I got 10 outta 16, what's that make me?
(Pretty sure the answer is a p bass with flats & tort. Could be carrots)
After 40+ years I finally got a 30+ year old P style bass. White(aged yellow), with black pickguard, and I put EMG GZRs in it, and strung it with D'Addario Chrome flats. I also remember aluminum ice trays with the release handle. I know what that makes me, old as dirt, will be 53 in July.
OK, I'm officially a Geezer
I already know I'm old, but I got 12 on the list. A handful - 5, 9 & 10 I think are American things? We didn't have a subway in my home city until I was around 12. My parents still have a functional seltzer bottle that I remember seeing when I was probably around age 6?
I get all of them except
14 (never seen Dr house call)
13 (but that's because my parents didn't really drink much, just a can of beer now and then)
9 (regional car dealer - for Dallasites the test would be Goss on Ross - Tradin' Hoss - We Tote the Note)
Interestingly enough I grew up in a city without a subway but when I moved to Boston in 06, the T was just starting to phase out tokens so I got to use subway tokens! Probably the last subway tokens used in the USA.
Have geezer EMG's in bass.
Sensing a pattern...
#9 wasn’t a regional car dealer. It was a NYC stereo/electronics store.
13 out of 16. Sheesh
Oh puh-leeeze... punk-a$$.
16 of 16 and could add a few... 63 in two weeks...
I loved the smell of the smoke from the cap guns, and "twanging" the curb feelers until my dad would yell out the window to knock it off.
Funny thing is, I shot my cap gun without safety glasses (something surely that would have to be worn today) rode a bike without a helmet (oh the horrors) and played "Cowboys and Indians", with neither the bad guy (would be seen as a racially faux pas these days)
It's a wonder I survived to grow to adulthood.
I was wondering where the smell of prune juice and Ben-Gay was coming from.
OK, I wouldn't have known about NYC electronics stores. Was CMC national or local?
Lol. I don’t know what CMC is.
I got 1, 4, 6, 15 and 16.
BUT, my childhood doctor had a clinic is a converted three-car garage in his back yard.
And I don't remember TV yest patterns. But my local radio station went off the air from 10 p.m. untim 6 a.m. It started every day with the national anthem. Wanna know how I know? It was what my dad woke up to every day. I look back on it fondly. But, at the time, the Star Spangled Banner blaring through the house at 6 a.m. was enough to make me wanna move to Russia.
Oh I remember TV test patterns, and right before they came on after sign off, a lot of stations signed off with this:
Got em all
And that's IN SANE !!
I grew up in L.A. (no subways until recently) and I never actually saw a doctor make a house call.
I remember the rest except for number eleven. What is that?
Out on the road today
I saw a deadhead sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice inside my head said:
"Don't look back, you can never look back"
