Thanks for the nice work, SteveOz!

I don't hate the Eagles, or their music. Some classic songs in that catalog. But, I get the impression that Henley and Frey are assholes. IIRC, they only agreed to do the reunion tour if they were paid more than the other guys.

Any number of Yogi-isms: "Success is 90% mental. The other half is physical."

Also, "50% of success is just showing up."

Couple Cajun favorites: "The higher the baboon climbs up the pole, the more his ass shows."

"Never wrestle with a pig. You both get dirty, and the pig likes it."

And, of course, "I fart in your general direction."

Anyone want to post songs commemorating the 47th anniversary of the first men on the moon -- July 20, 1969? Bowie released Space Oddity earlier that week to coincide with the event.

Maybe we can cobble together some volunteers to take a day of the week. Split the duties up and get five different perspectives to keep 11W rockin'.

Always thought that made sense, Gen'l.

Thanks to all for the kind words.

Regarding the tragedy in Nice, I posted this thread with its title before I heard about those events. Apologies to anyone I offended. It was purely unintended.

TIMH for me has been a 6 month labor of love, but labor nonetheless. Producing even my meager original writing on a daily basis is a job. It's often difficult and time consuming simply choosing a day's topic. Then the real work starts. Research and note taking, writing and getting up the next morning to post. After all that, it's gratifying to have JC'sLP, CWRU, Grateful, LudwigYards, SeattleLinga, Hove, Heinrich, RBurgundy, JLBNYC, and other "regulars" appreciate the effort and post their own favorites. I've learned how little I really knew about music. But, as time has gone on, it seems like fewer and fewer people are posting, and presumably reading, as well. Maybe a sports site just isn't the place for a regular music thread. Maybe the concept or the writing got stale. I only know I reached a point where the results didn't seem to warrant the effort. I'm sorry about that.
