Yesterday it rained. A lot. Hard. It rained so hard I needed to use an umbrella to get to the car. That happens very rarely. And, of course, it rained throughout most of the day, finally beginning to slow down in mid-afternoon. When I left work it was more of a steady drizzle, and then that stopped, too.
Predictions are for more showers today, tomorrow, and Wednesday. Temps are also supposed to stay sweater cool, with the necessary blanket thrown over the bed to stay warm at night.
The rain meant business was slow... at least for flooring. The paint department was busy.
And last night I went to see Alice Cooper. He's quite spry for a 75 year old. My brother was surprised by how many set pieces there were, he was not that familiar with Cooper's history of theatrics. He did have a live boa onstage, and there was a decapitation with a guillotine. I have an Alice Cooper $100 bill courtesy of his stage crew using guns to shoot confetti and Alice Cooper money out over the audience. Even though the venue is sitting, everybody stood for an hour and a half. An interesting point, the gentleman to my right works for the Patriot News to do critiques and recaps. I talked to him before the show, and then again as we were heading out into the parking lot. His recap is quite accuarte.
Of course, Alice played all of his hits. Here's a bit of School's Out, that's the young man in front of me singing out of tune. This is what happens when your recording with your phone and the cramped rows are forcing you to hold it near his head.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going back to bed for a quick nap before heading off to work.
Never been an Alice fan ....ReplyDelete
Then you've evidently never heard Halo of Flies 😎😎😎Delete
Im terrible on two counts. I thought Alice Cooper was already dead...and I also had no idea the Patriot News was still around?ReplyDelete
I'm happy to tell you Alice, and pet boa, are very much alive.Delete
A REAL decapitation? Wasn't he the one that bit a bird's head off one time?ReplyDelete
Ozzie bit the head off. And the decapitation was definitely fake since his was the head that got cut off, and there were still four more songs in the show.Delete
It is hard to believe he is 75 and still entertaining.ReplyDelete
Elton's 75, too. In fact, at his concert he said, "Ain't bad for a 75 year old, am I?"Delete
I'd like to see Alice before he's dead or I am. That guy in front of you had better not quit his day job.ReplyDelete
Everybody has to chuckle at that, and I believe he had a really good time.Delete
He's SEVENTY FIVE?? Darn. That show looks fantastic to me. You had a great view. And he's always been very stage-heavy. I love that. Madonna is other artist that always comes up with something new with stage changes and whatnot. They do put on a show.
Oh, and it's raining here too. A lot.
It was very entertaining, very theatric. He's an icon of sorts because he broke ground in concert theatrics.Delete
