Isn’t she beautiful and so talented (she looks a bit like the first woman I slept with)anyway…
It’s MONDAY – and I actually love Mondays they represent action, and fresh starts and I am serious when I say I love them. I did oversleep this morning …my thoughts went to that woman at the open house and we slept in. Hmmm. I do have a vivid imagination so some of my best affairs have been in my mind.
All righty then Susan Werner — have I convinced loads of you to go and give her a listen yet? You must, you must. This morning I am sipping coffee and listening her to her album “I Can’t Be New”. Really nice – although it might be more fun in a dark room, with a fire going and a nice martini.
OK clearly I need a date – with Susan Werner – or reasonable facsimile thereof.
I am on her mailing list (hey it’s a start) and this is what was in my box this morning… (of course that sounds dirty). I’ve ordered mine – do you have yours?
NO they don’t pay me for this stuff, they don’t even return my e-mails but so far they have refrained from filing a restraining order, so never give up I say, never give up.
A Note from SW: The New Project
December 4th, 2008 Chicago, IL
yes, it’s called Classics.
and u r thinking… is this like “the greatest hits of Susan Werner” or something?
uh, no. (i’d actually need a HIT for that, btw….)
or u r thinking… oh no has she lost her mind, and she did a record like that one barbra streisand did in german or italian or something with weird stuff she learned in school?
there are hits…
and there’s something kinda classical…. sorta….
some of u have already heard bits of it here and there out on the road – songs i’ve performed in shows, or experiments i carried out with a cello player in great barrington or northampton…
but for more details, well, i’ll let the music do the talking. that’s why its called music.
and this particular project is ALL about the music.
thanks for all your ongoing support, everybody.
see u all in 2oo9. with a new project and new musicians in tow.
