From my British point of view at the time they were a PR stunt. That they actually produced half decent songs was a bonus.

Well it was viewed as a direct assault on the British pop world that was dominating the world at the time.

You Brits, it's always about you, innit?

In the '60's it definitely was. Finally turning back American influence on our society and enjoying ourselves.

The first album I ever owned was Meet the Monkees, I thought they were the greatest band ever. I was nine and also liked to make fart noises in public by cupping my hand in an armpit.

My first records were Puff the Magic Dragon, age about 5, it was a 45, and [i]The Beatles[/i], the one with I Want to Hold Your Hand. All before The Monkees, which I also had, and about the same time the 45 of Me and Bobby McGee. I still like them all, a lot. The farting thing, that just wasn't me, not back then, I only started that fairly recently.

Cant remember my first record as I bought so many then. I was 12/13 and into music big way and having my own income (I started work at 10 years totally illegal) I spent a lot on records. Standard Saturday morning was down to the record shop to listen to all the latest records.

The records I'm talking about were bought by my parents obviously, I wasn't working in the cotton fields at 5 or so when I had the first two. What the hell were you working at 10 for? That's awfully damn young. Did it involve anything loud? That might be the cause or some of the cause for your hearing issues. 10 was about my age when both The Monkees and Joplin records came out.

I loved The Monkees and Sha Na Na tv programs.
I can't remember for sure what my very first album was. Perhaps Saturday, Saturday Night by Zoom. :lol:

Had my first paper round at 10. A small one and just filling in. It works totally different as in America I believe. No it was very quiet first thing in the morning in a very residential area. I started seriously at 12 and did two rounds every morning. There were no other real jobs available back then for kids.

I know what the cause of my tinnitus is thanks.

I had a paper route at age 12. My customers were really cheap bastards man. It was a lot of pedaling for like, $1.78 a day.

I think the American system was more like the Dutch one where you worked for one newspaper? We worked from a newsagents where you delivered all the different news papers and magazines. It gave you plenty to read in the days long before internet was ever dreamed of. 8-) We just walked and we had to deliver into the letterbox. My Sunday paper job was a different kettle of fish altogether. I earned in total about 10 pound a week which in those days was an adult wage.

At xmas I could turn as much as 20 pound. I kept it all as my parents never found out how much I actually earned. I was smoking 40 of these things a day:

Which were not cheap.

I worked for a newspaper company, probably the actual paper, but I don't remember. I went to a garage in the morning where they gave me the stack of papers to deliver. They didn't pay me any money, my income was the tips. Most people didn't give one. :nono:
I didn't have to use a bike, but it made it a lot faster so I did.

Fucking slacker I was thinning acres of beets on the farm when I was five or six and was driving the tractor plowing and towing the cutter and baler through the hay fields by 12.

He is (was) cute and a passable singer.


Do you think he was cute? I think he's becoming more attractive and might qualify as cute at 40. Not sure. His lips are enormous. I've had lip injections and couldn't compete.

He's also growing into his voice and does not sound bad live, which is more than a lot of performing musicians can say. His music is, overwhelmingly, just terrible but I don't consider the Bieb talentless. Insufferable dickbrain? Probably. He's an OK little singer though and his recent stuff is really intelligently composed such that it appeals to a wider audience than anything he did before. It isn't great but it's slick. Not, "What Do You Mean?" but the other two. I just wish he pronounced "sorry" like a Canadian in the song, "Sorry".

My mom said she wanted to bitchsap him when he came on the radio in the car the other day though. He's yet to win her over.
