I guess option #2 is calling it a day and moving down to Florida...in your basement.

I got my black socks, white tennis shoes and lucky bingo chips ready. When can I fly down?
Come on down I could use a deck hand.

Uh, you missed the point. Option #2 is retirement. That means I no longer do work. I live in your basement, watch sports and you bring me food and drink. Then on Saturdays, it's an action-packed day of Big Ten football!!!

Band On The Run is the best of that bunch IMO. Pretty good deal though.

Nice fire picture.



And in other news...

Today a kid asked me what a "platter" was in regards to music. When I told her it was an old slang term for a phonograph (note the pronunciation) record she announced in amazement...

"Wow, I didn't know they had music on phones in the old days!"



Suicide is imminent. Please address all donations to The Past...and don't be stingy.

Yeah, Band on the Run was a good album. With that said, neither Lennon or McCartney were the same without George Martin. He's definitely the most overlooked element to the Beatles. I think it was People Magazine that called Sgt. Pepper's "George Martin's new album" in a review when it first came out

I believe the only solo album either of them did with Martin was McCartney's Tug Of War.

Yeah, they don't call him the "Fifth Beatle" for nothing.

I'm pretty sure you're right on Tug Of War but could be wrong. Lennon's solo stuff has grown on me in the last decade or two. Always liked it, but appreciate it more now. It was just so frustrating that Yoko f'd everything up.

I don't like Lennon's solo stuff. For how creative he was with the Beatles, his solo-stuff is really straightforward. And it goes back to George Martin: Lennon's solo music just didn't have the full-body that The Beatles stuff did. I'd say the same thing about McCartney, but McCartney's solo music was much more creative, IMO. Songs like Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey could have passed as a song on Abbey Road.

Let It Be, produced by Spector, was alright; there's no the George Martin feel to it. What made the album for me was Billy Preston-- he really stole the show. I love the electric piano and organ parts he has on the album. Who doesn't love his electric piano solo in Get Back ?

One problem with your plan.... no basement down here in the swamp land. So the attic will have to do and it's hot as hell up there. You might melt.

That's right. You bastards don't have basements down there.

The AC is set according to my desire...that's another point you're missing.

I liked the fact it was straightforward...lol.

Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles, Yellow Submarine,Abbey Road,Let It Be

Depending on the day, I could go with any of 'em as my favorite though the slight overall edge would probably go to Pepper's.

Staying in on Friday: fail.

But Saturday night: win.

One week left till I move. Cannot wait to get a change of surroundings.

I have given up beer more or less. I'll have a couple here and now, but drinking it to get drunk is a waste. Takes at least a six-pack to feel anything now, and it gives you a gut. Straight liquor or go home... Bacardi 151, 75% alcohol, is the choice and it is some hardcore stuff.

April is a slow time for parades...which is sad. Nothing like a good parade...

I am surrounded by boxes and moving this weekend (to the "House That Sports Central Built"). Moving is a b*tch. I have never driven a big truck before and am used to my sports car, so I hope I survive driving a 24-foot UHaul truck 30 miles on the highway...
