William Tell

Remember the mom with the funny song to the tune of the William Tell Overture (or if your memory is like mine The Lone Ranger theme song)?

Well, her name is Anita Renfroe and I just learned she's from right here in the ATL, y'all. She's doing full-time standup now, touring, and she just released a new DVD. Can you imagine, going from la-la-la, I'm a stay-at-home-mom and I write witty little songs about my life and the goofy things my kids do to I'm a full-time, on tour, stand-up comedienne with my own d-buh-d, as my son would say.

Actually, I guess I can imagine that, because I would love for that to happen for Scott's musical career.

Here's some of her new act. (She's being sponsored by LUVS Diapers, who by the way, have a limited-time coupon on their web site for $5 off their diapers. ) I don't know if you recall, but I got some free samples of LUVS quite some time ago and was really pleasantly surprised by them. I actually have to go out of my way to find them since they don't sell them at Publix here, but I may have to. Lately everything leaks on Beckett and those are one of the brands that don't leak on my little chunkamunk. If only they made pull-ups.

Alright, enough! Here's the video:

Look Out Cleveland

Apropos of nothing, I thought I'd let those of y'all in the ATL know about a couple of my honey's upcoming gigs.

He'll be playing at Kavarna in Decatur/Oakhurst on July 12. This should be a great show. It's part of the Atlanta Songwriters' Showcase and he'll be playing with Jim Combs, Eudora June, and Moses Atwood.

He's also playing at a very new, very cool space called Underneath on July 26. Underneath is a listening room built and run by the guitarist for the band Vortex Park. It's the ideal place for acoustic music... seats 32, professional light and sound, stage. And for the guests, your ticket price includes beer and wine. Oh yeah. Good times, y'all!

Seriously, though, you might not be able to find a more intimate venue in this town short of a friend's living room. If you enjoy good music and you believe in supporting local music, I strongly encourage you to come to this show. You can get your tickets here.

And, my beloved loyal readers, you'll get to meet me! How cool would that be?

Oh yeah! And if you are one of my deeply appreciated and loyal readers and you're not in Atlanta, please pass this on to your music lovin' friends who do reside here and encourage them to come.
