So here is Bill Murray covering "I Will Always Love You" on "Letterman" while dressed as Liberace.
Because it's Friday, and it's a thousand degrees outside.
Because, truth be told, we're really just counting down the hours until someone puts an ice-chilled Tecate or a mezcal cocktail in our hands, and we can start calling all our friends with pools who owe us favors.
Because even though that's usually our default setting, we're really feeling it extra hard today.
Because the rest of the news of the world today is an unrelenting mess of unmitigated terribleness.
Remember that occasionally there's pleasure in the world, Pop & Hissers.
