Best. Show. Ever.

Thanks for the shout-out, Brian. It's a good thing I had finished my lunch when I heard it, or else I would have sprayed roast beef all over the table.

I have reciprocated your generosity on my blog.

Somebody once compared discovering Sinatra to marijuana. I don't remember it verbatim (I read it many, many years ago), but basically it's the following:

A friend suggests it and, despite internal warnings, you give it a shot. Then you only use it when you're alone, preferably in the dark. Then you discover its powers at seducing women. Finally, it becomes social, and it's being used with friends on balconies in broad daylight.

I should point out that the book I read this was not about drugs or music, but about baseball.
