  1. Methinks that Jim and Dave are REALLY REALLY close to the real thing!!!Muy cool!
  2. Just read your post Billy K. ...It seems like she had a good life...unlike SO many 60's singers...Good for her...She was loved!
  3. Beverly and I are very excited....to have you guys visit us here in the the New Jersey..also known as the Riviera of the Northeast!!!
  4. Happy Happy Birthday Annie!
  5. Thanx everyone.spent week in Vegas....it was great...
  6. So glad Batman and Susie to bring back a good memory for you....
  7. Cilla Black...was MUCH bigger in the U.K. than in the States...But Mr. Lennon persuaded Mr. Epstein to sign her.. She was GOOD... Here's a live performance of her one tune to crack the Top 40 in the USA.. Go to Youtube and get to know her... Call me corny..BUT I LOVE melodramatic..crescendo stuff like this...Enjoy!!!
  8. I found all your comments about Celine Dion's over-the-topness...ALL so on target...The old American Idol contestants' tendency to oversing... BUt at least Celine's beats THIS...
  9. For the 1,00,000th time I read about "All By Myself" by Celine Dione being some female celebrity's favorite..."I got the blues...and I'm gonna indulge myself" song. I get it..Eric made a FORTUNE on Celine Dione's version... If I'm not mistaken...She was THE biggest singer in the world when she released it back when albums by superstars sold millions... Still.. If it was me..(I have no idea how Eric feels...perhaps he's more pragmatic than me)..I'd have mixed feelings...'cause Eric did the definitive version.. Anyhoo..the best record I ever heard about the dilemma OF GOOD NEWS/BAD NEWS was this Sam the Sham lost hit...Enjoy...Ira..
  10. So again...Now I quote the great Jewish Prophet Neil Diamond...(who wrote this great Monkees tune).. Should I consider this piece of advice when evaluating relationships......?
  11. Mary Ellen...I always joke that rather than quoting bible or great philosophers...I quote the true geniuses like Ringo...("It Don't Come Easy") and of course....at the end of EVERY workday in the NYC public school system...the final bell would ring in my particular rock quarry...and my lips would softly quote Dr. F. Flintstone...
  12. James..I'm with you...It doesn't hurt...It gets tiring...ya feel like a schmuck for having extended yourself...but it REALLY ain't that hard once you realize it...you do just move on.
  13. Ya know as Dr. Ringo Von Starr so wisely said.. in life..."It Don't Come Easy".. I've actually dropped a few friends... I'll tell you why.... We all have friends who right now might be going thru something worse than we are. Thus..it's appropriate for us to be proactive and call more often to ask them how they're doing.. But ya know..if they NEVER contact us to ask us.." how are you"...that's not O.K. One of the nice things about gettin' older...There's just some shit ya don't have to deal with anymore..."And That's Alright by Me Tonight"-B.Springsteen! (BTW...This has NOtHING to do with anyone on this site..It's just something I think about...ALL relationships require some give and take...and we all have friends who forget that !)
  14. Caught Burton Cummings lastJuly 4th in A.C.....The man is great...definitely has NOT become "Undun"" with the passage of time.

    Little Struggles!

    All our lives...we've been told..."Don't put your fiingers on the glass"...be it ..windows in our homes...the coffee table...the car windshield...NOW...we have cool IPhones and Ipads...and what are we supposed to do...? Put our fingers directly on the glass screen...and in 90 seconds after purchasing these BEAUTIFUL new devices we just bought... we have fingerprints and salsa...all over them... I've had many trials and tribulations in my life...BUT this dilemna...I'm not sure I can rise above...
  17. Matt..Yup...Echoes of "Sloop John B"...BUT hell...I repeat myself all the time...But hell I repeat myself all the time...
  18. Susie..Didja get a chance to look at "More New Brian Wilson Stuff"...I think that's another WOW +.. !
  19. Glad you enjoyed...I'm not surprised that Y'all thinks Eric's best beats Brian's best...It is afterall EC.com...and I kinda figure Y'all like Eric... I'm a traitor..Brian is my #1 musical love. May I still attend the Ec.com All-You-Can-Eat Buffet on July 4th.... ?
  20. Another song from April 7 release..."No Pier Pressure"... The man's still got it... If you don't agree..Why don't we step outside and have it out under the boardwalk at Venice Beach... :angry: !

    Little Struggles!

    Bein' 63 and ALWAYS bein' the little brother...but letting little patronizing moments go without saying something 'cause after all it's family...:)

    Little Struggles!

    M.E. .that was ABSOLUTELY NOT code for you...I am 63... I have a couple of friends who are struggling.....We're older now...BUT relationships should be somewhat reciprocal..and my asking how someone is..is not an invitation to sound like Everybody Loves Raymond's mother Marie.
  23. What are some daily things you struggle with..not earth shattering...but vexing nonetheless...? If I scratch my bumper..get a parking ticket...leave a bag of groceries at the store... ...these are things I can't rationalize....and claim that I was in top form...BUT these are things that are really no big deal...yet I have trouble saying that the human condition is not to be perfect..and S#@T happens. I also sometimes have trouble when I have a friend who currently, truly, is dealing with something more difficult than my present state..be it..illness...job...heartbreak.. I feel impelled to check in periodically to see how they are doing. Yet when they have NEVER initiated a call to me just to say hi or just ask how I am...I get mixed up...I ain't sure it's O.K. that there's no reciprocation. .and I am not a big enough man not to resent it a little...
  24. I'm interested in hearing about songs that you love that that you never understood why they were not bigger Smashes....My Raspberries Nominee...is...and always will be. (I didn't mean this thread for just Eric songs...I'll be back later with the Searchers, the Beach boys..etc. ...BUT...This is as good a spot to start as any...)
  25. Happy Birthday my friend..and a great birthday present for you..The Red Sox...though we're a little wary about the pitching...may be great this year.
