A Week in the Life of Jeff Pollack, Collapse Board Superstar – week 2
by Wallace Wylie and Everett True
The second instalment in the highly influential and regarded series by onion-shaped construct Jeff Pollack, Collapse Board Superstar
This week promises to be both a highly influential and an enthralling one. If it sounds like I’m excited, that’s because I am. I look forward to the arrival of the new album by Elbow, a band who have managed to grow artistically without sacrificing their fierce individualism. I’m surprised this band hasn’t made more of an impact in America. This could be due in large part to the fact that you have to click on Elbow (disambiguation) when you put their name into Wikipedia, but I can assure you it is worth the extra bit of effort. Let’s just say if this were a casino and you were playing in the World Series Of Poker, you would have a hand flush to the king with Elbow.
A day that keeps getting better. It starts out well with a sublime and exceptional cup of coffee. It continues with arguably the greatest mid-morning snack that it has ever been my pleasure to devour. Mini-pretzels. Mid-afternoon, and I am faced with the unique and amazing challenge of answering fan emails about my Huffington Post column. Some of them made some really excellent points. If today continues this way it could end up being one of the most memorable days of recent weeks.
Today I was pleased to wash the car, something that I achieved entirely on my own terms. I would say that my car is now one of the cleanest cars on the planet, if not the entire solar system. I do not want to play the ‘dirty cars are bad’ game, however. I know of many dirty cars that are highly regarded by their owners, and rightly so.
Sometimes life is like bull riding. Sometimes it isn’t. My good friend Larry Mullen Jr once told me that.
