88|Kiki Dee_I've Got The Music In Me [1974]




I'VE GOT THE MUSIC IN ME (Bias Boshell)
© 1974 Rocket Music Limited / April Music Limited

Ain't got no trouble in my life
No foolish dream to make me cry
I'm never frightened or worried
I know I'll always get by
I heat up
I cool down
When something gets in my way I go round it
Don't let life get me down
Gonna take it the way that I found it

I got the music in me

They say that life is a circle
But that ain't the way that I found it
Gonna move in a straight line
Keepin' my feet firmly on the ground
I heat up
I cool down
I got words in my head so I say them
Don't let life get me down
Catcha hold of my blues and just play them

I got the music in me

Feel funky feel good
Gonna tell you I'm in the neighbourhood
Gonna fly like a bird on the wing
Hold on to your hat honey sing sing sing sing

I heat up
I cool down
I got words in my head so I sing them
Don't let life get me down
Catcha hold of my blues and just play them

I got the music in me

Ain't got no trouble in my life
No foolish dream to make me cry
I'm never frightened
I'm never worried
I know
I know
I always know

I got the music in me

I got the music
pretty music
I go the music
in me

(No No No
Don't let it get you down

I got the music in me.


I know I'll always get by
I heat up
I cool down
When something gets in my way I go round it
Don't let life get me down
Gonna take it the way that I found it

Don't let it get you down
I got the music

ANDERSON COOPER
A Hero. For caring too much.
About everything.

And still managing a great giggle!



Whether it's a dying child in Haiti, a corrupt politician in New Orleans, corrupt politicians in general, secretive Scientologists, or his continued passionate reporting on bullying in schools, and his raw reporting with the families of 11 - 15 year old children who commit suicide, even to the point of sharing the fact that his own brother committed suicide.

There's never been a reporter as compelling as Anderson Cooper.

And what a life. Gloria Vanderbilt's son.

Photographed by Diane Arbus when he was days old.

He can do whatever he wants, with whomever he pleases, and I really don't have a need to know the dirt.

He's got enough dirt under his fingernails from his reporting.

Truth be told, I'd love to be a fly on the wall at his shrink's office!!!


Still, though, telling David Guergen that "it's hard to talk when your tea-bagging" absolutely takes the cake, and in itself, deserves an Emmy.

For balls.

Ten CDs (ok, after cassette & vinyl)
which changed my life.

In no specific order, I am attempting to put into some form "other music" which grabbed my attention after the discos closed for the night, and the pre-adolescent fascinations and obsessions with Queen and Elton John, with one exception, wore off (or, simply morphed into the "completist" category.)

I'm avoiding the more "dance-oriented category" altogether, barring one Depeche Mode entry, because there's a list of its own on the way. Most of these CDs were worn out in my legendary depressed moods. So I suppose they are all great music. Barring a few bouncy tunes to help me wash the dishes...right, Peter?
























PS: No. I won't upload any of these CDs. If I get the energy, and even care, I'll post iTunes links to each!

I would know. I spent four horrifying years at Xavier, four terrible years at Mount Carmel, and four absolutely nightmarish years at Holy Cross.

And one of these days, I'm going to name names.

And I have the proof. You know, stuff that would stand up in court.

Bullying has got to stop. NOW.

Suddenly,
my life doesn't seem such a waste...

Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen...

Everything has a price.
And even Superman has hit hard times.


Christopher Reeve's and John Haymes Newton's Superman/Superboy Cape and Boots. In 1988, producers Alexander and Ilya Salkind, the brothers who at that point had produced four Superman movies and a Supergirl movie, brought the syndicated TV series Superboy to the small screen. The series featured John Haymes Newton as a college-age Clark Kent/Superboy, opposite Stacy Haiduk as love interest Lana Lang (after Season 1, Newton was replaced by Gerard Christopher for the remainder of the series). During the show's first season, the Salkinds kept a tight budgetary leash on the first 13 episodes in order to save money until knowing for certain the series would be picked up for a full season. In the process, they re-used costumes from the Superman movies for the Superboy series. This cape and pair of boots was originally made for and worn by actor Christopher Reeve in the movie series, and later worn by Newton during the TV series. The boots are in Very Fine condition with some wear from production use. The padded heavy wool cape is in Excellent condition and has snaps on the inner lining for attaching it to the Superboy costume, and has three tags sewn into the lining, reading "Walking Cape (1978)", "Epcot Center/No. 2 Walking Cape/B Cape - Good", and "Remade Nov/89". The items are accompanied by a notarized letter of authenticity from Newton, dated April 29, 2005, and a b&w 8" x 10" photo of the actor, both signed by him.
Estimate: $12,000 - up.
