This week’s theme is a suggestion by some person who may or may not be known by the moniker of Rikki-Tikki-Deadly.

You can’t prove anything!!!!!!!

Frankly, when the suggestion was made, I was ashamed of myself that I hadn’t already thought of it myself.  Honestly.

IMHO there are very few things that are as attractive to me than a smrt woman wearing pajamas, and also maybe little white socks.  Oh, those little white socks.

That always was one of my weaknesses.  And maybe she is also all bundled up because it’s cold out.  Or in.  Or whatever.

If she brings me soup?

Or even a shot of freezer vodka.  Well either way, that’s just a BONUS!!!!!

But in all seriousness…. Sometimes, less is more.  If you get my drift.  Leaving something to the imagination is not a bad thing.

But that’s our thing tonight.

PYJAMIES!!!!!!

We’ll get to it in just a bit.

This is the most 70’s thing I’ve seen since that time I crashed my Pinto into a Foghat concert ticket line.

I regret nothing.

yeah right

Our Ford Pinto ran into a yellow retaining pole as we were leaving 10 cent beer night at the Playmore in Milan Illinois.

Foghat played about 8 months later in Davenport.

This all checks out.

My fondest memory of them is a show at the old El ‘N Gee in New London. A skinhead was acting up and my brother threw him over a couch and his friends ran over at the same time I cam running with three of our friends and they stopped on a fucking dime.

This was 20 years ago, when I was still capable of running.

ballsofsteelandfury

A certain Buffalo Bills fan would beg to differ.

Had tickets to their show here next week, but this recovery is going so slow, I’m probably gonna have to bag it.

Second album I ever bought was LZII. First album was From Elvis in Memphis, please forgive me, I was 9 years old and thought Rubberneckin’ was a cool tune.
I still have my Led Zep II album, it looks like someone cut pizza on it. But at the time I bought it, at age 10, (1969), it was awesome. Still is, to be honest.

SonOfSpam

Why the fuck you apologizing for Elvis?

My first purchase was Night at the Opera, and I’m still kinda proud of that.

Viva La Tabula Raza
Viva La Tabula Raza

I was into the 45 rpm records mostly in the late 60s, since I was not even in double digits, age-wise. As cool as Elvis had been, by the late 1960s he was kinda passe, and evolving into the later, Fat Elvis. There was an Elvis movie with Mary Tyler Moore playing a nun, and Rubberneckin was the tune, and I dug the film and bought the album. Also, “In the Ghetto” was a cool if very cheesy tune.

I bought every Queen album from Sheer Heart Attack through Jazz (the tri-fold poster of the nude bicycle race that came with Jazz comment image) is framed and hanging in my living room. It’s sad that the US abandoned Queen in the 80s when Freddy’s bisexuality became widely known of. Queen put out some awesome rock during that time that was totally ignored here due to homophobia.

What were we talking about?

I’m 50+ and my kids started in with the “OK Boomer” shit and my response was that a) I’m Gen X, and b) every OK Boomer is going to cost you $100 off your college tuition.

Saw her at a solo show at a cheesy nightclub here in SA about 20 years ago. She had got fat (so had I, so no casting aspersions on this end), but she was nice and signed an old pic I had of a buddy of mine tonguing a pic of her on the cover of Spin magazine back in 1983 or so in her goldfish bowl tiddy covers while were driving around in Yokosuka, Japan. I sent that signed pic to the same shipmate, fortunately he picked up the mail before his wife.

Horatio Cornblower
Viva La Tabula Raza
Viva La Tabula Raza

Exactly. I’m too drunk and lazy to go and actually find the pic to which I refer and scan and upload it. But we were hot for her back in those days, lemme tell ya.

Kid didn’t even get his drivers license until he was 28. He finally made the drive BY HIMSELF on US 44 from Hartford back to Mansfield MA a couple years ago. He’s definitely a social RETAHD but pegs all the IQ tests and his goal is to solve cancer. How can I do anything but say GO TOMMY. But even his mother, my hot cousin Karen, says she’s sad that her beloved firstborn, poor Tommy is never going to get laid because the idea of even swapping spit with another person just totally grosses him out. He’s a weird one, but if he solves something, I’ll cheer him on.

My Jewish girlfriend and I watched Life of Brian with her parents and her grandmother on Passover one year. Her grandmother thought it was hysterical, her parents not so much. It was my revenge for finding out the previous year at Seder that Jewish brisket was not the same as Texas brisket. It’s fucking pot roast. And I’m sorry, but gefilte fish is fucking cat food.

Maybe it was the infatuation talking but Rock of Ages was one of the funniest goddamn things I’ve ever seen. I wish I had seen it at a Midnight Movie theater with hard liquor and audience participation. Tom Cruise singing “I Want to Know What Love Is” to Malin Ackerman’s ass with all of his acting power is why film exists.

SonOfSpam

You know…that’s true. Tom Cruise fucking GOES FOR IT (which he does in every film) and that would be ok with the right intoxicants.

Horatio Cornblower

Rock of Ages is harmless fun, and I’d watch Julianne Hough do anything short of getting an exorcism involving two fingers jammed up her ass in Davos and…

Did any band ever have a worse follow-up to their one hit than The Romantics? ‘What I Like About You’ was a great tune, and ‘Talking In Your Sleep’ was bad enough to kill careers.

Like The Romantics career. Video was creepy as fuck too.

King Hippo

It was basically the last song of their career, yeah? Insofar as anyone noticed.

Even with all-time great bands, there’s always that one song that doesn’t come off right. I still change the channel when “Spoonman” is on. though I pretty much worship Chris Cornell as my non-FITBAW God.

blaxabbath

The Spaghetti Incident is the worst thing GNR did.

King Hippo

The release of Use Your Illusions I and II was peak rock and roll. Hubris to try doing more after that.

Horatio Cornblower

I can’t argue with Blax about The Spaghetti Incident. That was pure shit. But they had 2 or 3 really great albums before that.

scotchnaut

The Knack begs to differ. “My Sharona” is a great tune that has an incredible solo (starts at 2:40). Their followup was “Good Girls Don’t”.

Horatio Cornblower

I’m not sure I’ve heard ‘Good Girls Don’t’ before. Not a bad tune, until you listen a little more closely and begin to suspect that Gary Glitter wrote the lyrics.

“Michael Morales released a version of “What I Like About You” in 1989, as the follow-up to his hit “Who Do You Give Your Love To”. His version reached number 28 on the Billboard Hot 100, eclipsing the position of the original version.” (The Romantics version, that is). You can imagine which version gets the airplay on classic rock stations here in SA.
Since he’s a San Antonio boy, I favor his version. Totally subjective, yes.

scotchnaut

Billy Squier’s The Stroke” was a big hit. “Rock Me Tonight” (in satin sheets) was not.

Horatio Cornblower

The song was fine, as far as cheesy crap that I will unapologetically crank up in the car, but the video was so laughably bad that it really is blamed for sinking his career.

scotchnaut

I’m not exactly a Billy Squier truther but “Everybody Wants You” was a wicked criticism of the music industry (for its time, within his genre)

SonOfSpam

LOOK HOW BUTCH HE IS WHEN HE TEARS THE TANK TOP!

Agree with you, love the song, cringe at the video. Poor Billy Squier.

This whole kerfuffle led my brain to think “somewhere, there is a dude whose job it is to write click-bait for Q-anon/rightwing survivalist site.”

I really hope that headline is a product of your feverish mind and not a real thing, but I’m afraid it is probably a real thing.

King Hippo

It’s demented enough to be true. I refuse to go into that fever swamp and verify, though.

Current situation: four kids in house, wife is out, I’ve had two tall highballs of Maker’s Mark, at least 4 Miller Lites. Currently listening to Songs for Groovy Children: The Filmore East Concerts (Hendrix.)

What could possibly go wrong?

King Hippo

Mrs. Fozz can’t possibly hold you responsible for sommet that happens after ya pass out. Just common sense.

“An erotic lesbian thriller…”
I’m listening…
“starring Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams…”
The Rachels!? Sorry boys, I’m gonna be busy tonight.

Naturally, I googled this immediately. “86% of people liked this movie.”

They didn’t mention the average viewing time of 7 minutes.

Why should I fuck around being James Bond, mate, when I can check out THAT action?

There’s your barroom debate query – Most Attractive Coupling – Weisz/Craig or Keri Russell/Matthew Rhys

Well, I know I would fuck either Rachel or XXX (my favorite role of his—Layer Cake, pre-Bond). And I’m straight!

What about Keri Russell and Daniel Craig?

That’s right, thinking about box from outside the box!!!

And then there is this. Fucking ay. Sienna Miller.

Shitty pic quality, but you get the idea. If you have not seen Layer Cake, log off right now and go do so. Report back when finished. Fucking awesome flick.

Perfect woman = turns into a six-pack and a sandwich when you are done. (Sorry, that’s a sexist thing that I think I read in Lampoon back in the 70s and has stayed with me all these years despite it’s current political incorrectness, although it may become ok again soon [see my post below]).

You can be as non-PC as you wanna be here. Fuck PC. It’s the most subtle form of censorship our society has ever embraced.

I find it funny that both Klobuchar and Collins were offended by Nadler’s remark about betraying the country if they acquitted the Prez. Goddam, them repubs are more easily offended than any (homosexual ni**er be*ner insert slur name here) at being called a name than I have ever known. Grow a pair, ladies!!! What a bunch of fucking babies.

(as you can probably deduce, being immobilized by foot surgery and confined to quarters has given me more time to follow this cluster fuck than I normally would expend).

I’ve probably already said this on a previous thread, but was too drunk to remember and am too lazy to go back and look (is there a function on this site where I can pull up all my old posts? Fuck if I know). Anyway, it bears repeating:

As an avid reader of history, I always wondered how fucked up it must have been to live day to day in an authoritarian dictatorship. Well, given that the Senate is going to acquit the anthropomorphic overflowing colostomy bag/Russian asset that currently inhabits the White House, and he will then be able to go full steam ahead with getting the election thrown to him by virtue of Russian interference, Republican state legislature gerrymandering, and voter disenfranchisement of everyone who isn’t of pure northern European heritage, I guess I’m going to find out. I’m glad I only have a couple of decades left, maximum, on the planet. COME ON ASTEROID!!!

Yay Republican Patriots, how proud you must be.

I’m glad to hear you are digging them. I bought the latest back in November but am torturing myself and not reading it until a shitty weather weekend. But you are right, we live in similar times.

I am trying to read something in between each volume, to stretch it out. Will be quite sad when I exhaust the full set. Damned good writer.

It’s weird, but even after thirty years and fourteen additional novels, Night Soldiers remains my favorite, and I re-read it at least once a year. I guess because it’s not a short snapshot in time like most of the books, but covers almost 15 years of the protagonist’s life. And seems to have a happy ending (although I’m sure the happy couple were divorced eventually; Bulgarian spy and Jewish princess/department-store heiress does not seem a relationship built for longevity).

I’m openly rooting for the coronavirus to wipe out 95% of the world population.

I read King’s ‘The Stand’ as a book about an ideal future, minus Randall Flagg.

I’d prefer the asteroid, if it hit in Arizona, so I’d have 24 hours or so to watch world die before the cloud of dust reached Texas.
