What do you think?

(That Dutch government...you don't hear about them until they start fightin' with teenage girls...)

Dan Schwent (akagunslinger) Not only should she not be allowed to try to sail around the world, she should also send her parents to a psychiatrist for thinking it's a good idea. She's 13!


message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

13 year olds definitely should not be allowed to do this. I admire the parents faith in their daughter, but sometimes you have to be the parents and say no.

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments the dad in me says no but the dad in me also admits there were times when my kids were 13 that i would have gladly put them on a long boat trip somewhere

Félix (habitseven) Not all 13 year-olds are the same, though, in terms of maturity.

Being mature for her age would be a good justification for taking her to an R-Rated movie, not letting her circumnavigate the globe.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments When I was thirteen all I wanted to do was kiss Kirsten. I did, eventually, in a cemetery. I guess I also wanted to pass eighth grade and keep playing baseball.

Sarah | 13815 comments When I was thirteen, I started a band called "Hellbound Train". We had one song, also called "Hellbound Train". Our band consisted of three keyboards, one drum machine, and me on electric guitar.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments What were the lyrics to Hellbound Train?

I sang in a band at thirteen, too. We did Van Halen covers. Oh, we also did Judas Priest's "Living After Midnight".


message 10: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments at thirteen i plugged my record player (with a 1/4" headphone jack) into my Vox guitar amp and played Working Man by RUSH at unbelievable volumes while i constantly re-stacked my amazing beer can collection

Félix (habitseven) I sailed around the world when I was 13. No ... I really didn't. Well ... I cruised around the world on the Internet when I was 13. No ... didn't do that either. Okay ... I discovered Playboy Magazine when I was 13. Yup.


message 13: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments RA-
The chorus, obviously, was "I'm on a hellbound train!"
Other than that, I only remember the following line:
"We've set the world on fire with our music and our songs."
To my now-trained eye, that line appears to be both redundant and presumptive.

Please don't use this against me.


message 14: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) I love it, SP.


message 15: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments That rocks, Sarah...Larry could have listened to that song while he was perusing adult magazines.


message 16: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments was this predominately a techno-sounding band?

And he Probably did....No he didn't


message 18: by Félix (last edited Aug 26, 2009 08:56AM) (new)

Félix (habitseven) That song, much less its author, was years from conception when I was 13.


message 19: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments Techno did not exist back then, I don't think. We wanted to be hard rock/metal, but were limited by the fact that nobody has a basement or a drum kit in NYC. I had asked for drums and been refused. Guitar was my second choice.


message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

Your loss was our gain then Sarah.



message 21: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments just thought with the 3 keyboards and drum machine sounds spitting out MIDI patches and you rockin' the guitar (strat copy?) you had a more industrial sound working. although Hellbound Train sounds more like a DK's title or something


message 22: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments My first guitar, actually -- LP Standard copy.

I think the problem here is that you're envisioning a band that sounded good in some way, Kevin. It wasn't so much alternative music as an alternative TO music.




message 23: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) You're too modest, Sarah.


message 24: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments LP equals Les Paul. In case you didn't know.


message 25: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) I knew that.


message 26: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I think it meant Les Paul. Unless it didn't.


message 27: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) *RA second guesses himself again*


message 28: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments at that time we all played les paul or strat copies. i had a cool memphis les paul copy in black with a black pickguard and white trim. no one i knew had a real guitar unless an older bro had a fender mustang or something like that


message 29: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments Correctamundo, RA. It's black and shiny and weighs about ninety pounds. Also, it never used to stay in tune, and it took me ten years to realize that I should replace the whole tuning mechanism.
New tuning heads=a guitar that stays in tune, but I still don't play it much because of the weight.


message 30: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments did it have a whammy bar? odd for a real LP but some copies had them and the cheaper tremelo mechanisms made it near impossible to keep in tune (especially after dive bombing)


message 31: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments No, just really lousy tuning heads.

My second guitar, which followed closely on the heels of that one, was a giant hollowbody no-name electric that was twice the size of me. THAT one had a whammy bar that, when used, would dramatically break all six strings at once. It made for an excellent finale, but wasn't much use before or after that. :)
