    That certainly looks like the cover of the LYRE'S album. Very cool. Btw, based on your moniker, you should check out a band called THE CHESTERFIELD KINGS. There a retro band with a slew of cd's reflecting music of the mid and late 60's. Take my word, they're fabulous.

    Re: What is the story behind your moniker?

    I'm originally from New York and when I was a kid I loved riding the subways to the point that my parents wanted to move out to California because they were convinced that if we stayed in New York I would eventually kiss of college and decide to become a motorman on the NY Subway System.  My favorite line was the Brooklyn-Manhattan Sea Beach line which I loved to ride because of all those little mini-tunnels on the open cut line when they crossed under a street.  When I travel to New York I always make it my business to ride the Sea Beach, now called the Broadway Express in Queens and Manhattan and the SB in Brooklyn.


    When I occasionally post on a Mets or Yankee board with that handle I get a slew of inquiries because they all know what the Sea Beach is.

    My moniker is boring: hill is a disguised version of my name and 55 represents the year I was born.

    One other recommendation you may already be aware of. It's called THE COOLEST SONGS IN THE WORLD. It's comprised of 8 cd's and presented by Little Steven's Underground garage. Some excellent retro garage.


     


    And thanks for the heads-up; I'll check those out. Looks interesting.

    BTW, Notin, your image is my favourite here.  Please don't take any offence at this, absolutely none intended, but that picture of Moe Howard makes me think of you and always will.  The delicious irony is that his Stooges character was a complete moron while you are obviously very intelligent....but somehow you two are linked in my head.  I love surreality!

    Love the original dirtdogs, Trott Nixon!!!  I could not lump most of the 2013 teamin with him...  I just love a Charlie Hustle type guy, who may be short on natural ability, but makes up for it with "true grit!"  Pedey is the current king of Dirtdogdom!  Still the most under-rated player in the mlb!!!!


     


    As for the picture.....  not from money, but we always spent 2 - 3 weeks on the Cape each summer growing up.  I will make it back some day for good, as I am currently living in exile in Oregon.  the folks retired on the Cape, & I go back every summer, just as I did as a kid.  Happy Days!

    I got the idea for this thread because 37stories got me interested in wondering what that name was about, if anything


     




    I wrote a book and 37 stories is part of the title.  I make my money, what little of it there is,  ghostwriting and editing and I have a few books of short stories published.  When I am on here it means I am screwing off in a big way.


    I used to be Snakeoil. That didn't get banned I just started using this one because I enjoy confusing people. I never post on more than one account at a time, but I do switch it up every few years.


    Where are you going to be in Maine? I am in Portland, on the East End, which has probably changed a lot since you were around. There are a couple bars around this way if you find yourself in the area.

    Copied & pasted from my profile if you haven't seen it!


    Born Portland, Maine. Spent 21 years in New England. Catholic schools-Priests asked if I got the calling (to be a priest)but instead got the calling for the draft so chose(USMC). Lifelong Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, Patriots fan. Been in the other BAY AREA past 45 years(SF) and as there is a rivalry similar to NY-Boston with SF and LA, the sports bars here in No. Cal. have fans rooting for us as if I were in Boston. Still go to New England once-twice per year to visit family---extremely partial to better seafood on East Coast & better sports fans as here they are more fair weather. Had a great run though with Joe Montana/Steve Young & 49ers and recently the SF Giants 2 World Series victories and now the Warriors to hopefully, along with the Clippers, keep the Lakers out of the playoffs. Remember Wrigley's Spearment Gum Ad ? Double your pleasure, double your fun. I get almost as much pleasure watching Yankees lose as I do watching the Sox win and ditto for the Celtics winning & Lakers losing !!! When Sox & Celtics don't play NY & LA, I root for any team that does!
