^Nah, him I know. He was born in the USA, so that's alright.

Joe's a heckuva nice guy, though. ;)

Um, I never did, much... I may have liked some Wham!, but not that one. I found Duran Duran a bit more, hmm, entertaining, I guess. ;)

Journey, the Eagles...wow, this thread has traveled way away from where I last saw it.  ;)

I'm with Norville (and it's Norville's city and my city and Lil's city).

I remember every time I came home from college I'd get misty eyed when caught my first sight of San Francisco. I *love* the Bay area.

Don't feel too bad jon, let me relate a true story.

Another message board I post at, yes Gode there are others out there ;), news spread of the death of Johnny Cash. This guy I know of let's call him Harry, had no idea who he was, he even went so far to post a thread stating that fact.

I had a few choice words for him, it wasn't nearly as diplomatic as I was with you.

Basically the guy was clueless.

There are those much more worse off.

I hope to go up to the City to see the Chinese New Year's parade.

I do, too, but used to love it considerably more. I don't like the way it's changed. ... It's funny to listen to me grumble like an old crone. At least I can't claim that when I was a kid, I had to walk 10 miles in the snow to school. ;)

Quote

I lived at the Rennaisance Faire grounds in Novato

Ohh... it's odd; I knew so many people back in high school who were RenFaire regulars, but I never went to it, myself. (It was a bit too rowdy for my taste, and my parents were definitely never going to let me do it.) And then, some years ago, they turned the Black Point forest into a freaking golf course. I knew a lot of pagans, too, and grumbled that I certainly wished that some witches would gather together and hex the developers who destroyed a good forest for the sake of a *golf course*... :glare:

Actually some of their bigger hits were in the 80s.

Damn, I can't recalled the titles.

The one with the line, just a small town girl living in her own little world and the other one with the line someday love will find you break those chains that bind you.

Those hits. :unsure:

^ Those would be "Don't Stop Believin'" and "Separate Ways", respectively.

I grew up in the 80s. Yesterday I filked WHAM! off the top of my head. And I know all the words to "Billie Jean Is Not My Lover".

Coincidentally, scars like that are the reasons I love classic rock. It's not so much better than, it's just NOT the '80s.

I was a teen in the early/mid-'80s and have this weird nostalgia for some of that music, even though it wasn't necessarily *good*. But ew, I just heard "Waiting for a Girl Like You" by Foreigner (from 1982, I think), a song that's almost always made me want to turn it off instantly. I think it's because Foreigner had an unpleasant tendency to scream high notes. Almost the only song of theirs that I liked at all, and I'm not sure why (because I haven't heard it in too long to remember), was "Juke Box Hero".

And doesn't MJ keep repeating the refrain "The kid is not my son"? Hmmm given current events, this takes on whole new meanings.  :cool:
