A place to get lost in nostalgia via my friend, Hyde. I was a regular at The Warehouse from about 1975 through about 1979 but I saw quite a few shows before 1975. The contributors who compiled that website are probably a few years older than me. Looks like they were regulars a bit earlier than me and tapered off later but I saw a lot of the same shows they did. There was a show there almost every week. Unfortunately, I didn't save anything. Didn't collect ticket stubs and the first merchandising I ever saw at a concert was at Sam Houston Coliseum in Houston in 1976. I only have two t-shirts from concerts. That Deep Purple w/Nazareth t-shirt and the one I got for Pink Floyd's Division Bell Tour. Some of those links have reviews. I think that's the real fun at the site. Seeing ticket stubs for $3.50 is kind of nostalgic, too.
Caught the last minute of the men's gold medal basketball game this morning. Afraid that was the only minute of these Olympics I saw live. Fun to see Chris Paul make a great play at the end. Love what the Hornets are doing now but I'm still a big fan of former Hornet, CP3.
About today's QOTD: It's from Fred Astaire to Adolphe Menjou and it's about Menjou's daughter in the film, Rita Hayworth. He had a point. There's pretty like Ginger Rogers and then there's 12 car pileup gorgeous like Rita Hayworth. You Were Never Lovelier is a lot of fun.
I offer one from the CrabAppleLane backyard. August is pretty dreary around here. Hot, hot, hot.

Quote from said blog: "There are about 60 over there, all these pretty-colored buses, and this is their last day today. It’s quite the sight to see all these buses there, and tomorrow morning, they’ll all be gone. We were just saying, just seeing all those buses there, we should have taken some pictures of them."
