Samantha interviewed Jonathan Coulton for our TV show. I'm a huge fan, so of course I was completely flipping out. During the interview, she had him call me to ask which song he should play on the show. I missed the call (I was in Georgetown, trying to get some sleep), but Jonathan left a message. I'm still bummed about missing it.

Anyway, when I got to LA, she gave me the Best Gift Ever:

Here's a sign from a Wendy's bathroom near Cal Poly. The very definition of irony.

Miley's teacher, Linda, has accidentally become my movie buddy. I went to see "Charlie Wilson's War" in Cleveland, and she was there for the same movie at the same time. So we watched it together. Fun! Then again in Georgetown, when I went to see "There Will Be Blood," we ended up at the same showing. I look forward to accidentally seeing something with her again soon. Here she is with my Mom at the Vegas show:

Billy Ray played with us at Vegas show #1. We love working with him. He's one of the nicest people I've ever met.

L to R: Miley, Billy Ray and Brandi Cyrus

The band says I have the largest family in the world. Nearly every show I've had some family showing up. Pictured here is our big ol' Vegas reunion:

L to R: Mom, me, Aunt Elsie, Dad, Aunt Nancy, Aunt Ivy and Aunt Jessie

  1. Mike,

    Love how my music worlds collide. Jon Coulton was in my college singing group and I was privileged enough to get to sing one of his early classics, "Lunchlady", that was arranged for the group. Have not seen him much since he became famous, but a truly talented and sweet guy -- if he wanted to write hit pop songs, I am sure he could but I think he just enjoys writing about giant squids too much.


  2. You should send that sign into Passive Aggressive notes... even though it's not one they will probably post it.
