The letter that proves I pretty much believe anything I'm told.

Dear Mr. Lynne-
Sorry I thought you were dead. It appears I had false information. I blame my girl Blondie, who is my reference for any and all music trivia. She fed me this info and I believed her. We will be re-evaluating her status as pop culture queen in the coming weeks and a full report will follow.
Though, I just went upstairs to inform my Mr. that you were, indeed, alive and hopefully well, and the following conversation took place:

Me: "You were wrong- Jeff Lynne isn't dead."
Him: "Yes he is. He's been dead for a long time."
Me: "Nuh-uh. I just Wikipedia'd him and he's still around."
Him: "I doubt that."
Me: "I'll double check, but I think you're wrong."

I double checked my info. I am right. I'm glad I'm right- both for my love of being right and for you, Mr. Lynne. Congratulations and welcome back from the beyond.

As to the whole "becoming your rockstar concubine" thing, let me discuss it with the Mr. and see if we can't come to some sort of arrangement. He's a very understanding man- as anyone who has read my blog can well imagine. We'll see how that goes. One only gets so many chances to be a concubine of any sort, and I'm not getting any younger...

Anyways, I was wrong and I apologize.
Sincerely yours,



Dear Blondie-

You're still my pop-culture queen. Always.

The Electric Light Orchestra was the first rock band I heard, and I man, would shake my 5 year old-booty! Jeff Lynne will always be in my heart!

Many laughs from the state of non-existence. No need to apologize luv. As a matter of fact, it inspired me to write my own epitaph.

Passengers as you pass by
Remember you were born to die
As you are now so once was I
As I am now you soon must be
Prepare to die and follow me

To address the Paramour Dream Festival - love comes in many colors, I suspect you have already chosen your color wisely.

Peace and Carrots...

I had to click the Wikipedia link just to see who Jeff Lynne IS, never mind whether he's alive or dead.

Obviously there are holes in my classic rock literacy.

Lollie said...

Has this been posted before, or am I having some wicked deja vu? Or maybe a brain tumor?

Whiskeymarie said...

A benign tumor, methinks.
Nope, never before.

Flenker said...

I think you would make a splendid rockubine. Roncubine?

I get all my information from the internet. Primarily Wiki. And then I claim to KNOW what I'm talking about. Because if three million people view an article written by another reader and don't dispute it, then it should be set in stone. That's just how I roll.

Funny you should mention Jeff Lynne. just had an update on the Traveling Wilburys a couple of hours ago. Click on CNN. com & search Wilbury video. Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne are being interviewd. Very much alive!


PS Love your blog. You make me smile!

J.L. (if it's really you):

Glad we straightened this out.
So very gracious of you to understand my retardedness.
And, again- glad you're not dead...

Your devoted, theoretical concubine.
