  1. Well you didn't wake up this morning 'cause you didn't go to bed You were watching the whites of your eyes turn red The calendar on your wall was ticking the days off You've been reading some old letters You smile and think how much you've changed All the money in the world couldn't buy back those days
  2. I traded for Ellis Burks sending Al Leiter, Beau Allred and a minor leaguer to Boston. He's an upgrade at CF over the platoon of Allred and Darrin Jackson. I was getting tired of Leiter and was considering releasing him anyway. The sim's trade AI really doesn't like high salary players, including ones that the CPU teams just added to long-term contracts. I've picked up quite a bit of salary in the trade but I'm not paying beyond Burks' age 30 season. He solidifies my everyday lineup along with Dwight Smith and Mark Whiten in the OF, Matt Williams at 3B and Manny Lee at SS. Brosius is getting the lion's share of starts at 2B. I'm running platoons at 1B with Vander Wal and Russ Morman and at C with Joe Oliver and Darrin Fletcher. Mile High makes hitters look better than they are but I think it's a better lineup than the one that started the season.
  3. People shoot through your life like asteroids. Sometimes they crash and burn. The object of the came is to keep them from colliding with you.
  4. My eighth grade cherchez la femme story took place at a cast party after a junior high school theater production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. I was on a couch in the basement necking with Sue Harris, who had played one of the dwarfs, when Christine Kesecki, who had a crush on me, dumped a can of soda on my head. I don't remember what music was playing but it was cream soda.
  5. Yep. Referential rock is very much his forte. I'm so old when you say Finn, I think of Split Enz.
  6. That's not the way your fifties work at all. It's basically slow decline and AARP junk mail.
  7. "Play me a song, Mr. Wolfman Jack, Play it for me in my long Cadillac" is a crucial part in the lyrics since it's the pivot from the JFK story to the musical references that go on for the next seven minutes.
  8. Ooooooohhh...Friday I'm on the TLC Tip. It's an oddball shirt because I never saw them live. My daughter gave it to me for Christmas a couple of years ago. Anybody who's seen my Spotify profile picture knows I TLC. I love the shirt and the thought behind it but it's not one I wear outside the house often. Bruno Mars wore this style of shirt in the video for "Finesse" but I look much older and more awkward in it.
  9. Well, I don't know about all that. I probably whined about Dylan's long songs somewhere in the thread. Murder Most Foul is better than most of them. The random musical shoutouts make his repetition seem less repetitious as the tale meanders along. And whoever is playing piano deserves an assist.
  10. I was a big little fan of Mister Moose's mayhem. The 50s was the golden age of Lumpys with Lumpys Brannum and Rutherford.
  11. The I-Beam was a great place to dance and hang out but it wasn't so good for live music. The stage was low since it normally served as a dance platform for extroverts. The sound bounced off the wall with the video screens and went up to the high ceiling to get lost. Still miss it though.
  12. I messed that up right out of the gate with a Captain Kangaroo record that came out eight years earlier.
