  1. Happy Mother's Day

    I really like these graphics that you put up on “special days”...Very colorful...They are actually better than James’ poems(don’t tell him or else he’ll start sulking again)...
  2. Apology/Challenge To James

    Welcome to the Twilight Zone reboot...
  3. Apology/Challenge To James

    Uh oh...This is not helping my recovery, Susie, being exposed to this inferior stuff...
  4. Apology/Challenge To James

    I have currently checked into the hospital for psychic evaluation...I have never had a reaction like this...The breath and scope of James’ brilliant latest work(and comeback) has put me into a manic stupor(diachotomy) that I haven’t been able to resume normal life...After I have been evaluated and been cleared for normal activity, I will properly give my impressions of this emotionally draining poem but, til then, VIVA JAMES...Lewisa, you chose correctly...
  5. Apology/Challenge To James

    I feel very badly about this...Ever since I sent James’ last poem to my scholarly friends at Yale, the review was so scathing that it has caused James to assume a fetal position and he has been relegated to the Also-rans dept.of Ec.com posters...Where is the formerly bombastic self appointed King?...His posts are a mere shadow of his capabilities...He has been reduced to “yeahs” and Hollies type punctuations...Has he given up? Has the creative fires burned out? Will he be sending Lewisa back home...? I am, almost, willing to discuss this with my friend at Yale, the esteemed head of the psychology dept., I.M. Nutz, but I’m afraid that any negative evaluation would tailspin and drive James into even more to the depths of despair... What do we do?...I ‘ve got it...A challenge... I will now compose the most banal of poems and hope that it will spur James back into the arena... Without James, Its not the sames, Is Lew to blames, This poem is lames, He no longer gets dames, Gone down in flames, Is he playing games? Is he now tamed? has his interest waned? The end... I’m sure you can do better than this...C’mon, King...Suck it up...Show us you still “got it”... Sincerely, your friend, Lew...
  6. MAY NEWSLETTER

    MAY NEWSLETTER Every 'expert" in money management and debt reduction always swears by the concept of "pay yourself first"...It is for this very reason that Eric Carmen is not only a musical genius but a financial wizard as well...Let me explain... About three weeks ago, Eric needed to have a dentist fill a cavity in a painful tooth...During his pre-treatment consultation, the dentist quoted a price that was a lot higher than Eric expected...When he inquired about the extravagant estimate, Eric was told that the price of gold for the filling was an expensive item... When Eric finally decided to have the tooth taken care of, he chipped away a little piece of his gold record for "Go All The Way" and brought it to the dentist to use as the tooth filling... Now, everytime Eric opens his mouth, he has to pay himself royalties...Quite a unique approach to retirement financing... WHERE ARE THEY NOW!!! Has anyone else noticed how quiet the message board has been lately?...It seems that quite a few of our fellow EC.com members have been missing in action...After some investigating, I discovered that the Olympic tryouts for team USA have intrigued some of our fan base as they have been busy hoping to become members of the United States contingent to both Summer and Winter events... Tommy Tunes was a quarterfinalist in the four man bobsled event when things took a sudden turn for the worst...Tommy was the 4th man in the bobsled when, during a real hairraising turn on the course, the fellow in front of Tunes turned to him and said "Hey buddy, that's not the brake lever you're pulling on...but don't stop"... Wendy decided to enter the pole vault competition, but misread the objective...After extracting her from the leg of Polish vaulter, Stash Rogenski, it was explained to Wendy that she was to "jump" the pole, not "hump" the Pol... MJ heard the directions correctly, but her interpretation of "jump" landed her in prison as Stash pressed charges for assault... James and Hollies are in fierce competition for the final spot on the team in the following sports: 1.) Synchronized blinking 2.) Endurance squatting 3.) Speed walking with a bad rash Freshrasberry failed his tryout for the ice fishing team... The first day, Fresh showed up for the tryouts, he carved a hole in the ice and dropped his line in...Suddenly, he heard a booming voice that said, "There's no fish under there"... The next day Fresh came back to the same spot, dropped his line again and heard the same voice proclaim, "There's no fish under there"... Undaunted, Rob showed up for the third day, and dropped his line...The voice once again bellowed, "There's no fish under there...I should know...I'm the rink attendant" Rockynrobin was dismissed from her badmitton tryout when she proved to be a distraction after repeatedly breaking out in giggles everytime the organizers said "shuttlecock"... Meanwhile, MY tryout ended uncermoniously after a valiant effort...I sprained my ankle during the 3rd heat of the high hurdles...I attempted to continue while in a wheelchair, but my inability to get the vehicle off the ground caused me to keep getting hit in the face with the hurdle crossbar... On a personal note, I'd like to wish Muzza a "Happy Birthday"...I always look forward to Kiwi and Muzza's treks to the U.S., but this years visit may be cancelled...As of right now, Kiwi and Muzza are not on speaking terms... It seems that Kiwi, in an effort to spice up the birthday celebration for Muzza, decided to, playfully and provocatively, jump out of a huge cake..Donned in nothing but her own "birthday suit", Kiwi jumped out of a larger than life bakery creation...Muzza was upset, though, that it was a devil's food cake as opposed to "angel's" food which would be more fitting for a man of his religious stature... AND HOW WAS YOUR MONTH?...

    Did he pass away?...

    O’Sullivan has added a Philly date for July 10...Now, if only I can get Nick Gilder and Chris Rea to the States...
  9. Put your dukes up...

    I was hoping to lure some people back...
  10. Put your dukes up...

    Knock it off...I’m not sure that the Raspberries had much in the way of influence...To me, power pop started with She Loves You and the early Beatle hits and moved on to Badfinger before the Berries started their thing... Also, I kind of parallel Eric/Raspberries career with John Waite/Baby’s...The Berries had one top ten and 2 other top twenty...That’s it...The Baby’s had two top 20’s and that’s it... Solo, both Eric and Waite had “cash register” monsters with Eric at number 2 (All By Myself) and Waite with a number one(Missing You)... Eric banged out 4 other top 20’s while Waite(solo and Bad English) had another number one(When I See You Smile) And one other top 20... I give Eric the slight edge in chart success although never having a number one while Waite had 2... Neither one had any significant impact with their lp’s, Group or solo.. I don’t think that sales totals tell the complete story...While many more musicians would credit Eric as an inspiration than Waite, John is known on both sides of the pond while Carmen is virtually unknown in Europe... Not sure that any of these guys (Springsteen, Bon Jovi, etc.) endorsements really mean anything...If you count the number of people that cite Don Mattingly as an influence, it certainly doesent make a case for Donnie Ballgame... As Craig eloquently pointed out, there is a difference in between Sports HOF’s and the Rock HOF... I am really Don’t see John Waite as a Hof’er and Eric either...But, then again, Bobby Bland is in there and not sure he is significant anywhere... Interesting debate/discussion...
  11. Rumor Mill

    Rumor was that they were there...Once again, Bernie withholding info on us...
  12. Rumor Mill

    At a recent Mott The Hoople NYC show, there was a mini ec.com reunion with Tommy Tunes, Pierson and Raspbernie...All The Old Dudes...
  13. Put your dukes up...

    I say that the Raspberries, as much as I love them, don’t belong in the R and R Hof....I’ll take on all challenges with appropriate arguments...Give me your best arguments “for” and I’ll use that same argument as to “nay”...The only argument that I won’t argue is that “The Raspberries should be In because “x” is in”...That is not a valid reason In my book...That is more an indictment on the other acts or the Hall itself...So Go All The Way and build your case...

    James...I will never short circuit a diaLEWgue about Lew in favor returning the topic to James...You just don’t have the name that conjures up any reason to concentrate our efforts to make you feel better...Therefore, more Lew and less James... Now that I got that off my chest, it’s time to “turn in”...Got my slippers, bathrobe and my favorite pair of paJAMESas, kick back with a nice shot of JAMESeson and watch a little Telly... Let’s check out the movie channels, hmm...A Johnny Weissmuller festival entitled, “Me Tarzan, you JAMES...What the heck?...No way will I watch that... How about the A and E network...”JAMEStown, the first settlement”...oh dear...followed by JAMES JONES’...”Kool-Ade anyone? I guess no movies for me...How about some nice music from the different music channel?...Oh, a 60’s station...a Tommy JAMES CONCERT...CLICK, LET’s check out the 40’s station...The best of Harry JAMES”...argh!!! Let’s try some Broadway tunes...Oh good...I love LEWie Armstrong...”You coax the blues right out of the horn, JAMES,... you charm the husk right off of the corn, JAMES.... I gotta get away from thinking about James...I know...Maybe I’ll Go workout at the JAMESnasium...No, I’ll just read the Bible...Let’s see, I got one here...”The Bible, Saint JAMES edition... A last resort, I’ll just pop in an Elvis movie...No James references in those titles...TURN on my VCR and voila!!! Elvis Presley starring in , HAREM Scarum... Geez...
