Yep, I'm reviewing it--I just turned in the final version of the review last night. You'll be able to find it Wednesday afternoon at http://www.nuvo.net --and, with luck, I'll be writing for them part-time. I sat by the associate editor of the paper at the concert, and he was very impressed with my ...

He looked GREAT that night. But much to my chagrin, he wore those damn Wizard of Oz silver glittery cowboy boots he wears everywhere.

Oct. 15 Show Set List

This was an amazing show (and not just because he signed my ticket and wished me an early happy birthday). EC did a solo show--just him, three or four guitars he swtiched whenever the mood struck him, and a table with water, tea and throat spray. Having just him and the guitar breathed new life into...

How's about this for a beginning: Elvis Costello has spent the past quarter of a century playing dress-up with music. He introduced nerd-punk to the world with his 1977 debut My Aim is True, and since then he’s donned nearly every musical hat he could find: folk with the Chieftans, pop with Paul McC...

Help a Fangirl's Dream Come True

So, I have a friend who works for an independent newsweekly here in Indy. He has given me a task. Because he doesn't really want to have to do it, he has charged me with writing a 700-word piece on Elvis Costello, to be delivered by Monday morning at 9am. My wage: two fourth row tickets to the Octob...

I met him when I was in the second grade, at a Young Author's Conference--he signed a copy of a children's book he'd written. I remember being awed by the big, booming voice and the seriousness in his face, and I remember knowing that he was a very important man, without really knowing why. When I g...

And he was also the host of cheesy reality show "The Mole" (that I secretly watched and loved bunches and bunches and wish they would bring back).

But, he's hot. And soooooo gay.

Maybe that one thing is Anderson Cooper.

Costello Does Indy Again--Oct. 15

Costello always manages to play Indianapolis a week before my birthday--which means that I can always count on EC tickets as a present! He's played the Murat Theatre the last two times he was here, but this time, he's playing the lovely Clowes Memorial Hall at Butler University. The ticket prices ar...

The sentiment behind the song is wonderful, and I like the song, but Christina Aguilera annoyed the fresh hell out of me.

I don't think there's anything else better than a clean kitchen, tunes on the stereo, an ice cold beer, and cooking an incredible meal for friends and family.

Especially if the beer is Young's Double Chocolate Stout.
