I'm doing one song at 8 PM Eastern tonight and teaching how to fold a cloth napkin like Downton Abbey - p.s. from Neil deGrasse Tyson
Here's the link and tonight's lineup:
Jim Caruso's Pajama Cast Party live at 8 PM Eastern:
OFFICIAL RUNNING ORDER
Miss Coco Peru
Ann Hampton Callaway
Ann Hampton Callaway is a legendary diva on the NYC cabaret scene. Word has it that tonight she'll be writing a song on the spot and singing it on the spot -- yes, the girl works without a net. I don't know the other performers, but I'm sure they're great, since Jim has been hosting this weekly open mic for 17 years. It's free -- and you always make a discovery when you watch this show.
p.s. last week I sent you Sandy Cash's brand new song/video, a tribute to the late astronomer Vera Rubin. Over the weekend none other than Neil deGrasse Tyson wrote to Sandy and said this:
"More Than Meets The Eye" -- a delightful, informative, and inspiring song that is.
It’s one thing for colleagues to remember you. But when artists remember you, too, that’s another level of importance in our culture. -- Neil deGrasse Tyson
If you haven't had a chance to look at it yet, here it is, and now might be the best time in your life to get a backyard telescope . . . they're on sale at Amazon . . . Vera Rubin built her own when she was 10 years old, and what a life she led.
"More Than Meet The Eye"
