The PointI love The Point! I have listened to it so many times that I can recite pretty much the entire album from memory. I sang Think About Your Troubles to my son within an hour of his birth, and I sing it to him almost every night before bed. I love the story, the narration, the music, the songs, the sound of the pages turning as Nilsson reads. If you haven’t heard it, please find a copy — or ask me — because it’s worth your time.

Here are my five favorite tracks from the album:

  1. Think About Your Troubles
  2. Me and My Arrow
  3. Poli High
  4. Are You Sleeping?
  5. P.O.V. Waltz

I'll never share your email address and it won't be published.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
