  1. I was driving around yesterday listening to my favorite station (wxpn-fm out of philly) and I heard this song for the VERY FIRST time! I thought it was a new song. I thought the guy was doing a really good Billy Joel imitation...and I really liked it! When they said it was Billy Joel...I thought "But I hate Billy Joel!" Then I thought it was NEW Billy Joel and that he's improved...a lot. Come to find out it's 36 years old!! Don't know how I missed it...but I'm lovin' it now. C'mon give it a listen...and dance with me!! Dave
  2. For some reason I keep re-reading my previous post. Could it be because of Santa ellef's two lovely presents??!! Dave!!
  3. It looks to me like LOVE is just a re-release of old Clewer love songs. "Only Time Will Tell" (a duet with Eric from her 1996 "Call Me Romantic" CD) is part of the collection. Dave
  4. Randy Newman wrote it. Made it to #69 in the US in late '71. Have loved it for 40 years!! Dave
  5. "divorce court"?? Is it okay to swear in these postings? Well, I'm going to anyway...Oh f**k. There have been enough threads in this community about divorces to write 100 books, but none of them capture the gut-wrenching, heart breaking toll it takes on everyone. Hang in there Eric. We'll be right here for ya. Dave
  6. sounds like somebody's been hit by cupid's arrow!
  7. saying a prayer and thinking of you. dave
  8. Has anyone heard or commented on the new Footloose movie version of Almost Paradise? It's got a country twist (I think it's country). The singers are Victoria Justice and Hunter Hayes (born in 93 and 91 respectfully). The snippet of the song I heard on iTunes sounds out of tune and, imho, is painful to listen to. But hey...maybe the kids these days will like it!!! Dave
  9. Go to your town library! They've got online computers for free!
  10. Yup, that's what I was hoping to get across. BTW, I got a second job offer today!! :-)
  11. You all must be getting old. Not one of you commented on my Hawaiian Lesbian Wedding Adventure!!
  12. No worries, Belle. I just didn't want you to think I'm some kind of heartless deadbeat dad. I'm just a veeecktum of soycomestances (as Curly used to say).
  13. A little clarification...and an example of how f'ed up the whole system is: As I was running out of money I made sure to pay child support IN FULL. And I still am. My daughter's welfare is MY biggest concern. And, I knew that failure to pay child support could get me locked up. (BTW, my daughter is 20, is a full time college student junior and hasn't lived at home for two years....but the courts still think child support should go directly to the custodial parent.) Unfortunately, I was unable to pay anything towards alimony. So let's pretend (for simple math) I pay $400 a month in Child Support, and $2000 a month in alimony. When I went to court I discovered that the lovely state of NJ did NOT to allocate my full $400 to child support, but instead allocated $100 to child support and $300 towards alimony!!! So suddenly I was in the arrears on BOTH!!! Oh, and in case your wondering, my ex works in healthcare and makes close to six figures. For all of you who know me, thanks for your support. For everyone who's just getting to know me thru this thread, I hope this clears things up. Dave
  14. Yes, my ex is evil. Beyond evil, really. But, like you've all said, that's the past...and she's got herself to deal with now. For me, the future's so bright, I've gotta wear shades!
  15. I always thought the summer of '72 would be my most memorable. I was wrong. The summer of '11 has it beat by a mile. Now that it's officially autumn, let's re-cap: I spent the summer unemployed. I was considered for over 20 jobs. I was too old or too 'old school' or over qualified for all of them. I spent half the summer away from my wife. She works in Maine...we live in New Jersey. I spent over 150 hours on Route 95. I got two flat tires. I ran out of money. I filed for bankruptcy. I fell into the arrears on my alimony and child support. My ex showed no mercy. She had my license suspended. She had me arrested. Handcuffed. Processed. Fingerprinted. Put in jail. I paid fine and got released. I'm still out of money. But my new wife isn't!!! So...we went to a lesbian wedding in Hawaii ! We went to San Francisco...Muir Woods...hiked the Tennessee Valley. We spent several wonderful weekends in Maine. We consumed dozens of lobster rolls. We bbque'ed with friends. We spent every moment we could with my daughters. We laughed. We watched the sun come up. We went to a Red Sox game at Fenway. We drank red wine. We loved. We lived every moment like it was 1972. And yesterday (on the last full day of the summer) I got a job offer. Here's a happy little 2:16 song that fits how I'm feeling. Dave
  16. That song is truly wonderful. Thanks for sharing, Ira. Here's one of my favorite autumn song:
  17. I'm going to the Four Seasons Resort in Hawaii to attend a lesbian wedding. I win!!!!! (oh, and both of 'em are totally hot!!)
  18. Yo, Dude. Happy Birthday. Dave
  19. "No Matter What"! Absolutely!!!! And that Searchers song??? Awesome!!!! Here's an obscure one. Listen all the way thru to the acapella part at the end. "Smokescreen" by Flying Blind (from American Pie Soundtrack) Naughtly lyrics....gotta love it.
  20. "Doo-Wop Power Pop"! Love it!!
  21. For pure rockin, power pop...with harmonies and great hook.
  22. For pure fun, harmonies and melody:
  23. My God I'm becoming Sybil ! Growing up in Mass, living in NJ, working in NY, and now with my wife working in Maine, I'm all over the place!!! Yes, Massholes is Maine's cute name for all you (us?) Bay Staters. I have to admit, it's catchy.
