What is.... the number of times I have heard about the abundance of fish in the ocean in the last six months? [sound of bells ringing for the correct answer] Okay, Okay, I'll shut up now.

Looking forward to an XM broadcast of a show by my old "school band" tomorrow evening:
America's "Here & Now" Airs Tuesday, 1/16 at 10PM on The '70s - XM 7 America is a band that helped define the Seventies. In 2005, America recorded their 'History’ CD before a live audience at XM as part of our "Then...Again...Live!" music series. In 2006, they came to XM to discuss every song from the album. And in 2007 'Here and Now'is released to the public. XM celebrates this historic release with new music from America and a one-on-one discussion about the album!
It's pretty neat--a live broadcast of their greatest hits album. I'm recording it on my little receiver, but there's no way to get it off the handheld and onto mp3 that I know of. Too bad because I would enjoy keeping this one. Why don't these stations start selling these shows, I wonder? *I* would pay. Anyway. "History" came out in 1975, so my personal favorite America song isn't on the album and won't be played on the show. :-( I did find a Youtube performance of it, although you have to wait through a couple of minutes of introduction before the song begins. Watch for the photo 2:15 into the video-- and check out the London Central jockjacket Dewey (fellow Cheesehead!!) is wearing. I know, I know....it's sort of a wussy song. Sometimes ya just gotta set yer inner wuss free.
ALL MY LIFE All my life, without a doubt I give you All my life, now and forever till the Day I die, you and I will share All the things this changing world can offer So I sing, I'd be happy just to Stay this way, spend each day, with you There was a time, that I just thought That I would lose my mind You came along and then the sun did shine We started on our way I do recall that every moment spent Was wasted time but then I chose to lay it on the line I put the past away I put the past away I put the past away All my life, I will carry you through All my life, between each hour of the passing days I will stay with you There was a time, that I just thought That I would lose my mind You came along and then the sun did shine We started on our way I do recall that every moment spent Was wasted time then I chose to lay it on the line I want this all my life I want this all my life I want this all my life I want this all my life I want this all my life I wanted this all my life

You know when your insurance company completely messes up your claim and denies your payment and infuriates you and you think you'll SCREAM if you can't get through all those phone menus with the "if you would like to talk to a claim representative, please press **4576" and you screw up the numbers the first time and have to start all over from the beginning and you're getting madder and madder by the minute and you think that if you could get ahold of the yahoo who invented telephone menus you would probably kill him and then you have to listen to 18 minutes of muzak on a long-distance call and finally thank you god FINALLY a comforting voice answers the phone?
This is the guy you'll be talking to. Be nice, he's my favorite son-out-law.

Illinois man seeks spinning world record - Yahoo! News
BURR RIDGE, Ill. - George Hood may have pedaled his way into the Guinness World Records book on Saturday night. The 49-year-old Aurora resident began riding a stationary bike at the Five Seasons Sports Club in Burr Ridge at 4 a.m. Wednesday and surpassed the previous record of 82 hours by 8:28 p.m. Saturday. He stopped several minutes before midnight after completing his goal of 85 hours.
And I have trouble riding for more than 40 minutes or so. Then again, I hate stationary bikes almost as much as I hate treadmills. I can NOT wait for spring. My Trek keeps calling my name from the basement.

A pirate Looks at 60
Buffett is one of the music business' singular success stories. He has parlayed an unlikely subject—getting shitfaced while cruising the Gulf Coast in your power boat, basically—into a multimillion-dollar industry, a perennial place on Forbes' list of highest-grossing entertainers, and the most passionate concert audience this side of the Deadheads.
I wish I could figure out how to play songs on here, because I'd love to share one of my favorite Buffett songs. Yep, that one. Fruitcakes. "I want my junior mints!" And yeah, the "Clash" is finished, and turned in. And I think it's awful. Be lucky if I get a "C". [UPDATE: He liked it! :-o With a couple of clarifications of what I wrote, but.....wow. I thought it sucked, actually. I could get to liking this. "You've done it again, presented me with a fabulous essay into which you've put a tremendous amount of research and thought."]

So let's just put on some appropriate music, 'cause I don't think there's going to be any professorial "attagirl" on this one!

I *still* think this is the all-time greatest album cover ever. Composition, subject, energy...this one has it all. The music wasn't too bad, either. :-D (That's for you punk fans in the family.)

Okay, I think I'm done farting around with the templates again. Minor upgrades week!! Made some revisions to the "insides" of this site--purely out of my "can't leave well enough alone" inclinations. Things are up and running again, thankfully, with a cleaner, leaner look--but I still have room for the larger photos that I've always preferred. :-D Still have some playing with the wiki to do. Clean out your minds, this is the explanation of a wiki. And yes, I *am* avoiding "The Clash of Civilizations", as a matter of fact. How did you guess?
