Duet


Is there anything more beautiful than a mother and daughter playing music together? Sight and sound, emotion and thrill, passion and history, warmth and love. It's very deep music, with far more to it than what we can hear. It made for a beautiful afternoon, and one day I look forward to a duet with my son. I'll hum into a comb and waxed paper, and he can bang on a coffee can. Sure, a little different than two talented pianists, but we'll have pizza afterward, which will almost make up for the lack of musical chops. I just got back from Detroit and a weekend of fun shows. The highlight of the trip was a wonderful time with an old friend, walking together and having a cheeseburger for lunch, which almost made up for the lack of musical chops.

Tom, what a great post. I'm glad to discover this blog. Next time you play Atlanta (when would that be, BTW?), hopefully the two of us and our sons can form an impromptu jug band. All the best to you!

Hey Tom! I'm happy to have discovered your Blog! I did so b/c I read that you might be coming to my town to film a movie (which is called The Informant, I believe) - This is Decatur, Illinois!!! Everyone is excited about "Matt Damon," but I say, "Matt Damon WHO?" I want to meet Tom Wilson!!! Of course I first loved you in B2TF (still my favorite - I beleive I was 5 when it came out, and I would pretend to drive the Delorean up to 88 mph - actually, you know, we have one here in town...it looks like crap, but it's in one piece at this guys little shop/dealership...) Anyway, I also have loved your voice-over work on Spongebob Squarepants!!! (and a couple of other toons that I've been lucky to catch with you in them)
Basically, if you are coming to film here, I would love to just shake your hand and maybe get a picture with you; tell you in person how much I've enjoyed your work...
If this is possible, post back and I will check back later (and hope-excitedly for a reply!).

Wishing you the BEST,
-Edward Twohill - Decatur, IL.
