week 7 fan pics

That’s right, WEEK SEVEN!!
Yes, the tour is over….but it’s a gift that keeps on giving
I haven’t  looked at half the pictures that you’ve taken, OR I’ve taken
For now, I’ll just post a few here that I have stolen seen so far

I do plan to do a tour wrap up and also post an update on how the  filming is going this week for the RHYTHMS & ROOTS Ireland episode. (Yes Ireland peeps…..we’re STILL HERE!)
(CLICK HERE to follow R&R on Facebook)
I’ll get to all that soon…
And a new FUCK IT UP FRIDAY is on the way!
I’m also going to try and squeeze some Christmas shopping somewhere in there too
It may sound a bit overwhelming….but I’ve got that shit covered
I’m also typing this from the pub
So yeah, this mole’s in control baby!


 

what a corker cork!

Stick a fork in us
We are done!
I should probably say, stick a CORK in us, as our show there….the FINAL show of the WHOLE TOUR was in the fabulous city of CORK, here in Ireland

At the beautiful Cork Opera House
The venue for operas, all sorts of fancy schmancy shows
And us
Even the backstage mirror is all ornate-y

No, this doesn’t mean 4 = 1 = 5
It’s 4, 1
Not the 411
It’s 41
Forty One
As in, show number forty one!

And what a pearler is was
A room full of people that laughed loud and often
A crowd that gave us WAY more than we gave them Including the Blues Brothers
The fuck?
Is that like a hint for me to get my arse back home to Chicago?


This is here is the face of two happy kids
A bit tired
But so happy

And as a sure-fire sign that the tour is indeed over
My gig clothes have been binned
And before you say anything about the starving kids in Africa that I should have donated my tranny wardrobe to
I have been wearing this stuff forever. Like, EVERY night on this tour
It’s worn out. There’s holes in it
The bling has all fallen off
And it smells suspiciously like farts and donuts

It’s all probably still in the bin backstage if you REALLY want it
Ewwww.
Don’t panic too much though. I kept the shoes
What do you think I am, a monster??

Hey Cork, big sloppy kisses and cuddles to all of you
Thank you!
