The Nitty Gritty

But more than all of those I am an entertainer. I carry around a ukulele with me for the same reason a gangster carries a gun; better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Stage or sidewalk, Your Pal Pete shows are just where they happen.
Currently, I'm working on a musical, RagnaPOP(or she's got the bomb), set to premiere at this year's Capital Fringe Festival. I'm also working on music, comedy, and musical comedy; for kids and/or adults.
The fruit of these projects will be available on this site, so check back regularly!

Truth is funnier than parody:Part 2

Just this weekend I learned about the Hydropolis Underwater Hotel being built in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. It's going to be the world's first underwater hotel, 20 meters below the Arabian gulf. Here, in what we used to think of as the future, we may not have flying cars or condos on the Moon, but we can live UNDER THE SEA!

Dubai is how the Arab world does their own version of Las Vegas, without the inherent sin except for the deadly one, pride, linking the two cities. As anyone who has ever hovered over Dubai on Google Earth knows, these nuevo really riche are in it to win it, but this still seems about about a Charlton Heston appearance away from a total disaster("I warned those damned the Dubinians, this hotel is DOOMED!") .

Oh, I almost forgot the best part, the hotel itself will be the one of the most blatantly phallic structures ever.

Wow, you are not kidding. that's a strong competitor for most phallic building in the world (title currently held by Ypsilanti, Michigan's watertower, otherwise known as "the brickdick")!
