will you send me some kleenex? I'll split the box with Kb. |
Ok: YES! And I was going to rush back here & chirp my thanks, but (see previous paragraph).
The new titles on the portal page look terrific -- & I figure there must be more than one banana peel behind that snazzy, orbiting-in-space icon for "Count on Me". The video was fun to watch: really captures the feel of the show, from just below the stage -- besides centering on Marty, some nice shots of Paul & Slick playing, & Diana dancing & singing back-up. Got me freshly excited about the upcoming shows.
Now, for the other one I watched today... I haven't yet seen the Papa John 75th birthday clip. There truly IS work I'm supposed to be getting done OFFLINE (!)...but I decided I had to watch the 9/29 Arrowfest clip with Grace's performance.
First reaction: Holy shit, what an entrance! (perfect musical backdrop, too) I won't argue with your advisory about the sound quality, but after a minute it mattered much less, because I was transfixed by the feeling of the performances -- the chemistry onstage -- & the poignancy of those songs under the circumstances (post 9/11). By the time the band started up with "Volunteers" & Darby went over to the N.Y. Firefighters & brought them out on stage, I had tears in my eyes. [& not just from sadness, & feeling moved, but I guess I also felt proud that the band had done this -- & with a lot of heart.]
So, yes -- & thank you!
