ok. Last week's Beer for Peace worked out really really well. Think I'm kidding? NO CIVIL war in Iran... is there?
So I am gonna do it again..... I sent out a quick email and my very good buddy, Keith, has agreed to come to
and play a few licks while I attempt to get some divergent personalities like....
........and Rush Limbaugh and ...
to just get together and have some popcorn and peanuts and just discuss like rational human beings what we can all do to make the world a better place.
Now I may have better things to do... In fact I do! Of late, my esteemed buddy, close friend, occasional confidant and son.... Bubba-Boy Wonder
... has been rather morose thinking of his future.
"Dad, I graduated over TWO months ago.... and I still don't know what to do with the rest of my life!!!!"
Well, those are very grave concerns and ones that should be taken seriously.
His first serious attempt at solving the rest of his life was to get in a car with a couple of buddies and drive t0
Now, I have heard Austin is a cool city, that there is good beer and music& such..... but the recent economic times make a road trip to a Third-World Country like Texas a bit unreasonable. And I am pretty sure I had talked him out of that idea
So I am attempting to have him join me for a couple of beers Saturday afternoon with my other esteemed guests.... like Michael Samwich and Adolf Busch-Lite
and Maureen Dowd... Al Gore
I would e-vite my friend Dorothy, too, but I am pretty sure she is still dead. Anyways..............
The thing of it is.... my son is very serious about his impending career...... what ever that may be. He has been offered a couple of gigs doing sound design for 'indy' short films.... which means...'no money'.
He was going to go to Iowa .... a notion prompted by a small blurb he had read.....The first week of August has been designated as World Breastfeeding Week. The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) encourages Iowans to use this week to increase awareness of the importance of breastfeeding.
But I convinced him that it probably was not a 'flimable' opportunity for a sound design engineer.
Then.... out of the blue ( or green or red or purple) he has an offer to go to
and do sound design on a play for a couple of months. I guess the playwright has done some Broadway stuff and had won some awards or shit in France.
So unless there is a fly in the ointment... the kid is moving to Philly for a bit, and
I somehow I get the feeling that when all is said and done.....
.... none of my invited guests will show up and
... I'm just gonna sit around and shoot the breeze with Bill-a Lang...... I think he owes me a couple of beers.
The Kid is not even gone...... and I miss him already.
