  1. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down -- The Band
  2. I haven't listened to this record in a while, but I have it. I was a big Extreme/Nuno Bettencourt fan back in the day. I also liked Pornograffiti a lot. Get the Funk Out, He-Man Woman Hater, Suzie, etc.
  3. I like Elvis doing Blue Christmas. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUyuGFoiWJ0
  4. I believe the DSM-III calls it Major Depressive Disorder. But I might go along with calling it No Quarter disease. Depression gives no quarter, that's for sure. Totally agree.
  5. I LOVE this! I could see myself running around behind my husband pushing the "Listen" and "Tell Truth" buttons all the time!
  6. Magic Carpet Ride - Steppenwolf
  7. I have a 28 year old son who never cooks (and doesn't want to), and a 26 year old son who really likes to cook. They grew up under the same roof with the same parents (and both my husband and I cook). Go figure. So I guess it's just a personality thing. I wish I could get my older son cooking, then I wouldn't worry about his possible lack of proper nutrition.
  8. The Wind Cries Mary - Jimi Hendrix
  9. I had this discussion with my oldest son, who turned me on to the book in the first place. He is a Rushdie fan and liked the book, but he's not sure if it really deserves all the critical acclaim it received. I think yes, it does. For me, it was one of those novels that just pulled me in and I couldn't read it fast enough. It's both historical and utterly magical. I think Rushdie is brilliant.
  10. I recently finished Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie, which I absolutely loved. Now I'm reading The Satanic Verses.
  11. Simple Man - (two Lynyrd Skynyrd songs in a row for me)
  12. It's a Wonderful Life -- I cry every time I see it. I love Jimmy Stewart.
  13. Don't Ask Me No Questions - Lynyrd Skynyrd
  14. I heard about Irreversible, although I haven't watched it yet. The newspaper review I read said the same thing, that it's extremely violent and shocking. I can't decide whether or not I want to watch it. One movie I watched recently that disturbed me was Bug with Ashley Judd. Definitely not her typical role. It's not really violent or gory, but it was mentally disturbing. It stuck with me and bothered me afterwards. Also, I found Deliverance disturbing. Maybe that was because I got stuck watching it with my father.
  15. I would love to see the 3Js tour with a new singer performing new material.
