  1. How about the woman who wrote the Harry Potter books? How about The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, Bill Gates, Jethro Tull? Please go apply for a job on Monday, it will take your mind off of all this soap opera nonsense.
  2. I sent Joel a long PM explaining myself. Maybe it was the wrong Joel.
  3. Joel, Congratulation on your daughters wedding. Remember this is her day. Regards, JT
  4. Thanks for the explanation.
  5. What is the purpose of giving your son a car? Anything OTHER than for driving back and forth to college is a mistake. My advice is to charge your son a nominal amount of money for the car, somewhere between $500.00 and $1000.00. He'll be more apt to take care of the car AND will learn a lesson that will last a lifetime. Plus, he won't expect you to always be buying him stuff.
  6. Jethro Tull says, that's an inside thought.
  7. Removed due to redundantcy...
  8. Jethro Tull's prediction is failure.
  9. My co-worker is from India. She recently told me she hits her 10 year old son when he misbehaves. I felt really uncomfortable as she was telling me this. She is expecting her second child in September. According to my wife (she's a teacher), people from certain cultures (Africa for one) do not hesitate to hit their kids. I was NEVER hit by my parents.
  10. Jethro Tull's 2nd LP Stand Up is nothing short of spectacular. Buy it.
  11. There have been two deaths at this years festival. Google it.
  12. What it boils down to is, do you want to play the game or not? I played the game, sold out to the man and have been rewarded. I've made my money. Although I have several years to retirement, in my current financial state I should have a good retirement. Hopefully my health cooperates. That all being said, if I decided at a young age NOT to play the game, I can't say I would be any happier.

    High School

    What a class act. Scum bag might be more appropriate than whore. One would think after infecting a couple, word would get out and everybody would stay away from him. Just sleeping with 30 girls in one semester is quite an accomplishment. He must have had something to offer.

    High School

    Graduated in the early 70's, a white middle-class community. Not a good experience for me. Anti-semitism and just a general bad environment. Lot's of kids smoking, taking drugs, drinking and I suspect bad home lives. They took out their frustrations on unpopular classmates. A lot of the smoking, drinking, etc started in 8th and 9th grade. I never had a drink of alcohol until my senior year. Oddly enough, I had a fair number of acquaintances, but few close friends. I was one of the younger members of my class. It's only in recent years that I realized how the age difference may have had an impact on how I dealt with things and visa versa. These days, I'm in touch with a lot of people from high school. I've managed to maintain a healthy weight and appearence, be one of the more successful and became financially secure. (Unlike a lot of them.) Little Billy by The Who Little Billy was the fattest kid in his class Always the last in line All the other little kids would laugh at him Said he'd die before his time Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha Little Billy didn't mind Most of the kids smoke cigarettes Just to prove that they were cool The teacher didn't know about the children's games And Billy always followed the rules Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha Little Billy didn't mind Billy was big on the outside But there's an even bigger man inside Ten million cigarettes burning every day And Billy's still doing fine Now Billy and his classmates are middle-aged With children of their own Their smoking games are reality now And cancer's seed is sown Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha Little Billy's didn't mind Most of them smoke maybe 40 a day A habit Billy doesn't share One by one they're passing away Leaving orphans to Billy's care Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha Little Billy doesn't mind Ha ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha Little Billy's doing fine
  15. Don't even get me started on this topic!! Well, I'll tell one story. A couple of months ago I was getting my hair cut. The guy cutting my hair took a call on his cell phone, stopped cutting my hair and proceeded to give directions to the shop to a friend of his. I was patient, but could tell the friend was having trouble understanding how to get to the shop. I ripped the guy a new a-hole in front of his boss, co-workers and store patrons.
  16. My father-in-law has a narcissistic personality disorder. My sister-in-law has a narcissistic personality disorder. My deceased mother-in-law suffered from depression. My brother-in-law suffers from depression. Father-in-law is currently going through a Narcissistic rage and taking it out on my wife. Did you know that children often take characteristic of their parents and exaggerate them? Wish me luck.
  17. Crap!! I'm losing a lot of money tonight. I picked the Sabres to win the Cup this year. They are stinking up the joint tonight.
  18. I believe the shows are with an orchestra. I'd love to see them again, but I'm probably going to pass.
  19. I'm digging the free 21 song SWSX sampler I recently downloaded from ITUNES.
  20. FWIW, the new R.E.M. release was panned by The Washington Post. The main gripe is that every release since the departure of Berry is interchangeable. I won't buy the collection, but I do have two free songs courtesy of ITUNES (uBerlin) and Starbuck's (Oh My Heart). I've always liked the band and own about 4-5 other full releases.
  21. I've been watching a lot of Leo Kottke on youtube. This guy is so awesome. P.S. - I enjoyed that Doobie Brothers video.
  22. I get the sense you are intent on starting a fight with me. I understand you idolize these artists and are sensitive to criticism. I merely expressed my opinion. You don't have to try to poke holes in everything I say and imply that I don't know how to express my opinion. I think I was pretty clear.
  23. Cool Willy is playing a Guild. It wasn't apparent until the close-up of the sound-hole at around 4:30.
