  1. Hi to everyone from far away and long ago.
    Still here I am, Larisa Pokotilenko from the Black Sea Coast, Crimea.
    After several years of useless tries to login using my old account (it was created by my Twitter account), I finally decided to create a new one.
    I don't know why it is unavailable though my Twitter account is active and I can log in Twitter.
    Still remain a devoted The Raspberries and Eric Carmen fan.
    Missed you all the time (James from Panama especially).

    I never forgot you, my dear friends,  and How It Used To Be in those happy years we talked together here.

    Yours sincerely,

  2. My dear friends, thank you for your greetings for my Birthday.

    It means so much to me.

    James, unfortunately, I almost lost interest for creating videos because I created all the simple things that I could but I have no time to make something complicated. My autist son and my work takes all my time. I was dreaming before but now I returned back to real life.

  3. No one could read his FAREWELL message in "Lazarus" clip. Just only guesses. But most of all everybody believed this is just another game he used to play changing the rules, stages, costumes and  themes. Current theme he choose was too dark and full of mystery. But only now its meaning is understood. 

    You have no idea how much David is loved in Russia and Ukraine and all post-Soviet countries. His fans are orphaned now. They bring flowers and lit the candles near the British Consulate today in Moscow, St. Petersburg, other cities.






    Hope David could see the clip that his Russian and Ukrainian fans made for his 69'th Birthday.


    Russia and Soviet Union will love Ziggy Stardust forever. He is not dead. He returned back to Mars.

  4. Is it possible James? I've been thinking of you today morning suddenly! I remember once I complained that I force myself to leave my cosy home and go outside to the cold darkness at 6:45 am and you give me advice to listen "Sunrise" to make it easy. It really helps! Thank you.

    When Rock Was King


    Jimi Jamison


    A yellowed eight by ten in a ragged press kit folder
    A tattered poster hanging on my bedroom wall
    A snakeskin jacket in the back row of my closet
    I can hear the Echoes as the music rocks the hall
    A bygone day in its Grandeur and its Glory
    The scent of illegal incense in the Air
    Everyone i know has at least a few good stories
    But if you recall the eighties - were you really there?

    Hop aboard this Laser Beam - it's eighties on my Time Machine
    When rock was King
    Zeppelin dropped the Wrecking Ball
    Loverboy would lead the call - to keep rocking
    These times are taller than the tale
    You can't exaggerate the power and the scale
    When rock was king

    Styx would rock the paradise - Survivor saw with tiger's eye
    When rock was king
    Motley Crue and Toto too - Boston - Kansas and Mr. Mister
    We lived the Dream
    Even though eighties are a Triumph come and gone
    The tenors of these times are singing strong
    When rock was king

    When AC/DC rock the sheds
    Angus would take control
    Ann Wilson left the house in shreds - with Heart
    Stopping rock and roll
    When rock was our religion
    Big dreams - big hairs - big visions

    Quiet Riot felt the Noise - 38 Special were wild-eyed boys
    When rock was king
    Surrendering to the Cheap Trick - with Reo and Aerosmith
    When got our Wings
    So climb aboard the Starship - Rainbow bound
    This Journey's come full Circle to the sound
    When rock was king - when rock was king - when rock was king

    Everything old is new again - when rock was king
    Everything new is old again - when rock was king

  6. Once my BF brought something heavy in bag on Valentine’s for me. When I asked him what can it be he replied that this is my Valentine's card. But it was 3 kg weight. I wondered and when I came back home and started to unpack it removing  several  layers or cover  I found there 3 liters tin with black olives wrapped with big Valentine’s card around. 


    Another time he brought a little box saying that there is an additional head for the satellite dish (it was really original satellite dish head box) and I need to find instructions in the Internet for installation and must install it by myself on my roof))))) I started to rebel but haha olives was there again. I love olives, black and green both.

  7. James,
    Andrea’s video is cool for sure.
    But I did not mean to make «pretty cool» video this time, the live video is fine and there’s nothing to add.
    The goals was completely different. I did replace a little noisy audio of original video with remastered soundtrack of Essential album.
