El Bloggo Torcido
("The Twisted Blog" - more or less)
Welcome to the new home of The Twisted Blog! If you are looking for older posts you can find them here. Have fun!
In this world of a bizzilion social media web sites, it seems that blogging has fallen by the proverbial wayside.
Over on Facebook you can find all sorts of cool stuff, like this post concert photo of headliners David Lindley and Joe Craven:
Or even this awesome video of Mr. Dave and Mr. Joe fencing with a rubber chicken:
But that cool stuff never makes it here. I suspect that is wrong of me... but should I try to do better? Say something non-spammy in the comments!

At the concert last Friday, Darol Anger (fiddle) and Rushad Eggleston (cello) ended the first set with a great instrumental tune called The Phoenix. Also appearing are Emy Phelps on guitar and Sharon Gilchrist on bass.
Next show is September 7th featuring Mike Marshall and Caterina Lichtenberg - you should come!
"The Adventures of Private Chicken... as clucked to SGT F"
SGT F is now a team commander and is moving around a lot more, he says "things are going to get crazy around here... but I won't forget where I came from either...."
“Hush Private, no talking! I all ready told you we were going to the movies. After the work we have done the last two weeks, it’s time to relax a little bit“.
“Are we going to see Chicken Little? Such a brave chicken.”
“No, we are not going to see Chicken Little; we are going to watch John Carter."
“Is it a scary movie? You know I get scared easily.”
“No Private, it is not a scary movie; you’ll be fine”.
“Well, can we have popcorn or candy?”
“No Private, we can not have popcorn or candy. You will not have fancy reclining chairs or even a real theater. You will, however, enjoy the fact that occasionally we can go to the movies and kind of forget where we are for two hours (and enjoy the fact that they are fairly current releases).”
“Kind of like of when you put me in the closet Sergeant?”
“I told you Private to never discuss the closet. Now shut up and enjoy the movie..."
