Twitter Spotlight: Meg Urbani

It took Bobby Long to make fashion photographer Meg Urbani and me in-person friends. We had already tweeted for a while, but when Bobby’s show at Joe’s Pub was announced, we coordinated and bought tickets.

I feel like I have known Meg a long time because we’ve had lots of fun seeing bands and drinking in bars together. Even now that we’ve been friends for a little while, I remain in awe of her photography. It’s crazy to me that I know someone so talented in that art form.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@MegUrbani: Has a sense of humor, not afraid to be dorky, doesn’t take himself too seriously, a bit of a nerd, oh and great hair and a great smile. Also being British doesn’t hurt. Just saying 🙂

Discovering Bobby Long

I remember when I first heard the Black Keys two or three years ago. The sound was different from other bands I had been listening to. Brothers grabbed my attention, and held it.

Imagine my surprise when I learned via @aestheticsgirl that the Black Keys weren’t some new band on the scene. On the contrary, there were five whole previous studio releases to check out plus live albums, collaborations and other stuff.

Lucky me!

I like to think that somewhere down the line, a new fan of Bobby Long‘s will learn that there’s an album called A Winter Tale that came out in February of 2011. It’s a gem that surely brought him additional fans, but deserved to be a bigger hit in my opinion.

Here’s a live version of one of my favorite tracks, Who Have You Been Loving.

Well played, PicMonkey

PicMonkey, the free photo editing site I use, changed their photo size choices. See below.

Right now, I feel kind of Charlie Sheen-Jesse Williams-Alexandar Skarsgård. Or Mario Lopez-Bobby LongHugh Laurie.

Who am I kidding? The teenager in me wants Robert Pattinson for high quality.

Who would be your low-medium-high quality equivalents?

Musician Bobby Long’s handsome, hidden face

Updated to add: THIS is what a good picture of Bobby looks like. Kudos to the talented @tynie626.

At Bobby Long’s show last night at @joespubnyc, I tried to get at least one good shot in which his face was visible.

I took the challenge seriously.

“Sooner or later, I’ll catch him mid-hair flick…”

“…or he’ll get sick of playing with his hair in his face and use something to pull it back…”

Or not.

I swear, I didn’t see his face unobscured even once during the ninety minute set. Fortunately the music was terrific.

If you want to see Bobby’s face, I recommend sitting stage right. He parts his curtain of hair on the left. O_o
