I kinda wish I had got to Iggy long ago.
Although he doesn't really talk about anything original, his music is unique and has a lot personality to it.
I can't believe I never go to him.....redface.gif

BTW, PM sent.....and thanx.wink.gif

One hot afternoon we paid our cover at The Midnight Sun in Jackson MS. We were underage but it didn't matter to anyone there. We paid to see some band we had never heard of. 311.

The opening act was getting ready and we had made our way into the middle of the crowd and could see pretty good. We didn't pay much attention to the sea of white tank tops and Doc Martens rustling the dust in the outdoor arena behind this bar in downtown Jackson. Our flannel shirts blended in just fine I thought.

Three notes into the opening act and the wind was knocked out of me. I was looking up at the blue sky sucking loads of dust. I realized those weren't stars or little tweety birds but instead the thick soles of Doc Martens whirring around my face like flies at a picnic.

I got up to my feet and made for the edge of the crowd to find my friend. He wasn't anywhere I could see and I thought he was becoming ground beef in that pit. I asked the guy next to me who was playing and he said Iggy Pop. I only saw the guy for a minute as he pretty much stayed on the ground with the crowd as the band played but it was indeed him.

Roughest pit I've ever been in. The most dangerous being Five Finger Death Punch which I avoided out of an abundance of caution and not being 18.

Yeah,what Oink said. I have fond memories and a scare from the days in the pit. Craziest of all was at a place called Club Nu in Miami Beach in 1991. NIN was the headliner and when Head Like a Hole started,people were launching themselves off the second floor balcony,some were caught and others...well not so lucky! Ahh,fond memories of youth.

The Pit wasn't anything I have ever been around....I guess I was before its time.

Did I ever tell you about the time I was forced to sit in some guy's puke during an Alice Cooper concert?tongue.gif

I meant scar,got slammed into a post and got a little banged up. Just a bit of a cut on the forehead. I believe you did mention something about sitting in puke,sounds lovely. Had some guy puke on my back at a Santana show. Enough of that. :-)

I went too far again, didn't I ?

My therapist says I'm stranded between my ID and Super Ego simultaneously projecting my repression to my preconcious and my narcissistic reservoir of libido.

I told her, "My dear young lady, there was a great deal of truth, I dare say, in what you said, and you looked very pretty while you said it, which is much more important."

After a pretty long pause I asked her out but she said no.

Yeah, Jackson's a rough town. My cousin has been stabbed in the back and head and kidnapped. And that was two separate occasions. A couple of guys threw him in their trunk when he went to his truck. They drove around for three hours and heard them talking about what to do with him. Luckily, he found the jack in the trunk and popped it. The next time they stopped at a light he bolted and got away.

Indeed. Funny thing though you get away from that "big" city and out a few counties and you get nothing but everybody getting along. In my town it's just DUI's and possession charges. I think the university drives most of that but at the same time keeps the populace at a higher level of mutual respect. I work with the local law enforcement and see the records. DUI, speeding, drug charge, car break ins. The last "violent" crime was a guy (22) from here drove to Florida to get his younger girlfriend (19) and they ran away to Seattle. Media said kidnapping blah blah but it was really two kids leaving their parents. Most of the fraternity stuff gets quieted down due to money and status but kidnapping games and butt chugging happen and manage to stay out of the news.

It doesn't surprise me.
Most university towns are like this.
The schools almost always carry an enormous amount of influence with local authorities.

"Can't Remember To Forget You" is also not Rihanna's first musical encounter with a Latina...

Glad you enjoyed.


If you want to split hairs btw, the last video by Rihanna ("Te Amo") probably has more of a Spanish vibe to it... or a blend of Spanish and Latin influences, which aren't exactly the same thing. The lady in the video, the castle, and the flamenco dance are more European in flavor, and really more suggestive of Spain. But the basic "dunk-kadunka" rhythms in the song are more Caribbean (ie Latin American) in flavor. So I guess it could be considered either one. (Beautiful tune btw.)


Shakira is most definitely Latina though, since she was born in Columbia. But she's also part Spanish on her mother's side (according to Wikipedia), so she can also go either way. Probably more than you wanted to know, but there it is. :)


Bonus track by Ri & Maroon 5...
