Wednesday Post

Ok I have something to admit. I have a song that I can’t stop playing: Ah Leah by Donnie Iris and the Cruisers. You probably know the song, but don't know it by name. Check it out on their MySpace page. The version they have up there is a live one. It is a badass song. I'm going to either download the live version or buy the live album.

Miniher has changed her MySpace page name to Master Polo II after the infamous, unknown Memphis Z List celebrity Master Polo. He is the unknown dude who is friends with most everyone on MySpace. His entire profile is a lie. But if you look at Master Polo II you’ll see a fuzzy camera phone pic of some dude. I believe (without any proof) that dude is Master Polo. So catch a glimpse fast before she reads this post and deletes the pic.

And Miniher, what’s up with changing your name to Master Polo II? Is it obsession or infatuation?

OK so what else is going on? Friday night I’m going to a birthday party downtown for the Shady Hasbeen’s sister. She turns 30. You have to know her to understand why this is a big deal. She’s one of those people who is obsessed with staying young in our eyes. I still love her to death, but damn woman, you’re gonna be thirty. Get over it! Oh and Happy Birthday.

I just got an invite to another b’day party in Midtown Saturday night from Rachel. She forwarded the info to about 100 folks. How I made the cut I’ll never know. I’ll probably go by. Actually I think I crashed this exact party last year. It’s very Midtown with a DJ playing and a bunch of angst-ridden 20 and 30-somethings. You know, the hipsters. Not that it’s a bad thing. I’ll probably drag Mr & Mrs P there since they were the ones who took me last year.

I think Paul mentioned something on his blog about an MPact Memphis party next Wednesday:
“Mpact Memphis is having its After Hours on the rooftop of The Lofts, Tennessee at GE Patterson, next Wednesday at 6 PM, with music by The Glass. I haven't done anything with Mpact in a while but this event sounds pretty cool.”
I may check that out too. I'd like to see The Glass because everyone in the blogosphere talks about them. I also need to go to an MPact event sometime. I think I’ve been to one of their events since I graduated from college.

…which was four years ago. That blows my mind. This time four years ago I was talking my final summer school classes during the morning and laying out by the pool drinking beer every afternoon. For any of you who are still in college, walk with your class in May and then take summer school classes. It beats going to work all summer long.

Other than that I’m taking it easy to prepare for my big trip to New Jersey for the Deuce’s wedding next weekend. More on that story another time.

Have a good one and don’t get none on ya.

Yes, The Glass is a great live show. You should not miss the chance to see them---I guess I'll see you there!
