The Aftermath

Well, the houseguests left about noon today...We had our spaghetti meal last night, followed by some good guitar playing and bad singing....as expected, many drinks were consumed, and everyone enjoyed themselves...however, something unexpected happened....

After playing and singing for about 4 hours, my fingers had HAD it...hell, they are still sore now...anyway, the guitars were put away, and conversation drifted onto movies...someone mentioned "The Graduate", and how much they liked it.... personally, I've never liked that movie...or Dustin Hoffman for that matter...although, I do like the fact that he dies at the end of "Midnight Cowboy"…and the fact that he saved the world from a nasty monkey virus in “Outbreak” is pretty cool....sorry, back to the point, the Wife mentions that "The Graduate" is one of her favs...the other young lady present piped up and said she'd never seen it....

Well, you guessed it...the Wife walked over to the movie collection, found it, and threw it in the VCR...I spent the next two hours suffering through that damn movie....it's amazing to see three grown people sing Simon and Garfunkel tunes so badly...anyway, after it went off, I managed to snag the remote control...and we finished off the rest of the night with the tail-end of Men In Black...now THAT is entertainment....

oh, and what the HELL is up with those two twits having stupid looks on their faces at the end of The Graduate..you know....when they are in the back of the bus?..is that supposed to be thought provoking or something?...damn, I hate that movie....

Comments so far:

Ah, c'mon Jarhead! Ya know it's worth it for the scene where the dancer demonstrates her expertise with the dangly pasties! Yer not fooling anyone... Heck, that and the all-to-brief nipple shot in Romeo and Juliet were my first boob shots in the movies when I was a kid (and sneaking into the movies at Sheridan Kaserne in Germany a LONG TIME AGO, in a land far away).

John: I'd forgotten that...yeah, that movie only has one redeeming quality...and that is the pastie scene....oh...and the nylons-being-put-on scene is pretty good too....but, overall, I'd still really like to give Dustin Hoffman a smack upside the head...

Jim: I checked out your website, and I don't think it is the same band...Grapefruit Matters was started by Ally Craig from Tayside...I think his band mainly played stuff around the Dundee and Aberdeen....they had a GREAT song that Ally wrote called "Suddenly Single"..ring any bells with you?

Hi Eric
The only Ally Craig I know is a Harmonica player (brilliant one at that )who plays blues at all the blues festivals .He is also a black belt at Ji jitsu.Be in his late thirties early forties and works as cleansing guy with council.
I to come from Dundee and can honestly say in all my life I have never heard of a band called Grapefruit Matters .I know another Ally ..but he is a nurse and just a friend of the singer from my band ...anyways thanks for your answer and hope I can hear them sometime .bye for now..Jim
