    I enjoyed "Almost Famous" ...felt they did a good job with it! 👍 Yeah, it was kinda cheesy in parts, but I enjoyed it...in part because it was based in an era I could easily relate to. Tom

    Why I shouldn’t write lyrics when I haven’t gone sleep after my night shifts Men vs pole dance (rewritten naughtier version take 3) The lights in the room were dimmed down It was a seedy little scene Girls were swinging legs around poles Most just barely out of there teens But out the corner of my eye What I saw nearly blew my mind At the end of the stage was a Middle aged man working his grind By chance or Cash advance There is no circumstance Where men should ever pole dance He was working it on the stage Working it like one of the girls Less a dancer and more primate But he sure made his tassels twirl I could write a long list for you 'Bout how many ways it was wrong But instead I’ll tell you the fact There weren't much money in his thong I don’t know if money problems Had got him up there on the floor He tried hard to be a dancer But looked like bouncers at the door Seeing the poor guy dancing there You couldn’t help but feel his pain But there’s one thing I know for sure I won’t go to that strip bar again By chance or Cash advance There is no circumstance Where men should ever pole dance Men don’t pole dance (tame version) A body that is so limber Legs all the way to November With a grip that’s oh so tight To the pole with all their might It might’ve been a sight to see If he weren’t hairier than me I don’t care the circumstance Men should never ever pole dance The guy he had all the right moves body swung to all the right grooves And doing his crucifix climb It almost bordered on sublime Still didn’t stop it being wrong Specially when he’s in a thong I don’t care the circumstance Men should never ever pole dance Short man, tall man Thin man, fat man I don’t care the circumstance Men should never ever pole dance

    Tom, Your plumbing story reminds me of me and my habit of holding doors open for people. Nine times out of ten someone will say thank you but that one time when they don't I still notice. It still annoys me just a little. Any time I might start thinking "how rude" to myself, I remind myself I'm not so much holding the door open for them as holding it open for me; because I want to live in a world where people are polite and thoughtful and empathetic. Where people hold doors open or otherwise show respect for others, like stopping to listen to a different opinion even though they disagree. Empathy. Do unto others. That sort of thing. Holding a door takes no effort. So if that guy didn't appreciate your help enough to even offer you lunch or their sincere thanks, that says something about him, not you. You probably wouldn't offer him help a second time, but at some point in the future it's possible that he might realize what a tremendous thing you did for him and months or years later truly appreciate it. And say thank you or try to reciprocate. Sometimes lessons aren't learned at the exact same time they are taught. It may take a while for some to actually absorb the lesson. I think that's the hope the nuns held onto decades ago when they taught me. Maybe someday some of this will finally sink in.

    Oh, if we're talking soundtracks, wow there are a lot. One I keep coming back to, however, is the Solaris remake. I've only seen the movie once, but I've listened to the music countless times over the years.

    Yup, Inside Llewyn Davies is a great movie. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2042568/?ref_=nv_sr_1 I also liked Jackie & Ryan, mostly for the music. Story is so so but overall it's a very folky vibe and I liked that. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3270108/ Of course Muscle Shoals though it's a documentary. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2492916/?ref_=nv_sr_1 Whiplash is amazing. A must see. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2582802/?ref_=nv_sr_1 An old classic, but I have always loved it. Hair. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079261/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 I also highly recommend the mini series documentary Soundbreaking. It's just excellent! https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5359830/ I recall watching the movie Once a long time ago and loving it. Might give it a shot. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0907657/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 Peter

    Funny you guys brought this up. In my FB feed this morning was the quote, "That's !@#$in' blasphemy! Elvis wasn't a Cajun!" While we're at it, my mother and sister are really into musicals and I grew up with that stuff around the house. I personally could never get into them, with exceptions. For example, I still love Little Shop of Horrors. I have the pianists/conductor's score for that one and was going over the opening harmonies. It's so well done. Campy as all heck, but I like it when they don't take themselves too seriously. (Same reason why I'm not interested in super hero movies, but enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy.) And I was never a huge fan of the Rocky Horror Picture show, but darnit when we do impromptu meetings at the hospital, huddled up in a circle, I keep hearing the dang Time Warp... 😂 Otherwise.... Amadeus I've watched many times. Walk the Line really surprised me. Great movie.

    Thank you for taking the time to read & comment-on the article gentlemen. As the description of this blog states, it's "Musically related tips, insights, opinions & personal experiences." As for "who I think I am", I'm simply a guy passing on his "Musically related tips, insights, opinions & personal experiences" . Nothing more, nothing less. BTW Ironknee...I appreciate the removal (editing out) of that personal insult from your original post. The fact that we don't like one another has little if anything to do with the quality of our musical efforts. Fact is, I voted for YOUR SONG in the recent 1 + 1 contest. That vote was based entirely on the merits of the material. "Nuf said. Thanks again! ***Edit 3/23/18*** I noticed the other day that member Ironknee had placed a 2nd comment on my profile, in the form of a status update. Since that comment was even more aggressive than the one he posted here, it pissed me off a wee bit. Enough so that I decided to do a quick Google search of Ironknee's real name (Tom Tognaci). That 5 minute investment of my time yielded a perfect example of why the issue of internet credibility is such an important one. Since that was the entire point of this article, I decided to share the results of that result. Here's the online source that screenshot was taken from - http://www.songwriter101.com/forums/viewthread/66759/P15/#522421 Obviously, I have no way of knowing if those accusations are true, but if you access that link, you'll see that Tom did delete the song in question. So, is that an indication of guilt? You'll have to be the judge of that. If you scroll down a bit on that Songwriter101 webpage, you'll see these additional comments from A.J. Michaels... I happen to know that "Ironknee" wasn't always his member name on songwriting sites. Is that WHY he changed it? Was he trying to make the accessing of this type of information more difficult? Again, there is no way to know for certain, but at the very least, it calls into question his "online credibility". AND this is precisely why it's so important to examine & evaluate chosen sources of information! Tom Hoffman
