The Offspring, at the Coogee Bay Hotel

>From The Offspring , 'Self Esteem'

Now I'll relate, this little bit
That happens more than I'd like to admit
Late at night, she knocks on my door
She's drunk again and, looking to score
Now I know, I should say no, but
That's kind of hard when she's ready to go
I may be dumb, but I'm not a dweeb
I'm just a sucker with no self esteem

Chorus

When she's saying, all that she want's only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she's saying, that I'm like a disease
Then I wonder how much more I can spend
Well I guess, I should speak up for myself
But I really think it's better this way
The more you suffer
The more it shows you really care Right? Yeah!

Kind of how I felt back in 95 in Sydney with a girl I was seeing/chasing. I really like The Offspring

I am lately using Pandora.com to listen to music. I am a music nerd. Never really collected LPs and CDs. But I did know some odd stuff that I liked. Pandora takes that and expands on similar sounding bands. So now I have designed 4 'radio stations'. One I started with Dick Dale and learned about the Blue Stingrays and the Legends of Surf. Another I entered The Offspring and got Rammstein and others of that ilk (which I privately like loud). But then I looked up the sound track to 'Oh Brother, Where Art Thou', the George Clooney movie. I liked the female vocalists featured in that so I found her name on IMDB (Alison Kraus). And then another station I began with Stan Ridgway. Yes, I really DO have odd taste in music. But the Ridgway sation gets a lot of English post punk/new way stuff, which I like, but do not want on that station. So... you just choose the thumbs down button. If I want another station with Aha, Roxy Music, etc, then I can design it. Oh, and then you can simply hit the 'Mix' button and all the stations will play, changing over from one stream to the other.

So, I like this system.

Offspring. I went to see them in Sydney at the Coogee Bay Hotel. I recall the girl and I was with and how our beers went flying out of our hands, into the air, when The Offspring started up. Fun, fun.
