All because of you, friend.

No, we haven't been killed by an angry god. But apparently Lisa's desire to inform us about her latest misadventures has. And it seems she has no other "reports" from any of her children's "classes" to distract us with. Which is fine. Our good friend Ian has come to the rescue. How?

Here's how:

Yes, we now possess our very own copy of Lisa's 1984 GRAMMY-nominated inspirational record, All Because of You. (And, yes, we hope you enjoy our expert photography skills. We wanted to make it look like one of those Al Qaeda snuff films!) We kind of feel like our Lisa Whelchel collection of one item is now complete. And, you want to know the best part?

Well, do you?


We don't own a record player!

Hallelujah, amen and glory be to god! If that's not a blessing, what is?

Yeah, we don't really have much more to say about this. Thank you, Ian, for the record, and thank you, readers, for your patience with Lisa's unconscionable negligence. As soon as she decides to put scraggly finger to keyboard, so shall we.

We actually took a look at the liner notes last night (how stoopid of us not to have done that immediately), and here's what we remember:

1.) Lisa wrote one-half of one of the ten songs on the LP.
2.) Justice is thanked. As in CaseyJustice. Not actual justice. Clearly.

Hey there, cupcake! I'm in the same predicament. I' have the LP but no way to play it. But wait, there's more! You know, she has alllllll the tracks from that record on her site. Ohhhhhh, it's a TREAT to listen to. Kind of like listening to Joann Whorley having a hysterectomy without anesthesia. Good times. Gooooood times.

My record player (26 years and counting) used to belong to Satan so the record probably wouldn't play anyway.

I've been waiting and checking patiently for days but still no column from her. I've come to look forward to your weekly critique so you can imagine how bloody happy I was about that.

Thank goodness there are still wonderful people in the world who hoard crappy old LPs. Where would we be without you?

omg... yeah "All Because of You" hahaha the songs are totally ridiculous... well one song "Good Girl" is sickeningly catchy "be a good girl why be a good girl?..." hahahaha i could just see some artist doing a revamp of the song, someone like hilary duff or lindsay lohan...haha
and just in case you want to listen to the tracks, someone put them online (sheesh)

listen, and laugh at the expense of Lisa
