Hallo Guido! Wie gehts?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/3/14 6:09am Matt from Springfield:

@P-90: Absolutely! In Steel Town (Steelton, in fact!)
Outside of Harrisburg, and my mom's family still lives outside of that town. Hardly any industrial jobs there anymore, and the economic base of Steelton proper is very shaky. At least the Harrisburg area has had more jobs/opportunities coming in than other Rustbelt communities around the U.S.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/3/14 6:20am Matt from Springfield:

@Meghan: Yep, it was Bethlehem Steel in Steelton--it would be great if they thought of something like casinos to build down by the river. The problem too is all those old buildings are in the floodplain, so they wouldn't build there nowadays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/3/14 6:21am Matt from Springfield:

@CS: Indeed! My dad said that the first two Bond movies weren't promoted too heavily in the States, but Goldfinger was--his first and many others' first movie that introed them to the franchise.

Also, noticed your "I Beam" link up there. I remember that when I was a kid and when I was into rediscovering classic Sesame Street clips. It's the 3-note "Jaws" like riff that makes it creepy!

On my part i forgot that there is a metal called tin.

If you put the keywords at AllMusic and searc for "songs", that should be the easiest way to get purposals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/3/14 7:08am Meghan:

Oh interesting.... never used that as a resource for FINDING songs.... usually just for just record labels.... thanks Guido!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/3/14 7:08am Meghan:

That and I had over 4 hours of GOLD songs I had to get through! ha!
Avatar Thu. 4/3/14 7:09am Dave B:

I use iTunes "Smart Playlists" to whittle down tracks based on words in song titles.

But I like that idea. Thanks Guido

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/3/14 7:11am Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

@KP: I like aluminium cans over bottles. My theory is that the conductive metal makes it feel colder because it draws heat from the lips.

Cambridge in the autumn -- yes! I have strong sensory memories of walking at dawn from the Mass Ave bus stop back home on Irving St. after my 3rd shift job at a biolab. Are you from Cambridge?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/3/14 7:25am Meghan:

Good morning Kat! I grew up in the North Shore, so I spent many high school weekends wandering the streets of Boston and Cambridge..... That particular memory involves going to Mystery Train Records, Oona's, the Garment District and of course stopping off at the Garage to check out Newbury Comics and Allston Beat....
  Thu. 4/3/14 7:27am KP:

I think Mary Lou Lord lives in that area as well

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/3/14 7:28am Meghan:

ahhh, nice. Still have family and friends all up and around the area. Don't get back there as often as we should.
Avatar Thu. 4/3/14 7:32am kat330:

Probably unlikely our paths would have crossed (since I'm at the age of everyone's mother these days it seems ;), but I did music, theater et al between the end of '74 and the end of '77 in Cambridge.

Hell it's almost unrecognizable to me since 1992! But yeah, I could imagine there was a huge difference from the 70's..... Yep, the Coop is still there!
Avatar Thu. 4/3/14 7:36am C.S.:

I think they are both still there but not much else. Remember Tasty?
Avatar Thu. 4/3/14 7:38am kat330:

@C.S.: Was that around the back side of the, mm, maybe south side of the Sq? Didn't do a lot of eating out -- as I still don't -- saving money for more important things -- like films. :)
Avatar Thu. 4/3/14 7:38am C.S.:

Back in the 70s you had a huge subway car facility where the Kennedy School of Govt. is. Lots of changes. Too young to see them other than in pictures.

Avatar Thu. 4/3/14 7:43am kat330:

Well, I'm unsure of direction, too -- that was a looonnng time ago, with Los Angeles and Chicago in-between back in Indiana -- but I guess I mean the side closest to the Charles River? I recall some eatery behind at the back of the buildings fronting the Square.

@C.S.: Well, it was already that way on Arlington St. when we lived there. Beautiful 3-story homes. We lived above a family where the dad was a lawyer and the wife a social worker. We had really low rent in exchange for babysitting two great kids and a brainless golden retriever named Abby. :)

Brit pronunciation of "aluminum" has always posed a conundrum -- or should I say "conundrium" -- for me. I don't believe the word is spelled differently in the UK, is it? And yet to pronounce it the way they do, it would need to be spelled "aluminium" with an extra syllable "i" in it.

@C.S.: :) Far better than US in most instances. This one word is a sticking point for me though.

I miss the fun of arc welding. In high school shop class, I made a cart for Dad's oxygen-acetylene gas welder. I painted it blue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/3/14 8:25am Meghan:

Alessia..... I recently saw that too..... I think Faye posted it.... CRAZY!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/3/14 8:27am Meghan:

Well it is Clarissa..... she did explain it all....
  Thu. 4/3/14 8:28am Robert:

kat330, the British speling, "aluminium" does indeed match the pronunciation. It matches the other -ium elements' pattern, and in this case it's the Amer. spelling & pron. that breaks the mold.
Avatar Thu. 4/3/14 8:29am kat330:

@Robert: Aha! Thanks for the edifi- and edu-cation!
  Thu. 4/3/14 8:29am Robert:

However, the American spelling & pron. of aluminum is consistent with molybdenum.

Any pewter songs?
Avatar Thu. 4/3/14 8:33am Davee:

What about Aluminum; there must be some songs about that?
Avatar Thu. 4/3/14 8:34am Davee:

@kat330: Pewter songs would be Soft Rock.
