I thought this was going to be a blog about overcoming writer’s block. I’m supposed to write while watching MTV? That is never going to work!

Or rather, I would get up early and work, my objective being the fact that the trial — which was in LA — started at 12:00 EST. Therefore, I needed to be on my couch with sandwich and beer in hand by that hour. After lunch I would skim various books and articles that needed to be worked into the next day’s writing every time there was a sidebar.

I’ll check that out. First Wave (and the 1990s nostalgia channel, Lithium) plays very little women’s music, an absence that I clearly noticed. Lithium especially is all Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Stone Temple Pilots. Really? No Hole, Distillers, Breeders, Veruca Salt, etc.? Srsly.

Glad you all enjoyed the ETB flashback. (Sorry–I can’t contribute at all to the drug conversation, but feel free to carry it on yourselves!)

I was a freshling in college, and quite enjoyed it!

Echo and the Bunnymen. That takes me a way back. Notorioius is right, MDA was legal in the sense that it wasn’t illegal back in the day. I never tried it, for some reason. (A small error in my youth, the larger error being that I lived in California and never learned to surf. Of course if I had learned to surf, I probably would have never left California or earned a PhD, or learned how to play bridge, but that has nothing to do with MDA.)

So wow. Echo and the Bunnymen. I haven’t heard them in a long time. I think I had that on tape… I wonder if I need to get Satellite radio… or if I should just see if I can find the CD to buy on line?

It was all over Ohio at one point back when, but I don’t think anything was ever completely legal at that time?

I have been really enjoying Stevie Van Zandt’s Underground Garage on XM/Siruis. They play garage music from the 50s to the present, and *shittetonnes* of women bands.

I missed out on all of the really fun stuff in the 1980s. I think I was the only teenager in North America who took Nancy Reagan’s advice and “just sa[id] no.” I thought it would compromise my brilliant high school career!

PhysioProffe: The Satellite Radio channel “First Wave” plays a lot of Echo & the Bunnymen. A LOT! Also, a lot of the Cure, because one of the old Cure guys is a DeeJay for the channel. They don’t play enough Jam or Specials for my taste.

THAT’s OLD!!!
