So last time I slyly slipped in a factoid about my early advanced reading. (Go ahead slow clap again, if you must) My mother contends it was partially fostered by my intense and frequent viewing of Sesame Street. When Mama and I first had Pablo we were very adamant about controlling his TV viewing. We would turn him away from the set. When we finally loosened up a bit about it all we initially allowed only 30 minutes a day of Baby Einstein type DVDs. After that we moved up to Sesame Street.
I love Sesame Street. I rediscovered it with amazing guest stars like Amy Sedaris and current parodies of Mad Men. The show contains enough to occupy a parent watching with their kids. So, guess what? For you, loyal readers of Mustache Robots, I have prizes. I have a ticket giveaway to see Sesame Street Live.

They say music is next to cleanliness. Actually no one says that, but if I did, it would also make it next to Godliness.
Great new free music is just one of the things that fuels me. I remember once commenting that perhaps I needed to cut back on the amount I have and seek out. Lately, been thinking I write too much about music and should try some other topics. But I was reminded by a friend a while back that it’s part of what feeds my soul. I need it to maintain vitality, which sounds like my Dad’s old hairspray VO5. Yeah, I said Dad. If you don’t refresh your arts, your creative juices, whatever it is that keeps you fired-up, you’ll stagnate. I just needed more of it to be free back then. Well, now that’s not a problem.
Brendan Benson (The Raconteurs, but really you should know his better early solo stuff. Yeah, I said better. His first two solo albums, One Mississippi and Lapalco are stellar.) is giving away his awesome new single, A Whole Lot Better. Get it on Amazon now. At 1:56 to the end of this song is as good anything I have heard in months. Listen, love, repeat.
Whatever it is that turns your crank, get it now. Enjoy. Go and be creative.
