Some Recommendations for Bartlett's

Here's a couple of useful quotes that I recently came across and in all likelihood, they will not make it into Bartlett's.

"You can't have it all, where would you put it?" - Lemmy. He probably did not originate this but in his inimitable way he has made it his own. Ironically in the "Lemmy" documentary aired on VH1, the tour of Lemmy's cluttered apartment would indicate that while he does not have it all, he has a lot of it. He desreves a Hoarders episode. The cameraman made the very human mistake of being unable to differentiate the garbage can from the coffee table and was chided by Lemmy for his error. Another gem of Lemmy wit was when showing off a portrait/mosaic made by a fan, he quipped "Shame someone dropped it".

Second quote: "We live in an age when you say casually to somebody "What's the story on that?" and they can run to the computer and tell you within five seconds. That's fine, but sometimes I'd just as soon continue wondering. We have a deficit of wonder right now" - Tom Waits. Great title for a song or album: Deficit of Wonder.

A funny moment on the Roy Orbison "Black & White Night" DVD was when Tom Waits claimed to have babysit (sat?) for Roy Orbison. The thought of Waits babysitting for anyone is hilarious...
