Ed Sullivan!

You know that song from "Bye Bye Birdie"? Well you should.

Ed Sullivan is so venerable he should be a koihead. But I must beg to differ with him. Much as I love them, calling these guys a "rock group" is quite a stretch.

Anyhoodles, this is for The Hat. And it's awesome.

And I'm still crushing on the bass player.

And that is all the time I'm going to spend on YouTube today because I have to start prepping for the Autumnal Feast tomorrow night which is, as you know, no small undertaking.

"Ed Sullivan, Ed Sullivan, WE'RE gonna be on Ed Sullivan...." Ah yes, memories of high school theatre coming roaring back. Remember Kim in Bye Bye Birdie? No, I didn't play her, but remember her annoying friend? No, I didn't play her either. I played annoying friend's mom. That's what happens to good singers with wide hips in high school - they play moms.

Hello? You need to keep reading, my friend. And the only reason I didn't play "Along Comes Mary" is that I had to stop playing videos and get somethin' done!
