Mayer's actually a pretty talented guy I think....I'm not massive into him, but he's ok...a good guitarist and some of his songs are decent. That's about the best I can say. At least he writes actual pop and rock music..and can play

d'oh. Pompton Lakes. that's GREAT he's still in business... i loved that place when i used to live in Jersey (like 10 years ago)
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 4:59pm Caryn:

@josephebacon: supposedly, Sinatra was in a porn film when he was starting out. He was 19 or something. Burt Ward did some porn after the Batman tv show fame fizzled out.
Avatar    Wed. 2/26/14 5:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks RevRab. Beantown, now I'm curious again about their beans...

@Danne: That would be Irwin drumming, while Clay performs Led Zep's "Your Time Is Gonna Come", 99% edition! :)

Then again, in the old days there was lots of that going on. Heck, Joan Crawford did plenty of lesbian porn when she was still a young actress.

Oh, Brian Dewan. How far you have come from "Wastepaper Basket Fire."

I couldn't hit Plant's high notes, Matt. He can't either!
  Wed. 2/26/14 5:07pm Ralphine:

I should've watched more of Crawford's movies when she was the star of the month on Turner Classic Movies a couple of months ago!
  Wed. 2/26/14 5:08pm LovecraftDude888:

Yvonne Craig was as hot as it gets....Batgirl used to give me a raging woodie! each and every time riding by on the bat bike

That woman that played Isis was pretty hot, too.

C'mon guys! Irwin needs you. Pledge now!
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 5:11pm Caryn:

Still, mid-1930s-mid-1940s Crawford was significantly more attractive than early-1920s porn Crawford. The Hollywood studios knew how to pretty up their stars.

Week 1 kicks Week 2's butt. What's that, Week 2? Oh yeah, nothing, because you can't be bothered to show up until next week.
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 5:15pm Kevlicki:

I presume Matt Farley never went to Middletown. It wasn't a terrible place, it had the fairgrounds where I saw many concerts in my childhood. It was strip malled and had the Orange Plaza Mall where I spent many hours doing absolutely nothing. Otherwise not a whole "lot going down, in middletown". Happily not living in Orange County in my adulthood
  Wed. 2/26/14 5:16pm LovecraftDude888:

ha no bookstores in Middletown, but one adult video shop!

Waaay too quiet in here. Please consider pledging. Perhaps sacrifice a meal or delay a bill payment. Priorities are in order! 800 989 9368.

That is a spot on impersonation of james
Avatar Wed. 2/26/14 5:28pm Caryn:

Sheesh, just glanced at the tv listings, and they're showing "30 Century Man" for like the 9th time in 6 months! Then again, I immediately switched to that channel, so I guess it's a working strategy.

Yes. If you drive north to Montreal from the New York area you go past the New Baltimore rest area on the Thruway.
