4/14/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

_4/14 in a nutshell..._
Ska-de-wah! Maureen and Felicia get Mr. Chauffeured straight to the Vienna Woods to be taught the Ska, and Mr. Bond, _James_ Bond, shows up... you just know there's a who-o-ole lotta mashin' goin' on even BEFORE the party meets up with Baron von Skankin' Frank... and quite a bit o' double-dip would characterize what Sherwood B. Funn gets up to by way of kicking off the lounge-y Hour 2! Lounge head-on collides with Ska in the 4@4 Joey Altruda tribute saluting two of his bands, and April's GotchaSKAvered cover subject Al Capone gets run through in short order by the Hotknives this week... ouch!
