McCarty traveled to Shanghai, China for a couple
weeks in October. Austin reported his adventures
on Facebook, and also made available this video he
shot in the Yu Gardens, and the picturesque markets of Shanghai.
McCarty will entertain at the Dec. 6 potluck for
standardized patients at Grand Valley State
University. Mike, who performed at the dinner last
year, has come up with four new song parodies to
sing and strum for his fellow SPs. They include
"Lookin' Good in My Gown" (sung to the
tune "Lookin' Out My Back Door"),
"Leroy Brown, the Baddest SP in Town,"
"Poor, Poor Pitiful Me," and
"Simulate" (sung to "Kokomo").
