I've heard from him and he's alright.

He merely has a lower asshole tolerance level than I do. :De_Bunk:

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Would've been a happy ending if he'd pulled her onto the tracks with him.

The two greatest bands of my youth.

The Stones and the Matys Brothers.

The Beatles were OK (though not as good as Herman's Hermits or The Kinks or Freddy and the Dreamers) and their quality fell way off after the original "Paul" died and they brought in "Sir Paul" (The Beatles answer to Joe DeRita). Do the Freddy!

That's kinda touching. I have mixed feelings about "idol groups" generally though.

I do as well.

The funny thing is years ago the fantastic Perfect Blue dealt with this including Super-Creepy Older Male Fan Who Thinks Girl is Singing to Him Character. Been an open secret. The US has been doing it as well, of course, but maybe not quite to the kitsch-level that J-Pop bands do.

Apparently Pat Benitar leapt over a desk and punched a promotor/manager who told her she needed to show more skin, tits, and the like. This is why she insisted wearing a body-suit. No skin but quite hot!

Britany Spears then Miley Cyrus were corporately created--as was Fergie. So, in a way, is Katie Perry who was and is a Hyper-Christian. "Make some boob references, Katie!"

Ironically, "Lady Gaga," a competent musician and not bad singer, could not get noticed until, like her paradigm Madonna, she bleached her hair and went for performance.

Still, I do not think many fans of Britany thought she was singing to them. J-Pop seems popular with mens whereas I do not think many men go to Britany concerts--even if they use to wank to her videos. Miley? The fear of diseases probably keeps everyone away.

Different attitudes and cultures.

Though a lot of mens thought Justin Bieber was singing to them.




Not . . . that. . . .

Nope.

If they thought Justin Bieber was singing to them, there is something very very wrong with that.

Euractiv wrote:Portugal breaks 100% renewables mark but remains isolated

Portugal produced more power from clean energy sources in March than it actually needed, marking the first time in the 21st century that renewables have topped 100% of its production. But a dearth of energy connections with the rest of Europe remains problematic.

Increasing renewable energy capacity is one of the key pillars of the Energy Union and in the month of March, Portugal was regularly able to meet 100% of its energy needs predominantly through hydro and wind power.

According to the Iberian nation’s transmission system operator, REN, renewable energy output reached 4,812GWh, surpassing Portugal’s total electricity needs for March, which only topped 4,647GWh.

That meant that the average for the month reached 103.6% from renewables, outstripping the previous contemporary record of 99.2%, set back in February 2014. In the last 40 years, Portugal has not managed to match March’s efforts.

In fact, during the same period last year, renewable energy was only able to meet 62% of Portugal’s electricity needs.
