A Shoegasm and Friday Follower #10


Joel  has an brilliant blog called I Was Born Very Young and I was thrilled to fucking bits when he agreed to be my Friday Follower #10!

Plonkers, Presenting Joel Momberg...

Ever think about the impossible dreams and goals you had when you were just a kid?

You know ... those great, unreachable goals that you could never hope to accomplish ... I'm not talking about being an astronaut or explorer or even the President of the United States.

Those might come true.

I'm talking about the ones that you can only dream about. l'll give you some examples of mine ... and why I haven't really grown up yet.

Goal 1: To marry Ann-Margret

Sure she's 100 years old now ... but when I was 13, she was the sexiest actress alive. She's still pretty hot by the way. Back then, she was really hot.

That scene in Bye Bye Birdie when wears that sweater is still the one I remember today. Man ... it was big enough for two and I wanted to be in that sweater with her.

I sent her the only fan letter I ever wrote to anyone. It was filled with lies. I said that I was 21, I had broken up with a girl that looked just like her, I was a doctor (I think) ... maybe I said a surgeon, I asked her if she would go out with me.

She sent me an autographed picture that I treasured.

In my mind it was the only one she ever signed.

Obviously I never got my original wish. But today, I count this as a win ... my wife Debbie not only resembles her ... she's much better looking. And she says I remind her of Elvis (yes ... the fat old Elvis).

Goal 2: To be a professional baseball player

No one knows about this ... and those who know me best will be surprised. My kids have no idea I ever wanted to do this. They are all great athletes who played a variety of sports well.

I played nothing well.

That's why this is in the impossible dream category for me. I was the last to be picked, the one that always played left field DEEP (mainly because at 8 years old, the only balls that came my way were rolling slowly when the shortstop missed them). I had severe asthma and carried an inhaler with me.

Okay, sure ... we all love the stories of overcoming odds and becoming a champion. The only way this was ever going to come true was for me to wake up one morning in a new body.

I finally compromised. I got season tickets to the TB Rays.

Goal 3: To be Jerry Lee Lewis

Notice I said to BE Jerry Lee. He was my earliest idol. Lewis was the bad boy of rock and roll ... his heavy bass rhythm and his staccato treble chords were incredible. I loved the way he rolled up and down the keys, pounded them with his heel, flipped his hair back and hit those high notes when he sang.

The closest I got to being him ... was trying to play like him.

So today when I play the piano ... if you squint your eyes, cover your ears and go into another room ... you would swear I AM Jerry Lee Lewis.

Goal 4: To never grow up
This one I DID achieve.

Thanks Joel!

Very nice post - I think out of all of those goals at least Joel chose the BEST one to follow through on! Nice guest post! W.C.C.

Joshua said...

At least he didn't say Jerry Lee Lewis because he had a crush on his cousin.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Wow, it must be early. I didn't realize that was Joel talking about breaking up with a girlfriend and not Gillian (especially since she's married to a guy). I think I need to go back to bed.

Nice shoes. Too bad I can't walk in heels. I'm super clumsy. ;)

Great Job Joel...

Jildo...Fuck You!!

Joel's great, already following!

I would have showed Ann Margret my "O Face" back then, (I was probably not even a tadpole when she was in her prime) and can say with certainty that I would even now. (I'm not picky) SHWWIIIING!!!!!!

Good post Joel, on my way over.

Since I myself took a have a peek at them earlier last year, I have been a fan. The sleek exterior usually covered in the patent leather or Italian leather style finish along using the ankle cut sets them off so perfectly inside my eyes. My, my, feel remorse for your heart with the woman who witnesseth your boy in these. Slim is going to be the sweet nothings I whispereth in her ear, my shoes will perform talking. Equipped in countless, beautiful, unique colorways, Supra sneakers are inside my opinion top notch bits of footwear.

Now someone [url=]custom iphone case[/url]
like me comes with an image to uphold when I actually do step out. I am unable to be in the eye with the public domain with tennis shoes that have zero consistency in color and magnificence design. Not I. The sophistication of the Supras (and all Supras with the matter) is tremendous. As soon as your shoes are sophisticated, you look sophisticated....It's a proven fact. Well not really.

Also what adds [url=]adidas porsche design[/url]
to those shoes are their origin, designed for your professional skateboarder Terry Kennedy (Compton ass Terry or TK). It took Terry Kennedy about thirty seconds to learn skateboarding, a couple months to obtain sponsored, and just several years to travel pro. Growing up inside streets of Long Beach and skating with pros from Baker skateboards definitely helped, yet it's undeniable-TK's got what we should call talent. The TK Society Supra sneakers totally embody what Terry Kennedy will be as an athlete.

Now as well as every great [url=]adidas by jeremy scott[/url]
needless to say comes a really GREAT bootlegging wave. It is very important that you find these sneakers within their correct form-authentic. I took the time correctly to purchase them from your particular store online (read on for url), and inside a week I had exactly a few things i expected. I have noticed a great deal of fakes and variants across ebay, so I prefer to stay far from there for that most part.

The Supra TK Society are monumental [url=]supra tk society[/url]
. They're unique design is captivating, and they're material is flawless. If you're looking for any legit set of skate sneakers that are far a many more than your average, visit get your TK's as soon as you can.

That's all for me.
