Teaming two up and coming singer-songwriters, San Diego based Christopher Leyva and Montana’s Taylor Brown, the Split Personality tour will take in ten countries in nine months, with multiple cities in each.

A true collaboration, Leyva and Brown will team up in performance with Brown playing his own material and providing backing for both perfomers with live lead electric guitar ,piano and live loops of drums and accompaniements – no prerecorded tracks.   

Fans will be able to follow the duo’s exploits via a daily web blog, with a film maker on hand to document the journey from start to finish. Two albums will be released to coincide with this tour. Leyva’s “Black and Gold” his third solo effort, available at all the usual places online and in stores, is an ambitious double album, featuring a disc of pop material and a second disc of instrumentals. Leyva and Brown will also release a limited edition covers album, with songs from Ryan Adams, Oasis, Beatles, Leonard Cohen,Michael jackson and many more, available exclusively at their shows.

Though classified as singer songwriters, due to the occasional sighting of an acoustic guitar, what Brown and Leyva create is classic pop and rock, recast for the modern era. If you like music that’s strong on hooks and melodies, guitars and voices plus mixes with the new world of edgy electronics, The Split Personality tour should not be missed.

Best Joke of 2010 – so far!

The devil made me do it!

The devil made me do it!

John Howard, Queen Elizabeth, and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell.

While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for.

The devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.

Putin asks to call   Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he is

finished the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so

Putin writes him a check.

Next Queen Elizabeth calls England and talks for 30 minutes. When she

is finished the devil informs her that the cost is 6 million dollars, so

she writes him a check.

Finally John Howard gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he is

finished the devil informs him that the cost is $5.00.

When Putin hears this he goes ballistic and asks the devil why Howard got to call Australia so cheaply.

The devil smiles and replies: “Since Rudd took over, the country has gone to hell, so it’s a local call.

There are Love Stories and then there are Love Stories…

You're feeling shy?

You're feeling shy?

Oh, you saw JAWS - yes, that was me!

Oh, you saw JAWS - yes, that was me!

Good boy! (What else could he say! What would you have said?)

Good boy! (What else could he say! What would you have said?)

I’d love to see what this guy has on his dating profile. I’m guessing it would read something like this:

Profession: Top Rate Dentist

About me: I like living on the edge and love outdoor adventures. I’m at one with nature. Looking for excitement in a relationship. Will travel the many seas to be with the one for me.

And yes, this did happen in Australia. And no, most of us stick to the normal everyday boring (but generally safe!) cats, dogs and some venture as far as guinea pigs and rabbits. job that’s all his…

 But there again, we are famous for the likes of Crocodile Dundee, Steve Irwin and Malcom Douglas, so there must be something in the water…

I’ve heard of the horse whisperer. This fellow must be the shark whisperer. It’s a job that’s all his!

New Year’s Resolutions to beat – what is yours?

cat-ponders-his-new-years-resolutions

cat-ponders-his-new-years-resolutions

Thanks to all the girls and guys who have been busy making some New Year’s Resolutions and who sent me some to share with you all. Please add your own on here. We’d love to see what are the most interesting, the funniest, the ‘best’ and the most practical New Year’s Resolutions – and the one’s most likely to hold fast for the whole year!

1 Break your addiction with being on Facebook 24/7 (so does that apply to the other 299,999,999 FB addictees too?)

2 Quit smoking (now that’s a good thing in more ways than one – are you up to the challenge – I hope so)

3 This one a friend from Bournemouth (UK) sent to me – can you relate – I know I can sometimes!

Stop trying to use 7 arms while driving the car
You don’t have 7 arms, you only have 2. It is not physically possible to 1. steer, 2. change geers, 3. eat breakfast, 4. drink really hot coffee, 5. read a map, 6. re-tune the radio, 7. talk on you mobile phone

Maybe it should have been 8 arms – forgot doing nailpolish at the lights!

4 The perennial – I’m going to lose 35lbs this year. Did you know it takes a cut of 500 calories a day in your diet to shed 1lb a week? What are you waiting for then!

5 This one I’d like to join in on – see how many new cocktails I can taste in a year. I have just the man for the job to create them for us too – David Brogan, the Cocktail King extraordinaire, – where are you when we need you…

6 Get out of debt – HUH! – along with the rest of the planet, courtesy of the Financial Crisis!

7 Use my Wii Fit to get fit. (Um – but does that mean I have to get it out of the box?)

8 I would like to learn something new this year – do you think they mean other than how to stay out later than 2am every Friday and Saturday nights!

9 I was sent this one by a friend who had read Bill Murray the celebrity’s New Year’s resolution – but it is relevant to ALL of us – just think of the children in Africa starving and dying every day and you will remember this resolution always:

Bill Murray
“To try to remember to look down on myself and realize how good I’ve got it.”
 
10 Read this one by Tony Abbott the latest Opposition Leader in Australia: do everything possible to win the 2010 election – but that’s his job!
However, the rate at which they change Opposition Leaders, I wonder if he’ll be there by the time the Election is called! Monsieur Rudd may not have to work too hard!
11 I’m going to meet 5 new people every day (Hope he/she has their SHI Symbol on – makes it so much easier to strike up a conversation!)
12 I will walk the dog morning and evening which will help me lose weight because I want to meet the man of my dreams this year. (Suggestion: place a SHI Symbol on your dog. Dogs (or a baby in a pusher!) are the perfect guy stoppers in parks)

We’d love to see what your resolution is – please do share with us here your New Year’s Resolution for 2010.
