What the heck was the name of that single? It's making me crazy.

Most likely Fly High Michelle.



That was the B side.  I think my single was for New Thing.

New Thing! That's it! Man, I loved that song back then. Haven't heard it since, though, so not sure what I'd think now.

S'what I'm saying, man.  Enuff Z'nuff was pretty good if you didn't have to look at them.

They were really a power pop group who just happened to dress like glam metal clowns.  I bet Red Kross and Jellyfish wish they could rethink some of their fashion choices from back in the day as well.

Thanks, Wherle! That was awesome. Now I feel compelled to fire up the Hair Metal station in Pandora.  :laugh:

I'll sponsor the field fiddy cent an hour (maybe more if not many people do it.)

I'm going to have to reduce the amount from 50 cents to 25 cents per hour.

I'm in on Saturday.  This should be interesting.   

Only doing 8 hours, now.

Ok, I think I'm going to try for Rick'n'Rolla on Wednesday the 29th.

I have a webcam... and possibly props. Although I doubt filming the 8 hours will be all that noteworthy.

Shoot.. I put this in the slightly wrong thread. But I'm in.

On Halloween, I'll be attempting to listen to 8 hours of Everlast's version of "Folsom Prison Blues".

Check the other Torturethon thread for the video link.

Alright, I'm in for at least two songs for a minimum of six hours each, the first being "Lovefool" by The Cardigans (which should count for more since that song never leaves your head), and the Friends theme song. That damn clapping!

I'll also go in for 20 cents an hour per person.

Don't think YOU'RE getting out of here without joining pal!

Also, today I raised $87!!

Since I'll have limited internet access today, I think the radio is it for me this year.

Crossposted from the general thread:

I'm going to jump in this year.
JohnnyRoyale convinced me, and I recently found the most horribly perfect thing for me. It's not "music" per se, but it's the most horrific thing I can think of to listen to on repeat.    :-[

A 2 x LP copy of Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man And The Sea read by Charlton Heston.
Total program time is: 2h 22m 56s and I've pledged to listen to the entire book four consecutive times.

I'll be starting at around midnight on 12/05 and going until I'm done.
