The Hot Club

The Warden made an appearance. Looking around the HC he said he was leaving if he saw any religious banners. Separation of church and state and bar.

Saint James was assuring everyone that the Patriots would be facing the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl. In fact, St. James said that San Francisco would ‘batter’ the Giants. I told him that the Patriots would be euphoric if the 49ers beat the Giants. To face them instead of NY! To face a young team who hadn’t been there before…

The Fog slipped in to the HC. He said that the 3 most beautiful words in the English language are: paid in full. Not ‘I love you’. Paid in full.

It’s 3rd hand, but Peyton Manning has retired. Buffalo Steve told me. He agreed with Rob Lowe. Tweeting versus Facebook. Peyton may be retiring for bed, but I’m not sure he’s retiring from the Colts. However Manning has made his money and with 2 surgeries on his neck (including a fusion), well you don’t want to risk more serious injury.

Jimmy Chelo wondered if when the Ravens beat the Pats (2010 playoff) whether Rob Ryan was still the linebackers coach for NE. A check shows that Rob Ryan was a Pats’ linebackers coach from 2000-2003. Ryan then moved on to Oakland (’04-’08) where he was defensive coordinator, to Cleveland (’09-’10) in the same job and now Dallas (’11).

The Hot Club as Hotel California. Last Friday we were pleased to have in attendance: Sandy and her husband Mike, Ondine, Russ (Renee’s hubby), Nate, Paul Lancia, Contraire, 5 Angels, Chuck D Computer and the usual suspects.

At Mr. D’s suggestion, we will pause to remember some of the characters from days past who once were part of the Hot Club scene: the Caustic Cutie, the Silencer, Puckhead, Tinker Bell, Windex, the Smurf, Dot.com, Marathon Man and the Falcon.

Two bands that the Wiz likes - Goose Creek Symphony, a 70’s band from Kentucky that moved to Oregon, and Crunchy Western Boys out of New Hampshire. You can find videos of them on You Tube.

Fleet Feet Pete said to check out one of the first National Lampoon movies - Beaver from Outer Space. I checked and Disco Beaver from Outer Space was a National Lampoon production made for HBO (1978). IMDb gave it 3 stars (out of 5) and a 6.1 rating.

Charlie Clancy played Modern English’s I’ll Melt with You (1982). I remember seeing the video on MTV. When did MTV start? August 1, 1981 in New York.
