So, as I told my kids about this fascinating dream, before their eyes could completely glaze over (because, don't you hate when people tell you their dreams in tedious detail?), we talked about which singer, band or musical artist we would like to meet in real life.
Mary said she would love to meet the band members from Muse. The bass player has a guitar called a Katara that I believe she wants to get her hands on. You can see it in the video linked here. It is like a guitar and ipad together. Interesting! Muse will be stopping in Tulsa in March and Mary has asked to go to their concert. Unfortunately, that dream won't be coming true because the concert is on a Sunday night at the beginning of finals week. Boo! Whose idea was it to perform a weeknight concert? Adding insult to injury, the radio has been promoting Muse as the 'best live act in the world'. In the world! What do they do? Juggle fire? It makes me wonder. Anyway, I think Mary is interesting. She loves to play the guitar and is also learning to play the mandolin. She has pretty varied musical tastes. I have heard her finger pick beautiful tunes and strum chords in her youth group church choir. I know she enjoys alternative/indie/blue-grass music, but I had no idea she had an undisclosed desire to play digital dub-step. Get it? Undisclosed Desire? Muse? Okay, I'll stop.
Maggie had a hard time choosing and in the end said she would rather meet a professional dancer and take lessons from them than meet a musician. She also would love to meet the girls from Dance Moms. I know, I know...that show is messed up. The crazy studio owner, the attention seeking moms, the over dramatic pauses and close ups. Yuck. But, those little girls are sweet and amazingly talented. Maggie follows a couple of the girls on Instagram and studies youtube videos of their dances. She has taught herself a few of their moves. She really likes this dance and tries to emulate the turns these girls do. It is fun to see her so focused and driven.
I wasn't able to get Stephen to pin down a band yet. He has been pretty busy going to school and working. I'll get his pick later. Maybe, if he'll play along...
