Attic Community Playground Benefit Show: A thank you note from Jennifer!

Mon, Jan 17, 2011 at 12:00 PM

Hello, Friends! I would like to take a moment and thank all of you who came out to my solo show this weekend to support Attic Community Playground. (For those of you just coming on to our site, ACP is a non-profit organization with which I'm affiliated, whose purpose is the preservation of music and the arts! [Read more about ACP here.])

This was ACP's inaugural fundraiser, and you guys made it a big success!! 

The show was great fun, and highlights -- for me at least -- included performing some of my new songs on piano; a cool, vibed-out, acoustic version of "Incredible Machine"; and (how can I forget) two crazy, rollicking, sing-along covers of "Don't Stop Believing" (yes!), and "Jessie's Girl" as a duet with Mr. Jack Ingram. While I take the preservation of the arts seriously, I clearly don't take myself seriously. :-) Fun stuff for a good cause!

So a big thank you to everyone who attended, and a special thanks to those of you who purchased the VIP tickets! Your money will offer kids in Ponder, Texas and Avondale Estates, Georgia an opportunity to learn and play music this year! For any of you who were unable to attend but would like to contribute, visit www.atticcommunityplayground.com. There is no donation too large or too small! In the meantime, I'll be keeping you updated on what's exciting me in ACP. Big love to you all!

- Jennifer

    Cello. The men-folk arrived bright and early this morning to begin the home-insulation project. I could almost see the horny-housewife delusions drain from their shiny little faces when I greeted them at the door in my sweat-pants and skull cap. (This is how I walk the dog at 7 in the morning in February. (Sorry boys.) They were good-natured, though, with coffees in tow...so I set about sequestering the puppy in the dining room with me, while they hauled in all their supplies. (a half-door is a dream gift for needy-greety puppy!) And since I don't really have a crack o' dawn dining room routine, I figured I might as well check the in-box. Now...I don't know exactly how techie you are...(I think I've been pretty forth-coming about my own ineptitude...), but I'm guessing that you consider yourself moderately informed, which translates from the Virgo to ten times better than the average not quite-expert-person. (Oh yes, I know this.) But wherever it came from...I got a hilarious message. I was just clickin' along through the usual stuff...oh look, "hot young singles in my area..."and could I use "$1500 by tomorrow for a low, low interest rate?" Hey, there's a good one...my Psychic Deanne cosmic update! I love her! (She deeply cares, people...) Wait a minute...what's this...why has my matronly midwife gone all spicy Latina? Is that Spanish? Okay, this takes this to a whole new level! You have my full attention Ivanna...whaddya got? "Las fuerzas negativas pesan sobre..." What the hell... I mean, I'm not fluent...but even without that year of high school Spanish, that just don't sound good. But I have to know! I jot down what I intuit is her perilous prognostication, and to Wikipedia I go! But before I start plugging in words I need to give this a shot. It's all pretty standard, right? "Discover the cosmic secrets of the stars, the mysteries of the cards and communicate with the..."(what? Fiery astral?) That can't be right. Sentence structure in Spanish...think...think...the article for the main subject dictates possession for the immediate predicate...Damn! I can't remember first period freshman class! Okay Wiki...hit-me. Conmigo=me. Oh. Not Cosmic. Well, that completely changes everything. Oh yeah! So.."discover the secrets of the stars with me...the mysteries of the cards"...hold on. Better check on that one.Cartas means...1.mail2.post3.letters.Hmmmm. Mysterious letters...then what's this fuerzas astrales all about? (fuerzas=armaments. You lost me, Ivanna.) I'm going with this: I think my new friend Ivanna, who deeply cares about my overall happiness, wants me to discover the secrets of the stars with her, and arm myself against astral communications...possibly via my e-mail.( Here is what she actually said: "Descubre conmigo los secretos de las estrellas, los misterios de las cartas y comunicacion con las fuerzas astrales." And, by 'she' I mean the border-town stoner living on his mother's veranda. Let's call him Enrique, because his name is actually Rick, even though he introduces himself as Big Ricky...) Thank-you Universe. This is a most especial. Keep it comin', Ivanna.
