I can't believe you guys finally found my post about the kids riding their skateboards on top of the abandoned Marine Stadium. This is something that should get everyone involved to make a skateboarding park that takes these kids away from this abandoned stadium. (Dec 19, 2008 | post #12)
I email my clients important docs all the time with time sensitive data and action required and guess what 70% of them don't read email. Are they from another plantet? Some can't keep the same email name either. (Aug 4, 2007 | post #11)

I have to figure out what you are doing. Keith Chords, this I need to learn. Thanks for the info! (Aug 4, 2007 | post #101)

1. Can't walk past their computer without checking for their Emil. 2. Having their blackberry turned on and on the bed stand. 3. Check email after every golf shot, during every commercial. My solution is to send myself an email for every item I need to put on my todo list. Then when I check email, I am checking my todo list. And it isn't fun to see all the stuff I have to do, so it keeps me from checking it too much. (Aug 4, 2007 | post #9)
So they kill the poor guy who takes poloroids of plush size tush, and then, did I read this right, they buy coffee colored slippers?????? I think the writer of this story, had some Starbucks while he wrote this story. Or was it the people he interviewed at the store? (Aug 4, 2007 | post #1)
Lyrics can just be a metaphor for the writer of things way to personal to actually write. If I wrote a song that basically laid out all my problems with a person, it might be good for the audience, but it could kill my relationship with the real person. So you have to hide some meanings in the lines, that are for you only, so the words could be totally random but inside is this deep authentic message to yourself. And if that message comes through, the audience will wonder why they like the song so much when it has so few and sometimes really simple confusing first layer meaning. Its the layers and layers of meaning that your wrote for yourself that come through. Like from Led Zep, stairway to heaven: "If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed, its just a spring clean for the May Queen," or something weird like that. We all get the meaning of something there, even if we have no idea what they really meant. And the listener can attach his own private metaphors to any lyric. The lyric is just there to attach private messages to. (Aug 2, 2007 | post #90)
You can't shut singers up. This is curse and a problem. (Aug 2, 2007 | post #89)
Family Jewels, You know for a karaoke singer, the words are on the screen, but after you get good, you realize you should never look at the screen, but totally connect with the audience or look like you are in your own world of emotion. After singing a song on stage in front of a crowd a few times, the words are stuck in your brain forever. But I print them out and memorize the words like a poem if I really want to do the song right. Speak them to people with no music and they lock into your brain, and you see there are very few words usually. Sometimes you see there are so few words you begin to doubt that the audience could be so entertained. You have to remember that the passion comes through beyond words. Also I can ad lib better words in front of an audience that I could never plan on, based on the people and some kind of magic that happens between performers and their audience. You basically know what they want to hear or not hear. (Aug 2, 2007 | post #88)
Hey you are so right, sing the song Start Me Up thinking that the waverunner will make a grown man cry. This is twist I could do and really be authentic. Thanks so much. This is now a go for me. I can even tell everyone before I sing, its a waverunner song. too cool... .......who knew i could find this kind of advice on topix with insomnia (Aug 2, 2007 | post #87)
Is that what Keith is doing? Thanks! I need to study Keith Richards style. If only people would pay me to just ride my waverunner, play guitar, write songs, sing and record. Its not going to happen in this life, next life for sure. Don't ask why but the two artists I have studied most are Tom Petty, and Elliot Smith, and Nick Drake. If you ever get depressed Elliot Smith will make you believe depression is a beautiful place to be. I mean that in a good way. He died in such a weird way. A steak knife to the heart, ask me more on this only if you want to know. (Aug 2, 2007 | post #86)
Can I really get away with changing the Line at a karaoke gig: You make a grown man cry to ?????? to: You make a grown (woman) cry Ride like the wind at double speed I'll take you places that you've never, never seen Start it up Love the day when we will never stop, never stop Never stop, never stop Tough me up Never stop, never stop, never stop I don't think its going to work so well. I know this because I try to do the same thing with Tom Petty songs, and Creedence Clearwater, Aerosmith and it doesn't always work. I should do Heart, you are right. Crazy on You, that song would work well at karaoke. But I am always on the mean mean machine riding like the wind, 2007 Yamaha FX High Output Cruiser Waverunner. Its a 160 horses on water, or 60 miles per hour on totally, I mean totally flat water. http://www.yamaha- motor.com/waverunn er/products/models pecs/351/0/specs.a spx I leave from Matheson Marina, run under Key Biscayne Bridge, head for Fisher Island, then maybe make a pitstop at Monty's Marina Miami Beach, then head for The Standard Hotel where two dolphins like to play tag with waverunners, and you can get a really good massage and sit by the most hip pool on Miami Beach, and then do the whole course back home. Riding a waverunner in Miami is the most amazing natural high. You could easily detox off any addiction, like cigaretts by doing this waverunner run every day for 28 days. Its a full body workout, especially if there is any chop in Biscayne Bay. (Aug 1, 2007 | post #78)
