Thank u all for the reports. I wish I would have been there (if only to listen to "I want you", I like this song :oops: ).

Whatever did you oldtimers from ecfans do to generate questions such as "You're not from this site, are you ? " :?:

What about So Like Candy ? It is a love song, desperate love but love. And I believe, sincere. I like this song particulary because the music is as good as the lyrics, the 2 are in harmony and the chorus has a striking melody that really suits the words. Agree that something out of North would belon...

I understand, it is hard not to get mad. This happened to me once, when my bank system automatically refused a huge Amex invoice. It had been loaded with airlines and hotel bills more than usual, and those expenses had not been reimbursed. Although the bank apologised, I hated the idea of having a r...

Sorry for you, this is a pity indeed. Apparently he was busy. But VG, did you ask him to drop by ? You invited fans... In case he got word of the meeting he may have thought he had no business there. :? :lol: Anyway, he said somewhere that he will be nice to people, give autographs and stuff, but yo...

Talking about tragic decline... I just heard that Keith Richards fell off from a coconut tree. I suppose you guys know that already. Don't tell me you didn't laugh ! :lol: Sure I am sorry for him, really. But certain things are just too funny. He was lucky not to get hit by a falling coconut instead...

:lol: From that angle I had a good time, watching how guys commit a fault, willful or not, and then thrust their arms up in the air like they don't know what happened. My footie sis told me once an Italian was caught at this, doing a great job of looking innocent, but he had a piece of T shirt in on...

Hey, do you think the poor fellow would have done what he did if he had been able to keep control ?! Of course not, he just ruined everything for himself, this will come back to haunt him for the rest of his life. Temporary insanity, one might plead.

Thank you So Lack, I agree with your views.

And I have found another nickname for Ronaldo : "Diver" :D !
(I am not sure, but suspect "Cronaldo" to be kinda gross).

Point is, Italy didn't win... Zidane has all my compassion, and at least his strike was in full view and not wicked. :roll: (The NY times -or whoever it was- may be sorry to have written that Zidane is the coolest captain on earth... Cool yes, but a darn stronghead.) Anyway I am happy. Against all o...

Scielle, I understand Leonard Cohen is going to read something at the Paul Simon tribute tonight, maybe you are going. This is scoop, apparently. EC will also be there. Can't figure why EC kills himself performing for hours. Perhaps his body needs it, or he's got a Wonder battery inside, cant think ...

I turned on TSF a few minutes ago and recognised a voice I like, Elvis was on. Very good song ("on your way down" ?), great music. The speaker said from Montreal that he was a the EC - AT concert last night , 2 hours and 45 mn, "and it was absolutely marvellous" :shock: I registe...

You guys had the opportunity to hire the man who is presently coaching Portugal, why didn't you seize it ? Agree with you about Ronaldo, VG. From what I saw, he spent a lot of time looking for English faults to get them punished, instead of focussing on the goal. I am afraid he is up for a serious i...

I suspect that a lot of French like Ribery because he is not impressive ("little Ribery"), doesn't look like a winner, but did achieve quite a lot. It may also be because he is white (for a change!). Me I am not a fan because I have some doubts, for instance about his capacity to keep an h...

Don't cry guys, you didn't loose. Thumb down to Ronaldo !!! He acted below everything (even though the English player he got expelled did something dirty). The French telly, who'd been earlier for Portugal, is not yet over such lack of class. I'll revert, Otis, but not with an essay (I'm not applyin...
