It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Blast from the past - moving on

God I had the BIGGEST crush on the one with the mandolin, Eric Faulkner.

What freaks me out is I spent half of last night listening to old BCR songs, and you know what?

Those guys actually were not bad. They wrote most of their own music (Marlena was one of Faulkner's and Stuart Wood, the acoustic guitar player), didn't waste time on flashy dance moves, they just played solid pop that has actually stood the test of time, it's still good, more than thirty years later.

No, they aren't on a par with the Beatles, or Clapton, etc. But they beat the crap out of the Backstreet Boys or N'Sync or any of those manufactured boy bands.

They're still good. Who woulda thunk it? I guess this is why the band went from 1970 into the early 80's, an unheard of long run for pop bands.

Hell, they don't even need any cowbell!

Borderline symptom of the day: impressedimpressed

Ew. According to D, they were the biggest dorks going around Edinburgh...but of course everyone wanted to be a Bay City Roller.

LOL dorks or not, they still made solid pop music. :) I am genuinely surprised that I was listening to the stuff and saying, you know, that's not half bad!

I can't say the same about Donny Osmond or the Partridge Family.
