One of the guys I do work for, Bruce, is a rich guy who is also a burnt out hippy. All of his music is stuck at about 1974 at the newest. So he always invites me to his social mixers and often just to have dinner.
I'd been over for dinner 2 weeks ago, just me, him, his wife, and his daughter. About a week afterwards, I get this frantic email from his wife Kay. It's a disaster! Bruce can't find his bottle opener! I'm like, "what opener?" Oh it's the one that was hand carved by Trappist Monks while brewing ale in Manchuria, or some such story she tells me. I'm thinking "what the hell?" Kay says, "he's been searching all over for it!" So even though I have no clue what she's talking about, I want to be a good friend. I take the description of the opener and proceed to search every nook and cranny in my car interior and trunk- no opener... Search the pockets of any clothes that I may have been wearing- no opener... Even search my own kitchen drawers in case someone hypnotized me to steal this prized bottle opener- not there.
So just this afternoon I'm driving home, and out of the blue I remembered that we had used my Mendocino Brewing Co. keychain opener because he couldn't find some opener that he desperately wanted to show me....*Then it all came back to me*... So I called Kay just now, and I asked her "are you on a wireless?" She says yeah...
So I said "Kay- Go to the front door. OK, open the door and go outside.(she's all like WTF?) Just do it! Are you out? Good, go to the guest house- Go up stairs- Alright Kay, hang a left in the upstairs bathroom. Now open the top right drawer by the sink. Is that ugly brown opener the one you want?"
She's like YES, HOW THE HELL DID YOU, WHAT'S IS...? I said "Kay, your husband is a little sketchy when he's under the influence of Herbal Essence. That's where he put it 4 months ago when I came to watch the Cream Reunion DVD with him. You might want to keep him from shopping for household knick-knacks while he's loaded as well! ;^)
Hey! I said only to read it if you're bored! Don't blame me!!!
LOL! Cream Reunion DVD??? When did they have a reunion?lol Entertaining story, Mr. SS.
Hey, a thought...there are also a lot of those free forum hosting sites out there. Invite only, we could have secrets and privacy.(now that sounds naughty)

I'm not laughing--you're thirty--that's young! I'm 38--that equals "too old to be on MySpace". No, he's my repairman! I won't share! And Crossville is way out of his repair route, I'm sure! lol
Jen, you would be surprised how "old" some people are on there;) I only use it to keep in touch with a few old friends, oh and stalk John Mayer...

Stalking John Mayer? Good girl Sarah! You know, John is totally influenced by all the great rock/blues guitar players from the Cream era- Jimi Page, Jeff Beck, and Clapton. Also some of the blues greats like BB King or Buddy Guy. But of course Mayer's biggest influence was Jimi Hendrix. Some of the substance of Johns music is a little light around the edges for me, but he's a great player and a nice young guy. If you have Direct TV, they are playing John Mayer live from Webster Hall in New York for free all weekend! Recommended!

Really, any one of those "McForum" programs would work! It'd be fun to have pix in the posts!

How funny! I've been meaning to ask you what kind of music you play. Cream--now that brings back memories...no, you naughty thing, I know they were a band! Eric Clapton is awesome. OK, you're in charge of finding us a good invite-only blog or community & telling us what to do & we'll do it. But only if you have the time. I know what you mean about IM. My son's little girl friends are always popping up when I'm working: "Hi, Jared!" His reply: "Sup?" as in what's up? He thinks he's too cool. I swear. So I always say "No, this is Jared's mom" just to embarrass him! So are you bored tonight? That sounds like a lame pick-up line doesn't it? lol

LMAO! I think I'll stalk Travis Barker. Just kidding! But I do like them a little edgy! I just can't do MySpace when my son's begging me to do it. I'm considering it now that I know he can make his private & only let people he knows contact him. I told him I would give him a decision tomorrow. One of his girl friends IM'd him tonight & said only "lossers" (quote) don't have MySpace pages. I told him maybe she should spend more time on spelling & less time on IM & MySpace!

I wish Jimi Hendrix would come back to life. I'd be his girlfriend & smoke hash with him & stuff. OK, you can tell I'm bored tonight!

Ah-ah! No wonder you read my goofy little pothead story. So It's safe to assume then that you don't have Direct TV- cause you would be watching John crank out some sweet guitar licks! You could always do like Jen and fire up a doob- No?

I look closer at the jconserv- Pretty cool! what is your little group about?

I play lots of different kinds of music Jen. My biggest heyday was in 1986, I had a song I wrote, produced and performed get airplay for a few months on the college stations in L.A. They even played it a bit on the big commercial stations KROQ in LA, and 91X in SanDiego, but it didn't make a billboard position.

If you had broadband email, I could send it to you!!!

Oh, I've watched it already, about 50 times;) Don't forget about his other great influence, S.R.V. Have you given his "Trio" album a spin? Pretty good stuff. He also played the guitar for the Chicks song "I Hope" for Katrina relief. I think he's evolving into a wonderful bluesy artist and being extremely easy on the eyes does not hurt one bit!

I don't think I have been telling Jimmy No either:)
My group is just a little horsey thing, but we really haven't had a lot of technical problems with that hosting site.

Hey Jen, is that your son Jared who is really active on the "kids topix" here with all the little girls chasing him around??? If that's him, he's sure getting his stud practice in- LOL! Hmmm, I just found a version of "To Sir With Love" by Vonda Sheppard and Al Green of all people, buried in my unsorted mp3 pile... Wow! Those voices work together!! Pretty damn good!!!

OH absolutely yes Sarah- The SRV influence! Sounds like you have some quality musical tastes girl! I saw SRV 4 weeks before he died at the Benson & Hedges Blues Festival in Costa Mesa, CA. Where he was joined by Joe Cocker, John Lee Hooker, BB King, and the Johnny Otis Show, featuring Suggie Otis. I was soon very grateful that I happened to catch that one. They all got on stage and jammed together for over an hour at the end. What a memorable show.

Yeah, I was gonna say you know that was me!! I should have been a sixties flower child. Ah, but I do have broadbad e-mail--username + ISP that shows up sometimes. Send it to me!! 1986--memories, memories! That's the year I graduated from high school! I've got a good little buzz going myself! What are you partaking of tonight?? My computer is acting crazy for some reason. It might make me go crazy! Later, mister--Jen

We should try it--it would be fun--we'll have to let Stacey & Maggie know. Poor Maggie! I think she's having a lot of problems with her daughter & her mom being in the hospital within the past 2-3 weeks! Yeah, Travis messed himself up when he got with Paris--even if they just made out--yeah right! Now he's tainted. Yeah, I like the tattoo shows a lot. Some of those guys, YUMMY is all I can say! Like the new picture--another glamour shot? It's amazing how transformable you are!! lol

It better not be him! I'll have to get with him! I remember my parents having the Dr Zhivago soundtrack album when I was a kid. Their albums really influenced my tastes: The Who, Pink Floyd, Beatles, Elton, Eagles. They belonged to one of those Ronco Record Clubs but then they must have hit the big time because Elton & the Eagles were on 8 track! My first car was a '78 Grand Prix--with an 8-track player--I had to have one of those cassette adapters to play tapes! lol This is making me laugh remembering it. My dad (I call him & my husband Sanford & Son-In-Law) always got the lamest things! Our first VCR was a Beta version & it was so embarrassing having to go into video stores & say "Do you carry Beta?". We were such dorks! lol
