I can't concentrate on my book. Mind if I drape a towel over that thing?

Sure, I'll pour you some more valve oil in just a minute. I'm a little embarrassed to stand up right now.

Hey, waddya say we march down the garden path together and audition?

Ester, no. Go find me a towel without a floral pattern on it.

OK, very impressive, dude. But I can tell you right now its a real lawn shot.

Yeah, I don't really care for the pattern either. I think Mary Anna left it there.

Oh yes, I'd LOVE to rub some brass polish along your curves. Unfortunately it's sun tan lotion.

Hey Fred, WAKE UP! Looks like a heavy rain coming. Does your policy cover drowning in a lawn chair? Tu ba, or not tu ba...

A serendipitous discovery tonight:
"The reality in a photograph is make-believe. Nothing instructs us about that better than a caption. When a word hits a photograph they both change their focus."
--from a review of photographer Carl Chiarenza's mid-last century senior thesis by http://www.lightfactory.org/

BTW, Chiarenza's "Noumenon" is scary-beautiful, defying logical assessment.

(Apologies for this interjection of highly relevant non-levity!)

This one's hilarious

Just think, once we're through with all of these Sousa practices and performances, we can relax like this for the rest of the summer. July 4th can't get here soon enough!

Laura and Fred Consider Their Options

Hey Fred, could you look for a review of the Mahler in today's Times?
Ol' Puffy Chops shoved quite a few clams through me last night.
I was downright embarrassed during the Finale.

Sorry, I can't help it, Laura. I've been lawning for you ever since we sat down here. We did sit down here, right?

Well, at least you brought a pillow. But you're right, these chairs do seem poorly designed.

No, I'm good. Fortunately my water key is right over a gap between the slats. But don't you need to rotate before you can... you know?

Geez, Laura, you know I've never been much of an intellectual.
Anthropo-WHAT-ism?

Brrr, it's getting colder. I'm very attracted to you, Laura, but please don't laugh if I become unable to maintain the same degree of attention.

Y'know, Fred, I've lost track, but I think we've been here for quite a while.
Do you suppose that Tremblay lady just ran off somewhere and forgot about us?

Well, Laura, I have no idea where she went, but being stuck here is not nearly as absurd as is counting 72 bars of rest, going blurp-dy blurp blurple, and then counting more rests. Here we can set all that aside and reflect on a few things.

Fred, may I tell you something a bit odd? I was just dozing, and I had a very realistic dream in which people were making fun of us, actually putting words into our mouths.
It was very unsettling. I felt like a fool. The worst part was, there was a guy who kept making off-color references to that lovely massive bell of yours. I really wanted to tell him to get a life, but then I woke up.

Laura and Fred Converse about Glitz and Glamour in the Theatre

bob laird's picture

“Fred, remember the good old days when we could actually hear each other onstage? How the heck did that get so lost amidst all the plans for renovated glitz and glamour?
Half the audience believe they can now hear us better because the sound of the Theatre, although much worse, is l-o-u-d-e-r. We are all being sold a bill of goods by powerful folk who apparently know how to look but not how to listen.”
“Now Laura, watch out! We are but pawns in a game of aggrandizement. You know how scared everybody is over next door to say anything publically about the sound. It sure would have been nice to have been asked how the changes are impacting our job onstage. But no, we and even our esteemed neighbors next door are merely the hired help.”

The secret to success as an instrumental musician? Well, I don’t know why the rest of you guys make it so complicated.
Basically I just show up on time. Then I go ‘OOM’ on the downbeat and ‘PAH’ on the following upbeat. Finally, I am very careful to stop playing when everybody else does.

You'd better use some more sunscreen... your tan is starting to look a little brassy!

"Y'know Fred, sometimes I feel like I'm hardly making a dent in the stuff I need to do. Of course, I hate to use that word."
"But Laura, dent you tell me you were gonna forget about all that while we're on vacation?"
"No I dent, not exactly. I said 'set it all aside,' which is not the same. The only way I'm gonna get ahead is by dent of hard work on everything."
"Well I dent understand why you can't just let go for a little while...
By the way, Laura, you probably can't see it, but I think you may have developed a new concave dimple in your bell. Dent worry, though--it adds character and looks kinda cute from here."
