  1. Haveing been a Packer fan my entire life and seen Brett Favre play many times over his 17 year career, all but one with the Packers, I'll say this....he's not the most tactful when he speaks. He simply speaks his mind and he gets emotional. Sometimes he gets in trouble for it. But that's why he special...he tells it like it is. I was pissed too when our GM didn't get Randy Moss. Yes, Brett should have probably just swore to his friends and family, and then moved on. But that's just not him. I'm glad he said it. I don't think he does the things he does and says for publicity or drama...that's just the way he is. Like retiring for example....he really didn't know what he wanted to do, I believe. He was torn between the two and didn't want to make a quick decision, even though we all wished he did. Brett Favre is a unique and great athlete. He may have lost some fans the past few years, but he's gained even more admiration from this life-long Packer fan. Thanks.
  2. That is not good news, I was really looking forward to her new album. I really love her voice and have been waiting for this album, especially because I heard she was co-writing the songs. That Clive Davis..........arghhhh!!!! paula....razzy, had to add my name as I notice my dear hubby forgot to sign off........double arghhhhhh.
  3. Dave Edmunds and Rockpile were great! You gotta love those big old hollow body Gibsons they're playing. Rockabilly. There's a term you don't hear much anymore.
  4. Letterman....really can't stand Leno.
  5. That was cool. I'm a big Monkees fan. That made me smile. Thanks.

  7. Hey Marv. I couldn't let Paula totally speak for me, but she's pretty much right about my tastes. I haven't searched out new music...I love my classic rock from the 70s. It's not that I don't think anything good is out there now, but I haven't heard anything I like, not that I've heard that much. So, I listen to what I like. Nothing wrong with that. It brings back memories and I never get sick of it. Though, I hear Rush is releasing a new album. Does that count? By the way, Paula is only 47, not 48.
  8. I caught it a couple weeks ago when I was in Florida. I thought it was pretty good, too, though I could do without Yoko's screaming. I loved the whole flower power and feel of the 60s. Seeing those bands perform back then was pretty cool.
  9. I was never a big fan either. I just watched their Grammy performance on YouTube and thought it was just OK. JohnO...I like your friend's words of wisdom. Now that I think of it, that's so true. There are songs I hear over and over again and just love them. Then there's songs like Roxanne, that was overplayed, and like other posters here, don't care if I ever hear it again. Now the Beatles....we've heard their songs for over 40 years now, and never get sick of them.
  10. Thanks Tim. Wow, Roger sounds really good. It's hard to believe it's been 32 years since their first concert in the US in Milwaukee at the Uptown Theater on April 4, 1975. I was supposed to go to that show with some friends in High School, but for some reason couldn't go at the last minute. I was bummed. Didn't really know much about them at the time, but I heard it was a great concert. At the time, who knew they would become so big? I just may have to see Roger next time.
  11. That is soooo cool Julia, congrats!!! It looks terrific!!! Paula....Mrs. Wallytosa
  12. 24 - I love it...can't get enough of it. The only people I know at work that watch it decided to wait until the season is over and buy the DVD and watch the whole thing in 2 days, because they can't bear to wait a whole week between shows! So they would rather wait a whole season? Sheesh. Now I have no one to talk to about it. Yeah, I'm surprised that Jack did what he did at the end. But then, not really. That's 24. I think President and Martha Logan are to appear again this season. The first lady rocked last season. I don't know....I still have a hard time believing Wayne Palmer is President. But he's far superior than that weazel Logan....so far anyway. Best damn show on television.
  13. Unbelievable finish to the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl (that's with a "t" which is what I think Marvin was referring to)...one of the best games ever. It will go down in history as a classic. The statue of liberty play wins it - who would've thought? And the designed pass reception and lateral pitch for a TD. Kudos to Boise State's win. It was nice to see a non-BCS conference team get a big win like that. I wish there was a playoff, because then my 12-1 Wisconsin Badgers wouldn't have been shut out of the BCS because of the "only 2 teams from a conference" rule.
  14. Thanks Eric. Paula and I hope you and your family have a great and safe year. And that goes for your Raspberries family, too, including the band and all the great fans.
  15. I, too, hope Brett comes back....he can still play, period. They are just a few players away from being pretty good, and I hope the Packers use some of that $29 million (that's how much they're under the cap) to use. Tony Gonzales would look great in a Packer uniform. Let's give Brett one more chance for a second chmapionship. If not, one of the greatest players to ever play the game and a sure first ballot hall of famer.
  16. I got that CD for Christmas but haven't had time to listen to it yet. I did hear "Here Comes The Sun" on the radio and was impressed with the new beginning. Can't wait to hear the rest. Thanks Billy.
  17. Were you watching the Monday Night Football game in Seattle tonight? Wow, it was a blizzard there in the first half. It was really coming down and looked more like Lambeau Field, not Seattle. Though, my beloved Packers stunk unfortunately. Would have liked to see Favre have a good game on possibly his last time on MNF. I think he'll be back with our good young talent though. The announcers made a comment that it's been raining every day for the last 4 weeks in Seattle. Is that true? Yuck. Seattle is still a nice city though, just wet.
  18. Thanks for the report Trindy. Too bad it didn't turn out as advertised. Only one song on the jumbotron? That's too bad. I hope everyone who attended has a nice time nevertheless.
  19. How about Yesterday by the Beatles? I don't care to hear that any more. Most Beatles songs I could listen to over and over and admire just about all of them, except that one. I agree with Stairway to Heaven. Even though I'm one of a zillion people who can play it on guitar and my old high school band played it, I will usually turn the channel when I hear it on the radio now, even though I love Led Zeppelin. Though, it's funny how different songs mean different things to people. I love Free Bird and Sweet Home Alabama, mostly because they have a special place in my memories of my high school years. When I hear the first notes of Sweet Home Alabama, I do what Ronnie Van Zant says right in the beginning of the song and "Turn it up".
  20. Marv...the parade is not until Saturday, the 25th. Though, I know...we're all anxious.
  21. I love Styx, but Mr. Roboto is really bad as someone already pointed out. I don't like Babe either. In short, I like their earlier rockin' songs more than the later ballads. That's why the version of the band touring today is more appealing to me than Dennis DeYoung's version. Same with REO Speedwagon...I loved the early stuff when they were a rock and roll band. R.E.O. 2 is still one of the best albums, but they started going downhill with the ballads like Time For Me To Fly or Can't Fight This Feeling.
  22. I would have to say any rap is the worst. Chicken dance has to have my vote, along with that Barney song. Oh, and what about that "Uga chucka, uga chucka, uga, uga, uga, chucka" song? Take away the uga chuckas and it wasn't a bad song. However, I'm with Marv and Tony on this one...I love Yes! I saw them with the original lineup a few years ago and they were absolutely great. Many of the others, too, I like. And lots of the older one hit wonders mentioned here bring back lots of memories, so I enjoy listening to them. I like Lisa Loeb, Styx, ELP, Van, etc, too. Obviously, everyone has different tastes, and that's ok. Interesting though.
  23. I saw Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman together many years ago in a small venue and it was one of the best concerts I ever saw. I wonder if Burton still has the voice? It would be a good DVD if they both still have it. I may check it out.
  24. I don't remember seeing that before....do we dare to hope that a tour will be announced sometime soon?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  25. Cool. Does anyone know if that Department Store window where Ralphie first saw an "official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle" is still there? Higbee's, I believe is the name of it. Maybe some locals can fill us in on some movie trivia. I'm assuming this is also the same parade that was featured in "A Christmas Story" as well. When we came to Cleveland for the first reunion show, I remember seeing that same public square with the statue in it from the parade in the movie. It was pretty close to the HOB.
