Sunny Days:
Meet Abby Cadabby!

Look, here at (i'm just sayin'), it's not always going to be about monster rock bands, occasionally it's just gonna be about monsters... or in this case fairies. Meet "Abby Cadabby." She is a self described "fairy in training" and the newest muppet, errrrrr, member to move in to the neighborhood of "Sesame Street."

"Sesame Street" begins it's 37th season August 14th and introduces the newest character (the first new female Muppet to join the program in over 13 years) to the show with an "emphasis-on social and emotional growth rather than "ABCs and 123s." Pre-school children and unemployed stoners who watch the program will follow Abby as she meets everyone on Sesame Street, and tag along as she goes to school for the first time with her new friend Baby Bear.

Abby, whose catchphrase is "that's so magic," carries a "magic wand" and uses rhyme and magic to express herself. She's a youngster who knows just enough about magic to get herself in a jam but not always enough to get out of trouble.

Subsitute the word magic for dope from that passage, and ironically, the same could be said about Snoop Dogg. I'm just sayin'.

Guest appearances this season include John Legend, Jamie Foxx, Amy Sedaris, Matt Lauer, and Shirley Jones who will play Mother Goose. As always, there will be plenty of parodies of current television shows. This season we will see Law & Order: Special Letters Unit M, and Survivor: Musical Chairs.

37 years. Are we that old? Sunny days indeed. Here's something for you to trip on, for your consideration, my favorite song ever from the show "Mahna Mahna," the original version and a version recorded by Cake. Cake's a band that I really enjoy and is releasing a concert cd called
"Live From The Crystal Palace" very soon. Enjoy!
