feeling like las vegas in northern nj! all we need is free drinks at the tables and a bunch of elvii.
When we were kids, we camped at a walled in campground in Vegas. We had never been so hot. An ice cream truck jingled "Little Brown Jug" as it trolled through the streets of the adjacent neighborhood. We pedalled our bikes with training wheels for all we were worth, kicking up dust, but never found a way through the wall to the teasing tune. Mouths and faces full of dust, heads aching from the sun, score one for the desert.
Thursday - Clear. High of 110F. Winds from the SW at 5 to 10 mph shifting to the WNW in the afternoon. ---- Still, I'll take it over heat with humidity. Those in wet lands are the heroes of summer.
Heya Charlie!... here for the beginning at least - may have to run out for a bit
Katya, are you in Tucson? I spent some time there at Davis-Monthan. Lots of fun.
Yeah, Carmichael. All that pavement at DM, it's a wonder you folks can keep it together out there. Every time we go to an airshow, I see people drop from heat. Congrats on surviving it -- and in uniform no less!
That video foresaw the whole Pomplamoose interweb video phenomenon.
Right on the Mael. Paul at his most charming in that one.
Holly in NC:
The video is brilliant! an all time fave http://youtu.be/cDBkySeyiDo
"..McCartney identified characters that were impersonations of specific artists: Hank Marvin (guitarist from The Shadows), Ron Mael of Sparks (keyboards), and a 'Beatlemania-era' version of himself. While others such as author Fred Bronson have suggested that there are other identifiable impersonations in the video, such as Andy MacKay, Frank Zappa and Neil Young, McCartney said the other roles were simply comic relief.." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coming_Up_(song)#Music_video
