Off-Topic Discussion / Songs that strike a chord

Little bit of a pun there in the title. ;)

This one always gets to me... 

<a href="" target="_blank" class="new_win"></a>

It's such a sad song about how little we know when we're young, and the mistakes we make... and that some just don't even make it through those years at all. I love 90s music. It was such a dark period -- unlike the pop-sy syntho sounds of the 80's, we're now diving into more melancholic lyrics and sounds and sometimes even the grungiest hardest songs have the most poignant lyrics. 

Add the ones that get to you here...

Sully for the first time since it was released in theaters.  It looks fantastic on BluRay. Very enjoyable film, but man... one phone call between Sully and Mrs. Sully was really enough.

Sounds like she's had a rough life after stardom. RIP Erin.

He doesn't seem to mind what material he releases.  ;D

Don't think we have to worry about Tom Cruise -- I just can't imagine he'd want to do this movie.

Probably Matt McConaughey?

Well, I put on the White Album, and although not in the Top 5 or bonus, I have huge appreciation for Savoy Truffle.

Hi Elizabeth! Great to see you again! Nice post and pics. I hope you're doing well! I know you're in our thoughts and prayers.

My good post of the day is that I had knee replacement surgery about 5-6 weeks ago, and I'm starting to get off the pain killers, at least I think so. I tried to go cold turkey yesterday, and wound up giving in just before midnight. But, if I can get down to one a day, that will be better. It's not an addiction thing, I just don't feel good with all the drugs in my system so want to get back to normal as soon as possible.  (AKA should enjoy seeing this.)

This is what happens when I check Facebook after a few weeks away... meme city.

States of some of our most prolific posters:   One pic to sum up each U.S. State:



^  That's one of my favorite of the 50.



^ One of the great things about traveling through some of the small towns just an hour or more outside of Nashville is that you do see homemade billboards like this.

Great to hear he's got more for us. That was a long wait.

Weird, so I called my dad tonight, and he told me he just joined a matchmaking service, which cost him $9k. Did I mention he's 85 years old?   ::)  That dream seems even stranger now.

I put my answers in 2 pt. font. To read, quote this post, and you'll be able to read it. But, only after you post your answers (in 2 pt).

Florence Foster Jenkins

I loved this movie, also. Was hoping for a nomination for Hugh Grant, but nada.

As I wrote in another thread a few weeks ago, I've been on pain killers, and having really weird dreams that are more realistic than the typical nightmare, but always seem to strike home in a painful way.  I nearly had to put down a 15+ year old dog a few months ago, but I actually found her a home where she would be taken care of, and live out her last days with people who had the ability to care for her special needs. One of the worst dreams I had (I posted about it elsewhere) was that I was caught on camera in a viral video killing a puppy, and had to live with that title for the rest of my life. So, that's what these drugs seem to do -- find things deep inside your conscience that upset you, and revisit them in a new way. And all I can say is... it's not been fun.

Last night I had a really strange one. I met this woman, and she was just really cool. Very beautiful, and a bit older than me. And I thought, Wow, she'd be perfect for my dad (my mom passed away recently, and my dad is dating again).  So I'm spending some time with her, and I tell her about my dad, and how I'd like her to meet him.  And then, after a while, I realized my dad was George Harrison, and he was dead. I had to apologize and tell her I'd forgotten.

Okay, so that was a very strange one, on so many levels.

Hi April,

It's always nice to have a new long-time Clint fan on the board. I don't know why Clint would be driving around Kentucky, but I'm sure if he did break down on the road there, it wouldn't be long before someone would help him out. I'm one state south of you, and have traveled through your bluegrass state quite a few times now.

Check out the rest of the board, and maybe you'll find some interesting topics you'd like to post in.

Welcome to the Board. :)
