| "Brian-Buster" Recommendations"
Must See: "Black Mass" (2015). This movie should have gotten a lot
more consideration for Best Picture.
Must Avoid: "Ride Along 2 (2016)". Do I REALLY need to give an
explanation? Ok, if I must.....Ice Cube and Kevin Hart.

Tasteless Jokes of the Month
- Kathy, pregnant with her first child, was paying a visit to her
obstetrician's office. When the exam was over, she shyly began, "My
husband wants me to ask you..." "I know, I know." the doctor said,
placing a reassuring hand on her shoulder, "I get asked that all the time.
Sex is fine until late in the pregnancy." "No, that's not it at all," Kathy
confessed. "He wants to know if I can still mow the lawn."
- These two guys go to a whorehouse. The first guy goes in then comes
out and says, "My wife is better." The second guy goes in then comes
out and says, "You know what? Your wife IS better."
Well, let’s start by saying the updates have lagged (to say the least).
However, I am now back and things seem to be on the mend. “Where
have you been?”, you ask. Let’s run through the time line.
First, I completed my last (thankfully) show in Southern Maryland. First,
thanks to the folks at the venue for NOT advertising us at all. Second,
thanks to all of my local “acquaintances” for not coming out. You made
it easier for me to clean out my Facebook friend’s list.
But there was some good stuff. Thanks to the folks who did come out,
both first timers and “repeat offenders” alike. Met some great new
folks and converted some new Brian-tologists. The show itself went
surprisingly well, but if I EVER perform in southern Maryland again, I will
not do it for less than six figures.
That was followed by a short stint in the hospital. All seemed well………
Then the show in central Maryland…history was made. For the first
time in 16 years of performing, I lost my voice the day before the show.
I can’t stress enough how great the folks I worked with were that night.
Everyone came through! Thank you to the venue for awesome
advertising and hard work! To DJ Bernie for taking care of business
with the sound. To David Gourley for making a triumphant return to the
stage. And to Just Frank and Joey LoFaro for taking tearing it up on
stage again. Central Maryland….we will be back!
Then I went to Vegas!
Looking forward to hearing from all of you. Be on the lookout for
updates on some upcoming shows and appearances.
Till next time......drinks are on me,
| Brian's Bucket List!
Just a random list of things Brian wants "to do" before
