Leif Garrett

HerNameIsBuffy

2,645 views

i want to thank @violynn that I needed Leif Garret circa 1970 something in my life.  

No crushing on him even in the day, but I can appreciate great hair and a fun poppy cover of Runaround Sue.

Leif is indeed on Spotify.  If you see a woman of a certain age singing along with him on her commute tomorrow...it's not me.  Way too dignified for thst.

I had that album til it fell apart.  Not from kissing it, of course.  I still sing "I Was Made For Dancing" while I'm cleaning!

Scott Baio sang?  How did I not know this?  

I was probably too busy being defrauded by his much cuter cousin, Jimmy.

I wasn't allowed to watch Soap because my mom was fundy-lite by then and it was "almost pornography"  but I saw the Bad News Bears in Breaking Training about 900 times.  

And for the cognitive dissonance as to why the Bad News Bears were okay and Soap wasn't...my mom didn't see the movie and I wasn't about to tell her about the stuff of which she wouldn't approve and fortunately none of the busy-bodies at her church were yammering about it like they were Soap.

But Three's Company was fine...because no one was having sex.  I guess my mom thought Larry upstairs was just super hospitable...but for the rest of them it seems about right.  Hell, even the Ropers weren't getting any and they were "allowed."

Yes he did!  I had totally blocked that out!  

And just because it made me laugh here is a Chachi doll sitting on a mailbox...

Chachi's doll is so...beefy.

Did you know that David Soul from Starsky & Hutch also sang?  I may or may not have had that tape.  It was... ...catchy.  Yes, I'm a dork too.

I did not...but that was a show my dad and brother watched so I had to hate it by definition. :)

I believe this is my favorite thread ever.  Now I'm singing "Da do ra run run"...Shaun Cassidy had such a fun pop music cassette, and Shaun and Parker Stevenson were so cute in The Hardy Boys!

We just talked about Marc Singer on one of the doxing threads...because drift...pics, too.

William Katt is the son of the actress Barbara Hale who played Della Street in the old Perry Mason series.  Little trivia for everyone.

Yeah but Soap had an openly gay character -- wasn't that a first for prime time?  That's what I remember it getting lots of attention for.

Hey Deanie and It's only Rock N Roll were among the first songs I grabbed on spottify.  "Let's see some sweat for the boooooys in the band..." will never not be fun.

I may or may not have ruined this album cover by covering it with Bonnie Bell lip smacker.

Yes, Billy Crystal was the first openly gay character on US tv.  It was a bold move, especially for that time.

My mom wouldn't have been weird about that - if there were people living together without marriage (sans clearly no sex and wacky hi-jinks of Threes Company) that would have been the issue for her.

I completely understand.  That happened to Leif's albums and all his posters.   I think my most embarrassing moment came when my brother caught me singing (using my curling iron as a micriphone, of course) Olivia N John's "Hopelessly Devoted to You" to my supersized Leif Garrett poster,

Who was into Knots Landing 

I loved Knots Landing, we didn't get a vcr until 1988 and then because my parents were renovating the house and lived in the garage/loft I lived in the house - I would wake up after taping it and watch it at like 4 in the morning

Somewhere I have an audio cassette I made of KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park when it was on TV.  With an old tape recorder just put next to the TV.  There were Polaroids of the screen at various times, but they've been lost to history.

I still have a 16 magazine of Scott Baio's pic somewhere in my closet

      I find anyone who only thinks their political and religious beliefs are right and thinks anyone who doesn't agree with them are brainwashed insufferable. I will likely never vote for the UK Conservative party because I don't share their values but I have had respect to some extent respect for the party leaders and Prime Ministers who do a difficult job regardless of what I think of them. Boris may be the exception to this because he is so terrible and makes me miss Theresa May and Gordon Brown and those two were bad at being PM.

      Ah you're right Ezra turned 14 in May. I thought his birthday was in the late fall / winter like the other kids. It looks like Simon and Della are almost 3 years. Then she really hits her stride: Della and Evy and Nola are a couple months shy of 2 years, Evy and Nola and Theo are a few months over 2 years, Theo and Honor are two years and a month, and Honor and Shiloh are also 2 years and a month. The new babies will be about a 1 and a half years younger than Shiloh.

      Is Simon 13, or soon to be such?

    • Newest "Life with Gwen and Joe".  It's about "The Importance of Christ-like Words and Speech."  It's the week of camp and I don't see anything approaching social-distancing at all.  Gwen is in shorts and a little top with spaghetti straps.  Of course, she's got on platform heel with it.  Silly, vain woman...  She starts out by talking about the tongue and about how much trouble you can cause with it.  She goes over the "not taking the Lord's name in vain" in the Ten Commandments" (which she refers to as "the top ten commands") and then she says that you shouldn't even use replacement words for the bad words because Jesus probably wouldn't do that either. And if you're out there in the world using cuss words or sounds-like cuss words, you're responsible for messing up God's kingdom.

      Gwen says that people who talk pleasantly and without anger or cuss words have a better life.  She specifically reminds the boys that they're "not cool" if they use bad worlds or words that sound like cuss words.  She says that others will roll their eyes at them and they will be in a minority.  They'll stand out for the wrong things.  People won't like them.

      Joe, once again, got very little speaking time.  Gwen let him read a few verses and, at the end, he got to talk about how proud he was of all the campers.

      Spoiler

       

      At the ends, Joe tries to start dancing with Gwen but she just stands there.  Is the bloom off this particular boy-toy, Gwen??

      Spoiler
