I once seen Dick Cavett walking on Park Ave. and yelled "Hey, Dick!" at him. He smiled and gave me the old doff of the cap.

I also called George Plimpton up once because he was listed in the phone book. He was cool, too.
Posted: Oct 12, 2007 5:14 pm
 
not that i think cavett and plimpton are cultural heavyweights but then again the time i spent with them on tv and in books (and plimpton's immortal interviews with writers in PR) make me think these are two perfect people to share a drink with

This thread title is totally misleading.

Amazon said I'd get it the first week of January, but it could be some other shit I ordered that's holding it up.

I'd like to see someone reading some of Sir Elton John's lyrics-most of them are just unintelligble crap...
Posted: Dec 8, 2007 11:47 am
 
thems'd be Bernie Taupin's lyrics. Taupin rocked the poetry, Sir Elton clocked the floetry.

i knew it was a piece of shit even before i got to the absolutely fucking mangled "45 Punks' Secret Real Names" list on page 17. much confusion there and listing ray burns/captain sensible twice still only adds up to 44.

did anyone proofread this fucking mess?

kosher dick should be shot out of a cannon for attaching his name to this bullshit.
Posted: Dec 9, 2007 3:17 pm

i don't think so, to be honest. i know i didn't. in fact, the only lists i've read are eric o's and j's since i brought them in, and tim's, since he's tim.

i only posted this because of the goner aspect. i did post Lorraine Gordon's, and its now won the ASCAP Deems Taylor. and i did post Roadwork, since i produced it.

kosher dick should be shot out of a cannon for attaching his name to this bullshit.

he digs it a lot and is the one doing all the interviews.
