I um, just meant, um sometimes that Captain you like opens you up and your pretty funny when you want to be. :-]

Ohhlala indeed! :-] I sooooo love to swim.
Perfection is a shimmering blue pool, a Shocky Special in my hand, and "Define Dancing" playing on the hifi.
Jump in y'all! The water is great!

I have days like that too. And yes a little captain can make a difference! As for me, I just wish the dishwasher would stop so I can make another pot of coffee!

Wish I knew how to swim, but I can't. However, I would love to learn how to: it's one of those dreams I hope to come true someday.

Ah, hello JooleyAnn, you slipped under my radar again!

We're teaching my daughter (4.5 years old) to swim this summer. We want to make sure she can enjoy such a fun sport! But it's never too late to learn, Mr. C!
Dana, I'm sneaky that way.

Looks fun in here tonight!
Sorry Dana, had to run out for a wee bit, back nowz!
So where is the Shock Man with all his specials? Call it a night did he?

JooleyAnn - It's a relief to know so. I'm actually planning to take some swimming instructions.
Soul Reader - Indeed. Tonight looks promising!
Dana2 August 2011 at 2:12amPosts: 267 (0 today)Status: offline
Hey again people-sorry to keep popping in and out like I am. Life gets in the way sometimes.
Good job on the swimming, Mr C. There's no time like now. And remember, it's a natural thing. You just forgot how, that's all!

I volunteer to give the swimming lessons for any that would like to learn. Back in my Coast Guard days, I had to be a very good swimmer, lol.

Never too late to learn! I have a friend who just learned. She's in her 50's.
So, I finally watched Wall-E the other day, and I'm curious - the album on Amazon lists PG as the writer of JUST the song he sings over the end credits. IMDB implies the same.
But I read elsewhere that PG also worked on the score - - with Thomas Newman.
Anyone know which is correct? Just wondering.

My fathers method was fun ~ 'if ya cant swim, fly'.
and he would throw us out of his trusting arms into the water.
It was a fun way to learn. I have never been afaid of water, so I guess that makes it a whole lot more acceptable. Each of his 4 children were taught the same way. Even Mommy (ha, just kidding on the Mommy part) - he probably saved that trick for their bedroom!
MC where do you live that you have not had the privledge?

Jooley, I have not seen this movie, all I heard though was PG only did 'down to earth'.
Was the movie good?
Mr_Clueless2 August 2011 at 2:57amPosts: 2013 (0 today)Status: offline
Thanks for the support, folks! I'm feeling much more confident now!
It's not really a matter of location Moonstorm, at least not as much as a matter of fact that I was too lazy to learn it while I was a little boy and never had interest about learning it. Until now.
Perhaps it was the other way round: Thomas Newman collaborated with PG to compose Down To Earth, at least that's how Wikipedia brings it.
JooleyAnn2 August 2011 at 3:05amPosts: 134 (0 today)Status: offline
Ah. Wikipedia! I shall go there.
Wall-E was absolutely delightful. Quite possibly my favorite Pixar film to date, and I've now seen them all! Well, except Cars. (Thank God I had a girl.)
Ahhhhh, ~MWAH!~ to you, Mr. C! Wikipedia says that PG & Thomas Newman won the Grammy for "Arrangers" of "Define Dancing." Best Instrumental Arrangement. Huzzah, Wikipedia, knower of all.

I think it's time to Teach Billy The Excellent Bird some new PG lyrics.
So far he knows :
You got me cooking I'm a hard boiled egg Squak!
Snow white pillow for my big fat head Squak!
Hey Billy can you say -Backslap, boobytrap,
Cover it up in bubblewrap,
Squak! Backslap, boobytrap,
Cover it up in bubblewrap,Squak!
