The upside is my voice is coming back. The down side is that I sound like a speaker with a broken wire. It sort of comes in and out with no rhyme or reason. I put in a call to my doctor to see if he can just call in a prescription for an antibiotic or something. I swear to god, I am not generally a very sick person, but this has not been a good year for illness so far.

I turned my latest cut over to the producers yesterday and happily, they all liked the episode and found it funny. There are some inherent story problems that they want to work on, but other than that, they're happy, which is a good thing.

The song of the day is "The Living Years" by Mike & the Mechanics off their 1988 album of the same name. The band started out as a side project of Mike Rutherford of Genesis. The band also included former Squeeze member and vocalist Paul Carrack. This song was autobiographical for Rutherford, about the contentious relationship he had with his father which was never righted before his father's death. I was familiar with the band and already had the album when they released the first single "Silent Running," which I also liked. But when "The Living Years" was released, it was a gigantic hit for the band. I always thought they were sort of a one off band with this record, but was surprised to discover they've released a total of 7 albums.

re: sickness...

Might have something to do with "revenge of the tonsils". :)

Of course you would mention a band that included Paul Carrack.

I remember the last time you lost your voice... good times.

I've got to try to stay up past 10 pm to watch your show . . . sadly, or perhaps, pitifully, I don't watch many 10 p.m. time slot shows
