Junior Walker & The Allstars — Shotgun, on Hullabaloo, 1966.
What’s on your mind?
I boogied to this a thousand times!
hey ce — me too!!! i did the jerk to it :) how’s cleveland tonight?
Oh! 1966. I was 14 years old, but we had two drum sets in the living room: Dad and older brother. They jammed to everything.
*heh* ’66 is da total bomb…! ;-)
Aloha, Suz and lln pups…! *g*
Lovely. Fall is here, weeks early. Leaves are red and gold and falling everywhere. I had my annual Columbus Day vacay day to upgrade mobile phone yesterday. Today, back to the grind.
i was 12 or close to it… no drums but we had a kick ass magnavox color tv with am/fm hi-fidelity stereo with record player. i am surprised i didn’t bust out the speakers on that huge thang *laughing* of course, i never did that when my parents were around
aloha tut — how’s paradise tonight? did the munchkin get his test today?
Oh that too! Forgot about “The Jerk.”
leaves are a’changing here too… temps are dropping and we have *ta-da* rain in the forecast for friday.
what does it take?
Wow! All in a credenza too, I’m sure. I never had a color tee vee until close to 1985. MrCE and I lived pretty close to the bone.
my mom was madder than a wet hen when my dad bought that… all that money but that setup was still working well into the 70′s. i think my mom ended up giving it to goodwill when she remarried
Eeech, this man is a little prick.
Sure filled up the living room! I spent hours, HOURS, lying in front of it listening to all sorts of records. Jazz, show tunes, opera, Kennedy spoofs…
Sorry, something else came up on google, not the music.
No, because they’ve yet to assign him a ‘Primary Physician’…! Absolute paperwork f*ckery…! And, unfortunately, there’s a serious dearth of Pediatricians able to even read the results here on the Big Isle…! 8-(
But, he was mighty feisty, and, wrecked much havoc here today…! ;-)
oh my… it was a link to jr walker doing what does it take….. let me try it again
fuck that totally fucking blows tut… tis good that ya got to spend the day with him tho
Hola, Suz and all.
CT, that is some fuckery.
I’d noticed that Jules was in fine form earlier too, Suz…! ;-)
We are on the same freakin’ wavelength.
hola bg — how’s nm tonight?
today she is 18 months…. i love that picture jen posted on my facebook page…. so flipping cute
fucking fuckery for fuckity fuck’s sake… he’s a fucking baby and they are fucking around with his health and health care… tis a fucking shame for sure…
live at the ramjam
…so flipping cute…
*heh* No doubt, that was a killah grin…! ;-)
Dare I say this is a late, late night fuck thread?
she looks so much like her mama…. i look at julsie and its like being back in the late 70′s again…
this thread is whatever the fuck you guys want to fucking make it ce
Well fuck all this cold weather, and the stoopid trees that fell down and crossed my fucking lawn. So there.
i’m glad its gonna fucking rain — even if it is gonna rain for days on end… its about fucking time but lardy, its fucking cold when i get up.
did the stupid trees damage anything?
I fucking agree! I even had to close all my windows and lock some doors. I fucking love autumn, but give me a break fellas!
evening, Suzzzz – firegods. How’s everyone tonight?
hey ppd — how’s the monterey bay tonight?
Well the main fucking tree fell down and crushed the fuck out of MSCE’s car — when it fell and the window glass blew out we freaked.
beautiful today, kinda dark tonight, hoping the bay is still there tomorrow morning.
Sorry — Suzanne and I were having a “fuck” thread.
today??? ohmystars ce… how bad was her car hurt? is it totalled?
It was this summer — totally CRUSHED and glass everywhere. We stood, ten feet away, with gin and tonics in hand.
hiya CE — no problem. What’s a few fucks between friends, anyway?
Hope no one was injured in the tree on car action, above.
*exhaling* i thought ya had *more* tree woes….
…We stood, ten feet away, with gin and tonics in hand…
*heh* Cheers, M’dear…! ;-)
I will try to send photos sometime soon. Night all — workday in hours.
night, CE – don’t pitch your tent under that big tree.
I’m totally stoked that I will be working up top of Mauna Kea, tomorrow nite and Thursday nite, a most blessed windfall, since I was only looking at one nite this month…! 8-)
Had a little break there, sorry I missed the extra fuckery upthread, you all know how I fucking love a fuck thread.
Working on the last of the Black Hole exit strategery. Coming along.
woohoo!!! wonderful news dood
And, sorry, I forgot to mention how totally adorable that little Julsie is. Too cute for words. Love her outfit too.
jen puts her in the cutest clothes! that ladybug costume (over at my place) just makes me melt…
Yikes! Getting high again, CT?
Enjoy! And enjoy it for all of us.
How much do you have left of the ‘Black Hole’, bg…?
ohey dearie — how was your day?
*heh* I’m always getting high, PPD, I won’t lie…! ;-)
Hi, Suz. All is well in the ‘nard. Lovely, quiet day.
Over 30,000 feet from ocean floor to peak, CT — that’s the greatest elevation difference on the planet.
yay.. i love those kinda days…. i can feel the change in the air… these are the last few days of sun.
Aloha, Dearie…! I always enjoy it up there, despite the often frigid climes, and, it being a paycheck…! ;-)
Hey, PPD. What’s cookin’?
I’m on the biggest, free-standing Rock in the World, PPD…! ;-)
Less than 10 semi loads, we hope.
is that down by a good chunk from when ya started?
Jon Stewart is on a romp again tonight. Doing the work that the “Lame Stream Media” is too lame to do.
exactly — even without that Kona Gold enhancer. U rock, dude
just watched The Choice 2012 PBS Frontline special on RMoney & Obama
i heart jon stewart
Maybe we got rid of one and a half or two semi loads since we started. . .so uh, whatever is gone is good.
oh crap.. i was gonna watch that and forgot — how was it?
Daily Show just ran a clip of FDR that is sublime…. all about how the plutocrats say, “Just let us take care of it….. and it will cost you nothing.” Wow… on point. How have we dumbed down so far so fast?
i was gobsmacked when i saw that… they sure don’t make politicians the way they used to… wow that was good
Don’t fret — it will be rebroadcast on your PBS alternate channels, then on Frontline’s web site next week, I’m sure.
i don’t get the alt channels… have just one pbs station to watch on my direct tv setup… i don’t have a lotta bells and whistles on my plan
I have never had any kind of cable. I would like to have a better signal, but I am happy to watch PBS and the occasional thing on the non-cable channels. I do like PBS most of the time. I’m amazed we still have it at all.
Total Pretzelosity I’ll defer to your judgment after viewing it yourself.
tis one of my most watched channels… i’ve had cable in one version or another since the mid-80′s… i did just fine with rabbit ears when i was living in the california burbs but then i married ex #2 who had to have cable with all the movie channels
i’ll try to catch it on a rerun or perhaps online
I am fairly haphazard with my viewing habits, so I never really figure out when the shows are one or focus on the shows I like. But I have seen some great stuff on PBS, often in the middle of the night when I can’t sleep.
I think I am going to try to sleep now. Have a great night, everyone, and thanks for the tunes tonight, Suz.
tis time for token to save a tree. thanks for starting of my week with a great thread tonight — g’nite all
Here’s the link, Suzzz.
Sweet dreams, Suz…!
night, Suzzz – be well
