And I still haven’t met Mark Lowry

Whelp, I'm three for three you guys. I have had three chances to meet Mr. Lowry in the past five years and I struck out every time. -- I don't mean that nearly as stalkerish as that sounds, I promise. I'm just a fan and would simply like to meet him and thank him for [...]

Music Monday: After Midnight, JJ Cale

I still cannot believe JJ is gone. I had a hard time figuring out which song or video I wanted to post for you guys. I mean the man was a brilliant musician. I thought about posting Mama Don't and then I came across this. It's just simply JJ well, him and Leon Russell and [...]

Easy? No. Worth it? Yes!

Sane women do not cut 14 inches off their hair, purchase $600 worth of MAC makeup, pack a car and drive 15 hours in one day for a three-day comedy contest. Especially if they've got less than 50 hours of stage time as a stand up comic and one book of jokes under their belt. [...]
