And yes another thing... You might have noticed I got the nature fever. So I felt a great need to peel of all that is unnecessary and live in the moment and take away the possibility to correct my mistakes. So here is a one take totally live “take it or leave it I will survive take” of my song “Tonight”.

the decorations on stage were super whimsical with an outdoorsy pals feel. owl and little foxes on the keyboards. I don't know if you can tell but "lenka" was inflated in shiny balloons behind her. i was fortunate to sit next to some friendly locals. i find denver to be a VERY friendly city. everywhere i went, whether the santa fe art district or a small lil venue east of downtown, people were introducing themselves to me and happy to chit chat. it was refreshing.

best quote: "maybe if you ate more comfort food, you wouldn't go around shooting people". - hurley (in reference to sayid's hitman stint)
must dvr rewinds: is it just me or was old sun dr. shin's wife in the opening sequence with the dharma taping? and who is that ol' lady giving the 70 hours deadline? is that faraday's mom? where is jill the butcher from? was she an other? thoughts lost fans? so many old losties back again. i can't keep track of them all after all these years.

the boys were merry and full of good cheer. they came prepared with both third and fourth movements of "the blind leading the blind". (there's a good session of blb on daytrotter - second song) i thoroughly enjoyed the new material of a yet to be titled song, which had the bewitching chorus that rang, "these girls, these girls get a room behind us." banjo player noam (pickles) pikelny "sang" weezer's "hash pipe" with lyric book in hand.
the flyer, which you will see if you click on "p-bingo" above, stipulates radiohead and d'angelo material. violinist gabriel (the judge) witcher tackled d'angelo's "one mo'gin" with the help of mr. thile's backup vocals. gabe's falsetto was tribute to d'angelo's soulful voice in my book.
here is chris covering radiohead's "faust arp"

ll was sporting shades. peeve of shar's to be wearing shades in a club. that's ridiculous. i prefer old school ll versus new school yoked ll, thus the chosen portrait to the right. rock that chain. so ll is playing the hip hop inauguration ball in dc on the 19th. if you are the crazies migrating to dc next weekend, that's an option.

doesn't tess look familar? she's the bond gal that sadly died soaked in oil from QOS. also familiar, if you are a masterpiece geek like myself, the gentleman who plays alec was dr. zhivago in the last adaption staring one ms. kiera knightley. hans matheson plays a devilish cad after the fair tess. poor tess! she had the best comeback line - "i feel nothing for you. you are just dust and ashes." that's eff you in victorian times. i'm nervous to watch part two next week. doesn't look like a happy ending.
reason shar should eat her words: arizona 30, atlanta 24. so in a post last week, shar might have said something about the cardinals being unworthy of representing the NFC west. yeeeah, they kinda came through yesterday. i was not expecting that at all. so glad pigskin pick'ems end after the regular season.
sorely missed game of the weekend: san diego versus indy. sad, sad i missed this must see match-up. i blame swoon and lbb. all i saw was LT warming up at qualcomm. heard he didn't play the second half, but it came down to OT and a 22-yard touchdown run for darren sproules. wish i saw how it all panned out.
better than expected performance: minnesota vikings. with most of their defensive line out, i was expecting brian westbrook to run wild this game. they were able to contain him for most of the game until he got that 71-yard TD in the fourth. good try vikings. shar's looking forward to next weekend's match-up between the giants and eagles.
old timey dreaminess! he was actually sitting next to us upstairs preshow grabbing a brew, but his shorn faux hawk threw me off. LBB rocked it. christian's headbobbing resulted in glasses flinging moments. chad stomped out the cello. the crowd cheered, "more cello!" lbb really is ab fab live. my canadian pal julie concurs.
