Here we are. Another Saturday at The Playground, which means it’s time for this week’s… Ha…
If you’re new to The Playground, or have been around for a while and just now decided to actually read it, first of all, well done. Reading is hard. Secondly, here is a convenient link to The Rides that you’ll find here and what days you can expect what. This is the third week of Saturday: Holy Haikus, He-Man! So far, we have discussed hotdogs and nipples. This week, Germans will enter the equation.
A lot of exciting things have happened this week. I finally officially nailed down both North American and European booking agencies for the band that I manage in preparation of their 4th studio release hitting the market in June. They definitely got me really high..I mean this was definitely a career high.
I also was asked to become an “administrator” for the all female HEMA fencers group that I belong to. I still have no idea what “ad-min-i-stra-tor” means, as there is an invisible force field around the section of my brain that would allow for basic computer language comprehension, but I’m told it’s kind of a big deal. I hope to one day understand what the hell they’re talking about, but I suspect a lobotomy will have needed to take place (puff….again).
In the meantime, I’ll place that title neatly next to my Zero to Hero Cape that I will be donning all throughout town in just one week’s time, while wearing my purple sparkle disco pants, and bar hopping with the unicorn. I foresee no hiccups in this plan.
Something else that happened this week, was working 3 days with some German act called Kraftwerk. I guess people like them because they “played” 4 sold out shows in 3 days.
You read that right.
Ordinarily, this would be quite difficult for a band to do. I’ll level with you here folks, I am NOT a fan of the electro-synth-pop, and as a direct result, have managed to quite literally, go my entire 38 years without ever hearing a Kraftwerk song.
The guys and their crew are absolutely lovely. One of the easiest productions ever.
With that said…
Not a single stage towel was used.
And that, my fine readers, is the basis of this week’s haiku:
Pling-Plong. Kraftwerk, here!
No instruments. Just laptops.
Ha-Ha, You Dummkopfs.
