My boyfriend, Ray is a jazz musician. He's also a music teacher. He plays both electric and mostly upright bass.

Have you seen the book Everybody Poops? The Oops I farted reminded me of it!

Hi Leslie: That is so great! We have something else in common (along with Jess) -- our guys are into music. I think it is so wonderful to have great sounds in the house...mix that with the great smells/taste from our cooking & the senses are complete! Is he in a band? Where does he teach? Art teaches music production at BSU. I love the sound of upright bass. Art had one on a long-term loan, and taught himself to play several songs -- one song was from a favorite band of mine, Tribe Called Quest - so I got to hear one of my favorite songs over & over while he was learning it.

(on a different note!!) Yes, we have the book Everybody Poops (very dangerous topic for a food blog!!! LOL!!!! peeeUUUUUUUU!) along with Dora's Potty book, and Once Upon a Potty. With 2 little ones & a dog, we are up to here (raising hand above head) in shite. I won't name names, but there are a couple in the house that think farts are funny. :o)

Vicki, Ray is still in school at Arizona State U. He is in the Music Education program with a "Strings" concentration and he has sooo many classes. He has just a year left (total of 6, ugh), and he probably wants his own studio or teaching studio since we both thing the public school system is crap (and we don't have children). Ray freelances around the Phoenix area and is in a few groups that are "steady" but I wouldn't call them a band. He plays mostly upright but he plays some gigs on the weekend with his electric too. He also has about 8 students at a music store, has 2 church gigs (long story why) and a few random gigs.

I just learned "Come as you Are", Nirvana since Ray was telling me he taught someone that. I learned on the upright (since there's 2 at the house including a french horn, trumpet, oboe, bassoon, 2 electric basses, classical guitar, and probably more that I'm forgetting, not including amps and speakers, etc... and I have a mandolin, harmonica and a few recorders). Whew. Ray has some loaners from the University, so don't lose your head from reading that! He also takes piano at school (which he's bad at, shhhhh).

I just learned to play "Shakedown Street", one of my favorite Grateful Dead songs on the upright bass. I like having music around the house, most of it is Jazz for his own liking, or some classical (ei, Handel) for his lessons.

Yeah! Wish I could have been there! Looks like some dandy FUN!!! and there's nothing like music in the house! I grew up with music, my dad plays the fiddle, banjo, drums, and piano, well, he used to! He's 80 now but he's trying to get his old fiddle restrung! Watched American Idol tonight, they all did a pretty good job! better than I could ever do! LOL
