    Oh, man. The bigger the cushion, the sweeter the pushin’, that’s what I said.

    The majesty of rock, the mystery of roll!

    HAH!  I saw them on their “Break Like the Wind” tour ages ago.  My friend Alyssa (the one who wanted to go and who bought the tickets) kept complaining afterward that the whole show “was just so scripted and fake.”

    “Um, Alyssa, did you notice that the band was the guy who does half the voices on The Simpsons, the six-fingered man from Princess Bride and Lenny from Laverne and Shirley?”  She had NEVER seen the movie but really liked hair bands, so there we were!

    You know, I’m a little torn on this.  Spinal Tap is one my favorite movies and I’ve probably seen it, oh, 50+ times.  The fact that they’re doing it unplugged and without costumes does disturb me.  To adopt a metaphor, “I don’t want this, I want large…bread.”
