Not Your Average Dream Blog

I was in New York City. I was watching a beautiful young man explain that “bucket drummers are particularly impressive because no one trains them” so very kindly to an elderly woman.

Suddenly I was in my chair at work seeing his face on my screen. “Hannibal Buress Live at The Historic El Rey Theater this Tuesday night!” the page said.

I became hot as I ferociously typed away buying tickets. Click. Click-click. Tap-tap-tap-tap. Click. CLICK.

Then I realized it wasn't a dream, but a dream come true. The brilliant comedian Hannibal Buress will be in Albuquerque Tuesday, April 26, at 7:30pm for those of us lucky sinners that are over 21.

Mr. Buress will also be in Santa Fe to perform at Skylight at 8pm, so those lucky bastards in Santa Fe get to be closer to him but it's not like it really matters because we all have the chance to absorb some of his near-perfect comedic genius.
