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 - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
