Excellent flashback to the glory days. However, all Simple Minds fans are cringing at being confused with Simply Red (CoolCrowd approved sappy pop).Sprocket - Matt said:(Fade out on Judd Nelson walking across the football field into the setting sun)

I knew it was "SIMPLE" Something... Close... damn, now I'll actually have another bit of useless info to tag the previous info as incorrect, and a third bit of info to give the proper band name next time...

I have a buddy who remembers everything about old TV shows, dead presidents, trivia answers etc and such... once when we were having a light argument I told him he's full of useless infomation... I've realized later it really hurt him... kinda broke him... I think he was really proud of being able to remember all the things but my comment sort of stuck him in a wrong way that deflated him badly somehow...since then I really regretted having made the comment that day...
I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction

When I'm drivin' in my car, and the man come on the radio
He's tellin' me more and more about some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination
I sometimes feel like this song here...
btw thanks morrison... for reminding me to take my medicine... I totally forgot about it today....
