Fearless Puppy Gone Country!!!
Hi! I hope you are happy and healthy.
Tourists still aren't allowed into Nepal. The Blue Meanies still have the live music and restaurants cut off. But stores are now legally open during the daytime. Folks are out on the streets again. There are trickles of traveling in-country Natives and Ex-pats coming to the lake. I came here for live music months ago and haven't gotten to hear any yet! I listen to a lot of my own picks on YouTube as well as following the fantastic “DJ Mustapha" show there. The DJ (a friend and kick ass drummer from Vermont) and I have similar tastes. We both go pretty deeply into rock 'n' roll, jazz, and the blues. But I have lived for decades in very rural areas throughout America where all my friends were big country music fans. With great gratitude and nostalgia for the country music loving people that were so very kind to me, I have written a couple of country tunes in their honor. I can write some decent rock'n roll lyrics and have even done a collection of positively oriented hip-hop songs that, I am told, aren't bad. But in writing these country music lyrics, I may have erased the thin line between silly and stupid. The first song is well-intended but a little silly. The second is a little more of a flat-out stupid and exaggerated comic-book-style of country music comedy. I hope you get a good laugh out of them anyway.
