Dear Bernard:
yes, she wrote several books, but i believe "Wide Sargasso Sea" was one of her best known works. Another book I really like a lot (and the movie was also very well done) is "Rebecca", by Daphne Du Maurier. Loved it, but read it quite a while ago. I believe the movie version was also in black and white, at least the one i liked the best...there was another, but i didn't care for it as much as the "original" black and white version.
As we have discussed, i read A LOT! These two books though, are two of my favorites, along with WH and JE.
thanks for the post!
love,
joyce

Dear Joyce
"Rebecca" is on of my mother's favorites, too! I'm sure she bought the black and white movie on VHS some years ago. I seem to recall a TV series of the book, but can't remember when it was made.

I think I read about 40 books from cover to cover last year, browsed through many others.

Dear James:
here is the post I sent on the other forum, along with the link...enjoy!:

Dear Rokroller (James, Hinch, and all other Van Halen Fans!):
Hey! sounds like you had a great time with VH! here's one of my FAVS of theirs for you...I know it's "sexist", which (truth be told) several of their songs are, and that DOES bother me; however, it is an awesome song....one of their best, imo, and also an AWESOME video! Can you guess what it is?????
o.k., time's up! Let's see if you were right, shall we!!
http://youtu.be/-4GZFbCqx18
btw, hope your ability to watch videos on youtube is better than mine right now! for some reason, I cannot watch anything! i can go to youtube website, type in any video/artist, pull up the list of available videos, but when i hit to play, nothing happens....all i see is a blank black screen!!! hopefully, it's just youtube!
hope you enjoy!!! btw, thanks for the song lyrics...they are awesome! I have to admit, I do love Bruce, but i don't really appreciate mixing politics with music, even though i am not exactly a GWB fan myself...I just think it is one of those topics that generate bad feelings, when a music concert is a place that is supposed to generate good feelings! just mo.....
love,
joyce

Dear James:
no, I have a macbook pro, so am using "safari"....however, if you mean the youtube thing, I think i figured it out, and solved the problem, because it seems to be working fine now! I think I needed to download a more current version of Adobe flash player....I did that, and everything is working again! I guess that explains why i have been seeing this annoying bouncing adobe flash player icon for days now!!!! lol!!!! i hate those things, but i guess sometimes, they really ARE trying to tell you something useful after all!!!
love,
joyce
p.s., thanks for trying to help though!!! i do appreciate it, and you!!! :)

sorry about that! too bad....I love the song, and thought, at the very least, you might appreciate the video....guess not.

You Mean Hot For Teacher?

Yes, it was an "interesting" video to say the least. I just was never a fan of Van Halen, or that style of music.

Dear Hinch:
that's quite all right darlin'; just thought you MIGHT enjoy the video (even if it is sexist, as many of VH songs kinda are), but never fear......for I have sent you another, guaranteed to bring a smile to your face! check it out! hope this one is better!

The visuals in "Hot For Teacher" were certainly good!
Made me stand up and salute.

Help, I need to read things from people who writing intelligent comments! Some of the other threads have some of the most inane comments, it's ok to have an opinion but some of these comments are making me feel I am in The Twilight Zone!

From UK Jive "War Is Over" is worth checking out. Though not a Dave song.

I like the mono mix of "Mindless Child.....", the stereo one doesn't sound too good.
I do like the stereo mix of "This Man He Weeps Tonight" though.

Dear Eddie:
re: your post of various musicians/groups/songs:
1. The Lost Album: Lewis Taylor
couldn't find "the lost album by lewis taylor", but did find this one on page 2; is this the same Lewis Taylor? A jazz dude?:
http://youtu.be/NEkOjT8666c
(called: Lovin' You More)
I liked him o.k., but i am not really a "jazz" fan...he reminds me of Luther Vandrose a bit!
2. Mass Romantic: The New Pornagraphers:
They are pretty good! I enjoyed this.....listened to a few of the songs here! Nice!
3. Resolution: Andy Pratt:
was this an album, called "new resolutions"??? if so, I listened to 2 of these...pretty good!
(welcome to america, and grey, chick, and malda----is this who you meant??? i liked the second one a bit better, but they are both nice!)
4. Arrive Without Traveling: The Three O'Clock:
(great name, btw!)
listened to: "another world" and "her head's revolving": this was o.k., the first one kind of "poppy rock"...I liked it though....kinda catchy!, and the second, the same, but it was o.k....I think i liked the first one better...are they current, because they "sound" kinda 80's???
------------
Dave: (Ray's other half!) LOVE Dave; I think you probably know that! Very underrated guitarist, and a pretty good singer/songwriter too, I think (not quite as good as Ray, but still good in his own right!)
Love Gets You: The Chosen People: LOVE the vocals!! AWESOME!!! the lyrics are a little simplistic, but like the song, and the harmony is awesome! Really nice song; nice sound! Nice ending!
Run: UPC Code: nice song; again, nice vocals....has a good sound, and I like it!
Flowers In the Rain: Bug: a slower, quieter, more contemplative song....pretty...nice flow to it...romantic and sad, but I do like it a lot.
-----------------------
Dave with The Kinks (god save the Kinks!):
Trust Your Heart: Misfits: nice song with a different sound....kinda goes thru several interesting changes; nice guitar work....vocals o.k., but he yells a lot!
Strangers: Lola vs. the Powerman: really nice song...nice strong acoustic guitar, with echoey vocals...nice song with good lyrics. I like this a lot. ("strangers on this road we are on....we're not two, we are one"--nice!) Very nice drums as well!
Rats: Lola vs. the Powerman: a nice rocker! very nice electric guitar work (by Dave?)...like the overall sound, but hard to understand the lyrics at times.
Mindless Child of Motherhood (I assume you meant "Mindless", right??): The Kinks Kronicles:
another rocker! It's pretty good, but I don't care for it as much as the others; however, again, awesome guitar work! too noisy!
The Man He Weeps Tonight: The Kinks and Dave: reminds me of a cross between the Kinks and the Byrds! nice guitar work, but not wild about the drums, frankly...it's a nice song, but not a favorite.
Dear Margaret: UK Jive: heavy handed guitar work by Dave....sounds a bit like a heavy metal band! (again, drums sound kinda "predictable", if you get my meaning) not my favorite, but it's o.k.; however, I would say it was "ahead of it's time"...really awesome guitar parts also! (go, DAVE!)
Death of a Clown: Something Else: I really like this song a lot! great lyrics, and great sound! i have to say though, I am not overly fond of the "high" background vocals, esp. the "la, la, la, la's"......i would take them out, if it were me; i think the song would sound even better without them, but mo!
Love Me Till The Sun Shines: Something Else: I like this song...a mixup of sounds, which go well together, kind of a rocker with organ...nice vocals by Dave; drums are better!
Livin' on a Thin Line: Word of Mouth: I like this song a lot! nice beat, and liked it almost as soon as it started! very nice indeed! really really nice sound, with echo'y vocals...nice effect! good harmonies as well!

there you go, Eddie! probably more info than you (necessarily) wanted!
thanks for all the links!!!! Love DAVE!!!!! I agree; he is underrated...it's tough being Ray's little brother!!!!

love,
joyce

Dear Bernard:
re: War is Over: The Kinks
had not heard this song.....it's nice, and typical "Ray"! not necessarily a fav of mine, but still pretty nice....
thanks for sharing!

Dear Joyce
Guess we're all different, see things differently, I like the drums in This Man He Weeps Tonight - and the la la la las in Death of a Clown. They were done by Ray's (then) wife, incidently.

Dear Bernard:
yeah, I know it was his wife, Sasha, i believe???? I didn't mind the rest of the backing vocals, but for some reason, the "la la la la" part bothered me, and when i "imagined" in my mind how the song might sound without it, it sounded "improved" to me, but that's just me! As far as the drums; can't quite put my finger on what i was hearing, except for to say, it kinda sounded like a "basic" drum performance, that if you put anyone that could drum on a stool, and said "o.k., just follow along and keep the beat (or keep time), then that is what you'd get, so maybe kind of "predictable"?? is what i am hearing??? I don't know how to say what i mean....anyway, i did like the drums on other songs, especially one of the ones Eddie mentioned...don't remember which, but I noted it in my return post to him....
you are absolutely right though, Bernard, no problem, we do all hear different things, and have different tastes, which is fine! I can see where what i hear would be totally different than what you may hear, or someone else may hear......that's what makes music (and life) so interesting....it would be pretty boring if we all heard the same things!!!
thanks for the return post! Always a pleasure, Bernard, really!!!!!
love,
joyce
