|Nov-15-15|| ||WannaBe: Raining good outside, very much needed.|
|Nov-15-15|| ||WannaBe: Cal/Stanford will be 7:30 night game, tix prices have also dropped.|
|Nov-16-15|| ||WannaBe: <chancho> I think I've narrowed it down to why I dislike Spectre's theme song.|
It's sung by a male in a high-pitched voice... Men/group have done lots of Bond themes, but I don't remember one being in a high-pitched voice.
|Nov-16-15|| ||WannaBe: More idiots:
|Nov-16-15|| ||Jim Bartle: You better watch your step, <wb>, or else!|
Oops, I forgot I'm not anonymous.
|Nov-16-15|| ||WannaBe: You know, I posted last week, that St. Johns lost to some D-II school...|
Just realized Ucla lost their first game of the '15-'16 season (at Pauley) to Monmouth.
|Nov-16-15|| ||Jim Bartle: UCLA, Georgetown and even Wisconsin lost their openers to really small colleges.|
|Nov-16-15|| ||WannaBe: Final update on the Cal/Stanford tix 'investment'.
Purchased 2 tix @144.76 (Oct. 20)
Sold 2 tix @162.00 (today)
Good thing I don't make a livin' doing this.
|Nov-17-15|| ||waustad: I met a professional scalper in Costa Rica. I got the impression he was looking for something like a safe deposit box there where he could stash cash. He was based in NY and was probably trying to dodge taxes. It wouldn't be a shock if he got involved with the Brothers Villalobos eventually and lost it all. Their Ponzi scheme paid very well for quite a while.|
|Nov-17-15|| ||WannaBe: This is for <chancho> I think it covers every 'authorized' movies (yes, including George Lazenby) and it's done to one of the best Theme.|
|Nov-18-15|| ||chancho: Thanks <WannaBe> Btw, this is (imo) the best Bond fight ever:|
|Nov-19-15|| ||WannaBe: Holy Batman, JACKPOT!!!
I was just foolin' around on YouTube and got a clip of Harlem Globetrotter, and did a search on "Lady with Two Left Feet", a.k.a. "Sweet Georgia Brown"
And I struck the mother-lode!!
Sachmo doing the intro https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jkx... But I wonder what is the technique where the clarinet player do the 'staccato' is called.
|Nov-19-15|| ||Jim Bartle: I have no idea how he gets that sound on a clarinet.|
|Nov-19-15|| ||WannaBe: Gonna be a fun Saturday, both Ucla & that other school play at 12:30 Pacific.|
Ucla never had much success at Salt Lake City and that other school goes to Eugene to face the red-hot Ducks (winner of 4 in a row).
In other news, Ucla basketball barely escaped Cal Poly at home. They will face Kentucky and North Carolina (at home) and visit Gonzaga (later in the season).
|Nov-20-15|| ||WannaBe: iPad Pro can't wake up.
Nice work Apple...
|Nov-22-15|| ||WannaBe: Finally, after almost 5 Qtrs, Raiders scores. Touchdown!! |
Still losing to Detroit. 9-7.
|Nov-22-15|| ||WannaBe: Raiders have the lead!! 10-9. (Exciting game)|
|Nov-22-15|| ||WannaBe: Crap, Raiders down again. 16-13.|
|Nov-22-15|| ||WannaBe: Crap, safety. Ugh! 18-13 Detroit.|
|Nov-22-15|| ||WannaBe: Raiders lose. =((|
|Nov-23-15|| ||WannaBe: Believe it or not, Bay area expecting to see some snow this week(end)!!|
|Nov-23-15|| ||WannaBe: News: UCLA QB Josh Rosen has now thrown 218 passes without an INT, snapping the Bruins' team record of 199 by Drew Olson.|
Reaction: Great. He just got jinxed, ahead of the cross-town showdown with that other school.
|Nov-23-15|| ||Jim Bartle: On the first series he should throw a 50yd. Bomb for an interception, just to get it out of the way.|
Anything to avoid a pick six.
|Nov-24-15|| ||WannaBe: Oh, goodie, Ucla is only down by 23 pts at half-time against Kansas, in Hawai'i.|
|Nov-25-15|| ||WannaBe: Just made another bunch of future 'investments' in SF Giants tickets. I picked games that will draw fans (I have some idea of which teams have fans that travel well, or Giants fans want to go see).|
First home stand (game 2, Friday) to open the season vs LAD, 2 tix.
Marlins, 2 tix (Personal use, want to see Ichiro before he retires)
Cubs, Friday 2 tix, Sunday 2 tix.
LAD, June 12, 2 tix.
Oakland A's, June 27, 2 tix.
See how these future 'investments' work out. =))
