Blah Blah Blah: Stories About Clams, Swamp Monsters, Pirates and DogsSpring 2006 Storytelling
As a rule, the expression “Blah, Blah, Blah,” is a big red flag that the speaker is droning on and the listener is tuning out.
The first signal that this CD puts a new spin on things is the title. Of his latest collection Harley says: “If this recording [Blah Blah Blah] were a book, it would be a comic book—the characters are bigger than life, and there’s some fantasy in every story told.” In these stories, Harley conjures up worlds of Pirates, Giant Clams, Dogs and Dirty Sneakers. The stories are funny; sometimes they’re hands-on-face with fingers spread, spooky-scary-story frightening. His characters come straight from the memories of your fourth grade class and his spot-on delivery is confirmation that Bill Harley really and truly honest to goodness cross your heart knows what makes kids laugh.
