    Damned F'ing right! I'm a MUCH better guitar player, writer, arranger and (now) conductor, at 50 than I EVER was at 25 (hoity toity Berklee jazz snob with my head up my a55.) But no one wants to even give the CD a listen, cuz, we're, OLD GUYS, now. I get it.  But WT-F?  I'm BETTER!

    i'm 25. teach me everything you know, and with our powers combined we can kick some serious a55. my band added a trumpet and a sax player, arrange us and play some lead!

    I couldn't help but notice you didn't list "promoter" among all the things at which you are awesome.

    More's the pity.

    Cool

    (and not for nuthin' . . .  but I should hope to Christ you're better at what you do after 25 years. What are  you looking for here . . .  a Lifetime Non-Acheivment Medal?"

    In a recent episode of "The Middle", the mum buys a big new HDTV for the purpose of watching the royal wedding.   On the day of the wedding, she gets up and turns on the tv, only to find that it's not working, and she begins to scream out for help from the rest of the family, all of whom are in bed. 

    The teenage daughter comes running out to the livingroom and cries out, "What happened?  DID JUSTIN BIEBER DIE??" 

    I'm not sure if this helps, Greg, but I thought it was pretty funny. 

    Cool

    I would give anything to be 50 again.

    Greg - you are just a young whippersnapper. Stop complaining

      Tongue out

    50 is the new 35, at least it is in my house.

    My question is:

    How does yogafriend feel about the fact that most of us are "old guys?"

    Nothing for nothing, but my most anticipated show of the summer (so far) is a four-day festival headlined by a band fronted by two guys who are 64 and 71, respectively:

    Bob Weir and Phil Lesh

    Also appearing at the same venue: Dr. John, Taj Mahal, Elvis Costello, Levon Helm and two other members of the Grateful Dead, Micky Hart and Bill Kreutzmann - none of whom are spring chickens by any means.

    Nevertheless, my nieces and nephews are constantly amazed that I keep up with "their" music, too.

    Well, what a little gem of a question.

    Not sure I'd call myself a kid, but I need to keep my vital stats offline for reasons of overall privacy and security.  Offline, I have no problem at all, and that includes my weight, which many women seem to thnk is more of a private issue than their age or salary.  :D

    I don't pick my friends according to their age, and I've always had friends of all ages.  Little kids talk to me like I am "one of them" and I can talk to a 75 year-old and be "all in", too.  An older woman started talking to me in CVS one day (we were reaching for the same item) and 15 minutes later she said she hoped she'd run into me again because talking to me was so much fun. She thought I was a kid, so that was nice, too.  :)

    But overall, what has made this my favorite forum is the topic (of course) and the forum members who give their input to the discussions.  If there is a priority in my life, it is to surround myself with ways to learn and people to learn from.

    So I stick around because you are all damn smart, entertaining, fun, and I learn from you.  We have discussions here and can disagree and it never becomes contentious or unpleasant, and that means a lot to me.  And you, Zilla, must be doing something "right" in the Sox forum to have attracted what seem to be top quality music lovers who have migrated here from that forum. Even though my knowledge is a mere fraction of what others have to offer, I do feel respected and valued for my contributions, and hope I bring that little feminine "thang" that rounds out the group.  :D

    jkj's random facts blow my mind...matty is probably the most well-read music fan i've ever communicated with in terms of covering all the bases and backing them up. jesse and zilla know their stuff too, and they have a pretty amusing back and forth routine going on.

    and of course, yoga...the glue that keeps these threads organized, from being tangent upon tangent upon tangent.

    i think i might have your age pegged to a 3 year range based on how strongly you feel about certain things or artists and little nuggets you have dropped throughout all your posts. clues, if you will.

    i am 25, i don't care who knows my age, bring it on Wink

    I feel strongly about ...?  OH, I know.  I feel strongly about being given credit when I am right.  A rare occurance, ha ha. 

    Not sure I'm the glue that prevents tangents (okay, sometimes) as much as I create a lot of threads that produce tangents.   I'd say both.  :)

    PS I should have said earlier, my main yoga mentor is 50-ish, and if you could see her body, well, let's put it this way, she's a good example of age being just a number.  Seriously, she is amazing; I see her all the time and I am in a constant state of awe.  My other yoga mentor just turned 41.  I can only aspire to be more like them; they provide infinite inspiration.  :)  

    I admit, I do love telling people who know litte about yoga that I can do advanced headstands "no sweat" (headstand from a straddle position) -- the reaction I get is awesome fun.  :)

    many thanks for the compliment, ph...

    ...right back atcha....


    [I'm just full of useless info; my wife is the same way.  She can name any 80s tune/artist within a couple of notes, and her sports trivia knowledge puts most guys to shame.  We have since been banned by both friends and family from EVER playing on the same team during parlor games.]

    Just to blow my own horn, I'm pretty good at trivia too. (Makes me think of The Move's song "Useless Information").

    My best subjects are entertainment and sports.

    There was a guy on the LL blog who used to talk about going  to a bar every week for trivia night.  Got a few other people interested.    BTW, I abandoned the blog a long time ago (variety of reasons) and it seems you gave it up pretty quickly, too.  Nice, fun people.  But so repetitive. 

    Do you mean King's in Allston/Brighton?

    I know I can't kick anyone's azz in trivia, but I can totally kick azz in yoga, and I'm firm on that.  Smile
