Come out to Lake Fairfax on December 8th and enjoy some Scud Fries while you heckle the racers. The Bike Lane and MORE are partnering to help raise funds for Scud's recovery. Certified Scud Fry technician's will be working Scott's kitchen to make the world famous fries for hungry spectators and racers alike. ALL proceeds will go directly to Scudfries.org to aid in the recovery of our dear friend.
So, come on out, enjoy the race, have some Scud Fries and support Scott. BTW, the proceeds from the race go to support the trails at Lake Fairfax. Talk about a double win!
The Smiths, The Cure, Depeche Mode... so many cool bands that I may have been embarrassed to like because the "punk kids" may not think that they are cool ah... ride the wave? New Wave vs. Punk... not quite a subculture civil war but it may have had some road bike/mountain bike or skier/snowboarder type clashes
Bryan Ferry: Boys and Girls perhaps the best make-out album of all time or so we seemed to think in college when I lived on 3rd Right in Dorchester Hall at St. Mary's College of Maryland this record came out in 1985 so we were not that far after its release it may have been 86-87 or 87-88 when a cluster of had a few communal items there was a round table with no legs that would get rolled from room to room the room with the table usually hosted a party of sorts then there was Bryan Ferry Boys and Girls that album would be passed around requested, borrowed, coveted, and maybe even bargained for your girlfriend is coming down this weekend? you may want to put your request in early I can not recall I think that the album belonged to John or Steve Heritage or at least one of the lacrosse players from third center Bryan Ferry was high on the playlist when people were going one on one with couples on the couch but games of quarters and thumper were played with a mix from the college classics like Steve Miller on to The Cure... The Cult... Soundgarden... and even the Bad Brains... then back to The Eagles and Boston it was St Mary's College of Maryland in the 80's a very Maryland crowd a little less than urban more Old Bay than Urban St. Mary's College was in the news again last week... same topic... decreased enrollment interesting http://gwadzilla.blogspot.com/search?q=governor%27s+cup http://gwadzilla.blogspot.com/search?q=smc and of course Boys and Girls by Bryan Ferry http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCLguMAcEm0 and yes... Roxy Music is Roxy Music and it is cool to say that I preferred Roxy Music to Bryan Ferry but it just was not so I was more into Bryan Ferry's work solo rather than with Roxy Music although Roxy Musics have some timeless classics
The Smiths on YOUTUBE http://www.youtube.com
I saw the Smiths at The Warner Theater on their first American\US Tour to my recollection that was 1985 or so spring of 1985 from what my mental image creates
fantastic showa one of my all time favorite live shows sad that I reminise about my top five live shows of all time addmitting that there will be no more shows in the top five
as that is an experience of youth to feel music at such an intense level is for the young another reason why it is so sad that youth is wasted on the young so rarely do people appreciate the moment
a so often what we think is the worst of times turns out to be the best of times
SHOWS fantastic randomness when I pull up this tangent SHOWS on the Gwadzilla Page http://gwadzilla.blogspot.com/search?q=shows Johnny Marr was amazing with the Smiths and then also with Bryan Ferry saw Johnny Marr with Bryan Ferry at Constitution Hall a great show lots of great shows lots of music durning that era of my life music is good I think I need more music in my life more music less television
80's yes... definitely 80's and lots of dancing high school dances the drinking age in DC was 18 some bars did not seem to care underage drinkers were their business or maybe they thought we were college kids either way... lots of dancing more dancing than drinking although there was some drinking
I remember growing up... Sundays meant a few things yard word... televised football games... dad's home made pizza with the Chef Boy R Dee kit... and 60 Minutes not every segment entertained me many did I do recall always looking forward to the close with Andy Rooney Best of Andy Rooney http://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-best-of-andy-rooney/
