I've known for a long time that musicians used beta blockers--since my son told me when he was in high school, to be precise. This drug category is normally used to treat high blood pressure and helps the player or singer remain calm in stressful situations. I could use some of them myself, though I'm sure my son would not approve.
Things come and go on this blog a lot lately because I have been feeling very bitchy and am trying to hide it. Unsuccessfully. I added a category for jokes, but for that you will have to see La Cieca who is the master of opera jokes.
Diva on a Plane comes from a movie called The Driver's Seat. I see that Andy Warhol is listed in the cast.
I am feeling right now an unaccustomed attack of humility.
