In honor of Capricorn-----

I don't know about you but in order for me to get to the gym I either need George Clooney handing out gold bullion or I need something great on my Ipod. Last I heard George is trying to erase genocide not giving me gold--so I am forced to make sure my Ipod is crammed with good listening.

On this Capricorn New Moon I made sure I went to the gym every day, well, 3 of the 4 days, and the only thing that got me there was THIS AMERICAN LIFE. It has always been my favorite NPR program, (along with FRESH AIR with Terri Gross) it is well produced, so thoughtful and the theme of each hour is constructed beautifully-- to the second. Not one hair out of place. Yesterday at the gym I listened to one of the latest installments. It is called LAST MAN STANDING and as I listened to it I could feel the "Capricorn" in it. The dedication of the people who found themselves the only people believing in something and standing by their belief. Despite all hardships they hung on. I mean....really hung on. If you have a little time, please click on this it. I think you will see what I'm talking about.



  1. i love this american life. i am about to get back to the gym here, so i appreciate the reminder.

    i think my favorite show ever was the one about niagara falls, ny. totally engrossing.

  2. Oh, I didn't know about Niagra.
    I just found it and will put on my ipod. Thanks for the heads up...see you at the gym soon!
