I quote Joseph Wooten when I say “So funky it’ll make a dead man say ‘uh!’”
A doozy indeed.
I started last week with an adventure up to see Paul Simon and Sting in Chicago.
It was a lot of sleeping…
…a lot of gas station stops…
…and two of music legends onstage from very far away
Followed the next day by a stick-splitting set in Lexington…
…and a friendly welcome from a fellow Nashville citizen on the drive home at 6 AM on Friday morning.
Can’t wait/am scared to find out what the rest of this week has in store!
A farming study apparently shows that cows love slow jams. But is it really so surprising that slow, sultry music encourages cows to submit more easily to milking? [Insert obvious sexual joke here.]
Thanks once again to Alan Cross for finding the important stories.
Gigs with new songs this weekend, which means I’m in full-on learning mode today. It’s looks kinda like this:
With lots of coffee.
I came across this amazing tidbit of info on Twitter today, appropriately posted on President’s Day:
There are so many great, weird things about the people who have become POTUS and I find it endlessly fascinating. Not only was Tyler gettin' busy into is older years, but he was also the first VP to take over when a sitting President kicked the bucket in office. William Henry Harrison died 30 days into his term (!!!) handing Tyler the seat and the super supportive nickname of “His Accidency” from his detractors.
If you’d rather enjoy your day off learning more useful things or watching the new season of House of Cards, that sounds pretty good, too.
