Clinton's Stuart Smalley moment

Posted By on Tue, Jan 6, 2009 at 12:35 PM

"I remember looking in the mirror one day when I first started to shave, thinking, "'No matter how hard you work, you'll never be John Coltrane or Stan Getz. You're good, and you could be really good, but you'll probably never be that great.'" President Clinton on his decision to go into politics inside of music on Elvis Costello's new talk show, "Spectacle." It's pretty good. [Sundance Channel]

"I've known the Clintons very, very well over the years, and I just think he is a different quality person. It's like apples and submarines. I think he is way less interested in or fascinated by Hollywood." Entertainment mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg, employing a metaphor known only to him, on the difference in the relationship between Clinton and Obama with Hollywood. [Chicago Tribune]

"You’re songs are gonna stink at first! OURS DID! Just keep writing, and make sure everyone hears your music!" Local emo-poppers School Boy Humor offer advice to aspiring musicians and exclusively end sentences with exclamation points. [Shine On Media]
