Disbanded

I learn so many things watching the satellite music channels. We sometimes put it on the 70s or 80s channel just to play the “Name that tune” game and try and guess the artist, song and year. Everyone seems to imprint the songs from their 10-18 year old age era. It’s their anchor; what they fall back to for comfort.

I was really intrigued though by the little factoids that they put up while the song is playing. Most of them are just stupid. Like “they released blah blah album in 1975.” Who cares? Now if they provide some scandal ridden trivia or inane fact; terrific!

One of the factoids got me curious. They would say ‘such and such’ group disbanded in “such and such” year. How did they know that?

Oh…I forgot. All groups have to file an official disbanding form. I managed to get a copy…

Oh, and let’s not forget the form they need to fill out when they reunite as well…

Me likey but what happens when the bands are so drugged out they can't even speak let alone read? I mean it's fine when they disband cuz they have people to read for them but what happens when they reunite? Usually they're too broke for plane tickets let alone a "posy".

Hmmm... maybe I can offer my services with a pay me later form/contract.

I'm so impressed that the Van Halen boys are able to get along now. There is hope for the world.

Can't we just vote individual members off the island?

Do you have to sign in triplicate or can you just drool on it?

P.S. thanks for the link.

I think they always know when they reunite because it's closely connected to their bank accounts.. or lack of them.

I'd wager Van Halen has carpel tunnel at this point.
