Hopefully you brought in 2012 with a big bang(both audibly and physically). I always believed the whole point of ripping it up on New Years Eve was to exorcise the demons and bad vibes of the previous year and start the new one with a scorched palate ready for more abuse....that was before I had a kid. Let's just say, since then, my New Years Eve celebrations have been of the PG variety. This past weekend I blasted into the new year by drinking A beer and reading "Prince Caspian" to my daughter in her room with Hello Kitty, her Horsey Pillow Pet, and assorted Barbies. Yeah that's right, I started 2012 surrounded by babes and animals. Pretty crazy right?
I unfortunately didn't get the invite to Russian billionaire Roman Abromovich's St. Barts, Caligula-like extravaganza. It must have been lost in the mail. The USPS is having a rough time these days. I would've liked to hang out with George Lucas, Rupert Murdoch, Russell Simmons, while being entertained by The Red Hot Chili Peppers but I was busy rocking the C.S. Lewis with my 7 year old in Worcester. You can check out pictures of the affair here. I think I had the better time.(I keep telling myself that)
I would've liked to have been at the Mala Restaurant in Maui though. That's where the forces of the Universe conspired to have 3 of the Wizards Of Weirdness convene to entertain a lucky few. Steven Tyler, fellow ragged veteran Alice Cooper, and a man who has parodied both, "Weird" Al Yankovic, played the apropo "Come Together" at the small oceanside Tavern. There is video evidence of this below. I sincerely hope that all three were inspired to collaborate on a new "Supergroup". It would make the Lou Reed/Metallica partnership look like the Today Show. It would be so orgasmically weird that Steven Tyler would weep afterwords and Weird Al would find himself pregnant with Cooper's child. If this were to actually happen what would they name themselves? CT&Y? Whole Lotta Hair? Billion Dollar Accordions? Let me know your ideas in the comment section below. Happy Weird Year!
