September 17, 2007

Ace has a version of this song in his Sally Field post, sung by Joe Jackson and monologued by Bill Shatner.  I didn’t know the song, so I went looking for an original.

A Pup in Sheep’s Clothing

baaaaaah ed spelling dude

   I have a customer who emailed me today about a problem, and is asking for help.  Lord knows I heart customers, especially the paying kind as apposed to the prospective kind, but this guy has me pegged all wrong:

“Please contact (redacted) ASAP to see if ewe can resolve the problem.”

Executive decision:  I believe this can wait until Monday. 


Led Zeppelin – Rock and Roll

September 8, 2007

 It’s been a loooooooooooooong time.  From Yahoo Music:

…dancing days are here again, because the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin are finally getting back together!

Incredibly, according to NME.com, frontman Robert Plant is in talks this week with fellow Led Zep legends Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones about a Zeppelin tour that’ll hopefully kick off in London this November. Presumably late drummer John Bonham’s son, Jason Bonham, will fill in behind the drumkit for the Zep trek…

Wow!  A Led Zeppelin TOUR!  Plant, Page, Jones, and (Jason) Bonham together again.  Too good to be true?  

Yep.  Some yahoo didn’t even read the source article.   

From NME.com:

A fan who met Plant in London today contacted NME.COM explaining that the singer said he was on his way to meet bandmates Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones.“How did you find out about this?” asked Plant when asked about the prospects of a reunion show by the autograph hunter. “Well we’ve got a band meeting about it this afternoon about it. There’s not a lot to work out as it’s only going to be one-off gig.”

NME.COM has also learned from a music industry source that the show, possibly to take place in November at the 02 in London, will be a charity gig organised by promoter Harvey Goldsmith.

Did you get all that?  The two sources for the story are “an autograph seeker”, and a mysteriously anonymous “music industry source”.   Real rock solid, factual reporting there. 

No tour. 

One concert in London, maybe. 

Oh, well.  Good luck fellas. From 1979:
