And we are back....

Hello again! We have missed you! Now, where exactly did we leave things???? Ah, leaving Boston and going to CONvergence...

The concert on Friday was wonderful, despite the fact that we were brain dead Zombies, had never done a show with Paul before, and only learned many of the songs in the hour before the show, we had a great time and the crowd seemed well pleased with things. We played for an hour and a half, and got to do Richard Thompsom's Dimming of the Day, one of our favourate songs ever. Black Horse and the Cherry Tree ended the night, and it doesn't get any hotter than that.

Sunday's concert with Adam was magic as well. We played close to two hours and Malena went WILD WILD WILD!!!!!! I'll let her describe it in detail, but I am here to say there has NEVER EVER been anything that hot on stage , anywhere in the world, EVER!!!!!!!! When she turns it on, she turns it ON! We did Adam and Eve live for the first time, and Casablanca Moon and oh gods, I will leave it to those who were there to remind me of what the heck else went on. I do remember Adam and Malena going so far off into the Zone of Left Feild that I had to hold my head and leave the stage, who would think I would ever be the straight man in this act??????

We didn't play Saturday but had a great time going around to parties with Bill and the Hot BirdChick, Hans, ( Sherpa the Bodygaurd ), Jody the Sexy Librarian, her friends the baby doctor and equaly sexty librarian, Laura ( not only HOT HOT HOT but extreemly cool artist ) Paul ( yeah you rock ) Score , and most likely more people I am forgetting , and oh yes Miles Teves, whom Malena calls Mr Gorgoeus , who was the artist Guest of Honor......Big thumbs up for the Space Lounge!!!!! If anything proves I have learned wisdom in my life it would be proof of it that when asked the question " Would you like some Sour Apple Flavoured Vodka mixed with Kool air and Pixi Sticks " I said , uh, no , thank you tho......

Many many thanks to Tim Wick, Jody, Matt the Sound Guy from GOD, and Windy for a WONDERFUL Con. You made us feel SO SO SO loved!!!!!

Malena and I have spent the time since the Con working on House, and let me tell you , the women doesn't mess around! Yesterday we shopped for six hours and then came home and did crafts until three in the morning. We made soap , decorated towels, painted glasses, beaded lampshades... Malena then, little Witchy that she is, made candle arrangements, and two HUGE live plant arrangements on pedestal things for my bathroom. I had to talk her out of buying a WaterGarden Kit and lanscaping the yard, kid you not! Pictures SOON, promise!

One thing I have decided about house is that I really really need lightswitch and electricial outlet covers. I have one outlet that has a really lovely Victorian looking cover plate and I thought , I want every switch and outlet in the house to have a really cool cover, every one diffferent, but really cool. I think that would make my little nest perfect. There are a LOT of outlets and switches so if anyone knows where to get such cool things, I am now collecting them and replaceing them as I aquire them.

( also any artistic person who comes over has to paint me a glass, I bought a huge set and the paints, so be warned! Laura, you are first! )

Ye gads, what else? How do you sum up the last ten days in a few easy lines, while of course, worn out , tired and head still whirling from it all???? I want to talk more about the recording with Chris Ewen, but I think I will save that for a bit, until my head comes down from the clouds. What a perfect time it has been, recording, performing and working on House with my best friend.

It , quite simply, doesn't get any better than this. Ever.

Love, magic and lightswitch covers,
Lorraine

I know a WONDERFUL place to get cool light switch covers. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name. I promise to get the name (& if possible website link) as soon as possible!

Hi! What a wonderfully, enviably fun fun time - recording/CONvergence/House - glad to hear all has gone so well - wish I could've been there - I have always wondered what sour apple vodka mixed with kool-aid and pixie stix was like....

It was fantastic to see you ladies at both shows! You're both delicious, and Paul and Adam are icing on the cake. Loved "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree," and everything else, of course.

Lorraine love, I don't know whether or not this is really your style, but check out this website for some funky lightswitch covers:

It was great to see you two (three if you count Adam) in concert! Some of that was pretty damn funny. Great performance! I had a blast.

Also it was very cool to finally talk to you in person.

Did you enjoy the "clean air" outside? :)

As for the sour apple vodka mixed with kool-aid and pixie stix, it was a little (ok, way) sweet. I much prefered the Green Apple Vodka at the Wonka Party.

Sounds like super fun all around. Can't wait for pics... of both House and Con. hope all is well with everyone.

Glad to see you back

I agree, the green apple vodka was quit nice. It's a shame you guys all missed the COW party. they won hands down for the night I must say.
Had an awsome time all around. The sunday show was off the hook crazy. I just love how Adam can play any song like he wrote it even if he has never heard it before.
Let me know if you need anything heavy moved at the new house. More then happy to lend a hand at that.
Miles was cool as could be and I must say I have never met two people more in love then he and Melana. If you want to get one to smile just mention the other.
Be well, I have a pizza to eat for breakfast.

Your show on Sunday was fabulous - I was laughing so hard it brought tears to my eyes with your lively goofiness. :) you both looked good enough to eat (literally and figuratively speaking)
Good luck with the house decorating - glass painting is so fun!

woke up this morning to black horse and a cherry tree on the radio and my very first thoughts were of Malena singing it... how nice.

Ms. Quiche - There are some really cool copper switch plates here, some of them even Victorian looking. You can also shop the rest of that site by color and theme if you'd rather. If you've got a lot of time and the inclination to search for them, you could try here, but your eyes might go cross after an hour.

Also, is House the name of the house or just a place-holder until you come up with something else?

Sounds like you all had a fabulous time! Yay for fun (and smarts - vodka/koolaid/pixie BAD)!

Oh to have been there! Very envious of all those who were treated to 90-120 minute sets, but very very hapy that you had such fun.

Glad you had so much fun!

Most home improvement stores have clear plastic light switch covers in standard sizes to individualize. I realize that that is probably not what you want; however, I thought it worth a mention. :)

Malena, will you come and help me sort out my little house too? I've been doing it all week on my own, and am beginning to flag. It's only 5161 miles to Edinburgh...

Actually it is a lot of fun, though cool stuff like painting glasses and arranging plants will have to wait until we have painted the walls and found somewhere for all the books to live.

The concert sounds like a classic!

I have to admit... as far as the concerts go... there is a wee little green monster inside me saying..."jealous jealous jealous... wish I were there... oooh wish I could have gone... wish I could have heard it"... but mostly I am just overjoyed that they went so swimmingly well.

looks like you could start a home-decorating company M,... "magic at home"

Hi all! I'm in Transylvania! Just visiting relatives, both dead and alive. Mmmwuuuua ha ha hahaaaa

Hold on for convergence photos. They are worth waiting for TRUST ME! I'll be back on the 20th. Thanks to all who came to the concert. We were WILD!
