Last year, on the way home from the shore, I was overcome by nostalgia and had a bit of a breakdown. I was bawling so much I had to pull over and let my wife drive up the parkway. It was a pretty intense experience. Felt really good.

Is this the anniversary for the 1st Episode or Aerial View? :)

Typical Useless study makes headlines in the NYT. People nostalgic after reading about disasters... Douche study. Web: sears catalog/elec mail/library... SIMULATATED GARBAGE...

Why remember the guy's name when you can just look it up on the internet?
  Tue. 8/6/13 6:33pm People:

You are correct, sir. We are boring. The internet gives us the material to quell the boredom.

Hi ho, hi ho! Da dataminers are here!
Avatar Tue. 8/6/13 6:39pm spodiodi:

Mr. Dj Chris T., would you consider playing Jello Biafra's 'Nostalgia for a Time That Never Existed'?

Scientists: "remember the good old days when we solved most medical problems with a hacksaw?"

Age* That Never Existed
Avatar    Tue. 8/6/13 6:41pm Danne D:

So I might have been just a little nostalgic when I purchased that Imperial Tween Live at Maxwell's CD this week (I was at that particular show)
Avatar Tue. 8/6/13 6:41pm Jelly Jim:

Hi WFMU facebook is a masive data collection website
Avatar Tue. 8/6/13 6:41pm spodiodi:

Don't forget the whiskey and prayer, Danne D. (Hi, btw :) )
Avatar Tue. 8/6/13 6:42pm spodiodi:

I totally RELY on WFMU to collect my data!
Avatar    Tue. 8/6/13 6:42pm Danne D:

Wait so "The Way You Look Tonight" was just the prequel for "It Was A Very Good Year"?
Avatar Tue. 8/6/13 6:43pm Jelly Jim:

Nostalgia aint what used to be !
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/6/13 6:43pm Folsom:

Fred Astaire sung it first, don't know who wrote it.
Avatar Tue. 8/6/13 6:43pm spodiodi:

lol Jelly Jim
Avatar    Tue. 8/6/13 6:44pm Danne D:

Dorothy Fields and Jerome Kern wrote "The Way You Look Tonight" - originally a hit for Fred Astaire: en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar    Tue. 8/6/13 6:44pm Danne D:

Sinatra being Sinatra though, nobody remembers the fact that anyone else did that song :)
  Tue. 8/6/13 6:44pm Ralphine:

That Astaire movie was on Turner Classic Movies last week.
Avatar    Tue. 8/6/13 6:45pm Danne D:

FXO has played some of the other takes of "Summer Wind" on his show the last couple of weeks. Amazing to hear a less than perfect Sinatra.
  Tue. 8/6/13 6:45pm Hippie:

Check out the Atlantic City Pop Festival held a couple of weeks prior to Woodstock. Nice lineup.
Avatar    Tue. 8/6/13 6:46pm Danne D:

I like the idea of a young Nixon as an "Our Gang" character.
  Tue. 8/6/13 6:46pm Pat Nixon:

He was a marvelous dancer.
  Tue. 8/6/13 6:47pm Barrack:

Nixon got nothing on me.
Avatar Tue. 8/6/13 6:47pm spodiodi:

I think he would be named Jowlsy.
Avatar Tue. 8/6/13 6:48pm darue:

Dorothy Fields, Jerome Kern
  Tue. 8/6/13 6:48pm The Way You Look Tonight:

1936: The song was written by Jerome Kern with lyrics by Dorothy Fields, and has become a standard. Fields later remarked, "The first time Jerry played that melody for me I went out and started to cry. The release absolutely killed me. I couldn't stop, it was so beautiful."
Avatar Tue. 8/6/13 6:50pm darue:

it's true, the search for odd little trivia (sometimes not so trivial) was a much more involved and chance event than now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/6/13 6:51pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

Hey, Fuckers!!!
Avatar    Tue. 8/6/13 6:52pm Danne D:

Spodiodi is putting me to shame tonight, it's true.
Avatar Tue. 8/6/13 6:52pm spodiodi:

Just wait till I start scrolling ASCII art :-B I'll pipe down.
Avatar    Tue. 8/6/13 6:54pm Danne D:

I was -1 in 1969, so no nostalgia from me :)

You're fine spodiodi :)
Avatar Tue. 8/6/13 6:56pm spodiodi:

I refer back to my first point, facebook is a data collection website in disgiuse
Avatar Tue. 8/6/13 6:59pm spodiodi:

Chris T. Rules! Jello For President!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/6/13 6:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

A local radio station today played a report about the Enola Gay. When I got back, I looked up some history web sites to review the events of this day in 1945.
Avatar Tue. 8/6/13 6:59pm spodiodi:

I requested it, thank you!
Avatar    Tue. 8/6/13 7:00pm Danne D:

actual spodiodi made the request :)
