Aida

Posted by Scott Plummer on March 28, 2008

It’s been awhile since I posted here. Too many other things going on right now. I am more active on Twitter right now than here. Had to post about last night though. I went to see the Pittsburgh Opera perform Verdi‘s Aida. It was brilliant. I was worried because the last time I went to the opera they put on a modernized version of Wagner‘s The Flying Dutchman, which irritated me because it is one of my favorites. This production was done right, well done Pittsburgh Opera. Bravo! Thanks for the distraction.

Funny band.

Posted by Scott Plummer on February 7, 2008

I have been thinking lately about musicians who are also funny. I thought that it would be an interesting idea to “assemble” a super-group of funny musicians. I am not looking for the likes of Weird Al. I am not looking for people who make funny music, just musicians who also happen to also be funny. So far I have come up with a guitarist, and a bassist. See below for who they are and examples of why I think they should be part of the funny band. I need suggestions for a drummer, singer, and keyboard player, with examples of why they are funny. Suggestions for a name are welcome too.

Alex Lifeson from Rush on guitar. I couldn’t narrow it down, so here is a collection of his “rants” that he has done during La Villa Strangiato over the last few tours.

Guy Pratt, most recently of David Gilmour’s touring band on bass. Here is a few clips from his show “My Bass and other animals.” An interesting note on Guy. Along with taking over on bass for Pink Floyd after Roger Waters left. He is also the son-in-law of Pink Floyd keyboardist Rick Wright.

More info on Renee

Posted by Scott Plummer on January 23, 2008

I received the following information from Renee’s sister.

Hey Scott…thought I’d let you know that we just heard word the trial date is going to be June 16 in PGH for Renee’s case and hoped you could spread the word to the fellow IUPers that you can.

Thanks 🙂

Here’s hoping he won’t try to delay it a million times!

Any more updates I get you can find them here.

PA NHL domination over for Pens

Posted by Scott Plummer on November 8, 2007

Unfortunately the Penguins won’t be sweeping the Flyers 8 games to zero like they did last year after their less than stellar performance last night.

More info on Renee

Posted by Scott Plummer on October 19, 2007

I received a comment/email from Renee’s sister Lisa updating me on what is going on with the case/trial. Here is what Lisa told me.

“…WPXI.com has video of Crowson in handcuffs being arraigned on Monday.  The preliminary hearing is set for Wednesday the 24th….over three months since he killed her and 2 days before her should-have-been 27th birthday…

“…WTAE seems to be the station up there that’s the most on the ball but i’ve seen wpxi, kdka, and msnbc cover the information as well…”

Peace

Scott

James McFadden’s scorching goal from 40 yards out propels Scotland past France in the Euro 2008 qualifying round. Amazing goal.
