Carothers House Concert Wrap-Up..

You know, it's funny, I think Craig Carothers has played here 10 times in the past few years, and for some reason during all those shows I've never thought to take pictures — probably has something to do with the fact that I'm running around like a preist with a secret the day of the show trying to get everything ready.

It's a shame because he's consistently transcendant, and I always end up wishing I had some record of the evening. This time was no different in regard to racing around like mad to get the house in shape, except that this time I did manage to snag a few jpegs of the performance for posterity.

True to form, Mr. Carothers once again had people at turns either bawling like infants or cackling like teenage girls—what a talent.

Good times, good times...

Thanks again to everyone who made it out.

Got Flash?

If I ever meet Jonathan Gay, I’m gonna kick him in the nuts... either that or buy him lunch. It terrifies me to think about how much time I’ve wasted looking at stuff like this.

consider how much time this fella spent writing the script.

And yet, I still can’t look away...
(bonus points if you can name the tune.)

craig carothers house concert; saturday november 18th

Some of you might’ve noticed that I’ve got my apporach a little backwards here, posting Gideon Freudmann’s Dec 2nd house concert last week, and then posting Craig Carothers’ November 18th show today. But c'mon—Jack Elam!

Seriously though, if you’ve been, you know how quickly Craig can fill a room, so if you’re thinking you want to reserve a seat or two, you’d better do it sooner than later.

Just drop me a line and let me know if you want to come.

See you here!

I wonder if this is what it was like in Rome during those last days.

For those of you who like your irony well-done, here’s an interesting bit of trivia (for laughs, swap out “Romans” with “United States”—hilarious!).

“The largest organised rival of the Romans was the Persian Empire to the east, occupying modern Syria, Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan. The Persians were the political descendants of the Parthians who had revolted away from Greek rule following Alexander's conquests and, thereafter, successfully resisted Roman invasions.”

Maybe the end really is near…
