My Favorite Bands

  • Aug 4, 2009
I'm not even going to bother with explaining why I've chosen what I have... instead I leave it to you to listen to these groups and these artists and ask yourselves, "Why didn't I choose these?" After all, most of these are essential listening! And anyone wondering why John Lennon is on here it's because he was in the band John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band (see the word band is actually in the title of his band) and he rarely ever released any substantial work as a solo artist without his faithful girlfriend, collaborator, and screeching monkey, Yoko Ono, by his side. So take that Queenie!

John Lennon will never be part of any other band. You can say Plastic Ono Band all you want but people went to see John Lennon, Can you name me any 2 other musicians in the band who were there on a regular basis, not including Yoko?
September 02, 2009
Yes, I can. Frank Zappa and Eric Clapton were on again off again members.
September 02, 2009
That's cheating. I mean constant members. That's like citing Billy Preston as a member of the Beatles.
September 02, 2009
No, it's not really cheating since clear-cut rules had not been established. ; )
September 02, 2009
That's what you think. If you'll look you'll notice that I took my Way Back Machine and went back and established the rules while you weren't looking!
September 02, 2009
Now, that IS cheating. I state for the record, no way back machines for use other than to correct spelling errors!
September 02, 2009
That wasn't cheating. That was fun!
September 02, 2009
Was it now? Watch this!
September 02, 2009
Uh oh.
September 02, 2009
How was that for immature and annoying? I told you, I could break the annoy-o-meter and it wouldn't be pretty. Should've listened to me.
September 02, 2009
You made me look for it but I finally found it. I'm a retired postal worker. That didn't even cause a blip.
September 02, 2009
How disappointing. Well, I suppose I could annoy you by telling you what I think of US Postal Service, but then again you probably wouldn't be annoyed by that either. You're one tough customer, but don't worry 'cause I've got some energy on reserve and I'll find something that'll bug ya! ; )
September 02, 2009
The only way you could annoy me by saying anything about the postal service is by saying that it works so much better since they replaced skilled human beings with computers. Which is why you now have what everyone likes to refer to as snail mail--it's all computerized.
September 02, 2009
oh, well, then you won't be annoyed when I say that the US Postal Service should be completely disbanded and replaced by digital mail, which will not only help to cut back on the waste of paper but also enable people to avoid junk mail. Naturally, all packages would have to be delivered via UPS or other services instead.
September 02, 2009
Of course not. Why would I possibly object to several million more people being unemployed?
September 02, 2009
Heck, at least we could all bitch and moan in unison! ; )
September 02, 2009
Nothing in this country has ever united people--least of all now and certainly NOT unemployment. The USPS was an incredibly large organization and as it's cut down in size the ripples have been felt all through society. The computer has caused so much unemployment in this country that it's not funny at all.
September 02, 2009
United in bitching and moaning doesn't expand to any other aspects of our existence, does it? And hey, I think i'm getting close to annoying you, am I right? : )
September 03, 2009
Not you, the computer. Which I will now solve by going and eating dinner. Actually it's also breakfast and lunch. I'm on a starvation diet. Not too bad so far. 24 pounds in 5 weeks. Can't really remember since my body is devouring my brains cells.
September 03, 2009
I tend to go on a week long starvation diet and trust me it's not good for either your metabolism or your brain function. Luckily, today was shopping day so I'm munching on cheese, crackers, vegan pepperoni, and drinking green tea. Mmmmmm... :-p
September 03, 2009
Oh, you mentioned cheese! I've got sharp cheddar in the fridge that I need to keep away from until tomorrow! I'm really doing okay, except if I tilt my head to the side too long (like checking out a shelf of books at the library or something) I get a bit dizzy. Taking a lot of vitamins. After I get down a few more pounds I'll be able to add a bit more food and get a bit more physical. Dieting can be very disappoingting when you don't see any results. Starvation was my kick starter.
September 03, 2009
I'm enjoying some Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar cheese. Very tasty. You know that drinking green tea will boost your metabolism and if you drink the natural, healthy kind with caffeine, then you'll be reenergized as well. When I first started dieting I began drinking it like crazy and I lost about 30 pounds in about five months, which isn't as impressive as 24 pounds in five weeks. But you have to watch out for rapid weight loss because it can be potentially disastrous for your heart condition and we want our Queen to be healthy so she can continue to grace us with her sarcasm. ; )
September 03, 2009
Really. (You should read that as if it's positively dripping sarcasm)
September 03, 2009
Yuck, that was bit more than a drip. You sarcasmed all over me. Now I'm going to have to change into a cleaner, more sincere tee-shirt. ; )
September 03, 2009
It's difficult to have the proper intonation in type.
September 03, 2009
I was being literal while being sarcastic in response to your being figurative while being sarcastic. Comprende, amigo?
September 03, 2009
mais certainement, monsieur.
September 03, 2009
No comprende! LOL. I only know a few phrases. I'm a little bit better with German, though mostly from my collection of classic German silent films.
September 03, 2009
Vous ne parle pas pigeon francais?
September 04, 2009
Are you having fun talking to yourself?... because without a translate button, I'm absolutely useless!
September 04, 2009
All I said was , you don't speak pigeon French? although I don't know how to say "pigeon" in French...I have this great book By Max Shulman called "Barefoot Boy With Cheek" and at the beginning of evey chapter is a quote in very elementary Latin or French that's attributed to some famous writer or philosopher such as, "Le crayon est sur  la table."--Voltaire. I also have a tiny little mini-book about translating your cat's French. There's a four page section on throwing up furballs. On the last furball page it simply says, "Voila."
September 04, 2009
Nope, not even pigeon. Sorry.
September 04, 2009
Did you read the amendment above about Max Shulman?
September 04, 2009
Yeah, you're weird, but you already know that. (blows a kiss) Voila! Now, weren't we talking about John Lennon, how'd we got on the subject of puking cats and the peculiarities of the French language? LOL.
September 04, 2009
Seems like a logical progression to me.
September 04, 2009
It would to you. ; ) Voila! That just became my word of the day, just because it's so much fun.
September 04, 2009
Thanks to French speaking cats everywhere.
