Okay, folk…this has been one helluva week in real life and in Bette life.
I’ve got music changed out in the jukebox, so please visit Mister D’s Bar…he’s gotta helluva singer in there:-)
The BootlegBetty Records is a little different this time because it’s karaoke time…you get to do the singing! I’ve got about 3 semi-hits of Bette’s in there that you normally don’t see…so sing out, BetteHeads, Sing OUT!!!! Maybe those of you who are brave enough should send me your renditions…we’ll have some kind of door prize like a Bootleg Betty Messenger Bag or Thong for the best entry…could be fun and/or scary!!!!:-)

There are tons of reviews in the tour review section…just added a bunch of MSG reviews and Pics…so enjoy….
Darrell is back on at Bette on the Boards and he’s whipped up his own version of a Kiss My Brass Page…he always outdoes me, but we are a team…so there!!!! He’s also looking for help in getting the itinerary for the Divine Miss Millineum (sp) together so he can make another fabulous tour page. So if anyone can help him out with this….please do:
Thanks to Rich for sparking my mind for some poll ideas…I didn’t do it exactly how he told me to do it, so I’m assuming I will be scolded…but there’s more to come…he’s given me a good amount of ideas…
There are some rumours about some tour dates….Grand Rapids, another show at MSG in March, and an added date to Boston as well in March…I’ll put those up when I get more confirmation…
Darrell, Snook, and I have decided not to share any audio and video of Kiss My Brass if we run into any out of respect for Ms. Midler and the band….esp while the tour is in Progress….I mean, how rude! So far, I don’t know of anyone doing this, but…To paraphrase Bette, our standards may be low, but we do have them…LOL I love that! And for God’s sake, don’t spend a fortune buying a bootleg on EBAY….it is almost a certain that one day Midlerobilia will get some and you can get it there and therefore contribute to Bette’s charity….NYRP
Okay…I think that’s it…you can all go back to watching American Idol now!
Love, Mister D
