saturday 9: don’t you care

Saturday 9: Don’t You Care? (1967)

1) What’s something that seems to fascinate everyone else, but you just don’t care about?
most reality shows, i think…like the housewives ones or the kardashians or duggars or whatever…even ones i used to watch like the bachelor or survivor or even dancing with the stars…i’m just not really interested in them any more. much too showy than “real.”

2) The lyrics refer to “the times we cried and laughed.” Which did you do more recently, cry or laugh?
cry. just got off Facebook, where i was reading tributes from family members to someone who just lost her battle with cancer. 😦

3) In the song, our hero seems surprised that his girlfriend doesn’t believe him. Are you more believing and trusting, or suspicious and skeptical?
sadly, i’m more suspicious and skeptical. people can’t tell me anything without me analyzing their every word and second-guessing what they *really* meant. yup, can’t enjoy anything any more after all these years.

4) This song is just over two minutes long, which seems short for a song but awful long when Sam is waiting for her chicken soup to heat in the microwave. What’s the last thing you heated in a microwave?
oh gosh. hmm, it’s been a while. i think it was a packet of frozen broccoli.

5) This week’s band, The Buckinghams, was one of the first acts to perform at Chicago’s premiere summer festival, The Taste of Chicago (formally ChicagoFest). Let’s think ahead: Have you made any plans for Summer 2016?
kinda. i hope i get there.

6) In 1967, when this song was popular, Rolling Stone magazine published its first issue. What magazines do you subscribe to? Do they arrive in the mail, or do you read them online?
i don’t subscribe to any any more. i used to subscribe to rolling stone, as well as like glamour and cosmo, but i canceled all those about 15 years ago.

7) Country star/American Idol judge Keith Urban was born in 1967. Are you watching the final season of American Idol?
wow, final season? about time. 😛 i’ve never liked american idol, even when it was crazy popular when it first debuted, and even when we had representatives from our state on it. i just didn’t like that show. add that to the list in question #1 haha

8) In 1967, the average cost of a movie ticket was $1.25. By 2015, it had risen $8.60. What’s the last movie you saw in a theater?
don’t remember the title–it was about space travel.

9) Random question: Sam’s taking everyone out to dinner and she’s buying. Would you prefer the steak or the lobster?
steak, please! thanks, sam!



  1. Those reality shows are always good the first season before the stars get greedy and big-headed. Then they just want to launch a book or business or something.

  2. I am sorry about the loss of your friend. Cancer sucks.

  3. Broccoli wins you the award for the healthiest microwave food of the week! Congratulations!
