Play that funky music, white boy…

Last night I was tooling around YouTube, as I am oft to do, and I found this incredibly hot 70s slow jam that I’ve always loved.  I’ve been kind of obsessed with it ever since.

Gino Vannelli wasn’t a one-hit-wonder… he had a few hits in his day.  But he proved to the world that Italian white boys can, indeed, crank out a hot slow jam.  

This video has it all: big– and I mean HUGE– hair, a smokin’ backup girl vocal group, cheesy camera angles, chest hair, a screaming crowd, and a tenor sax.  I mean, does it really get better than this?

Hopefully this will help melt your winter blues a bit. 🙂

Rick on Feast of Fools!

I’ll be heading up to Milwaukee with them for Milwaukee Pride Fest. I haven’t been there since probably 1997 or so, so it’ll be fun to go “back to my roots” a bit. Plus the weather should be hot and steamy, which means lots of pictures of hot boys. 🙂

Avenue Q Touring CastI saw Avenue Q on Tuesday and LOVED IT LOVED IT LOVED IT! I’ve been enjoying the cast recording for a few years now but had never seen the show on stage, and it was so much more wonderful and adorable and cute on stage than just the cast recording alone. I want to see it again and again, but sadly it’s leaving Chicago after this weekend. I’m hoping it comes back for a repeat appearance or maybe even a long run very soon.

So that’s what’s been happening… more to come soon. Hope you have a great weekend!
