  1. Happy Birthday MJ!!

    Thanks. Unfortunately I have not learned to play slap yet, and I do believe I hear a bit in this song, so it will have to wait lol. I will have to upload some new tunes I can play but with all this new Copyright Internet policing going on it may never make You Tube lol.
  2. Saw Eric's Double Today

    at Publix Supermarket about 20 minutes ago lol in the Express Checkout Lane. Let me give you a description: Brown Hair, the "Mr. Magoo" glasses he wears sometimes, jeans, dark shirt, tanned, about 5'8". I tried to listen to the voice but he was too far away for me to distinguish. Never thought I'd see an Eric double in Bradenton lol.
  3. Beach Boys/Cowsills

    So I went to see Mike Love's Beach Boys this past Sunday and had 3rd row orchestra seats. I had deep reservations because 1) I am not a great fan of Mike Love since he pretty much stopped more dates for the full original band last year; 2) Only Mike and Bruce were going to be there. I was however looking forward to seeing John Cowsill play the drums. I actually was totally floored on how great the show was. Mike Love's voice was stronger than any video/dvd I've seen of him singing over the past year. We were sitting right in front of Bruce but had a great view of everyone on stage. Mike's son Christian was a good singer as well and the bass player was doing most of the high Brian parts. John sang Darlin, Help Me Rhonda (where he forgot his intro and ending up throwing his stick up into space) and Wouldn't it Be Nice. Well you know how I feel about that song lol - I went into lala land. They ended with my father's fav BB song Fun Fun Fun. I honestly can say if they played again I would probably go - but would want front row seats lol. Now on the other front - The Cowsills front - I just read that finally the documentary Family Band: The Story of the Cowsills will be airing on Showtime starting 3/6 on Showtime 2 at 8:00 pm and Friday March 8 (my birthday ahaha) n Showtime Showcase at 7:30 pm. They are airing it I believe 13 times in March. I am looking forward to watching the documentary - I've seen some clips of it on You Tube and it looks very good.

  10. Voting Harrassment

    Ok - Normally I never post but let me just tell you what happened this afternoon in our neighborhood. It's a nice day - about 80 out with a slight breeze - I thought to myself - hmmm - I think I'll take out the new John Taylor autobiography and read it in the front yard and enjoy the day. (Yes I know - John Taylor??? Duran Duran??? Oh MJ what are you thinking... I am thinking he was really HOT in the 80's and I know he had a lot of dedpendency issues so I figured it would be a good read)... anyway, moving along, I put the chair out in the driveway with my back to the road so I'm facing the sun - I spy 2 young people walking down our street. Hmmm I wonder what they are doing... suddenly I hear someone say Miss Fisher? I turn and look and see the 2 young people standing there - I realize they are coming to harrass me about voting - I don't respond to Miss Fisher - then I blatantly lie and say I'm not her and then further tell them I am not registered to vote. They go on their way - meanwhile I hear another voice coming from the condos around the bend from my house and hear this woman talking about voting. I'm still watching the 2 going down the street door to door. Suddenly I hear the woman asking the guy who is just moving out junk from a rental house next door about voting - he's saying - No he's not so and so.... suddenly I spy the 2 teenagers across the street from my house and they are harrassing a 17 year old about voting.... the older woman starts towards my house - I say "Don't even bother" to her - she gets all sweet and light and says "well have a nice day, I was just reminding you to vote" I again say I am not registered. She walks to the next door neighbor's house and then I spy another 2 people meeting up with her. So much for my peace and quiet and enjoying reading a book. I go inside and tell my mother about all these people going door to door ONE AFTER THE OTHER within 5 minutes of eachother when THE DOORBELL RINGS again!!! My mother tells me "I don't want you to get the door because you will get nasty with them" so instead she goes and opens the garage door and I hear her yelling "THIS IS ABSOLUTE HARRASSMENT!!!! I HAVE ALREADY VOTED BY ABSTENTEE BALLOT AND YOU PEOPLE ARE ALL HARRASSING US - THERE IS NO SOLICITING IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD! LMFAO - now what's really funny is it was both parties following eachother around - I'm sure someone called the cops on them all because within 15 minutes our entire block got called on 3 freaking times by all parties!!! I can't wait until this election is over! Oh and by the way.... don't forget to vote! BAH HUMBUG!
  11. Oh Sandy!

    I just talked to Diane on the phone to be sure she was ok since the storm. My brother in NYC and my friends in NJ still don't have any power and there are a few relatives no one can seem to get a hold of how lived down the shore so I hope they are ok. It's gonna be a long hard haul for all of those who have suffered but let's hope they will be able to rebuild and get back to "somewhat normal" very soon! Hope everyone else is ok out there.
