Turn Me Loose

1) In this song, Fabian sings he has change in his pocket. Every evening, Sam puts her change in the piggy bank on her kitchen counter. Do you do anything special with your coins? Or do they just jingle/jangle in your wallet or pocket until you spend them? I segregate my quarters for laundry, otherwise, I keep coins in my wallet until there's a fundraiser at school then I clean it out

2) Fabian got his start because his neighbor in Philadelphia owned a record label and thought 14-year-old Fabian had the looks to be a teen idol. Tell us about a time recently when you were in the right place at the right time. the person ahead of me bought my iced coffee!

3) His record label paid Fabian $30 week to study singing after school. What jobs/chores did you have when you were in high school? Did they prepare you for your eventual career? I was a nanny and I suppose it trained me for being a teacher

4) In 1959 he appeared on the cover of now-defunct magazines like Teen Screen and Dig. Who and what did you read about when you were a teenager? I loved Teen magazine and Seventeen one was geared to inspiring girls the other was fashion and trends

5) In the 1960s he moved from singing to acting. In 1965 he appeared in Ten Little Indians, a screen adaptation of an Agatha Christie mystery. Have you ever read an Agatha Christie book? I love Agatha Christie!

6) In 1973, in an attempt to jumpstart his career, he appeared nude in Playgirl magazine. By the time it hit the newsstands, he regretted it. Tell us about a time you were very embarrassed. how much time do we have? I doof up regularly...

7) In 1959, when this song was popular, most women wore nylons on a daily basis and the average price per pair was $1. What socks or leg wear -- if any -- do you have on right now? my feet are naked *gasp*

8) 1959 also saw the premiere of The Twilight Zone on CBS. 58 years later, you can still see the show in reruns. Are you a fan? this show scared the bejeepers out of me! The music still makes me shiver!

9) Random Question: While we're talking about TV ... Sam finds it disturbing that her brother claims he's seen every episode of Bad Blood, a show devoted to family members who have murdered their relatives. Do you enjoy "true crime" reality shows? I don't think I've watched a true crime reality show

I love Agatha Christie, too. I've read all her writings and seen all of the film adaptations of her mysteries, the ones with Joan Hickson anyway. I didn't care for the newer ones mostly because I was so used to the quiet, mousy Joan Hickson portrayal.

I've seen one of two true crime shows, and that was ENOUGH already. lol
Yes, nekkid feet rule! lol

That was nice someone paid for your coffee. They were talking about this the other day on KLOVE and somewhere someone paid for the person behind him and said to pay it forward someday and it continued on and on for 2 hours!

Yessss! to naked tootsies! It's good to be able to wiggle them. :)

Quarters for laundry. I give them an embarrassing amount of thought. I should just make it standard practice to go to the bank and buy a roll each month and be done with it!

A new film version of Murder on the Orient Express will be out in a few weeks. Who killed Johnny Depp (Ratchet)? The star/director promises surprises. I think it's risky to mess with a story so many of us know so well.
