Leaping Lizards... Uh... WHALES!

Yesterday when we were having a cup of coffee outside around noon, we saw a couple of big splashes offshore. Could that have been a giant ray? No... It kept happening and then we saw TAILS.


Sorry, but no pictures. I wasn't going to miss out on the action while going to fetch my camera. Besides, it would probably have been too small to see anything.

So it goes...

New Steve Martin DVD/CD

I received an email from this morning announcing Steve Martin's new album/ video that was just released on March 11, 2014. Click on the link or image below and you can watch a full length video track of Steve and the Rangers performing "Pretty Little One".

Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers, featuring Edie Brickell, will release their first ever live concert CD/DVD package capturing their extraordinary performance at the historic Fox Performing Arts Center in Riverside California last fall. The live performance was recorded for PBS Great Performances and features material from Martin and Brickells Grammy-nominated album Love Has Come For You, as well as music from Martins Grammy nominated collaboration with The Steep Canyon Rangers, Rare Bird Alert, and his Grammy Award winning album The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo. This special live CD/DVD features Martins unique blend of comedy and bluegrass and is a first class evening of excellent entertainment.
Disc one has 19 tracks and disc two has 21 tracks. That's a lot of entertainment for around $16.

One of my favorite skits from long ago is Steve's "Cat Handcuffs" routine but it is no longer available on their mp3 store. Good thing I already have it.

But, while looking for "Cat Handcuffs", I saw a song off Steve Martin's Red Bird Alert album with Paul McCartney singing "Best Love" (click here for sample).
