Pennsylvania's Most Interesting Blog

19 Mai 2005

Since I've done it all it was hard for me to think of Ten Things but...

...naw, just kiddin'. There are still some things have not done in my 34 years.

This list idea comes to you today from Dr. John, who passed it on to me from another blogger. Apparently it's going around. So, I'm gonna pass this list idea on to three of you today and you pass it on, and so on, and so on...

Now, I am not sure if this is simply a face value "ten things I have never done--BUT WOULD secretly LIKE to" so I'm simply jotting down "ten things I have never done--PERIOD". Whether you think they are things I long do actually do is your own deal, which you can LEAVE COMMENTS about!

You can even leave comments in German or Slovak, how's THAT for Most Interesting service? A friend of mine in Bratislava was mezmerized by my massive swath of cray-hay-zee talk English on here so perhaps some day you will see funny accents, who knows...OK, COMMENT!

10 Things I've Never Done

1. Performed in front of more than 200 people
2. Given Birth
3. Published a novel
4. Participated in a triathalon
5. Thrown pennies off the top of the Space Needle
6. Regretted taking risks
7. Been to Asia
8. Gone hungry
9. Colored my hair
10. Approved of Bush

My guess is that you long to go to Asia, color your hair, and approve of Bush. ;)

ew NEVER! Never I say! Ewwww!;) Bush, ugh, hang on, I can't talk, I'm gagging...

OK, so I'd be all over going to Asia...

Yeah, man! Damn, no one here approves of or wants to of Bush!!! I read your blog. Didn't seem like you longed to either. Am I wrong?

If you mean me, yes and no. I love what everyone else hates about Bush: his attitude, his lack of nuance, his no BS approach to foreign policy. What I hate is the domestic stuff: huge spending, stem cell policy, gay marriage, Terri Schiavo. He's a mixed bag with the potential, if all ends well in the Middle East, to be a huge player in the history of freedom. Anyway, what kind of music do you (both) play?

While I have to disagree on inclusion of the words "Bush" and "freedom" in the same sentence that doesn't include "barfing", I think it's cool that you have an opinion and that you've visited my blog;)

I can, however, completely agree on ROCK n ROLL! I like any good music, really. I'm not the best guitarist around but I have a lot of fun jamming along to tunes or with friends. I'm currently jamming to AC/DC power cords on my Gibson Les Paul Classic. I also love bluegrass, jazz, folk, country from the US and all around the world.

Emily is a semi-professional tambourine player, with one guest appearance with Phantom Planet under her belt. I'm not sure what her future ambitions are but now we have to really make her good offers to play with us now that she's 'moved up' and all..

Music keeps me somewhat sane in the throes of academe.

You?

I grew up loving Judas Priest, AC/DC and, later, Guns'N'Roses etc. I still do, but recently I watched, quite by accident, "Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at the El Mocambo" on DVD and my music listening was changed forever. This guy played guitar right. Shortly thereafter I went out, bought a strat (non-vintage but American) and signed up for private lessons, mainly to learn the blues. If you've never seen SRV live, I can't recommend it highly enough. I hear he played a mean tambourine too...

Stevie Ray the master, no one played like him and you can recognize his tone right from the first note. Thanks for the DVD tip, I will have to check it out. I'm trying to learn more blues stuff too, I'm stuck in the same riff rut at the moment; maybe I'll get some ideas from watching SRV. I actually saw a guy a few times in Slovakia who played like SRV and even looked like him. It was kind of freaky how good he was. He had apparently won all these Stevie Ray contest and things.

Awe, isn't that profound... "I've never gone hungry..."

See, on my blog, I chose to put things where people whould read each item and thing, "No way!" Accordingly, they are much less thought provoking. Well, I guess I should say that they don't provoke thoughts beyond, "No way!"

 
At 20 Mai, 2005 18:20, Blogger Lisaopolis said...

So you concur that mine are actually thought-provoking? That is how I see your line of argument. Naturally, and while I did not really put TOO much thought into this list, the inclusion of statements like 'gone hungry' should spark the social pangs of 'wait, I'm reading a blog, I've never gone hungry either. How damn lucky I am'. Ta da!

And if you ever get donked in the head whilst standing near the Space Needle, you know it was ME...;)

Yes, yes-- I tinker with the Tambourine from time to time, but only at live stadium performances;) Other than that, I, alas, do not play. Of course, I can raise my goblet to the God of Rock with the best of 'em. I have a penchant for AC/DC as well, along with Aerosmith, Pink Floyd, Sting, U2, Fleetwood Mac and Van Morrison. Btw Lisa, I wouldn't want to be thunked in the head from a penny dropped from the Space Needle eithr. Wouldn't the velocity kill you?:)

 
At 21 Mai, 2005 11:55, Blogger Lisaopolis said...

Em, probably yes the velocity would be pretty harsh. I am clearly such a dork when it comes to understanding physics, I didn't even THINK about that;)

I like "Tambourine Tinkerer"!!!!!!

 
At 21 Mai, 2005 17:59, Blogger JZ said...

Naw, it wouldn't be that bad. A penny is so light that, even at maximum velocity, it wouldn't hurt that much. Episode III was much more painful.

Oh, by the way, this is complements of Andrew Sullivan.

 
At 21 Mai, 2005 21:04, Blogger Emily:) said...

You didn't like Episode III? Other than the writing, I thought it was pretty Bad-ass. This week on my blog, I've been doing this whole Salute to Star Wars thing--> Red, Red, Rine

 
At 21 Mai, 2005 21:28, Blogger Emily:) said...

Okay Lisa, my "10 things..." are up now:)

 
At 22 Mai, 2005 00:58, Blogger Lisaopolis said...

Now I am tempted to conduct this velocity experiment for real.

Love me some grocery star wars, and new top ten lists, thanks;)

Good relief I needed after today's Seattle / L.A. b-ball game. After an initial Seattle floor-mopping which only actually lasted ten minutes, something freaky happened and Seattle reverted to junior high powder puff league. Even the radio commentators were laughing in disbelief at the end of the game going over stats. I imagine the scene in the locker room afterwards was nothing short of DICEY. I certainly hope it was a ploy to hustle the rest of the league into thinking they will nosedive after taking it all last year, and that they are putting plans into motion now to release the mojo to rock the house with mighty prowess.

I'm bringing back the word 'dicey'.

I must see this Return of the Sith dealio.
