Hey Jerrie! 91-Year-Old Gal Still Rockin' with an Oxygen Tank

You know I love the quirky kitsch side of life and I'm so glad this video has fallen into my in-box. Called "Hey Jerrie," it's a tribute to the 91-year-old female drummer (on an oxygen tank) Jerrie Thill and the latest by Grammy, Emmy, Tony and Webbie award winning and nominated composer, artist, animator, director, pop culture freak, technologist, party thrower Allee Willis. Allee's also the original queen of kitsch... love her!

Check out the "Hey Jerrie" video below and I guarantee you'll be bebopping with Allee and Jerrie in no time.
