April Is Back, Part II (a/k/a Follow You, Follow Me)

Sunday, March 23, 2014


Greetings and salutations, all. It is I, Cassidy, Official Spokesgirl for Miss April (above), Goddess of the Blogosphere.

I am writing to let everyone know that April, with a small assist from yours truly, managed to overcome fierce resistance from Blogger and add back the ability for her adoring public to follow her every utterance.

In English: Blogger is messing around with the gadgets you can add to your blog, such as Followers, Subscribe, and so on. But even Blogger will inevitably succumb to the awesomeness that is Girl Power, especially a double dosage. Bottom line: girls rule!

So, head on over to April's new digs and use the Followers section to join April as her journey continues. You can count on the rides being awesome. :D

A few a propos songs, courtesy of a band that hails from the land from whence our April comes. 




I love pretty much everything Genesis did from the Peter Gabriel era up through the Abacab/Three Sides Live albums in the early Eighties. The Genesis album in 1983 had some great songs ("Mama" in particular), but they lost me after that. Just too slick for this girl's tastes. 

But damn, they can play! Phil Collins is one of the great drummers, but he is routinely overlooked when you see lists of top drummers compiled. Just check out his work with Brand X, a jazz fusion side project he co-founded in the late Seventies, if you need proof of his bonafides:


And here he duets live with Chester Thompson, who hared the drum chair with Collins when Genesis played live. As you will see, he isn't exactly a slouch on drums himself:


See what I mean?!? I'm off to ice down my wrists just from watching that!

Hi Halle!

It would make the ideal wake-up music, I suppose. lol

BTW, working on a reply to your email, Miss H! :D
