    My friends and I relived our youth a few years ago and saw Yaz on a "reunion" tour. They were amazing! Allison Moyet's voice was absolutely perfect!

    Her voice is amazing! I can do a pretty good edition of 'Only You'- if we ever meet we'll have to go do some karaoke!! ;-D Allison did a guest spot on a French & Saunders episode (it was their Christmas Special) where she sang lead and F & S did background vocals but they were horrible (intentionally, for laughs) but Allison never once lost her composure and sang pitch perfect, which is very hard to do if someone is singing off-key next to you.

    I loved the version of I Feel Love by Bronski Beat featuring Marc Almond. Where he sings Johnny Remember Me. I have a rare 10" version.

    Just downloading The Age of Consent from ITunes. Listening to Why? as the rest of the album's downloading. Scrap that, I'm listening to Ain't Necessarily So now. It's been over 25 years since I heard this song.

    The past is depressing and empty, the langoliers digested it and turned it into nothing.

    To Erik's last question: Yes. When I read "A Separate Peace" and it exposed my inner darkness to myself.

    Here's something I saw in Carrie that spoke to me:

    "But hardly anybody ever finds out that their actions really, actually, hurt other people! People don't get better, they just get smarter. When you get smarter, you don't stop pulling the wings off flies, you just think of better reasons for doing it."

    True. Amen brother. Park it right there and Preach it!

    William Buckley once said the same thing on Firing Line (in different words of course). My quote won't be perfect, but this is the gist of it:

    "We think we've advanced morally from our ancestors because we no longer burn witches. But we haven't. We simply no longer believe in witches. If we did believe in them, we'd be burning them."

    I remember years ago not reading Carrie (I'd never seen the movie) because I didn't find the idea frightening. I mean, a girl with telekinesis? Whatever. This time I read it because I'm trying to read more of King's work and because I felt as if I'd missed something. I did watch the newer movie with my older kids a couple weeks ago (it was ok). But once I was reading it, I saw the fright in it. I mean, a hormonal, mistreated teen-age girl, raised in a weird and distorted religious swamp, with no outlets for her personality, who has the power to kill on a whim...that is frightening. Makes me think about how important it is to raise our kids carefully, and right.
