My son the Rocker and his sweetheart Ms Cait were here over the weekend. We defied Gravity in IMAX 3D, then descended over 100 feet to another eerie landscape in the caverns of Luray, VA. I pretty much knew from the moment he was born, this baby boy liked action and adventure. What i didn’t know when his band, Parlor Mob, broke up last year was that he’d not only pursue music for film, but he’d continue to support and play music with his friends in the burgeoning arts scene of Asbury Park and beyond…
All the way to Brooklyn this Friday! While cooking another one of his favorite dishes, he casually asked me if I liked Norah Jones. “Yes,” I gushed like a teenage mutant fan, “I love her!” Well it seems Norah’s got a side project, it’s her band Puss N Boots. And he’ll be onstage with her Friday night at the Bowery Electric, since he’ll be playing guitar for an old friend, Nicole Atkins. You remember Nicole, I called her a “… stunning performer with an incredible voice.” https://mountainmornings.net/2011/05/22/hello-apocalypse-no/ And Nicole is headlining!
It’s times like these when I really miss my Jersey Shore life: hoping a train to the city for a concert or a play; walking my Corgis past egrets nesting in trees; waiting for the drawbridge in Sea Bright to deliver us to the beach. Small pleasures that amounted to a life filled with possibility. But I can’t complain, at least I’ll stop complaining right now. Just because I caught a doozy of a cold from my lovely husband Bob, and I’ll have to miss my son’s side project with Nicole, doesn’t mean I can’t fly away in my mind, and play a little Norah on my old fashioned CD player;
Come away with me in the night
Come away with me
And I will write you a song
Come away with me on a bus
Come away where they can’t tempt us
With their lies
Lyrics from <a href=”http://www.elyrics.net”>eLyrics.net</a>
I wonder who was tempting her with their lies? Because I can’t even watch the news anymore, and all the lying going on about who’s holding our government hostage. Wake up. It’s about 40 perverse Republicans who think they can ignore the constitution and walk us off the edge of solvency. I think these guys need to be furloughed without pay. And since they seem to operate with impunity, we need to fix the gerrymandering that created these districts of bloody red zealots.
Let’s teach them how to live without benefits, with part-time work and side projects to make ends meet. That would be a real life lesson for Ted Cruz and his cronies. We need leaders like those WWII vets who stormed the monuments in DC. http://www.politico.com/story/2013/10/ted-cruz-blasted-by-angry-gop-colleagues-government-shutdown-97753.html
