Donnies Jokes

Feb 22, 2012

Donny’s Jokes – February / March 2012

20090708204039853

President’s Day

Amy Knows Dave and Christine were eating breakfast with their daughter Amy over the weekend when Christine asked, “Amy, what holiday is on the 20th of February?”Amy replied “It’s Presidents Day Mommy!” “She’s such a smart kid” boasted Dave who then asked  “And what does President’s Day mean honey?”Waiting for something about Washington or Lincoln or something like that Amy instead replied “President’s Day is when Obama steps out of the White House, and if he sees his shadow, we’ll have one more year of unemployment!”

Little Julian vs Mr. Paul

Little Julian walks onto his school bus and sits right behind the bus driver Mr. Paul and starts yelling, “If my dad was a bull and my mom was a cow I’d be a little bull. ” Mr. Paul starts getting irritated at the noisy kid, who continues with, “If my mommy and daddy were elephants then I would be an elephant too! ” The kid goes on and on with several animals until the bus driver gets angry and yells, “Hey Julian, what if your dad was gay and your mom was a prostitute?!” Julian smiles and says, “That’s easy Mr. Paul … I’d be a bus driver! ”

Kelsey’s Bike

Dave came home from a long business trip to find his daughter Kelsey riding a very fancy new 10 speed bike. “Where did you get the money for the bike Kelsey … It must have cost $300? ” “Easy, Dad,” the little girl replied. “I earned it hiking. ” “Come on,” said Dave “Tell me the truth. ” “That is the truth,” Kelsey replied. “Every night you were gone, Mr. Kenny from the campground would come over to see Mom. Then he’d give me a $20 bill and tell me to take a hike! ”

Matt’s Cookies

A very old man named Matt lay dying in his bed. Suddenly he smelled the aroma of his favorite chocolate chip cookie wafting up the stairs.He gathered his remaining strength, lifted himself from the bed, and slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and down the stairs. With labored breath, he leaned against the door frame gazing into the kitchen.There, spread out on the kitchen table were literally hundreds of his favorite chocolate chip cookies. Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of love from his devoted girlfriend Lisa D who wanted to see to it that he left this world a happy man?  Mustering every effort he could, he threw himself towards the table and fell to the floor. Matt’s shaky, aged, and withered hand made its way to a cookie at the edge of the table, when suddenly he was smacked with a spatula by his girlfriend Lisa.  “Stay out of those Matthew,” she said. “They’re for the funeral!”

Granny Greeko

Trish the hooker was hanging out with all of her hooker friends along Cottman ave. when suddenly Steve the cop pulled up and said “Hey little girl … You and all of your friends line up for questioning!” Out of nowhere Trish’s grandma, Granny Greeko, came walking by and said “Why are all of you girls lined up here?” Trish didn’t want her grandma to know what she did for a living so she said “We’re lined up here to buy oranges grandma.” The police talked to every girl individually, and when they got to Granny Greeko the cop said “How do you do it, you’re so old?!? “Granny Greeko replied – “It’s easy … You just peel it down, and you suck it dry! ”

Thirsty Norm

Steve the cop pulls Norm over for weaving across two lanes of traffic. He walks up to the drivers window and asks, “You drinking? “Norm replied, “You buying? ”

Finally …March 3rd gang … Saturday March 3rd is the Shamrock Shuttle in Mayfair and it’s gearing up to be one of the best ones yet! The bar owners and neighborhood organizers have worked really well together to ensure a great day for all. The buses start rolling in around noon and will run until … who knows! Traditionally the weather has been absolutely beautiful on Shuttles past and I’m sure the luck of the Irish will continue. Please be respectful of the neighborhood so that these events and others like it will continue to run through Mayfair for many many years to come. Thanks guys!

Speaking of Mayfair … PROPS to Gary of Reale’s for bringing in some really good bands to play for their Friday Happy Hours! A few weeks ago I caught Joe Coyne of Evryman Jack playing and last week was Stems and Seeds. Thanks Gary – Keep em commin!The weather’s finally breaking and before you know it May will be here and teh concerts in teh park will be in full swing. The crew of the Pennypack Music Festival have been working their asses off to try to bring you some of the best concerts ever.

Stems and Seeds

Feb 22, 2012

tnStems and Seeds originally started out back in 2007 with a unique idea of mixing electric and acoustic instruments to give them a different sound than most bands.  Today, they are totally re-vamped with a very guitar-driven sound and exceptional male and female vocals.  We spoke to their percussionist, Krista Doran who said, “What we started out doing was fun, but the band just naturally evolved and now sounds better than ever.”  Out of the 5 members in the band, there are 4 that sing lead, which really brings a cool diversity to the band.  Each singer has their own style, making them able to perform all different types of music. They tend to stay away from playing the same songs you hear many other bands play and Krista told us, “It’s not that we don’t think these songs are good songs to perform. It’s just that there is so much music out there and we want to give people something else to listen to.  We put a lot of thought into our song choices.” Stems and Seeds plays a combination of Classic and Modern Rock, Funk, Blues and Motown.  One of the things the band is known for is taking an older song, and re-working it to give it a more modern sound.  They have taken songs like “Moondance”, “Brandy”, “Dancing in the Moonlight,” or “Tell Me Something Good” among many others, and have made them more danceable and rocking!  “It makes covering a song a bit more challenging,” Krista explained.  “Of course, there are some songs that need to be played exactly as you would hear on a CD, and on some we do.  But, we also like to have fun with the song choices we make, without changing them too much.  So far, it has really worked out to our advantage.”  We couldn’t agree more and the proof is in the many people that go to see them each and every show!  If you go see Stems and Seeds, expect to not only hear great music.  You are going to have A LOT of fun, too.  Their onstage antics and overall fun-loving attitude is contagious.  You can’t help but have a good time when you see them up there laughing with each other and including the crowd. Krista told us, “We definitely love what we do.  We all get along so well, that it’s just naturally fun for us.  When people see that, they can tell its real and not forced, so they tend to just become part of it.  And this is why we do it.  It’s not about us. It’s about music, fun and friends.  Life is hard and times are tough.  If we can give people a few hours away from the everyday BS, then we did our job.”  This band just seems to have a way about them that will draw you in and make you feel welcome, no matter who you are.  Each member is very personable and takes the time to talk to everyone and thank them for being part of things.  Krista explained, “We just love to make people feel good.  If we see someone singing along, me or Rick will run up to them with the mic or have them up onstage with us.  If it’s someone’s birthday, we make a big deal about it and have the whole room sing to them.  If someone is not having a good day, we take the time to let them know they are appreciated.  It’s all about fun and just taking a moment to share a common love of music with people.”  You can see Stems and Seeds playing at many great venues including every First Friday at Flukes Restaurant & Pub in NE Philly and every Last Friday at The Temperance House in Newtown.  They also play regularly at some of the OOT’s favorite spots like Curran’s Irish Inn in Bensalem, Redz Bar & Grill and Sweeney’s Saloon in NE Philly and in Levittown, The SkyBox, McStews and The Roadhouse.   They also play many benefits & charity events.  They do a great job with private parties too.  If you are having a birthday, anniversary or block party coming up sometime soon, Stems and Seeds is the band you want to have there!  To see their schedule, just go to their websitewww.stemsandseeds.com. Be sure to join their Facebook page at facebook.com/stemsandseedsband to get more info on the band and on what they are up to next. You can also see their whole schedule onwww.bar411.com.  The members of the band are, Rick Doran – Lead & backing vocals, Bryan Allen – Lead guitar & backing vocals, Vincent Rocky – Bass guitar, lead & backing vocals, Ricky Solitro – Drums, lead & backing vocals and Krista Doran – Percussion, lead & backing vocals.  Go check them out and when you do, be sure to mention you saw them in the Out on The Town!
