  1. Yes...he was in severe depression. And his brother Bill (oldest sibling, lead singer on 'The Rain, the Park and other things') died the night before Barry's memorial service and many close to the family believe it was from a broken heart. Susan apparently lost everything in her house from Katrina. Fame and tragedy have been hallmarks of the Cowsills.

    He must've consulted that angel from Highway to Heaven. Problem is, he's dead. Not one to seek advice from. Too bad.

    It's about as funny as the diseased blanket's the Indians got and I can make a mockery of anything, I bet you could too. Nothing is sacred.
  4. I've had Laguintas and it is nice. Not available here though. My favorites are West Coast IPA's. Mendicino Brewing Co. makes a good one called White Hawk. http://www.mendobrew.com/brews/white_hawk.html

    Sometimes cold hard facts aren't too cheerful. I'd have had a big smile if I'd found the money though. Would've felt rather giddy actually.
  6. WTF? Is someone's looking up your ass for the planet you came from? It was obviously URANUS !!!!!!!!!
  7. Yes I am. I don't live where they brew any good one's though, I have to find the out of state one's at the finer liquor stores. I'm in the northern South.

    It was because they hadn't told Benito where they'd stashed all the money. The German's never found it either, couldn't get the Jews to talk so they sent them to the gas chambers.
  9. The stock market has dropped ~2000 points since about September 20th. Down, down, down she goes,

    Best I can tell is that they simply don't like Muslim n----r's. Or the color blue. Hmmm..
  11. I hear it in the background, and outside the window. Damn inconvience of parking 3/4 of mile from my house, them fuckin' secret service dudes.
  12. Who here realizes the Partridge Family was completely based on the Cowsill Family ? The Cowsills were the first choice for this program, but their father, their manager, wouldn't have it. He didn't like the business deal replacing his wife with Shirley Jones, who was the Partridge Family matriarch. He was a mean son of a bitch, that took ALL of the family's earnings and squandered it. I went to school with John in 1968-1970, the drummer and got to see the band several times in their heyday. Bob is also a friend of mine. There's is a great musical story, filled with much sadness and musical aclaim. The played their own instruments and were really excellent, given the chance. Barry died in N.O. during hurricane Katrina. I had several friends play a benefit for him in Newport, RI where they were from. Some of their TV appearance c. '68-'73 The Ed Sullivan Show (twice) The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (twice) American Bandstand The Mike Douglas Show The Barbara McNair Show Playboy After Dark Kraft Music Hall Music Scene The Johnny Cash Show
  13. Come on, where is everybody? Don't tell me your watching the debate.
  14. The beer I drank over the weekend. Not bad, but coulda been spunkier.
  15. Ralph Nader knew this exact thing was coming 8 years ago. No one listens to him, he's not a frontrunner. Nader Releases 10-Point Plan to Recover from Financial Crisis Tuesday, September 16, 2008 at 12:00:00 AM RALPH NADER PREDICTED WALL STREET MELTDOWN 8 YEARS AGO Eight years ago, consumer advocate Ralph Nader correctly predicted that the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) were on track to follow the savings and loan industry of the 1980s and 90s into a big financial heap of trouble. Nobody listened, and taxpayers are now at risk of losing tens of billions of dollars. Wall Street is being shaken to its foundation. American International Group Inc., the biggest U.S. insurer by assets, is now teetering on the brink of ruin after suffering losses of $18 billion in the past three quarters, largely due to its sub prime mortgage exposure. "Nader Rips Mae and Mac," declared the Milwaukee Sentinel Journal on June 16, 2000. "Ralph Nader, warning of a potential taxpayer bailout similar to the savings and loan crisis, urged lawmakers to cut government benefits to mortgage-market giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- which he called 'poster children for corporate welfare.'" This year Nader, who is also running for president as an independent, is getting credit for his prescience. http://www.votenader.org/media/2008/09/16/meltdown/
  16. One can always go under the radar, it just depends on how much you have vested in the system that increases difficulty. Consequences only occur when you get caught up in the mess, and that as hard as it may be, can be avoidable. It's not for the blind, but those who can see well enough to live it. Damn right ! Usage taxes are one thing, but income tax is another. Pillow cases are better than institutions anyway. There are investments to be made that never go through banks or financial entities and bring alot higher return with the risk you take. One has to live this lifestyle to make it work, must understand it and embrace it. There really aren't that many out there that do it. Luck is also a factor, but that's with anything. The key is the desire and fortitude to follow one's heart, principles and to recognize your destiny.
  17. Word Magazine readers have been busy building this map showing where iconic album cover photographs were taken. A fun, interactive map ! http://www.wordmagazine.co.uk/album_atlas/FullListing.php Led Zeppelin's entries, Led Zeppelin: Houses of the Holy Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti Led Zeppelin: Led Zeppelin IV Led Zeppelin: Led Zeppelin For instance here's Led Zeppelin 1st album cover location, and you can zoom in, as I've done here for the St. Mark's location of the Physical Graffiti building.
  18. Too bad their legacy is entrenched in Disco. Still not my cuppa tea, but their best material, BY FAR, was in the 1960s. The 70s disco scene was the nadir of their career.
  19. They go to church for the chicks ! Those mormon babes are hotter than one would imagine, don't be misled.
  20. Actually by Headquarters, their 3rd album, they DID do most of the playing and stuff.... The third album issued by The Monkees, Headquarters was their first LP recorded primarily by the four members of the group. After a struggle for creative autonomy, the group was allowed to record by themselves. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headquarters_(album)
  21. There's a band in Salt Lake City names The Jackmormon's. Maybe that's them incognito !
  22. I think Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart played instruments on the Monkees albums and were the producers, weren't they ? Does that count ? Yeah, I just found it.... http://www.tsimon.com/boycehrt.htm ..and The Monkees themselves started helping in producing their own material....Mostly "Headquarters", I believe.
  23. Honestly I never knew. I guess they have a few good apples afterall !! I did always think Donny had a side of him that could party. I just felt that way.
  24. Don't be scared, I'm harmless. Sticks and Stones will break your bones, but words will never hurt you.
