  1. I got through season two of "Rescue Me" on DVD in less time than it took me to read this post...
  2. Amazingly, I agree that every single "song" on this list is nothing more than dog squeeze. But I would respectfully like to add anything by The Power Station...
  3. Hell yeah! Screw Justin Timberlake - Marv's the one who's REALLY bringing sexy back...
  4. "America's Most Wanted?"
  5. I've always loved "Junior's Farm"; one of McCartney's best '70s-era rockers, with some great guitar work from Jimmy McCulloch.
  6. Concur 100%. "Tell Me How You Feel" is most definitely a "lost classic" in the annals of power pop. Sheer perfection...
  7. I think his name is Dick Hurtz. He's in the book.
  8. I think his first name was Richard...but you can just call him Big.....uh, never mind.....
  9. This is beautiful. Plus, check out the guy's last name. ______________________________________ Man Sues Over Long-Lasting Erection NEW YORK (June 5) - A man has sued the maker of the health drink Boost Plus, claiming the vitamin-enriched beverage gave him an erection that would not subside and caused him to be hospitalized. The lawsuit filed by Christopher Woods of New York said he bought the nutrition beverage made by the pharmaceutical company Novartis AG at a drugstore on June 5, 2004, and drank it. Woods' court papers say he woke up the next morning "with an erection that would not subside" and sought treatment that day for the condition, called severe priapism. They say Woods, 29, underwent surgery for implantation of a Winter shunt, which moves blood from one area to another. The lawsuit, filed late Monday, says Woods later had problems that required a hospital visit and penile artery embolization, a way of closing blood vessels. Closing off some blood flow prevents engorgement and lessens the likelihood of an erection. Woods' lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, names Novartis Consumer Health Inc. as a defendant. A spokeswoman for the company, Brandi Robinson, said Tuesday the company was aware of the lawsuit but does not comment on pending litigation. Woods' lawyer did not return telephone calls for comment Tuesday. Novartis' Boost Plus Web site describes the drink as "a great tasting, high calorie, nutritionally complete oral supplement for people who require extra energy and protein in a limited volume," in vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. ____________________________________________ How could the company that makes this stuff have pulled such a boner? I hope they get some stiff fines. It's hard to imagine this kind of thing happening. I guess I'm just wearing my heart on my sleeve here. What a cock and bull story!
  10. Good story, Howard. Here in Southern California, Starbucks also had events, including one close to my house with Chris Carter (formerly of the band Dramarama - Pierson, he says hi), the LA-area host of "Breakfast With the Beatles." Since I was off work Tuesday, I went down to check it out. Chris is a cool guy and has some great stories(including a funny one about Eric Carmen that discretion prevents me from recounting here). Anyway, I already had a copy of the new McCartney record, but I was able to win three Starbucks gift cards by answering Macca trivia. Very cool...
  11. Thanks for keeping everyone abreast of what is surely a heart-wrenchingly painful situation for all concerned, Marv.
  12. I for one know I will not be able to get any sleep until this is resolved.

    Hey, my daughter sold nearly 500 boxes this year - and I fit 'em all in the back of my PT Cruiser when I picked 'em up!
