It's Marlene Dietrich's birthday, and maybe in the future she'll get a proper birthday post, but for now we'll celebrate with Suzanne Vega's "Marlene on the Wall" inspired by a poster of Dietrich Vega had up in her apartment (on the wall, get it!).
When Eric, Clark and I went to see the Indigo Girls a few years ago, Eric commented that they will be playing "Closer to Fine" at least 300 times a year for the rest of their lives. I wish this, and not "Luka," was Vega's obligatory early hit. Once again life doesn't conform to my wishes. Morans.
