    Welcome Back, Dude

    I was gone for six months and for a nano second I thought it might be for me. But only for a second. I would never get such a splash as that. I am like Charlie Brown. Nobody likes me. Wah !!! But that's okay. At least I don't have to deal with Lucy Van Pelt. Uh oh, here she comes with a scowl. AAUUUUGH ! good grief

    You mean Who's Next. That's one of my favorite releases of their's, and one of my favorite rock albums of all time. Every song on it is a keeper. My personal favorite is "Bargain". But I don't mind "Squeeze Box", either, although it's not one of my favorites from them.

    Yeah, but you're in NY, just as James is in California. Your states are going Blue regardless of who the candidate is. I'm in Florida, one of the true battleground states, and from what I've seen/heard, any Dem candidate has a tough road ahead to beat Trump here.

    I Just Watched...

    Living Venus (1961) - 4/10 Schlock meister Herschell Gordon Lewis made his feature directing debut with this adults-only drama. William Kerwin, who would later show up in several of Gordon's other efforts, stars as a Hugh Hefner-esque magazine editor who conceives of a men's magazine featuring nude models, to be named Pagan. His first major layout features model Danica D'Hondt as the "Living Venus", you know, so it's classy and artsy and stuff. Have I mentioned that the chief photographer is played by Harvey Korman in his debut? There's only a small bit of nudity, but enough to make this unplayable in most theaters of the day. However, it did well enough that Gordon and frequent producing partner David F. Friedman followed this with a string of nudie flicks that raked in the grindhouse dough with the trenchcoat crowd, before eventually changing genres and adding graphic gore to horror films in Blood Feast (1963).

    a new hate target for the left: Kate Smith

    You may be too young to remember Eddie Fisher. Before he married Elizabeth Taylor and had all that controversy, he was the top pop singer in the mid-1950s. His Idol was Al Jolson and he even named one of his daughters Jolie. He sang pop but he also sang an awful lot of Al Jolson's repertoire. Along with Judy Garland and Sammy Davis jr., He sang a lot of mammy songs. One of the top Al Jolson songs was a song called " Rockabye ". *An through the sixties Eddie got a lot of pushback about some of the lyrics. But he continued singing the song and substituted some of the lyrics, which some people felt were the most offensive. Another one of my favorite singers is Jack Jones. His biggest hit was an early 60s song called "Wives and Lovers" that many feminists today consider to be sexist. It was written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Every time he sings that now he makes some kind of a mea culpa or apology with it, but he goes on singing it because it was his biggest hit. I'm sure I'll think of some other examples later, but as life goes on things change, people have different opinions and different viewpoints. And that's just kind of the way it is. BTW-- Do you remember that "Sergeant Pepper's" song where the guy admits beating his woman but he doesn't do it anymore? Well, as far as that's concerned I never liked that song. LOL

    No I didn't think Trump would win. Yea, my prediction are often incorrect. So what. What I want in 2020 is for Trump to be defeated. I believe a long drawn out failed impeachment attempt only helps Trump. I could be wrong again. Either way, Pelosi gets it which is why she issued that statement.
