The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Hope I die before I get arthritis

Oops, too late.

Meanwhile, Michele wants an upper age limit on rock performers on stage:

Is there anyone out there who still wants to stare at David Lee Roth's crotch as he attempts a balls-defying split? In leather pants? Hey, these guys can make all the records they want, but I think we need to put a stop to the full-on stadium shows the Viagra generation of rock stars are still putting on. Fifty year old men should not be singing lyrics like She said 'I'll show you how to fax / In the mailroom, honey / And have you home by five' to throngs of barely dressed, barely teen girls. Fifty year old men should not be stomping around a stage in ten inch heels and make up while exhorting the crowd to rock and roll all night and party every day. It's just wrong.

Actually, the part that hurts is this one:

Some day the old guy at the end of the bar will accept the fact that he just doesn't have it anymore. I'll kind of miss him winking at me, but we'll always have the jukebox.

With my luck, it will be packed with disco.

I never had it in the first place, but since when has that ever stopped me?

Isn't age stereotyping and discrimination considered mean-spirited, if not exactly illegal. Michele needs to reconsider her hurtful attitude in an age of diversity, enlightenment, and lengthening life spans. It's not as though it's uncommon for a retired sheriff to have a loaded gun.

True, I-P -- but it's also not altogether uncommon for him not to hit what he's aiming at.

Just a note.. I watched a bit of the osbornes.. Ozzy was on stage and kinda trying to bounce.. You know like he was dancing and it obviously hurt him.. I dont want to see david lee do a crotch splitter either.
