Crazy Peeps at It Again

Heh heh.

TWO CAN ANNE Ticket Contest: Rock of Ages & Burn the Floor

Hi, Kids! I'm proud to annouce a little ticket giveaway for local NYC readers or out-of-town fans planning a trip to NYC for some free Broadway fun. In this new economy, a delightful partnership has bloomed between TWO CAN ANNE and the cool folks at Arts Meets Commerce, and they've donated 2 sets of tickets to the following shows in which I'm happy to give away in a silly contest of my own choosing (TBD). The first show is Rock of Ages which I saw back in October and loved:

Rock of Ages on Broadway

And the second is Burn the Floor, which in this sparkly, fake-tanned, high-energy Dancing with the Stars world we live in, is a no-brainer for exciting entertainment:

So stay tuned for the contests which will be up shortly. The tickets will be in voucher form so you may choose the dates convenient for you. Everyone wins!

It's Been a Long, Long Time

Bing Crosby with Les Paul/Harry James
words by Sammy Cahn, music by Jule Styne

Peaked at # 1 in 1945
Competing versions charted that year by Harry James (#1); Charlie Spivak (#4);
and Stan Kenton (#6)
- World War II ended the month before this Crosby recording hit No. 1 on the
Billboard charts in 1945. Accompanied by Les Paul on the guitar, Bing
effectively captures the swelling anticipation of Americans regarding the
imminent return of their boys from overseas. The song remained on the
charts for 16 weeks"

RIP Les Paul

Les Paul, Live in NYC @ the Iridium Jazz Club ~ March, 2009
Guitar legend Les Paul died this morning of complications from pnemonia at the age of 94. Luckily, I was able to see Les live and kicking up a storm at the wee age of 93 back in March at the Iridium. RIP, Les.

Real Hoarders of America

I watched a show on TLC last night called Truth Be Told: I'm a Hoarder.

Real dialogue from last night's episode:

8-year old kid to his mom, Bernie:

"Mom? Have you seen my blue nunchucks?"

Mom, from another room:

"I think they're in the bathroom!"

Kid from the bathroom which is piled with piles of junk piles:

"Where? Oh, I found them! Hey! I didn't know we had a sink in here!"

Doodle Bug Turns 10 Tomorrow

Doodle, NYC ~ June, 2009

And sadly, I'll be out of town. The good news is that Doodle could give a fat crap that it's her birthday, and we'll celebrate her 10th with an appropriate BLOWGANZA befitting the Queen that she is when I return. 

Happy Birthday, Doodle. I love you.
