I have a rental car this week (long story) that has a digital audio port. So, I connected my new BlackBerry to the port and played the tunes I had loaded on it. As LuPone was belting out “As Long as He Needs Me” from the out-of-print “Hey, Mr. Producer!” album, the phone shut itself off right at the moment she hit her money note. It wouldn’t turn on again until I took the battery out and put it back in. And even then, it took a good five minutes for it to get up and functioning again.
I wonder if my warrenty covers damage due to belting?
And this is my last LuPone blog post for a while. Even I’m getting annoyed with myself.
