my favorite song this week is Dave Hollister's "Never Gonna Change." i heard it friday when i went downstairs to the firehook to get cappucino. besides having a great bread and pastry selection, the firehook is always playing great hiphop and R&B as opposed to Au Bon Pain in the Ass that mostly plays stupid middle-aged-yuppie-Norah Jones-crap jazz. (once in a while they play Sinatra and that's fine, of course.) mr. hollister had me practically bawling while i was shaking cocoa in the foam. i'm not one of those White People Trying To Be Black, it just reminded me of how you can love the place that made ya even while you're trying like hell to get out of it.
