Car Shopping?

I know, probably not. But I laughed myself stupid over Clarkson's take on the Sebring...read it here.

Oh, to be so honest and still get begged to drive something every week...cue envy.

Lorraine: It doesn't add up to the Phantom Rolls you had out. How come you get all the nice cars too drive? Kidding...

This Clark story was long on bulldust and short on facts. Also his taste in music is pretty shlepping awful. He lists 5 bands I'd never allow on my reciever.Usually I like his reviews, I have to give this one a miss. Better than the Star rerunning selections from his books though.

Yeah. Like I'm gonna comment negatively on someone who gets paid to sort of talk about cars...

Did anyone else catch the Billy Joel line from Scenes From an Italian Restaurant?

Desert Island CD's?

I'll start:

Uriah Heep's Salisbury

Desert Island CD? Heck it was just a drive with three yoicks from the island to provide soundtrack to. My picks are fairly broad; Renaissance "Can You Understand", "Black Flame", Rickie Lee Jones "Gravity", Led Zeppelin "Over the Hills & Far Away", Arlo Guthrie " Alice's Restaurant Masacree," & "Travelin to the City", Judas Priest "Victim of Changes", David Bowie "Space Oddity", Kiss "Detroit Rock City",
Joni Mitchell"Cold Blue Steel & Sweet Fire" Blue Oyster Cult "I Love the Night." A mix of stuff.
My record collection (not a typo) is huge.

Your picks are broad and aged, buzz. Might I suggest a 2008 model; I,Flathead by Ry Cooder. It's trippy.

Eclectic... that's good. Talking of records, I'm looking at a USB turntable that will allow me to "convert" all my vinyl to mp3s. Unable to find mp3s of much of my collection from legal and other sources. This would solve that. Will continue to take the edge of longer drives...

I, Flathead is good, I prefer Cooder's older stuff like Jammin' with Edward. Santana just gets better and better on the other hand. My Sloan LPs are great too. BTW I would never slam Lorraine about cars because it wouldn'tbe fair as I do write all about cars (every single day) for a living.Lorraine provides a strong opinion on cars from a needed perspective.

Not a big fan of the 21st century version of Santana. For me, the fire of the 70's just not there. Caravanserai -- there's a Sanatan album that is way underappreciated!

omemeeozzie..Santana's debut album was nothing to sneeze at either, neither was Abraxas. I can still see and hear them playing Soul Scarifice at Woodstock. If I am aging myself, tough. We were lucky to have grown up during the best times in music, never too be repeated...

I suspect that a few of us here are of a similar vintage, Roz. I never made it to Woodstock, but I did see Hendrix's last performance at the Isle of Wight...

"R" is not my sister Roz.

Trust me.

OK Lorraine, what is with the trust me? Sarcasm here? You know me, I know. It is no big secret...

Woodstock, may try to be repeated but never the same. An concert for a few thousand, on Max's farm, and half a million show up. You could not have never planned it, it just happened, as did most things in that time period. Isle of White. Have it on dvd. Great performances. Jimi Hendrix. Chased out his own country, the U.S. because of colour (but good enough to served in the military) to England and becomes a huge success with the help of Noel adn Mitch. Omemeeozzie: Great to know someone is a music buff. I am a half retired, still do the odd gig,a musican from years back, the good old Yorkville days in T.O. Get your turn table all oiled up. They are back in style... Personally, they should have never left. You cannot get the same frequencies out of a cd as you can a piece of large plastic.

Take care and keep spinning those tunes. The best time period ever in the music field.

Hey bro, no big problem. Rob by the way...Nice to be thought of as one of Lorraine's family, she may not like. I am not an unlawful person, easy going, so she need not worry. As I said, good to know a music buff. Interesting blog going here, from cars to music or music to listen too in cars...Same, no matter what.
