Friday, sweet Friday, has come round again. Yay!

Things are pretty quiet at Chez Elisson for the moment. She Who Must Be Obeyed is at work...the Mistress of Sarcasm is away at a retreat in south Georgia...boyfriend Gilad is back in Nashville...and the In-Laws have returned to Foat Wuth.

Not that we will lack for entertainment.

Tonight, we’ll head off to the Ferst Center for the Arts at Georgia Tech to see the Capitol Steps, a musical group (“we put the MOCK in democracy”) that lampoons politicos on both sides of the aisle. There is plenty of grist for their Silly Mill these days...

And tomorrow, the Birthday d’Elisson, it will be music of a more serious nature as we attend a performance of Madama Butterfly at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. Love! Hot Asian Babes! Self-delusion! Abandonment! Suicide! I can’t wait.

Meanwhile, let’s see what’s on the box this week:
  1. Kouman Sa T’a Ye - Boukman Eksperyans

  2. Compared to What - Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express

    The Les McCann and Eddie Harris version (from the “Swiss Movement” album, an impromptu session recorded live at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1969) is my favorite.

  3. Sandwiches - Mitch Hedberg

  4. My Girlfriend, Who Lives In Canada - Avenue Q, Original Broadway Cast

  5. Zerafewa - Maritu Legesse

  6. Rider in The Rain - Randy Newman

  7. Till There Was You - The Beatles

  8. Blackbird/Yesterday - The Beatles

    From the “Love” remix. Best listened to in Dolby 5.1 surround sound.

  9. Humoresque in G-Flat Major - Boston Symphony Orchestra, Dvořák in Prague

  10. Act II - Braid The Raven Hair - The Mikado, D’Oyly Carte Opera Company

It’s Friday. What are you listening to?
