Air Supply

My first concert was a local/small town type and although I enjoyed it I guess I should feature something that co-MM participants could more likely relate with.

Air Supply has been around since the 80s. Because I was crazy about them when I was a teen, I and my then bf bought front row seats when they performed in Bangkok in 2000. Changes in their looks and voices were evident but I didn't care. They sang many of my faves and that's what mattered. When the band began playing the intro to Making Love Out of Nothing at All, the audience went wild. As well-worn as the description may seem, that's how sentimental Bangkokians behaved that night. Towards the end of this hit the entire Bangkok Convention Hall rose to give them a standing ovation.

After all these years I haven't gotten tired of listening to them. Once I sang along one of their many hits playing off an MP3 and a niece said, "Auntie, you know Someone Who Believes in You? That's our high school graduation song."

Personally, there's something nostalgic about aging soft rock stars. Fab, old Australian duo. They gave one happy fan a lovely evening reminiscing beautiful memories.

Can't say I get the same feeling from Air Supply. LOL Oh well. To each her own, right? ;-) But I do love soft rock.

Speaking of soft rock...A GF and I were discussing Matt Kearney the other day. I called him alternative and she called it adult contemporary. I said, "Oh no. I am too young for adult contemporary. Let's label him adult alternative." LOL See, to each her own. ;-)

Well, my first "official" concert was one put on by my high school teachers, but, I didn't dare feature that one! LOL Love Air Supply!

Happy MM!

OMG I love Air Supply. "I'm lying alone with my head on the phone, thinking of you 'til it hurts. I know you hurt too, but what else can we do..." Wow talk about memory lane!

Hubby & I LOVED Air Supply, we wore out several of their cassettes, but never managed to see them in concert.

I saw a VH1 interview type thing with them a few years ago & was thrilled that they are still singing.

Happy Music Monday!!!

Love them. I saw a very romantic open air concert of theirs in the 1980's with my first real boyfriends. Listening to them in the dark, with my first love is a great memory!

I absolutely love Air Supply. I often listen to them still. I never have got to see them though. Thanks for posting one of my favorite songs too! (Making Love Out Of Nothing At All)

Rumford

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.
