Yes, here we are in December.  And to write to you, I just set my iTunes on “Shuffle” and hit Start, and guess what popped up?

“Hello Dolly” from – you guessed it – “Hello Dolly!”

Oh yes, while I may be a newly-minted punk-rocker on the outside, I am still a middle-aged gay man on the inside.

I’ve memorized the entire thing.  And now as I type this, the crimson-suited waiters are forming their kick line, and Babs Streisand (“Dolly”) is swaying back and forth in her dazzling, curvaceous glittery gold evening dress.  Gloved arms flowing softly to the sides, feathered headdress wafting in the air above her perfectly sculpted macrame hair-do.

“Dolly’l never go away, Dolly’l never go away, Dolly’l never go away agaaaaaiiiinn…”

Yes, I own this movie.  I OWN IT.  And I only own three movie musicals – if you count “Purple Rain” as a movie musical, that is.  Otherwise, I only own two – “Hello Dolly” and “Fiddler on the Roof.”

Oh, don’t even get me started with “Fiddler.”

BUT mostly I’m excited about the fact that we are officially releasing the DEBUT ALBUM from the happy problem TOMORROW! 

(I am the segue Queen, people.)  (Or not so much.)
