It seems to me that you could have a good "cat fight" between the Spice Girls and the Pussycat Dolls, since it seems the only thing these two "bands" have going for them is their visual appeal.

Hey Burnzy, how goes it? Long time no talk.

Anyway, have you ever heard the song This Time Tomorrow by the Kinks? I haven't seen the movie, but it's on the soundtrack to The Darjeeling Limited, and KCRW has been playing it. Great, great song. Man, I've gotta get more acclimated with the Kinks canon.

How's life otherwise?

Hey, man.

Oh yeah, I believe I still have a vinyl copy of Lola 'n Powerman. Great album. I saw the trailer to TDL. I recall hearing at least one other Kinks tune, another of Lola 'n P, I believe. Anderson has used Kinks before. A lot of the early Brit wave made its way onto the soundtrack of Rushmore.

Been hittin' at a local pitch 'n putt on weekends and the occasional driving range during the week. Played a short nine hole a few months ago, but pro'lly won't take it up regularly. Don't wanna cut into the disc golf playing time.

Watching any baseball? Great game going on right now.

As a tribute to the days when the end of the baseball season signified the end of summer (well, kinds sorta in my latitude).

es-gee

Just got thru reading One Train Later by Andy Summers. The guy has an interesting story to tell and he is a pretty good writer in an entertaining way. Thought I'd mention it as the theme of Lola versus Powerman... runs thru this enjoyable read.

Burnsey?

Dude, how many times have you gone through this " I don't like my persona anymore" thing?

Oh, that. Sorry. I was burnzred going back to the nytimes days. Little Big Man being my favorite flick, I took the name of one of the characters, namely Burns Red in the Sun. I had no particular reason to pick him as my persona other than he was a character in LBM. sgrobin and I go back to the golf forum at nytimes. I reckon I'll always be burnzy to him.

Truth is, Chauncey, of Being There fame, is pro'lly closer to my true, live, in the flesh 'n blood persona. Shouldn't have shut that account down, but hey, stuff happens.

Apologies again. Too many phone calls and e-mails coming at me in the last hour. How dare people bother me with bidness on a Friday (smile).

I don't get into golf much other than watching the Majors and an occasional compelling tourney. We had a group over at nytimes that used to like to go off-topic and discuss movies, music, potent potables and such. sgrobin and I are the only two that made it over here. If I'm still around next spring, I'll contribute, but I don't play much ball golf. I just like talking about the tourneys and then just as they are unfolding.
