One year at the record fair, I was looking at this record, and Kristy McNichol's Little Darling's co-star Matt Dillon walked by.
  Wed. 9/2/15 9:21pm Julie:

I had the McNichols record
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/2/15 9:23pm efd:

I still have it! :D

sugarwolf, that is a great story!

gonna keep listening, turn sound off on TV, watch 'Barry Lyndon.' not sure this will end well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/2/15 9:50pm efd:

that is an interesting strategy, joe! I hope it works out for you.
  Wed. 9/2/15 9:51pm Larry:

Vi Kan Inte Stoppas means You Can't Stop us Now. I racall Kristy McNichol's character in Family as being incredibly unpleasant. "Curry? Lamb AND yogurt! Double Yuck!" In the 70s the band Family as much better than the TV show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/2/15 9:52pm Bronwyn Bishop:

The band Family is awesome Larry
  Wed. 9/2/15 9:54pm herb.nyc:

(Baseball. I told Le Big Takeover mag this: And radio said, recently, in a ny met win, first 7 batters had home run, a major league first. Neat.)

their album is really good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/2/15 10:02pm Uncle Michael:

I think saw 999 once...in like '79 with The Dickies. Is that possible?
  Wed. 9/2/15 10:02pm Larry:

worriers; another band that sounds like Blink-182! Maybe that's not such a bad thing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/2/15 10:05pm efd:

if Worriers sound like Blink 182 then I think I'm going to need to re-evaluate my opinion of Blink 182.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/2/15 10:06pm efd:

Definitely possible, Uncle Michael - I saw them in NYC around that time, maybe a year or two later. They were definitely putting records out in the late '70s.
Avatar Wed. 9/2/15 10:07pm JakeGould:

Apropos to Kristy McNichol, man did I have an elementary school crush on her back in the 1970s.
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/2/15 10:13pm Lonely Planet Boy:

never heard 2nd to None before, it kills!
  Wed. 9/2/15 10:14pm Larry:

Blink-182 is good, but of course they're no Green Day! Wait, maybe that's a good thing too...
  Wed. 9/2/15 10:17pm cheri:

Great Yo La Tengo track. Reminds me of the mood in "I heard you looking", albeit quieter.

Enjoying the show, EFD. Son's first baseball practice was today. I'm one of the coaches. Kids call me Coach C. Coaches call me Coach Kale, due to my vegan/"rabbit-food-eating tendencies." I like it!

@ch: I'm not a veggie because I love animals - but because I *really hate* vegetables !!...

Damn, I would miss Yo La Tengo...
Avatar Wed. 9/2/15 11:26pm JakeGould:

@clintonhensley: Did you hear that the “Coach” reboot was cancelled when execs saw the pilot and realized… “Wait! This is a ‘Coach’ reboot.” And Craig T. Nelson got paid for all proposed 13 episodes even though they will never be filmed because dude was the “Coach.”

@Bronwyn B That's why the archives are so great :)

ha, very cool Clinton! Good to see you, thanks for checking in.

Greetings Danne D!

Ice, you'll have to report back next week and let us know how the L7 show was. Saw them a few times back in the day and they were always great.

2113? That is one year past 2112. Whoa!
  Wed. 9/2/15 11:37pm clinton hensley:

@ JakeGould - I don't have cable. Not because I'm an elitist - but simply due to being a poor musician. And Magnum P.I. rules. Case closed. Hey, Evan. ;) Dokken! No one will no the difference at this point.
  Wed. 9/2/15 11:38pm clinton hensley:

And no one will know that I'm grammatically stunted at this point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/2/15 11:39pm efd:

I had a hunch you would agree, Uncle Michael.
Avatar Wed. 9/2/15 11:39pm JakeGould:

@cheri: “Magnum P.I.” is classic T.V. from the 1980s. Which character is your fave? Thomas Sullivan Magnum IV (Magnum)? Theodore Calvin (T.C.)? Orville Wilbur Richard "Rick" Wright (Rick)? Jonathan Quayle Higgins III (Higgins)? Mine is T.C. i like his lifestyle of owning and flying a cool helicopter on tours of the Hawaiian islands.
Avatar Wed. 9/2/15 11:40pm JakeGould:

@clintonhensley: Your grammar is fine with me.
  Wed. 9/2/15 11:40pm clinton hensley:

T.C., Indeed!
Avatar Wed. 9/2/15 11:42pm JakeGould:

@clintonhensley: T.C. gets to see all kinds of cool places, is never really caught up in the nonsense the others have and is always respected. I love the guy… Except for his Vietnam War PTSD. Yeesh. That is a cool/dark subplot aspect of the whole show… They are all Vietnam vets who never dealt with their PTSD.
  Wed. 9/2/15 11:42pm clinton hensley:

Thanks, Jake. My aunt was an English teacher and she traumatized me.
Avatar Wed. 9/2/15 11:43pm JakeGould:

@clintonhensley: I was told I had a “gutter mouth” in 4th grade because I cursed in class despite knowing how to spell and form sentences so hey.
  Wed. 9/2/15 11:43pm cheri:

on that note, i have to check out for real,efd! jake i'll comment on that more tomorrow. see you next week again,efd

@cheri: I hope you can learn how to appreciate “Magnum P.I.” Maybe you can login and create an avatar based on the show after you learn the joy of the show.

As a kid, I just couldn't get past the mustache. And the fake Ferrari. But I wasn't that smart at the time, or now.
Avatar Wed. 9/2/15 11:48pm JakeGould:

@AlexofChicago: Those were not fake Ferraris! They were all real, Ferrari 308 GTS’s. Stop spreading lies on the Internet!
  Wed. 9/2/15 11:50pm clinton hensley:

@ Jake - Wait, are we talking about the A-team and Howling Mad Murdoch? And, I hear you - my brother taught me how to curse my french teacher out on the first day of 9th grade, when he was a senior, but he didn't tell me what I ws saying. What a dick! Ha!
Avatar Wed. 9/2/15 11:53pm JakeGould:

@clintonhensley: That’s funny. Reminds me of me being in a school assembly between two kids fighting in 5th grade. One tells me, “Tell him his mother is a huuah!” I say, “What?” and he says it again… So I turn to the kid next to me and say, “He said your mother is a huaaah?” And the kid shuts up and slowly cries. He was telling me to tell that kid his mother was a “whore” (“huaahhh” in a Brooklyn accent). And the kid was crying because his mother indeed was a whore. So hey! I learned something new!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/2/15 11:53pm Alex of Chicago:

I was wrong. But 308's, pfft. :)
Avatar Wed. 9/2/15 11:54pm JakeGould:

So now “Cold Beat” sounds a bit like “Blondie” and a few days ago I thought they sounded like the “Go Gos”. My ears are playing nostalgic tricks on me.

Have a good night everyone!
