Lotus Has Pipes, Peeps!

Not since Michigan J. Frog has there been a performance as stirring as this up and coming star’s latest concert. Lotus started the show with some classics; our favorite was a very bluesy and soulful rendition of “I Fall to Pieces”. The act ended with the more recent “Firework” and blew this audience away. Even with a 4 minute standing ovation, Lotus would not grace us with another song.

Much like Frog, her concerts are done for an audience of one. When another person comes into the room, it’s crickets. For some reason, her voice doesn’t record, no matter the machine or program. But, you can believe us, Lotus sings. Really. We’re totally not crazy. We always refer to ourselves in plural.

Update 4/24/12: And because you asked for it, Mouf-hance!

Sure, Cam, we believe you.

    Or “The Marriage of Pigaro”? Or “Pigliacci”? Or “Pigmalion”? OK, enough already.

  17. Or something by Ottorino Respiggy? (Unfortunately, there’s no vocal part in “The Swines of Rome.”)

  18. Porky and Bass?

  19. Fird Birfle says:

  21. Hey, Theresa, do you remember the old Saturday Night Live skit?

    “B-B-B-Bess, you is m-m-my w-w-w-woman . . . . “

  22. Garrett Morris! I loved Garrett Morris!

  23. Other great Garrett moments:
    “Béisbol been berry good to me!”
    “Looord and Laaady D*******chebag!”

    and my favorite:

  24. Boy, is this bringing back memories. The times my friends and I went around yelling, “OUR TOP STORY TONIGHT . . . . ” (Not to mention “wild and crazy guys” and “Jane, you ignorant slut.”

  25. Or “Pigoletto”?

  26. On Lotus’ next performance:

    Well since Lotus is a ‘she’ AND named after a flower – this seems appropriate:

    I think she’s singing songs from the Broadway play: Peegmalion. Known to us humans as: My Fair Lady

    She really wails on: “I could have Reee’d All Night”

  52. I was actually hoping Lotus would sing some Adele…

  53. People, you ain’t seen opera until you’ve seen this!

  59. Well, since I was in college, I was a tot. You know, seven or eight years old. :P

  60. Back off, Theresa, Schickele is mine all mine!

    I saw him live in ’79 or ’80. It remains to this day the hardest I’ve ever laughed in my life.

  61. Did he come to your school, dressed as Saint Cecilia, with a long white robe, long golden wig and halo? :D

  62. Fird Birfle says:

    “Cecelia, you’re breakin’ ma heart,
    you’re shakin’ ma confidence, daily ….” :)

  63. pinkmariposa says:

  66. Yay! Thank you for the Mouf-hance!

  67. Kariann65 says:

  68. Love the little teefers

  69. Fird Birfle says:

    Me too

  70. Southern Fried Pugs says:

    Okay, this is the third singing frog reference in a week for me. What is the universe trying to tell me? Of course, one reference was me when the library dug up its time capsule. A reporter asked why I wanted to be there when the time capsule was opened. I replied, “to see the singing frog come out of the box.” My interview didn’t make the broadcast.

  71. Fird Birfle says:

    “to get to the other side!!!”

  72. Fird Birfle says:

    TEEF-HANCE !!!

  73. Yay for the Mouf-hance!

  74. Hi everyone, my name is Jen and I was Lotus’s owner. I say “was” because shortly after I got her, she developed some medical problems we fought very, very hard to overcome, but she passed away one week ago today. If you go to the Facebook page for Oswego County Guinea Pig Rescue, you can see what a huge following she had. I still can’t believe she’s gone..I miss her singing and I’m glad she blessed us with her presence for two short months. Thank you all for your comments about her picture.
