That’s been some chatter* about our imminent BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, slated for Wed. Nov. 28th, and while being tight-lipped certainly adds an air of secrecy, mystique, and intrigue to the proceedings, we also don’t like being called “Nixonian.”**
So we’ll do a little Q&A to shed some light – not enough light, mind you; just a tantalizing sliver of creamy, buttery light – about what you can expect in a few days.
Q: So what’s the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT?
A: Great question! The BIG ANNOUNCEMENT is t— oh, wait…HEY! No, wait till Wednesday to find out. Nice try….
Q: Is it a big rock concert?
A: No. Can’t have big rock concerts in the winter because of wind and rain. Too much liability. (Looks over and sees the bespectacled HML lawyer nodding solemnly.)
Q: So no, like, secret Van Morrison or Annie Lennox show or whatever?
A: Dude, c’mon…
Q: Does the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT have to do with the creative arts?
Q: Does it involve, say, Oscar-winner(s)?
Q: Does it involve Magnus singing the “South Coast Ballad?”
A: Yes. In fact, when bequeathing the HML to the Big Sur Land Trust (the “Articles of Bequeathment), Emil White, in Section X, Article III (“Demands”), demanded that, and I quote, “The ‘South Coast Ballad’ must be sung as often as possible…particularly when Mike or Keely do something wrong.”
Q: Does the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT involve the the new Twilight movie, good food, the Tea Party, Oprah Winfrey’s flailing cable network, ponchos, or quantum physics?
A: No, yes, no, no, maybe, and maybe!
And that’s all you get. Stay tuned for the big announcement on Wednesday!
