Pheaturing Tim Chad and Sherry

Hey there, welcome to a Wednesday entry of the Peverett Phile. Before I start I want to thank everyone who sent well-wishes for me and my wife Jen who had surgery yesterday. And a special thanks to the staff at Winnie Palmer Hospital in Orlando for taking such good care of her. I was wondering in the waiting room why there weren't any male patients and then hours later it dawned on me... it's a women's hospital. They have children's hospitals, women hospitals but no men hospitals. We are screwed. Also, the gift shop in the hospital had all girlie stuff and baby stuff in there, nothing for guys to look at. There should be a CD shop or a book shop in the place. They would make a killing. They needed some kind of lounge with pool tables and crap to occupy the waiting guys. I was occupied enough though, entertaining Logan.
So, the other day was President’s Day, a day that we celebrate America’s presidential history by enjoying a great deal on mattresses. Scientists are saying that being bored can actually be bad for your health. You should probably stop reading this blog. Here's news from here in Florida, also know as America's Wang. There’s a 73-year-old man in Florida who has been charged with robbing the same bank three times. In his defense, he actually only robbed the bank once, he just went back twice to use the bathroom. Director Kevin Smith was thrown off a plane for being too big. Let’s just say Fat Tuesday for Kevin Smith is just “Tuesday.” I understand it’s frustrating if you’re sitting next to a big person on a plane and you’re crammed, but if you’re more than four feet tall on a plane, you’re going to be crammed either way. Have you been watching the Olympics? I have mixed feelings about the Olympics. I have a hard time taking an athlete seriously when he’s dressed like Lady Gaga. Sometimes it feels like the judges randomly pick a score. I’m like, “Are you high?” Of course, you can’t judge anything if you’re high — unless you’re Paula Abdul. Skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, these are not sports. They’re vacation activities. I feel like I’m watching someone’s home movies. They showed the biathlon today, a combination of cross-country skiing and shooting rifles, which is known to Sarah Palin as “commuting.” I am exited about the Olympics being in Canada, but I am even more excited about the 2012 Olympics being in London. I saw the logo for the London Olympics and all I could think of it looks like Lisa Simpson giving head to Bart. Seriously. Check it out and you'll see what I mean.
Everybody is talking about the luge guy who died in the practice run, but no one is talking about the big ice skating accident. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here is a picture of it. I will warn you, though, it might make you sick.

The maker's of those inspirational posters are cashing in on the Olympics and I am sure they re selling thousands. Check out this latest one.

And now, from the home office in Port Jefferson, NY, here is this week's...

Dick Francis
October 31, 1920 - February 14, 2010
A small funeral is planned.
Dale Hawkins
August 22, 1936 - February 13, 2010
They called him the inventor of "swamp rock boogie". Impressive.
Alexander McQueen
March 17, 1969 - February 11, 2010
A fashion designer named McQueen. Can you believe he was gay?
Charlie Wilson
June 1, 1933 - February 10, 2010
He won the battle but lost the... oh wait - no he didn't.

Italian philosopher Giordano Bruno burned at the stake at Campo di Fiore in Rome, likely because ecclesiastical authorities were alarmed at his rambling and somewhat insane ideas, coupled with rejection of accepted authority. Exactly what the charges against him were are lost to history, but likely involve theological heresies rather than astronomical.
Forty-nine people trampled to death at a soccer stampede in Cairo, after crowds tear down entry barriers to the Zamalek vs Dukla game.
The cinematic masterpiece Bill And Ted's Excellent Adventure starring Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter opened in theaters.
An overcrowded ferry carrying up to 1,500 people sank off Haiti. Only 285 people were known to have survived.
The decomposing corpse of Zviad Gamsakhurdia, first president of the Republic of Georgia, is exhumed from a temporary grave in Djikhaskari. His wife refuses an autopsy, but western journalists note a bullet wound in the side of Zviad's head. Officially listed as suicide, the wife also claims he was murdered. Another government minister oddly states the death was by cancer with the head shot administered post-mortem.
After living 98 years, my grandmother Nanny Rose passes away. She outlived her two daughters, son-in-law and her husband.

Below is a copy of the latest book in the P.P.B.C. The fifth book I might add. Anyway, you can purchase it from Please check it out, if especially you are a "Doctor Who" fan. The next entry of the blog next week Frazer will be a guest.

Today's guests is the band Tim Chad & Sherry from Nashville, Tennessee, who you will be playing next on March 4th at Bettys. Please welcome to the Phile... Tim Chad & Sherry.

Me: Hello, welcome to the Phile. So, who am I talking to? Tim or Sherry?

Tim Chad & Sherry: Tim Chad and Sherry is the name of our band. I’ve been known to appear as Tim Chad from time to time, usually at night. Sherry is a boy.

Me: Who are you guys? How many of you are in the band?

Tim Chad & Sherry: We once were the Silver Jews, or SJ “band” I should say. DCB has buried that so our mission has shifted to step-love dance grooves, melodies and romance. There is just something about a simple love song with a beat.

Me: I interviewed Patty from the Spiritual Family Reunion. Are you two part of SFR as well?

Tim Chad & Sherry: Patty is a dear friend of mine. She helped with background vocals at some shows and is very supportive of TC & S .

Me: I downloaded the album "mono love" from iTunes. Where was it recorded and what can you tell me about it's title?

Tim Chad & Sherry: "mono love" is a collection of songs we have worked on over a long period. It was mostly recorded with Pete Cummings in his living room. A couple tracks were recorded at my house. I wanted the title to have eight letters.

Me: Tell me a little about how you two met. Are you dating?

Tim Chad & Sherry: No we are just friends.

Me: I cannot figure out what type of music you guys play. What do you call it?

Tim Chad & Sherry: I do like that our music is hard to categorize but it makes getting the album out there difficult. How about “step-love”?

Me: Any new albums in the future?

Tim Chad & Sherry: I’m working on it right now with my friend Lonnie Hutchins. I’m excited about the material.

Me: Thanks for doing this. Any websites you'd like to mention?

Tim Chad & Sherry: Thank you, Jason, for the questions and your interest in T C & S. We have myspace page, you’ll find some new songs there soon.

Okay, kids, that's it for another entry. I am sure my wife has a list of things she wants me to do. Thanks to Tim Chad & Sherry and I hope to have them on the Phile again one day. Also thanks to Wikipedia. The Phile will be back on Saturday... yes, Saturday with the guest Frazer Hines from "Doctor Who" and author of the P.P.B.C. book "Hines Sight". Have a good weekend, spread the word, not the turd. Bye love you bye.
