Briefly… The December the 22nd, 2002 edition

“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence.
Talent will not. There is nothing more common then unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not. Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not. The world if full of educated derelicts. Persistence and Determination alone are Omnipotent.”
~ Joe Strummer

RIP Joe.

  1. I stayed up late last night considering writing about Joe but I just couldn’t do it without becoming depressed. I knew you’d write about him. He was/is my hero. I think he’s the only musician who stayed true to himself, didn’t “sellout” in artistic terms and never changed his personality. I miss him. I played mescaleros, his solo stuff and clash song while my wife slept. thanks for this.

    RIP Joe Strummer

    • Thanks man.

      My wife laughed at me for thinking I was “besties” with Joe, but he really was the first person to ever let me know that I was perfectly OK in just being me. As long as I made sure to make me a better version of me every day.

      I really hope that this week’s 100 Word gives some Joe love.

  2. Passion , pure passion…. <3
    When I will walk on Friday the streets of London THIS i will remember… until one day when you'll walk these streets too… and then we will remember THIS together…. =)

That's my two cents. Now, tell me what you think...
