Our Top Stories Tonight

First! A wee bit of alliteration:

Where were you wending when you wore that wide lapeled waistcoat?

...To the El Rio? To hear True Margrit, perchance? We sure did have a blast at our gig with Judea Eden Band, Dream Boat Where Are You, Julie Rosenthal, and Patty Boss. We debuted a whole slew (i.e. many) new songs including but not limited to: "Fly it Like a Flag", "50,000 Names", "syllable" (that's the working title--soon there will be lyrics replacing the gibberish). Debut, by the way, is being used liberally--we played many of the selfsame tunes last night in Sacramento on a bill with the Julie Meyers Band at the Fox and Goose.

Meanwhile...here's a headline I saw:

"Mt. Everest to replace Nepal king on currency note"

It says in the article that the king isn't very popular--But I guess Mt Everest is. I do love that mountain, myself.

Mmmmm, altitude sickness!!!

Other news: I 'm reading Macbeth (oops, I mean the Scottish play) and I noticed that Macduff utters the phrase "fell swoop" in it (and lots of other famous catchy quotes about spots, brief candles, and so on). Is there nothing Shakespeare didn't invent? Oh, Will. Why weren't you with us when we wanted for wisdom. Actually... you are, even now your language infects our brains like a beneficial virus that continues to grow 400+ years hence. Oh for a muse of fire to ascend your brightest heavenly inventions like iPods, velcro and the internet. Will these trinkets last as long as Hamlet?
