Happy Valentines Day

Today is a day for what you make it, how you make it, with whom you either choose or have no choice but to be drawn to. For that by design, default of destiny, if anything today is a celebrate that intangible thing that  goes beyond pencil, word or thought. So I turn to music. An oldie but goodie, I hope you enjoy this one, and this Valentine’s Day, with that certain special someone that makes you feel big, valued, cherished, and most of all loved. Happy Valentine’s Day.

Thank You Everyone

I just got back from a trip to the Middle East and my arms are really fucking tired (I know, I know, but I just can’t help it. I was told to keep my day job and not look into switching careers to become a comedian.) But big shout out to my peoples over there, especially David and Ahmed. You guys are great and I look forward to all of the work that we will be doing in the future. Also, big shout to everyone with whom I worked with and just in-general crossed paths with in 2011. It was an incredible and strange year, and I look forward to seeing it out with a bang and some class.

And I look forward to a wonderful, prosperous, peaceful, gratifying, happy 2012 to everyone that I know. This year was major, but let us all get together to spread love and to make 2012 the best one yet. I know that we can do it! I know we can, so let’s get to it… Peace and love, Cosmo.
