I was a little down when the old site was wiped, but alas all things (good and bad) do eventually end someday. Anyway on the way home I drove past a Buddah on my neighbor's lawn, and thought about the smiling Hoti, and how much a good attitude really DOES determine ones reality. SO... with that in mind, I started humming a song I've always liked.... it won an award I think...

Bummer I couldn't find the original from the movie (loveliest MTV ever) but I like my nerds too, so this is almost as fun.

And tonight, a Beatles song started bopping around my head during my walk. I've always liked the harmonies in this actually..... there is much to be said for that British invasion era.

Ghostie posted this, thank you, and it should be reposted...

so to all the nerds at home watching the telly or the computer on a Friday night, have a good evening. Smile

Hey that's a lot of fun! Good remix extended version.... haven't heard that too much. And appro-poe. I notice the color of Justin's eyes got remixed in one of the photos too. Go figure!

Yeah people haven't noticed yet that the videos now embed automatically .... graphics will too, but not easily. You have to clip and paste the URL to the smiley faces on the back edit, then plug in the URL of the graphic you wish to post. Then paste in the whole shebang.

That might blow a few minds.... but I see you managed, BSFA.... ;)

Onward with the evening chores. I think we'll do just fine here.

PS I'm really not much for rock n roll, Zombies were ok but not THAT ok.... glad for those who enjoyed them. I feel like a Zombie myself sometimes....

Oh I thought that it was the ORIGINAL spin they gave to that track--and that it aired on TV that year...maybe I'm wrong...but it could indeed pass for a remix-if there ever was a decent remix of it-this would definitely be it Laugh

OooOOoo Bose headphones.... I am not worthy

I was thinking sphinx-ter.....Wink

Heck for all I know that version of "Story " is the original, but it's not the one I'm used to. I like "different" ... it's rougher, more organic.

I just watched the infamous proposal in Cincinnati. It made me cry. Now, I'll go back to SOTWS - which, with one dose of serendipity mixed with another dose of inspiration, was wrested from my still defunct computer. Yay.

I like Whitesnake, too. My voice is about the same as their lead singer's - though I recently got a thumbs-up when I was singing with the Bee Gees in a traffic jam. You'll be glad to know I didn't have a cow over it, even if he was Australian.

Ahh, Coverdale, although I thought that was Alice or Iggy for a minute, he-he.
leslee, you ker-ack me up!! lolol

pheonix - you minx!
when I think of you in that fashion it is more by way of the definition of an impudent young woman. not "being catty". YOU, I do not recognize as being catty....and I will stop there. Cool
I will try to find particularly super Coverdale vid looking very dashing singing one of his Page collaborations.

Can somebody provide a different instruction pretty please? Part of my brain stayed home today and needs kindy-garden level help. Laugh
Specifically, what's the "clip and paste the URL to the smiley faces on the back edit"?

hmmm what is we are trying to solve besides additions, specifically? Maybe I can piggyback on Lunas suggestion?Smile

now, ahem...{drumroll} 10+8=18 (I really don't understand the heartburn over the simple math cues fussed about on a different thread--my advice is: if you know how to add, then just goooo with the flow and prove it Laugh)

Ppoo! How are you?Laugh
Okay thanksWink Ah yes - Coverdale! You know I didn't realize until last year that he was also lead singer for Deep Purple in their latter days...but that kid has sure come a looooonnnnng way too hasn't he, babeh??Smile Yeah we "sure know where he's been" too but I don't think anyone is really supposed to know exactly "where they are going" to end up because that would spoil the journey! But "I sure do" love that voice--mmm mmm MMMM!!Laugh (oh yes I love Justboy's voice too --- but that's beside the point, here - I'm glorifying/recognizing other great stuff here as well Wink)

taking a few steps backward into time here...

~ did not know Coverdale was in DP.
Oh! The great bands that have happened through time!!
Here is something that blows me away.
I have been binging on Mandalaband's The Eye Of Wendor on long drives: makes my rides to Colonial Williamsburg (VA) via the bucolic back-roads truly magical. Anyway, I follow the creator David Rohl who dropped out of that venture for a number of years to go DEEP into his passion for Egyptology but who later revived Mandalaband and created two more parts (albums)
I love this video, England's Heart and Soul, because of the palpable joy sensed in the musicians as this beautiful composition is played and the guitar work of Troy Doneckley which takes off around 3:13. It's slow and mellow until then and then it takes off into something transcending.

If the link doesn't do it for you find it on youtube: Mandalaband, England's Heart and Soul

I always loved this one-brings back teenage memories of course when I was not going anywhere but was totally busting to do so...

so what were you guys and gals doing when this one came out? 1973? Did you like this one? Memory lane musings....c'mon now spill it right here, my little lovelies Wink

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....9WFi3epgA4

My father is a doctor, he's a familiy man
My mother works for charity whenever she can
And they're both good clean Americans who abide by the law
And they both stick up for liberty and they both support the war.
My happiness was paid for when they laid their money down
For summers in a summercamp and winters in the town
My future in the system was talked about and planned

Laugh But I gave it up for music and the Free Electric Band. Laugh

I went to school in handwashed shirts with neatly oiled hair
And the school was big and newly built and filled with light and air
And the teacher taught us values that we had to learn to keep
And they clipped the ear of many idle kid who went to sleep.
Till my father organised for me a college in the east
But I went to California for the sunshine and the beach
My parents and my lecturers could never understand

Laugh Why I gave it up for music and the Free electric band. Laugh

Well they used to sit and speculate upon their son's career
A lawyer or a docter or a civil engineer
Just give me bread and water, put a guitar in my hand

Laugh 'Cos all I need is music and the Free Electric Band. Laugh

My father sent me money and I spent it very fast
On a girl I met in Berkley in a social science class
Yes and we learned about her body but her mind we didn't know
Until deep routed attitudes and morals began to show
She wanted to get married even though she never said
And I knew her well enough by now to see inside her head
She'd settle for suburbia and a little patch of land

LaughLaughLaugh So I gave her up for music and the Free Electric Band. LaughLaughLaugh

Oooh the Free Electric Band.
shaladah badup dup dee dee dee with Free Electric Band.
shaladah badup dup dee dee dee with Free Electric Band.
shaladah badup dup dee dee dee with Free Electric Band.
shaladah badup dup dee dee dee with Free Electric Band.
shaladah badup dup dee dee dee with Free Electric Band.

my perennial favorite!Smile

Everyone tells me if I survive
Sooner or later help will arrive
Everyone says the sun's gonna shine
Sooner or later that's a long time

They tell me not to worry
Don't be in a hurry
Everything's gonna be great

They tell me I should slow up
Take my time and grow up
But sooner or later's too late
Sooner or later's too late

Maybe tomorrow maybe next year
Sooner or later love will appear
Lovin's a pleasure waiting is rough
Sooner or later ain't soon enough

They tell me not to worry
Don't be in a hurry
Everything's gonna be great

They tell me I should slow up
Take my time and grow up
But sooner or later's too late
Sooner or later's too late

Wow I had never thought about who did the theme to *Never Ending Story*. that was the first movie my son sat all the way through, I think he was about 4 or 5. He loved that movie, still does. Imagine; that came out of the disco era.... pretty song. In fact I ran over and posted that video on his FB.

Thanks for the Mandalaband vibes. I remember another Moody fan and I playing that on the way to a Tahoe weekend long ago, and we came into South Shore to this processional music, it was very cool. Those were good days. That whole album is really good, very under rated. Ah, blessed Albion...

Thank you all for the nice selections this morning!
