Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah

In the last 36 hours, I have been to Museo del Barrio to listen to an Afro-Rican 13 member "tropical band," to an Irish bar on the upper West Side to hear one guy in cool glasses do the best cover songs ever, to The Bitter End in Greenwich Village to hear one crazy unidentifiable band plus one rock and roll band (think Black Crows plus Ryan Adams), to the Blues House to see four guys from LA, to Broadway to see Spring Awakening, to TriBeCa to a place called The Knitting Room to hear reggae ska and reggae funk, to a Chinese/Mexican restaurant, and to a Japanese/Italian restaurant (that is cheesecake tempura on the upper left and a yellowtail/asparagus/pesto roll on the right). Oh, and I had to stay awake for the second most boring lecture of our three weeks on only four hours of sleep.

So, anyway, Amy, that's why I didn't blog last night. And Karyn, I LOVED SA. "blah blah blah blah blah..." (that is from a great song from the musical, but I cannot write the title here or my blog will be flagged.) Kristy was concerned with the twelve year old boy sitting behind us, though, since the performance is so, um, "progressive." (Mom and Dad, you probably wouldn't like it.) "His parents are going to have to talk to him tonight!" she said. What talent, in such young people!

So, anyway, I have nothing to say right now at almost 4 am, but here is a little post, anyway. I have decided, though, that the live music is going to take up most of my last week here.

Marjie - So glad to hear from you again! Even a small post from you is still like pizza from the gods.

Edison says hi.

yeah... I don't even know what to say about your 36 hour extravaganza. Except that is like my dream night!! or two nights...

WOW! Oh, and that kid may have just had one of the most pivotal moments of his LIFE, and he probably doesn't even know it yet. It will all make sense soon... I did the traditional SA play about 12 years ago with my theater group - was quite the summer. I'll share about that over mole!

While I was disappointed not to see a blog on Thursday night, I did look at the clock last night, and it was right about when you would have been getting out of SA, so I was super excited for you! And I wasn't even there! :-) Can't wait to hear more...

Oh and for the longest time, I loved the name Wendla, and thought it'd be a cool girl's name. But thought twice since, well, you know her story... My fav song, though, is her "Mama." Can't wait to hear it live. Plus "I Believe"... ahhh... so jealous...

Thanks for the blog fix. What a
"night!"

Your photo, well, you look like a model...

I loved "Mama." It was the most powerful beginning of a musical I have ever seen!

It was great to see you Marjie! I just wish that I could have seen the whole play through with you... According to "the Norris Clan," it is a "must see!" I, too, really liked the opening song, "Mama." and in case any one is wondering, the cheesecake was absolutely delish!!!
