Tom Waits video - "Circus" written by Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan and narrated by Ken Nordine.    

Quote on Bobby McFerrin's website:  "Listening to Bobby McFerrin sing may be hazardous to your preconceptions.  Side effects may include unparalleled joy, a new perspective on creativity, rejection of the predictable, and a sudden, irreversible urge to lead a more spontaneous existence."

Play It Forward will host a benefit memorial concert for Tim Goshorn at the 20th Century in Oakley on Sunday, June 18th starting at 2:00PM according to their Facebook page.
