Yesterday I was talking to a friend about musicals. You probably know my stance on musicals, but in case you missed it, I'm not a fan.
It turns out my friend had the Sound of Music album when she was little and played it over and over again. She acted out parts. She sang. Endlessly.
Finally her brother, who just couldn't take it anymore, threatened to break her album. And then he did something I see Lucy do all the time with Studley - he offered her something else to distract her from the annoying thing she was doing. He gave her rock and roll. She specifically mentioned The Velvet Underground.
I told this story to another friend about an hour later. She didn't have an older brother but there was a cousin or a friend's brother or someone who did the same thing for her. She also mentioned the Velvet Underground (as well as Boomtown Rats).
They are both in bands.
