It Rocks Because It's There

While it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, remember that we all need to do our part to help rid the world of cancer in all of its ugly forms.

One organization hoping to rock cancer into submission is Love Hope Strength Foundation. The foundation was created by The Alarm frontman, Mike Peters, and President of CSI Entertainment, James Chippendale, both leukemia survivors. LHSF helps support cancer research on a global scale through concerts and climbs.

LHSF's latest event, Everest Rocks, is underway now. Full description from the LHSF website:

This October will be our most momentous climb and concert benefiting The Nepal Cancer Relief Society (NCRS). Cancer survivors and co founders of the Love Hope Strength Foundation (LHSF) Mike Peters and James Chippendale will lead 40 musicians, cancer survivors and mountaineers to Base Camp to perform an acoustic concert to help the Bhaktapur Cancer Hospital build the infrastructure of its clinic, NCRS, by providing them with much needed equipment and funding. In a country where the Avg. annual income is $300 a year our donation and support is going a long way to save lives NOW.

“Everest Rocks” is a fourteen day trek and acoustic concert at the base camp of Mt Everest, with a grand finale rock concert in Kathmandu. The entire journey will be captured by a documentary team headed by Alex Coletti (the acclaimed producer of MTV’s ‘Unplugged’ series). The taping will include the training, kickoff events, trek and base camp acoustic set.

Other musicians joining Peters to rock the mount are Nick Harper, Slim Jim Phantom of The Stray Cats, Cy Curnin and Jamie West-Oram of The Fixx and one Mr. Glenn Tilbrook, whom you may know as the frontman of Squeeze or the frequent target of my lustful obsessions.

I tell ya, some days I don't even feel like climbing the one flight of stairs to my apartment, but I'm about ready to start training for Vesuvius Rocks, or wherever the next event is. I'll get back into shape again if my reward is getting to spend some QT with GT! Oh, and I want to help make the world a better place, yadda yadda.

Since Glenn is so committed to the fight against cancer, I wonder if he would have time to feel my boobies when he comes down from that mountain?

Glenn seems like such a committed guy, I'm sure he'd be happy to give your boobies a therapeutic squeeze. It's for a good cause, after all.

Sounds like a blast.

OT: did you hear about (or better yet have the video) Annie Lennox running off stage when a guy in a cape & a gas mask scared her? It happened at a concert in Boulder, Colorado.

I'm sure if you flash him and ask him real nice, he'll oblige. He seems like that kind of guy.

Hey! You like me, you put me on your blog roll! (grin)

You know, I wonder how many lumps have been detected during a boyfriend/lover/husband/partner-administered exam. I would think the examiner might get distracted by the boobiliciousness of the examinee, but they probably know the boobs in question just as well, if not better, than the one who's carrying them around.

Celebrities working for good and charitable causes? What is the world coming to?

Aren't there supposed to be actual celebrities in celebrity groups? It's sad when "the old guitarist from Nickelback" would be the star of this show.

Beth said...

I've been getting more Glenn Tilbrook Google hits than normal; this must be why.

Beth said...

I saw on Bluez' blog that your mom died of breast cancer. I'll dedicate one of next Saturday's half miles in her honor.

Barbara - I thought about contacting his manager to ask, but since his manager is also his girlfriend, I don't think I'd get the response I'm looking for.

Cube - Yes, on your blog. :)

Suzel - Yeah, he does. Screw going through his manager! I'll take the direct approach.

Moxie - I've heard that that happens quite a bit. I need to get myself a boyfriend/lover/partner. Not necessarily a husband though.

Pezda - Paris Hilton is going to Rwanda, you know. I think it's safe to say that the world is coming to an end.

Pistols - You're such a celebrity misanthrope. A micelebanthrope? Slim Jim Phantom would push the old guitarist of Nickelback off that mountain.

Beth - Thanks! That's mighty considerate of you.

All that smooshing you did with the pictures and he passed the opportunity to squeeze the boobies then?

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
