Crewmen, Set Your Teleblasters To Stun



Yes, that's Nora Jones singing a Willie Nelson song, and in a band named after Willie hisself. The Little Willies. They're going too fast for the lyrics, but what the hell, they look like they're having fun. And doesn't Jim Campilongo spank that plank? Good -- extra good.

Nora's retired now, of course. She sold twenty million copies (!) of her first record, electrifying an entire generation of mopey girls and holding down the 'eat ice cream from the tub while weeping' fort until Adele showed up, and immediately started paging through AARP brochures, most likely. 

By appearance alone, it's hard to picture that Nora Jones' father is Ravi Shankar. It's like finding a Faberge egg under a Colonel Sanders chicken. Life is full of such mysteries. I can't understand how my brother can look just like me, and still be so ugly.

Re. Nora, her sister Anoushka is gorgeous, too. Truly, a mystery for the ages.

I have seen her father in concert and in movies - I can see the resemblance, that's for sure, but there is no question that she is far better looking. He was 59 when she was born. Hmm...

Yikes!! Tele-Man must have one of those B-Bender string-stretcher devices installed - don't think he could get those pitch changes just with fingers!!
