I’d Rather Have Nothing…

ratherhavenothing2jim mathis gave me a copy of his new autobiography, loud music and big pictures. one of the memories he wrote about was the time i said “i’d rather have nothing than settle for less.” i was actually quoting a line from the movie ishtar, where warren beatty is trying to keep dustin hoffman from jumping off of a window ledge– but i was also expressing the fact that i don’t need very much to make me happy, just the simple things in life. jim borrowed that line and wrote a song with his band sky blue.
