    when someone does a new take on a song dear to me i usually have hard time dealing with any departure from
    from the original score.

    These guys just slip right past all my reservations. My mind isn't preoccupied with how it use to sound.
    This is an accomplishment, this is new ,music!

    got some time to kill?



    So I watched this i came to me not for the first time something that seems quite strange to me..

    Rock and roll never earned to dance...Hear me out now
    Everything we see in this doc IS NOT rock and roll, Sure the music is undeniable
    but the dancing, Hell the dancing is pure Jitter-bug. From the 30's and 40's

    I use to wonder why a music form that worships at the alter of rythum and beat never really evolved a dance of it's own.

    Today it came to me as the quite obvious sometimes does. Jitter-bug is a dance perfectly suited to Rock.

    So now my question is why did rock dancers so seldom display the exuberance and honestly the excellence of the swing Jitter-bug dancers?

    They use to toss lovely young girls about like they were rag dolls.Their feet so fast they could sweep a dance floor clean and shine it in seconds! Collage aged dancers looked like pro's. In the swing era dances invested a good deal of time to learn and honestly to get into shape to toss girls about without injuring them.

    The steps and "Moves" were intricate and highly evolved But as rock aged and grew more refined
    Jitter-bug faded from the scene.

    Replaced with "play ground" dances like the Twist and the Bugaloo
    Nothing wrong with mindless and mind numbing dances, at lest you didn't have to listen to the music to do them. ":O}

    All this just seems odd to me. While music progressed dance took a nose dive.

    Rats, Netflix doesn't have it. Yes, I could greatly expand my access to movies on-line but I already pay far too much.

    i understand that they had gotten a lot heat by those who judge the past.

    i disagree on this basis. if they made a little white boy fall in love with the etnire cast, how much of a sell out can they be. i mean i was 5 or 6 years old and ifelt more kinship with these two men than I felt for hop along Cassidy and that's really saying something. in any case with my love and affection for what they gave me...



    i find their comedy both kind and gentle and in no way demeaning. they cared about each other, so they might care about me. just what i ws looking for at 5 or 6

    My memory can surely be faulty. I seem to remember a "Smile Honeychile so I can see where you're at" line. This wouldn't go well today.

    But today ain't then.

    We don't come across such wisdom every day.
    that it sings to us is an added blessing.

    thank you George
    i can just barely remember hearing it, but can't say i listened at the time.

    Leadbelly spent his life in prison. Leadbelly spent his life in music.
    Leadbelly spent his life morning the woman he killed.
    Leadbelly put this flower upon her grave
    Leadbelly loved Irene.

    i only remember one episode. mr peppers is held at gun point in a basement. he pulls out a stick of dynamite and holds a match to it. the crook freaks out but mr peppers reassures him

    dyamite won't explode unless it reaches at lest 350 degrees.
    the crook relaxes for a moment then

    how hot is a match?

    striking another match mr peepers replies

    'i don't know.'





    before there were nerds, there was wally cox, all the nerds that follow owe him a debt of gratitude

    No. But I tried to eye-phuck one once. Fittingly the buffalo out gazed me in a quarter of a second. One must know one's place in the natural order.

    I never really deciphered the verses. The chorus was easy and kind of said it all.

    i don't see the problem with the smile line. i'm pretty sure all my back friends in the past knew they were black and harder to see at night. They all had much better teeth than I.

    and i have to admit I was as interested in finding honey child as they were.":O}}

    or that smelly buffalo will show your place to you! LOl

    more interesting but equally foolish is to try and reach his heart and sing to him of your love.LOL
