I'm in love, again

Browsing the library, picking CDs at random can lead to a lot of wasted time and heartache, but sometimes, sometimes you accidentally pick a winner.
I've started a passionate love affair with Trombone Shorty.
I picked up the CD For True just because of the name Trombone Shorty; i mean, who plays the trombone in this day and age?
Troy Andrews, apparently, and he does it very, very well.
The library categorized it as jazz, but i'd also call it funk and r&b, with some rock guitar, bounce vocals and old school hip-hop. Really, it is nearly impossible to define because it feels like its own thing.
It does however, make me dance and you know how i love to dance.
The CD has been on repeat for 2 days now and i keep finding nuacnes that make me smile.
Do yourself a favor, give Trombone Shorty a try; be sure to listen to the whole album.
You can thank me later.

He also plays (and gets a shout-out) on the U2/Green Day team-up, "The Saints are Coming".

hi niki
for great coloured pasta I use about 3cups of pasta 4-5 drops of food colouring and a few drops of rubbing alcohol-shake it up an dlet it dry in a warm spot-the sunoutside on a hot dry day works best for us here in Saskatchewan! Just don;t eat it!
Have fun :)

Huh? Colored pasta? Trambones...I don't get the connection. But perhaps it's because I'm....
