Blue Man Group. While this show was on I learned that they will be performing in OK in November.
“What a great gift for Micah’s birthday!” I thought, so Nettl did some research online.
The good thing is that they will be in Tulsa the night following his birthday; I thought it would be fun for Micah, Joel, Nettl and I to go to the show together. The bad thing is that the cost of this would be half of what we pay for rent! Who can afford to put out $150--per person? And no one goes alone to anything, so that’s $600! Damn.
Next up was John Denver Remembered. Oh, go ahead, be smug, but I’ve always loved John Denver and his death devastated me, although I’m not sure why. I think it was because when he died, it was like losing a brother. He was such a positive force because, personal problems aside, he never lost his faith in us. Anyway, it was a good documentary.
Last came The Concert for Bangladesh with George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Leon Russell, Badfinger, Ravi Shankar, and of course, Bon Dylan. I used to own the 8-Track so the performance was very familiar. I’ve also watched it on VHS a number of times. Oh yeah, I never get tired of Billy’s solo of “That’s the Way God Planned It”.
Watching these shows helped me to forget my current bout of depression for a while, except that I had to fight off the feelings of loss over John Denver, George Harrison and Billy Preston, but when I went to bed I told myself that I would feel better when I woke up. I think I do, but it’s tenuous.
Good news for those of you who will be attending the Okie Blogger Roundup in Bricktown next month:
It’s being held the day before my birthday! If anyone wants to go, check out the link above. Pre-registration is only $20; at the door you’ll pay more, and only so many can be allowed attendance. I suggest you register online NOW.
I bought some of that SAM-e yesterday and although it’s too soon for that to work, I do believe (now that the coffee is working its magic) I feel better today. You know what that means? That means I have to get busy on the current website project.
Question: Do you ever think that you’d like to meet your favorite bloggers?
