  • I was thinking of "April, Come She Will" but I think you're right about Scarborough Fair too. Let's call it a draw. (But I think they played "Mrs. Robinson" when Ben was trying to get to Elaine's wedding.) By the way, I hear the author is broke and…
  • 1. Scuba gear is correct. 2. Try again.
  • And for the triple bonus round, two questions: 1. What did Benjamin (Dustin) get for a birthday present later that same summer? 2. What song was being played while he was driving north from LA to Berkeley? This should separate the true Graduate m…
  • It was an Alfa Romeo.
  • "For What It's Worth." It's probably been in the soundtrack of more films about the Vietnam War protest era than any other song. For those of us of a certain age and persuasion, it was the soundtrack of our lives and remains very evocative. I'm …
  • Back on the Chain Gang - The Pretenders
  • Given the measurements, I thought it was "Baby Got Back", but no, the lyrics didn't check out.
  • "Like A Virgin" -- Madonna
  • If you get a chance, check out the song "The Ballad of the Kingsmen" by Todd Snider -- you can google it. It's a talking song with a musical chorus that starts out being about the public reaction to Louie Louie and then goes all over the place. A co…
  • Louie Louie -- The Kingsmen.
  • She’s got a competition clutch with the four on the floor, And she purrs like a kitten till the lake pipes roar. And if that ain’t enough to make you flip your lid, There’s one more thing, I got the pink slip daddy

  • Well, at least I knew it was in the general area of transportation.
  • Wild guess: Convoy?
  • I can get cheap SWA tickets from Austin to Portland so count me in. Probably more realistic than a cruise.
  • All this talk about cruises and no action. Am I the only one on this forum who would actually make the time and fork over my own money to go on a cruise with a bunch of people I've never met before? I thought so.
  • This would be an example of fomenting discontent and making trouble.
  • I agree that we need more frequent quizzes. I totally tanked on this one, so just in case I ever suffer from delusions of adequacy I'd like the opportunity to take a quiz to snap me back to reality.

  • Well, personally I've always preferred the poker-playing dogs, but I figured it had to be Elvis in Tennessee.
  • > >James' >office art which we all know is mostly >lithographs of dogs playing pool, poker, and >whatnot. > I was thinking more along the lines of Elvis on velvet.
  • I beg your pardon! I happen to love my age. :~~
  • There are a few I'd like to take back....wonder if I could get my number lowered??
  • A large, shiny, black bird** -- related to crows, I think -- that overpoulate my area...and other areas too, evidently. They make a large array of earsplitting, surreal noises and generally make a mess. ** This describes the males. The females are…
  • Larry, if that grackle thing works out, I would like to personally export several million grackles from Austin to the Minnesota destination of your choice.
  • [font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON 02-20-06 AT 08:37AM (CST)[/font][br][br]Marc, you're correct that achievement comes from challenge. No question. But that's not the issue here. The issue is disingenuousness and incivility. People with l…
  • What is going on with this thread and/or this "conference" of the Forum? The last actual post shown is from 11/08. On the list of threads in the Using the Forum conference the last post is shown as being from 11/09. And on the Lobby page, there hav…
  • Don't fix it! I find this to be one of the Forum's most endearing quirks. I've enjoyed my many brief, virtual relocations to Oregon, Florida, and Mississippi, among others. Given the way my summer's going, it'll be as close as I get to actual travel…
  • Never mind; I got a new password. Thanks.
  • Too easy --- guess that's why I didn't try it. Also, I was never asked to log in because I was usng the link in the daily "digest" e-mail to access the Forum, which I guess allows read access but not posting. Come to think of, I haven't had to log i…
  • Yes, it was reverse discrimination: A recipe for disaster. We knew we were whipped, so we folded. It was all based on a half-baked idea -- pretty much out of the frying pan and into the fire. Although we had egg on our faces, we didn't stew about it…
