  1. in 2021 this is an "offensive" thread)....Martha Quinn? 2. Mary Ann or Ginger? 3. Pam or Jenna (Dallas)? 4. Chrissie or Janet? 5. Bunnie or Lou Ann Poovie? 6. Mrs. Ingles or Ms. Beadle? 7. Mrs. Brady or Mrs. Partridge? 8. Mrs. Bundy or Marcy? 9. Dulcey (Cimarron Strip)...or any other female character from a Western tv series? 10. Lori Partridge or Marcia Brady? (pretend you are again a teenager when answering this, don't want any of you guys cancelled for admiring a young woman) 11. Wildcard...you guys choose the duo and choose. Ok, I'll answer later, step up to the plate boys (and girls too). What are your choices?

    Nah, I love Vinnie....it's just when he can't argue a point, he resorts to being an asshole, and goes way over the line with his assholeness (new word, someone must advance the language). And contrary to what the Osmonds (or possibly the Jacksons?) said, one apple that allows itself to become rotten, CAN spoil the whole bunch, ...girl. And Kirk, not bad, though you should man up and sign your poems, and date them, dating poems provides necessary context. Normally I charge for these poet lessons, but just for you, and your hard work here, especially in editing my boob photos of Sophie Marceau,...I'm giving you a hardship free pass. : Thanks Lew, thanks Susie, thanks Kirk, you guys are kind, so much so it makes me embarrassed : ) Final thought: James is good, James is great. James is with whom, All chicks want to mate. James, 2021

    Hi Lew. Lurking here and there. I reviewed the thread over in Cartoon World to see if I overreacted, but to the contrary I´ve concluded that I probably underreacted. In one thread (on top of others in the past) one member here besmirched my manhood, called me a racist, called me a trouble maker, told me my name is too lower class to be included with a name like Eric Carmen....and then he demanded I be removed from this site. I obviously can take stuff like this, as I have during my life, and will see more of it in the future as I move forward in my life with more challenging endeavors. But what hit me hard when re-reading the thread, was that nobody said anything, everyone fundamentally went on with that member as if all was normal and hunky dorry. If anyone noticed, whenever a member is attacked here via lies and cheap shots, I stick up for them. It´s so basic. It´s fundamental in a neighborhood or a group of friends etc....or even in a group of strangers when one of the strangers is being lied about/maligned unfairly. I always try to stick up for them. The fact this member does his thing with impunity tells me stuff. I deal with shit in my life, as we all do, and I have actually learned to enjoy the battle/dealing with it out in the world, but when it comes to choosing where I spend my private time, it isn´t going to be where I am lied about, maligned via lies.....where the rest of the community sees it as just a political dust up. It has nothing to do with politics. Nothing. Calling someone a racist etc. has nothing to do with politics. It´s just that we have become soft in the head, have become inured to one Party falsely claiming racism as their main party plank, and like feeble minded people we come to see it as politics. Anyway, that´s where I´m coming from. Wanted to communicate this, will be deleting this post soon. James

    And really, what is "First Nation" status. Is it the Commanche?....who sadistically gained lands by sadistically conquering lands from other tribes? How about the Iroquois?......see what they did to the Algonquins and another tribe up there in the NorthEast in order to have hegemony of "their" lands?..how about the Apache? The Seminole who had slaves? What about the Sioux in the north/northwest? Or even better, how about the murderous warring Aztecs of today´s Mexico?......who modern day wokists worship? Or read about how the Inca consolidated power in South America? Then compare these Indian nations warring and conquering, with how the U.S. treated them when they were conquered. Point: I love our Indian history and foundation, and they were often treated horribly by the USA. These tribes had dignity which I respect a ton. But, get some persepctive on history, put yourself in 1850 North America, where your daughter, just for wandering a little too far from home could lose her scalp (and life), and captured Whites (and other Indians from other tribes) would be roasted on a fire for days, not dying for days, while the Indians drank and enjoyed their own sadism re: watching these roasted humans suffer and eventually die. For Western Hemisphere descendents of our Native Indian tribes to claim "Victim-Saint" status is an egregeous insult to the great, brave, dignified Indian people who roamed our lands before the Europeans got here, and for some time after. To claim "Victim-Saint" status is a joke, unless you are willing to judge these violent Indian Tribes with the same lens you judge European Americans. But nobody will, because.....I don´t know what the because is. What´s the most crazy, is we lie down and allow ourselves to be told we are less than the Victim-Saints, when it is a lie, and just as bad, it deletes the justified love we have (had) for the USA, which when you tabulate the credits and debits of the overall ledger, is the greatest political entity in history with respect to efficacy in improving the human condition for the human race, all over the world. I´ll stop. I know these posts of mine don´t jive with what the site is trying to be about. It´s just that I can´t shrug off the bullshit, when it arrives here. Bullshit that may seem innocous to most, but to me is the cancer that will kill this nation for those who come after us.
  5. Eric's Beloved Indians

    Practically everywhere on Earth can be argued is misnamed. It happens. It´s been 500 years. Get over it whiny Americans. I´m American, what do I have to do with Amerigo Vespucci? And is Raj, Darsh and Aakesh (along with my many friends from India) truly Indians? We must ask who named "India", and when?....I am sure it was some Westerner, so maybe we should call our friends from India Hindus (like they do here in Panamá) or Hindustanis?....etc etc etc. Because I doubt, people from India are "true Indians" as India is to at least a certain degree, a misnomer for them, at least given how we are defining it here. What about "Romania",......should it be named after the Empire (Rome) that conquered it 2000 years ago, and held it for only 200 years?..... So why don´t we all jump into the whirl pool, look up our nations´ names, find out they are misnombers of history, and whine...and whine...and demand we be treated as the Victim-Saints we are. If we can´t beat them let´s join them, and become a victim of this, that...of history, compulse on race, ethnicity, then compulse on race and ethnicity some more. It´s great. If we can claim we are a victim, we get traction. So we play into it, and thus feed it. Etc.

    I went to my first baseball game in Cleveland, circa 1967. My best friend and his Dad, invited me and my Dad to drive up to Cleveland. I soon became a baseball freak, wore Cubs jackets everywhere, including to my own games, I couldn´t wait for the morning newspaper to get scores so I´d call the sports department of the Columbus Dispatch in the afternoon to find out the Cubs´ score. Baseball was a great part of my youth. Sadly, for kids today, it´s not what it once was on many fronts. It´s an abomination that such a great ballsy city and franchise caved to the mob. Pathetic. But I´ve sworn off baseball, along with all American sports, likely forever. Fortunately. So I am divorced almost 100% from this cancerous cowardice. James
  7. Nice comments on Side Three…

    Never really liked I'm a rocker until I heard it live at the reunion show and subsequently on the live albums. Much better live. So much so that the live version may be my fave Raspberries song of them all.
  8. Deep Tracks - Eric Carmen

    Allright, let´s just get to the nut. Ranking the songs: 1. My Girl 2. Sunrise 3. Everything (might be #1 if longer) 4. No Hard Feelings (for most my Eric Carmen fandom, it was my #1 or #2 song of his catalog. The final 2 minute climax is what propels this song into greatness, hard to find a heavy rocking band that jams as intensely as the final 2 minutes of this song). 5. Never Gonna Fall in Love Again (could be #1 on any given day). 6. That´s Rock & Roll (would be the flagship song for most artists, it´s that great, but on possibly the greatest melody album of all time, it comes in at #5. How great is this album!!!) 7. All By Myself, a great song, I just like the above 6 better. 8. Last Night 9. Great Expectations, I consider this also a great song. So unique, so fun, so creative, and truly melodic. 10. On Broadway - he does a nice job on this cover, better than any others I´ve heard. Good enough to not skip when listening.
  9. Trip Advisors Best Amusement Parks in The Wirld-2021

    Cedar Point is my sentimental favorite. Beautiful positioning on Lake Erie.Though I can´t intelligently rate the park´s attractions as it´s been too long since I last visited.
  10. Strong country..

    I can hear that too, Matt...now that you mentioned it.
  11. Deep Tracks - Eric Carmen

    A masterpiece of a pop album. Eric was at his melodic peak when he wrote that album.
  12. Deep Tracks - Eric Carmen

    Nice thread. The live version from The Midnight Special of TRR is awesome, the studio version just great. My pick for deep cut is My Girl. Better than the BB's WIBN, and God only knows. A brilliant upbeat pop masterpiece right up there with Love Grows and Beach Baby. IMHO of course.
  13. Trip Advisors Top Hotel In The World-2021

    True. When I asked each hotel the reason, I got the same answer from all of them: that I'm bad for business. That every time I hang out at the pools, and the female guests see me sunbathing, they commence to throwing rocks at their husbands. Which the marketing depts believe is not good for customer retention. It's why the hotel industry markets to guys like Lew. Oh well... : )
  14. Strong country..

    A shout out to LC if you ever read this post: While they're folk, not country ( it's close enough )....I'm listening to the John and Mary album you recommended and it's wall to wall high quality, well produced, but still organic stuff. Great find for me, thanks to you. James
  15. Best song released since 2000?

    Today I have to go with this one. Out of this world great:
