I don't think I've ever heard this song before. How odd.
Wow. You must have checked out of the culture for a bit in the latter half of the 70s. This, according to the all-knowing Wikipedia, was the first #1 hit of the US Bicentennial year.Much later than this, I was overseas for half a decade, came back, and couldn't talk to anyone. I didn't know movies, TV shows, musicians, anyone or anything who'd become popular while I was gone.That was kind of the point. I wanted to check out. But still, it was a shock when I came back.
Eric, you might enjoy this https://youtu.be/TUoWYoTWcnA
Oh yeah, saw that. Even have seen some of the shows featured in it.
Figures. ;)Do you read Steven Den Beste nowadays?
I check out of the culture every chance I get. Haven't had television since 2004.
Yeah, I haven't owned a TV since the 90s, though I have watched a few selected shows via Amazon, most recently Vikings and Justified.
Saw Sons of Anarchy that way. Saw one season of Vikings, but didn't check back in. Never saw Justified.
Yeah, I watched a couple of seasons of SoA. The first couple of seasons of Justified are worthwhile -- Old West US Marshal in modern-day Kentucky. After that it's a mixed bag.Life was also interesting. Only went 2 seasons, but it's an interesting story. LAPD detective gets convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. After 8 years, his lawyer gets him out of prison, millions in a suit against the city, and his old job back.
Tom, Let us say that DenBeste's ideas and mine *differ*. I'll leave it at that.
Fair enough. I don't care all that much for his recent adventures in anime, but I liked his USS Clueless writing back before his stroke.
