Tell Me

Posted in blog, david garrett, marcus | Leave a comment
Just a little shout out today to my friend Marcus Wolf and congrats on the release of his latest album, Tell Me. If you follow this blog at all, you’ll remember that Marcus is David Garrett’s guitar player, but he’s also a fab solo artist, so definitely go check it out on his website.  He’s got a solo tour coming up in Germany too, so if you get the chance to see him, you really should. (I’m going to plug myself here for a moment because I redesigned the site over the weekend.) Throwing in the flash app here for a quick preview as well.… Read more

Friday Fiddling

Posted in blog, david garrett | 1 Comment
Got my tickets to see His Royal Hotness for the fourth time today. (Concert is in DC in Feb.) Best part about it? We have 16 people coming from all over the world to hang out as a group before and after the show. (A bigger repeat of the experience last year from the Birchmere). I can’t begin to mention how awesome this is – not only do I get to watch my fav violinst, but I get to do it with some of the most fabulous people I’ve ever met. However. I would like to call major shenanigans on TicketMaster for having a totally lame-ass automation system. I only called to buy my tickets because I had so many to buy and I wanted to talk to a human being about it (which didn’t happen). If I’d known how headbashing an experience it was going to be, I would… Read more

Queen of Hollywood

I realized last night that there’s been a dearth of meaningful blog posts on my site recently. I’m sure some of that can be excused – I will admit that I’ve got a bit of blog post burnout, but in counting it up, I’ve had nearly 30 guest posts or interviews that have gone up in the last 30 days, not counting the extra posts from Word Whores or the League of Reluctant Adults. And I’ve still got a few left to do, but the initial onslaught is over. And this is not a whining post at all. Just a statement of fact brought on by some of the experiences I had yesterday. For those of you who follow me, you know I went to the David Garrett concert last night. I met so many friends from around the country that I had only known online. Gifts were given. (I… Read more

I See You Shiver With Antici…pation

Sadly this post has nothing to do with Rocky Horror at all, but I just felt like throwing up a shot of Frank-n-Furter anyway. (Besides, mr myn bought me the 35th anniversary edition on blu ray a few weeks ago, so props to that, right?) Longest running movie, ever! 😀 No, my current happiness stems from the lovely set of tickets that showed up in my mail yesterday. 🙂 Yes, that’s right my loyal minions – next week I will get to go see his royal hotness, David Garrett, for the third time! With a meet and greet after the show! 🙂 So, yes. Let the anticipation begin. 🙂 <=Yay!!!!… Read more

Thursday Morning Shinies

Just wanted to shout out to my girls out there in Germany who did a fantastic job of getting me the new album by Marcus Wolf (And had him sign it to me, no less!) 🙂 Marcus is a guitarist who has been touring with David Garrett the last few years. (And having seen him perform several times live, I can definitely say the man has pretty awesome guitar chops.) You can buy his album off of iTunes and a number of other places, but if you want the song of him and DG playing “Little Wing”, you have get the physical copy (hence my German connections, since the CD is only being sold at DG shows in Germany, at the moment.) Even cooler, though? This awesomesauce and totally unexpected signed photo of the band. 🙂 So…Moni, Inken, and Steffi? Massive *hugs* from this chica in the States! Mwah! =3… Read more
