Fair Music??
Posted on: 08/11/2014 04:59 PM

Hello KoG! Didja go, didja go, didja go - and hear some good music at your county fair? I went Friday and didn't hear any music at all. Was surprised that they didn't have a group on the mall stage during dinnertime. HomeEc displays were a bit limited. One kid made a bunch of duct tape costumes and those were really quite good. I enjoyed the hand-crocheted items! Beautiful. Hardly any photos of the mountain. But I saw some animal photos that were inventive, as well as some color photos that were just stunning! Arts & Crafts were interesting, as usual. Not many entries by kids, which is unfortunate. I saw one tole painting entry, one leather-work entry and one woodwork entry that were each very good. I discovered Dutch chickens! Never thought about that before. In the animal barns, I petted lots of pigs, goats, sheep and one whole cow! I felt sorry for the goats/sheep because the fumes from the tractor pull blew right in their barn! The Commercial and Ag/Hort buildings were boring. I only saw 8 people I know! That was surprising!

Hi S - I'm sorry that I haven't posted about my attendance of two music shows at the local fair this past week, but I will this weekend. I did attend the shows of country music singers Dwight Yoakam and Joe Nichols. One was just fair (no pun intended, LOL) and the other was excellent. In the meantime, I'll let you guess which performer was which. I did not attend the first night's concert which was the double-header of Night Ranger and 38 Special. I spoke with two people who did attend. Funny that one person said Night Ranger was the better of the two while the other person said 38 Special clearly was.

Hello KoG. There you are! I was afraid the fair did you in! Well, I listened to both of your dudes. Vocally, they're both excellent. I prefer Joe Nichols' voice. As to which one did the better job when you saw them in concert, I have NO idea. I'll tell you one thing, though; I must be getting REAL old, 'cuzz I just don't dig their music videos. Pardon me, but they're trying to look like "bad ass dudes," and I get real turned off by that! Equally abhorrent to me are the female performers who are giving that "come and get me" look! Is there something WRONG with looking and acting "good?" Isaiah 5:20!!!

Be that as it may, I'll await your review, teedoo, teedoo, teedoo!

S - Here is my review of the two concerts I saw at the local county fair, but I first want to say that writing a review to me is like having to do a book report back in our school days. I never enjoyed doing book reports. Nonetheless:

The first concert that I attending was that of Joe Nichols. The concerts were scheduled for 9:30 PM following the rodeo, but the rodeo seldom concludes by 9:30. It's more like at 10:00. Anyway, I arrived on the fairgrounds about 8:30. I visited some of the exhibits, but I declined the livestock section because the smell was just too unpleasant to put it nicely.

It had rained on my way up, and I knew I should have brought along my baseball cap, but I forgot. The cap was mainly to keep the rain off my glasses since the concerts are held outside. Fortunately, the rain was only a light drizzle by the time I arrived and had stopped shortly afterwards. With a whole hour on my hands before the Nichols concert, I visited various areas of the fairground before I headed towards the concert area to find very few people there. At first I thought maybe the concert had been canceled. After speaking to one of the people setting up the stage, I was told it was still on but if lightning returned, the area on the ground in front of the stage would have to be cleared out due to safety concerns.

I staked out my spot. I decided to stand in front on the stage but to the left. It appeared to me that it would be the best area to see everything happening on stage. One would have thought being directly in front and center would have been better but not so being that there was about a three foot gap between the edge of the front of the stage and the railing. Plus, in the center two security guards would be posted. So, from my chosen place on the front left, I would be about 20 feet from the center mike, and I wouldn't have to look past the security guys.

Shortly, other attendees started arriving. The front started to fill. The concert started about 9:50. My hour-and-twenty minutes of standing felt only about half that time as I chatted with fellow attendees. The drizzle had stopped and the concert soon started. As Joe Nichols and his band took the stage, wouldn't you know it, the drizzle started again. But, fortunately, after the first song it stopped and never started again.

I think one of the first things an attendee notices about the band is what they're wearing or at least it is for me. I know it's all about the music but I thought the band members could have at least dressed a bit better especially Joe Nichols himself. I expected JN to be wearing blue jeans and cowboy boots, of course, being that he's a country music performer, but at least a nice shirt instead of a old black t-shirt. It gave me the impression like as if he had dressed to mow the lawn. His band members were dressed about the same way as he was him.

I thought he was energetic, and he put on a good show. I, however, was not impressed enough to see him again if I had the opportunity. What I seemed to notice the most about his singing is that he isn't (at least during this performance) able to carry a note well for an extended period. He never introduced his band which I thought was odd. I had never seen that before.

On my way back home after the concert, I was listening to a radio station from another state. As I drove within a block of being home, a JN song came on. The next morning on my way to work and within five minutes of my drive, another JN song was being played. I thought that was quite coincidental.

On to the next night's concert. I was looking forward to seeing Dwight Yoakam even though I don't own a single CD of his - not even a single song on any CD of any kind. I just knew he had a lot of hits that I liked and was a big name during the 80s and 90s. Plus, he was a decent actor in a few movies he had performed in.

I had planned to stand in the exact spot for the Yoakam concert as I did for Nichols'. It was an excellent spot to see all the action that was happening on stage. I had never stood in front of a stage before while attending a concert as I had done the night before - never had the desire. But, I soon learned that's the only way to see a concert - up front and personal - if permitted.

I left the house for my 20 minute drive to the fairgrounds. I was determined to get my same spot as the night before. So determined in fact that I arrived on the grounds two hours before the scheduled time of 9:30 PM! I brought along a child-size folding chair to sit on as I waited, but as it turned out, I never used it. As I rounded the corner to see if my spot would be available (of course it would be because no other nut would be crazy enough to arrive so early, right?) Well, actually, wrong. There were about eight others, but they was positioned directly in the center which was great for me.

It was a beautiful night and about 75 degrees with a slight breeze which felt great. 7:30 surprisingly turned into 9:30 quite quickly. Chatting with those around me caused the time to really fly by. I especially enjoyed visiting with an upcoming college senior who had spent his summer here working as an intern for the local economic development council. He was from Ohio and would be returning to college there in a few weeks to finish up his major in mass communications. He and I talked about such things as his major, the current news events of this world and our religious beliefs. I was very impressed that he had a good set of morals, and he knew what he wanted to do with his life.

The rodeo had ended and it was about 10:00. Surely Dwight Yoakam and his band were waiting in the trailer behind the stage where the performers usually wait or so I thought. An announcer came on stage to say DY and his band were on the way and for us to hold tight. About 15-20 minutes later, the headlights of a bus could be seen driving up behind the stage. Soon, I could see the glittering from the jackets being worn by several people. It would be about another 15 minutes before the members hit the stage. I believe DY and company were doing a meet-and-greet for radio contest winners back behind the stage where the bus had driven up.

It was probably now 10:30. I'm guessing as I never wear a watch anymore. I know it's strange of me not to wear a watch. Haven't for years.

Comparing Yoakam's set-up on stage compared to Nichols': Yoakam's was very professional-looking while JN's wasn't. There were several stylish white chairs on chrome stands on stage along with a matching white table which had a metal champagne bottle holder on top of it. I could see a bottle of water in it. Interestingly though, I don't recall anyone taking the bottle from the holder. Nor, do I remember seeing DY take a drink during his entire performance.

There was a music stand to the right of the center mike. There were notes on it as I could clearly see two large metal clips attached to the top of the stand. Printed on the front of the bass portion of the drum set was "3 Pears." Its meaning was a total mystery to me at the time. I had eagerly and patiently waited THREE HOURS for the concert and standing all the while. I couldn't believe it...lightning was starting to flicker! I thought, "Really? You can't be serious!" I hoped maybe that the band could at least play a few songs before the storm rolled in.

Finally, the band hit the stage. Including DY, there were five members. Three were dressed in great-looking sequin jackets - the bass player, the keyboardist and the lead guitarist. They looked sharp and professional! DY was wearing a denim jacket with a sequin trim on the bottom decked out with diamond, hearts and spades. He worn cowboy boots with a matching card design on them - ace of spades - if I remember correctly. DY is known for his skin-tight jeans and his lanky legs. To the delight of the female attendees, his jeans were so tight that you could see the outline of the top of his boots underneath.

They played hit-after-hit plus a few covers including CCR's "Who'll Stop The Rain." They also played a song that they recently added according to DY. That, I could tell, was the reason for the music stand. Being up so close, I could see DY glancing at it as he performed. He obviously needed it to help him remember the words. For about the first 30 minutes, they basically played one song after another with very little time in between. My guess was so they could get in as many songs as possible in their allotted time.

About l5 minutes into the concert, a security guy climbed onto the railing directly in front of me causing me to step back as he turned on his flashlight and pointed it at a male attendee recording the show with a video recorder. I was shocked that he loudly ordered him to stop recording and to turn it off. All the while, many others were recording the show with their i-phones. There obviously was a difference in why one was permitted while the other wasn't (but not obvious enough for me to know why even now). That occurred twice with two different attendees.

It ended up as a beautiful night of country music performed flawlessly by a big name of the 80s and 90s. DY was very entertaining when he would dance and spin around in circles as playing his guitar.

I was told by my co-worker that her daughter's boyfriend who works at the local airport said the band arrived there after the concert at about 1:30 AM to fly out on a private plane. I did see on the internet that they were scheduled to perform the next night in another state.

In closing, "3 Pears" is the name of DY's 2012 album with the same title track. Below is a link from YouTube plus a very quirky song entitled, "Waterfall," which was also played. DY jokingly said it's a strange song, but he's a strange person. Why the title "3 Pears"? I'll let you google why.

Oops, can't get the links to work. I'll try them again later.

KoG, other than the fact that you turned in your assignment WAY late, I must give you an A+++ for details! You've got me beat by a LONGshot! Now I notice all those details you mentioned, but it's kinda like, "in one ear/eye and out the other." Down through the years, I learned if I don't have opportunity to discuss those details on the spot, I forget them. Though an introvert, I don't process everything internally. And I hated book reports too. Seemed like a waste of time.

I must mention, however, you made some schpelling mischtooks. In re-reading some of my posts - following numerous proofreadings before SAVING, I must mention - I ain't doin' so hot in the schpelling department myself! Chalk it up to old age. Minus the schpelling mischtooks, you would've had an A++++++++++. (Just a little incentive for next time, eh?)

I still prefer Joe Nichols' voice to Dwight Yoakum's - with my limited experience gained through watching YouTube. I didn't hear intonation problems with him, but he does NOT hold any one note for long, that's clear. Whether it's because he doesn't want to or because intonation problems come blaring out, I don't know. He kinda has an Eric Heiden look to him. Just LOVE Eric Heiden's smile. Joe Nichols' smile is sly-er. He's got the looks. Dwight Yoakum was in another line!

Yoakum's keyboard-ist looks something like Ted Bluechel from the Association. At least his dark hair, long sideburns and hairstyle remind me of the late 60's and Bluechel in particular. Their clothing is definitely Liberace style. Too flamboyant for my tastes, but I don't like performers looking like they just walked in from a cow pasture either! And just in case SOMEBODY should venture over here and read this, Rich Campbell usually wears a red shirt, Bill Worrell usually wears a white shirt and dark vest, Dewey usually wears a dark shirt that seems to have been impeccably ironed and Mr. Beckley usually wears... I have looked at concert photos/videos this year and noticed with amusement that several times he's been caught wearing the proverbial white, long-sleeved shirt, which makes him disappear behind the 12-string ESPECIALLY when the spotlight is on. However, at both concerts I've attended, the proverbial white shirt has been carefully subdued and I've been able to find him, despite the spotlight??? TeeHee.

So you don't like the smell of MANURE? Do not EVER go to Switzerland, then! During the summer months, the whole country smells like poop, because the farmers mix it with water and spray it on their fields. Glorious! I love aminals (sic) so I have habituated myself to the smell in order to pet the little creatures.

Gen, in her review of the recent Vence, France, concert, said she stood near the stage. I think I could do that for an hour-and-a-half. But I'd need to find the ladies' room right before and possibly immediately after. I drink a LOT. (water) I have a "Think Pink" folding camp stool I take to baseball games. It's not big enough to fit my posterior. However, it does give the legs and feet a respite. Although I'm on my feet at work (up to 6 hours) I am moving around. I don't STAND well. Good music can take away the discomfort, however. Turns out I was fighting a virus at CalExpo, which commenced to aggravate my shoulder, arm and neck. I was in a lot of pain, but didn't notice it much during the concert. Next day it was moving into a migraine. So I took a tylenol. But I hear what you mean about being "up front and personal." I had a great, center-stage view at CalExpo, but being up against the stage at Tahoe couldn't be surpassed! Next venue is 4th row, aisle seat, slightly left of center.

Only 20 minutes to your fairgrounds! I had 45. The wait definitely goes by faster when you have people to chat with. I enjoy chatting! A radiology tech who doesn't wear a watch? Incredible. I went without a watch for 2 years and used my cell phone instead. But, in sunlight, I can't read even the time, let alone anything else - without glasses. So, before Tahoe, I invested in a $10 WalMart special and I love it, except the band is WAY too big for my wrist. Maybe before the Canyonville concert I'll find somebody who will take a link out.

After America's concerts in Arizona and Las Vegas were shortened due to rain, Dewey jokingly referred to them as being "Drought busters!" Then it rained the whole CalExpo concert. It apparently rained at their Kentucky State Fair concert also! Now you're saying you had rain, but no America. Perhaps it's music FANS who are responsible for all the precipitation??? (And I doubt seriously that the female fans were delighted in seeing jeans that were so tight they could see cowboy boottops. They weren't looking there). Ahem.

I'm glad you enjoyed the 2nd concert so much. After going to Pikiwedia, I still don't know WHY "3 pears." It's a song on a very high-charting album by the same name. That's all I learned.

Now, after reading your review, I can't WAIT until you attend an America concert! I'm sure I'll learn all kinds of things that I never focused on before - or at least don't remember. I hope you're having a good weekend. I borrowed some quilting tools yesterday, came home and practiced cutting, sewing and pressing squares of fabric. I did a right smart job, if I do say so myself! Not perfect, but quite good. I keep running outside to re-charge my solar batteries, which keep me warm. My house is at 72 degrees and it's 96 outside. My lettuce and Swiss chard aren't growing well. So I moved the planters. My cucumbers are noticeably growing, on a daily basis. Tomatoes are keeping me happy. I've got tiny string beans coming on. Still haven't planted my favorite carrots. I read my Bible outside (Kindle.) I answered several emails. I will swim later, probably - in what's left of our lake. Pathetic.

P.S. What Bible translation do you read, and why? Just curious.

S - King James but I must admit that I haven't read the Bible in quite a while. Very odd, I know, especially for someone who really likes talking about end time events and Bible prophecy. Do you believe in a rapture - a catching away of the saints/believers? I do and I think it's prior to the 7-year tribulation. I think we're so close to the catching away that it would shock and perhaps frighten many people because of their not being ready.


Not only do I not wear a watch, I don't even have a cell phone! I bet I have over 25 watches in the house. I was a sucker at garage sales whenever I saw one for a buck or less if the design caught my eye.

I have been to Switzerland. Don't remember any funky smells there though. It has been about 30 years ago, however. I do take your word for it. Also visited France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, England and Italy. Well, I've never been to Spain, but I kinda like the music.

I like the Association (as well as the Happenings). Favorite Association song - "Windy."

KoG, Mornin' to Ya! KJV, eh? I like the New KJV if I'm gonna memorize. But I haven't done that in eons. I should, because it would improve my brain! (Sorry for the interruption, but I was freezing inside and had to go out to recharge my solar batteries). All right, let me ask the all-important question, KoG: Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? I went through a stage in the last few years where I wasn't reading my Bible daily. I had read it faithfully for over 30 years and was feasting! But my norm was Psalms and Proverbs. As rich as they are, and as complete of a message they give, I was getting tired of reading the same-old, same-old. So I tried reading the gospels, the 5 first books of the OT, the prophets or the epistles. I got a lot out of that, but nothing grabbed me like Psalms and Proverbs originally had. My new thing is to read a chapter of Proverbs a day, out of the Amplified, Message and my French Bible - all on Kindle. Some parts of the Message bring the point home with no doubts. Others I feel he missed the intention. The French and Amplified are surprisingly similar. Of course, the Amplified is based on the KJV, adding in the Greek and Hebrew nuances, and taking from the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Anyhow, I encourage you to read daily! If one loves Jesus, one wants to know what He says! And I surely do believe in the rapture! But you know what I tell people? I tell them they can believe anything they want, and if it corresponds with truth, then they've done well! As for WHEN the rapture? Years ago we studied a marvelous book, "The Pre-Wrath Rapture of the Church" written by Marvin (maybe it was Martin) Rosenbloom, a converted Jew. I highly recommend the book! It's mid-trib, to use the vernacular. It's a bit over my head. I cannot go back and study the original Hebrew and Greeks texts to see if the dude's pullin' the wool over my eyes. But he refers to MANY OT and NT verses and ties them all together in a way that makes sense to me. I'm more concerned about being included in the rapture than I am about when it's going to take place! Have you ever read the "Left Behind" series? I only saw the 1st movie and it was pointed enough!

Gerry Beckley collects eyeglasses and white shoes. KoG collects watches! I collect rocks. They're free!!! Notice I said, ROCKS, not crystals? And you don't have a cell phone? Even Ellen has a cell phone! It ain't worth much. No problem with it getting stolen, but it is a pretty color! Girls. I'm very time-oriented. My Swiss-German-French genes. So a watch is important. I also like the ticking of clocks. So I have a noisy, ticking clock in my living room.

Oh! You should tell about your travels! I have been to Switzerland, France, Italy, Germany, Holland, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Croatia, Serbia, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Beloruss. I've been to Heathrow Airport 3 times and I saw some of Ireland from the air in 2012! When I first went to Switzerland I thought I was gonna die from the smell of Gruyere cheese! That was as strong as the manure-sprayed fields in summer! Now I don't even notice the smell of cheese - any cheese! I suppose the countries visited that I've spent the least amount of time in are: Italy, Austria and Denmark. I didn't like Denmark at all, except for their trains. They are so comfortable and clean. Austria had terrible air pollution, especially near Innsbruck. And you couldn't pay me to drive through the Arlberg Tunnel, because of exhaust fumes! The canals in Venice are very dirty. Wouldn't want to fall overboard. I didn't like Serbia much. I don't like Romania either. It's a very hard, backwards country. Ceaucescu did a lot to oppress the people. France is difficult for me. Not sure why. We didn't have much freedom to minister at the 1992 Albertville Olympics, but the region is beautiful. I lived 2 months in the Champagne region, southeast of Paris. Weather was miserable. Some people were nice. Some weren't. People, you know. I've been in Alsace quite a bit and visited the trenches from WWI. There's a heaviness over Alsace. My grandfather's family was from Alsace-Lorraine, but I think more in Lorraine. They lost everything in the Franco-Prussian War. Germans are interesting. They're very intense, but I've had some good German friends. The Swiss-Germans and the Swiss-French are also very intense, and they can irritate me more than anybody! But I have an affinity for them. Perhaps I'm just used to them? I've eaten escargot several times and finally figured out I really don't like them. I like the garlic/butter sauce! I've eaten fried carp and I really like that. I've eaten lots of fondue and raclette. I prefer the former and I make it during the winter, from scratch. I've eaten lots of sauerkraut and like it fixed the Alsatian way, with juniper berries for flavor! I avoided blood sausage like the plague, but have eaten many other saucisses. My favorite pizzas were had in Poland and Croatia! So inexpensive, also. I've had fried cheese in Slovakia (oh yeah, I've been in Slovakia quite a bit) and in Sweden. Fixed 2 different ways. I like Lingenberry juice, Alsatian white wines, Suze and Appenzeller Bitters - the latter 2 will take your head off. I've spent a month in Greece and love the food there - baklava, mussels, falafel, gyros, feta cheese, greek olives, etc. Just don't like the men! I have blond hair, blue eyes and fair skin. Target! I've been to a leper colony in Romania, the Chernobyl Children's Hospital and a maximum security men's prison in Minsk, many cathedrals, many different church services in many languages, riden public transportation everywhere and I love Swiss chocolate! Lindt.

Traveling is interesting. So do tell me about your experiences! I love hearing things like that. I love listening to Flamenco guitar and I love watching someone play Flamenco guitar even more!

I loved the Association's harmonies. "Windy" wasn't my favorite song because I couldn't figure out the lyrics. Was she "tripping down the streets of the city" or was she "stripping down the streets of the city?" I liked "Cherish," but perhaps my favorite was "Never My Love."

Just came back from Dan Peek's page and his writings on "Endtime Prophesy." Very interesting, and I only skimmed. Although I don't agree with all his opinions, I saw some ideas that just smacked me in the forehead! I'm going to go back and read the chapters carefully!

That's it for now. I need to get something done!!!

shasta All right, let me ask the all-important question, KoG: Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ?

Anyhow, I encourage you to read daily! If one loves Jesus, one wants to know what He says!


S - I had written a message (including the places I went to in Europe) and was ready to post it, but I lost it when I went to look something up on Google first. So, I'll just address the "all-important question" that you posed to me.

Frankly, I was extremely surprised that you asked me that question as I don't think there is anyone here who mentions God, Jesus and Christianity as topics more than I do. For example, my postings of the Four Blood Moons. Another is my recent mention of the Bible Codes as well as my frequent mention of being in the endtimes.

You may rest assured that I know well what Jesus says and what He expects of each of us as believers. I live it daily at my workplace by going the extra mile to help ill patients who may not have the best personal hygiene because of their illness; by wheeling patients to the parking lot who would otherwise have to labor to walk to their vehicles; by helping a child or senior citizen dress because they can't do it well for themselves, etc. None of these things are required duties; I do them because of what Jesus has instructed each of us to do for those who are unable.

Yes, reading the Bible is good (to say the least) as it is instructed by Jesus. To read the Bible daily is good; to do daily what the Bible says is better. Likewise, I encourage you and others to look into the Bible Code findings of Matthew Wright on YouTube. He is not the most eloquent speaker (far from it but isn't it just like God to use someone like Matthew?), but he has a God-given gift of codesearching the Bible. He is "Codesearcher Dotnet". God has encoded the Bible, and it is only via the computer that these codes are able to be found in these end times as I believe God has planned. Perhaps through these codes, a soul may be saved. Perhaps, through these codes, someone will see the mighty awesomeness of God for only He is able to do such an incredible thing as encoding the Bible. And, most importantly, perhaps through these codes someone will see that it's Jesus who is the one who determines our salvation and eternal life and not someone like Buddha or someone or something else.

Regarding DanP's writing on "Endtime Prophesy," I will revisit them to see what he thought.

PS: Yes, the canals of Venice are awful. It's basically sewer water!
Italy, however, I thought was amazing...Rome, Florence, Milan and even Venice and it's pee/pooh water.

Hello There, KoG. From your answer, I detect some ire??? I'm well aware of your posts, and that's why I had the audacity to point-blank ASK, because I don't recall you ever stating the fact, point-blank. Although Mount Shasta is a gorgeous place to live, it has long been visited by new agers who consider the mountain to be sacred. Or trees or rocks, or whatever. They ALL talk about Jesus, but none of them has a personal relationship with Him. So I'm getting more careful and not assuming as much as I used to.

The new age climate and the rural-ness of the area attract a lot of "earth cookies." They are oftentimes dirty and very strange looking. Many are stoned out of their gourds. However, when I take an evening walk, I say hello to them and have had some interesting conversations. I'm learning to see them through the eyes of Love and that's making all the difference in my approach. No need to explain to you why I capitalized the word "Love."

When you're in the mood and have time, please do share your travel experiences, as I'd love to hear them.

I haven't been back to read Dan's writings on the end times either. I am learning how to do patchwork, borrowed some tools, and yesterday afternoon I got 3 small projects put together. Despite the fact that I got a different design than I planned (and I watched a video 4 times to learn) they all turned out very well and the colors are gorgeous. This afternoon I will probably continue with the next step. I didn't swim yesterday. The water looks too much like the Venetian canals! We have smoke today (and last night also) and the temperatures aren't high enough to swim.

O.K. off to the races!!!

S - It's not music at the fair, but music scheduled for Dec and Jan here locally. December is Chris Isaak (sp?) and Willie Nelson on January 2. Neither really interests me. By the way, I can't remember if I told you what decision I made between MMM and Larry the Cable Guy. I went to the latter. I had a great time. He's a nut!

Yeah, December and January aren't typical fair months, are they? I don't care for Willie Nelson. Grungy is not my style. Don't know the other dude.

On the other blog, you told Moser she could call you. I think I got your number, as you suggested she do. Can I give you a call tomorrow afternoon - Tuesday and give you my email address? I'll leave a message. I don't expect you to be home at that time of day. I've got a request - or 2. You email me and I'll email my requests back. O.K.?

Sure. I have a recorder with a generic message (not my voice but a "robotic" voice supplied by the company that made the recorder).

Here is one of CHRIS ISAAK'S MOST POPULAR SONGS from a number of years ago.

O.K. You're on, KoG. Between 1 and 2 this afternoon. It's against my religion to leave messages on generic machines, ya know. But I'll risk it today.

S - I rec'd your email. I tried replying back but it bogged down. I know it's because my home computer needs more memory. I will try to send it to you from work tomorrow. That is if it's still there for me to send.

O.K. I copy. Just got out of the shower and I feel like a million bucks, except the tiredness. Too bad I can't spend my life in the shower!

Just got home from attending Chris Isaak's Christmas concert. It was an excellent show. His band consisted of 6 members. Isaak has quite the sense of humor. The turnout was relatively small, but I guess for a Sunday night, it wasn't too unexpected. I'm very glad I went though. After the third song, he came out into the audience and sang an entire song on the floor all the while posing for photos as he sang. He even invited any of the ladies in attendance to join him on stage as he performed. Only 5 took him up on his offer. They danced as if they were all part of the show, but I know they weren't. Isaak and the band played 4 encore songs. Again, an excellent show!

Well, what can I say, KoG? The dude's got a really good voice, with a very wide range and from what I heard, he's spot-on pitch. But he DO seem to specialize in the more sensual side of things and wears those flashy clothes like Elvis did.

I MUCH prefer America!!!
