FUN. — We Are Young on Conan O’Brien.
The parody video from SketchY — We’re Not Young.
What’s on your mind?
g’evening pups — how’s everyone doing tonight?
Hey, Suzanne. Hope you had a sunny and actively mobile day. Good day down here on the coast.
You ARE on FAHR this week gal, but when I hear “We Are Young”, I hear THis.
Loved the Mayall, lord, he’s 79 now. Where’d the time go. Turning Point and Room To Move was just yesterday . . . LeSigh.
Allus Rcc’d, LLN and FDL.
hey dearie – it wasn’t sunny! it was gray and cloudy and great! i wore my fleece hoodie today and enjoyed the day. what did you do today?
Suz, have you ever thought about doing LLN over Skype? Just for giggles.
larue! how’s sac tonight? glad ya liked the mayall last night — that’s one of my favorite benetar songs… and how controversial that video was at the time
tuez! how’s florida tonight? hell no, i’ve got a face made for radio *laughing* besides, that would require i put in my teeth and put down the pipe…
Too funny but I’ve got the same problem. Also, it’s been a long time since I bothered to look human much after 9 p.m.
No, I ain’t young anymore. Sigh
that parody video cracked me up…. 40? hell, i passed that a long long time ago…
Hey, Larue, if you’re still around, did you get to do any festing this summer? Anything coming up this fall?
i almost used the official music video for the post – it does make the parody make more sense but i liked the energy on the conan clip
Yeh baby on Pat B . . . opera range, for a chick rocker, she was also a renegade for her talent in the biz.
Temps now down in the hi to mid 80′s, crops are all green and flowering again, lots of ‘maters and basil and the usual stuff.
Life is good, ma’am, hopin it is for you and yours, too.
Renewed membership this week, some extra funds came thru. Was all guilted about it lapsin since May.
All bettah, now.
OMFG, vid #2 hits home.
its been in the 60′s for two days now — like the switch was flipped from summer to fall yesterday.
that self-guilt can be a real bitch — i’ve fought with her and never won
i’m still debating whether or not i should send it to the 30 something mother of my granddaughter
Hi Dearie, still just barely here.
Yeah, me and mine, we got to do the BIG ONE, for us.
Labor Day Weekend. Strawberry Music Fest, Camp Mather, just outside Yosemite Park at 4,350 ft in the Sierras.
Here’s The Lineup.
We went up the day before, stayed at Evergreen Lodge, buffet, I picked music till 1am. Up at 7, in line for the parade into the fest at 8am.
Had two epic nights till 3am jammin at other camps.
Yeah, we’re both still recuperating.
Thanks, great memories for us, been 3 years since we been there, old friends are new and still friends again, tears, joy, mirth, and more.
That’s been it for this year, skipped a solo fest or two so we could both do this one together. She loved it! Start to finish. It was grand to be there, together, and with all our old friends who live elsewheres.
had this song running through my brain all day today…
Gotta go, best to all . . . and yers.
I’m thinkin’ you might have to be closer to 50 to appreciate it. In your 40s, you are still in denial things are going downhill. A friend of mine once said, but later when sober had no recollection, that when you are 40, you got the world by the balls, at 50, you’ve lost it all.
is kinda what i was thinking… still a little two close to home for her
i do, however, think my 20something would forking love it
i wish it would rain
i think all politicians should have to pass the smell test before they can be placed on the ballot
how wonderful! so glad for you and yours. and much love!
no, no! 50 is bloom again time. After that is just relaxing and enjoying and letting wisdom percolate.
we just get scared that maybe we ain’t that young anymore,
—– of course, that would mean——
I’m kinda lucky in that my dad is still active, witty, and enjoying life at almost 95…. I’m glad that I didn’t start to fade at 50! Instead I went to law school. Ha! Maybe now I’ll go get a Ph.D. …. or open a luncheonette or something. Never give up the excitement…. and interest. I only hope I can outlive the idiots who are still actively trying to destroy my country.
hey bfl — how’s the city beautiful tonight? found out today that he’s is coming to portland in november. betcha the tix are way way way outta my price range and prob sold out immediately
when i hear thunder road, i always think of copperhead road
i think 50 is the new 40.
thunder road was probably my first favorite of his and one of my favoritist songs to this day– so Jersey
he’s in New Jersey tomorrow and Sat at Giants Stadium or whatever corporation bought the namimg rights- MetLife, i think; should be great shows; yeah, ya haveta save up for him and I was logged on to the computer as soon as they went on sale last time he was in TCB-got shit seats but it was a great show
ticket prices are so high nowadays. i think i paid $6.00 for my beatles at candlestick tix… or was it $4.25.
Of course, as a Masters level high school teacher in the late 60s to early 70s, I never made $10k per year. Rent was $105 per month. Oh, the good old days!
the phantom of the opry
my allowance at the time was 50 cents a week
And in high school I baby sat for $1.00/hour. Of course I also did child care in the late 1970s for $1.00/hour. Imagine!
i got 50 cents an hour as a babysitter. i used to get a whole dollar a week in addition to my allowance for watching my brother and sister on sat mornings so my mom could sleep — she worked an overnight shift on fri and sat nights and my job was to make sure they were quiet and there was no blood shed.
i would plop them down in front of the tv and we would watch sat morning cartoons while eating bowls of cereal.
oh god, yes; i was thinking the other day—-when Hot Tuna was around we used to see them at least twice that week, once in NJ and once in NYC and sometimes three times if they played one of the colleges; how much could tickets have cost if we were going to 3 concerts in a week
Back in the day, Girl. Back in the day.
Gotta hit the hay. Enjoy your tomorrow. And some colorful and interesting dreams tonight. Thanks for hosting.
Cap’n Crunch on sat mornings– my mom would allow us the “bad cereal” on saturdays– it was sspecial K and corn flakes and Total the frest of the week– now don’t get me started on cereal prices
me too, and me too-thanks suze—– and i remember we used to eat so much fish because fish was cheap
my folks would get the cereal in a bag stuff that was cheaper. my dad worked as a butcher at the commisary at the presidio and would pick up whatever was marked down.
i could go through a box of shredded wheat in a couple days all by myself. my folks used to call me the bottomless pit when it came to cereal
Aloha, Suz and lln pups…! I just got home from our weekly OH GA…! ;-)
