Last night on the Twitter, I offered a shout-out to whomever could guess what Lionel Richie song myself and Blog Czar Michael Huber had quoted to each other in an e-mail. Our winner: Chris Rooney of WNYT.com! The correct song: “Say You, Say Me.”
Thanks to all who played!
IMPORTANT LESSON FOR THE WEEK
Talking about Sexy Cowgirls is somehow more controversial than talking about being an Atheist.
MUSIC VIDEO OF THE WEEK
Morgan Freeman as Dracula, nude if not for bubbles. And singing.
I love to take my baths in a casket,
although I take my showers in a grave
THING YOU NEED TO DO OF THE WEEK
Join me at Troy Night Out. Because if you don’t, you’ll be sorry. Oh yes. You’ll ALL be sorry. You know why? Because there’s a trolley on top of all the great art, music, an entertainment available.
Official list of events is HERE (also there – the trolley map!).
Sara from Nippertown with the Art highlights HERE.
Then, there will be dancing.
