Why yes it is. Yes indeed, which can only mean one thing – time to hear some tunes in The Snark. Oh stop your complaining, Snuppy will be back in fine form on Monday. It’s just that the black bean veggie burger that we split over lunch yesterday has taken its toll on her and she needs to rest. Not like I don’t but, that’s not really important it seems.
On the topic of our Road Trip, it was not unlike the field trip that you saw in the French and Saunders snippet complete with dance routine – and calling the waitress – “Miss”. The best part about it was meeting The Belle of the Brawl – Sar. She was a breath of fresh air and we were in Connecticut so the air was already a little fresher for me. Needless to say, I drove home exhilarated. And what day is not grand when I get to also hang out with my NBFF Snuppy and meet Bobo (in both human and canine form). A definite good time had by all. We might have still been there talking and laughing if we had been in a diner, and well I guess if we didn’t have families that expected to see us again. So needy that way.
Let’s get back on point here, for I promise there is one (I love when I channel Snuppy). The band that I am going to play takes their moniker from someone whose songs they covered. They got together playing small club sessions in New York and decided (I guess) that it was too good to limit to hipsters who actually still got out to hear live music in small settings.
You will all immediately recognize the leading lady in the group as Norah Jones (yes that 50 grammy winning Norah Jones) along with some crack New York singer/songwriters, notably Richard Julian and well my son has stolen the cd cover so now I’m too lazy to flip flop and hey, if you’re really interested, you’ll check them out.
I don’t go out on a limb often, but if you don’t immediately tap your toes or get wowed by both the originals and covers on this cd, I’m coming to check your pulse. I’m not a trained professional so if you are indeed dead, it may take me time to figure that out, just so you know.
On to the jukebox, don’t worry I have plenty of quarters because you really NEED to listen to the whole thing:
Now come back with your toes-a-tapping and tell me which tune is your fave.
