Yesterday was a bitter day indeed for our friends at DirtyUnderpants.com. President Bush was inaugurated for his second term (not that French guy whose name escapes me at the moment)...NOT ONE DAMN DIME DAY turned quickly to WASTE OF DAMN TIME DAY...Che and Karl are STILL dead...
So they decided to focus their anger and frustration onto one individual. WHO, you may ask! WHO is this powerful right-wing figure who drove them to fury? Karl Rove? George W. Bush? Shannen Doherty? Nope.
Yep, that's right. Little ol' inoffensive, innocent-as-a-newborn-lamb fuzzball me.
Turns out that they take great umbrage to my FReeper homepage. They started their own thread about it here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=105x2469227
Needless to say, when informed of this by OSHA, I was vexed. "Why?" I cried! "What BRINGETH their fire down on me?" "What CAUSETH their righteous indignation?" "How DOESETH this lint keep accumulating in my belly button?"
Turns out that they don't like the pics on my page. Well, specifically, they don't like my pics of scantily-clad famous babes like Jessica Simpson, Rose McGowan, Jaime Pressly, etc. You'd THINK they have more important things to worry about, but no.
So I am now looked down upon by DUh. Which is roughly akin to being called "untalented" by Ashlee Simpson. I added a special welcome message just for them. ;-) You can visit my page and see what upset them, if you haven't done so. But of course, if you think you might not like it, then just don't go. It's that simple. If you do, keep these rules in mind:
Heh. :) I'm sure they'll find this thread eventually, so I'd like to leave them with the ULTIMATE offensive pic (to them, anyway). So...
Yeah, but you did't know how he'd turn out. Early Springsteen is great.
WOW. Thanks for the plaque and for the major award. I understand the award is Italian as it came in a box labelled "Fragile"
"OMG! This is what happens when you let straight men do interior design."
I think it looks rather classy.
Oh yeah, the BBC Thinker quiz! I am still wondering how I am a Kinaesthetic Thinker. Must be all the sports I played as a kid and adult.
Who was the Blonde on NIght Flights? Isn't she a radio DJ now? NINA BLACKWOOD!! Just thought of it.
I actually preferred watching Rhonda Shear on USA's UP All Night. :^)
Thats what I always thought. It never seemed like I had heard of the bands or they were just WEIRD.
Skinner told them no more sexy threads and sent 'em to bed without supper. They have to live vicariously through me. :^)
Didn't she bring that chick with the accordion out all the time?
Hey, i leave and come back and you're still famous???? Wasupwidat?
(Rhonda Shear always was and always will be, HOT!) :-)
I -think- so, if I remember right...
Is that Milwaukees Best? Or The Beast as we used to call it in the olden days?
Didn't she marry Larry King?
I am assuming she enjoyed the AFC Championship game in 1995 as much as I did.
I'm sorry...Journey and Styx...
and Zepp is overrated. I was with you until that.
Wow, I have no clue on marriage, but she did show up on 'Larry King almost alive' pretty often and sometimes host it. Can't blame Larry for all his heart attacks if true.
Being in the same room with her would give me one!! (more than one hopefully!) :-)
"That hotdog and fries were SOOOO haaaaaaahhhhhhhht. SO was my Diet Coke. It was haaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhht. Really hit the spot. But that guy behind the counter that gave us a hard time for me wanting caviar on my dog? THAT was NOT haaaaaaaaahhhhhhhht. He is NOT haaaaaaaaaaahhhhhht."
And they say "haaaaaaahhhhhhht" with such BORED inflection...(signifying that they're so cool) which makes it all the funnier. Or sometimes it's said with hyperventilating enthusiasm...as is the case with my guy freinds that I've told this to. They can't wait to "test it out" at a party, once I've told them about the "haaaaaaahhhhhht thing," by craning their heads around for a pretty girl, pointing her out, and being the FIRST of the guys in the group to start with the "she's haaaaaaaaahhhhhhhht." I swear it's an "I win" thing. LOL.
Dude! Petra was awesome! The influence of Journey and Boston on their music was very obvious both in their sound and in their album covers. Petra paved the road in Christian "Rock" music for the bands that popular today. I had their albums "Never Say Die" and "More Power to You" and "Not of this World" and I saw them in concert a couple of times.
Her Hollywood career came about via her incredible success on the beauty pageant circuit. Winning her first title at age 16, SHEAR won over 40 major pageants, including "Miss Louisiana." RHONDA then went on to major with a B.A. in Communications from Loyola University. She was accepted to Loyola Law School after a brief but impressive attempt at a political career in New Orleans. After losing the office of Register of Conveyances by 135 votes in New Orleans, RHONDA packed her bags and headed to Hollywood. Bob Hope quickly spotted her and put her on in one of his specials. Like so many young actresses before her, Hope's nod of approval jump-started what was to become a solid acting, modeling career for SHEAR.
The Greg X Volz days were Petra's best. "Angel of Light" was another good one from those days along with "Let Everything That Has Breath". Of their ballads, I always liked "Looking thru Rose-colored Stained Glass Windows".
Can't you just feel the rhythm of the night coming on!
They are something else, alright. Seems they have a thang for FR, haha!
They remind me of cockroaches. They come outta the woodwork to invade us here.
Oh he's been doing it long before Paris and Nichole. They probably stole it from him! LOL!! My husband and I do it all the time, too. When we are getting ready to go out someplace I will ask my husband if I look just okay or haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhht.
Other one-hit wonders:
"Moonlight Feels Right" by Starbuck
"Afternoon Delight" by Starland Vocal Band (possibly the worst song ever written)
"Dream Weaver" (don't remember who did it)
But those were all probably late 70s rather than 80s
After this Sunday, the only place the Steelers will be going is homeIn November, a Patriot beat a bunch of vote Stealers.
I expect similar to happen this weekend.
I admit I saw Corey Hart back in the early 80s. And he wore his sunglasses at night.
*The American Bad Ass
Thanks for the info. I was never much for worshipping actresses or models, but Rhonda is one of the exceptions!
Like you said, nothing stereotypical about her, except maybe the wetlook lip gloss used long before the rest of the world caught on. :-)
Or maybe that was just the TV and my watery eyes at 3AM??? LOL!!!
Expectations about Peyton Manning may have led the Colts Pro shop to offer an `AFC Conference Champions' T-shirt for a brief time.
Heart is my #1 or #2 band (ducking for cover). "Barracuda" just rocks. Have you heard their new CD "Jupiter's Darling?" It's pretty good. They've gone back to their 70s roots, thank goodness.
Oh, you're a funy guy :)
BAH! Memphis Liberty Bowl, summer of 1976. Nobody was paying attention to what was going on on stage after Blue Oyster Cult finished their set. It was hot and the 60K was getting rowdy when all of a sudden the opening strains of this came out over the speakers.
Freebird Written by Allen Collins - Ronnie Van Zant If I leave here tomorrow Would you still remember me? For I must be travelling on, now, 'Cause there's too many places I've got to see. But, if I stayed here with you, girl, Things just couldn't be the same. 'Cause I'm as free as a bird now, And this bird you can not change. Lord knows, I can't change. Bye, bye, its been a sweet love. Though this feeling I can't change. But please don't take it badly, 'Cause Lord knows I'm to blame. But, if I stayed here with you girl, Things just couldn't be the same. Cause I'm as free as a bird now, And this bird you'll never change. And this bird you can not change. Lord knows, I can't change. Lord help me, I can't change.The Earth moved.
LOL, Wayback-machine Kitten! We do the VERY same. My husband knows to ALWAYS say I look haaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhht. (He really thinks so though, so that's cute.)
Here in Chicago, our guy friends say it more like the "a" in "hat," but I as a woman, say it more *bored*, and with an "o" as in "hot."
I won't deny that I like being told that I'm haaaaaaaaauuuuuuut. How can you help but smile at that? :-)
Greg X. Volz's On Bended Knee is the best work he did!
There are mechanics smiling all over the place to have new clean shop rags!
"Well, I liked the coloring song, but the next song on the album was VERY different. I think you're going to like the album better than I do."
I cracked up when I heard the album. "Chameleon" follows and it starts with a screaming guitar lick. I could just imagine her reaction. She's got a Bachelor's of Music in performance on the bass viol.
Another good one from that album was "Prase Ye The Lord."
(flick - Glow of 10,000 lighters) - * "What song ist it you wanna hear?"*
Hey, no need to duck. I read what I wrote and I dind't mean to say that "Heart" didn't seem to get it, but that women didn't seem to get it. Ann and Nancy get it.
"Barracuda" just rocks.
I'd have to agree.
Have you heard their new CD "Jupiter's Darling?" It's pretty good. They've gone back to their 70s roots, thank goodness.
No, but thanks for the suggestion. I'll definately have to give it a spin.
(Can you tell I miss my vinyl?)
Yep, getting told you're hot never gets old! LOL!!!
Wait, Retro, one last question...then I better go....vacuum...or do laundry...or try and get haaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhht. Are you in Chicago? Not meaning to pry.
OK, that has now made it's rounds at my office! LOL!
Yep, I grew up in the shadow of O'Hare and live in the western (southwestern- depending on who you talk to) suburbs.
Really, that's like saying "Aerosmith is overrated, but I sure like Loverboy."
