Usually, theres a guitar strap on that shoulder, not a chip.
But the cheerful Brad Paisley country musics least resentful ambassador allowed himself a moment of frustration. Paisley told the crowd jammed into PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel for the opening night of the amphitheatres 2013 season that as country artists, he and his band are often treated as second-class citizens.
Wheres the hay sticking out of your mouth? he said, mimicking his detractors. He then launched straight into Ill-Show-You mode, leading his group of lightning riders through an instrumental that concluded with a Dixified re-creation of Eddie Van Halens solo from Hot for Teacher.

Later, she lured her brother into an ill-defined movie project with her. The director was to be her brother’s boyfriend Michael Urie, a k a “that gay guy from ‘Ugly Betty.’ ”
That — with the possible exception of the first sentence — is not the true story of Halley Feiffer’s life. It’s a reasonably concise summary of about one-fifth of the plot of Halley Feiffer’s indie comedy, in which the actors play exaggerated versions of themselves.
