duffblue: Turning 24 in a couple of weeks, scary to think middle school kids have no idea why we're in the middle east. I remember watching the towers for down from the GWB.

SithLord: Earguy: vudukungfu: Earguy: I wasn't the best at keeping my stubs

Crap. I've got stubs from Elton John when he was "experimenting" with women.

I saw the tour in Tampa, but all the tickets back then looked like this.

[i.ebayimg.com image 548x171]

$11.50 for a ticket? Fark me! I paid almost $75 to go to a show back in October.


Crap. I bought three tickets to Elton john and rented a tux. So did my best buddy.
We each took two 13 year old girls and rented a cheap limo for the show.
Front row center.
/Got upstaged my the one other dude in High School who was called in to be EJ's piano tuner for the event and was onstage before the show and called out to us sitting there.

//Got called up to front row center and asked if I wanted a front row center in trade for my GA ticket for Jethro Tull or. curtain #1, be onstage with him and play a rubber fish.

???
/// took the seat, because he was playing a mandolin that night and that. is. My instrument.


Went to the after party with my pal's pass and didn't get home until noon the next day.
If I could figure out how to dial a Russian phone #, I'd have gotten laid.

Oh, the ticket prices were ridiculously low.  I remember passing on some shows because tickets were $17.  I saw the Rolling Stones (Tattoo You tour), with opening acts Van Halen and Journey for about $35.  Pat Benatar on her first album tour was $4.98.

My husband told me that when I turn 50 he was going to trade me in for two 20-year-olds; I asked him why he wanted to disappoint two women when he can just disappoint one.

Diogenes: cretinbob: "I woke up" suspiciously absent

"I woke up twice in the middle of the night to pee" is more like it for me.


I lol'd. For me it's the chorus of pops and clicks my joints make whenever I use a stairwell or make a sudden pivot. It's a combination of having my ass kicked playing football in high school (apparently I wasn't very good) and a series of motorcycle accidents. I'm 38 but sound 65 when I'm moving around.

She's still under $5.
And not just for a tour.

I rebought an important guitar from my past. I didn't know it's age when I first bought it, but thanks to the internet I found it was made in 1993. I had pawned it back in 1999.

Different pawn shop, same street. And I paid less today than I pawned it for.

Most of the concerts in the Tampa area were all general admission seating, so I never had that stamp, but in some venues with reserved seating, there may be a beam or support partially blocking the view of the stage.  These were often given away as freebies (radio station, promoter) or sold to squeeze every penny out of a gig.

Something like this would get you a stamp:

Hey!  Me too!  My dad arranged our entire vacation around the moon shot.  Saw the liftoff in Florida, took the travel trailer out west.  He made sure we were in a city that had good TV reception (Dallas) for the moon walk, and we were in Houston's Mission Control for splash-down.

Funny thing to me is how different the Saturn V rocket sounded compared to the Space Shuttle.  On TV I didn't notice much difference.

vudukungfu: As a 56 year old cross between Brad Pitt and Leo DeCaprio, I don't feel old.
When my 48 year old rock star neighbor and pal tries to hit on a 23 year old waitress and she rebuffs him, I don't feel old. When I go back for lunch the next day and she remembers me as the guy with no cell phone glued to his ear in a self important posture and didn't stare at her tits, and comes on to me, and I miss the pass, I feel old.

They were real, and they were fantastic.

Going in for lunch tomorrow, alone.
Fer chrissakes, she's 23, but adorable and has no idea how much I'm worth, so she's got that going for her.


I wish I had your imagination.

We drove out to Merritt Island from Winter Park with a full U Haul (we were in the process of moving back to Atlanta), found a spot in the mall parking lot. The thunder was A LOT louder there than home.

Ended up watching the moon walk in a hotel room in Doraville.

And, yeah, there is quite a difference between the two vehicles. I guess it is because the Saturn was some much bigger than the Shuttle.

I have two secrets to feeling young:
First, I was born in a year ending with "0", which means it's easier to do arithmetic than it is to remember how hold I am. And since I hate doing arithmetic, I can't generally remember how old I am.

Second... wait. I forgot. Oh! I don't have a lawn. This is my secret to immortality. If I have no lawn, I will never tell kids to get off it. Hence, I can never be old.
