minutes. As I continued with my litany of complaints, he interrupted me and asked me, "If you only had 3 months to live, would you give a shit about the subway or Starbucks or any of this?" My answer was, "Of course not." "So why do you care now?" He had a point. So I've decided, from here on out, not to care about those things. And neither should you. Enjoy your life! Fill it with music. And for those of you with 3 months or less to live, can we please have your CDs? WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF STUFF TO SELL!!!
