Happy April, everyone! On today’s date in 1987 the band played at Espace Foire in Lilles, France.
Could there really be a less exciting note for April Fools? Probably not….at least for me, since there really isn’t one single thing that I can draw upon from that date in history note to comment.
I did think about announcing that the band has set a release date for the new album – February 29, 2015. But then I thought that might actually encourage them. Can’t have that.
Then I thought about announcing my retirement. But…that seems overdone, and quite frankly I can’t have all of you applauding like that. It’s not necessary.
I considered posting photoshopped pictures of the band, but then Simon took my idea and actually shaved his beard off. Damn.
I thought about temporarily converting the blog to be a worship site for another celebrity – but then I remembered that A. I don’t have time for all that; and B. I couldn’t come up with a good celebrity to follow that I could actually tolerate.
What’s really bad is that Amanda and I discussed plans for this several times over the year, and I think it’s fair to say that neither one of us thought to actually write anything down. So now, on “crunch day”, I can’t remember a single thing we’d discussed. Let’s all give a slow clap to my fading memory. It’s OK…I won’t even remember it in a minute.
So until next April Fools…you get a free pass from Daily Duranie. But I can’t guarantee that next year you won’t find an entire album of “Fool” photos of the band, or a fake tour schedule…or even a fake set list written on a napkin. (Oh wait. We did that already. Damn!)
