The Underground Pirate Ship has set sail once more. This time with Fran!
She was a great guest star and when you hear her laughing at something off to the side, that's at me. I was a podcast observer. Fran was Scott's guest. Listen to that here: The Underground Pirate Ship #4 They talk about jizz breathing dragons. What else.
My friend Matt wrote an advice column for a local advertising blog. It's hilarious. Read that HERE.
I also went to a show Friday afternoon. (It was the all-ages show. The teens are kicked out of downtown at 9.) My friend Judd was playing and my friend Josh's brother was also playing. I baby sat him when he was just a wee one!
First up was Chris. Christopher the Conquered when with band, but this was a solo act. He was so awesome! Just him and his piano. Singing his heart out. Great voice and then he got up and stood at the front of the stage and sang loud, and good without a microphone mid-song.
A man and his keyboard. His regular band is less low-key, but I just loved it. You can check him out HERE. He's one of the top 27 hot things in Central Iowa right now. They weren't in order of hottest, but I bet he's top 5.
And my friend Judd played. I first saw him...year ago at House of Bricks. I walked in and I said to my friend, "this sounds like actual music I would listen to." I'll admit that doesn't often happen at House of Bricks. We talked after the show, he gave me a CD and it was just great. To listen to his stuff, I can't believe I'm linking to myspace, but it's HERE.
And the most exciting thing EVER. Today, Gary showed me my wedding gift. It is one of his amazing teapots. I'll post again when it's in my possession, but if you can't wait to see it like I couldn't wait to see it, check it out HERE. AHH! I love it! I want to take pictures of me throwing a tea party with it. Thank you, Gary.
I'm sure more of my friends will be awesome soon and I'll share all their exciting news with all of you. You're welcome.
