80's music is the bestest evah!
Posted: 7/2/2009 1:00:40 PM
slow hand 001,

I was a nightclub DJ from 1984 until 1990, and I agree with you that the 1980's - era Chicago house remixes were the best. The junk they play in dance clubs today cannot compare to the style and creativity of the 1980's house music. Here are few others you may remember:

White Knight - "Jack The House"
White Knight - "Yo Baby"
Bar-Kays - "Sex-O-Matic"
Rockmaster Scott - "The Roof Is On Fire"
Royal House - "Can You Party?"
Divine - "Native Love"
Phil Fearon - "House Party"
Mickey Oliver - "In-Ten-Si-T"
Steve Hurley - "House Train"
Steve Hurley - "Jack Your Body"
Bobby Orlando - "She Has A Way"
Kenny Jammin Jason - "Can U Dance"

These cuts always packed the dance floor!

question about david letterman
Posted: 6/16/2009 2:16:22 PM
Letterman SHOULD retire. Years ago he was a relatively amusing comedian...now he is a cynical 62-year-old who uses his TV show to vent his hatred towards people he disagrees with politically. His act has become old and stale...exit stage left, Mr. Letterman.

question about david letterman
Posted: 6/14/2009 6:34:07 PM
I can only imagine the outcry from the media and the Democrats had Letterman made that same tasteless "joke" about Jimmy Carter's daughter Amy (when she was a teenager) or Hillary Clinton's daughter Chelsea (when she was a teenager). There is an overwhelming bias in the media against anyone who identifies themselves as a Conservative and/or Republican. Whatever happened to civility in this country?

Where is the National Organization for Women (NOW)? Why haven't they demanded a public apology from Letterman? I'm sure I know the answer...

The children of politicians should always be kept out of the public forum. Shame on Letterman for what he said. Why does he continue to denegrate Sarah Palin? The election was over eight months ago. Enough already.

I had quite a collection of Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars as a child. When I became a teenager that infatuation with toy cars grew into an infatuation with real cars. I still enjoy going to classic car shows in the summer. Once a motorhead, always a motorhead.

Old TV Shows
Posted: 5/21/2009 4:51:59 PM
Don Knotts made that show a success. When he left in 1965 the show was never the same and only lasted three more seasons. One of my favorite characters on that show was Ernest T. Bass. Barney would beg Andy to take Ernest T. out back to the alley in order to slap him around and Andy would reply "He'd kill ya!". Another favorite was when Barney took judo lessons to take on Fred the grocery store clerk. And how about when Barney bought a stolen car from a group of car thieves led by a little old lady?

Old TV Shows
Posted: 5/21/2009 2:39:31 PM
A friend of mine gave me a DVD of the TV show "M Squad" starring Lee Marvin. Does anyone remember this show? It was set in Chicago and aired in the late 1950's. The theme music was performed by Count Basie. An interesting trivia item: One episode of M Squad featured a crooked Chicago cop who was taking bribes. Mayor Daley saw this episode and was so angry that he banned any TV show or movie from being filmed in Chicago. The ban lasted until 1979 when Mayor Byrne allowed the "Blues Brothers" movie to be filmed in Chicago. The rest is history...

Onion breath
Posted: 5/19/2009 1:31:43 PM
I was discussing this very same topic the other day with some friends at the health club. We have a significant Korean population where I live, and these folks use a lot of garlic in their cooking. In fact garlic is a daily staple and many Koreans eat it raw for perceived health reasons. But using a treadmill next to someone who consumes large amounts of garlic can be a real challenge. I suggest that any of us who are out on a date refrain from ordering the garlic potatoes or French onion soup at dinner!

Does ignoring a guy really get his attention?
Posted: 5/13/2009 1:28:55 PM
When I was at a party, bar or other social occasion, one of my friends used to make me laugh when he said, "I can tell she likes me by the way she is ignoring me". The problem is that when a woman ingores a man she is actually interested in she runs the risk of him thinking she is stuck up, conceited, a b**ch, or just not interested, and thus the opportunity for them to meet is lost. It's similar to an old wives tale that your mother might have told you... ignoring men will make them more interested in you. That may have been true years ago but these days few guys are willing to play the chase game anymore. What's the point? If you are interested in the guy, let him know!

It's good to see so many Mopar fans on a singles dating site...go figure! As a lifelong gearhead and Mopar lover, it's hard to choose a favorite. But I would have to say the 1971 Plymouth 'Cuda in Hemi Orange with a 426 Hemi and Pistol Grip four speed would be the ultimate Mopar. A close second would be the 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T, 1971 Road Runner, 1970 Dodge Charger, 1970 Dodge Coronet R/T, 1970 Dodge Swinger 340, 1970 AAR Cuda, 1973 Duster 340, 1967 or 1968 Chrysler 300, 1970 Chrysler 300 Hurst Edition, 1967 Plymouth GTX, and the list goes on and on....

Every teenage male's dream car in the 70's was the Pontiac Trans Am. Not the Corvette, not the Mustang, but the Trans Am. If you owned a Trans Am in the 70's you were the most popular kid in school.

As a teenager growing up in the 70's I remember CB radios. My friends and I all installed CB radios in our cars. The predecessor to the mobile telephone? Maybe, but CB's were inexpensive, free to use and a lot of fun. 10-4!

Favorite 007 film?
Posted: 2/16/2009 2:07:30 PM
My vote for Best Bond Girl is undoubtedly Caroline Munro. She was in "The Spy Who Loved Me" (1977). Prior to being a Bond girl she was in "The Golden Voyage Of Sinbad". A strikingly beautiful woman with an amazing figure.

Favorite 007 film?
Posted: 2/10/2009 7:56:07 PM
The early Bond films with Sean Connery were the best. In my opinion, Goldfinger was the best of the series, with Thunderball a very close second. From Russia With Love deserves an honorable mention for having an excellent plot. Diamonds Are Forever was awful, and Connery really showed his age. One of the many elements that made the early Bond films so great were the exotic locations they were filmed in. James Bond represented the "swinging 1960's" single man especially well. The early Bond movies have a certain "look" about them that is long-gone from today's films. And they were aimed directly at the young male audience by featuring cars, girls, sex, booze, guns, and fistfights. The first Roger Moore film, "Live and Let Die", was his best film. The TV show, "The Man From Uncle", used some of the same writers from the Bond films.

A cold ass winter for some!
Posted: 2/6/2009 8:06:29 PM
Record low temperatures across the U.S., snow in california and Las Vegas, ice storms in Kentucky, here in Chicago we are experiencing one of the most severe winters in 20 years...all proof of global warming? Where's Al Gore lately? Is he still inventing the Internet?

And who says we get free assistance with our heating costs in Chicago? If that is true I sure would like to know how to get that assistance. Our heating bills doubled two years ago thanks to our Illinois senate leader who is in bed with the electric and gas companies. I am sure you folks have heard the horror stories about political corruption in Illinois...the stories are all true. Our governor was just impeached. And of course, the Lt. Governor who took his place just a week ago is already planning to raise our gasoline tax. This state is out of control.

Moving down south
Posted: 2/2/2009 11:20:53 AM
The occasions that I have traveled through the southern states have been like visiting another planet. I love the South! The people are friendly and approachable and the pace is not as hectic. The climate is better too. Eventually I will move south, just don't know where yet. Here in the Chicago area things are getting worse all of the time. We have the highest sales tax in the country, a high cost of living, rampant political corruption (our governor was just impeached), and the winters are getting more severe every year. Yep, southern hospitality sounds good to me!

How to leave the first coffee date without hurting him
Posted: 1/20/2009 5:30:42 PM
This topic has been covered many times in other forums, but I will gladly add my suggestions. First, meet in the middle of the afternoon, around 2:00 at a coffee shop as you mentioned. This way it is too late for lunch and too early for dinner. And, tell him you are going to your brother/sister/friends house for dinner and have to leave by 3:00 or 4:00. Always give yourself an "exit strategy" in case your meeting doesn't go well.

If you both like each other, simply exchange phone numbers and make plans to get together very soon. Good things come to those who wait!

Good Luck!

Are women on the East coast more difficult to approach than other areas of the country?
Posted: 1/6/2009 8:07:17 PM
Want to know how to talk to a brick wall? Come to Chicago. Try talking to women here and you will get a menacing look and maybe even be arrested.

On a more serious note, I have found that whenever I traveled to the southern states it was like visiting a foreign country. Women there were incredibly friendly and approachable. Southern hospitality is not a myth!

how did dating change for you when u turned 30
Posted: 1/5/2009 6:55:08 PM
Dating changed dramatically when I was in my 30's because almost every one of the women I dated was intensely focused on marriage. When I was in my 20's most of the girls only cared if you were "cute", had a nice car or your own apartment. The dating scene definitely changed in my 30's...and it continues to evolve.

Question For The Guys
Posted: 12/28/2008 6:24:58 PM
Gentlemen,

Just wondering how many of you have found, as I have, that women who do NOT come from wealthy families make better partners? Having dated women from "both sides of the tracks", I am always more impressed with gals who have achieved and accomplished in life without any help from "Daddy". They are much more independent, down to earth and confident.

Any of you guys see it the same way?

*Note: This is not a swipe at rich girls.

Do guys like girls who ask them out?
Posted: 12/20/2008 4:01:34 PM
The traditional roles that society has placed on men and women has changed dramatically. I think that most men would be very flattered to be asked out by a woman. Something simple like, " We should get together sometime" would be music to most men's ears. Women have become more aggressive in the business world...they should do the same in the dating world.

Good Luck!

GROCERY SHOPPING!! Habits? Men vs. Women? What You Get? Let's Discuss Grocery/Food Shopping!!
Posted: 12/14/2008 8:14:02 PM
I am slightly off topic, but here are a couple of observations from a male grocery shopper. Have you guys noticed the "cartblock" technique? Yes, the "cartblock", not the other "block". This is when a woman, typically a little older, blocks the front of a display area with her shopping cart to keep other shoppers away while she is looking things over. It could be anything...the apples, potatoes, bread...it doesn't matter, just don't try to invade her space.

Second is the ankle-smasher, expertly performed and delivered by elderly ladies. This is when granny uses the shopping cart as a bulldozer to move the check out line along a little faster. I always know that the senior citizens were shopping when I leave the store with bruised ankles.

And last but not least is the check out line cheater. When you are waiting in line with your cart in front of you, this gal lines up next to you, not behind you. She slowly inches forward little by little, looking the other way or reading a magazine, and before you realize it she is in line in front of you. Very sneaky but highly effective.

Be on the lookout for these grocery store offenders!

Betty Page
Posted: 12/12/2008 4:11:28 PM
I know who Bettie Page was but she was an icon long before I was born. In the early 1960's it was Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield and perhaps Connie Stevens, and later in the 60's it would have to be Raquel Welch. As a teenager in the 1970's I would relate more to someone like Farrah Fawcett who was very, very popular at that time.

Do you remember the sixties
Posted: 12/7/2008 8:29:23 PM
Nebula,

Chrysler's first Hemi engine was the 354 in 1955 and the 392 in 1957. The "Wedge Head" engine replaced the Hemi in 1958. In 1964 the new version of the Hemi engine was introduced, measuring 426 cubic inches and known as the "Street Hemi". The last year that the 426 Street Hemis were available in Chrysler, Plymouth and Dodge cars was 1971.

I believe that Dodge offered a 332 Hemi in 1952-53 known as the "Red Ram", and DeSoto also had their own version called the "Fire Dome".

Obviously I am a Mopar fanatic!
