Hey! It's The Chattiest Tonight
 
This is fun! Everyone is chatty...Too much coffee or, is the world going to change tomorrow?:love:

gpelpel 01-19-09 10:32 PM

I cannot wait to be tomorrow. :thumb:

JoelS 01-19-09 10:35 PM

For me, not a blasted thing to do with tomorrow, which is just another day. I'm just fed up with the daughter. She has a major attitude problem tonight.

This is much more fun than what I'm supposed to be doing on my laptop.

I'm a big believer in structured procrastination . I just need to try harder to get my priorities sorted out...

PS - yes I'm glad about tomorrow's events, but I'm honestly more concerned to see what happens from Wednesday onwards; these are tough times.

Well I am excited about tomorrow, and still pinching myself. Unfortunately, the world will probably not change. But a very special man is about to become President. Obama has tapped into his potential, achieving his superstar that we all have but only a few seem to realize. So hopefully that will be inspiration for me to reach my potential, which I have decidedly had no interest in for too long.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.......

Is this the NorCal version of the what's up thread? Or maybe we should have just said, what's on your mind? Mindless, fruitless babling ... am I being coherent? Is this chatty enough?

blah blah blah .... like, oh my god!

There's nothing in the street that looks any different to me.

We do need one. This is as good as any, no?

taxi777 01-19-09 11:59 PM

I had too much coffee....blah blah blah...my normal self!

gpelpel 01-20-09 12:08 AM

Coffee? Yep, but only an expresso after lunch for me. Yummmy!

Make it so, #1

spingineer 01-20-09 08:56 PM

How's everyone feel now ... any different?

Beaker 01-20-09 09:06 PM

Jaded already, Ron?! I ended up seeing ~40mins; they webcast the inauguration at work. I was impressed - he gave a nice speech. Hopefully people can take something from this and do some good, it's what happens next that will be the real measure.

BTW - sorry chaps, but as a Brit, I heard Aretha Franklin do strange things to "God Save the Queen" again. I still can't get past that ;)

I'm not a big fan of Aretha Franklin's rendition of "My Country Tis of Thee" either.

I was too mesmerized by the bow to pay attention. Ma, Perlman, Montero, and Mcgill, on the other hand, were terrific!

Apparently she isn't either. She just said on Larry King that the extreme cold did it to her voice.

CoryTUrner 01-21-09 11:58 PM

i was in San Mateo court on Tuesday morning and we watched it on a MAC that they had up there....lol they held us back 45 minutes so everyone, including the judge, could just sit and watch the inauguration lol

i was guessing that was the case. She just didn't sound 100%.

Looks like they were good because it was a tape. The instruments couldn't bear the cold either. It was impossible to have all of them in tune under the conditions. The artists didn't even dare get their own instruments out, they played on their 'beater' cello and violin.

It wasn't so much any crackles in her voice, it's all the vocal embellishments (or whatever they're called). Myyaiyai Country tis a theeyeeyee.

I grew up to pretty intense blues and jazz...It's sounds normal to me...then I'm a zillion years older than you !!:twitchy:
:p

Seems to be a popular thing to do among people who can't sing very well, to mask that fact. Of course, I'm certainly not saying anyone who does that can't sing, and I'm definitely not saying that Aretha Franklin can't sing, but that kind of thing gets overdone a lot, and it can be pretty annoying.
