  1. Well, I'll never get arrested for being a ZZ Top fan. Of all the band's hits, only La Grange grabbed me -- and that was only because I thought the beginning sounded as though Lee Marvin was the vocalist. ZZ Top Performing "La Grange" on The Howard Stern Show
  2. This toe-tapper was in the singles' collection of one of my siblings. I later acquired it; indeed I still have the 45.
  3. Whatta coinkydink! I had been thinking about offering some Chet Atkins. Although both my parents were Jazz lovers, my father's musical tastes were a tad more expansive. Among his (comparatively) meager collection of records was Christmas with Chet Atkins.
  4. NoShear, Thank you for the clip from The Omega Man. I was trying to i.d. the make of the car that Robert Neville (Charlton Heston) was driving. According to YouTube commenters, it's a Pontiac Catalina. Those were the days . . . for stylish, distinctive looking American cars. Modern US cars are, by comparison, aesthetically dull and stylistically unappealing, as far as I'm concerned. My drive through downtown L.A., blasting John Lennon's and Yoko Ono's Woman is the N-word* of the World occurred about eleven years before I actually worked downtown -- for an accounting firm at
  5. Allhallowsday, I don't know if there was something specific that you were linking to on eBay, but I, for one, greatly appreciate seeing the tantalizing pinups of Dusty Anderson and Anne Nagel. Halloween treats indeed!
  6. Ohhhhhhhh, Man! Another Millicent E. Farquarh hipster! I thought I was the only one, Man! Groovy! And you laid on us her underground classic, Ode to a Hemorrhoid (Greenwich Village 1962). Far out! You really swing, Tar Heel Daddy!
  7. I too grew up in a multicultural city: Los Angeles. In high school, I took Spanish. In retrospect, I would have taken Chinese, had it been offered. Donde esta el cuarto de bano? while a useful question only gets you so far* in a world where China is a rising economy and superpower. A person can grow up in a multicultural environment and not be fluent (intelligently and articulately speak, read, and write) in the languages within that environment. Again, I give major props to The Multilingual and especially immigrants who have the pluck, determination, and courage to migrate to a
  8. Whoa! What's this jazz about missing toes? I don't know what you been smokin', Dad, but like, lay it on me and pass it over here. Last time I looked, my man Freddie had all his dactyls -- like, to the tune of six. More than six phalanges. Whew! That's a hassle, Man! Too much toejam, Sam! Too much toejam!
  9. . . . and two steps away from being a vampire beat poetess!
  10. Hypersensitive and apoplectic reactions about The Grammar Police in 3, 2, 1 . . . But, not from me. You are absolutely correct, LuckyDan. I've learned to resist the almost overpowering compulsion to correct someone's grammar, spelling, and syntax. Sometimes grammatical gaffes are committed by folks for whom English is not their native tongue. Being abysmally monolingual myself, I have nothing but awe and the utmost respect for folks who are multilingual. After being humbled by translation applications such as Babelfish and getting tripped up by awkward, sometimes hilarious, and alway
  11. I, for one, detest Ignore and Block features. in cyberspace forums. I never use them. Similar to Sepiatone, I just ignore folks who are not worthy of my time and attention. I cannot help but wonder how people who regularly use Ignore/Block/Cancel features (childish, IMO) function in real life when they encounter people with whom they disagree or people who get on their nerves. I'm also at an age in life, and at psychological and emotional stages, when I no longer let forum debates/wars bother me. I'm not wasting even precious milliseconds of my life on pointless, endless donnybrooks
  12. I enjoy Creation of the Humanoids, a low-budget but above-average Science-Fiction drama distinguished by its theme of prejudice and discrimination. More significant, it is the final movie for Jack P. Pierce, the "Maker of Monsters" during Universal Pictures' Golden Age of Horror Films.
  13. Moe Howard, Thank you! According to the Web, POP had a relatively brief existence, 1958 to 1967. So I was a preteen when I visited it. The only memory of it that I have is King Neptune. Visitors would enter POP by going "underwater" and walking through Neptune's Kingdom, eventually encountering The King himself. For a small child, the experience was not a little bit frightening -- at least for me. Sad that POP had such a short, troubled run. Growing up in L.A. during the 1960s, residents were blessed with several thrilling amusement parks, besides "The Magic Kingdom." My parents
