Loved This Clip

I try not to get into politics on my blog as the last thing I want is a bunch of leftist and right wingers flooding in with comments. That said I found this segment with John Stossel that really summed up today's current political climate and since I hadn't posted in quite some time figured what the heck. For the Record-I will be posting some recent food items later in the week as recently the blog has taken a distinct non-food related turn.

Anyhow here is the clip....Enjoy!

The Power of the Internet

Got a cool email the other day from one of the artists I featured on my Guitar Post last month. Here it is.

ciao
i read your thoughts on my music and i want to tell you that i often composed and played music for children...impronte was recorded in '99 and was a demo... i contacted gp only to have a feedback and then they feature me...here in italy if you aren't a virtuoso you don't get anyone checking you... so i'm happy for gp mag and i want thank you for your idea on my music.

i'll load some other songs and any your comment will be welcome.
ciao again

How cool is that? Fatboy Guitar from Italy wrote me personally. Kind of funny. My review of the clip was...

Makes me want to drink a latte and sleep with a college co-ed not of my own racial group on a rainy winter day. I can swear this is the same guy who plays "froggie went a courtin'" on my sons CD of greatest children songs.


Good stuff....Fatboy if you are reading send me a case of Italian Red Wine and I'll personally see that your work is featured on this blog Monthly!

Anyhow, here is Fatboy's website. He encouraged all of our readers to help themselves to the free downloads and said there would be more up shortly. Now if I could only get Paul McCartney or Dhani Harrison to email me I'd be all set.

Here is his MySpace site with the songs and more info.
