IT'S BEEN ONE HELL OF A DAY.....
Iv been done with Jesus Christ Superstar for almost a month now, since I simply cannot go without my "theatrical fix" as it were, I have auditioned for the next musical "Pirates Of Penzance" (Yet again Jumping into a show I know NOTHING about! Haha) I can tell you it was written in the 1800's and was a cutting edge operetta then. I am almost iffy about posting this, but I'm hoping to earn the part of "Major General" I have always wanted to sing his title song!
However If I don't win the part I wont be upset! This show is an all out RIOT! So If not the Major General I hope I get cast in the Pirate Chorus (this next clip 'With Cat like tread' is HYSTERICAL!)
No matter what part I get the show is going to be great! The Guy who directed Jesus Christ Superstar is also the director for this show. The kid who played Jesus is also trying out for the Pirate King in this show. It was funny at auditions, the director asked him "What makes you think you can be a Pirate King?" and with out missing a beat Jonathan (Jesus) said "Well I was King of the Jews...." ! It was great!

Now onto the latest bench news, after receiving all of you great ideas here are a few combo's I came up with ...
(I did turquoise here, every other band, Michael suggested forest green for this style!)
( Leslie suggested I paint 6 slats white, the middle 6 turquoise, and the last 6 white, I took that idea and added 4 more stripes in the white. This is one of my favorites)
(same model in red, just for reference)
(this one I'm iffy about, same patter as before but with 2 more white bands)
Once again, What do you all think?! I really am leaning towards the color turquoise as the accent color. Mainly because its my 'signature color' and as Elle Woods, (and my best friends Colleen) teach us "Never stray from your signature color" ...

Crosley Stack-O-Matic NIGHTMARE!
so It arrived today, and im pretty sure its BROKE! Iv tried contacting the ebay seller but he hasn't replied yet.. Basically what happens is the arm of the player never starts on the edge, and has YET to play a full record with out skipping or getting stuck... now most of you are thinking "Mick, give him a break records have little problems..." But I keep my records in IMMACULATE condition Polished clean and scratch free. I'm also 99.9% sure that this new play made a deep scratch on my F'ING HOKEY POKEY record... and if it wont play on my trust old record player I'm gonna be PISSED!
Does anyone out in blog world know anything about these Crosley's? We don't have a local dealer, and this one came from Houston new in the box... I'm afraid even if the seller does send a replacement that it will arrive broke as well, and the WHOLE POINT of buying a new stack record player is so you don't have to mess with all this!
So that my dear friends is how Wendsday rolled out!
