some just don't get it do they?

on April 2, 2008 - 11:27am

Yeah, so I was trying to explain to a co-worker who likes Josh about how a group of us went down to the local PBS station when they aired LATG and manned the phones. I don't think I have ever been laughed at that much before. I mean she just roared. I have to admit, I was a little hurt. But, in true Grobie fashion, I made no excuses for my supporting Josh. Still, some just don't get it do they??

On a side note, I finally got to see the video up on the splash page for Awake. Sigh. Still can't hear anything, but just watching him really brought back the great memories from Milwaukee. I didn't realize how much I need a Josh fix!!

Sweeney Todd comes out tomorrow

on March 31, 2008 - 11:52am

So I'm sitting here on this dreary Monday in Chicago and am so excited about Sweeney Todd coming out on DVD tomorrow. That will hold me over until Awake Live comes out. Maybe.

I have to say I was a little disappointed that they didn't have the info up on the news page for pre-ordering. It's getting hard not to hit the put into cart button on Amazon!
Sigh.....maybe later. I just hope FOJG doesn't play an April Fool's joke on us!!

Awake SIngle

on March 25, 2008 - 12:03pm

Can I just say whoa. I mean Awake is one of my favorite songs in Josh's collection, but I've always loved the live version the best. This recording definitely lives up to expectations. I had to stop typing my reports and just listen. Too misty-eyed to continue. Definitely one of those moments where I close my eyes and totally feel what it is about Josh's music that makes it so special. I seriously can not wait until I can get my hands on this DVD!

Easter with Josh

on March 24, 2008 - 3:31pm

So we're waiting for our table at a local reception hall for Easter Brunch and what do my ears pick up over the din of the crowd---that's right! I heard "Never Let Go" and thought hmm, somebody must have the cd on, cause it's rare to hear that on a station.
For the next 2 hours, we were treated to a medley of Josh and Michael Buble with a few songs by Il Divo mixed in. It was kinda funny. Everything was off of Closer too. I'd hear Josh and my sister would go "Josh must be on, Jill's got that grin again."

The hysterical part was that my 10 month old niece would clap everytime they played his songs. My sister says she claps for music and we figured she must have been able to hear him the most because of how powerful his voice is. Personally, I just think she knows great music when she hears it.

Wow, I just heard about South Africa. So sad. I hope that everyone that is still making their trip has a great time anyway. I have a feeling that Josh would be there in spirit for you guys.

I am equally impressed that Josh posted. I don't remember who said this but I really do believe that it mattered a great deal to those who are going to miss out on the experience. Although I wasn't attending, the fact that Josh took the time only reinforces my belief that he is a stand up kinda guy.

I guess that's all i have to say. I have a feeling that when Josh returns to South Africa, it will be a great performance!
