When Mrs. Scribe was a but a cherub herself, she coveted Rock 'n' Roll. If Dallas' downtown Memorial Auditorium or SMU's Moody Colliseum were hosting an act that had to do with rock, whether famous, infamous or merely up-and-coming, Your Humble Scribe was there. She also hit the clubs on McKinney & Cole Avenues, even though she was underage.
Mrs. Scribe also likes to brag about attending the BEST concert of ALL TIME, or at least the most paradoxical...The Sex Pistols once opened for Merle Haggard at Big D's Lone Star Ballroom. More than a trip-and-a-half, for sure!
As a young Scribe, Ms. S. was once so intrepid that she even garnered a seat on one of the speakers...that would be on the actual stage...of a Doors concert, when Jim Morrison was on his last legs & couldn't even remember the words to "Light My Fire." Needless to say, Your Humble Scribe's eardrums throbbed for a full month...or more...after that!
So, imagine Mrs. Scribe's utter surprise & disbelief when she tested her hearing at this funny little site promoted by Cupcake, of A Truth Universally Acknowledged. She passed! As we used to say, Back in the Day, *WTF!*
And one more thing: Mrs. Scribe will be forcing her Cherubs to face southwest and recite "Texas, My Texas" this morning, in honor of Texas Independence Day. Well, we declared independence on March 2nd...we didn't really win the War for Independence until April 21st. And that's another holiday entirely!
