  9:09am TVP:

I remember this years ago at a Rutgers basketball game: at the time when the game got to the Under-4 minutes media timeout, the band would play Final Countdown, only this time, they didn't for some reason. Which resulted in two or three dudes in the student section repeatedly chanting "Fi-nal Count-down! Fi-nal Count-down!" to no avail.

seems to be a polarizing tune

That time Nick the Bard did "Africa" for three hours - www.wfmu.org...
  9:29am ?:

Awful.

Had to click through the presets on the little digital radio in the kitchen to see if my wife had mistakenly put on 101 or 106.7 Lite FM. Such is this gag fest.

By far, and itโ€™s not even close, the 80โ€™s were in every way the worst decade of popular music during the 20th century.

Donโ€™t even get me started on the cultural aspects as they regard politics, pop culture, fashion, etc.

Thank god for KCR.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35am mariano:

?: I dunno, I think the 90s trump the 80s as far as being the worst decade for mainstream pop. I rewatched almost all of Beavis & Butthead, videos and all, not too long ago, and one of the things that struck me the most is how many god-awful one-hit Nirvana ripoffs were running around MTV in those days. And let's not forget the scourge of acid jazz.

my task was asking the undercover police mingling ("snatch squad") if they were in fact Police..
Technically - they must respond honestly if you ask: "Excuse me, are you an NYPD police officer?" 2 said yes but one got super hostile... I gave him my name but he refused to answer ... I told the uniformed commander that that guy needs to go back to the Academy because he clearly does not know the law ..
Ps ... I gave my real name but, you can give a false name to NYPD, but do not ever lie to Feds (FBI, Secret Service, etc) That is a Federal Offense and can lead to real jail time..

OTOH he LOVED devouring any number of house mice, wood mice, voles, and sparrows (and sharing with Mommy). We'd get up (during my stretch at home after my last degree) and Mom would find various bits placed lovingly near the coffee maker (which he knew was the first thing that the first sentient adult in the house on any given morning would go for) but I digress.

@Stanley dying cars are the WORST. The constant repairs are death by a thousand cuts.

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:38am Threemoons ๐ŸŒ›๐ŸŒ•๐ŸŒœ:

Or, per the late, great, Terry Pratchett: โ€œThe reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money.

Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.

But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that'd still be keeping his feet dry in ten years' time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.

This was the Captain Samuel Vimes 'Boots' theory of socioeconomic unfairness.โ€

Threemoons - the engine is pretty dinky. Sixteen years of salt treated roads have corroded the springs. I got it seven years old with 20k on the clock (one old lady owner) and have used it lightly since. Scratched up a bit but that's city living for ya.

@captain I mean my old Buick got rear-ended by a delivery truck and the trunk got mashed all the way into the back seat. Could NOT get a total ruling. They stretched out the metal, did a shitty job replacing the lights housings with some kind of fiberglass garbage (original body was steel which is why I wasn't hurt), did a shit job on the rear axle and rear alignment which ate up my tires twice until I had my Mom's mechanic do a proper alignment job back up by her in Rockland County (there was a pair of brothers who did ALL of the work for all of the broke teachers up there back in the day), and they never really DID fix the circuitry properly for my brake lights and turn signals (had to have a friend do re-wiring for me and put the proper fuses in--repair shop just jammed in whatever they had handy to fob the car back on me).

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am mariano:

I didn't know "Sail Away" was about that. It's like "Big Rock Candy Mountain": originally about a hobo trying to lure a young man onto a box car so he could, uh, importune him, then it got bowdlerized to be a children's song. Originally it was about cigarette trees and rivers of whiskey.

Christopher E Raad: Yeah, Athena and Eminence Front (especially the soundcheck version they used for the MTV video) are favorites of mine too. I'm with you on a lot of their 70s stuff, never liked their prog turn too much. Everything up to The Who Sell Out is pure gold in my book though.
