Today's Quick Mention: John Michael is
in the midst of finals, so he has unfortunately
passed up on posting a column today. You might
get something later this week. If you're
lucky. For now though, there's more of me!
Aren't you super happy?
No one puts on a show like Tim Fite, so when I
received word of him having a new album I
immediately figured he'd be hitting the road.
Well, no tour has been announced just yet, but his
new full length, which is titled Under The Table Tennis,
will be available for the lovely price of FREE on
May 18. You should get multiple copies of it.
Fite - We Didn't Warn You:
I'm a sucker for Tim's particular style of humor, so this
song (and its rambles about people doing things they've been
warned not to do) slaps a big enough smile on my face for me
to call it a winner. However, two other things should
be pointed out. The first is that the choice to use
such a fun arrangement was a great one. It moves this
track's "mocking" dial to 11. Secondly, the last line
of the final verse just proves that Tim is that much smarter
than you or I will ever be ... "Someday when it's not so
bad/We'll all look back and laugh"
