longing for a future perfect kiss

I saw the Old 97's last night, for the second time this week - this time at the Music Hall in Tarrytown, NY. I didn't take my camera because I didn't think I would be close enough to get any good pictures. As it turns out, I was in my usual elbows on the stage position (just a bit farther stage left, but still in a place that Rhett and I could look longingly at each other). So, yeah, I wish I'd had my camera. Coulda shoulda woulda...I took these shots with my phone. They played my twitter request (Indefinitely), which was lovely of them. Thanks Rhett. mmmmmmmm...Rhett.

this is more than I can tolerate
the kind of pain you've got to medicate
I can't remember why I couldn't wait
to get so close to you

hello out there in ebook land

So apparently Art Quilts at Play is now an ebook. Nobody tells me anything. Actually, I knew it was an ebook, I even recorded a little video clip for it - screen printing (see above) and acting all goofy (see below). Now you wanna buy it, don'tcha?

loving you is a test

I saw (and heard) the Old 97's last night at Maxwell's in Hoboken NJ. They have 4 dates at there, so they're doing a "no repeat" engagement - different songs every night with no repeats (obviously) excluding Timebomb, which they haveta do 'cause if they didn't we wouldn't know when to go home. It was wicked 'cause they played stuff you don't usually get to hear like Miss Molly (oh oh oh), Ivy, Adelaide and my funeral song, Weightless (yes, I want an Old 97's song played at my funeral). It was a rockin' good time and I can't wait 'til the next time I get to see them...which is Friday.

[I'm cheating - this isn't from Maxwell's]

I remember when
I had you and you had so much promise then
promised me that you would never leave again
to be broken
you were made

On Saturday my nephew married his college sweetheart. It was an incredibly beautiful wedding - the ceremony was at Pennyfield Lock in Potomac (Maryland) and the reception was in the bumper car pavilion at Glen Echo Park, in Glen Echo (Maryland). Here's what it looked like...

it's not very far

from Sulphur to Sugarcane

The women in Poughkeepsie
Take their clothes off when they're tipsy
But I hear in Ypsilanti
They don't wear any panties...
