Actually I love the Talking Heads too, and thought Stop Making Sense was excellent. But I didn't get into them until later on.

sorry . . . JuST KiDDiNG - Aimee Mann is CooL by me Cool
maybe I would have been a bigger fan of those bands but I was stuck on this for about 3 years...

that is about as "secular" new-wave-electro-pop as I got during that time.
then I graduated to Adam Again "In a New World of Time".
if you want to see some of the music I was into around '84-'85 chk out my myspace - concert tickets.

Thanks, bereal! It's been quite the roller coaster ride. I don't want to ramble (bad habit of mine!), so I'll just say thanks for the prayers.

She's in Heaven now because of her faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior and that knowledge keeps me going against the flow.

As a side note, my mom-in-law has really taken to Derri's music, so I'll get her online and you can get her up to speed on *All Things Derri*. Wink

I am voluntarily choosing to be somewhat serious here. I realize that these have been quite a lot of fun to read, but I am taking a different road. Hope you don't mind.


Name:
Michael Nicolosi (Actually, George Michael Nicolosi, but I don't like the juxtaposition of George and Michael. So, I don't usually admit to it.)

Birthday:
July 6, 1962 (but I fake birthdays at my work so that I can get more presents. That's not a joke. I really do. Most have caught on, but there are still a few weak-minded who persist. It's a blast! I highly recommend it.)

Birthplace:
Houston, TX

Current Location:
Hot Springs Village, AR

Current Occupation:
Teacher

Dream Occupation:
Retired teacher playing drums and staying involved in the kiddos lives.

Eye Color:
Brown

Hair Color:
Brown

Height:
6 ft 1 in

Right Handed or Left Handed:
Right (it's painful to watch me throw a ball with my left hand)

Your Heritage:
I don't know. My dad split when I was just a kid. I know his parents came from Italy, but that's about it.

Your Biggest Weakness:
My wife's smile. I am helpless when she flashes it. This year marks her 25th year of smiling at me. Woo-hoo!!!

Your Fears:
Spiders

The Perfect Pizza:
Doesn't exist

Goal You Would Like To Achieve This Year:
To be a successful teacher for the kiddos. I am working very hard to inspire.

Your Most Overused Phrase or word:
crap Music - anything EVER called crap could be removed and I would be just fine with that.

Morning person or Night Owl:
Mostly morning, but I can do both.

Your Best Physical Feature:
Doesn't exist

Your Most Missed Memory:
Major Matt Mason!!! Those toys ROCKED!!! I had literally every single item sold. They were stolen from our house when I was still a kid. I miss them terribly.

Pepsi or Coke:
I don't do soda

Favorite Fast Food:
I don't do fast food

Can You Cook:
Does a bear do its business in the woods?! Of course! I love to cook. I made Thai Shrimp Tom Yum Soup and fresh Spring Rolls just last night. They were amazing!

Chocolate or Vanilla:
Actually, I mix the two

Cappuccino or Coffee:
Both! And often!

Three Stooges, Abbot and Costello or the Marx Brothers:
Marx Brothers and Jerry Lewis. Who can resist Minnie's boys? I also like the Stooges. I could never get into Bud and Lou. It seemed to me the same schtick over and over again.

Number of hours that you normally watch TV in a single day:
I don't watch TV. I don't have TV and I will never have it. I saw nothing but sex, drugs, violence, and more sex - and that was just the commercials!!! It was sick. My young son was even offended. We immediately pulled it out of the house and have never looked back. That was quite a few years ago. I buy DVD's. That's it.

Favorite type of movie (Drama/comedy/action/documentary/etc):
Comedy!!! and documentary....and action.....and drama......and music......oh well. I like movies!

Letterman or Leno:
neither. don't do TV

Do you Smoke:
of course not!

Do you Sing:
of course not! I'm a drummer!

Do you Dance:
of course not! I'm a drummer!

Most unusual talent:
I can cold read just about anything and make it real. I'm not sure if that means I have the ability to be a great liar, or if it means I can act. Kinda scary when you think about it.

You like to regularly challenge yourself by:
pushing myself to learn something new. I'm always reaching out to learn.

Do you get Motion Sickness:
Not really. There was one time in the service when we were taking blue water over the flying bridge (about 100 ft above the waterline) off the coast of Greenland and I got a bit sick, but that's about it.

Are you a Health Freak:
Health - yes, Freak - absolutely!

Do/did you get along with your Parents:
My mom - yes. My dad split so I don't talk to him. I don't have a clue where he is.

Do you like Thunderstorms:
Love them. But I prefer snowstorms. There's something magical that happens when it snows. It can cover a junk yard and be beautiful. I lived in Buffalo and Sault Ste. Marie, so I have definately been around snow. I loved it and I miss it.

Do you play an Instrument:
Drums - since I was about 3 years old. If you care, my latest CD is available on iTunes and CD Baby. I was with a group called REV. The CD is called "nothing to see here". It was an interesting time.

Have you ever Stolen Anything:
Lots. I was in a gang when I was much younger. I stole lots of stuff. That was another life. That person is dead now and I am in GOD's family! So, I guess the answer would be "no". I have not stolen.

Have You Ever been Beaten up:
of course, and I've beaten others up. Wait. That's not right. I'm not that guy anymore. This is all so confusing.

What do you want to be when you Grow Up:
a kid again (ask my wife and she will say that I will never grow up)

What country would you most like to Visit:
a FREE America that finally lacks the influence of the radical left California based regime (wow, I can't believe I'm actually that politically minded! That just sort of flew out. Oh well. I guess you never really know yourself.)

Number of CDs I own:
well over 5000 (well over half of them are secular and I don't listen to them anymore. I will more than likely throw them away. This has been a rather recent development in my growth. GOD is always working, polishing, and refining who we are. Praise HIM for never quiting on us....no matter how imperfect we are.)

Number of Piercings:
3 (in my ears from a previous life)

Number of Tattoos:
one very sweet tatoo hidden under my sleeve on my right arm of a wooden cross, a crown of thorns, and my favorite verse - "HE alone is my rock and my salvation. HE is my fortress. I will never be shaken."

Number of Message Board Alliases:
I'm not cool enough to have an alias. I use my real name. How dweeby is that?!

The Greatest Rock Band in History Is:
Doesn't Exist!

The Album I Wore Out Growing Up Was:
ALL of The Beatles and The Kinks LP's. (I even had the imports and bootlegs. I was/am a bit anal about music.) I have since been delivered from secular music, though. I don't listen to any of them, now. I only listen to music that makes GOD smile.
