TASTE OF NEWPORT! [Sep. 19th, 2005|04:26 pm]
The American Caliban

This is how people dance in my town. Particularly how they dance after they've had three or four small pieces of food on skewers and 6 beers, and Hootie and the Blowfish is playing.

dance dance

At This Moment

Billy Vera is a nice guy. I remember when he had his BIG! BREAK! because his song was "featured" on an episode of Family Ties and then it was on the radio for about a week. Then he went back to playing dance music for white people in cargo shorts.

Re: At This Moment

that episode of family ties is one of my most memorable moments in 1980s television. i LOVED alex p. keaton, which is bizarre because i have a feeling that i would now HATE him.

When I saw "Taste of Newport" I immediately thought you meant alive with pleasure, like this.

To this day, I still cannot hear the words "Hootie & the Blowfish" without immediately thinking of this: http://www.theonion.com/content/node/30102.
