True fact: At a concernt, I heard Al Stewart tell a story about his childhood friendship with Robert Fripp who gave Al ten weird guitar lessons. Al quit to write folk songs, and Fripp did something else. But, they are still friends: http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/entertainment/music/sdut-al-stewart-concert-preview-2015apr01-story.html.

Here is Al performing in December 2018 - in the future, apparently: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIDP99dwYQc.

Good show; nice, geriatric crowd.


Ha I saw Al Stewart last year too (in Oakland, with Gary "Spooky Tooth" Wright!) and he told the same story. I'd probably never stop talking about it either!



Yep. I saw him very recently, and the story hasn't changed since then. I enjoyed the show, but I would have maybe prefered these surroundings - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5lacM2W7DQ - or Masa's. Heard the bar staff improved there recently.

FEAR singer Lee Ving talks about the Halloween 1981 SNL performance on LipTV: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xSHqr57v0A.



Of Clue the Movie fame!


Isn't he most famous for his role on "Who's the Boss?"

"Mona convinces Tony to let Samantha stay out all night for a concert. Inspired, Angela makes a list of spontaneous things she wants to do. Tony encourages her, until he finds out she is dating the former high school wild man."


My parents let me watch V, The Day After, Beastmaster, Emmanuelle, all that stuff - but they drew the line at Danza.


Speaking of Emmanuelle, today I learned that movie stole Larks Tongue Part 2 for the soundtrack and Robert Fripp sued (and won)! I guess this means I gotta watch Emmanuelle again? Sigh.

Empty Pockets are his back up band and they are from Chicago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9a85mOhLlQ. They seemed to be honored to play with him, but, at 72, I am sure Al is happy to have these kids around.

The Half Hour of Power was going to go Patreon-only or Patreon-first at one point, but then Tom got into Meet my Friends the Friends and it faded away.

The thing we really need but never got is PeeperTalk, the call-in where the peepers describe their nights dodging buckshot blasts and surviving ladder failure.

SMOKE OR FIRE - INTEGRITY
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlANf0BbtWo

Quote
"…[What I wish I had known is that the midlife slump] is a very common thing. It is a transition that is natural and normal, in some ways  analogous to adolescence, a version of it is seen even in chimps or orangutans  and it’s tricky because we assume midlife malaise, when we go through it, is  about something, there must be something wrong with my life or with my  personality. But very often…midlife slump is literally about nothing.” - Jonathan Raouch, The Happiness Curve

Intrigued? Listen to The Happiness Curve on Matt Lewis Show: http://www.mattklewis.com/?p=9770. It comes with a slide show: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Voyage_of_Life.
 
Next, maybe give a listen to Tiffany Haddish on Paul Gilmartin's Pod-thingy here:
http://mentalpod.com/archives/4816.
 
Then, consider what little integrity Charles Murray has, especially with his  latest “evidence” and condemnations. Yeah, but then again why? Nothing would  change his mind about some of the real, underlying reasons for today’s inequities and their many roots in the carefully-planned failure of the projects: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKgZM8y3hso.

I guess then I'll ponder my place on the Happiness Curve and wonder, "how I get here?" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQiOA7euaYA

I am just full of blah-blah-blah, huh?*

*For years, I thought these were the real Sex Pistols, just as intended. Thank you Mrs. Googles!

KYLE DUNNIGAN - WE'RE MAD AT YOU
https://www.instagram.com/p/BhxUlonDfhp/?taken-by=kyledunnigan1

I didn't understand that this was a parody of the Kardashian family, so I didn't get it right away. I was a little faster with Tap the top: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bh9u6wGj5RK/?taken-by=kyledunnigan1.  It only took 4 viewings to realize that is was completely real.

Warning: Unholy; politically divisive;  ageist.
