Riverdance Revisted

Remember the first time you saw Riverdance? I do. Wow. But then Michael Flatley went out on his own and at some point started believing all the reviews about him and his amazing feet. As Moses observed regarding prosperity, "...Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked" (no pun intended.) So here's an homage to Flatley (sort of) and the best "father/son" act I've seen to date. You can enjoy the video here.


During the 1970s and early 1980s, Larry Carlton was a busy session musician in Los Angeles, making up to five hundred recordings a year, including albums by Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, Billy Joel, Quincy Jones, the Partridge Family, and Charly GarcĂ­a's Clics Modernos. His loopy, dazzling guitar work on Steely Dan's "Kid Charlemagne" from their 1976 LP The Royal Scam has been listed as the third best guitar solo on record by Rolling Stone Magazine.Enjoy.

My Skiing Buddy

Thanks Bekah!

Out of the mouth of babes...

The text is a little small, so here's some help with the dialogue between Jason and Roger Foxtrot:

Jason: "My bank desperately needs and infusion of capital"
Jason: "I was hoping you could give me one or two million dollars."
Jason: "I know you probably can't really afford that. But I figure you could just put it on a credit card.
Roger: "Remind me why we encourage our kids to watch the news."
Jason: "Dad, some guy from Visa's on the phone."
