he came from somewhere back in my long ago

Today, I will write about two important men in my life.

First, Michael McDonald. My younger, more hip friends think I’m kidding when I get starry eyed over MMcD, but it’s all for real. He’s a cool cat. Pull out a random record from the ’70s, and he’s probably singing back up on it. I’ve seen him in concert three or four times recently, and he still puts on a great show.

MMcD’s occasional “appearances” on Family Guy and elsewhere suggest that I’m not the only one who still digs him. Did you see the Yacht Rock videos seven years ago? So damn funny. A few days ago, I shared a link on facebook to an old Conan bit – Camp Michael McDonald. A friend, John Dunn (not to be confused with John Dunne, who I don’t think is on facebook), responded that he’d done a Nirvana cover, singing as Michael McDonald. I begged for a copy and am excited to be able to share it with you. You’re welcome.

Second, today is James and my 9th anniversary. According to my calculations, I have spent 21% of my life with him. I don’t like to get into my personal relationships on my blog, so I’ll just share this photo instead. Looking forward to more squinty adventures in places near and far for many years to come. You’re a hearty soul, James Noles.

still squinty, after all these years

  1. Thanks for brightening my day Ms Jackson. I would have been happy enough to share your joy over 9 years with James but the icing of that cover made me laugh out loud and dance in my seat! I love me some Micheal McDonald too…

  2. Yeah Micheal McDonald is OK. But this is Fight Stupidization, right? Who better to fight stupidization than the World’s Smartest Man, Alex Trebeck?
