Has it started yet? How's Pele' doing? I'm working on it, Autie. I've got a ripe batch in the still and many 'teens of meth brewing in the bathroom. I did an 8 ball when I woke up this morning. Right now I'm hearing "Jump Into the Fire" by Harry Nilsson blaring in my head, and every time I look out the window I see helicopters and Feds racing toward my house looking for Kim Chee. I'll get back to you. Any body have any valium blue? You can climb a mountain You can swim the sea You can jump into the fire But you'll never be free You can shake me up Or I can break you down Whoa-o-o-o-, whoa-o-o-o- We can make each other happy

You can jump into the fire

Heads up. Making sure this gets more coverage. Joyce's son is missing. Last seen at his home May 26th. Truck found at Longview Lake,(Mo) Mouse Creek Boat Ramp on June 2nd. She's posted a blog, but I'm putting it here so more will see it. If you can repost it on your FB, please do. http://www2.ljworld.com/weblogs/musin...

And you can make a tinyurl to send out a tweet, any bit might turn up a lead. I know you all are masters at this. Let's make it happen.

I don't follow soccer. But I was saddened by the story about the death of Mandela's great-granddaughter after the concert there.

I think Matt Damon is playing Stinkaroo this weekend. Aren't all actors entitled to a music career? Just look at Kevin Costner, unless you can avoid it. He has a soul patch now. I think his idea is to dip it in the oil in the Gulf until it's all soaked up. Boy, kids...I think he just turned 17.

"Levon Helm made some movie appearances.....wasn't he in Coal Miners Daughter? I pretty much quit talking to dead guys too."

Levon put out two albums last year. He's playing Bonnaroo this weekend.

I was pretty sure it was Levon Helm. That guy is cool. About Bob's age, still truckin'. I wouldn't mind seeing him, but I'm pretty much on a Bob Dylan budget. I wanted to finally see Carlos Santana at Starlight next month, but the decent seats are too expensive.

Levon Helm is alive and will be in Westport in July for a concert. I may go. He was in Coal Miner's Daughter, The Right Stuff and Shooter. Good one Andini!

Are you excited about the start of the soccer World Cup?

I was born excited...if you know what I mean?

I'd rather go see The Band at a casino. Most of them are dead. Richard Manuel hanged himself in '86, one guy died of cancer, Robbie Robertson won't talk to any of them. I think the dude from Arkansas is still alive. They got some mileage off of "I Shall Be Released" by Bob. I'm not crazy about bands with a drummer that sings. Take note, Dan Henley(I know it's Don, I'm just dissing him).

Come on Andini, share with us about how nobody likes soccer, good day for that one. No, not excited about World Cup, but will jump on band wagon if we win. Yep, fair weather fan, same with Royals. Best thing is, took the day off and have a fridge full of Bud and an almost full bottle of Jack. Hic...

spacehog, autie just got a "The Band" flashback with the song they did on the Easy Rider soundtrack.....you know those damn Canadians played a lot with your boy on tour back in those days...so now The Band can be another spacehog menomic device.

I hate soccer. I could care less.

More power to those who like it. But, not for me. I am all football and golf and some basketball when I am really bored......

autie 3 years, 10 months ago

Ok, I'm back. Damn R_I. When a guy has got go, he's got to go...and that can be pretty exciting at times, porch or not. In fact, come to my house and stay out in the front yard....it will help keep those armadillos at bay. TOB, you really ought to take a trip to dictionary.com on that one...might come in handy when you and the other guy are monster trucking in the back yard.

and snap said thin pancakes!!! Viva la crepe!! What was the question again? Something about cups? No, I only watch World Cup Soccer by proxy...I have to remove carpet and pad this weekend, then go mow, then go fishing, then go drinking....no time for "football". Unless Manchester United goes to the PAC 10.

I am as excited about the World Cup as I am about micturating off the porch.

But it is Hug Holiday Day. They are free, and I am a touchy-feely guy, then tomorrow is Loving Day. So I got that going for me, which is nice.

Oh boy. You bet. Those U2 teaser commercials really got me hooked. Why can't Boner quit trying to save Africa and just sing "One". That's a really nice song.

Growing up in Germany, soccer was the first team sport I remember playing. In the early days of pro soccer in this country I was a Tampa Bay Rowdies fan. That said, I have to admit I don't really pay much attention to the sport any longer. If the US team advances beyond a round or two, I'll start watching the games, but I'm a "homer." If and when the US loses, I'll quit watching.

Hey spacehog! Come on out to Lecompton's Territorial Days,June 25 and 26! They won't be serving free liquor, but I'll make sure you get some.Liquor that is. You're on your own for anything else! Had a lady ask me if she knew me a few years back, when I said I didn't think so she said,"Should I?"

Biggest difference between small towns and big cities? The undesirables are easier to avoid in the big cities. Out here everyone lives within rock throwin, distance of each other. That's why we don't build glass (out)houses!

Bring a turtle for the turtle races! Load it up with steroids and caffeine, I guarantee you'll have a winner!
