BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD
OUTSIDE OF SOCIETY - THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE
What's with all the nostalgia all of the sudden?

This morning, after I'd had my coffee and gotten Cole to school, I came back home to start my daily routine. I got Avery squared away, and decided I needed some background music. I fired up Winamp and made a playlist of oldies songs. Al Stewart, Stevie Wonder, The Manhattans, The O'Jays, The Who, The Commodores, Otis Redding, Toto, Heart, Boz Skaggs, Emmylou Harris, Allman Brothers Band, Bob Seger, Brenton Wood, Dan Fogelberg, James Taylor, Carole King, Carly Simon, Little River Band, Juice Newton, Linda Ronstadt, Gordon Lightfoot, George Benson, you name it. I have no idea why I wanted to hear that music, aside from the fact that I love it. No special reason.

I'm working on my ScrapBook and adding tons of pictures to it, and in my search I have discovered pictures I haven't seen in years. A lot of memories I'd all but forgotten, but all good ones. Then later, after I'd taken care of some other stuff, I took a break to have some lunch. I turned the TV on to watch the news, but it was all stuff I ddin't care to watch - so I'm flipping channels and I came across something I had not seen in years, one of the cheesiest movies I've ever seen in my life. It's this movie that my older sisters dragged me to see when I was about Cole's age, this Linda Blair movie about skating called... *gulp*... Roller Boogie. This movie is so bad, it's pure 70's cheese. Which is why watching the last 30 minutes or so of this movie I was laughing my monkey ass off. This movie was the shit in its day. I remember being interested in the skating part of it, especially the trick skaters. It touched off about 6 years worth of skating on my part, on roller skates and later on skateboards.

Ah, memories.

Isn't it great when a laugh like that drops right into your lap! Hugs my friend - hoping to see you very soon. Getting ready for work at the moment, but will be dropping in tonight or tomorrow to see your pics.... You've given me something to look forward to!

"Roller Boogie"... Sounds like it belongs in a Soul Coughing song... :D

PS: Nice scrapbook! You're one good-lookin' fella.

I'm not familiar with their music. I remember them opening for Dave Matthews Band one of the four times I've seen them, but I was way too stoneed for their set, so I don't recall.

Thankies!

I've heard they suck live.

They're an interesting group tho'. The song in question is off el Oso, but I forgot which one. (It's been awhile since I listened to them)
