Although the now LA-based Burgess looks like an impostor in his own band, it's almost beautiful to watch him as - arms flapping around -the 41-year-old commands the crowd like an orchestral conductor. During a glorious double whammy of headrushing recent single Oh! Vanity and classic The Only One I Know, it is all too much for one girl, who rushes the stage and is rewarded with a dance with Burgess. For a few moments, they remain deep in conversation. Maybe she is asking, "Where did you get that haircut?"!

R.I.P., Mr. Korman


that we did for a wedding show several months ago


Love the orange and pink combo- bouquets from a wedding we did a few weeks ago... damn Stargazer lilies took FOREVER to open up. Argh.
V.v. pretty, though.
The bride's-

The bridesmaid's-

Oh for GOD'S sake

it's just "the river" to we locals.

There is something about the Mississippi's very nature, its wilfulness, and its sheer size - 2,320 miles long, from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico, and at its widest point 4,500ft across - that demands veneration. And indeed, the Mississippi is a river that has been sung about often - by Janis Joplin, the Hold Steady, Hank Snow, Mavis Staples, Jimmie Rodgers and many others. It's been the "Ol' Man" that "jus' keeps rollin' along" for Paul Robeson, and it has shined "like the national guitar" for Paul Simon.


In the new Julia Quinn book, The Lost Duke of Wyndham, one of the characters uses the word "truthiness."

Not historically accurate, yet MADE OF AWESOME.

want to work on your being-a-welcome-guest technique....

2. start drinking heavily
