For now, it's time for the multimedia download rotation. The video is of the Frey version of the Roman poet Horace's philosophy "Carpe diem; memento mori" (or, as the Grass Roots put it, "sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today.") Yep, it's Before the Ship Goes Down. This is off of a 1992 episode of Late Night with David Letterman. The MP3 is that obscure rocker Outlaw Man, from Berkeley, CA in 1973 - got to stick that California aspect in here somehow.
P.S. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
