“Stroll down memory lane and, anyone got season 4 (episodes 40-52)?”
May 26, 2003


I hurt my back lifting an amplifier on friday so I am pretty much taking it easy this weekend, especially since rehearsals are next week, as well as the USA dates. On a good note, The Dodgers have won 10 straight games-guess I should have bet on them, leaving them a mere game and a half behind the SF Giants. I plan to go to a home game June 8, when we host the Chicago Whitesox, since there aren’t any home games before we leave for San Francisco saturday morning, on the 31st.

Got an e-mail from John E. He was reminiscing about the ’96 LOVE show at the Powerhaus in London, which happens to be a fave of all of us. Now, THAT was a special show. It was also the very first time YOU SET THE SCENE was performed onstage, which came about because Jazmaan (who accompanied us on that entire trip) and Rusty egged the Singer on until he gave in. It was a splendid moment and one memory that will forever stay with me is the guy who, right after the “i wanna love you but, oh..wo…wo…wo” part (where the music pretty much stops) he had his eyes closed and just said, “Oh my f*cking God!” in one of those tight west london accents.

Here in America, we celebrate memorial day on monday. Please don’t kill me but i have no idea what it is. My guess is it’s like veteran’s day but more official. However, more importantly, it’s a great time to watch Season four of the SOPRANOS. Except for one problem; I have’t seen it. Does anyone out there (in North America) have it taped on VHS? If so, can you get in touch with me? I would love to borrow it for a few weeks and I’d promise to return it in whatever condition it arrives in. Also, thanks again to Scottish Keith and that bloke in Dublin…you done good. And I disagree with Keith (and agree with John E.; tix COULD be higher!)
