FUCK OFF 2016!!!!!

damn, now glenn fry....

the quintessential 70s song.....



special appearance by THE BLIMP!!!!



the year this came out, the guy i had a crush on since 3rd grade (there's more to that story but i'm just focusing on this song), convinced his mom to let him go skiing for a week in colorado with friends---16 year old boys from iowa, no parents, what could go wrong?? 4 days later they get busted with an adult guy they had planned to hook up with, crossing into texas from mexico with POUNDS of pot and sawed off shotguns, i'm sure i have newspaper clipping somewhere here still (yes from 80s)...his parents paid A LOT to get him out of that and when he returned to school, my best friend jenny bigwood and i, would ALWAYS sing this when we saw him.....he wasn't embarrassed or ashamed either, affluenza before it existed? he ended up dying in a car wreck (unfortunately taking someone else with him who was heading the other way) on the highway, going over 100mph, doing cocaine.....that was like within the last 10 years, i think....i can ask mr. google....ah, 2008....so yes, it was the last 10 years....

Crazy story--sounds like a potential movie script.

He was great on that Miami Vice episode--wish he had done more acting.

it could be a movie script!! when i googled to see what year matt died, i also saw the widow he created was STILL going thru the courts---in 2015!! he hit a truck driver after he crossed the median....the driver was from another state and apparently HIS state's worker's comp didn't want to pay and claimed he had to file for worker's comp in Iowa (where it happened)....the man lived 3 months after the accident--in the hospital the whole time---before succumbing to his injuries....wife and 2 kids.....well and matt had a 7 year old at the time whom his parents (will they get it right this time?) had custody of, since the girl's mother didn't want to be a mother and moved to another state to do drugs.....the girl's name is karma (i think spelled with a h).....

yep, glenn fry was a good actor...he should have definitely done more of it!

Wonder how Joe Walsh is doing…
Is Joe Walsh still alive? I just remember seeing the album The Smoker You Drink, the Player You Get, and I thought, "That guy's not long for this world." (Yeah, and that's years after I first heard Life's Been Good, of course.
