Besides forgiving day, librarians here arrange annually The Library Night at 27th May. The day when library works 24 hours, at midnight everybody gathers to play various book-related games, quizes, win prizes, visit book exhibitions in different cabinets & many others. Fun guaranteed. You got sth. similar in your state/ city, Buckethead?

3. Wait, you chased mean girl to say sorry to her? What for?
5. I'd seen documentary researching the subject you talk about, historians tell there that Hitler had impersonators who were trained to speak like him etc. They kinda looked like him, they're sent to different places to give impression it's Hitler addressing people in the street. Did you know it?

Do you believe in UFO? Yeti?

Hey, it really fits. Philip Lambert may be right.

2guitarfool2002: Well said as usual. Agree 200% with the last bit.

Alright. We'll agree to disagree as I still don't see why people can't do what *they* would like to do, why they're scared that they wouldn't be accepted into group etc. Talking about countries with freedom, I didn't talk about places where people get seriously punished if they dress differently etc. But when you live in place with freefom, it doesn't make sense people would get easily influenced. F.ex. everybody's got mobile phone. I bought it too but everybody buys the coolest phone, I buy it as mean to talk. Everybody buys fridge - is it peer pressure too? Or just realization that this is convenient, in fact single way to store food & prevent it being stale?

monolithic aka Nicko1234 is simply the worst poster in the BBs board history. He acts like this really fair & balanced, reasonable person, best kinda fan when in fact he's just fanboy, as well as subtle potshot taker & passive-aggressive commentator.

Coolicious. 3D Did you catch it quickly due to hearing this vintage song in the 50s-60s, it's popular dance song back then? Or did you go by the clues listed in my reply? Either way, TY. Thumbs Up

Btw, goofy lyrics. Chap stands like tool waiting girl, bird flew above his head & blessed him with manure. The girl sees & dumps poor chap. She hates the bird fragrance at guy's head. Strangely, he doesn't go to wash his hair, just stands like tool.

JK, new ID riddle to you. I dunno who sings it, what the title says. Shortly, I used to record songs straight from tape recorder's radio to tapes. Sound is jolly clear when you record it that way, zero muddiness. But, that tape recorder stayed in town. Here, in the city, I got very ancient TR, right channel in the earphones does woodpecker noise, it gets in the way to hear songs distinctly. Without earphones it doesn't play music thru speakers. Only via earphones.

Found tapes, listened to each & this really cool song plays.
Its style is 50s-early 60s uptempo rock & roll.
Lead vocal channels usual rock & roll singer suspects.
By voice I can tell he's def. white.
The title he repeats in the chorus is either "were she boogie?", "bird ship boogie", "a version boogie" or similar. The verse is "I was standing there ... she was coming up across the street..." "[song title] fell right on my head" "she said hey baby..." "she was gone ... feeling mad about being cruel...".

Middle 8 is guitar solo, guitar plays with trembly sound. Playing in keyboard the notes H-C-Es-H(next octave)-same "H-C-Es"-B-again trio "H-C-Es"-As-F-As. H-H-As-F-As-F-As-H-H-As-F-As-Ges-Es-H-H-Es-F-As.
Chorus (Es) H-H-H-As (backing vocs h-h-h-as) [repeated twice] B-B-B-B. H-H-H-As.

Thanks in advance.

2Billy: Yes I read that the pic is from last year but the point stands - Jaymie really grew fast. Beautiful young lady. 3D Is she Ringo's fan, by chance? :D

I kind of like mike embracing his age. The mustache looks good on him for a change, too.
Mike embraced his age before just fine without the ugly mustache. It doesn't fit his type face. He'd better delete it. As to Christmas album - like Christmas music, curious what Mike & co. cover.

Isn't it, logically, the fault of everybody who gets easily influenced by peers? It's these people who create the problem when, if they weren't easily influenced, there'd be no problem. Which is to say, still not convinced how it's not "simple as that".
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / Welcome to the Smiley Smile board / Re: Welcome thread on: Yesterday at 01:11:41 AM
Is it Jaymie in 1st pic? She grew up fast!

2Jay: What you say is related to health. Being surrounded by healthy kids you distracted attention to the problems you've got by being normal, i.e. doing what kids in the class were into. That example differs than classic cases I talk about. When I went to school, kids there drank since 5th grade. I didn't. Kids hated me for it, quickly lumped me together with outsiders. Did I change attitude being pressured by kids? Ofc not. It's up to me to drink or not. & believe me, it was very easy thing to do, to be individual. As I said, if everybody hates me, what can I do - be slave of what they like? I didn't bat an eye. I'd been happy to be friendless at school. No big loss. Now, I got 2 nice girls as friends who agree with me 100% that the term "peer pressure" shouldn't even exist.

Ditto with smoking, social networking, going to disco/ parties, dating etc. - didn't/ don't do any of it. Do I regret missing out on this "fun" millions went thru? Negative. Everything I just said bores me big time. So...yep, I stand by my individuality & the point(s) made.
14  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: Pet Peeves on: July 18, 2018, 08:56:32 PM
It's simple to me, then it should be simple for everybody else. If you disagree, bring examples instead of writing that short answer which doesn't say anything to back it up.

There's a problem here in the US with baby bunnies being bought around Easter. People get tired of them and it usually doesn't end well for the bunny.
People see posts about piglets and they think, "how cute!" and get one. Of course the little piglet grows up to be a big pig, then what to do?
 yes before getting a pet people need to do their homework.
You got me. That's the point I brought/ made.

As for wanting to be liked, there is tremendous peer pressure in adolescence to "fit in."
Disagree, it sure looks like people in all ages try to fit in, act like sheep. & I don't get the term "peer pressure". It shouldn't be in the 1st place. Nobody should be pressed by what peers do around. It's them, not you. You do what you do, what everybody does musn't matter. Come on, folks! Keep your individualities intact. Disregard everybody else.

Yep, we got forgiving day. It's the best idea, it weirds me out that Americans didn't think up sth. like that. Brow I figured America is very creative country.

Respectively - don't care about Sinatra (& his daughter Nancy Sinatra), familiar with Vic Damone's songs, favorites galore, Four Freshmen really rule. Am going to listen to Four Freshmen right now in computer's Winamp library.

Yes, good reasons when people give up pets but, I meant - & stated as such - the case when people think it's fun to adopt pets, then they see they must feed them etc., they see it's difficult, quickly get tired of routine & throw them. I witnessed it many times. The other, good reasons don't interest me, or else I'd list them & phrase sentence as such. I didn't. I said strictly the cruel reason people give up pets.

Why did you try to fit in in the 1st place? Didn't you think like this "I'm going to be loyal to my individuality & completely dismiss what everybody else likes/ into etc. If nobody would make friends with me, no big deal, ha! I'd be glad, good for me! Again, ha!"

Cool to see you admitted that Beatles got schlock in their career. Good girl! If everybody else admitted it, I'd buy them candies.
19  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: What are you watching now?/Favourite Movie of the Moment on: July 18, 2018, 05:04:21 PM
Reading thread Lost Films, it looks like everybody wishes they're found. Question is "Why?". What makes people wish they be found. Lost films could be pure trash, you know? It's hilarious the way people make big deal about films they did NOT see. Ha.

Sing-songy. 2 despite the fact this is really annoying song.
21  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Pink Floyd Appreciation Thread on: July 18, 2018, 07:02:22 AM
Listened to Animals - it's well played, well executed, sung but, at the same time, it funnily isn't album I'd like to listen again.
& am really puzzled by universal agreement re: early Pink Floyd singles - "Arnold Layne" etc. *Each* of them. Everybody who hears them say they like them but I listened many times & again today - nope, nothing special there.
Anyhoo, appreciation - favorite Pink Floyd is Roger Waters.
22  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Songs you are obsessing over. on: July 17, 2018, 09:50:40 PM
Few psychedelic songs.

2Buckethead: when you finish answering song question in Reply #74, answer short fun survey I created, enjoy!

1. Etiquette says to use different fork & spoon when tasting different dishes. Would it be easy to memorize or you'd use the same?
2. Did you lose temper standing in line long? Haste smb. before you?
3. Tell the dearest thing about school. Any tricks you played to teacher/classmates when you studied at school?
4. Imagine. Boss tells you fine news - they say you inherit their boss duties but gives you time to think as they got the other 2 nominees. Would you say No can't handle duties or without hesitance Yes?
5. Is there any book that revealed sth. you never knew?

Would like to compliment cool threads titled "Al Jardine Appreciation". 3D

It's listenable OK. 2.
