Title: The DTF Old As Mold Club v. 40 IS The New 30! Kids Stay Out!
Post by: Tick on April 27, 2009, 07:48:01 AM
Let me say that I'm thrilled this forum is back. I had not been around that long, but it was comfortable and I enjoyed posting here . Being an old fart, I loved the fogeys thread, so I figured I'd give the name of it a facelift. Being one of the oldest members on the board, I like the geriatric brotherhood ! :tup

("no grandpa, 'old as mold'. It's a saying.")

You crazy youngsters. Saying I can't hold a cold. When I was your age, we would have a cold for 3 months, and that was when they called the flu a cold still.

It was at the beginning of the month, but I don't recall if it meant April or May.  Since I never went to rehab, my memory is pretty pathetic.  It seems like the topic came up this month though.

Good for you.  I'm sure its not an easy decision to make but I'm hoping you will be successful and getting clean will improve your life.  I have a good friend who quit drinking about 4 years ago and he has never been happier.  Best of luck to you!!

An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen. The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly.'

The other man said, 'What is the name of the restaurant?'
The first man thought and thought and finally said, 'What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know... The one that's red and has thorns.'

'Do you mean a rose?'

'Yes, that's the one,' replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled,

'Rose, darling, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?'

Post by: TempusVox on April 30, 2009, 03:31:15 PM
Yeah...where the hell is The TP anyway?

Back on the topic of "done stupid poo", it amazes me not just of all the really stupid things I've done, but also all of the stuff I have crammed into my life thus far. It really does. The thing that panics me is all of the stuff I still want to cram into it. When I die, I know that people will say "He really lived a very full, rich, complete life." What troubles me is that they could say that right now! Hell, I've got about 70 more years worth of living to do, and if I'm really lucky, only about 40 more quality years left! I have not up until now, and will not ever grow old gracefully. Fuck that! I'm going out swinging when I go damnit! You better be able to continue doing shit in the afterlife, or I'll be really pissed off!

As for Carpe Diem, I truly try to do this everyday. I literally have way too much life to live in the time we're all given. If you can't say the same thing- unplug your computer, get off your ass, and get moving.

But if I look back on all the things I've experienced and accomplished, it seems like I'm looking at the lives of at least three people, and I'm only 45. Like Jerry Reed used to sing, "I've got a long way to go and a short time to get there."  Thats so true about life isn't it?

I was at an event a couple of years ago in Minnesota and got to spend some time with John Sandford. I'm a tremendous fan of his work, and it was really exciting for me. In my opinion he captures every day character dialogue like no one else in the business today. He also writes great stories too. But he told me he signs just about everything he signs now with ''Don't forget to enjoy the real world that exists outside of fiction. -John Sandford". He does this now because he meets so many people who live to read, and DO NOTHING ELSE! I've met those people too! How sad. My wife and I remind each other almost every day that life is short. It truly, truly is.

Post by: Orbert on April 30, 2009, 04:18:37 PM
I suppose it might be cynical, and also go against the spirit of the topic I myself brought up, but our peers who did all the same stupid shit we did and didn't survive... well, they're here to talk about it, are they?  So it's only logical that the ones who survived are the ones here to tell the tale, and the law of averages says that there will be a few.

I saw this movie a long time ago called Cherry 2000.  Typical post-apocalyptic crapfest where 99% of the population is gone and those who are left live in anarchy.  The main bad guy, Lester, leads a bunch of thugs around the wastelands on quadrunners.  They do what they want, take what they want, because there's no one to stop them.

There's this one scene where they're up on a hill, revving the quads, getting ready to do some raping and pillaging, and he looks at his buddies and says:

"Remember... Life Is Adventure!"

The character was meant to be dispicable of course, but I was like 12 years old and what stuck with me was the attitude.  Life is adventure.  You do what you have to do to keep going, and do what excites you and gives you a kick otherwise.  You don't know what's coming, and you sure as hell don't know when it'll all end, so have your fun now.  The only thing I would add is that you do all this without stomping on someone else's rights, but otherwise that's where I'm at.  Experience everything you can.  Do everything you can, see everything you can.  You get one shot... make it a good one.  It's only later that you realize how stupid it might have been, but some would say that a short, exciting, full life beats a long boring one.

my tenth anniversary on Friday.

Saturday night after a long day, I turned the light off at 9:30.
My wife proceeded to rip about a 25 second fart that trumpeted at the beginning..."saxed" at the end and scared the dog off the bed.

she then giggled herself to sleep.

I'm 34.

Yup.  Weekends take on a completely different meaning, especially if you have kids.  When you're young, weekends are for partying all night.  Somehow that gets reversed, and weekends become the time you actually can, or at least try to, get caught up on your sleep, after busting ass all week.

Had my 10th anniversary last month.  Went out to dinner at the restaurant I proposed at.  Very romantic.  We were so full after dinner, we put dessert off until later.  Checked into a hotel downtown Toronto, and ended up that the only place we could find within walking distance for dessert was Tim Horton's (big donut/coffee chain in Canada).  Stale cookie/donut and hot chocolate for dessert.

Good times.

Going to DisneyWorld next week for 10 days.  THAT will be good times.

Yup.  Weekends take on a completely different meaning, especially if you have kids.  When you're young, weekends are for partying all night.  Somehow that gets reversed, and weekends become the time you actually can, or at least try to, get caught up on your sleep, after busting ass all week.
Man..that is so true. 

It's like the age thing, when you are young, you want to be older, when you are older, you wish to be young.  Or at least to "look" younger.  I don't want to be younger, but I wish these gray hairs would go away.

my tenth anniversary on Friday.

Saturday night after a long day, I turned the light off at 9:30.
My wife proceeded to rip about a 25 second fart that trumpeted at the beginning..."saxed" at the end and scared the dog off the bed.

she then giggled herself to sleep.

I'm 34.
This is my life.
I'm 44 and that sounds like a typical night in my bed. See what you have to look forward too over the next 10 years. More of the same. :biggrin:

I never found out.  When we were kids, there were commercials for it all the time, but all I knew was that old people took it.  Don't know why, or what it did.  Now I never see it. Is it still around?

But Geritol <--> "geriatric" = "old person".  Can't be a coincidence.  It's a tonic for old people.

So, old people, my arthritis is aggressive it would seem. This is a bitch. So now I find myself wondering whether theres' anything I want to do with my hands that I never learned to do, because I want to do everything while I still can. I have a feeling I won't learn guitar with my kid after all, but that's alright. Still though, there's a nagging feeling that I need to hurry because a year ago this time I was fine and now both of my hands are in hte beginning stages of gnarling, and I'm 36.

I was thinking of makign a thread about "what would you do if you knew one of your appendages was going to become useless iwthin ten years" but I'm going to get nothing but "fap" and "fuck" :lol

Try piano instead?  That's a serious answer.  I can play the piano in my sleep, upside-down, or on combinations of drugs for which there are no names, but guitar and other stringed instruments elude me.  Fingers just can't do it.  But the piano is much more forgiving.  Hit the key, you get the note.  It seems like it would be less demanding for someone with limited function in their fingers/hands.


I was all set to come in here with a new topic, in a much less serious vein, but Jen's topic is serious and kind of a downer.

So I'll start it up anyway, because we need lighter fare to balance the serious, and I think we can handle two topics at once.  We're not that senile yet, right?  Wait... what was I talking about?

----------

I was sitting there in a food court last night, eating some KFC, digging on Colonel Sanders' special blend of eleven herbs and spices, when it occurred to me that you never hear them mention the special blend of eleven herbs and spices anymore.  Across the way is a McDonald's, and a thought comes unbidden into my mind:

"Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun"

And I found myself thinking about all kind of advertising slogans that I grew up with but never hear anymore.

"You're in good hands with Allstate"
"Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there"
"Give your cold to Contac"
"Tastes Great, Less Filling"

Anyone else?

It might just be a phase, but damn, I listen to "Oldies" now.  I'm pretty sure that makes me old.

finished a weekend of tent trailering with my family, dropped the trailer off at my uncle's who lives around the corner from the campground....his sort-of-adopted-son was there....good kid...20 years old. We shoot the shit for a bit when his new little hottie that he's been seeing shows up.

sighhh.....I think she was 20.
wow....wow...wow....I'm old.

I'm feeling older than ever.

I play guitar and sing in my church's praise team (my wife is the worship leader/lead singer).  We play every Sunday morning, and also a few songs on Wednesday nights.

This past Saturday night, we had our first "gig" at a Christian coffee house here in town.  We rehearsed Thursday night and Friday night, hauled our gear to the coffee house Saturday afternoon, played for 2 hours Saturday night, hauled our gear back to church, then a normal service Sunday morning.

I am beat.  Still.

another moldling checkin in with just a few jogs for memory...

for starters: My parents drove me home for the first time in the front seat of the car  :tup there were no safety belts in most cars I was in until I was 15. (<---unheard-of in today's world) Worn one with every car ride since then.

a commercial - I remember this being on TV:

HOT DOGS, Ar-mour HOT DOGS
What kind of kids love Ar-mour HOT DOGS?
Big kids, lit-tle kids, kids who climb on rocks
fat kids, skin-ny kids, ev-en kids with chicken pox
love HOT DOGS, Ar-mour HOT DOGS
The dogs kids love to bite!

Oh. My...Could we EVER get away with that "fat kids, skinny kids" stuff today??   oh, and you know P.E.T.A. would be ALL OVER that last line :xbones :police: :\

"Cool" definitely has persisted.  Things were cool back in the 50's, for cryin' out loud.  Things were still cool in the 60's, 70's, and on to today.

Meanwhile, things have been rad, def, phat, groovy, fine, and fresh, but they aren't anymore.  There are other examples.

Another one that's been around a while is "sweet".  Things were sweet back in the 70's, maybe even before.  Things can still be sweet now.  Things have been awesome since the early 80's or so, and that's not bad.

3 weeks sober today and its really fu*king up my sleep patterns, took the kids to Hurricane Harbor ( those not familair its a six flags water park) my body hurts in places i didnt know exist, not to mention the wicked sunburn
I'd been meaning to inquire.  WTG.  Is the shrink helping you at all?

Try melatonin.  It's not much use as a sleeping pill, but it's great for normalizing sleep patterns.  Sobriety has been known to fuck up peoples sleep, and melatonin is perfect for that sort of thing.

no shrink involved just organized group meetings twice a week, kind of like AA but with a counselor running the show, I've also attended a few AA meetings on my own locally just to get an idea of what to expect after the outpatient program ends....I'm just glad I realised my errors and was able to get help when i did...I listen to some of these people who have been abusing for years even decades alot of them have whats called wet brain syndrome, they have drank so much they have done permenant damage to the brains...one guy swore his dog commited suicide because of his drinking

Nah, they don't think your nuts. They just want you to jump through hoops to get the necessary care.  Its complete bullshit, but thats how insurance companys work. Its a power trip. Pay for your coverage, then fight your ass off when you need to use it. I fought for a year to get a shoulder surgery. I put up with pain 24/7 untill they finally gave in.
Have fun with the psych test. Show them the true meaning of nuts ! :tup

Definitely do your research.  Find out exactly what they're wanting to ascertain.  I always assume insurance companies are trying to weasel out of their obligations.  Make absolutely sure you don't inadvertently provide them with one by coming across too sane or squirrelly, whichever they're looking for.

wkiml... I second the melatonin suggestion for sleep problems.  Perfectly natural and not really a drug.  Just promotes good, restful sleep.  My wife is a nurse and always scrutinizes everything and we both take it before bed each night.  Never slept better.

It's a supplement.  It doesn't do anything to make you tired.  It merely chills out the squirrels in your head.  Melatonin (http://www.webmd.com/sleep-disorders/tc/melatonin-overview) 
However, if your Doc has a reason for keeping you off downers, you should certainly check with him first.

Right now I have zero cravings after the detox...but I have to be careful of what they call stress breakers something that may happen out of the blue that makes me go back, this is part of the IOP program how to recognize them and how to avoid the bottle when it happens ...besides I've been filling my free time in the  evenings which I used to spend drinking either walking the boardwalk ( I live 5 blocks from the beach) or just going down to the lake and doing some fishing


I read up on the Melatonin its seems to bring upon sleepiness ...I'll check with the doctor, he didn't want to prescribe anything that may put me out were as the apnea will not wake me back up

Post by: DTBiker on June 12, 2009, 11:39:50 AM
Definitely check with your Dr but I can't believe he wouldn't let you take it unless you're already on another sleep aid.  Its totally natural supplement and comes in different sizes... I take 3 mg orally and my wife takes 2 mg sub-lingual (dissolves under the tongue).  The sub-lingual seems to help her fall asleep quickly (15-20 min) where as the pill I swallow is more slow release and lasts more effectively through the night.  Don't know how it interacts with sleep apnea... most definitely check with the doc.

I have no problem falling asleep its staying asleep that is killing me....before with the apnea and drinking I was probably waking up as often but just didn't realise it because i was so drunk I would roll over and fall back to sleep, now that i'm not frinking i'm waking every 10-15 minutes through the night, if i get lucky i might get one or two 40 minutes stretchs during the night.

That definitely sucks.  I've had nights like that and you feel like you're not really sleeping at all because you wake too frequently.  It's miserable.  Did you check with your Dr about the melatonin?

@Tick...  I take glucosamine/chondroitin tabs during periods when my arthritis in my knees is bugging me.  I'm grateful that my arthritis is nowhere near as bad for me as it was for my Mom at this age.  She was on gold shots for years...

I've taken 3 sleep studies and have moderate ( just below extreme sleep apnea) but I am C-pap intolarant  cant take the constant air blowing in my face, I've been to a couple of throat specialists also to talk about surguries but the bottom line they all said is lose weight and the sleep apnea should lessen

As i mentioned earlier I have lost 28 lbs and have started an exercise program ( light ) as i have problems with my knees from carrying so much weight for so long  I walk about a mile and a half each night and have started a diet program so the weight should continue to come off just not as quickly

There is another machine that actually regulates itself as you breathe during the night delivering just the right pressure needed depending on what stage of sleep you are in, but my insurance will not cover it due to the expense $1200-$1500

You're just over a month into this, and it sounds like you're making very good headway.  Since you're obviously committed to getting better, I suspect that after six months you'll be a helluva lot healthier.  That probably will alleviate most of your problems. 

One thing I've noticed with taking melatonin is that I'll still wake up in the middle of the night, but I can usually fall right back asleep.  Before, I'd often spend 45 minutes trying to get back to sleep.  That really sucks. 

Don't know if this has come up yet, but I found that taking an interest in cooking was one of the most important steps in my getting healthier.  We Americans mostly eat shit.  Eating decent, home cooked food is crucial.  No unhealthy chemicals.  Much less cholesterol.  A fraction of the sodium.  Plus, it's an hour in the evening doing something productive.

Another "old fogey" thing. 

I wanted it to rain this weekend.  My lawn was starting to look like hell, and I was gonna get out the sprinklers like three times in the past month, but they kept saying we were gonna get rain, so I held off.  Then we'd get scatterred showers that didn't do shit. Friday night I got home and saw my lawn was basically brown, and I said "fuck, I have to water this weekend if we don't get at least a couple hours of good solid rain."

We got it Sunday afternoon.  I napped for three hours (yes!) listening to the wonderful sounds of thunderstorms and prog music.  It rained a lot overnight as well.  My lawn is saved and I didn't have to do any actual yard work.  Double Win!!

Greetings fellow old farts.  I am quickly zeroing in on the big 40(less than three weeks now), and would love to hear any quips of advice or info from the small handful of people on the DTF who have passed this grand milestone.
Also, out of personal curiosity, I wonder who the grand old man of the forum is.  I saw one reference in a post that revealed a 45 year old, but haven't seen any older.  Any takers on the DTF Grand Poobah title.
Title: Re: The DTF Old As Mold Club ! Ages 30 and over
Post by: Orbert on August 17, 2009, 04:44:45 PM
I just turned 47, but I thought there were at least a few guys here older than me.  My memory is slipping, though, so I can't be sure.  :lol

As for advice, just be aware that yes, your body is not the finely tuned machine that it was in your youth (if it ever was) and there are things that will not be as easy as before.  For most people, the obvious one is the eyes.  Statistically, your 40's are when your eyes most commonly start to go, and in general when you start to feel the effects of all the stupid shit you did to your body when you were younger and thought yourself immortal and indestructable.

This is made up for by the fact that, contrary to what young people believe, older folks really do know and understand a lot more.  Some call this "wisdom".  The bummer is that young people don't believe it.  My teenaged son, for example, cannot accept the idea that someone who's walked the earth three times as long as he has would actually know better, about anything.  It seems that every day I find something new that I could kick myself over.  "If only I'd known this when I was younger..."  But I'm not, and you don't get to go through it all a second time, so the best I can hope for is to pass on what I've learned.  But my idiot son will have none of it.  Makes me feel pretty useless.  Typically I yell at everyone for a while, then crank the stereo really loud.  Then I feel better.  If they don't like it, they can leave.  My house, my stereo, my rules.

I just turned 47, but I thought there were at least a few guys here older than me.  My memory is slipping, though, so I can't be sure.  :lol

Yea Orbert has me by 2 years but pretty much all he said....my body is in revolt for all the things I did to it when I was younger...my knees creek...my eyes are going ( although its not that bad a thing, some girls/ladies I would have turned my nose up on years ago...now look much more attractive...its that airbrush effect ( slightly blurred) ) My kids are at the point that they know everything, so now I just sit back watch them f*ck up and tell them told you so..if you would have listened to me that wouldn't have happened..Plus I get called "sir" alot now its actually quite nice

Hey, here's an advantage that doesn't get enough appreciation:  There are some women in their 30's, 40', maybe even older, that I know I wouldn't have looked at twice if I were younger, who now look pretty damned good.  There might be some airbrush effect going on, but at my age, a 30something babe is still quite a bit younger than me, and still qualifies as a "babe" to me.

So basically, those hot college girls still look good, and so do their older sisters, and some of their moms, too.  There's more to love and appreciate!  The scope has been broadened, range has been widened, whatever you call it.

Thank you!  (happily welcomed and damned)  If I recall that 1977 show accurately, Uriah Heep opened for them and I paid $7 for the ticket.  Show was at the Auditorium Arena in Denver.  I'm happy that I actually got to see shows like that and Zeppelin in my youth.  The younger set have, IMO, weaker, more mainstream 'pop' talent to point to as their first shows.  I nice exception to this rule are bands like DT and a few others holding the line on musicianship, writing, performance, originality, etc.

Exactly.  I grew up in the Denver area and I work there now, but glad to be living where I do.  I think you are talking about Seven Falls - yes, quite the tourist trap.  There are many better places to visit in the Pikes Peak area, methinks.

So, when can I expect said pains?

It's different for everyone, but as was pointed out upthread, most people agree that it's in your 40's when you start feeling all the effects of what you did to your body when you were younger, and start to notice that you're just not as young, quick, and sharp as you used to be. 

Most people who never wore glasses before end up at least getting reading glasses in their 40's.  The 40's is also when you first really notice that it's tougher to keep the pounds off; you can't eat like you used to and just metabolize it anymore, because your metabolism is slowing down.  That's why people in general start getting fat as they get older (that and the fact that most can afford more and better food, but don't shake the habit of eating everything in sight, given the chance).  That kind of thing. 

Plus, it's around now that if you had even a minor injury when you were younger, banged your knee on something, for example, it really starts to bug you now.  Sometimes.

But remember, people didn't even used to live to 40 most of the time.  George Carlin said that cancer, liver disease, heart failure, high cholesterol, all those horrible diseases... we used to have a cure for them.  It was called "death".  Modern science has enabled us to live well past the age we used to, but evolution hasn't caught up yet.  So we live in bodies where things are starting to break down and not work right anymore.  But it still beats the alternative.

Don't know if it'll make you feel any better, but it doesn't necessarily seem like "old fart" related issues, but rather something specific that happened.  And, if you rehab properly, you'll damn feel better once it's done.

Haven't posted here in a while.  Renovations still going on in my world.  Spent most of Friday and Saturday painting.  Since when do your lat muscles in your back ache after painting?  Well, they did yesterday.  Today isn't so bad.  Sunday was furniture moving day ... bringing in most of the stuff that was squirreled away into the garage for the renovation - bookcases, benches, boxes.  Basement is slowly but surely starting to take shape.

Wkimi... good to hear all of the positive progression you're making.

Way to go ! Take glucosamine 1000 mg. It helps your knees feel a bit better. Take it from a guy to installed carpet for 20 years. Talk about rough on your kness. Also, next time you want to reach for that bowl of ice cream, masturbate instead. :biggrin:

I think Sanchez is the real deal, and Brady needs some time to work out the ring rust. I like the Jets (second favorite team)so I enjoyed the victory.
My team is the Broncos so it may be a rough year my me.

The Jets have a great running game so they can ease him in but he produced in the second half when the Pats shut down the run.  Good sign for the Jets. 
Denver blew it up and it will take a few years.  Or mabye the curse of the Pats coaching staff continues.

TV Shows on DVD are awesome.  It's just a little weird when they fade down or otherwise do an obvious break because the commercial goes there, but it's so cool that you don't have commercials there that you get over it pretty quickly.

I went through the first season of WKRP in Cincinatti.  It was pretty cool; I'd almost forgotten how stunning Loni Anderson was, and I always thought Bailey was cute, though they didn't really do much with her until later seasons.  I don't think they ever did any more because Season One didn't sell well.

And of course the reason why it didn't sell well is because most of the music had been subbed out for "generic rock music".  Even when it was integral to the plot or punchline.  The rights to use the music on the TV show have to all be renegotiated when they make DVDs of them, and in most cases the suits just didn't consider it worth their time/effort.  Morons.

So when Dr. Johnny Fever raves on about callers who beg him "What can I do?  What do I take?" and in response he puts on a record and cranks it, it does not have Bob Seger screaming "Just take those old records off the shelf" but instead has some generic instrumental thing.  The joke isn't just ruined; the entire scene makes no sense.

The scene where Mr. Carlson walks into the booth while Johnny is playing "Dogs" by Pink Floyd (AC: "Do I hear... dogs?"  Johnny: "I do") -- gone.  They just cut the scene completely, which I guess is better than having another scene that makes no sense.

Post by: El Barto on September 30, 2009, 11:53:09 AM
They also overdubbed some of the dialog because it wasn't possible to remove the music without removing the talking as well.  The real irony is that the show did a lot to promote the music they were playing.  The gold record hanging on the wall of the bullpen was an honest to God gold record awarded to the show's producers by Chrysalis for being instrumental in the success of Blondie's Heart of Glass. 

Regardless, all four seasons are pretty easy to get online, recorded from Nick at Night with the original music.  I watched it all about 4 months ago.  Apparently, if stations still have the originals, then they're allowed to show them.  It's stations that purchase them now for syndication that has to use non ASCAP music. 

Oh, and Bailey is 10 times hotter than Loni Anderson.  Was in real life, too.

Wow, that's interesting. I didn't realize that about the music. I wasn't really into that show anyway. I do remember the episode after the trampling at The Who show.


I'm not sure I even remember Bailey.

Post by: Orbert on September 30, 2009, 04:00:25 PM
Yeah, I've heard that there are places online where you can find the originals.  I hate watching TV on my PC though, plus I still have not joined the 21st century and learned how to bittorrent.  It seems like everyfuckingthing is bittorrent nowadays.

Bailey Quarters was the station intern who started with a very small role, but they figured out how to better use her character as time went on.  And yes, she was definitely cuter than Jennifer (Loni Anderson).  Jennifer was the blonde bombshell who looked fantastic but you knew you didn't have a chance in hell, so there was practically no point to even looking at her.  Bailey was just a nice regular girl.  I'd much rather hang out with Bailey.

One of the running jokes on the show was that the owner, Arthur Carlson, was so clueless that he didn't know who Bailey was.  He did see some pretty girl around the office sometimes, but whenever he tried to ask who it was, something always came up to distract him.  Meanwhile, he'd hear things once in a while about how Bailey did this or that, and he'd say "Okay, get that Bailey guy to do it".

I was let go today, but I will continue to receive my normal pay until Jan 23rd at that point I can apply for unemployment benefits, and I will receive my severance package equivalent to one years salary, I also will receive my medical/dental benefits until 12/31/2010 as well as job coaching and job placement services until that date as well. It feels like a huge burden has been lifted from my shoulders, now I can go ahead and have my surgeries as well as have time for the gym, before looking for something new.

DTF is turning me into a grumpy old man.  All of these people keep started threads about top ten this or greatest that, and it's all total shit compared to the old days.  In the SNL thread, I'm the only person who mentioned stuff from the 70s and 80s (Millahh mentioned one).  Occasionally the more recent ones will do something funny; I chuckled at The Penis Mightier, but compared to the stuff we got to see, it's shit.  SNL has sucked ass for 20 years and those of us who were around 20 years ago know this. 

Then you have the top ten multiplayer games.  The new ones are cool, but nobody seems to appreciate anything that happened before 2007.  They disregard an era where style had to make up for a lack of technology.

It's pretty strange to me because this is a forum where damn near everybody can appreciate music that was made 20 years before they were born, but in any other category, only new stuff seems to matter. 
Title: Re: The DTF Old As Mold Club ! Ages 30 and over
Post by: Orbert on December 18, 2009, 11:00:53 AM
I agree.  But I'm not sure what the solution is, or whether it's even a "problem" in the first place.  Good music is timeless.  People still listen to classical from hundreds of years ago, to jazz from half a century ago, and classic rock from 30 or 40 years ago.  But that's because it's still around.  We had parents, older siblings, and friends' older siblings when we were growing up, and we heard the music, so it's in us.  They say that the music you heard when you were growing up will always be your favorite, no matter what comes after.

I agree that SNL has sucked 90% of the time the last 20 years, but they don't even show the originals in reruns anymore.  When's the last time you saw the original Not Ready for Primetime Players?  Ackroyd and Murray.  John Belushi.  If all you've ever seen is stuff from the last 20 years, that's all you can pick from.  Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if there's a fair segment of the population that think Mike Meyers was an "original" cast member, just because he was funny and was on when they were kids.

The situation with MP games is a little different, but maybe not such a mystery.  Unlike TV (and music, kinda), games aren't free, and if you're laying out your own hard-earned money on a game, you probably aren't going to take a chance on a game from a few years ago, even if you've heard some good things about it.  Not when all your friends are raving about the latest Halo or Doom or Final Fantasy or whatever.  (I have no idea if any of those games are any good or are good examples, because I've never played any of them.  I just seem to hear about them a lot.)  They're pushing you to shell out $50 for it so you can all play, and they already have their copies.  Or can you pay $40 for Diablo II (which still owns them all IMO) but you'll be the only one playing it.

I'm as old as anyone on this board and I think the early 90's SNL with Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, David Spade, Dana Carvey, and Phil Hartman(an all time great !) was pretty darn good.

That was a golden era.  I rate it every bit as highly as the original.  When I referred to the 80s incarnation, I wasn't referring to Joe Piscapo, but to Neelan, Lovitz and the great Phil Hartman. 

Outstanding point, Orbert.  There really isn't access to a lot of this stuff anymore.  I guess it just annoys me that people who can't know better think so highly of something that's a shell of it's former self.

Hey 7,GTFO of this thread, come back in sixteen years.

As for SNL, the original crew was the best.  Nothing could ever top the likes of the Bab News Bees, Samuri, landshark, or Rosana Ana Dana.

Eddie Murphy as Buckwheat is right up there as well.  80s and early 90s crew and skits were good.  Nearly everyone from those era's became household comedic names, or at least went on to some kind of primetime success.  Who has done that since the mid-90s... with any longevity.  Fey and Ferrell are the pretty much only ones that comes to mind - of course that could be because I don't know any other names.

Games... yeah, I had to chuckle at a lot of the comments on how the older games (Legend of Zelda for example) got slagged in the Top 200 of all time thread.  That list was clearly taking into account the effect the game had on it's own era of gaming - not just the quality of the game/or graphics (if that was the measuring bar, only games from 2008/2009 would qualify).  Really, Pong should be in there as the pioneer of home gaming.

Late 80's/early 90s was the 2nd Golden Age for SNL.  About 80% of the skits on any given night were great, and the rest were at least watcheable.

As far as MP games, well....I still have my most recent gaming system...an Atari 2600!

We didn't have Atari or Coleco or Intellivision.  We had some cheesy unknown-company product that had six built-in games.  It was a box that attached to the antenna leads of your TV and you set the TV to channel 3 to see it.  There were two controllers (generic things with a knob and some buttons on each) and a pistol-shaped thing for the shooting game.  My mom found it at the drug store for like $20.  We weren't exactly rich, and this was a way to get on the console bandwagon.  Oddly enough, I'd never even asked her for one.

It was kinda fun.  Pong clone, Breakout clone, the shooting game, and some others.  Honestly, though, I never got into the console gaming thing.  I think I played it a lot for a few weeks, then at some point I realized it had been sitting there for months and I hadn't hooked it up.

My kids have Wii and PS3, had N64 and Genesis before that, but whatever.  I'm more into board games.  Real, physical games.  I will kick your ass at Monopoly or Risk.

I don't know why they changed it, but my guess would be that people were too stupid to realize that a lower number can be a higher rank, so they switched them around.  The pieces have changed over the years, and I'm okay with that, but I still get screwed up when I play with a newer set with the numbers all "backwards".

Just in case this was a serious response (unlike the two follow-ups, which were funny, but... you know), yes.  We got Stratego for my son a few years ago, and we played a few games.  I should've been able to adapt, but it just kept screwing with me.  The Marshall is now 9, General is 8, etc.

Threw my back out shoveling last week (Thursday) went to the gym for my session with the trainer today, mentioned to him what happened and that I'm still sore/stiff. HE turned to me and without blinking an eye says " Okay I guess we should work on strengthening the back  today so it doesn't happened again"  I looked at him like WTF, I was warning you so I didn't have to do any back exercises today you Idiot....Needless to say, it took me about 20 minutes to get out of my car and up the stairs on all fours to write this.

Umm... yeah.


Anyway, I always watched Soap.  It was so bizarro.

Soap was one of the first, if not the first, TV shows to go for laughs by being downright way-the-fuck out there.  Things like Married... with Children and 3rd Rock from the Sun often had the same kind of humor (someone would say something out loud that you just know nobody would really say), but to me were never as funny because it felt too forced.  The writers knew it would get laughs simply because it was so off-the-wall.  Before Soap, sitcoms were funny and sometimes absurd, but always had one foot in reality.  Things were funny, but you always see how someone clueless or whatever could end up in that situation.

With Soap, there were moments of "What the fuck?" that really broke new ground as far as network TV went (which is all there was at the time anyway).

One of the things that's struck me about it was several rather cavalier references to abortion.  Any time one of the women gets in trouble,  they always announce "yeah, I think I'll keep it,"  like not keeping it was actually a perfectly normal and appropriate option to them.  I don't think shows today are supposed to treat abortion as anything less than evil.  I suppose that probably wasn't anything specific to the show itself as much as the time it was aired, though. 

It just seems rather odd to me that as shocking as the show was supposed to have been in the 70's (boycotts, complaints, stations refusing to air it), it's of course quite tame by today's standards, except that, which probably didn't turn any heads at all in 1979.

I do think that "All In The Family" broke open the doors to comedy that people once though were untouchable subjects.

I agree that "All in the Family" broke some ground, but my biggest problem with "All in the Family" was that Archie Bunker was a raging ignorant bigot, and people thought it was hilarious.  As a minority, that bugged the fuck out of me, and I had trouble seeing anything other than a raging ignorant bigot.  I'm pretty sure I never laughed once watching that show.

Archie may have had his flaws, and was a loud blow-hard, but someone always put him in his place or demonstrated that he was wrong, even it it didn't occur to Archie.

Soap was awesome, and I think it opened the door for one of my favorite shows in the 80s - Sledge Hammer!  Any fellow Hammerheads on DTF?

I guess the idea was to show how being like that is wrong, as he did tend to get put into his place.  But I rarely got to the resolution.

I remember a commercial for "All in the Family" that aired a lot.  It showed Archie Bunker reading through a list of... I think it was political candidates for something.  He reads the names out loud, and they're all names with clear ethnic backgrounds.  One is Hispanic, one is Italian, one is Japanese, and one is Anglo.  Bunker says "Hmm, a Spic, a Whop, a Jap, and a regular American."  Lots of laughs.  I'm sorry, but that was supposed to be funny?

Am I oversensitive to it because I'm a minority and have actually lived with racism and prejudice?  Definitely.  I guess I can see the "Ha ha, he's such an idiot" humor there, but the problem is that even if the idea is to ridicule Bunker, there were undoubtably people going "Yeah, and...?" because they don't see the problem in the first place.

Something I've only now fully realized, but my fellow fogies will also appreciate, is how much concert sound has improved since the good ole days.  It happened so gradually that you never really noticed that all of a sudden everything sounds great now.  I just got in from seeing Porcupine Tree, and it was fantastically loud, but still crystal clear and mixed flawlessly.  Remember all those arena shows in the 80s where you could barely make out what song they were playing?  I have a hard time remembering the last concert I went to that really sounded like shit.   I often wax nostalgic about the great, hedonistic concert mentality of our youth, but this is one damn welcome improvement.  I still think there's an appalling lack of nudity, conflagration and wanton drug use at today's concerts, but it's nice to be able to hear it well while still getting your insides rumbled.

Big difference today El Barto.  I'd say the best sounding concerts have been PT for me.  The first time we saw them my wife, brother and I were mouth opened with that stunned look.  It's something I wish bands would have on albums today.  That separation of instruments yet loud and clear. 

Pink Floyd sounded like nothing i've ever heard in 1994 and in a stadium to top that.

If you're comfortable admitting it to us, admit it to your doctor.  That's how you proceed.  Though to be honest, the word random suggests psychological causes, which is quite often the case.  You mention being in incredible shape, but it's probably your mental state that's the real consideration.

We all go through emotional funks from time to time.  Learn to cope better with stress and eventually you'll be in a better mindset and forget about your issue.  For the time being, pressure is a bitch. 

Were it me, I'd get myself checked to be on the safe side, then work out my stress/depression/WTFever on my own.  Unfortunately, I suspect the doctor's solution might be SSRIs.  It's unfortunate that they've become the solution to all of life's problems.  Kind of a cop out, if you ask me.

A trip to see the doc to be sure sounds like the best first step.  It does kinda seem like SSRIs are kinda a "catch-all" solution to these kinds of things nowadays.

Not to derail a serious moment, but when you said "I'd get myself checked", it reminded me of the horoscope that came from Onion News this morning:

The stars, in their infinite wisdom, recommend that you check yourself this week, as not doing so might lead you to wreck yourself in the future.

SSRIs are antidepressants - prescriptions like Lexapro, Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, etc.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selective_serotonin_reuptake_inhibitor

Questionable though - many years ago, my doc prescribed Paxil for me.  It made me completely physically incapable of "finishing", despite proper stimulation.  So if they suggest any kind of medication, may want to ask about any potential side effects, in hopes that they won't exacerbate the issue you're being seen for in the first place.

Every doctor I've ever been to has wanted to prescribe one to me; even an ENT.  I recognize completely that stress or depression is the root of a great many problems, but random tinkering with brain chemistry is a pretty hap-hazard solution.  Ole Doc Millah might have a better insight, but it sure seems like a shitty approach to practicing medicine, IMO. 

On a side note, how's your blood pressure?  The leading cause of a shitload of problems, including yours.

Our son was diagnosed years ago with ADHD, BiPolar Disorder, and a few things I'd never even heard of, and his shrink did the whole "family consultation" thing.  She met with him, met with my wife and I separately, and then all together.  At some point, she suggested I try taking something that would help me feel less stressed and a bit more accepting and mellow in general.  At the time, I was willing to try anything, so I did.

It was interesting.  I did feel less stressful and generally mellower.  She strongly recommended against drinking coffee while taking the pills, though, and that was a tough one.  Less stressful is good, but getting your work done is also good, and not being as efficient at work was causing stress and countering the effects of the pill.  So I gave up the pills and went back to coffee.  It's cheaper, too.

BTW, I know I'm getting old.  My kids were out of town all week with my parents, and my wife and I DIDN'T...DO...ANYTHING.  We just kind of enjoyed the peace and quiet.

We've definitely done that.  We watched a few films we hadn't gotten around to, and went out to eat a time or two.  Nothing special, but it's been great.

We used to do that when the kids were younger.  It was awesome.

You don't have to do anything.  Just take some time to reconnect as a couple.  The couple you were when you were dating, and when you first got married before the kids came (if you actually did things in that order, which I guess isn't a given).

This week will be strange.  Our daughter is away at camp, and our son turns 18 on Wednesday.  The celebration of his attaining legal adulthood will be somewhat hampered by the fact that he hasn't actually done anything he needed to do prior to this event.  Find a job, find a place to live, actually come up with a plan for what he's gonna do with his fucking life.

But whatever.  I'm getting too old to give a shit anymore.  I've tried for 18 years to help this kid, offer the wisdom I've gathered and maybe help him avoid the same mistakes I made, and he's refused it every step of the way.  Let him find out how the world works the hard way, I guess.

We didn't, really.  When my wife and I met and started dating, her daugher from a previous relationship was 18 months old.  After the scumshit parental unit GAVE UP his parental rights, I adopted her after we got married.  But basically, we've never had a time when it was just us, before kids.  That's why we really like it when the kids are away.

Ah, the pain of being old.  My son turned 18 the other day.  I am now father to an adult.

Also, I seem to have this adult living in my house who does not pay rent, does not have a job, and realistically, given the way the economy is right now, doesn't actually have a decent chance of finding one.  Yeah, grocery stores always need baggers, fast-food places always need people, but amazingly, no bites yet.

So now he's our slave.  Garbage and recyling detail, moving the cars around when we need them, driving his little sister places when we're both at work, etc.  He's gonna pay his way somehow, dammit.  And if doesn't like it, he can find a damned job and move out.

Except he can't find a job.  Well, ain't that a bitch?

On the integrity part.  Mabye people took me the wrong way, but the once angry man who loved the angry or sexed up lyrics is not the same person.  I think we all go through this as we get older but I can still crank the old songs still. I just feel differently about them.

I have a quesiton for those married or in long term co-habiting relationships. It's been said that the mating instinct is behind "falling in love" which may or may not lead to *true* love. So, did you experience the falling out of love and have to make the transition to genuine love - love for the other person that requires effort?

I can imagine a situation when after the initial "I can't believe this is happening to me" of "falling in love" when the other person's independence becomes clear, say they want to do something you don't or even away from you. How did you deal with that? What tells you that your spouse is committed to you, how do you know?

Part of a long term relationship is the sacrifice.  Once I knew my wife was the one you realize you have to do things that makes her happy and she would do the same.  I'd say that I love my wife even stronger now because of the experiances we went through together.  It's bonded our love even stronger.

Andy, I've never realy thought about what your asking throughout our courtship and 15 plus years of marriage because I dove head first into our relationship and never looked back.

The initial headiness is not "falling in love."  The transition you're talking about is falling love.  And it develops naturally.

There's nothing to deal with.  Everyone is different, every woman you meet will have tastes different than you, and will want to do some things that she finds fulfilling that you couldn't care less about.  Let her do them, that's not a issue of commitment.

That's what I'm suggesting, it's not falling in love, the love comes after. I wouldn't know as I didn't get the chance to consumate a "falling in love" feeling.

I hear you.  I remember driving through my neighborhood one time, and these kids were playing ball in the street.  No biggie, I don't have a problem waiting for them to move out of the way, if they seem to not intentionally be taking any longer than necessary.  One of the kids had his back to me, and someone else yelled something at him, so he turned around and literally stood there looking at me.  He then yelled something to his friends (probably "watch this!") and crossed him arms.  So now he is standing in the road, facing me, arms crossed.  Are you kidding? 

I hadn't stopped anyway, only slowed way down, so I continued toward him.  He stood there facing me down, then dashed out of the way at the last second, yelling something at me as his friends laughed.  Moron.

I am scared of the thought of my daughter becoming a teenager!

I can't wait until I'm a father so I can start condoning the behavior that made me a parent in the first place.


Wait, who am I kidding, I'm in no danger of becoming a father.

My son Kenneth was telling me about something his friends said.  One of them said "Have you ever seen Kenneth's dad?"  The other said he wasn't sure.  The first one said "Oh, you'd know it because he looks like he could kill you."   :lol  (I think I may have told that story here before.)

Honestly, I'm not looking forward to my daughter starting to date, but I don't expect much trouble, once I sit the boy down and "explain" things.

Part of a long term relationship is the sacrifice.  Once I knew my wife was the one you realize you have to do things that makes her happy and she would do the same.  I'd say that I love my wife even stronger now because of the experiances we went through together.  It's bonded our love even stronger.

Andy, I've never realy thought about what your asking throughout our courtship and 15 plus years of marriage because I dove head first into our relationship and never looked back.

The one time I was on the receiving end of that talk, 86 or so, the girl's father was a dead ringer for Arne Anderson.  He was also a former Dallas cop, and an avid bow hunter.  He made sure to demonstrate to me the workings of compound bows for quite a while.  Not pleasant at all.

Of course I was already doing dirty, dirty things to his daughter, so I think I won that round.

At least he loves his daughter and shows his emotion because he does. I guess at least you should admire that even if his a bit abrasive?  I know myself, and I will give shit to my daughters boyfriends if warranted. If they win my respect however, they will certainly get it. If they don't I will be there worst nightmare! I love my daughter so much it hurts!

Going before Christmas. I'm going from the 13th to the 19th. I am taking my daughter out of school for a week. We did this in 07 and it worked out well. When I'm spending a lot of money I like to maximize it by having smaller crowds. It was great in 07.

This is a big year in my house. My daughter turned 10, my wife turned 40, and I celebrated my 15th wedding anniversary, so Disney had to happen this year!

Back to Sci Fi. If there are 3 people, one has to sit alone in the car? I talked to my wife this morning and she is going to book it if there is still availability. It sounds fun, and I love a good burger!

12th wedding anniversary this year
son turns 8
wife and I just turned 36.

I like how your numbers lined up this year for the Disney trip....that will be us in a couple. We go to Florida every year because my mom owns a house in Porte Charlotte. This year will be no different. We'll go in March. Arrive in Tampa on a Thursday, do an overnight in Tampa and spend the Friday at Busch Gardens, then see a Tampa Bay Lightning (playing our home town Ottawa Senators) in Tampa. Then back to Porte Charlotte for the rest of the week.

Well, my wife just turned 40, but I just turned 46. Its ok though, I am young at heart.
I found out when I met my wife that as a teen I dated her babysitter. That was weird.She was 23 when we met and I was 29. I loved the fact that I met a girl who knew nothing about me or the fact I was a lead singer in a popular band. She quickly heard from many women to avoid me because I was a whore master. I told her, don't believe rumors, I'm really a nice guy. (Sure I had my share of women, but I was rarely a dick to the point that I used women)She decided to judge for herself and found out I was the nicest gentlemen she had ever dated. She then told her friends they were dead wrong about me! We got engaged 6 months later, and then married 12 months after that.

Tick,the cars have 3 rows in them that seat 2 people each. It's possible that they may put a couple in the last row behind you, but it's not intrusive at all. They show old wacky monster movie space alien clips on a giant screen. It's very cool.
The burger wins by default because it's the only one that doesn't give me a stomach ache down there.

The coolest thing about the All Star Music is the wall of fame. All great pictures of music celebrities at Disney. I've had my pic taken with the Alice Cooper one a couple of times.

Unbelievable.  We had such a good time.  The weather could not have been more perfect.  It apparently never snows or frosts in Bermuda.  Their all-time record low was something like 46.  The high/low when we were there was like 78/74 or something like that.  We stood in waist deep water and were able to see our feet as clearly as if we'd been standing on dry land.  Took a 10PM glass bottom boat excursion into the triangle.  They had big lights that illuminated the water below, so we could see the fish, coral, and the shipwreck of the HMS Vixen.

There was a little cove near where our ship was docked, where we went to get some pictures of the sunset.  Just as the sun was nearing the horizon a boat came along.  I got several pictures, but the photo op was one I'll probably NEVER have again:

Very nice.  That would've been entirely up my alley.  Funny enough, the next day, we went back to this cove to actually get IN the water (which was surprisingly cold).  We rented a little paddle boat (foot action pedals) and paddled out and around for a half hour or so.  Upon getting back to the beach, I notice there's two topless chicks on the beach directly in front of us.  So we pull our boat up onto the sand, go back over to the stand to turn in our life jackets, and I mention to Mrs. Coz "I didn't realize this was a topless beach" and she's like "What are you talking about?"  I point out the two chicks and say "they were directly in front of us and we walked right past them."  She reminded me that she doesn't have a "boob radar" like I do.  :lol

I have been to Disney 7 times in the last 10 years and 10 times total in the past 15  and always stay at one of the All-star resorts. I don't need a fancy room, hell the only time we are in it is when we are sleeping. Rather have the extra cash to spend while in the parks. I still use my kids as an excuse to go, but I'm really just going for myself.

All of it was awesome.  Our total alcohol bill was around $240, so that wasn't too bad.  There was the main dining hall and a cafe that was basically a huge circular buffet.  Breakfast and lunch were at least a two plate meal each day.  At dinner, I had the chance to try snails (in a thick garlic butter sauce) and lobster tail.  Neither bowled me over.  I would eat the lobster again, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get it.  I figured that since we weren't paying for food, I'd try things I wouldn't normally.  Otherwise, it was all I had hoped it would be.  Food was excellent.  I had many banana daiquiris.  I don't care if they're girly or not.  They were loaded with rum and pirates drink rum, so it has enough manly element to it to be okay by me.  :lol

I've seen that, it's definitely not cheap.   They remove all the labels and pack the cigs in another box (e.g. Dominican-made), then mail the labels to you in a separate envelope.

But this ban on Cuban cigars is getting silly, especially in these times.

They are over rated and needlessly expensive. American's create the shortage and then suffer the monetary consequences.

Villagers.
Swiss made.
Excellent cigar, the tobacco is not cuban though...not sure where it's from but it's a much better smoke.
I know.
I've been to Cuba.
Same with Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee.......there is better CHEAPER coffee.

very "military" they seperate you from whomever you're travelling with during the passport/ident inspection phase in a small room with doors on either side. They also respect you might be american so they stamp a piece of paper.and slip it into your passport, which you can remove after your trip.

for a poor country we were shocked to see them with a body temp/thermal imager during the Swine Flu thing.

I'm wondering where  I can take a woman for a date at night in the city after work. Going for dinner sounds good. What do/have people here done?

Also to be able to have some quiet time together during or after - I've found that taking a short walk provide some moments for this although in a city you've got to stop and go to one side for a bit if you want to avoid crowds.

Also, what if you go somewhere for dinner in an area where you're not familiar - do you just generally walk in and ask for a table?

Post by: El Barto on October 30, 2010, 04:52:21 PM
Dating or otherwise, I usually familiarize myself with a place before I eat there. 

If I'm planning dinner with an eye towards getting to know someone, I might be inclined to pick some place where there'll be a wait for a table.  An extra 30 minutes to sit at the bar or sit outside and people watch is a bonus in that situation.

Yup.  Not much to add upon there.

A different consideration, though, is that you don't need to spend all of your time together.  Maintain your separate lives and see how much you want to include the other person.  Trying to force the situation is a bad plan.  Make time when you can and don't fret when there's isn't any.

And yes, it was a rotary phone.  Touch-tone cost like another $2 a month, which my parents wouldn't pay.

I would imagine just because when you don't have an opportunity to see the other person, it still feels nice to hear their voice once in a while, by making a call just to chat about what's going on or whatever.  I mean, if you really have nothing to talk about, then obviously don't call for nothing, but surely there's something you could find to chat about, right?  You would "chat" about it via email or text, just in a slightly different manner.

When I started dating my wife we couldn't get enough of each other. When she would stay the night with me we would routinely have conversation literally into the wee hours of the morning. That's how into each other we were. I would often be shot for work in the morning.
Of course every relationship is different, but I just feel if you really don't have much to say to each other early in a relationship when its new and fresh, you probably are not a match meant to be.

That's how I feel, but I guess the other possibility would be when two people are both shy and need time to become more comfortable with each other? Then maybe things become more natural?
This is probably possible but hard for me to personally relate to because I am the opposite of shy.

There are a handful of them that have I have become close personal friends with, and I see 4 or 5 times a year. A couple of friends I have made I don't even interact with online anymore. I only see them in person and enjoy my time with them. I have even taken a vacation with one family after our wives became so close they talk more then we do.

Orbert you nailed it, when we were younger we had no other way of communication, it was either face to face or on the phone. With all the technology today, the younger generations have just become accomidated with IM/Texting and the whole sort. I am in no way knocking whats out there, I have gotten back in touch with alot of friends/classmates via modern technology that I would never have heard from again if not for it.

But that's what makes us old fogeys special we can appreciate both

This generation has no clue. Think about how it was when we were younger.

We remember sleeping on sidewalks in subzero weather (at least I do)for concert tickets! That's old school and something this generation can't relate to. On top of that, you went nuts trying to find out when your favorite artist was going on tour and where they would be playing.

We remember driving around to find a phone booth so we could make a phone call.

We remember hearing about, "the internet, the information superhighway" for the first time and thinking what the hell is that and what good will it do?

We remember walking into a record store and seeing a new record from a band you love and having no clue it had even been released. Now people are counting day the days months before a artist makes a release.

We remember when TV went to cable and you went fro 13 to 36 channels!!! and now of them had snow on them when you watched.

So different to watch my daughter at age 10 think nothing of the way things are now.
It makes its easier to relate when my mom tells me of the days when they just listened to the radio because they had no TV.

Of course all of this is true, but I guaran-goddam-ty you that your parents thought the exact same thing.  "When we were Tick's age, we couldn't talk all day on the telephone.  We actually had to get together to visit!"  Their parents before them did the same thing.  While we reflect back and think that our ways were better, we wouldn't consider our parent's era to be.  "Those people didn't even have cassette tapes!" I have fond memories of camping out behind TM to score tickets for the Somewhere In Time Tour.  The first time I heard Kill 'Em All was waiting in line for [God knows what] tickets.  Yet, I certainly would have liked to have some of the tech kids today take for granted.

I know one thing that was great when I was a kid. Entire neighborhoods would gather after school and play football or baseball on the school playgrounds or wherever.

One of the best football games I remember from my childhood was in a driving rainstorm.  We had a full 1 acre lot with perfect grass and trees only where the endzone would be.  On a good day we'd get 6 on 6.  Tackle, too.  I can't imagine too many kids playing tackle football in a thunderstorm nowadays.

Man, I used to play tackle football when I was like 15 against a rival neighborhood. We hated each other and these games were brutal. We were almost playing gang football because we were out to hurt each other.
I remember one kid breaking his leg in one game. In another a kid dislocated his shoulder. Blood was common place. I look back at it all now and realize how insane it was at times. The final score wasn't as important is how many of there players you injured.
Of course I also played games amongst friends when we weren't trying to hurt each other.

Absolutely.  This is something my kids never do.  I have the fondest memories of coming home from school, tossing my books on the floor(homework undone), and rushing out to play baseball, football, hockey and basketball with all the neighborhood kids.  We even ran a kind of "capture the flag" army game.  It was wonderful.

Ahh the memories.....we did the same , games amongst friends were usually played with none or very little equipment, games against neighboring rivals we would all suit up in whatever rag tag equipment we could get together. I can remember one kid who used to tape railroad spikes to the inside of his formarm , than he would line up over an offensive lineman as just as they came off the line he would slap their helmet with the inside of his formarm, thus knocking them to the ground and leaving a severe ringing in their ears .

Also I played alot of goalie in street hockey, since my skating skills were terrible, and finding an old sofa/couch cushion in someones garbage and making goalie pads out of them...taping them to my shins, so I wouldnt come home black and blue.

So it's important to be able to enjoy or accept solitude and manage the time spent with the other person in a relatinoship but do you have any advice about how often to see them? And how often is healthy?

You can't control another person, you should be able to spend time alone, have your own things to do but it's balancing staying connected with not using them to avoid being lonely or "feel single". What's the key ingredient - patience? Asking constantly for feedback in the early stages could make the other person panic.

I understood that a relationship should ideally add to your life rather than be it. But at the same time don't you have to keep at bay the urge to use it to avoid being alone?

I had the same conversation with my boss's wife last night.  You just don't see kids outside playing anymore.  Not at baseball fields, basketball courts, playgrounds, not even front yards.  Kids should be arguing over the arbitrary ground rules for whatever game you are playing.

Because every person is different, every relationship is different because it's formed of two people.  Therefore there is no one answer that will be right for all situations.  That said, there are plenty of "general rules" which apply.

The answer to "How often is healthy?" is "Whatever works for the two of you."  You're not going to get an answer like "No more than once per week" or "At least twice a day" or anything concrete like that, and if you do, it will be from people merely saying what worked or didn't for them in the past.  It may or may not apply to your relationship at all.

Most people enter relationship with some uncertainty, even nervousness.  It's a new situation, and with any new situation, there are unknowns.  She may therefore look for a lot of reassurance.  Remind her that you like spending time with her; find things to compliment her on and do it.  Make it a pleasant experience for her, and you'll find that she enjoys your company as well, and pretty soon you're seeing each other more.  But because you're an unknown and she may be nervous, you don't want to smother her by constantly talking about these things, as it can make you come across as nervous and uncertain and having nothing else to talk about, and that can be a turn-off.

Maybe she's Some girls are fine with whatever, because she already likes you.  She doesn't want to hear you talking about her all the time; she wants to know you.

There is no one single answer that always works for everyone, every time.  You just have to learn to "feel" when you're doing it right, when you're doing enough, and when you're going too far.  That's why your first few relationships almost never work.  You don't know what you're doing.  But the only way to learn is by doing.  Getting advice can only help in the learning process; it cannot give you the experience to actually know and recognize the signs.

And that's why it's easy to get discouraged.  If you try something and fail the first several times, it's easy to just say "Okay I suck at this, forget it."  But this isn't a sport.  This is someting humans are literally born to do.  Find a mate and procreate.  First things first, of course, but every person gets better at it, and everybody eventually finds someone.

So yes, the key ingredient is patience.

And to Orbert, excellent points.  Even when a relationship is twenty years old, it is still a living and growing thing.  It is up to the partners in the relationship to accept that and themselves develop through the changes.

I've been coached to ask for feedback but straight away the feedback I got to trying to get feedback seemed that this would be a turn-off so asking if done has to be done very subtly or if critical maybe.

Ultimately I agree, but friendships have always been used for passing on advice and advice means every generation doesn't have to learn everything from trial and error which would surely be impossible.

Thansk for the advice.

About telephoning - we've been emailing regularly. So phoning seems right only for practical necessity e.g. finding eachother, confirming at last minute etc. So I'm trying to "feel" what's right and at the moment it doesn't seem right to call. If I do, I can't help but feel I'd come across needy or controlling. I feel the best thing is to be relaxed, ease up but at the same time not let things slip away.

Okay okay, I was being a smartass with the telephone remark.  I realize that texting and emailing are perfectly valid forms of communication.  They are also more convenient for a lot of people, and if you're used to it, I'm sure you don't feel like you're missing out on something.  But I really do believe that people today who use it more than actual voice communication are missing out on something that my generation had.  I've been in long-distance relationships a few times, and believe me, there's still nothing like actually talking to the other person, hearing their voice and speaking to them, in real time.

Killing mice is fun, and when you kill invaders in your house, you get that great sense of accomplishment.  You're the man, and for the privilege of being your woman, she cleans everything including your underwear.


Compare that to the thrill of doing your own laundry, including your underwear.

Culturally, you always hear about the third date.

For health reasons, some people wait a couple months and then check with a sex advisor (not sure what they are called) to make sure it's the healthy thing to do.

For moral/religious reasons, a lot of people wait til marriage.

From the posts I've seen from you, you seem like a conservative, traditional guy, so maybe you would be more comfortable waiting.  There's no serious harm in waiting, so if you are unsure if premarital sex is moral or not, it's safe to wait.

I have never been in a physical relationship, so I'm basically basing my input on other people's experience.  I don't think I have the right to comment on specifics.

Once again, every situation is different, and yet there are commonalities.

My basic philosophy is this: Humans are animals, and despite the development of our wonder brains and all the rules and laws and civilizations we've built that we like to think put us above the lesser creatures, we're still slaves to our biology.  When you're kissing her, the smell of her breath will be nice.  This will trigger a pheremonal response in you; in other words, you'll get turned on.  You will also emit pheremones which she, if she's ready, will also respond to.  Things escalate from there.  That's why in movies and on TV, the cliché is always physical proxmimity and contact, making out, then clothes start coming off.  Unless you're both already horny as hell, you have to work up to it.  This tends not to happen with couples who have not been intimate before.

The first couple of times you make out, you may enjoy it just fine but feel no twitching between your legs.  Don't worry about it; let it happen naturally.  Natural is always best; rushed and doing it because you think you should is not going to result in success.  If you're compatible, at some point Mother Nature will take over and you'll start feeling more than just "fine" and start feeling more than just physical attraction.  You'll harden up and feel the urge to stick it in her.  Crude, yes, but that's exactly what is happening at that point; your animal instincts have taken over.  The best thing you can do is guide them using your brain, which is slowly losing the battle for control of your actions, mostly because it's never had to contend with another part of your body for dominance before, and it isn't used to the competition.

If you're compatible, the same thing is happening to her.  She too has chemicals rushing through her body, telling her to use it, to receive you.  It's all biology.  But she's having a similar struggle.  Her brain is full of all the stuff she's accumulated over the years, telling her it's wrong, questioning whether you're the one, already thinking about tomorrow and if she'll feel guilty or fulfilled or a real woman or just a whore.  Your goal is to overcome all this, but actions speak much louder than words.  If you try to reassure her, you'll just sound like a guy feeding her lines to get her clothes off, because that's exactly what you are at that point.  Instead, do it physically.  Slow down.  Hold her a lot, kiss her a lot but don't smother her and don't try to turn her on.  Against everything you're feeling, it must happen on her schedule, not yours.  She must be comfortable.  If you do anything she's not ready for and willing to do, not only will the sex be bad, but you're a rapist and a bad guy, which is much worse.  There will be other women, but not in prison.

This is the difficult part.  Or, as my dad memorably put it to me when I was a teenager, "a hard penis knows no conscience."  He was an English major.

I don't agree that morality isn't involved, it's always involved in my view. What I don't udnerstand is in a Christian relationsjhip where you're not supposed to do anything that arouses the other, what on earth are you supposed to do as an adult couple? I can understand wanting to save the full act for a committed relationship but does that have to be marriage and can't you do anything else?

Holy shit!  You're actually asking me about that are you?   :lol

To be clear, I'm a big fan of ethics.  I just think that basing personal ethics on relative social norms, i.e. morality, is a damn fool thing to do.  If a person feels the need to wait until he/she is in a committed relationship, bully for them.  That seems like a perfectly reasonable stance.  There's a big difference between a committed relationship and the permanence of marriage, though.  I'm pretty strongly of the opinion that waiting for marriage is a very bad thing to do.  Chemistry is damned important, and that includes sexual chemistry.  Nobody in their right mind would buy a TV without looking at a few different models, yet for some reason people seem to think that sex is something where you should just hope for the best.  I say that sexual chemistry is far more important than picture quality and contrast levels.

Andy, once again you are overthinking things.  You've heard that before.

True, there are important yet sometimes subtle differences between what is legal, what is ethical, and what is moral, all based on your personal value system.  Somewhere in with "ethical" and "moral" you may have the religious or spiritual aspect, or not.  Et cetera.  So yeah, it's complicated.

You can drive yourself insane trying to balance all the factors, or just go with what seems right, what feels right according to your definition of "right."  It's good that you ask advice, but ultimately it has to come down to you.

To an extent maybe but I think back to job interviews where i thought I could just learn in the process. But I just wasn't learning from them, at least the key ingredient, until I actively solicited feedback. Then things suddenly improved, dramatically, but it took over 12 before I got the first job. I think it's important to gather as much information before blundering on in complex areas.

I've heard though that friendship is ultimately the most important thing in a long term relationship although the basis for finding a mate is the sexual aspect. Also, you said chemistry  not the actual sex act, assuming both are physically capable then the act could improve but if the chemistry isn't there then ideally you wouldn't get married?

I'd agree that friendship is the most important thing, but that doesn't diminish the importance of many other facets.  Best friends can result in a really shitty marriage if other things aren't working out, and sex is certainly a big one.  Furthermore, sexual chemistry isn't something learned.  Some things are ingrained into the individual which make up parts of that chemistry.  Now, two people might conceivably share a keen disinterest in sex, in which case everything is dandy, but what if only one person has no interest?  I'd call that a fucking disaster.

Some guy just said on the topic of the double standard that men can have sex with a lot of women and be considered a stud, but a woman does the same thing and is considered a slut:


"If you have a key that opens a lot of different locks, it's considered a master key.

I don't want to make a big deal about it, but I think we should try to not also make this the "guy thread".  I mean, guys outnumber girls on DTF by a pretty good margin anyway, so it follows that this thread will be mostly old dudes, but I personally like the occassional female stopping by and wouldn't want to do anything to discourage that.

Right and I wasn't suggesting that it should be the "guy thread", just an observation.  Also the above quote does seem to be the general stereotype about the issue.  Just thought it was a kinda funny way of putting it.

It's funny, and I suppose it isn't even a "guy" joke.  If anything, it speaks of the inequity of the situation in a way that makes guys look kinda bad.  I was just saying that if some people were getting a strong testosterone vibe from this thread, then we need to be more conscious about keeping things female friendly.  To me, most things, even "guy" things, tend to be more pleasant with females around.

Just to repeat my question - what ways do you get feedback from relationships without making a big deal about it?

"How are you feeling?" seems a bit general. Or should you just pay attention to body language, read between the lines. The latter seems dangerous on its own.

Just to repeat my question - what ways do you get feedback from relationships without making a big deal about it?

"How are you feeling?" seems a bit general. Or should you just pay attention to body language, read between the lines. The latter seems dangerous on its own.

AndyDT from all your questions I'm getting the feeling one of you are much more committed to the relationship than the other, but honestly if this is what is eating away at you, the only was to find out is to talk about it openly.

Trying to read too much or too little into someone's body language/expressions is not a road to go down, within any relationship communication is a huge key/stepping stone to having a healthy relationship.

PS too my fellow old fogies..sorry for turning this thread back into Dr. Phil therapy hour

Part of life.  I generally don't have a hell of a lot of common sense as far as relationships go (Mrs. Cozmo will attest to this), so I try not to offer any advice, but if the wiser fogies are able to be of assistance to Andy or anyone else, then that's cool.  I joke about the mamby-pamby thing - I'm not really being serious.

Post by: Orbert on January 03, 2011, 08:13:06 AM
Okay fogies, get your asses back to work!

One thing about getting older is that more often your job is a "regular" job.  Monday through Friday, business hours, usually in some office building or maybe a plant.  All through school, I worked a series of jobs where I'd have the night shift, day shift, work these days, get these days off, and it could vary from week to week depending on who was making the schedule.

If you're lucky, you end up in a somewhat steady arrangement where you work weekends because they're the busiest, plus some weekdays to fill up your schedule, and whatever days you don't work constitutes your weekend.  My "weekend" was Monday and Tuesday for a while, and yeah, it was kinda cool having days off when most other people were working, but eventually it was kinduva hassle because I was working Saturday and Sunday -- the real weekend -- when more and more of my friends were off.  Why?  Because they'd graduated and had real jobs, and I was still a loser student working part-time in restaurants.  I took some time off after high school to play loud music in bars and didn't finally graduate until I was 27.

Anyway, a big part of being a grown-up to me was getting a real Monday through Friday job with regular hours and not worrying about when my days off would be or if I had to plan around working the night shift or whatever.

But it's Monday morning after a helluva New Year's weekend and I really don't wanna go to work.

It's funny.  I remember about 30 years ago waking up one morning and thinking "holy fuck, I've still gotta do this for another 8 years."  Somehow, I thought that it'd all be better after I graduated. 

I spent most of Saturday working on my car, and I'm still sore as hell because of it.  I miss not being crippled after a hard days work.

I spent a few hours Saturday, still shoveling snow ( from last weeks storm ) , by Saturday night my back was killing me.

Like you Orbert, I did not want to get out of bed this morning, I have been working as a consultant since Oct , and was getting paid by the time I spent working, so if I wanted to take a morning off, or maybe cut out earlier on a Friday afternoon I could, just wouldn't get paid for it. The offered me a full time position last week, which I officially started today. When the alarm went off, this morning I was like, let me just hit snooze for a bit, than it hit me, shit I have a responsibility to be there everyday now.

And after months of being unemployed, I am so extremely grateful for having a job to go to that I kind of didn't mind having to get up today.  Sure it sorta sucked because I feel like I've got some illness or other trying to take hold, but it hasn't disabled me yet (and I'm one of those people that doesn't call out of work every time I get mild illnesses...the last time I called out was about 7 years ago when I had the flu and was so sore that I couldn't move).

Explore your likes and dislikes and establish common ground. Simply ask questions about what she enjoys doing. Then talk about the stuff you both like. Keep things light and inject humor whenever possible. If it seem uncomfortable for long stretches your probably not a good match anyhow.

"What kind of music do you listen to?"  Or simply "What music do you listen to?"  The second version allows her to just tell you what artists she likes without getting into genres or otherwise pigeonholing her tastes.  She may be fine with that, or she may not give it a lot of thought.

"What kind of movies do you like to watch?"  Or simply "What are some of your favorite movies?"  Get an idea of what she likes without forcing her to categorize.

Be prepared to share.  You could even open the topic by mentioning your own favorites (carefully avoiding anything you think would be a turn-off) and then ask her.  That way it's more like sharing, give-and-take, and not an interrogation.

"Where are you from?" "Where did you grow up?"  These are common questions and usually harmless, but carry a potential danger.  If she had a really bad childhood for some reason, you don't want to take her back to that.  The only thing she'll remember about your date is that you seemed okay, but the first thing you asked her about is her childhood.  That can really wreck the rest of the evening.  I guess as long as you don't say "Tell me about your childhood" you're probably okay, but it still seems like potentially dangerous territory.

You're looking for common ground to discuss.  If any of her favorite bands or singers or actors or movies are the same as yours: Bingo!  Talk about them.  Have you always liked he/she/them/it?  How did you discover he/she/them/it?  If you're talking music, which is her favorite album or song?  If you're talking movies, what other movies did she like?

Very important: Once you've asked the question or brought up the topic, be prepared to listen.  Unless she's totally dominating the conversation, there will be natural pauses, which is where you ask an intelligent question, or it's your turn to share.  That's how you learn about each other.

I'm always reluctant to talk about listening to metal though. It conjures an image in my head of a loner which isn't great for a date.

You could still use it as a conversation point.  If she asks you what kind of music you like (remember, it's entirely possible that she'll be the one dominating the conversation and you won't actually have a lot of "work" to do), ask her to go first.  If she likes metal, you're fine.  If she's more into other genres or even says something to the effect that she doesn't like metal, you can still say "Well, I listen to metal.  There's something about it that just grabs me.  The passion, the energy, the raw power of it all."  Or something like that.  Regardless of her feelings about metal, she will hopefully recognize that this is the type of music that speaks to you, and it's not just "I like it loud and profane, baby!"

Also, I don't associate metal with loners.  I actually think of small groups of guys wearing a lot of black and swearing a lot.  But that's just as bad a stereotype as any other.  There are loners of all types.  I was the one guy in my little clique who listened to jazz and classical, and had no one to discuss it with, so I tended to listen to jazz and classical alone a lot.  Still do, actually.

Hey old fogies.  Remember when you'd argue and you would stand your ground to the point of saying nasty things?  I see a lot of young kids doing this about MP and the new drummer.  I've learned over time that it's just not work fighting over stuff anymore.  There is realy never a resolution.  It's not like it's the end of the world.  The band will go on.  Same applies to arguements with the wife.  I don't anymore.  Too much waste of time.

My problem is I've always tried to get whoever I was with at the time to see that "it's not worth it" line of reasoning also: "In the bigger scheme of things and your life in general, this is really not worth getting so bent out of shape over."

Yeah, that doesn't work.

I do like a good argument, but mostly because if someone disagrees with me, I honestly would like to hear why they think their view is the correct one.  I want them to convince me.  I consider myself a better person if I can understand someone else's point of view, even if I don't agree with it myself.

Incredibly, my understanding of arguments comes from the Monty Python sketch commonly known as "Argument Clinic."  (I'm sure it's on YouTube, find it yourself.)  After Palin and Cleese go back and forth a few times with "No it isn't" "Yes it is" "No it isn't!" "Yes it is!" it's quite clear that they are not, in fact, arguing.  They are simply disagreeing, and neither of them is actually trying to convince the other of anything.  Neither is presenting any evidence, neither is trying to point out flaws in the other's position, nothing.  Palin correctly points out that it's not an argument.

Ever listen to little kids (and some adults) "argue"?  It sounds exactly like that.

"My dad can beat up your dad"
"Nuh-uh, my dad can beat up your dad"
"Nuh-uh, my dad can beat up your dad!"
"Nuh-uh, MY dad can beat up YOUR dad!"

A simple solution would be if one of them actually stated why he thought his dad could beat up the other one's dad.

"My dad is the heavyweight champion of the state, three years running.  He put four people in the hospital last year.  Your dad ran away screaming from a squirrel, we all saw it."
"Oh shit."

So now I look for actual logic and conclusions when I argue.

"Seriously, explain why you think blueberry is better than strawberry."
"It just is."
"That's it?  It just is?"
"Yeah.  It just is."
"Not because it tastes better, or is higher in vital nutrients, or cures AIDS?"
"No, it's just better."
"You're a moron and not worth my time."

Orbert, you're referring to the subtle difference between 'arguing' and 'debating'.

The former brings in elements of emotion and anger.   "Debating" is a better way to try and bring out each side's points.

True!

Andy, so was it a "good" first date?  And by that I mean that a second date is likely.  If she did most of the talking, that's (mostly) good, for a couple of reasons.  It may be that she just needs someone to talk to.  If she thinks you're a good listener, that can be good and you'll be spending more time together.  It could also indicate that she's kinda lonely, and again that can be good.

The potential bad of course is that at some point you'll lose it and go "Damn it, woman! Can't you shut your yap for just five seconds and let me finish my potato?!"  Try not to do that.  Girls don't like it when you do that.

Maybe yes. I enjoyed it definitely. She had a lot to say and wasn't needy at all which was great, and I was interested. I prefer listening in general.

Is there an etiquette to do that properly?

Also, there's definitely seems an art to keeping a conversation going with timing e.g. so you don't answer, stuff your mouth then it goes quiet.
Title: Re: The DTF Old As Mold Club ! Ages 30 and over
Post by: Orbert on January 14, 2011, 08:37:58 AM
There's something of an art to it, yes, but I think it's more a matter of being comfortable with the rhythm and pace of the conversation.  Someone says something, the other replies, then you both take a mouthful while you think about what to say next.  There's nothing wrong with that.  If things are quiet for too long, I guess that can qualify as an "awkward pause," but I don't think it has to.  If you're really listening to her, you should be able to come up with things to say, even short little things, that will indicate that you're still listening and interested.

"Wow, that sounds pretty cool!"
"Really?  I don't think I've ever heard of..."
"Yeah, I knew this one guy who..."

But I can pretty much talk for hours about anything.  I know that doesn't come naturally to a lot of people (thank God) but I rarely have found any topic to be so boring, so completely void of anything that I care about or understand, that I couldn't at least comment on it intelligently. It does require some quick thinking sometimes.

There's no rule about how much conversation must take place.  Sure, part of the whole point is to talk, but you're also eating and you both know that, so there will be pauses.  Look at her while you're chewing.  Find something to comment on.  Her hair, her clothes, her jewelry.  When you've exhausted the topics you had ready to go, tell her you like her earrings or her dress or something.  Maybe something will remind you of someone else who had something similar.  Hopefully she'll thank you, and if you're lucky, she'll mention where she got it or who gave it to her, and there you go, the conversation is off in another direction.

For all you old fogies.  It is a sad day today. Don Kirshner passed away today at the age of 76.  Some links say 77 some say 76.

Damn.  Long before I was old enough to go to concerts, I was old enough to stay up late on Friday night and check out "Don Kirshner's Rock Concert."  Awesome stuff, easily one of my earliest and best exposures to live rock and roll in the 70's.

Thanks, Don.  You were the man.

I was going to start a thread about Don Kirshner, but it's fitting that it's in this thread. I loved watching Don Kirshner's Rock Concert. Way before MTV... I used to watch it when it came on after Saturday Night Live 1980-1982. Learned about so many bands, it was must see. Thin Lizzy, Def Leppard, Rush..

Andy, don't take this the wrong way, but damn! trust your own instincts! Your your own person with your own unique personality. You don't need to ask for advice for your every move.
What do you do now?
You call her if you had a good time. You ask her how she's doing.You tell her you had a good time, and ask her if she did as well. You tell  you want to take out again!
You don't need us to tell you this stuff. Be yourself and act natural as if your talking to an old friend. If a girl feels your comfortable and confident in who you are, you can't loose. Unless she doesn't like who that person is, and in that case you can't win anyway.

What's comfortable and confident though? I can have confidence most of the time and be relaxed but I'm not going to pretend I'm something I'm not i.e. experienced with relationships. I need some way of communicating that without coming across as unconfident and the only way I can think of is just being straight and truthful -or in the vernacular "putting my balls on the table." Blindly going along saying "let's go out, let's go out" seems to give the wrong impression. Admittedly I could have said this earlier but there it is.

Post by: Orbert on February 08, 2011, 08:35:28 AM
Comfortable and confident generally comes from experience.  You're comfortable and confident because you've done it before, you know how it works, and you're ready for most contingencies.  It's possible to be comfortable and confident when you've never done something before, but that's often borne of naiveté, and often you find out that you only thought you had it all figured out.

But you are allowed to be comfortable with yourself and confident in your own abilities, even if you're applying them to a new situation.

What about asking what the lady wants to do? What I want to do is to let her feel good, have a good time. To me, that means letting her do what she wants to do provided it doesn't cross my values etc.

That's a great idea actually.  Call her (standard "not too soon don't wanna seem too anxious, but don't wait too long don't want her to lose interest" warning) and chat a bit.  Talk about how much you enjoyed your last date.  Ask her if she'd like to do it again, and what she might want to do.  You've shown initiative, but also flexibility and willingness to let her make some decisions as well.

I was in the minority for most of my late teens and 20's about being completely indifferent about the bj. Good or bad, I've had both but they didn't really get me to the desired results.....ever.
But.
In my 30's I've noticed the old boy needs a bit more coaxing to get him up to speed. And the the bj is now a munch enjoyed and welcomed part of the over all act.

I've been going on dates, seen a couple of people two or more times but nothing lasting a long time. I'm trying to stay in the game, finding and maintaining new dating contacts, but find this means I'm trying to keep open contacts with 2 or more women at the same time. I draw the line at seeing more than one person at the same time so I lose touch with some along the way. Am I doing this right?

Do it "right" depends on the what you're comfortable with.  Being a practical guy, I don't see a huge problem with seeing more than one person casually, or even semi-seriously, as long as it's understood by all parties that you're just seeing each other and there's nothing exclusive.  The "practical" aspect comes in because I like to maximize my chances.  If one girl ends up not working out, there's always the other(s).

But that also means juggling schedules and keeping track of multiple sets of interests and priorities and all that.  You definitely do not want to find yourself asking your date how something turned out, you know, that thing you talked about last time, only to realize that it was a different girl and you got them mixed up for a minute.  So I can see why, as a rule, some guys prefer to keep things one-on-one.

The important thing is that you're back in the game and sharpening your skills.  Yes, that makes it sound rather impersonal or something, but as I said, I'm a practical guy, and this is something which often requires some thought and review along the way.  It sounds to me like you're doing fine.

Thanks. Yes I don't want to shut somebody out only to find that the person I'm seeing was never serious but that's the risk.

If you have had multiple dates, your doing something right.
I was usually a one(serious) relationship at a time guy. If you see too many women at the same time, it fucks with your mind a bit too much, imo.

Yeah, that might not have been the best move.  Some jobs have times when you literally have nothing to do, yet your job requires that you man your station just in case something comes up, but most jobs have you busting ass for eight hours straight, especially nowadays as employers squeeze every dime out of you that they can.  You don't want to assume someone can just chat while at work.

For a long time, I was against texting in principle, just because it's faster (for me) and more personal to just call the person and talk.  But I've since come to realize that texting has its advantages.  You don't have to reply immediately, but the information gets passed along.  My wife will shoot me a text at work once in a while with information that I'll need later, but isn't enough to interrupt me if I might be in a meeting or something.  And I can confirm later that I received it.

I'm wondering if I could talk more on dates. What do you say?

- I don't want to quiz here about things she doesn't want to speak about ie. if I ask a couple of questions and she's not forthcoming then I take it as a sign that she's not interested in talking about that more.

- observational things. These are good whether they're a hook to something shared or something you know abuot her or just interest

- comments and questions - keeping an existing topic going

- disclosures - not generally good unless part of follow-up comments as they can make you seem self-absorbed

Am I missing something else?

Yes, the trivial stuff.  The small details that tell her something about you, which are kinda pointless later but possibly important now.

"I read this article the other day about <something>.  I guess they've come up with some new methods of <something> that are more efficient and less expensive now.  I thought that was pretty cool."

It could be a magazine or online article, something you saw on the news, or even something you just heard about.  Something you found interesting.  Bring it up.  If it's something she also heard about, or something she finds interesting, then you have something to talk about.  If she's interested but hadn't heard, you have an opportunity to demonstrate your mad skills by telling her about it.  At the very least, she has found out something new about you, your interests, and how you feel about a certain topic.

Where do you work, what do you do.
THEN

Even if you know the answers already about company x, and business y.....ask her about it anyhow....AND BE INTERESTED....AND LISTEN.......feed off that.....lead it to more questions....life experience stories.

Don't one up her stories..or try not to either.

Yes thanks that's great advice. I find that some people need to warm up a bit before they'll get into a flow but then it leads onto all this great stuff you mention. So you've got to watch you're not too sensitive to them not apparently being interested if you see what I mean?

Find out what they offer through your temp agency anyway.  Anything paid for by the company is better than nothing.  Even if they don't pay for part of your premiums, you almost certainly will qualify for a better rate through them than on your own, because they're getting a group rate.  You're right, though; it's probably not great, but it'll be better than nothing.  If you're young and healthy, you probably want to opt for a higher deductible in exchange for lower premiums.  Catastrophic situations will max out your deductible anyway and that's all you'll pay.

Oh my gosh the last two sentences are like a foreign language haha. Higher deductible means I pay lower per month correct? Yet, also means that I have to pay more anytime I need to see a doctor right?

Yeah the higher deductibles will lower your monthly premium.  I'm not sure what the higher deductible will do to your copay (what you pay the doctor at the time of your visit).

Insurance 101

Insurance companies collect payments from customers in advance; these payments are known as premiums.  When customers get injured or sick, or for any other reason need to see a medical professional or hospital, the insurance company pays for part or even all of the bill, depending on the arrangement they have with the customer.  The process of getting the insurance company to pay the medical professional or hospital is called a claim.  Sometimes the professional or hospital will file the claim on behalf of the customer; sometimes the customer files the claim.

Obviously for the insurance company to make money, the amount they collect in premiums has to be more than what they pay in claims.  There are two main ways that insurance policies can be set up in order to reduce how much the insurance company pays: (1) there is a deductible amount, or (2) there is a co-pay amount.  These are similar but not exactly the same, and sometimes both can apply to the same claim.

A co-pay amount is a fixed amount that the patient pays each time.  For example, if your co-pay is $25, then every time you go to the doctor, be it for a regular checkup, because you're sick, whatever, you pay $25 and the insurance company pays the rest.  In exchange, the premiums you pay monthly are lower.  Lower, that is, compared to what you'd pay if you want the insurance to pay the entire bill.

A deductible amount is a fixed amount, much higher than a co-pay, that is your total responsibility to pay over a certain period of time (usually one year, but sometimes lifetime).  For major things like a stay in the hospital, the insurance company will cover 80% of the bill, up to a certain amount.  That sounds pretty good until your realize that even a few days in the hospital costs thousands of dollars. A serious injury or operation can cost tens or hundreds of thousands, so you're still on the hook for thousands, up to your deductible amount.  If your total deductible is $10,000, then that's all you pay, period.  No matter how high the bills go, the insurance company picks up the rest of the bill.  This is to prevent people from getting completely wiped out financially by a single catastrophic illness.  Yeah, $10,000 is still a lot of money, but you or your parents or hopefully somebody will be able to raise or borrow that much.  A total hospital bill for half a million dollars would destroy a lot of people.

So... if your employer offers more than one insurance plan, then there's going to be a plan where you pay higher premiums but have a lower (or non-existant) co-pay.  There will be a plan where the premiums are lower, but in return you pay more out-of-pocket each time you see the doctor.  There can be any number of plans in between.  There can also be plans with a higher deductible in exchange for lower premiums (think about it; it makes sense) and vice versa.

The company I work for offers I think seven different plans underwritten by three different insurance companies.  I pick the one that makes the most sense for my family and our situation.  You need to do the same thing.

If they only offer one plan, there's no deciding.  It will almost certainly be a better deal than you can find through an independent agent.  This is because the company is getting a group rate from the insurer, and possibly subsidizing it as well.  Otherwise you have to weigh the difference in premiums you pay each month/year/whatever against how often you visit the doctor and what you'll pay out-of-pocket each time, and how well you want to be protected against catastrophic illness.  Also, if you're still a full-time student and/or under a certain age, you may still be covered by your parent's insurance, so you should check with them.  You may not need to get your own insurance at all.  My son is 18, but as long as he's a full-time student, he's covered on my policy until he's 25.

Wow thank you very much! Care to explain auto insurance too? HAHAHA

Post by: Orbert on March 28, 2011, 11:13:17 AM
It's actually very similar.  And I realize now that I titled my little essay "Insurance 101" when it only focused on Health Insurance.

But Auto Insurance is similar in that they'll offer lower premiums in exchange for a higher deductible.  The difference is that the deductible is more important than the co-pay, and there may not even be a co-pay.  With Auto Insurance, your primary concern is getting your car fixed (and possibly the other person's car if the accident was your fault and you live in a state where that means you have to pay), which is always in the thousands of dollars.  There isn't an analagous situation with co-pays and doctor visits because regular check-ups are oil changes and tune-ups and new tires and stuff.  You don't pay for those via insurance unless you're an idiot; you pay for those out of pocket.

The plans I've seen usually have Zero deductible, $250, or $500.  I'm sure you could go higher.  Same concept, though.  The total repairs might be $5000, but you only pay the deductible amount.  Therefore you look at how much the difference will be for premiums compared to how much you'll have to pay out-of-pocket should you get into an accident.

Title: Re: The DTF Old As Mold Club 30&Over/A.K.A. Andy's Love Advice Forum
Post by: Orbert on March 28, 2011, 09:43:41 PM
That's okay.  Old people get off on imparting their knowledge to younger folks.  It makes them feel important or smart or something.

Liability simply means "Whose fault was it?"/"Who must pay?"  Or nowadays, "Whose insurance company must pay?"  The simplest case is an accident between two cars, and a police officer gives a ticket to one or the other party.  Someone ran a red light, or turned without signalling, or something.  If somebody gets a ticket, then it's clearly that person's fault, which means that they have to pay to fix both cars.  Or nowadays, their insurance company has to pay.

Some states are "no-fault" states, which means that unless there are extenuating circumstances, it doesn't matter whose fault it is; you pay for your car and the other person pays for theirs.  In a no-fault state, you pretty much have to have insurance, because you can be the safest driver in the world and if someone hits you, you still have to pay.  Also, if you finance a car (you're making payments on it), it must be insured.  No bank is going to lend you money for a car that might get totalled.  If your car gets toasted before you've finished paying for it, it severely jeopardizes their chances of getting their money, and they want their money, so they don't finance a car that's not insured.

If it's a single-car accident (you hit some ice and crash into a tree or something), then it's pretty obvious that you're paying for it.

I've been seeing this woman for around 5-6 weeks. Had some good dates, got on quite well. Got hard a couple of times. Then on Saturday we talk about past experience and it turns out she's still speaking to her ex who is about to emigrate and has been for months. Then she calls it off tonight saying she's not ready (which is exactly what the last woman I was with said - doesn't want a relationship yet). Am I missing some message here or should I just move on?

If you try to force anything on her, you will only drive her further away.  Give it time, the thing with her ex may pass and she might come calling on you again.  And keep an open mind to other options, one of the best parts I have gotten out of dating is some solid friends.  If you are bugged about the mood switch, ask her about it.  If she doesn't want to talk, it might not be worth it.

This is just my opinion and interpretation of events, but I think it's bad news, Andy.  If you've been dating for five or six weeks and suddenly her ex is in the picture in any way, shape or form, and just as suddenly, she's "not ready for a relationship" then she's trying to let you down easily.  She does not want a relationship with you.  After a month and a half, she feels that she knows you well enough to make this decision, but rather than risk hurting your feelings, she's blaming it on herself not being ready.  You don't date someone for a month and a half and then figure out that you're not ready for a relationship.  You just don't like the one you're in or currently developing.

By age alone, you qualify.  Welcome.  The cut line is 30 and over, but most of the regulars(myself, king, Orbert, wikml, etc) are in their forties.  I think there are seven of us really old fogies.  Then there is andy, who comes to us for our sage advice on issues of the heart.

Right on, I'll be sure to pop in here from time to time then!  :tup  It seems like my age group is the least represented, or at least the least vocal group on this forum.  From what I see it's mostly late teens/early-mid twenties high school and college kids, then you have your few fortysomethings running around making references to things from the '70s that go over my head!  For example: I've never seen Logan's Run  ???

We were getting affectionate that night, she was doing the leading, and she starts talking about how her ex is still in the picture.

Okay then that's weird.  My revised interpretation is that he was always around, somewhere, but she thought she'd moved on and was ready to start something up with you.  But something has happened recently and now she needs a break to sort things out.  Stuff she thought she had sorted out.  Maybe he called her, they talked, she realized that she still has some feelings for him, I don't know.

But if she was doing the leading, and then decided to tell you that she's not ready, you're definitely getting mixed signals.  No heterosexual male can correctly interpret mixed signals from a female.  We've been working on it for 2 million years, so I don't think it's gonna happen in our lifetime.

That's about 2 levels beyond a red flag.  The girl seems to have issues, and you'd be well advised to let her deal with them on her own.  Don't be the guy to discover she's a basket case.

Hey guys, so I'm turning 31 this year, I'm married and have a son who's almost 2.  Do I qualify for this club?  I don't need love advice or anything, just wanted to say "what up."  Sometimes I feel a little left out from the other age groups on here because I'm not in high school or college, and I have no idea what Pokemon is all about other than natural pop culture osmosis.

Im 36, and started playing Pokemon last year.
It's an addictive little cock.
Start now.
or
When your son gets older maybe. Mine is 8 and we're hip deap in pokemon.

My son was 7 when we got him Pokémon Blue, so I was 37 at the time, and we both got kinda hooked on it.  I was able to shake it off because I was still addicted to Diablo II at the time.

In retrospect, I should've gone with Pokémon.  It would've been something to do together.

Ya I think I just missed the Pokemon generation, by the time it started getting big I was just out of high school and didn't care about anything that wasn't partying.  It hit home when I saw the Pokemon thread here and realized that all these twentysomethings were probably young kids when it first came out and it's stuck with them, so it must be something cool.  The Ocarina of Time nostalgia I totally get, I guess I just barely missed the boat on Pokemon.  It sounds cool though, I'm sure once my kid reaches DS ownership age I'll get into it because from what I've seen they look like SNES era rpgs like FFIV/FFVI which I'm ALL ABOUT!  :lol

We played the card game for quite a while after I'd stopped playing the GameBoy games.  Heck, I think it was only in the last two or three years that we stopped buying new decks with special cards and all that.  Wizards really hit a gold mine with that stuff.  You can keep changing the cards, coming up with new ones, forever, and people will buy them because you "gotta catch 'em all!"

I was watching a show today with an old Hungarian woman cooking authentic foods from Hungary. She reminded me of my grandmother. Then my mind started to drift away from what I was watching and I started thinking about how much I miss her. She has been gone 20 years now. Then I thought of my dad who passed away 22 years ago and I just starting getting sad. I guess that's one of the things that bothers me most about aging. I have lost so many loved ones and instead of time healing all wounds, I think it makes it worse. All the things my dad missed from knowing my wife, to knowing my beautiful daughter. My mom is now 76 and not in the best health. I started feeling guilty that I don't call her or make enough time for her like I should.
Just wanted to talk cause I was home sick today and I just started to bum out as my mind brought me to various places during the day.
Thanks for listening.

Sorry, King. I'm just having one of those days. It happens to me once in awhile. I a night about a year ago where I started crying uncontrollably in the middle of the night after having a dream about my father. My wife had all she could do to calm me down. I kind of felt foolish because I was over the top in my emotional breakdown.
She lost her mom at age 53 in 1999 of cancer.

I remember always having problems with the Intellivision controller. The round disc kept wearing out. They sold joystick like things to stick on to it.

I liked the hockey and the tank battle. Also the downhil skiing. I've never really been into video games though. It was interesting for about a year in the 7th grade. My brother, though, used to stay up all night playing the Dungeons And Dragons Intellivision game. Talk about primitive..

Yar's Revenge.  FTW.

Intellivision was cool for the Football, but I rarely got to play it since only the well-to-do kids got one. 

But then in my neck of the woods we had a chain of free-standing arcades (all of the closed up Pizza Huts and Dairy Queens).  Barstools, cigarette burns on the console,  drinking and smoking in the parking lot.  Great times.  It occurred to me the other day that kids today have no concept of the arcade.  A place where you go to play video games that cost a quarter (dollar now, I'm sure) wouldn't make sense.  Real shame.  The dark, loud, epilepsy inducing arcades were one of the great things of our era. 

Edit:  Journey: Escape had the 6x9s built into the cabinet so that Separate Ways would blast half way across the mall.  Great stuff.

"Apparently."

i before e except after c and when sounding like a as in neighbor and weigh, and on weekends and holidays and all throughout May, and you'll always be wrong no matter what you say!"
That's a hard rule. That's a— that's a rough rule.
Plurals were hard, too.
“Brian, how do you make a word a plural?”
“You put a ‘s’…put a ‘s’ at the end of it.”
“When?”
“On weekends and holidays!!!”
“No, Brian. Let me show you.” So she asked this kid who knew everything,Irwin. “Irwin, what’s the plural for ox?”
“Oxen. The farmer used his oxen.”
“Brian?”
(chuckling) “What?”
“Brian, what’s the plural for box?”
“Boxen. I bought 2 boxen of doughnuts.”
"No, Brian, no. Let's try another one. Irwin, what's the plural for goose?"
"Geese. I saw a flock of geese."
"Brian!"
(half-crying) "Wha-at?"
"Brian, what's the plural for moose?"
"MOOSEN!! I saw a flock of moosen! There were many of 'em. Many much moosen. Out in the woods—in the woodes—in the woodsen. The meese want the food. The food is to eatenesen. The meese want the food in the woodyesen! In the, food in the woodenesen!"
"Brian! Brian. You're an imbecile."
"Imbecile-n."

I often wonder when is the right time to ask out a woman if you like her. If it's somebody you might not see again, or may not see for weeks/months but have only spoken to a couple of times, you worry about her reacting like "oh God that's way to quick". But what can you do?

I kinda liked it when it first showed up and was a sincere way of appreciating a story but in a rather informal way.  Usually a story that's nothing earth-shattering but somewhat interesting anyway.

Now it's used far more often as a sarcastic way to tell someone that you did not find the story interesting in the least.  Fuck that.  I just shared something with you, and if you didn't like it, I obviously don't care because I told you anyway.

And at 49 she remains sizzling. I think she's headed for that rarified territory that, off the top of my head, I can only surely say includes Jane Seymour, Morgan Fairchild, Suzanne Somers, and possibly Susan Lucci(although a fair amount of makeup is probably used to "restore" all the other "antiques" I assume it'd be most necessary for Lucci as being passed over for daytime Emmy's has been proven to age humans 7.4 times quicker than anything else.) The rarified territory I'm referring to is women at, or approaching, 60 that remain considered attractive by most dudes who fall into either the 18-35 or 18-49 demographic.

Rent at the airport if you're flying, you still have to find a way to get to the other place.  The easiest way to save money is not buy into their insurance.  If you already have auto insurance call them to see what kind of coverage you have for rental.  Basically, don't take any gimmick they offer you, like prepaying to a tank of gas and certain insurances.  Avoid free upgrades unless you know the gas mileages won't kill you, too.  Free upgrade to SUV is a bad thing.

Since we are visiting family, I may have someone pick us up at the airport and drive us to a different location to pick up the rental car. It looks like that will seriously drop the price, but its still relatively high. Most likely due to pick up and drop off in two separate states?

I'm very certain that my current insurance will cover most things that might occur with the rental car, so I definitely wont be buying that. Also do not want an SUV, so not a problem there either!

Post by: El Barto on July 14, 2011, 10:23:43 AM
If there happens to be more than one airport in the vicinity (unlikely in Ft Wayne, I suppose), you can frequently get better deals by comparing the two.

Be sure to manage your pickup/drop-off times.  You'll get a better deal with the weekly rate, but an extra 3 hours on a Monday can absolutely kill you.  I've seen $250 for a week, plus an extra $80 for the eighth day because of the four hours. 

Spend a fair amount of time comparing rates for all of the possible rental agencies at different times of the day and even different days of the week.  There websites will make this easy.  Don't just put your first choice into Expedia and see what happens.

Most importantly,  scour the web for discount codes.  Plenty of people will post their corporate codes and plenty of the agencies offer web only discounts.  Rental Car Momma was always a good source of discounts.  I've gotten really good corporate discounts, despite not even knowing anything about the business I claimed to be with, but that's slightly risky.  Still, RCM will generally provide all kinds of valid promos,  and there are a ton of other sites that do the same thing.

Your insurance will cover most events, but also check with your credit card companies.  A good Citibank card will also provide some valuable coverage, for example. 

Just saw that you're doing a one way rental.  Those can really sting.  When you're searching every site, look for the itemized price breakdown and see what each one of them charges for the destination fee.  One might charge $400 while another charges nothing.  Just depends on where they have outlets.

Also, neighborhood shops aren't always the best deal.  A lot of the time they're actually more expensive, and you also run the risk of them not having the car you reserve.  They tend to be quite flaky about their inventory.

Research is the key.  Anytime I travel,  I spend weeks exploring flights, cars and hotels.  Checking daily for a week or two will give you a great idea of what the trends are and how their pricing works. 

Another important thing is having a little flexibility in your plans.  It's amazing how things might change by flying out one day earlier or later, same with the return.  I'll often base my plans on cheapest travel days and then fill them in accordingly.

Ask about the gas mileages if they offer a free upgrade or a choice of cars, though.  They often give you a choice of some kind, just remember that's a place you can shave some money off by the right choice.

One other thing, some places, like Avis, rent their cars in 24 hour blocks.  A rental for 25 hours is the same as one for 48 hours, so if you're going just an hour or two over a complete day find a way to pick up the car a little later or return it a little earlier.  Dropping it off early and catching lunch or dinner with a friend near the airport has worked well for me in the past to save that money.

Most importantly,  scour the web for discount codes.  Plenty of people will post their corporate codes and plenty of the agencies offer web only discounts.  Rental Car Momma was always a good source of discounts.  I've gotten really good corporate discounts, despite not even knowing anything about the business I claimed to be with, but that's slightly risky.  Still, RCM will generally provide all kinds of valid promos,  and there are a ton of other sites that do the same thing.
This, too.  You might even have discounts without knowing it.  By simply having a frequent flyer account with Midwest, when they existed, I got discounts anywhere I rented, even places they didn't fly.

Wow some really good info here! Thanks

I researched our flights for several weeks, when the prices dropped $150 I bought them. So the times are just about locked in (although Delta just sent anflight change yesterday  ::)).

I have looked at RCM and some how when I put a code in, it became more expensive. No idea how that works!

I'm trying to keep it 7 days and under, but it is technically an 8 day trip. Looking at budget because they seem to be the cheapest right now. If its 8 days - $400. If I do the next day pick up for 7 day rental - $332. Taxes and fees for 8 days $100, 7 days is $80.

I looked over my bank website and didn't see any thing that might list rental car discounts or coverage details.

Be sure to try different combination of codes/agencies.  Don't know what they're sticking you with for the destination fee, but honestly it doesn't sound like you're getting too bad a deal.  $500 for an 8 day rental with out of state dropoff seems reasonable.  I'd still be looking to knock a couple hundred off of that, but if it weren't possible it wouldn't devastate me.

Yeah, it definitely could be worse. I had to rent cars while I was under 25 and that $27/day additional fee for being under the age was ridiculous! At least now I don't have to worry about that part. I need to ask my work if we get any corporate discounts, not sure how that works if I'm a contractor though.

(the thought of lonestar behind a grill with piss and shit falling out of his nostrils is hilarious.  except for whomever is about to eat his food.)

I wonder how many of the oldies have spare tires/beer bellies compared to us lean and hip younger cats?

It is.  It pains me to go into a fast food joint, because I inevitable see a fat person or multiple fat people disgustingly shoving a boigah (at least double-pattied and covered in mayo) haphazardly into their mouth.

Do they not give a fuck about how disgusting they look when doing that, or how many calories they're consuming from that boigah (+ car fuel tank's worth of non-diet soda and bucket o fries)

Day On The Green #1, Aug 31, 1985, Oakland Coliseum, Ca.

Our version was the Texxas Jam (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texxas_Jam). 

1985 (August 24): Cotton Bowl in Dallas

    * Deep Purple (Perfect Strangers tour)
    * Scorpions
    * Night Ranger
    * Ted Nugent
    * Bon Jovi
    * Grim Reaper
    * Victory

One regular occurrence was the annual trash fight between the floor and the balcony.  Throughout the entire day,  people were throwing the paper cups, crumpled up with ice in them, back and forth  (stung like hell after a good sunburn).  Between sets, the sky would be gray because of all the cups in the air.  The other regular occurrence was the guys with a fire hose in front of the barricade hosing everybody down (August in Texas).   The end result of those two factors was that by the end of the day you were walking in a knee-high,  paper-mache mulch.

Truth be told,  the performances were rarely great.  You wanted to die because of the heat.  You were covered in nasty wax-paper mulch.  You were always on the lookout for those balcony assholes trying to bean you with trash.  Still,  wouldn't trade the experiences for the world.

Ah...Metallica was my first concert.  Borrowed the rent's car and drove myself, my best friend, and two other friends to Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh.  I remember having fun, it being my first exposure to Mary Jane, contact high, and the guy on fire running across the stage.  The big debate on the way home was whether it was staged or not.  I remember myself and another guy saying they wouldn't mess around with that after James's accident, but then again no one on stage seemed to be bothered by a man on fire (I now know it is part of the show).  For a first concert, I really couldn't have asked for more.

Hey my first concert was also Metallica!  It looks like I'm in DTVT's age group, so while I also missed out on seeing the Cliff era live I did get to catch them before James became a greaser or whatever.  I saw them summer of '94, my 14th birthday.  It was the Live Shit tour at the now gone Cal State Dominguez Hills Velodrome outside of L.A.  Fight opened and were awesome, so did Candlebox who sucked, and Suicidal Tendencies who were super awesome.  Alice in Chains was supposed to open too but I imagine Layne was starting to really get messed up from dope around that time so they were "sick."  It was before they cut their hair but the early signs of something fishy going on were there.  Me and my buddies were like "WTF?" because James had some kind of Billy Ray Cyrus major mullet going on and Kirk had like dreads or braids or something and shorts on.  Shit definitely wasn't right.  But they were awesome, opened with Breadfan and closed with So What if I recall correctly.  Rumor was that they were going to play a new song but I think it just ended up being God that Fails or something rare like that off of the Black album.

I think I mentioned it already in this thread, but mine was Metallica in July '94 at the Velodrome at Cal State Dominguez Hills in L.A., which is where the Home Depot Center now stands.  Lineup was:

Fight (I wasn't really familiar with Priest at the time beyond Breakin the Law.  I thought Halford looked like Sloth from The Goonies with sunglasses on)
Candlebox
Suicidal Tendencies
Metallica

It was for my 14th birthday, and even though James had a Billy Ray Cyrus mullet and Kirk had like braids or dreadlocks with shorts on, it was fuckin awesome.  :metal

Styx, The Grand Illusion, 1977.  Hell of a show.  Styx were just on the verge of hitting it big, and actually hit it with this tour, but I got to see them in a small venue with great seats.

Only true festival I recall was seeing Spinal Tap at Molson Park in Barrie - Canada Day, hhmmmm...  1991 maybe '92.  Spinal Tap played 3 cities across Canada that day ... St. John's Newfoundland, then Barrie, then Vancouver.  Bunch of good Canadian bands .. 54-40, the Hip, Sass Jordan, Slik Toxic.  Ahh... good times.

I saw the non-Crue version of that down here.  Good show.  Actually saw Y&T countless times; always a good act.  And I recall thinking that Accept sounded like they were actually using all of those Marshall cabs--loud as hell.

So that was the Shout at the Devil tour?  Saw them open for Ozzy on that (front row), but not the headliner.  Saw them with Y&T at least once, and assumed it was the same tour.

Speaking of which, I discovered that Buddy Rich was doing that sort of thing long before Tommy Lee popularized it.

Funny thing.  The first 3 or so concerts I went to all had opening bands (1st of 3) no-show.  Waysted was scheduled but didn't make it for the Dallas Ozzy show.


TAC, that was the infamous tour where Ozzy pissed on the Alamo wasn't it?
I was going to say that was the next tour, but it was actually the one prior.  The Alamo incident was '82.  Ozzy/Crue was 2/16/04 (for some reason, one of only two concert dates I remember  ???).

I'm 31 and I certainly don't consider myself a fogey.  I don't consider myself a kid though either.  I just consider myself awesome.  Seems like ages 30-50 is where it's at.  Anyone under 30 seems like a whiny little bitch kid who thinks they know everything but really they don't know shit, and anyone over 50 seems like a whiny old person who used to know shit but forgot it all and now just bitch about nonsense.  Sorry to any I offended with this post.  ;D

Because they are probably *FINALLY!* away from their parents who have kept them on their leash their whole life and now can voice their opinions and whatnot, figuring out how the world works and either hating it or manipulating it.

Seems like ages 30-50 is where it's at.  Anyone under 30 seems like a whiny little bitch kid who thinks they know everything but really they don't know shit, and anyone over 50 seems like a whiny old person who used to know shit but forgot it all and now just bitch about nonsense.

I dropped out of college twice in the 80's and joined a band.  We did a lot of stuff and saw a lot of stuff that most people do not get to see and do, but I never once thought it was a waste of time.  We were living the dream.  It was only when the band self-destructed that I got my shit together and went back to school.  By my 30's, I was something like a respectable guy.

I need advice, just not love.

My boyfriend asked me to move into his house. I said yes, but when I told my parents, they asked us to sit down and talk to them.

Basically my parents want us to get married, but we want to live together first. They are okay with this, but have told us that if I move and it doesn't work out, I can't move home. This is it.

It all comes down to how much faith I have in my relationship. I am crazy about him and he feels the same about me. I know I want to move. I guess I just figured out my answer haha.

As long as you feel you can make it on your own if your relationship goes south you should do what you want to do. Its a big step and I wish you well. I hope its everything you want it to be. The one thing that will change is the fact you will know every nuance of the person you move in with over time, good and bad. Don't sweat little things and you will have more peace. Its an exciting time C. All the best to ya!

They're bluffing.  They want you to think that it's all or nothing, which is the right move for all parties involved.  You should be thinking that.  In the end, however, if you wound up out on your ass they'd happily let you back.

Post by: Orbert on March 28, 2012, 11:39:08 AM
But they (the parents) also have a point.  Sure, parents love their kids, but there's no question that one goal is to finally get them out on their own.  This is a huge milestone, possibly the biggest of all.  Forget what age you can drive a car, or vote, or drink; when you move out of the house, you are an adult, an independent being.  You are taking care of yourself at that point.  Parents aren't just looking forward to the reduced financial obligations and having a bit more free time and space around the house, it signifies that they've finally done it, they've successfully launched their offspring.  To reach and pass that milestone, only to get a phonecall later saying "I need to move back home, it didn't work out" would completely suck.

So yeah, maybe they're bluffing, but what they're really doing is trying to get you to understand that this is not something to be taken lightly.  This is not just another thing you can try out, and if it doesn't work, hey no biggie.  It is a huge step forward, and you do not want to take such a step and then step back.  It completely diminishes the accomplishment, can and should be regarded as a failure, and makes it easier to do next time.  I moved out when I was 18.  When that particularly housing arrangement fell apart, I had no intention of moving back home; I found some other roommates and we found another place.  Then later another.  There were days I woke up hungry and went to bed hungry, even though I still had keys to a house with a well-stocked pantry and refrigerator just across town.  I was out, and I was doing it myself.

Life is about moving forward.  Yeah, there are setbacks, and I'm sure your parents will help you in some way if things get bad, but make sure you have it clear in your head how this is going to play out, and what you'll do if things don't work out the way you think.

Post by: Hyperplex on March 29, 2012, 07:23:15 AM
It isn't anywhere near the same as breaking a cycle of abuse, but my father was/is a very odd individual, somewhat sociopathic in a way and neurotic on multiple levels. To my family, he was a wonderful provider and never hurt us physically, but psychologically he was and still is a source of strife, turmoil and verbal abuse. Speaking from my own experience, he wasn't a father figure to me unless it was convenient to himself. He would only keep me company and do things with me if it was something he wanted to do or had to do. For example, he wouldn't take me out anywhere unless it was the auto part store so he could buy something for his car. He never showed enthusiasm for things I did or received and was the first one to instill insecurity or embarrassment in me as a child. I also learned how NOT to treat my wife from witnessing how he treated my mother. It was an even worse experience for my older sister.

This type of realization didn't come to me until I became a father. I remember the first time I had to work late after Eric was born; he was still awake when I got home, and I walked into his room and he looked up at me and his entire body relaxed and he smiled, reaching up for me to hold him. At that moment, I realized he felt something I NEVER had; comfort and serenity at Dad's presence. My entire life, when my father got home or came upstairs, there was tension and almost fear that he would be angry or upset or just in a mood. Since that moment of realization, I've actually had a very difficult time digesting the nature of my relationship with my father, but it has also fueled me to be as good a father as I can be for Eric. I want Eric to feel comfortable and welcome around me as long as I live.

I should add that my father was countered by my mom, with whom I am still extremely close. She is a very caring, compassionate person who wears her heart on her sleeve and is the first person to go out of her way to help anyone she cares about. She and I have always shared a great deal together and I think I've learned a lot of my parenting instincts from her. She was my source of comfort and security growing up, so I guess that makes me a Momma's Boy, but I am proud of that.

She left my father right after I married my wife, after 36 years of marriage. I don't know how she lasted that long, but I am glad she got out.
Title: Re: The DTF Old As Mold Club 30&Over/A.K.A. Andy's Love Advice Forum
Post by: Orbert on March 29, 2012, 01:02:55 PM
Both of my parents were examples of how to do things right, and how not to do things.  They countered each other quite well, actually.  My mom was literally the clichéd screaming old Chinese lady, pure psycho if she got mad enough, but she could be very loving and mushy and supportive.  My dad wasn't home a lot when I was growing up.  He travelled a lot for business, but this was the 70's.  He brought home the bacon; mom raised the kids.  When dad was home, he was never super warm and friendly, but his smile was genuine and his hugs were crushing.  There was never any doubt that he loved us, and it wasn't really his fault that he couldn't be there all the time.  The other side of that was that I never saw him lose his temper.  He was always calm and rational, as he had to be, especially if my mom was going crazy about something.  If he raised his voice, it was just "Hey!" to get our attention, then he would continue maybe at a somewhat elevated volume, but it wasn't like he was screaming and yelling at us.  He kept his composure.

So I try to draw from the best of both of them, and avoid the downsides, knowing that I'm half and half of each of them.  Sometimes I'll do something really stupid and think "Shit, that's just what my mom would've done" and sometimes I'll do something (IMO) pretty cool, and think that that's how my dad would've handled it.  Or vice versa.

Yeah I see elements of both of them in me, though thankfully I think I have more of my mom's disposition than my father's. There are definitely times when I look back in hindsight and realize how a piece of my father emerged in my actions and it disturbs me greatly, though I've been reassured several times that I am a very, VERY different person from my father, which is encouraging.

So I am realizing two events this weekend that are making me feel older than dirt. First, my daughter has only four weeks left of high school.  Second, I recieved an invitation to my 25th high school reunion.  Fuck am I old. :tick:

One nephew just had a baby girl a few months ago.  Time sure does fly.

It's funny; while I realize and aware of how much time has passed since I was young, it doesn't bother me much.

The way I look at it, I have a wonderful family, a job, a home and am relatively healthy. Time can throw itself at me and I think I'm ok.

I have to remind myself of this too sometimes. I wonder where all the time when now that I'm 30. Then I realize that I'm exactly where I wanted to be when I got to this age. I have a wonderful wife and two great little boys. A good job/career. It's hard to ask for much more.

Reminds me of the whole Howard Stern bit....when they play the match game.

HOWARD STERN
All right, now, Let's keep going. Now it's gonna get a little rougher, OK? Everybody ready? Blank a-doodle-doo. Blank a-doodle-doo. [Music Plays] Blank a-doodle-doo. Think about that while the celebrities are writing. Here we are. Let's go over to our Dick Nixon, our own ex-president. What do you got there, Dick?
FRED NORRIS
Well, it takes a Dick to know a cock, and that's what I wrote.
HOWARD STERN
Cock-a-doodle-doo. Now, that's what I would have said. That seemed like the obvious answer. OK, let's go to our own Jackie "The Jokeman" Martling. Jackie The Jokeman?
JACKIE
Gene, I have cock, and I wrote it big. I have a big cock.
HOWARD STERN
Uh, I don't think you can say "big cock" on the radio. I think that's a no-no.
ROBIN QUIVERS
But I just said pussy.
JACKIE
Yeah, she just said pussy.
HOWARD STERN
Yes, pussy is OK. It's the way he says it. "Big cock" coming out of your mouth sounds awfully dirty.
JACKIE
So I can't say "big cock," but you can say "big cock coming out of my mouth"?
HOWARD STERN
That's correct.
JACKIE
That sucks.

Easy - my right hip.  I've had a bad case of hip bursitis since November of 2007 thanks to a busted POS car and a ginormous hill that I had to walk up to catch the bus to work.  I got a cortisone shot for it last year, but the pain never really 100% went away.  If I were in California, I could get a "card" for it since it's lower back pain AND it's been going on for over 4 years.

That okay?

As for me, my right elbow has been aching on the inside for a while now.  Try to stretch out my forearm daily, but for some reason I've evolved into a 'side' sleeper.  When I sleep on my right side, and naturally put my hand under my head, it just kills my elbow the next day.

What else for a fogey ... oh yeah, was walking the dogs yesterday, and one of my favorite :metal tunes came on the iPhone (Flaming Row - Unearth the Truth)... started headbanging and air drumming a little.  Couple of city workers doing some curb work were looking at me like "you look like a doofus headbanging you old turd!".  :lol

So in the past two days I/we (wife and I) have:

- vacuumed the house
- straightened the living room
- straightened and cleaned the kitchen
- steam cleaned the kitchen floor
- steam cleaned the den floor
- taken Eric & Cody on walks both days
- taken 8 bags of trash and useless shit to the dumpster
- gone shopping for foodstuffs for today's cookout
- bought beer & wine to supplement the fully stocked bar we maintain
- bathed Cody and trimmed his nails
- cleaned the living room carpet
- made and formed the burgers
- just put the Bear down for a nap and have 3 hours to chill, perhaps nap, and get ready for company

Not too bad for a weekend....

Like those Austin cops actually give a shit about it.   :lol   It'd certainly be nice to not have to worry about it at all, but most Texas cops don't make you worry too much, anyway.  My guess is that the sort of behavior that'd be required to get you busted up here would get you busted out there, even with a card.

I gather the Sheriff's office down there likes to be hardassed.  However, mandatory minimums shouldn't really apply.  Texas is actually pretty generous in what constitutes a misdemeanor amount, and the county can only push things as far as the state will allow.  First offense misdemeanor possession actually has a mandatory probation provision, rather than any jail time.  Getting hooked up certainly sucks, but it's not the end of the world.

To be clear, they shouldn't be hassling dopers at all, much less taking them to jail for the night, but considering that up to a QP you're going to walk away with some community service, it's really not so bad.  And let's be fair, how many of us have actually every bought a QP entirely for personal use.   :rollin

In WilCo?  Oh yeah.  Travis County/APD?  Yeah, not so much. :lol

TX didn't always used to be so lax though - while I was living in WilCo back in the late 80s/early-mid 90s, you could get popped for having a seed in your car's ashtray (:getoffmylawn:) IF they had prior probable cause to perform a search of your car.  That certainly could have changed in the past 10 years or so, but the WilCo rep is still there.

I totally agree, though - dope smokers are NOT the problem.
