Yup, that’s right folks.  Here you have two requests in one post!

First up is a young appliance monster…

Next is a late suggestion for grrl week

  1. Hello David
    Talented little guy – I'd like to see him in action on a real drum kit. If my mum was still around, she'd probably say he reminded her of me at that age – as a wannabe drummer, I was forever driving her mad pinching her saucepans and wooden spoons from the kitchen, and making a racket. Apart from the implements, there was another difference, though – he's much better than I ever was!
    Joni Mitchell is a talented and influential musician, but in a genre that isn't really for me. And if you're open to an even later suggestion for 'grrl week', I heard a cover of Heart-Shaped Box by Evanescence on the radio the other night, and very good it was, too.

    Love & best wishes
    Sammy B


  2. Hey Sammy,

    Kids always like to play with kitchen utensils/gadgets more so thatn their own toys.

    That reminds me of a joke:

    Q: What do you call a person who hangs around musicians, but is not a groupie?

    A: A drummer.





  3. Love Joni Mitchell, just about everything she's done. This one is especially good, IMHO. Many people get stuck with Clouds, which, while a good song/album, certainly is not completely representative of a career that sapns from 1968 to 2007, with something like 20 albums!

    The depth and breadth of your music appreciation continues to make me envy you!
    Peace <3


  4. Jay- I do like to be elevated with nice comments, but I have to admit I don't know Joni Mitchell from Joan of Ark. The requests I get are from you guys, and often it's something I have never heard. Keep the requests coming!


  5. Yes, as an elder musician, I feel that it is my duty to elucidate the youngsters about the music that preceded them.

    This Joni tune was my request.

    Next week I will lecture here about this particular song, and it's significance to me (and there *will* be a quiz…lol!)

    I am going to sunny FLA for 5 days, but for now I would urge “mes eleves” to Google “The Hissing of Summer Lawns,” study the lyrics, and be prepared to have a spirited discussion.

    That is all for now.




  6. That kid is awesome. When I lived in Bemidji as a kid, I would beat on our bar stools with wooden spoons. My mom was just glad it wasn't the metal pots. I needed something to do during the winter….

    Joni, no really my thing. But she does have talent. I don't know if I'll be passing a quiz though…




  7. Not to worry, Kev…no quiz due to lack of interest.

    However, since Ms. Mitchell *is* one of the most influential singer/songwriters of the latter 20th century, I would urge anyone who is interested in singing/songwriting to check out her album samples on Amazon.com, and full songs on YouTube.

    Also, http://www.jonimitchell.com/ is a *very* interesting/informative site.




  8. Hi there, D_

    The ten-year-old is amazing: I think there's a career in music waiting for him, if he wants it.

    I'm afraid that the Joni Mitchell track doesn't appeal to me much. I think I might get on with it better by reading the lyrics as poetry.

    Take care
