Well I've gone and done it. This past weekend I inadvertently created a monster... of ROCK!!
You see, we have a Tivo subscription to Austin City Limits
, which for 33 years has been broadcasting concerts filmed live in Austin, Texas. The current season of the show has been running since October and has featured a bunch of great performances from the likes of REM, Gnarls Barkley, Thievery Corporation, Bloc Party, and others. Whenever a new episode pops up on Tivo, I let it run, and Damiano pays no attention to it. That is, until he saw Dave.
Yup, Dave Grohl and his merry band of Foo Fighters tear the roof off the house during their ACL performance
, and it didn't go unnoticed by the lil' guy. So now, every morning when we wake up, and again every evening when we return home, Damiano runs into the living room and asks for "mo' rock... pish". I, of course, have to oblige, and we jam out for at least a song or two. A few things that I've learned about D's Foo Fighters preferences this week are: 1) the only slow/acoustic song that he will enjoy and dance thorough is "Skin and Bones", 2) his favorite songs include the end of "But Honestly", "All My Life" and "The Pretender" (which all ROCK), 3) he doesn't like when Dave leaves the screen ("Uh oh!"), and 4) the boy loves to throw his hands in the air, bang his head and ROCK OUT!!!
