I know it doesn't feel like spring outside, but I have proof that spring has begun. Go to Trumball Street, near the corner of State Street, and find the dripping tree. There's a huge maple with a broken branch up high, and it's dripping sap onto the grassy median between the sidewalk and the street. I walked past the puddle and thought, that's weird, a puddle and stuff dripping into it, even though there's nothing above but tree. So I turned back and let some of it drip into my hand, tasted it, and hey! Sweet-ish liquid. Nice. Someone should put a bucket out there to catch all the sappy goodness.
Also sweet? Yacht Rock, the current hit show of Channel 101. I love Yacht Rock. I love that it's made by guys who are genuine music nerds (just go to the Channel 101 forums and read the Yacht Rock threads), so while they're making fun of "smooth" music, they also really love it. Because it cannot be denied that "What a Fool Believes" is both cheesy AND an awesome song. If you must know what the show is before viewing it, visit the wiki article. And then go watch some YR. Episode 2 is my favorite but they're all worthwhile.
