Get Down Tonight

1) Tonight, KC has three things on his "to-do" list: do a little dance, make a little love and get down. Tell us three things you'd like to accomplish this weekend. finish the never-ending book group book, nap, and scrub the tub

2) This week's song is considered emblematic of disco, a genre that had as many detractors as fans. Is there a kind of music you simply cannot stand? I cannot stand death metal or screamo

3) Before becoming a musician, KC, aka Harry Casey, worked in a record store. In those days, record stores were very popular. Peaches, Coconuts, Sam Goody and Tower Records are four store chains that once dotted the landscape but now are gone. Today, if you wanted to purchase a CD, where would you turn? I would probably get it from Amazon or Barnes & Noble

4) One of his duties at the record store was unloading the big corrugated shippers filled with LPs. What's the heaviest thing you've lifted lately? I am of the "one trip" grocery carrying club--so yesterday's groceries

5) KC is proud that he's lived his entire life in Miami-Dade County. Do you expect to change your address in the next year or so? I do not

6) In 1975, the year this song was popular, former Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa disappeared, never to be seen again. Many theories flourish about what may have happened to him. Is there a famous criminal case that has a hold on your attention? hmmm, nothing comes to mind

7) Jaws was the most popular movie of 1975. Are you afraid of sharks?
more of a healthy respect for them

8) Actress Angelina Jolie was born in 1975. People magazine once named her "most beautiful." Who is the most beautiful woman you can think of? Audrey Hepburn came to mind--there was something so elegant about her

9) Random question: A wizard offers you a choice -- would you like your life to stay as it is right now (in terms of your health, your career, your relationships and your finances) for the next 5 years, or would you like to take a chance that the future will be brighter? I'll take a chance

I think it's Audrey's neck that sets her apart. She was such a swan.

I would have to use audible if I ever joined another book group.

Yes to taking a chance. And UGH I forgot about Death Metal, but still hate rap so that makes it two genres. I used to be in the "one trip" carrying club. Those bags were heavy!

My book club is reading The Ninth Hour by Alice McDermott and I swear it is the most depressing thing ever. I am not sure I will finish it. Just once I wish we'd read something that wasn't so "deep" and dark. Gah.

I think it was those "never ending" book choices that finally put an end to the book group I was in on Facebook.
Audrey was so elegant all the time. My son's date for the senior prom looked so much like her...down to the hairstyle and choice of gown. She was stunning.

I never even heard about death metal or screamo, that shows you how old fashion I am.
