somewhere amidst the celebration of everything melvern taylor last night, two guys who i happen to know from completely different circumstances happened to get into a conversation. you know how it goes... "the first time i saw melvern taylor it was..." and, well, it was a long time ago, and it was in a particular social club on the other side of this city, where the party of the first part, recalling his one and only trip (prior to last night) to the fair city of lowell to see the genius who is melvern taylor, described the second most notable character in the place, who spent the ENTIRE evening exclaiming in expositional bliss, "MELVERN FUCKING TAYLOR!!!"
to which the party of the second part simply and proudly and joyfully added...
"that was ME!!!"
only in beautiful downtown shangri-lowell!
it just doesn't get any more beautifully succinct than that.
