Open Mic Night Guest: Jim Peacock

(Michele, that was so totally unfair to pre-empt my putting "(insert your name here)" in the title. Totally. Un. Fair. I'm not ashamed to admit, though I should be... I liked, still like and shall continue to like the Alan Parsons Project. There are others like me out there. Come on, y'all - fess up! Yes, I am the eye in the sky and I am looking at you. I watch 7th Heaven. Every week. Sometimes even when it's a repeat. Just five more years and I'll be allowed to fantasize about Ruthie. I count the days. One of my favorite movies of all time is Grease. I sing along. I sing along to Paradise by the Dashboard Lights too. That's enough for now. Got to keep some things back for the psychiatrists to drag out or they get all bitchy. _____________________ Snooze Button Dreams

I'm obsessed with Lindsay Lohan's "Drama Queen" video. I'm 74 years old.

the Ruthie comment. I'm speechless.

Come on, y'all - fess up! Yes, I am the eye in the sky and I am looking at you.

You're lucky you're miles away in Georgia where I cannot reach you to beat your ass for putting that song in my head.

Sorry about that Tommy. Didn't mean to startle. I know it's all "Olson twins" for most guys, I'm just more patient than most.

Ilyka, I'm sure I owe you for a dig somewhere. If not, nyah nyah nyah nyah! :-P

Oh, wait a sec...this is ASV! I was thinking I was in Amish territory. I take it all back.


Dude, I love Parsons.

More shame for me...

On the plus side, Jim, you're right: Grease is the word, is the word that you heard, it's got groove, it's got meaning (groove ahahand meee-nehehen).

I'll shut up now. It might be open mic night but I don't recall hearing anything about allowing duets.

About Alan Parsons, I have the Edgar Allan Poe album, play side one a lot; never play side two.

Ruthie? Ruthie?! Sure Jessica Biel is gone, but let's go for Lucy (Beverley Michell) first to keep us...umm legal.

I'm biding my time with Roxanne but she's really not my style. Lucy is too...too Lucy. Cecilia might be an option...

I wouldn't want to think like you
And if I had time to
I wouldn't want to talk to you"

Long-time all-time fave.

Eric Wolfson was an experienced writer of mostly b-side material while it was Pasrson's first album ever as an artist, though he'd worked as an engineer and producer for artists like Pink Floyd, the Hollies and Al Stewart. When Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson first decided to produce an album based on the poetry and prose of Edgar Allen Poe they tenatively titled their work "The Project", but later on titled the work "Tales of Mystery and Imagination".

Once the album was done and it came time to promote it, the record company felt the need to have a "band name" associated with it. Ever practical Eric Wolfson suggested "Alan Parsons Project" since the album was really Alan's inspiration. "The Alan Parsons Project" didn't officially become the group's name until they signed their first record deal with Arista.

You who are rich and whose troubles are few
May come around to see my point of view
What price the Crown of a King on his throne
When you're chained in the dark all alone

Oh, and Lucy most definitely. Beverly Mitchel (mmmmmm) a girl in need of a spanking...
