because...

*no other song you hear will mention Diogenes
*accordions have come 'round the back way to be the über rock-and-roll instrument
*we finally have a moustachioed delight to fill the
aching void left in our hearts by the exit of Señor Dali
*this song makes me giggle and think about the red-hat ladies
*it's better to run away with gypsies than to run off with the circus



but mostly because all your sanity and wits they will all vanish. I promise. It's just a matter of time. Plus, I love when Eugene wears those stripey pants.

Oh, and there's that little bit about Gogol Bordello playing Dallas tonight. I'm still sicky and I still feel like hammered poo and I have to work on Monday, but I'm'on be dere. Maybe not in my dancing shoes. Maybe in the balcony with a box of kleenex and a blankie, but I'm going to be there.

*An NYC Gypsy Punk band, GB is comprised primarily of East European immigrants. Someone once said they sound like The Clash having a fight with The Pogues in Eastern Europe. Good stuff.

Hope that you and lil sis have a great time tonight - despite the kleenex and heavy overblanket thing!

Thanks! I'll fight through it and have a good time despite the cold/allergy thingy. :)

I'll give you a full report Monday.

Have fun, Phleggmy!

Purple is my favorite color...
is THAT why I'm insane and witless?!

Whodathunkit...

Oh, I could cry - They're coming to Austin just when I head out to Abilene. Crud.

Still, thank you for introducing me to a fabulous new band, Phlegm.

lainy - thanks babe! I do feel better today

christina - Thanks, and I will, sick or not. They are always a spectacle to watch, and that kind of energy is infectious! No, purple is your favorite color because you love The Artist!

james - Yeah, that sucks, dude. If I were not feeling sick, I'd drive down to Austin to see them tomorrow night. As it is, I'm simply too whipped. I could fly, but that takes time and there's renting the car, etc., It's just as well this way. At least with the Imogen Heap show, I saw her in Dallas on a Friday and had all Saturday to get down to AUstin, and then drove home that night and slept late Sunday. *bliss*

Hmmm. I'll buy that! And speaking of The Artist... That was the first image that came to my mind. Unintended consequences?

Pop an anti-histamine (or two) and have fun tonight, Phlegmmy!

That IS a good analogy, about the Clash and the Pogues. I hope you feel great at the concert, and enjoy Eugene rocking those stripey green pants. Does he even own any other clothes?
