Family Home Evening with Dave Letterman

So today right after Chateau and I saw the arrest, we ran into this guy who was giving away tickets to tonight's taping of the David Letterman show. (Talk about being at the right place at the right time.) Featured this evening was film legend Robert Duvall, Irish comedian Tony Tiernan, and alt-rock pioneers Sonic Youth. The show was a lot of fun. Chateau and Mr. Letterman had a public conversation about Brazil and politics right before it began. It was awesome. After the taping we went to the back entrance to see Sonic Youth leave. I got to shake bassist Kim Gordon's hand. I remember many years ago seeing a photograph of her playing at some Tibetan Freedom Festival. She had on an ugly skirt and a bass guitar which clashed perfectly in both color and style. I remember that image having a big impact on me as a youth. It was so effortlessly gutsy. Well, tonight I'm starstruck. The show airs Friday night. Look for us in the audience.
