Re: “Vintage Vinyl

Linda wouldn't have had any way to know this, but she became a "star-in-waiting" with 'Different Drum'. For those of us who were paying attention then - and who had their ears to the ground, she was welcomed with open arms. It was never a matter, for the listening public, that she'd end up being a 'one hit wonder'; she had already walked through the door. It wasn't a matter of 'if, it was a matter of 'when'. All it would take was another 'successful' 45, and in 1970, with 'Long Long Time', she came closer. Then, everybody knows what happened in late 1974 with 'Heart Like A Wheel' and 'You're No Good'. But the point is, she already had a seat at the table in 1967; it was just a matter of time. I'm so happy that she stuck with her career. All of us are the richer for that decision.

Re: “Vintage Vinyl

Terry Lee most likely had heard Peter, Paul & Mary's 'A Soalin' before adapting some of it for 'Flight Thirteen'. PP&M were huge during this period. Their 'In Concert' LP, from 1964, got to #4 on Billboard.

Here's their version from that LP: https://youtu.be/hDlG4TS6wFA

Re: “Vintage Vinyl Tucson

'Don't Blow Your Mind' is a damn good record! Thinking back, it's amazing how relatively open local radio playlists were then - and how completely wired teenagers were to AM radio. FM was just for "serious" music like Classical, Jazz and "Easy Listening".

Thanks, also, for the local history about Copper State Studio. Looking at that address on 'Street View', the building to the right of #211, with the sunburst grills on the windows, sure looks as though it could've been a recording studio once. Is this the same building or was the original torn down to put up 'The Cadence' apartments? Anybody know?

Re: “Tucson Marches for Equality

Just so I'm clear on this giant waste of time and energy. They marched because of something a successful tycoon said 12 years ago about being a playboy. That's the justification for this great gathering of ignorance. Sure glad you all live in a free country! I noticed how much effect it had! None!

Re: “The New Old School

Sorry to disagree with you McSmelly supporters, but Wise guy has every right not to support a business that has supported a Koch brother puppet. Mr. Elefante has every right to support McSmelly, but he has to deal with the consequences of his actions. That being said, I will miss eating at Mama Louisa's as the food is fantastic. So for all you Trumpanzees who need somewhere to eat after your Klan meeting, I would suggest eating there.

Re: “Tucson Marches for Equality

The TW's Priscilla and Ella chronicles, with comments blocked, epitomizes the hypocrisy of a publication that claims to be the "alternative press" and champion of free speech, while censoring same.

I sincerely hope the children's parents have set aside enough money to pay for these girls' required eventual counseling., but my hunch is no.

Re: “Tucson Marches for Equality

Wrong, Again:

You're not supposed to insert the anal beads so far up that you taste them.

Once you do that, you take the chance of running them up so far that you get brain damage. I can already tell I'm too late to warn you about that though. Judging by the posts and schoolyard bullying you've engaged in today, it's pretty obvious brain damage has already occurred. It's a good thing you've experienced this before and you're already quite used to your Swiss cheese holed brain.

Just do yourself a favour and remember that when you pull the beads back out, that isn't chocolate that's smeared all over them. If you lick those beads clean, you may end up with E. coil or salmonella.

On second thought, I was incorrect. Suck the magic chocolate that God stored in your body from those beads and be sure to lick them clean. He put it inside for you as early chocolate Easter egg gifts. He did this because you're such a polite, kind, respectful and unmisogynistic basement troll.

Re: “Tucson Marches for Equality

What's really disgusting is people that will turn the other way on filthy behavior because they have so much hate for those that disagree with them. Take this Francis Saitta character, he has no problem turning his cheek to Bill Clinton, a bona fide and documented predator including rape. Frances is perfectly fine with Bill Clinton having a liaison with a 21 year old intern in the White House, oral sex where he made sure to ejaculate his semen on her.

And he has no problem if that same Bill Clinton is caught ogling Donald Trump's daughter. A mother with husband and beautiful child in the most public of places on earth. How disgusting!

Re: “Tucson Marches for Equality

Hey Francis - frick you if you can't communicate in English. What is possibly bigoted about men wanting to have sex with women and women wanting to have sex with men? How do you think you got here, you idiot?

What Again: Your comment, as usual, is bigoted, as well as Disrespectful to Women!! You are undoubtedly made from the same mold and would unhesitatingly, as a "heterosexual man" have your way with a woman......and...Pon su cabeza donde no esta brillando el sol...Por Favor

Re: “Tucson Marches for Equality

News Bulletin for Saitta - I'm sure it's been many, many years for you but single heterosexual men like to have sex with women. And when that man is rich and famous, many women are attracted and willingly make themselves available.

Re: “Tucson Marches for Equality

If Hillary was the president and her muslims friends came into power, women would have to cover their faces,do not drive, stay home for their man and speak only when spoken to. Is that what all the women want? Thank God for Donald Trump you ladies never had it so good. period

Re: “Tucson Marches for Equality

FYI: Donald Trump: the 45th President of the United States!!!

Trump recorded having extremely lewd conversation about women in 2005
By David A. Fahrenthold , The Washington Post
October 8, 2016,

"Donald Trump bragged in vulgar terms about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women during a 2005 conversation caught on a hot microphone, saying that when youre a star, they let you do it, according to a video obtained by The Washington Post. ....

In that audio, Trump discusses a failed attempt to seduce a woman, whose full name is not given in the video......

I moved on her, and I failed. Ill admit it, Trump is heard saying. It was unclear when the events he was describing took place. The tape was recorded several months after he married his third wife, Melania.....

Whoa, another voice said.

I did try and f--- her. She was married, Trump says.....

Trump continues: And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, Ill show you where they have some nice furniture.

I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldnt get there. And she was married, Trump says. Then all of a sudden I see her, shes now got the big phony tits and everything. Shes totally changed her look......

Whoa! Trump says. Whoa!

Ive got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her, Trump says. You know Im automatically attracted to beautiful I just start kissing them. Its like a magnet. Just kiss. I dont even wait.

And when youre a star, they let you do it, Trump says. You can do anything.

Whatever you want, says another voice, apparently Bushs.

Grab them by the p---y, Trump says. You can do anything.
