YouTube Founders on the recent sale

I guess I’d be excited coming into hundreds of millions too. Apparently the ‘two kings’ comment is a play on the recent teaming of Burger King and Diddy.

God to again do Cocaine

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2006

Eric Clapton

Eric Clapton will again play “Cocaine” in concert. I’m surprised becoming sober didn’t make him play it more since it’s very anti-cocaine.

    “I thought that it might be giving the wrong message to people who were in the same boat as me,” Clapton recently told The Associated Press.”

    “But further investigation proved … the song, if anything, if it’s not even ambivalent, it’s an anti-drug song. And so I thought that might be a better way to do it, to approach it from a more positive point of view. And carry on performing it as not a pro-drug song, but just as a reality check about what it does.”
