FINALLY FRIDAY!!!!!!

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Friday, November 21, 2008

Remember to come by Monday...we will have music from two new artists and also some music news bout some famous musicians...

Will also be reviewing two new Christmas Albums in the next few weeks and giving them away also! I am actually listening to one of them right now and it is HAWT! Well, as Hawt as a Christmas Album can get that is!


Also taking care of a friend who sent an email asking if I cold collect a grouping of the song "Please Come Home For Christmas"...found 13 versions that are being burned and packaged...I LOVES spreading the joy of TUNEAGE!


This is a new one floating around the bloggosphere, with JAY of "Cynical Ba**ard" and SONGBIRD of "The Ice Box" both posting it yesterday...seemed like a fun thing to do on a Friday, so...simply answer the questions in the comment area:
1. Who are you?
2. Are we friends?
3. Something I have and YOU want?
4. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.
5. Describe me in one word.
6. What was your first impression of me?
7. Do you still think that way about me now?
8. What reminds you of me?
9. If you could give me anything what would it be?
10. How well do you know me?
11. How do you see me in the future?
12. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn’t?
13. Are you going to post this in your blog and see what I say about you?


New Year's Eve Dinner is sold out! LOL...

We will be 10 having a six-course meal that will begin at 6:00pm for cocktails, first course served at 7:00pm and then one course each hour until dessert/coffee/champagne/liqueurs/booze at midnight!

I have already begun to prepare the menu. Y'all will have to wait until after the holiday to find out what it is, but I will tell you the courses and they are:
1) Appetizer
2) Soup
3) Pasta
4) Salad
5) Main
6) Dessert

Been 3 years since I have been able to do this and I am PSYCHED!


DANG..almost forgot to mention (AGAIN!!!) that last weekend, Nancy's youngest Peter got his first deer. He brought home some venison, so we will be cooking some of that this weekend.

AND...her oldest, Ernie is starring in the HS production of "Beowulf (on a budget)" this weekend.

This his first attempt at theater and he was awarded the lead! I go tomorrow, front row seat with the video camera charged and ready.


OK, weekend music for y'all...

Have a great one!

This is The String Cheese Incident...a jam band that came together in the 90's and found a niche putting on shows at ski resorts, summer festivals and small venues. Band members are Michael Kang (acoustic/electric mandolin, electric guitar, and violin), Michael Travis (drums and percussion), Bill Nershi (acoustic guitar, lap steel guitar, and electric slide guitar), Kyle Hollingsworth (piano, organ, Rhodes, and accordion), and Keith Moseley (bass guitar).

The band has essentially broken up a few years ago with each of the members doing side projects, but they tend to end up playing the same summer fests and areas, so there are times they are on stage together.

This is their version of the classic "Orange Blossom Special", recorded at the Warfield Theater in San Francisco, CA:

ENJOY....
