you're givin' me a heart attack

jimbo, Nov. 21, 2004, totally spazzing out on O.N-J merchanise.
First off, either Livvy made a pact with the dark powers, or she's got one hell of a plastic surgeon. But I suppose at 5'6", you'll look like a pixie for a long time. She's frikkin' 56 and had the cutest little butt, and looked NO DIFFERENT than she did in Grease. At least from the 120th row anyway. Or maybe she really is an ageless muse or a godddess?!

I could not say the same for the audience. We were the youngest people there by far, at least by half. Then it occured to me that this was a pops concert, which explained the profusion of septa- through octagenarians there. When I walked into the auditorium, I almost sneezed from all the Shalamar grandmaw perfume in there. It gave new meaning to her performance of 'Heart Attack'. From our vantage point in the back of the concert hall, there was a sea of blue and snowy white hair before us. No one rioted at least.

Olivia hit me with an orgasmic 1-2-3 punch of hits from Xanadu, starting off with the title track, Suddenly, and Magic. Then she went into her country stuff which I was not familiar with, followed by her 80's pop stuff, including an unplugged torch version of Physical, and then a big fun Grease medley. Only one person in the audience was standing up and dancing, you go girl. The rest couldn't get up from their seats. Then she closed with 'I Honestly Love You' and it was her last concert for this tour, right there in Baltimore! ~ sob! ~

OMG/ONJ! You're SO hot to me right now. BEYOND scrummy.

I concur with Jeff. Any incipient blog crush I may have had on you before has been totally been pushed over the edge. i.o.w.: You are SO hot to me right now.

You should really really get her greatest hits Vol 1, which has all the country stuff. And you should also watch Olivia in Concert from HBO in 1983, which I think my parents still have on tape, and which is available on VHS.

I'm so jealous you got to go.

What is ironic is she was in Tucson one of the nights I was staying with you in DC!

I saw ONJ a few years ago at our Performing Arts. Gawd, what an incredible show! And you're right: she looked FANTASTIC for her age!

This post makes you officially, unquestionably -- and delightfully -- gay.

She was on Jane Pauly this morning and said that she hasn't had plastic surgury as of yet. She said she feels that getting rid of the wrinkles takes away the character of a persons face. But she also said "never say never" she might feel differently later on. Oh and yes she looked Fabulous!

I'm so jealous. I've been wanting to see her for years.


Did you get me a t-shirt?
