Dogtrot EmilyBoo:

Unfortunately, I have bad luck with camera’s (and also watches and assorted other things too numerous to mention) and although I did take one with me the batteries appeared to have drained en route. Tarasapp, however, did take some photo’s, but I’d have to ask her permission before I could post links to them.

If faerie/tarasapp had mentioned to me earlier that Sweeny Todd was playing and that she wanted to see it then I could have made provisions to try and obtain tickets. Saturday would have been the only day that we could have seen it and it was mentioned far too late to realistically do anything about it. Shame really, as I wouldn’t have minded going to see it myself and I don’t think that I’ll be in New York and time soon.

I’ve been to Paris (although a good few years ago now) and I didn’t even know that they had a scaled down version of the Statue of Liberty. I noticed the Eiffel Tower in the background and this always makes me blush as I must be the only person in history who managed to be going the wrong way when they went visit the tower. I meant it’s a huge landmark, visible for miles and yet I failed to notice it. Thank you for posting the picture of mini liberty, if I’m ever in Paris again I’ll try and find it. That way I can complete the set.

Quite strangely, the postcard that I sent to the people at work arrive in the office today, two weeks and a day after I posted it ~ kind of makes you wonder why you bother.

Rack’s track of the week. This weeks offering is a classic from Y&T - Rescue me

Taken from Y&T’s 1981 Earthshaker album this long standing radio favourite is rather deceptive. The opening verse of “I was down, I was barely makin’ it / she was gone and I couldn’t take it/ I was looking for a new way of thinkin’/ When I go to sleep, I prey I wouldn’t wake up” accompanied by a single guitar may lull you into think that this is a typical rock ballard. But Dave Meniketti soon powers into a fully fledged rock offering. Whilst never one of the true guitar greats, Meniketti certainly knows how to put together nice a nice set of riffs. But it’s the lyrical content that gives “rescue me” its long standing appeal of someone lost in a sea of their own emotions and not quite able to find away out. This is the kind of some that almost anyone can relate to at some point in their life and is probably the reason for its enduring appeal.
