Burnzy, it’s always ok to be in a Beatles mood. And a Kinks mood, for that matter. Starland Vocal Band moods – they’re ok on February 29.

Madupont, glad to be o’ service; that was one of those books I remember from back in the day. Never read it, but always wanted to….

And I’m reluctant to defend Larry King (actually, I’m less so since I’d like to see him get better ratings against the Hannity show on FOX), and maybe I’m interpreting that ‘George’ vs. ‘Ringo’ incident incorrectly, but this is my take: he asked Paul and Ringo about how they found out about John’s death. Now, this was a really odd question because it came out of nowhere and it was being asked during a sort of celebratory event, the one-year anniversary of LOVE. But Paul responded, and then Larry said,”George”. I interpreted this as him having wanted to find out from Paul about how he found out about George’s death, not that he was calling Ringo ‘George’. Maybe I’m wrong, but that’s how I saw it. Regardless, I really hope LOVE goes on tour; I would love to see it.

Yeah, but Larry King is still a doofus (smile).

The Beatles Love-in is really something.  Too bad John and George couldn't be around to enjoy it.  Can only imagine the royalties the ex-Beatles and their spouses get these days, with all the re-issues, tributes and compilations like Love

BTW, the new Traveling Wilburys box set is really fun to listen to and watch,

Listening to Lovett's Road to Ensenada reminds me a little of Tom Petty at times.

Road to Ensenada -> Tom Petty?

Sorry Dzimas; that's your third mistake. Three strikes, right across the plate.

Kidding.

Curious what my first two mistakes were, or if they were all contained within the same line?

Eh, I'd have to go back and review your posts, but I enjoy your writings so that might be difficult.

Just to clarify, you know I'm quoting from Her First Mistake on Ensenada, right?

I don't know dzimas, perhaps it's our generation but then again you have other  connections to enjoying Lyle Lovett's music.  He reminds me of a Frenchman in the Cajun country who caught sand fleas/chiggers and had to make his living playing New Orleans bars and who will always be disappointed in love.

"Uncle Larry" King is a doofus.  I hadn't watched him in many years until he made the connection to get the interview with "the Sean Bell widow", that's when I learned how doofus one can get.

Does anybody know where the term originated? Marlon Brando never got it quite right, as Wally Cox, who used to play Mr. Peepers ,used to tell it, on his room-mate in the Village. Brando always used to refer to "Dufo".  Which I think is kind of the equivalent of what  dzimas and whiskeypriest call a "duppa" or how do you spell that? One of you used it just recently.

Grobin, Hey Eugene is the best song on the album.  Doesn't quite carry the same weight as Sympathique, if weight is the right word, but it is fun to listen to.  Love their titles, especially "Dosvedanya mio bambino."
