Colin Hay  
Last night, Susan and I went to New Jersey to see Colin Hay play. We got a hotel somewhere in Jersey and were met there by Paul P. The show took place in a presbyterian church, of all place. (Paul did not spontaneously combust)

The opening act (yeah, there was one), a man and woman couple who have won some awards at folk festivals, played for about thirty minutes. Paul likened them to 'a mighty wind' only, in my opinion, they sucked more than a backward asshole after a Chinese/Mexican casserole chased by a twelve pack of Budweiser.

Colin Hay was fantastic. Not only is he an exceptional musician and song writer, as if that weren't enough for one guy, but he also has perfect comedic timing and an endearing, self-deprecating sense of humor.

I would gladly see him play again.

Regardless of whether or not you liked Men at Work back in the eighties (personally, I didn't give a fuck about them one way or the other) I suggest you pick up one of his solo albums. That is, if you enjoy mellow acoustic music. His stuff is wonderful.

I had the best time with you, dear. I definitely want to see Mr. Hay play again.
