No, not the movie, although I did love that movie. Wasn't it great? That's when I first saw Joey Lauren Adams, and do you know that until now, until this very moment, every time I've seen her in recent movies I've thought, "Now just WHERE did I first see her???" Man, it was really bugging me, so yay for my serendipitous discovery! It'll allow me to sleep better tonight, it will. So have you seen Chasing Amy? If you haven't, you run down to your locally-owned movie store right now and rent it. And if they don't have it, tell them to get with it, man, and locate it for you.
But that's not what I want to talk about. I'm Chasing a different Amy. Amy Steinberg. That's the Amy I'm chasing.
A blog link sent me to her myspace page the other day. She's already my myspace friend (we're, like, TIGHT doncha know) but I've never heard her perform live so I decided to check out her Upcoming Shows. It went something like this...
Ohmygosh she's going to be in Chicago this week! Oh wait, she'll be there on the 21st and I'll be in St. Louis by then. Shoot.
Ohmygosh she's going to be in St. Louis on the 24th! Oh wait, we're leaving on the 24th to come home. Shoot.
Ohmygosh she's going to be in Florida in March! She'll be in Tampa and I'm going to be in Tampa! Oh wait, she'll be there on the 15th and I won't get there until the 19th. Shoot.
Ohmygosh she'll be in Florida for another show later that week and I'll still be there! Oh wait, that gig is across the state, 200 miles away. Shoot.
And by then, good people, my "Shoot!" had really turned to "Sh*t!" and I was emotionally exhausted from the repeated let-down.
You have to admit, it's a little odd that I get that close in 3 different states but can't quite seal the deal.
Oh well, I'm off to St. Louis for a few days. Be sure to rent Chasing Amy while I'm gone so we can discuss it when I get back. Try not to miss me too much - I know it's a scary thought to go a few days without reading a post about a boy in a box or inhaling chicken sh*t while bike riding or why Betty Crocker ain't got nuthin' on me, but I guess you'll just have to try.
Oh, and if you see Amy? Please tell her I'm looking for her.
