Link And Ye Shall Find
3. I need this to sit in the back window of my car. Watch the birdie4. Everything you didn’t want to know about presidential health: Anal polyps to oily discharge... It's all here. 5. Become an organ donor with your motorcycle. Pretty good time killer. 6. Richardfest sent me the following link. I started watching, and waiting, for some type of condemnation against the Hippie generation... It didn't happen. Oh well. I've never been much of a Billy Joel fan, but I do appreciate how talented he is... Except when he's driving in to trees. The link below actually helps with many of the questions I've had about the song by answering, "What the hell did he just say?" in flash animation. 7. The final link has a twist that is so uncalled for, and caught me off guard that I had to share it. I was not prepared for the ending. Let me be clear: The ending is so very not safe for work, I'm going to say it many times: It's a strip poker game! That introduction alone should tell you the following is not safe for work. Play now! I promise you will win! Did I also say it wasn't safe for work? It's not. This is wrong on so many levels. A Kinks reference to prepare you: Lola... L-O-L-A, Lola...
After you finish playing, think about me standing over your shoulder saying: "I bet you didn't see that coming, did you?" And please let me remind you that this game is not safe for work.
What else can be said about Krall's piano and vocal ability..? Not much that hasn't been said many times over. Consider her a female Harry Connick Jr. with talent and looks to spare, and you have all you need to know. A beautiful voice on classic covers of the rich American Songbook marks this CD as more than just another pretty face belting out standards ala Rod Stewart's recent attempts. The CD really makes you wonder what it was like in the 50's and 60's to head out on a Saturday night to a club for dinner, and an evening of Jazz. A solid effort that is perfect for this time of year.
