I love you. That line is from "Airplane!"
But will anyone find the Brave New World reference?
Well, I can guarantee you it won't be me!
I slept through that book.
LOVED that movie.
Brave New World? eh I'm too busy torturing people on why Eddie Van Halen Is Not (nor will ever be) Eric Clapton. this also works in reverse or so I'm told.
Just wait til I start on you about channeling your inner Pink Floyd. It's dying to get out don'tchaknow.
I'm combatting stress with Killians.
fucking typos, fucking grammar, I WANT NUMBERS !!!!!

If Clapton is God, then Van Halen is Odin.
Excuse me, but Lemmy is God, not Clapton.
You two work this out amongst yourselves.
Okay, I'm with you on Unknown Hinson, but you lose me at Metalhead. Or pretty much any of the bands that Lemmy has played for.
I find it bizarre to "rate" any musician against each other, across genres or time or whatever, once you get to a certain skill level. How the hell can you compare?
Of course, what do I know? Elvis Costello holds the most space in my head, in terms of listening hours. And I adore him for his passion for music and musical styles. And clever lyrics. And because he has a limited vocal range, but didn't let that stop him.
I agree: Apples and Oranges, baby.
And I like EC, too. My favorite lyric of his is from "Watching The Detectives", "she's filing her nails while they're dragging the lake."
But Steph is wrong. ;)
ps: Unknown comes to Jammin' Java in Vienna about once a year. I'll keep you posted.
Oh, do...our neighbors are fans too.
while I appreciate Lemmy's contributions, I disagree he is qualified to be rated above Mr. Clapton
You are allowed to be wrong every now and again.
You were in my dream the other night. I don't remember the specifics, but it was nice. It felt like a hug. xoxo
thanks for sweet dream thoughts
but it doesn't keep Robin Trower from trumping Lemmy as well
of course, it IS impossible to compare different styles in any fair and impartial way, so I'm willing to forgo that and simply invade your dreams again

Who the hell is Robin Trower?
Never mind. Just hug me.
eh either way. Just a complete difference in styles.
following the music theme and knowing where my tastes are :-)
Brave New World
Iron Maiden - released in May 2000
And I know all the words to all the songs *g*
having perused the pages of many friends entries, it is apparent we are all missing some calming influences in our lives these days
take you for example, stressing about your weight and a diet ... from my perspective, having seen you recently in your pre-garb jeans and such as well as your usual wonderfully piratey attire, I can tell you without hesitation you are, as you have been since I met you, a wonderfully beautiful woman, and an intelligent wonderful person ... that is a dynamic combination intimidating to some, but carried well by you
and no this isn't just some empty compliment ... you are beautiful, you are wonderful ... take it
I'm quite sure you hear this often from those closer to you ... and perhaps you dismiss it as them being nice
so don't go by just that number that seems to freak you out ... go by how you feel ... and replace half of the self criticism with half of the more positive perceptions of others ... the ying and yang
Thank you, that's lovely. (And it was so wonderful to see you. I always feel like that event is like going to a dear friend's wedding. You get to see all sorts of people you haven't seen for a while, but it's always such a brief visit with each.)
It isn't the number, really -- I mean, I feel my best at 180, which is a number that would freak OUT most women my height. I just know that I have ranges -- and when the number is this high, I'm unhappy with the way my body feels. There's a little roll at my waist when I sit down right now that I find distracting and annoying. I have bad knees and bad ankles and all sorts of joint issues -- when I'm carrying 20 pounds above my feel-good weight, everything just HURTS more.
It's thanks to people like you, that I do feel beautiful and attractive and loved. (Although a big old nod to genetics that gave me a near perfect hourglass figure -- a bigger hourglass than most...but still, I seem to maintain that ratio no matter what, which makes me very, very lucky.)
But I do want to feel healthier, more nimble, more flexible, more sleek, for my own sake. And I think part of the reason I shared the struggle, the negative feelings is because so many of us DO seem to be a bad place -- struggling with all sorts of crap.
We're not alone in this. None of us. And that helps, doesn't it?
your figure is a throwback to better times, when it was socially acceptable for women to have curves ... and you make a good point about genetics too
the modern day standard of size zero (women's sizes are f'd up beyond belief these days) being chic is sick if you ask me
taking the weight off to feel better rather than to meet a number on a scale is the healthy approach from my view, and fully understand it from personal experience myself ... the aging process doesn't help either as I pop and crack more than ever now when I get up in the mornings ... so rock on with the feeling better
"And I think part of the reason I shared the struggle, the negative feelings is because so many of us DO seem to be a bad place -- struggling with all sorts of crap.

sharing our various struggles is a form of therapy I suppose ... and much cheaper than scheduling pro shrink time
and it is comforting sometimes to have this expanded on-line family from which to hear different opinions from
"guess I picked the
wrong week to
stop sniffing glue"
I'm actually working on my garden this weekend because it is the last free weekend I have until..oh that's right June! AARRGGHHH...
Remember, you can go on the cider diet...10 ciders a day is still under the calorie limit to lose weight :-)
