At 11:30 at night, there is probably no more
exciting place in the world than Times Square.

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

     Oh, looky. It's another Scorpions song! And it's all about New Yawk City!! Now that's a win-win! 

BONUS - - The Zoo - Scorpions, Live


"The Zoo" is a song by the German heavy metal band Scorpions, written by band members Rudolf Schenker (guitar) and Klaus Meine (vocals). It first appeared on the band's 1980 album Animal Magnetism.The song has been featured on a few of Scorpions "Best-Of" compilations, including Deadly Sting: The Mercury Years, Bad for Good: The Very Best of Scorpions, the box set Box of Scorpions and a re-recorded version for the Comeblack album. The song was released as a single in 1980 but had limited chart success, peaking at #75 in the UK.

Although the song performed poorly on the charts, it is a critically acclaimed heavy metal song. One critic notes "The Zoo" is both "ominously slow and melodically accessible," with a key element being the "Berlin burlesque vocal melody."[1] Schenker wrote much of the song's music during the band's first tour of the United States in 1979. When Meine first heard Schenker's riff, it reminded him of the band's earlier visit to a street in New York City, which was humorously called a "zoo."[1] Meine later composed the song's lyrics, which contain references to city streets - most notably, New York's 42nd Street.

Hi, TYPHOON Conduit:

Class of 1957 will hold a Class Reunion later this year. The committee asked me to try to locate few “Missing Typhoon” and it seemed only appropriate to share sad news for your website:
David Eugene Lundquist, born 21 November 1938, passed away 14 February 2005 at 3505 Buckboard Lane, Middle River, MD 21220.

Joseph Madagan

   Well, Major Madagan! It's always good to hear from you, even when the news is less than joyous!

   Thank you so much for this information! I was unable to find an actual obituary for David, but I added him to the In Memoriam page for your class.

   Send me the details of your reunion as they develop, and I'll post them in all the usual places. Y'all have fun!

From June Veneris Collie (Hampton HS - '62) of VA - 03/04/17 - "Times-Herald Interview":

  Thanks, Carol, for your quick posting of our grandfather/father’s business picture.

I found this old Times-Herald article from 1959 about our family and how the business started. Please include it on the same Nick Veneris Plumbing Heating Roofing page in Our Old Stomping Grounds.

You are doing an incredible job of preserving history!

   WOWZERONI! Thanks so much, June! This treasure is arguably even more exciting than the image we posted yesterday! While I was there, I "gussied-up" the page a bit.

From June Veneris Collie (Hampton HS - '62) of VA - 03/04/17 - "Surprise Find":

  Carol, in the same Times-Hearld paper dated Friday, Oct. 23, 1959, I saw this article with pictures about NNHS / WHS Pep Rallies. Sorry the resolution of the pictures are not the best. The paper is pretty faded, but I think you can make out the students. What memories!

   WOWZERONI! Thanks again, June! I've added these golden oldies to our Odds and Ends page!

"Well, what seems to be the problem?" asked the clock repair man.

"It's my grandfather clock. It used to go tic toc, tic toc, tic toc. Now, it just goes tic, tic, tic, tic, tic," replied the young lady.

"Hmmm, I think I can fix this," he said. He opened the door on the clock, looked at it, and then said to the lady, "Don't worry, we have ways of making it toc!"

The Zoo

Written by Rudolf Schenker (b. 31 Aug 1948) and Klaus Meine (b. 25 May 1948)

Recorded by Scorpions, 1979

The job is done, I go out
Another boring day
I leave it all behind me now
So many worlds away

I meet my girl, she's dressed to kill
And all we're going to do
Is walk around to catch the thrill
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

Enjoy the zoo
And walk down 42nd Street
You want to be excited too
And you will feel the heat

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo
