Dear youth of the world,
enjoy it while you can. Eat good food, drink good beer, screw like bunnies.
One day, you will have aches and pains, your hearing won't be as good, you'll have a mortgage and taxes and some snot nosed punk submitting articles about the good old days when that ridiculously underpowered xbox 360 thing that grampa goes on about was released.

Have fun while you can. You will one day grow old and die and then poof. Your time in the universe is over.
Shine on, kids.

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.

As has been pointed out MANY times here, the odds of Twinkies and Ding Dongs vanishing from existence are unlikely. Walmart, Kroger and a couple other companies are already looking at acquiring the brand.

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.

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.


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.

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.
