I have read that people who call them casseroles are considered uppity and are probably Episcopalians.  ;D



Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Happy to oblige friend. Less than a week until I see Pink Martini in concert at Red Rocks! Oh, and of course there's the main attraction, Diana Krall, too. The guy I invited to come with me gave me the CD "Hey Eugene" but I haven't listened to it yet.

I had a moment of panic last night: What if Ari Shapiro doesn't come with the group to Denver? I'm sure his NPR schedule is very demanding. Oh well, I will still enjoy the concert.

Sorry to say that I doubt Mr. Shapiro will be joining you.

He is slated to guest star with PM at the Hollywood Bowl in September, I believe.

In any case, you'll have a wonderful time with both PM and the lovely Diana Krall. Enjoy!

Well, I just can't figure out why Ari doesn't put Red Rocks at the top of his list! It's in the news since it was named a national historic monument this week. Is the Hollywood Bowl a national monument? I think not! The Beatles performed there, I saw one of Stevie Ray Vaughn's last concerts there, and Crosby Stills Nash & Young. I'm also going to see Mark Knopfler there in September. And after our get-together at the Fort, Chrissi, Monika, Sophia and I drove by there! That's it, I have to get the message to him!!

The concert was indescribable! Surely I'm not biased, but is there any venue in the world that is as beautiful and as acoustically perfect as Red Rocks Amphitheater in Golden, Colorado?? It was Pink Martini's first performance there and they were totally up for it with a big, but not overpowering sound. One of their first numbers was "Sympatheque" from their first album. Lead singer China Forbes described how some words in the song were taken from a French poem and later they were sued for copyright infringement, flown to Paris for a hearing, and afterwards the people suing them asked them for their autographs!

Glad you enjoyed the show!
