On Friday KISS106.1 had Ferras in studio. Evidently his song "Hollywood's Not America" is played when contestants are kicked off American Idol (this I would not know since I don't watch it). Anyway, he was a really cool, down-to-earth guy and when it came time to perform I was able to watch him via the Kiss Studio Cam.
Seriously. Amazing range - sweet runs of ad libbing - excellant on the keyboard - loved it. Was very excited to get his cd which he said was being released in stores on April 1st. SO LONG. :)
Anyway, later I get an Outlook reminder for an artist performing for any Amazon people that want to go - it's Ferras! So I got to go check him out like 20 feet from me. SUPER fun. I even cheated and videotaped but Blogger doesn't like me right now.
He sang a few songs I hadn't heard when he was at Kiss, so that was fun - then we got to meet him and get autographs/pics! (Not sure why we look so pasty...)
So that was SUPER. Anyway, I got a message on Myspace yesterday saying his song was available to download from AmazonMP3 or iTunes - it's called Aliens and Rainbows.
So yeah...good times. Ferras! You'll like him.
Anything else while I'm here?
Umm...still sore from kickboxing on Monday. Went last night and did pretty well - felt I could have pushed harder though. I really like the gal that teaches on Wednesdays so even though I think I should skip tonight, I doubt I will.
Sing it with me - "It's the final countdown!!!!"
