  1. I mean that in a round about sort of way. Eric's music and lyrics speak to people in a very profound way. Always right on the mark.
  2. What's funny is this thread should be under That's Rock and Roll or Everything, but it wound up here. A clear attribution to Eric's work.
  3. I believe you Darren. However, my take on it is this. Cyberstuff is great, don't get me wrong, but I feel more involved playing an instrument than I do just clicking and waiting for the outcome. I'm coming in on the back side on technology. I've been on a computer at work for years. To actually play an instrument is pure. I'm sure you already know that since you've played 36 years. That must feel great. Me, when I say I can compose on a piano, it ususally means I'm just rebooting myself. A 'get away from a structured world'. In the process I find creativity.
  4. Steve K, congratulations to you and your lady. To quote Darren: 'Hey, whatever works.' Women and men are different, but everyone has a heart that needs to be spoken to. Don't forget that.
  5. Thanks for the info Julie. Strangely enough, I didn't do a thing and now its working. Go figure. Kathy, I was thinking that I should get a MAC on the way to the store cause of what people on this board have already said about it. Coulda, shoulda, didn't. I'll remember your advise and use it next time.
  6. Paulie, ec.com is one of the reasons I got a home computer. Admin at work won't allow me to have Quicktime. So with high hopes I installed Quicktime at home. ActiveX will let me listen to the video Bernie put up but I can't see it. Back to the drawing board.
  7. My brand new home computer is not what I expected it to be. I've spent the weekend and each night so far this week customizing and tweaking(sp?). Got a lot more pleasue and peace out of playing piano. With piano I can play, explore, compose. I have auto 'don't do that' buttons, like hitting the wrong sharp, flat, or key Built in security, at my fingertips, on demand. Without windows, defragmentation, viruses and the like. How pure is that fellow ec.com people? You already know.
  8. Eric, Happy Birthday! Hope your day is filled with all you could want. Thank you for the beautiful music. I hope I look as good as you do when I get there.
  9. I was a MTV/VH1 junkie till the videos were replaced with garbage. :rolleyes:
  10. Hate automated/voice interactive phone systems that will not allow you to as for the operator or press 0...Grrrrrrr. And you're there talking to a machine that sounds like a real person with personality and you don't want to be. You want to talk to a real person, darn it.
  11. Can't wait...yes I can...no I can't...yes I can...missed the shows...came on board too late...kicking myself...sigh. Can't wait to see what is coming! Ah, antisipation...

  13. Matt, I've been away and did not see this thread till today. I'm praying for you. God bless.
  14. Paulie, hope your Dad gets better and keeps trucking along. Prayers and good thoughts.
  15. Tony, I'm so glad your Mom has gotten through the surgery! Seems a lot has been going on here while I was on vacation. Best wishes to you and your Mom.

    Chris, I am praying for your wife and you. Wishing and praying for 'good news' on the results.
  17. Matt, so sad to hear about your loss. My deepest sympathies are with you and your family. Take care.
  18. Laura, I have heard sooooo many horror stories about motorcycle accidents. So good to hear that your brother is going to pull through. Sending prayers out for him. Was just watching a show on Discovery Health yesterday all about some of the people that make prosthetics and their patients. About the patients mental recovery as well as their physical. Sending good thoughts as well. Best wishes.
  19. I remember watching the Mike Douglas show as a kid but I was so young then I don't remember any specifics. Muzza, the administrator over the system for the company I work for won't allow certain downloads. Wonder why your system won't allow it?
  20. "Pick yourself up, Dust yourself off, Start all over again" Lyrics by: Dorothy Fields. I just looked up the lyrics to that song "Pick Yourself Up" ..pretty relevant to me, sort of. Thanks for all the kind words of encouragement and all! It is very reassuring to have nice folks like y'all around!
  21. I thought it would be appropriate to give an update on my situation. A few months of seperation and now the divorce is final. At first I thought I jumped the gun and shouldn't have gone thru with it, but it can't be changed now and I am getting used to it. I have begun assertiveness training, applying it a little bit here and there. Baby steps. I had to learn to open my mouth and speak up for myself in every area of my life. I think not being able to have a healthy equal disagreement or discussion or conversation with my ex led me to the mindset of-why bother wasting my breath. My now ex and I are still seeing each other exclusively. However, I am still much in the dark when it comes to him. He is a hard nut to crack. However, being alone has given me time to step back and see some of the real him. Most of what I have discovered about him I don't feel good about. It is hard not to need a man. Things break, truck needs fixing, etc... he's a very good handman and pretty much a jack of all trades. It is not easy to sum it all up in a few short lines. Anyway, I have begun to write a fiction story(even though I'm not nor have ever been a writer) it is my escape from reality sometimes and a 'perfect life'dream that I now fantasize about. I am also relearning piano and just trying to work on myself, and stay sane and look at the bright side. I also think I have had some sort of mid life realization(or mid life crisis as they call it). Piano is harder than I remember it to be but fun none the less. Best wishes to all of you!
