Everybody wants to be a genius,
you're not the only one
After watching the amazingly wonderful, impossibly cute, sweet and strong-voiced wonder Inara George (who I am now virutally obsessed with--can you tell?) perform last night while my friend K-girl and I gazed up adoringly from our stage-adjacent, speaker-top seating, I ran into my friend Joe who had played keyboards with the previous act: a talented singer/songwriter and prolific TV/movie composer named Mike Andrews (Me and You and Everyone We Know and Donnie Darko anyone? Score!).
I'd written about Joe's terrific pop album on these pages awhile back and it's still in frequent sing-along rotation in my vehicle's CD player.
Our inebriated conversation went a little something like this.
Joe: Hey, I found your blog! I Google'd myself and found it.
Nictate: You Google'd yourself all over my blog?!
Joe: That's too many G's. This is starting to sound dirty.
Want to see a cool animated Honda commercial with a Garrison Keillor vocal appearance and a themeline that even Adbusters would embrace? OK.
