😆

While I do like the Cars, I never cared all that much about Cheap Trick. In the 80s I was largely listening to Robert Cray, Stevie Ray Vaughn, & also deepening my love & knowledge of classic blues & soul artists, from Robert Johnson to OV Wright to Son Seals to Irma Thomas.

Oh, & at a P-Funk concert in 84 I got cloned, & I've been a funkateer every since. I'm a soldier in Uncle Jam's Army for life.

🤔 Normal? I have no idea what that is, nor do I care to know. A "normal" person would not have amassed a CD collection so large, (after first having album & 45s collections numbering in the thousands each), that they stopped counting them at 10,000. And that was about twelve years ago. Suffice to say I have given consideration to changing my name to "Abby Normal". Or perhaps. just perhaps "Winslow Leach"...... 😆

Crow T Robot - and anyone else interested - there IS a documentary on the Dead End Kids/East Side Kids/Bowery Boys coming out soon. It features the full participation of the family members of the original actors, plus celebrities such as actors, comedians, musicians and playwrights who were influenced by this movie team and their work, as well as other celebrities who knew and worked with some of the iconic actors in the films. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3744254/?ref_=nm_knf_t1

Eh, I hope I'm wrong, but this Bowery Boys movie will never get made.

And now for a thread derail!

All right, another hardcore funkateer on the board!! I grew up in the 70s listening to and enjoying the P as it was released, but it was an 89 concert that truly and thoroughly cloned me.

BTW George has announced he is retiring from touring May of next year just shy of his 78th birthday, so catch the current tour cycle cuz that's it. He says it's about the music not him, I guess by which he is giving his blessing to the crew to tour without him. But some have already said that once George is out, they are too.

It's been an epic run (he's been performing for some 60 years!), considering the mayhem I'm frankly astonished he's even still alive! He deserves a break, so I'm not sad. Of course, I've been to 35-40 shows so I've got more memories than most to keep me going. Here's me and my daughter with the man last year:

I hope the film gets made.  Boy, I'd love to lock a lot of these current young punks in a room with the Dead End Kids and listen to them plead for their lives.

Imagine my bemildredness when I click on this thread and see, as my first sight of it, post #21.

Things, numbered one to two:

A) I am fulsome with curiosity about what word or phrase, in the o.p., went in the spot now occupado-ed by the bracketed "crime" in:
Bonnie Stephanoff, author of a book on homelessness during the Depression, wrote that it “graphically depicted the lives and longings of a group of boys who swam in a polluted river, cooked food over outdoor fires, smoked cigarettes, gambled, swore, fought, carried weapons and became entangled in [crime] on Manhattan‘s Lower East Side.”
Also) There is certainly a wonderful human story in the stuff from Broadway to the bitter ends and in my mind it centers on Gorcey and I don't want it to have trouble because cursory wisdom is he was a womanizing and petty drunk.

Even if it winds up as a Three-Stooges-biodrama-style junior high level sequence of recreated movie bits interspersed with boiled down high points from their personal lives ("Gee, Abraham Lincoln, are you going to free the slaves?" "Yes, Horace Greeley, and you can put that in your newspaper.") I would lie in wait to watch it.

It's going to make Ben Hur look like an epic.
