A big part of every theme night party is trying to find music that enhances the experience but as long as the HQ gang is there behind the bar, K-Pop will inevitably take over as the night wears on. This year, however, will find Thursday night beginning and ending with K-Pop music and videos. Here is a taste of both. Thanks to the high production values in the videos, there are *lots* of costume ideas. And that, as Martha would say, is a good thing! :D

In the meantime, I will be putting together the soundtrack for our 1001 Arabian Nights party...

If you're a fan of this genre, send me suggestions! :D

I just sent off a request to join your facebook group. I'm interested in feeling out how we might fit in to your group, but I get a good vibe.

Last year we had lots of our friends and neighbors stopping by to enjoy a pancake breakfast and great company with a The Sound of Music backdrop. The contenders so far this year are Jesus Christ: Superstar and The Book of Mormon. Do you have an idea for a soundtrack more along the lines of this year's theme?
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat?

How do you guys feel about playa nudity? You seem like a pretty tame group... :D
Don't bore your friends with all your troubles. Tell your enemies instead, for they will delight in hearing about them.

LOL - Yep, that's us all right....tame as kittens. :D

And we're OK with you wandering in naked - as long as you're not wearing a shirt as an accessory!
