I'm learning a lot from this challenge...had to Google Martha after listening to the video....was so not loving the outfits...hard to believe I had some jumpsuits in my closet at the time also...ick.

Well, I didn't have any candies. You work with what you've got.
nonamedufus said…
Hey, it was the 80s.
Coco said…
You did it! Nice idea without gaining weight! :)
Barb Paige said…
good idea!
Laughing Mom said…
I was expecting more candy shots and instead get a view of Martha's muffins! You should be ashamed, duf!
mike said…
Ah great song!
nonamedufus said…
No, as a matter of fact I'll lose weight dancing!
nonamedufus said…
Different, right?
nonamedufus said…
Both women in this group were named Martha.
nonamedufus said…
A blast from the past.
Boom Boom Larew said…
Are there m&m's in those Muffins? Ask Martha for me.
nonamedufus said…
I'll get right on it.

kick-ass tune! Nice!
Cheryl said…
Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet! I love it when you pull out one of your albums from you vast collection of vinyl to share during this challenge. Never heard of them but I love that they were recorded by Metro Music. So many Ms to gush over in this photo.
nonamedufus said…
A Canadian new wave band from the 80s.
nonamedufus said…
Oh I have a vast collection. But I could kick myself because in the 80s I threw out al my 45s from the 60s and 70s. Beach Boys, Beatles, Turtles, Troggs, Gary Lewis and the Playboys, etc.
meleahrebeccah said…
Thanks for sharing, because I had never heard of them before.
nonamedufus said…
Well, when I had no candies I knew exactly where to go. My eclectic record collection.
Cheryl said…
I hear ya. I had a vast LP collection but got rid of 90% of it years ago. Most of the time, I'm fine with that but sometimes I do miss it.


I wasn't raised with music and I've found I concentrate better without it. The only place I have to have music is in the car. Sadly carmakers have yet to create a stereo system that includes a turntable.
ladyV said…
never heard of them, but you are introducing me to new bands and songs. i do like that they are women.
mike said…
Yep, and the opening riff still rocks.
nonamedufus said…
They were pretty much a one hit wonder.
nonamedufus said…
I listen to music all day long, while I read, on the computer, driving, etc.
ladyV said…
That's what I want to be. One hit, collect my money and then disappear

It's great, isn't it.
Nicky said…
Cool. Ear candy. I haven't heard that song in years! Nice one, Dufus.
nonamedufus said…
Well, they've continued to play but never had a hit on this scale again.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Nicky. Thanks, Nicky. (echo, get it?)
MikeWJ said…
What a clever boy you are. I've never even heard of this group.
Martha and the Muffins! My favorite band! (OK I have no idea who they are) but what a great idea!
Ziva said…
Thank god, if I see one more photo of candy, I'm going to have to go out and buy some M&Ms. Martha and the Muffins, eh? Sounds a little bit like the title of an adult film, don't you think?
nonamedufus said…
Well now you have.
nonamedufus said…
Martha and the Muffins = M&M!
nonamedufus said…
...in the free world.
nonamedufus said…
Now that you mention it...

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
