As you already know, Mo Phillips is a super rad mega star in our house, so when we heard that he and his band would be kicking off the St Johns Bizarre we were pretty dang psyched. It didn't matter that we also had to ready ourselves to be in the parade (with F's preschool), first we'd have to hit the St Johns plaza and get funky with Mo. Oh, and eat a hand-dipped corndog, because that is what parade day is all about, ya'll. Here's a video of our sweet friend Lux twirlin' to the song Twirlin' which appears on Mo's brand spakin' new album Monster Suit.
Because Mo is a totally awesome dude, he gave me a CD to give to one of YOU. All you have to do is leave a comment here answering one of the following questions: What's your favorite Mo song? What's your favorite carnival food? Got a Worst Party Ever Thrown story to rival Mo's (that the title of a song on the new album)? If you were a float in a parade, what would you be?
Okay so answer one of those four questions here, and next Monday I'll come back an announce the winner (using random.org's number generator).
Also, if you happen to be one of the many clients and/or friends I'll run into at Pickathon this year, and you think Mo would be a perfect fit for a morning kiddo performance, email Pickathon and tell them so: firstname.lastname@example.org. Seriously, Dudes, it would be so fun to have him there!
PS- if you're wondering where my excited Mo-loving girl is in that video, she's clinging to my leg. She rushed to Mo and gave him a handful of flowers when we arrived, and shouted at him once during the performance, but she is also exceptionally shy and does not twirl in public! Thankfully, she wasn't too shy to belt out the lyrics to the songs she knew, and I think she let go of my hand and shook her hips a few times during the last song.
UPDATE: The winner is comment #7, Stacy Smelser! Congratulations, Stacy!!!
