Steve Martin

Finished an article in the recent New Yorker, the one with the Jack O’Lantern that looks like Cheney on the cover. The article, written by Steve Martin, is about his start in comedy. A sentence struck me-
“…there is no harm in charging oneself up with delusions between moments of valid inspiration.”

Also something from the article about the Animal Collective by Sasha Frere-Jones –
“…imperfection is necessarily part of the process.”

(damn, they have a myspace page. I do not like myspace. It is ugly)
