I'm Not The Man I Used To Be




Forty Fucking Four!, Jesus!

I think I'm past the revitalizing cream stage.

Happy Birthday Drew, hope its a good one. Suspect we've reached an age where it doesn't really matter what the number is, at least til we get around 49.

Speaking as a half century merchant, you can all continue playing marbles in those short trousers and snotty noses.

Thanks for posting that, drewster. For all my years, I've never heard that mix before.

Not the men we used to be ... but, just perhaps .. in some ways .. we're actually .. far better.

An ounce of love and strength is all I can offer you.

Happy birthday mate, hope you're having a good day. I hit the double fours back in Feb. It's not too bad. It's the fact that it's 30 years since I was 14 that's scaring me. 30 years before that and Elvis wasn't even around.

Never heard this remix, and much as I love piano it can't escape the shadow of the original. Once, in a dull council job, I spent my days plotting imaginary sequels to films. This was the soundtrack for the opening scenes of my Ferris Bueller sequel, Save Ferris...

Enjoy the blog, thanks for doing it.

Happy Birthday Drew! One week from today I will be spending my 50th!!! sipping wine and eating a meal in Madrid which will look more like a work of art than food. I will raise my glass to you as I hum The Facts of Life by Black Box Recorder to myself...Cheers!

Happy birthday Drew. Speaking from a venerable 55 I would say you get used to it (and 55 feels like 44 feels like 33...), though the numbers do clock up a bit sharpish nowadays. It was 40 that really hit me, 50 was a breeze, but I suspect 60 might be a bit painful - not least when trying to cart boxes of records around the house! :)

"Omanya constant", as the word veri has it.
