Home For Hope, and Some Amazing Thea Gilmore....
Hope is in her new home! She and the kittens went to the vet yesterday, all good, shots, etc. Today, Gayle drove 2 hours each way to come and pick her up, and deliver her to her new family. As you can see, she will be loved. She comes back in two weeks for her spay, the vet said she needed to be away from the kittens, who are weaned, until then.
One kitten has a home, Agent Orange, now Sylvester, has been adopted. I still have two VERY cute grey babies, one boy one girl, who are ready for their homes....
Which brings me to this: The mail came today. THANK YOU! The Fiver For Hope Fund thanks YOU. This Teenage Mother, dumped in my yard, has a new home, a chance at a wonderful life, as do her babies. This IS making a difference, and as these vet bills are getting up there, I don't know how to tell you how much your help means to me.
Thank you. Someone needed to care. And you did.
And onto some music....
I've been listening to the new Thea Gilmore album, Recorded Delivery, for the past few days. I love Thea's music. Been listening, LOTS of listening, for a few years now. She is an amazing songwriter, with the kind of voice that can haunt you nights. Or days. She hangs around on you, she does.
I've never had a chance to hear her live, and so was interested in her new live cd, despite the fact that I don't generally like live cd's. THIS particular cd blew me away. The sound is studio quality, but the performances are LIVE. I've never had a live cd effect me quite like this.
I have been in the studio. I know what comes out when you record a song, each track separately, over a period of days.
I know what a live show is like. I know how it is different, there is an energy that comes out for the people in the audience, that can't come out on a studio track. Recorded Delivery CATCHES that sexy, seductive, magic, slinky cool live energy, but with studio quality sound.
She got it on tape, to use an archaic term. And I am not at all sure that has been done before.
Here is her latest blog entry, where she talks about record labels, and a new idea of hers. Sign up. Now.
If you can see her live, go you, and get there.
If you can't, get this CD.
You will be there.
Love, Hope and A Live CD,
