Heavenly mansions

I'd have more of an "excuse" to post this video of this song were today the birthday of either Elvis or or Warren Zevon. But no, both were born in January, and today was actually warm. The song struck me, though, and stayed with me. Evidence that beauty and tenderness can coexist with weird sarcasm.

Whatever your reason for posting this song it's always nice to listen to Warren Zevon. You're right that although irony was a very strong aspect of his personality what made us care for him was his compassion.

Yes, I don't know how he arrived at his compassion. Perhaps just by living. He didn't let it get in the way of a good joke, though.
