Random Thoughts, Too Many Links!)

Ohhh naïve me!

Jo-Jo left his home in Tucson Arizona for some California grass.
-Paul McCartney, Get Back, from the Beatles’ album Let It Be.

I was well into my twenties when it suddenly dawned on me that one does not exactly move to California for rolling fields of green…

My buddy Kevin Walsh informs me that it was Paul Simon solo, not Simon & Garfunkel, who did Slip Sliding Away. Did I Err?

I’ve decided that the Phil Spector Christmas Album beats out the Elvis’ Christmas Album for Greatest Christmas Album of All Time. Considering recent allegations, it’s oddly appropriate that the back cover of the Phil Spector CD has a Snidely Whiplash type of logo in the bottom right corner.

Had a customer come in today looking for The Singing Dogs version of Jingle Bells. That was the first record I ever heard, period! My Uncle Frank played the 45 for us, as well as Be Kind To Your Web-Footed Friends when I was just a wee tyke! The Singing Dogs Jingle Bells can be found on Dr. Demento Presents The Greatest Christmas Novelty CD Of All Time

I like Italics.

Only 9 more shopping Days until LOTR: The Return of the King, and of course only 15 more shopping days until The Return of the King of Kings, if you are religious.

I very reluctantly had to pass on the opportunity to see Bruce Springsteen live Sunday night at the Asbury Park Convention Center the other night. My buddy Tim had a ticket for me for a mere $100.00, and I just could not afford it. Bills, Christmas, Outstanding Debts, Hookers, (Kidding! Kidding, Jeeeeeez!!!) well, to reuse a word from the other night’s blog, Feh!!!

Bruce’s special guests included Southside Johnny, Jon Bon Jovi and Sam Moore. Sam Moore!!! Damn, missed a chance to see a real legend there. Regrets are just piling up the more I hear about this show. Oh well! My sister Judy got the ticket instead, and she had a blast!

I think I’ve figured out how to post pictures on this blog, so I may as well go with a dopey one! Here’s a shot from a recent Civil War reenactment I did.

Too Big, Too Big!!! Does anyone know how to adjust the size? Watta revoltin’ development, nobody wants to see me that big!!!

Hmmm, shall I post another classic grooism tomorrow? I think I shall!!!

Add your own comments, I’d love to hear from you!
