Jamaica Trip: Hanson Show #2

The theme for Hanson show #2 was Members Only EP songs or as Hanson called it, “Deep Cuts”.  Since 2003 each year Hanson releases a members only EP to fan club members. Typically these EPs contain several never before released tracks some of which were performed on tour, some are brand new.  Over the past 3 or so years they have done an EP release at the May Members Only Event in  Tulsa and played the songs off the EPs so I had heard some of them but there are also quite a few that I had never heard.  And yes, I did bring a list so I could cross songs off as I heard them.  They had given us a list of 77 songs to vote on for the Setlist voting night and I figured that they would probably stick to playing those 77 songs over the 3 shows.  Of those 77, 11 I had never heard before.

This show actually kicked off with back-to-back songs I had never heard before – In A Way – which was performed on pretty much every Live & Electric tour show EXCEPT the one that I went to as well as End of the Line, which as far as I know has never been performed live before.  It was all downhill from there (although, not really because a lot of these songs are not “staples” and have only been played a time or two before) until the encore when they busted out with what was the shortest Hanson song ever – Watershed. (And not on my list of 11)

After this show we did go to the bonfire, but the burgers were nothing like what I had remembered (aka the best burgers I’ve ever had) so we didn’t stick around for very long.

Book Review: Mr. Virile and the Girl Next Door

virileMr Virile is Dane Martin – who runs the blog Mr Virile. Holly Winters is Girl Next Door – another blogger.  Both of them blog about relationships.  Both of them have different ideas on relationships.  The two end up meeting and don’t quite hit it off, but they are pretending to be cozy in order to promote their upcoming book releases.  Except that Dane is convinced that he will get Holly to hook up with him.  Holly is pretty sure this won’t happen.  She knows his type and wants nothing to do with him.  Except she can give advice she just can’t take it.

Who will end up right? Will Dane get Holly in to bed or will Holly prove that he is just like all the other jerks out there?  (You can probably take a guess as to who is right…)

This was a relatively short book and a quick read.  I don’t want to give away too many of my thoughts on it because it will give away the story! But it was interesting to see the evolution of the characters relationship based on the first time they met when Holly thought she had Dane all figured out, to the end when Holly realized that everything she thought she knew about Dane was not right at all.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
