i feel as if luck was with me tonight, picking something just right on my first try.  none of that “no, not in the mood for that” or “oh dear, that’s not really a very good recording, is it?” business.  and, curiously enough, it’s the second time that east orange has come up in as many days, three if you count “when it’s apple blossom time in east orange, new jersey, we’ll make a peach of a pear”, which the first time reminded me of (and i even remember the little tune my parents sang it with… and in fact, it’s a misquotation of a line from the lobby number, by danny kaye. why’d i look it up anyway?  i prefer my folks’ version, naturally).  anyway, you’ll be happy to know that this is nothing at all like danny kaye.  or not much anyway.

    it must be a good SHOW (for shure)…
    BIG THX!…

  3. Excellent thanks, but now you’re playing with us, aren’t you??? You skipped ‘D’ – perhaps some Eddie Lockjaw Davis or Miles to fill that void? Of course, you’re perhaps not being as alphabetically focused as we think – it’s random/chance!

    • proximity and random jumps! kind of like shimmer, as advertised on saturday night live: dan aykroyd: new shimmer is a floor wax! gilda radner: no, new shimmer is a dessert topping! chevy chase: it’s both! yes, that’s right…
