Jonesin'.....

.... it appears that I'll be attending another concert at the Tennessee Theatre next month..... and it should prove to be quite a bit different from all of the previous concerts I've seen there...

.... so far I've been blessed to have seen John Prine, John Hiatt, Nanci Griffith, Doc Watson, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Gordon Lightfoot, Hal Holbrook pretend to be Mark Twain, and various and sundry comedians...... but next month?.... lets just say that the concert isn't until the 9th of March and The Missus is already straightening out her unmentionable drawer in a frantic search for a suitable pair of panties to lob lustily towards the stage.....

.... that's right, folks..... in a couple of weeks I will be sitting in an audience - mild-manneredly sipping my Scotch and water - while hordes of middle-aged women fling their knickers over my head towards one Mr. Tom Jones... oh, I cannot even begin to imagine the sheer amount of pre-menopausal booty-shaking that I am going to be forced to witness.....

.... it promises to be quite a traumatic experience..... but it should make some most excellent blogfodder... good god, see how downright selfless I am for y'all?.....

.... I mean, just check this shit out, rubberneckers.....

..... mercy...... and hey, let us not forget this one.....

...... "come back here... stand on that chair.... oh, baby, that's right.... "

..... whoaaa.......

.... I'll be sure and try to sit near the back of the theater so that if there is a stampede towards the stage, I'll be safe.....

Bullshit So Far

The back of the theatre would be wise, lest you be forever known as Eric the Pantyheaded. He ain't Neil Diamond, but, trust me, he will DO.

Meh. I guess I'm the only woman on the planet that just does not get the whole Tom experience.

I'd be more excited to see Hal do Twain again. That was awesome!

You should have titled this post:

"Eric the Pantyhead" ROFLMAO!! Holy crap, that's good stuff. And I guess funnier to me too, as when I was reading it I thought, "Eric is going to get hit in the head with panties that night..." Erica cracks me up.

Like Sugar Britches, Tom doesn't do anything for me.

And I'm patting myself on the back that I actually know who Tom Jones is. My rock is not THAT big!

Same venue, swap sexes. UT-Knoxville. '71 or '72 maybe Ike&Tina Turner. Talk about working an audience. Tina Turner could do it. Oozed sex. The testoserone level in that place went up about 500%. Men grown were standing on their seats going nuts. It was like a horde of viking berserkers in heat. Mean while wives and girl friends were sitting quietly, tapping their feet, and fuming. Lord, we paid for it later but it was worth it.

That first video cracks me up. I couldn't help but wonder whether it was supposed to remind me of a Weird Al vid, or not.

As for the show, I'd say I don't envy you... but on second thought, there are some benefits to subjecting yourself to such tortures.

Yes, definitely back of the theater. Back row if you can. Else, I suggest a giant prophylactic over your head just in case any of the panties are... you know... like, used. No need to take chances. Elisson has his colander, Eric has his panties... heh...

Haven't see so many flying undies since Beans' bachellor party back in '75.

The strangest part of this...

the fact I pushed play.

Beyond that I was surprised to see so many folks standing, screaming and dancing in the second clip....

Sometimes I am amazed at the sheer dorkiness of folks.

Not my cup of tea personally. I think it's just the style of his music. I can't tell you for sure though. Doesn't another band usually open for the main event? Curious who that will be.

Grab yourself a good handful of panties and we'll auction 'em off chez moi!
