Hard to believe Deborah Harry turned 75 a couple of days ago, she still looks and is so beautiful. I can remember seeing her for the first time in the mid-seventies at CBGBs, what an incredible talent and beauty.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Sheila. I can't tell C-minor from E-major from a 60-cycle hum. One of the WFMU channels should have a show that teaches music theory and such.

I’d like to hear tony do uptown in the first person as the guy. It could go hard either way.

Not too shabby! We did little hike in the rain and then back to the house and the sun is coming out. The dog had his pig's ear, and all is well with this tiny little corner of the world. I assume everything else has improved markedly, too?

Great set, Sheila!

Got to see Ivy open for Kitchens of Distinction, around '97 I think.

Hour long set was magical and so appreciated. Sitting on patio in shade, trimming garlic harvested today, so aromatic and with your set was a perfect hour spent. Thank you !

Oh, nice, TDK60!
Avatar 4:06pm Avrilinmay:

Sheila if you think there is no immediate reason prompting you to talk about such things, then you have no idea how much less lonely and crazy I've just felt hearing talk about being afflicted with these thoughts ! It helps so much to know that other people deal with the same extreme empathy and how to cope with it. Thank You!
Now all that's left is to continue the battle not to be crushed under that weight ...
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Listener John from NJ:

hello all!
  4:08pm WM:

Dear Shelia: Sounds to me that you are starting to think like an adult - and yes that is supposed to be a compliment. I wanted a lot of time worrying "what will people think." Your opening set was very good. Stick with your new style (nothing wrong with your old style, for that matter).

*whispers* as somebody born in the mid-80s.. I once had a realization that Joan of Arc from Bill & Ted was in the Go-Go's.

"I've been through the fire,
I felt embers down my spine,
And I've said 'World would you please have some mercy on me?
Or could you please lift the curses on me?'"

Sounds like weighty material to me.
