My love, tell me what it’s all about
You’ve go something that I can’t live without
Happiness, is so hard to find
Hey baby, tell me what is on your mind

In the moonlight shadow

Quote of the Day: The Blues Brothers

Jake: [to Sister Mary Stigmata] Five grand? No problem, we’ll have it for you in the morning. Let’s go, Elwood.

Sister Mary Stigmata: No, no! I will not take your filthy stolen money!

Jake: Well then… I guess you’re really up Shit Creek.

[Sister Mary Stigmata hits Jake Blues with a ruler for using that kind of language]

Sister Mary Stigmata: I beg your pardon, what did you say?

Jake: I offered to help you… You refused to take our money. Then I said: I guess you’re really up Shit Creek!

[Sister Mary Stigmata hits Jake Blues with the ruler again]

Elwood: Christ, Jake. Take it easy man.

[Sister Mary Stigmata hits Elwood Blues]

Jake: Oh shit!

[Sister Mary Stigmata hits Jake Blues]

Elwood: Jesus Christ!

[Sister Mary Stigmata hits Elwood Blues]

Jake: Shit!

Set to explode in the heat
You won’t tire
‘Cause Baby, you were born with the beat

Quote of the Day: Yul Brynner Anti-Smoking Ad

“Now that I’m gone, I tell you: Don’t smoke. Whatever you do, just don’t smoke. If I could take back that smoking, we wouldn’t be talking about any cancer. I’m convinced of that.”

Yul Brynner was born on this day in 1920. He began smoking when he was 12 years old. Throughout his career, promotional photos often showed him with a cigarette in his hand. He quit smoking in 1971. In 1983, it was discovered that he had inoperable lung cancer. In early 1985, aware he was dying, Brynner gave an interview on Good Morning America discussing the dangers of smoking. During the interview, he mentioned that he wanted to to make an antismoking commercial. He made an ad with the American Cancer Society. Brynner died of lung cancer on October 10, 1985, in New York City. A few days after his death, the recorded anti-cigarette public service announcement was shown on all the major US television networks, and also in many other countries.

Last Song: “Be Good Johnny” by Men at Work from Business as Usual (1982)

Oh no, Ma, Oh no, Da, I’ll be your golden boy
I will obey every golden rule
Get told by the teacher not to day-dream
And told by my mother
