Smartless Podcast + Paul McCartney

I love Will Arnett and found out that he, Jason Bateman and Sean Hayes have a podcast called Smartless. They are a great group of interviewers, and they are all laugh-out-loud funny, in a brilliant way. The Paul McCartney interview was vulnerable and touching, and their interview questions were thoughtful and sensitive. I listened to it three times. Now your turn.

McCartney III

I’m open to listening to all Paul McCartney music. I saw McCartney III on my iPhone and played it on my iPhone and Tribit while making dinner. I couldn’t believe the delicious noise that came to my ears. So many varied styles of music and voice – all over the place!

From Wikipedia: “McCartney III is the 18th solo album by English musician Paul McCartney, released on 18 December 2020 by Capitol Records. It serves as a continuation to his solo albums McCartney (1970) and McCartney II (1980). Like those albums, McCartney III features McCartney on all instruments.”

I LOVE the direction McCartney is going, which is free and all over the place! I am grateful to be alive and hear his fabulous music. His creativity is inspiring! Deep Deep Feeling!

It’s Not Real

What advice would I like to give? To be patient, to be tolerant and to not fritter away your creativity by looking at a screen. A screen can open your eyes to a lot of wonderful things that you wouldn’t normally have access to, but mostly it’s not real. Look out of your window, because that is reality. When it comes to making an important photograph, reality is the greatest place to start. — Grace Coddington

Grace Coddington is 80-years-young. I really admire her. She is still dying her hair red. She works for British Vogue.

Spend It Wisely

Suppose you are given a pot of money, which will get wasted day-by-day whether you spend it or not. Then spending all your days thinking, “why am I given this money?” is useless and the most right step at the moment would be, “I am given this money and I have to spend it wisely.”

I am not sure whose quote this is.

Jeff Bezos, please give away a lot of your money to help people in need. That’s what I would do if I had a lot of money.

Have The Courage

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” — Steve Jobs
