So, I probably heard it as a baby :)
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 9/16/19 10:44am Joe McG:

At that point in their career, they were so big that they could've recorded a tribute to Satan (which I guess "Crazy Horses" sort of is - the evils of the world, anyway) and it would've been a hit.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 9/16/19 10:44am PKNY:

I was gonna say, which came first: Parliament's "Red Hot Mama" or "Crazy Horses", but it looks like Parliament was first. A part of me hopes the Osmonds were secretly down with Parliament's Invictus records and decided to rip them off.

Thanks, melinda. Some things DO last a long time in our minds.

my 6th grade teacher, Mrs.Melvin, caught me drawing. she smiled and said i need to study. she caught me many times and never actually stopped me from drawing. eventually she asked if she could have some of my drawings.

Joe, as far as I can tell it was a lesson well learned and you've done a great job using that knowledge for the betterment of the world.

This has been perfect, thanks, Joe!

I think one of most offensive things a teacher ever did to me was actually throwing away a book that I was reading during class. I understand taking it away but throwing it away. Never trust a teacher who disrepects books and I never did.

the book should've been taken back out and the contents of the trash can dumped over the teacher's head.
...that wouldn't get you into more trouble, would it?

The Daniel Johnston WFMU call that's linked on the website right now is definitely worth listening to

I had to smile when the headmaster caned me for ringing the fire alarms (it was after skool ended), and said 'this is going to hurt me more than you'.
