Didn't Robert Downey Jr. do an Elton John video around the same time?

Anyway, I would strongly urge anyone who has the chance to see him to do so. He really hasn't lost much vocally, and it was an amazing show. There were floor seats available when I bought mine (cheap seats) and I was all "no! I don't need expensive seats, as long as I'm in the building, I'm fine!" HELLS NO. Next time it'll be the very best seats, those people were rocking out and having an amazing time, and Elton is quite interactive with the crowd!

I approve of your prescription for crabby-ass-ness.

So it's been TRYING to rain here for hours. There was a full storm on the other side of town that I drive thru but here, it drops about 6 drops every 10 minutes. Monsoon, ur doin it wrong

I love rain, and when heavy rain is forecasted and we only get a few sprinkles, I'm so disappointed.

Tara needs to move here. I guarantee if she spent any length of time listening to Canadian radio, she would be sick of Bryan Adams, too.
IMPOSSIBLE. I can never tire of Bryan. NEVER.




I have that version of Sad Songs, but I'm afraid to listen to it. I don't know why.

Yes. It was a lovely, low-key video too.

Why do you keep running away after you say stuff?

Get back here!

Yeah! Your opinions are as valid as anyone else's!

And besides, I'm pretty sure RDJ is pretty universally loved. Or maybe that's just me.

I just realized Benny and the Jets is not on side one of the album. So, that needs to be included.

Okay, I have some work issues I need to discuss/get some opinions on.

Not that I'm afraid people from work are stalking me on here, I'm still paranoid about posting about work in any sort of detail, and I'm wondering what the best way to deal with things would be. Zoo Confessionals? I don't even know how much that is frequented these days. In here under spoilers? Arg.

Might be a dumb question, but what good does having it under spoilers do you? I think this forum can be read whether or not you're a registered member; can unregistered guests not view posts under spoilers?

Do they know your alias? Is there ANY connection between anything you do/use at work and the name "Vintage Punk"? If not, I don't see the harm. Heck, I'm pretty easy to find I think... my user name is based on my license plate on my car.

I could be wrong (very likely!) but I've always assumed that under spoilers would be more difficult/impossible for google bots to pick up. Am I incorrect on that??

Oh, a google bot thing. I don't think that would make things any more hidden from sneaky internet ways, to be honest.

Well, like zu said - you never mention the name of your workplace, and it's not even clear you're Canadian, so unless someone might make a connection between your user name and your real name, what are the odds that someone would know this is you?

If you're really that concerned about the merest hint of being detected, then you're probably better off not talking about it at all.

But I suppose at this point, you've probably already passed that option, because you have been talking about your work.

It's good to be concerned and cautious, of course.

I think if someone were really motivated to find it, they could connect my main personal email account to Interference.

That said, my former supervisor knew I have an online presence, and used to say all the time that I should blog about work experiences. Ha. Yeah, I don't think that would be wise...

The trouble I'm having is being able to see ANY videos, or anything at all that uses Adobe Flash. Which means I also can't upload pics to photobucket except one at a time, and all kinds of stuff that uses Flash on our computers. Like quick copy and paste! UG!!

The only non-greatest-hits CD of his I own is Tumbleweed Connection, which is great.
Rocket Man has been one of my absolute favorites since I was like 11 years old when it came out. I went out and bought it. I was a huge Elton fan, and I remember he was the first artist that I eagerly awaited a new album to come out, waiting outside Tower records for them to open when I was 14 years old.

He has some amazing full albums! You should get more of his early ones and listen through. They are like U2 albums in that most his early ones are all so good, every song.

I have the EJ Dream Ticket 4 dvd set, but only ever watch the first disc, the NYC show. What is your set called?

Bonus - just started, on mine, Kiki Dee makes and appearance for Don't Go Breakin' My Heart, yay!
Today in the grocery Don't Go Breaking My Heart came on the music they play! I actually was singing along. My friend and I may have have dueted that in high school.
