Then I'd be Richer than Snot, right? lol or well, at least richer than I was with a nose full of snot. I have improved some, I am still having hard nights, waking up coughing and all, but it is getting a little better. The gig Saturday night was tough. Nobody showed up of course, and the only people that WERE there were Ubee's employees and some college kids at the bar shouting "METALLICA!!!" AND "RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS!!" at us. It was a little disconcerting, but I marched on, vocally speaking.
We don't play Metallica, we don't play the Chili Peppers, We're NOT a cover band. Presently we've nothing but originals in our set (this is exceedingly rare). When you're a band that is not that well known, your originals are basically considered nothing but "art", and nobody really wants to come out and hear them. "Art" does not book shows, or draw much of a crowd. Memphis is a place where people want to hear the familiar, the historic, I guess they rock to what they know. When you're different, or 'Experimental' as we might be called, it's slim pickins' I suppose.
So I droned on through the set, with a scratchy throat and nearly lost my voice near the end of the second set. The place was a ghost town, the guy who booked the show had already flown the coop to catch another event he was due to make an appearance at. We cut a couple songs from the second set, and hauled our asses out of there, I was just relieved it was over.
After that, I spent Sunday recuperating as it seemed to make my voice worse than before, but I've been taking medicine, and hope to shake this by Thanksgiving.
Other than gigging, nothing else interesting came out of the weekend. Last night I caught up on the latest episode of "True Blood", and really have enjoyed that show, more than I thought I would. My husband and I ordered out some sushi rolls and kind of hit the sack early, got up for some Monday morning Cardio and I'm looking forward to this short, 3 day work week to say the least.
Hope all of you guys are doing well, and I'm sorry for my little hiatus, just haven't felt up to much with my "Unholy Crud" condition. By the way, I am still falling head over heels for this bird, "Snowball the Dancing Cockatoo".
So since it's a rainy Monday here in the River City, I'll share two more Snowball Videos. I give you 1. Snowball Dances To Huey Lewis, and 2. Snowball Rocks With "Another One Bites The Dust"
Don't forget, tomorrow is the Weekly Words Challenge with the fabulous Mrs. Tink Hoop!, wherein we tackle the words "Perfect" and "Flawed". C U DEN!!!
