From the folks what brought you Clowney comes the story of Mike, a guy with a problem. Sure, he likes a glass of wine now and again. And yeah, ok: maybe he’s become a tad fancified of late. But really, that’s the least of it.
See, the late-night crickets are out in force, chirping along beneath bass and keys. And there’s Mike’s pal, down by the fence. He’s a bit concerned, and he’s feeling awful chatty. What’s his name? Oh, I don’t know. How ’bout we just call him: The Good Friend. Enjoy. And watch the skies, -CV

  2. mike is right, don’t chug! swirl and swish, breathe in deeply, and ponder terroir. wine is life.

  3. Hmm, I dunno. I think someone going oenophile on us, and that’s only one letter away from worhipping Yoko Ono. Kind of creepy, especially if you know the backstory. But hey, Cece, your voice is fine as is, no need to filter it. Eb, great first script!
    BTB, the first time I listened to this, I couldn’t figure out why it was overlayed with Alvin & The Chipmunks singing “Betty Davis Eyes.” I spent several minutes trying to figure out the art behind the juxtaposition. But then I figured out I’d somehow turned on my iTunes playlist at the same time.
