I woudn't know a Ramones song if it jumped up and bit me. Perhaps I should give them a listen.

I actually went with "Pinhead". I might have to hit the youtubes to get that one out of my head :)

I like fast STRAIGHT descents. There are a couple on my usual routes where I can easily hit 35-40 mph, though only briefly. Technical descents scare me, partly because I'm so out of practice doing them, which makes them even scarier, and that makes me even less practiced, which makes me more anxious, etc. Lather, rinse repeat.

I kinda got burned out on the Ramones by 1990 or so. They were just played everywhere I went back in the '80s.

Thinking of the Ramones reminds me of when the ex and I were in NYC in 2002. We walked by CBGB and she was all embarrassed because I was wearing a Bush shirt. I dunno why, seemed like a bunch of mall punks hanging out there anyways,

Sorry lady, I LOVE the Bush!!!

This is one of the few songs I was able to play on the gee-tar. It's stupid easy, as a punk song should be.

p.s. even the guitar solo is easy. It's one note, over and over again. Easy peasy!

And there is thing classic. Do you know who is singing? Lol Lobos did a great version for the Disney tribute album.

Sheena is probably my favorite, along with Rockaway Beach.

Up on the roof, out in the street
Down in the playground, the hot concrete
Bus ride is too slow
They blast out the disco on the radio

Los Lobos can do just about anything.

This tune is my favorite (semi) current East Coast Three Chord Rock. A little less frantic than the Ramones...

Another way to think about it is, there's a saying, "Don't invest any money in stocks that you can't afford to lose", which is the same thing you say about gambling.

A Blue Heron was eating the fish from a koi pond of a guy I worked with. He thought it was the dog until he put up a camera. He showed me a pic of the thing on a wire, it was huge.
