from the mouth of Rufus Wainwright

"This next one's a country song," Rufus started. "I'm trying to save country from itself. It's kinda knawing its own arms off." The croud laughed as he pantomimed chewing his own hands. "It needs some new blood," he finished with a smile. When he plays 'country' songs, I think Rufus is more authentic than most artists in the 'country' genre. As great as he is though, I'm not sure if one Rufus can make up for the boatload of Dixie Chicks, Brooks and Dunns, and Travis Tritt's out there knawing their own arms off.

Last night's show was simply amazing. why God chose to bless one man with such an angelic voice is beyond me. couldn't I have been granted a fraction of that ability? oh well, at least I had the privledge of listening to that flip-flap clad angel. I could have listened all night, but the hour-and-a-half that I had last night were well worth it.

Oh yeah, and ben lee was like a 5 -foot-tall ball of pure entertainment.. Way to go lil' buddy.
