    Let's Pretend
  1. Hello from Estonia

    That's right, Susie!!! The man had a great knack for producing...and gosh, he did a great job on both versions of "Let's Pretend" ...and here's Jimmy and "Mr. WendyWorld" in 1976. PS: You're welcome Señor James.
  2. Hello from Estonia

    Gosh...I miss the times we would "side bar." So happy you discovered your ancestry. And I think I will check back from time to time to see the weigh in for the election...it could be interesting.
  3. Hello from Estonia

    James...you slay me. I miss you on facebook...just sayin'... As for youtube videos...I happened to like this one, though I can't remember how to embed it. Anyway...sleep soundly my friend, if you can...
  4. Hello from Estonia

    Bernie! I'd be happy to fry some Blynai up for you...I guess it's just another way to say potato pancakes, and I'll serve it with fresh soured cream, from the grocery store. But you know that Krupnikas is my "thang." Seriously, I have 5 bottles made with raw honey sitting in my closet just waiting to be shared. Liquid amber at its finest!
  5. Hello from Estonia

    No thanks needed, but thank you for your kind words. I was happy to protest on behalf of those Northern European people who lived in the Baltic States at said time, many of those were my own relatives. I was prepared to go to jail if need be to bring awareness to their plight. My amazing, wonderful and beautiful Daddy was interviewed at our Lithuanian-Catholic church during the time of uprising against Soviet occupation. He spoke from his heart for all our relatives in Lithuania...I was ever so proud of him. As for this not being a political site, I am happy to say that it very much has been in more ways than one since I first joined at the very end of 2007, and why I actually signed on and read it yesterday. I wanted to see if there was any discussion on the up coming Presidential election as we had done 8 years ago. What a time to be on this site! We've exchanged views on politics, religion, conspiracy theories...even sex...as well as music. Truly a free speech zone which I have always thought to be wonderful and to add to it...this is the place which I first realize that I love to "write." A win-win situation for me at least!
  6. Hello from Estonia

    Well, you didn't offend me...I just wanted to clarify that we as Balts are pretty spectacular in our own right, each culture, each special, each different. And...we're so strong together. OK, so I as a Lithuanian American could only do my part in the 90's living in America, protests and such...but the 3 nations of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia sure held their own during Soviet occupation and breaking free from it! We're all distinct, yet so connected in a round about way. I find it "magically delicious!"
  7. Hello from Estonia

    Well, I...as a VERY PROUD American of Lithuanian descent don't see that there is any comparison going on unless I missed it. My Lithuanian culture is different than your Estonian one, and I am so happy for it, like jump for joy that I am a Lithuanian, I would never want to be anything but a Lithuanian...and I'm sure we're both proud of our own heritage as both bring different aspects to the world. We're Balts, and I for one am proud to be a Balt through descent...and the many Estonians (and Latvians) I've met understood the comradery with that. Of course the cultures are different, they're different countries for goodness sake. Again...I don't see anyone comparing them...and if they did, is it a bad thing, or a chance for us to educate others on what each of those cultures brings to this wonderful planet?
  8. Gene Simmons: "Rock Is Finally Dead"

    WOW! It is beyond "awesome" to use a very California surfer/girl word to get on this forum and once again read intelligent banter about a few different subjects all in one thread. It's like the way it used to be. I love it! The whole thread. And LC's usual, it's great to see your name. Oh, and James, I'm still looking for that next great video for you to "enjoy." You're welcome. PS: I think the word "sexist" gets tossed around more freely these days than "Rizzo" was in the movie "Grease." If someone called me "little girl" I guess I'd have to know the context in which it was used, as I will always be Ed Antanaitis', "little girl" and love that label! Sure, it may be demeaning, but from what I read, I think it doesn't necessarily warrant an automatic "sexist" label. Just my thoughts. This to me was more of an ad hominem, than sexist.
  9. Guardians Soundtrack Garners Gold Record!

    Sometimes wonderful things come in unexpected packages. Congratulations to the Raspberries and the other artists involved. Very cool! Very cool...indeed.
  10. My Team

    Very cool, James...
  11. Request for A Raspberries Encore!

    All of us were new here at one time. Many questions are repeated when one is new and perhaps hasn't read every question in this or any other forum where said question may have been asked before. That's OK. The earth won’t be knocked off of its axis by a repeated question. Cheryl, I think it's fair to ask any question that isn't rude, crude or socially unacceptable. Leave that for Lew Bundles.
  12. Vote for "Go All The Way"

    Hi James...Yes, I've known Cherie for almost 20 years now. She is a standup lady, a caring friend and has one rockin' voice. I've had the pleasure of singing with her at one of her home parties, even though she's more "Rock" and I'm more "Sound of Music." At any given time when she hosts a party, some musician will break out a guitar and a sing-a-long will ensue. It is really cool! I always get to play "the egg." I am the Tracy Partridge of the bunch, sans triangle but with "the egg." I've met Joan Jett once, 4 years ago and she was the sweetest! She told me that the guitar she bought from Eric is "hidden away so no one can touch it." She plays it only on special occasions. Now...having said all of that, I still want GATW to win. It's just a better song than "Cherry Bomb." PS: She (Cherie) and Bob (Robert Hays) are divorced but are the BEST of friends. It's lovely to see. They have one son, Jake who is an amazing young man. Nice to see too!
  13. Robin Williams dead

    One thing that definitely can be said about Robin Williams is that the "dash" between 1951-2014, sure wasn't wasted! Good for him. Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, Old time is still a-flying: And this same flower that smiles to-day To-morrow will be dying.
  14. I'm Back...Again

    And with all this going on...Kiwi and Muzza still took the time to send me (and Mom) a card when they heard my Mom had 2 seizures. That folks...is a prime example of good friends, even if we're 1000's of miles apart. So happy you're doing well, Muz. Be careful with the pepper.
  15. Robin Williams dead

    A fine line between genius and insanity. Robin always seemed to walk that, at least to me. He had to be one of the most talented people to ever grace this earth. What makes someone want to leave his wife and family behind…as well as give up his own life to just end it all? My heart is a little bit heavier tonight over a man, I’ve never met…but who was so much a part of my life since I was a kid. Rest in eternal peace, you comic genius.
