“ROUGH AND TUMBLE” by JTK.CA

“ROUGH AND TUMBLE” by http://JTK.CA

When the going gets tough,
Will the tough run away?
Will the weak ones stay?
It wouldn’t surprise me at all
If the weak ones save the day!

Only the tough times show
Who the tough ones are.
But beware,
The truly tough ones — each will wear a scar.

The tough from the weak;
The weak from the tough.
A label’s not enough.

I vote these the 2 best opera singers in history: LUCIANO PAVAROTTI & LEONTYNE PRICE


I vote these the 2 best opera singers in history: LUCIANO PAVAROTTI & LEONTYNE PRICE [Un ballo in máschera] https://youtu.be/S6Hdh0lSYrU ::: I saw Leontyne Price live in concert at Proctor's Theatre, Schenectady, NY, back in the 1980's. I even have her autographed picture from when I went backstage and shook her hand, telling her how phenomenal her performance was. I wonder if she noticed I was the dork in the audience who stood up and gave her a one-man standing ovation after one of her arias. My poor parents, were probably so embarrased. Dad was an opera aficionado and was probably thinking, "I should have taught this kid some opera etiquette." I remember standing outside, in the cool night air afterward, feeling the most transcendent feeling I've ever felt in my life. It's like I had just finished a tour of Heaven.

“KILLER RABBIT ON THE LOOSE!” by JTK.CA ::: Someone lost their plush bunny, Snowball, from The Secret Life of Pets (in the stairwell of my apartment building), so I propped him up in the corner, hoping he’ll find his way back home.

“ARNOLD” by JTK.CA

“ARNOLD” by http://JTK.CA

My nickname in high school was Arnold, but I don’t think it had anything to do with Arnold Schwarzenegger. I asked one of my classmates, who didn’t like me very much, why everyone was calling me Arnold. He responded, “Because you remind us of that little black kid on TV,” referring to Arnold on “Diff’rent Strokes,” played by Gary Coleman. It was the 1982-1983 school-year in grade 9. The next year, grade 10, I moved onto a “diff’rent” high school ;-) but I took the nickname Arnold with me and became really popular. One day, on the bus, a girl named Erin France asked me, “What, you’re name’s not Arnold? It’s Jonathan?” I thought that was hilarious.

From grade 3 through high school graduation, my genius brother Mike Ketchen and I were in the same grade. He caught up to me when he double-graded grades 2 & 3. I always felt kind of inferior to Mike, but I got over feeling inferior to him, in grade 10, when he became known as Arnold’s brother.

New song . . . or part of a song. (Fresh, not frozen. 2016-07-06.)

“AS YOU SEE ME NOW . . .” by http://JTK.CA

As you see me now,
I am a limited edition;
But that doesn’t mean
I won’t still haunt you when I’m gone.
