Because I was going through this month's Wired, when I came upon an article about lost pop culturer treasures...you know..missing footage from Dr. Stragelove, Jerry Lewis' Nazi clown movie...stuff like that. That when I saw something about that suitcase nuke starring Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffmann that almost wiped Columbia Pictures off the map.
It was about two REALLY BAD songwriters...but the songs were, according to the article...brilliantly crummy. That's thanks to Paul Williams, who took time out from writing hits for the Carpenters and starring in Burt Reynolds' movies to pen some of the gems sprinkled in the film, making them sound just good enough to give you hope before it all goes in the toilet.
Out of that, one lyric was posted in the article that pretty much sums up what I have been going through with my various posts online and dealing with people I love who have yet to see the way. And if you have been dealing with truth to...you will understand..
Telling the truth can be dangerous business.
Honest and popular don’t go
hand in hand.
If you admit you can play the accordion
No one will hire
you in a rock-and-roll band.
-Paul Williams, Ishtar, 1987
