Oh, don't apologize, Wayne. I like learning things like that. After all, you are a teacher!

My problem with my name in school was convincing some teachers, who refused to use nicknames, that my name is really Jimmy, not James. Roll Eyes

My friend and I listened to Outdoor Elvis a number of times sitting out at the Christmas tree farm. Cool

Is "relief teaching" teaching a class while the regular teacher is absent? It has a nice ring to it compared to "substitute teaching."

Love to hear your December 1989 memory, Jimmy. I have one too, but you first!


The college I went to in the '80s was still on the quarter system. It also started Fall quarter early enough that we were finished by Thanksgiving and came back in January. I was supposed to finish up Spring '89, but due to a mix-up by my advisor, I had to go an extra quarter, Fall '89. So I got my first off-campus apartment, hoping I could find a job after the quarter ended.

I had a good friend that I frequently did things with. She didn't even seem to mind when I would hang around her dorm room/on-campus apartment. It seems strange now, thinking how popular she was with all the guys--especially the Christian guys, who all knew they had met God's intended for them. But she and I just did stuff as friends.

As the quarter came to an end, I managed to find a stop-gap job at a Christmas tree farm owned by a member of my church. My friend, who is from Maryland, told me that she needed to stay in Georgia over the break for something having to do with financial aid. I talked to my employer, and my friend was hired. She was able to stay in her apartment on campus.

When the break came, everybody we knew cleared out from college. It was basically just the two of us in town. We sat in the cold in a field of 5-8 ft. trees during the weekdays and found stuff to do together most of the rest of the time. It was like a moment out of time, intensely spent with one of my favorite people in the world.

Christmas came. I didn't find a job and had to move. Life happened and we lost touch. But in my memory there is still this moment suspended in time.

Fast forward almost 30 years and it’s my favorite DA album. Would love it on vinyl.

That's quite a story, mindgasket. Glad you eventually came around. I guess DA changed their musical style so much over the years that it depended to a significant extent when someone encountered them. I encountered Doppelganger just when I was starting to long for something more, plus we had just read T.S. Eliot's "The Hollow Men" in English class, and was immediately hooked. If it had been one of the early albums I heard that same year instead, I probably would have bounced off.

I wanted a career in music, but sometimes I think it was a good thing I didn't get that. I know more than a few people who don't really seem to like music anymore because of the career drama that comes with making a living in an art.

This was a bit of a trip down memory lane. I had forgotten that Little Red Riding Hood got the M8 "treatment" as well. Nice to have the recent reissue instead.

We’ve kind of been going in order for the reissues - although a couple were done out of sequence.

Thanks for the update, Eric. I'm glad to have been wrong.
