Dancin’ in the Streets

Have you seen this man? I know I posted about this earlier but due to recent developments and having seen him just about everywhere, I decided to write another post about him (and hopefully ladies, we’ll get some stats about him as soon as he gets back to me). His name is Emery Carl so I can stop calling him the Pike Place Guitar Man. I actually saw him as I was leaving the Decemberists show on Friday night at the Showbox. He did this amazing thing where he balanced the guitar on his chin, danced in a circle and all the while telling jokes. I was amazed. I just stood there for the longest time. It was really great. If you see this man, give him a huge thumbs up and a high-five from me, Beth…oh, and if you can spare it, put a donation in his boot. Those cute little bells on his boots aren’t cheap ya know! More information about Emery and his act can be found, HERE!

    He’s been all over the place lately, in real life and on the web! I got a comment from him recently on my photo: http://shinyredtype.typepad.com/photo/2004/08/payperview.html

    Talent, man. I can’t help but give him a few bucks when I see him.

    He was one of the finalists at The Stranger’s Pizzazz! amateur talent show last summer at Bumbershoot…He’s all of that, and a really nice guy too…a rarity.
