Welcome back, y'all! I'm a little early - hey, stranger things have happened - but that's only because I'm between making corrections on Jack's horrible writing prompt (sorry, but the written word is not his forte) and grading Chloë's and Sophia's math tests. So let's go, shall we?
Saturday 9: Turn Me Loose (1959)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
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.
3) His record label paid Fabian $30 a 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?
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?
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?
6) In 1973, in an attempt to jump-start 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.
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?
Surprisingly, yes, I do. Does that negate my answer to Question #8? Although we don't have TV service right now, because for the life of me I can't find a provider within the entire state of Idaho that doesn't consist of DirecTV. Freakin' DirecTV can bite my arse.
On that note, I have more papers to grade, so off I go... TTFN!
