Open Mic Night Guest: Mitch Berg
Things I probably should not admit: -- I love blind dates. Going to a blind date is like walking down the stairs on Christmas morning when you're a kid; you know the odds are you'll get more underwear than cool toys, but it's still fun wondering what's in the package. I don't always like how they end, but the run-up to a blind date is one of life's great pleasures. -- I love "Blind Date", the TV show. -- I thought Marisa Tomei deserved the Oscar. -- I just taught myself "Comfortably Numb" on the bagpipes. -- I also once "serenaded" a woman I was (briefly) dating on the pipes. -- Not only did I, too, love the Bangles - I got backstage passes to one of their gigs, and hit shamelessly on Vicki. Or Lori. Maybe both. -- My old band did country versions of "Erotic City" and "Anarchy in the UK" and a lounge-jazz version of "Bastards of Young" -- I have had at least one date with 76 different women in the last four years. No, 77. -- Although I am a really good rock'nroll guitar player, I taught myself to play off a John Denver record. That should be
way too much enough for now.
