Bard's House Party in Destin

To quote the t-shirt Redd made for Lil’ B…”Bards Rock!”

Last night Cam & Steph hosted a Brobdingnagian Bards concert at their business. Their store set up is really cool! Anyway, reddheaded, disbandedtoastr , droidgirl, tickmosis and a bunch of others were there. I forgot my video camera and am sad because when they took requests from the audience for Million Duckets Redd asked for butt kazoo (inside joke) and Toaster’s nephew requested Chuck Norris. The Bards accepted these two suggestions but shot down Toaster’s request for huphalumps (they banned her from making any more suggestions) and didn’t hear Toaster & Redd’s request for bananus (that last little bit of a banana). Instead they took Jedi and cats. This was something I would have liked to have had on tape. Next time I will know better and bring the video camera. And butt kazoo showed up in other songs and banter later on – which was cool. I also got to request two songs (Exclamations! and Black & Tan). Redd requested the Unicorn Song – Andrew went off on unicorns, it was awesome. I like his theory that all unicorn statues get dumped in Arizona for target practice and loved the look of glee on his face when he got to announce the unicorns died in the flood. When Marc pretended to blow his nose on Andrew made a big deal about it leaving a mess on his shirt. Lori cracked them up saying it looked like a unicorn. And Redd got them to sing Loch Lomand, which I had never heard them perform before and they have not yet recorded on a CD. The show was great – loved all the songs, loved the banter, and Marc did an amazing job despite being under the weather. (Actually, the weather was awful – tornado warnings and heavy thunder storms.)

After the show was fun, as well. We just sat around talking about movies and arcade games and Dragoncon and cheese and bunnies. Tickmosis & hubby challenged Andrew to a Bunny Foo Foo contest. Her husband actually may have outgeeked Andrew – he caught even his most obscure references and threw them back at him. Redd, Toaster, and I performed Butt Kazoo for the Bards. Despite what you are thinking, the song came from my uncle’s battle with prostate cancer so it has a lot of sentimental value to me. Actually, that’s probably worse than what you were thinking so go back to your original thoughts! And we were a bit tipsy when we wrote it so, yeah. I would LOVE to get a copy of the Bards singing it. Oh, and I learned that I really need to buy a watch. We didn’t leave until after 11:00pm and I was barely awake and dreading the drive home through bad weather. But it was totally worth it. And we’re all excited about seeing them again at GARF this weekend!! Plus, they have promised to return to our neck of the woods in the near future. So long as my husband gets his Star Wars arcade game fixed…

Sounds like a blast!

And I know what you mean about forgetting the camera... I actually LOST mine on my vacation :-( So I'm missing pictures from the last half of the week (not to mention I'm out a digital camera )

No No No!NO! Unicorns did NOT die in the flood. They did not! He's wrong. I know they didn't. :(

unicorns!
The unicorns are all okay!! It was all a misunderstanding!!

After Marc sobbed all over his shirt Andrew pretended to create a new ending on the spot about how they got away from the flood and are all okay. It’s a really cute bit in their show J

We needed you there at the concert, though! Because when Andrew asked if anyone else out there was sad the unicorns died no one piped up. You could have joined Marc!! No one else raised their hand or made a peep so I was too chicken to be the only one to say I didn’t want them to die, either!! (Yes, I’m a loser…) So instead Andrew told Marc he was just gonna have to suffer alone and that proved Marc was the only one dumb enough to care about those nasty disgusting freaks of nature and on and on – that’s when Marc “blew his nose” on Andrew’s shirt and Andrew changed his mind and decided to sing about them escaping the flood after all.

I actually thought of you during that song because he mentioned unicorn figurines and it made me think of yours!! LOL
