I think that my “theme” for Friday nights has become an educational experience for me, giving me the opportunity to randomly discover music I’d never heard. For the rest of the people who visit here, these videos are a place holder, but I’m enjoying the process so neener neener.
Lucia Micarelli is a Julliard-trained violinist working the musical seam of ore between rock and classical music. She has toured with Josh Groban, who produced her first album, as well as with Jethro Tull and Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Because TSO has a westcoast and an eastcoast troupe, the concert master I met backstage was not Lucia Micarelli. However, the concertmaster I did meet, Anna Phoebe, has also toured with Jethro Tull. None of which is particularly relevant. More videos below the jump and as usual, feel free to share music.
I truly believe the trio on “Fox & Friends” are doing the nation a huge disservice. Oh, sure, they’re entertaining because they don’t know what they’re talking about. But they’re dangerous because they work hard to convince their audience that they do know what they’re talking about. And their audience (as far as the ones they’re intending to reach) are not the type inclined to do their own fact-checking. For that they rely on Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck. Luckily for us there’s Newshounds (motto: “We watch FOX so you don’t have to.”) So I wrote this parody about the dimwits (and by “dimwits”, I mean Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson, and Brian Kilmeade, in case anyone thinks I’m being vague) on “Fox & Friends”. I hope you enjoy it. (And I thank you, Jane, for your help.)
Down in the Foxhole Original words and music “Down on the Corner” by John Fogarty,
Additional lyrics by Wayne A. Schneider
Early in the mornin’, just about breakfast time
Over on the Fox set, they’re startin’ with no minds
Three dips on the TV, tryin’ to stir you up
Rupert picks a theme out and they all begin to harp
Down in the Foxhole, out comes deceit
Gretchy and the Dumb Boys are spinnin’
Keep it simple, tap the heat
