"Artists need to make money to eat and to continue to make art. Artists used to rely on middlemen to collect their money on their behalf, thereby rendering themselves innocent of cash-handling in the public eye. Artists will now be coming straight to you (yes YOU, you who want their music, their films, their books) for their paychecks. Please welcome them. Please help them. Please do not make them feel badly about asking you directly for money. -Amanda Palmer

Goodbye Yogi

Today I learned: Yogi Berra's name wasn't really Yogi.

(Also, that Yogi Berra was still alive till just now...)

I loved Yogi Berra, he was all class, all the way. He spent the twilight of his career in Houston and would be on the radio before every ballgame. Loved listening to him talk to Milo Hamilton, our hall of fame announcer who died last week. They were both so intelligent and knowledgeable about the game.

And boy could he hit the ball! 3 time MVP, Hall of Fame, 10 Championship rings! Dayum! As a manager he won a pennant in both leagues.
