NPH Kickin It Glee Style

Posted by on May 19, 2010 | One comment

ICYMI: New Mexico native Neil Patrick Harris guested on that Fox runaway hit show Glee.

NPH rocked a cover song sing off à la Train circa the then Journal Pavilion 2002 (those pop/contempo boys killed it – ‘member? You ‘member).

You may have recently seen the mega star making a cameo in the hilarious local commercial for the Harris family Albuquerque restaurant Perennials. Tweet ’em up @ActuallyNPH.

WEHT – Letters to Cleo

Posted by on March 21, 2009 | 4 comments

Letters to Cleo

What ever happened to “Letters to Cleo” you may ask yourself, as I have many times since 1996. I still regularly – well I still have my LTC discs and am on the verge of getting them back out into rotation.

Though the world-wide-web has been at my fingertips for the many years passed since I’ve been curious after the whereabouts of the syrupy, smooth, baby-voice of the lead Kay Hanley, it is just now that I’ve queried her up.

And this is what I’ve found, A REUNION. Hello – touring dates circa 2008!

I “heart” that since I was first so taken with the Boston based crooner on stage at the El Rey Theater she’s sustained her living in her art, including a stint on tour with the teen-phen. Miley Cyrus. Ahh, full circle.

“Heart”, “heart”, “heart” that she’s 40, still bangin’ and older than me. Woot! Woot! “Just living on a Sunday morning, got my toast and tea and I’m warm and…Parody of yourself in color, giving it to everybody but your mother.” Ahhh, 1995.

On a ~related note:
Faith No More
Better Than Ezra (OMG, if only I had a benjamin [button] for every bead of sweat off that bass player landed on me {from the stage, gutter brain} from Cali. to MA…)
Fiona Apple
Matthew Sweet
Del Amitri

RIP Jeff Buckley

Kudos to the one-hit-wonders à la Lisa Loeb et al, and all those lil’ bands that still pop-up from time to time à la No Doubt!



Thanks Hesh
