Jenny Lewis: So, I finagled myself a free ticket to last nights Jenny Lewis/Heartless Bastards show. On the way I saw this little guy hangin' out on the street corner. He reminds me of me. He's a jack ass hanging out on the street corner looking for something. Anyway, The Heartless bastards killed it again. (I've seen them 3 times this year.) Plus, I got to hang out with them after their show. Really cool people. Then, Jenny Lewis came on and OMG that girl rocks. She can sing and is the sexiest thing I've seen in the flesh maybe ... ever. She makes mom jeans sexy again. Her legs are beautiful and so is her voice. She tore up the Granada theater. I truly am a sucker for red heads. So, after the show I ran my little ass outside with my Carpetbaggers (recored with Elvis Costello) 7 inch record to try and get signed. I was the first person out back by the bus and 10 minutes later I counted over 50 people waiting behind me to meet this ultimate beauty. I waited one and one half hour. I finally got word through the grapevine that she was waiting for all of us to leave before she left so, calling it quits I walked back to my truck and headed home .... sans signed 7 inch record. Oh, well you win some and you sometimes come out even. I got to see the show for free. And I got to see one of the most beautiful and talented women in the flesh. What a treat. I needed that. Thanks!

P.S. Jenny did play the Traveling Wilburys song Handle Me With Care. It was so beautiful I got a little teary-eyed.
